        Of light and shade from the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci. Chapters 118 to 127...as compiled, translated and edited by Jean Paul Richter in 1883. Intaglio prints by Judith Rothchild

      Verdigris Press [Octon, France]: Verdigris Press. 2009. One of 9 copies, from a total issue of 15 (6 with original copper plate), each copy numbered and signed in pencil by the artist on the colophon as well as initialing each plate. Page size: 9 x 11-3/4 inches; 20pp. Bound by Mark Lintott: loose in wrappers housed in slipcase covered with handmade papers screenprinted by Judith Rothchild in pink, blue and green showing Leonardo's larger sphere on the front cover and smaller sphere on the rear cover, black front wrapper embossed with circles, squares, and triangle, with white label printed in black with title and author, translator, and artist on front panel. Illustrated with six original full- page intaglio prints, endsheets with embosed spheres along bottom edge by Judith Rothchild. Ms. Rothchild has varied her print-making methods from her usual mezzotint to mezzotint with rocker, roulette and dry point all pulled by her from her original worked copper plates. The text has been set by Mark Lintott in Vendome Romain and printed by him on an Albion press and is taken from the 1883 Jean Paul Richter translation and edition of Leonardo's Notebooks, Capters 118-127. . Ms. Rothchild's intaglio prints are perfectly suited to Leonardo's text on light and shade. Her solid forms - whether a peach or skein of twine or wood cylinder - absorb light, reflect light, cast shadows, block light, in short, do all that they should to exemplify the text. See an Image.
