POSTERS FROM WHITTINGTON 1996 - 2013 With an Introduction by John and Patrick Randle
Risbury, Herefordshire Whittington Press 2013. First Edition, ONE OF ONLY 60 COPIES WITH 30 POSTERS INCLUDED. Including the normal copies, only 140 HANDNUMBERED COPIES were issued. Included with this copy is also the publisher's large illustrated prospectus with tipped-in specimen sheet. With wood engravings on the half-title and colophon by Hellmuth Weissenborn along with the 30 tipped-in posters on various papers, many of which printed in colours, many are large and fold out. Super folio, in the original binding by the Fine Book Bindery of half buckram over paper boards with woodblock on upper cover, coloured endpapers, the book is contained in a folding chemise-style case with silk ties. 2 + posters preceded by captioned leaves pp. A very fine copy, pristine and as from the press. A BEAUTIFUL PRODUCTION AND VERY SCARCE DUE TO THE VERY LIMITED NUMBER PRODUCED. The Whittington Press produces posters mostly as a form of distraction from their more complex projects and typically in very small numbers. Over time these have become an important tool for spreading word of the Press' activities and goals. In the eighteen years of printing and design represented in this collection the Press produced approximately 150 posters, but selected the 30 with the greatest variety of typefaces and papers to be collected here. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
