Murphy, Jamie
One Thousand, Seven Hundred and Fifty Three
Dublin: The Salvage Press, 2019. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine in Fine Archival Box. Tight, bright, and unmarred. 110 sections of 16 pages in adhesive-less medieval style binding on raised double linen chords, ebonised oak boards tapered to fit the swell of the spine. Large 8vo, printed in black, silver and green on 140gsm Zerkall smooth. Housed in a cloth covered solander box. Numbered limited edition of eight copies. Continuing with Murphy's pre-occupation with social commentary, this protest book aims to make tangible the current homelessness crisis in Ireland. The book is for the most part devoid of content (the seven printed pages are half title, title, introduction, colophon, pressmark), with each empty page dedicated to one homeless family, the scale of the situation becomes quite apparent when these pages amount to a book eight inches in thickness. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
Bookseller: Lux Mentis, Booksellers [United States]
