MYTH. Myths of the Greeks selected from Accounts by Hesiod, Homer, Apollodorus, Aeschylus, Ovid & others.
London: Susan Allix, 2011. No. 11 of 28 copies. 35 prints accompanying the hand-set text by Susan Allix, created from original portrait drawings and sketches. The etchings and other intaglio processes are cobined with lino-cuts. The wire heads were made as sculptures and then photographed. Printed in blue, brown, green, purple and black in Bell, 18 pt. Roman and Italic, on mould made Somerset. 14 x 11 inches, 35 x 28 cms, bound by Susan Allix in full black and red goatskin and cream calf with beautifully spaced 'random' red lettering spelling Myth many times on the spine, on the upper cover is a white goatskin panel positioned at an angle with a print of a nude on it. Housed in a red cloth box with morocco labels on spine and upper cover. Allix's latest book and an extraordinary piece of work for which she won the Judge's Choice award at the Oxford Fine Press Fair. She combines accounts of Greek Myths with an interpretive series of portraits of people who characterise and might live in the stories. The book is divided into 5 themed chapters: Creating the World; War and Punishment; Sea, Sky and Underworld; Desire and Personalities in which Allix often focuses on lesser known myths. As always with Allix books she uses everything to convey her ideas- words, prints, typography, structure and binding.
