Dido and Aeneas
Theodore Press/Janus Press, (Bangor, ME 1989 - One of 150 copies signed by designer Claire Van Vliet. Produced to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Henry Purcell's Opera, this imaginative item can be read as a book with 37 printed surfaces or can be displayed as a panorama. Accordion-folded quarto-size pages of paper made by Van Vliet contain pulp-painted and shaped insert pages. Each fold of the accordion forms a stage set for one of the opera's scenes.The text follows the original printing of Nahum Tate's libretto, which was a "carelessly printed eight page pamphlet" distributed to the audience at the first performance in April, 1689. Enclosed in a cloth-covered drop-back box. In a pocket in the front of the box is a compact disc of a recording of "Dido and Aeneas." Fine. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
