Simon Brett - an Engraver's Progress
2013 - One of 175 unnumbered copies. Mission, British Columbia: Barbarian Press, The design concept is drawn from the contrast of the black ink to the white paper and the tiny details found in the illustrations. The endpapers, doublures, edge decoration, and second parchment boards are worked by rolling ink out, the resulting instinctive markings echo the actions of the printer creating depth and contrast to other stylized aspects of the book. Bradel binding covered in black and alum tawed goatskin and parchment. Multiple inlays. Black line and point work. Decorated top edge. Applied and sewn endbands with 'Manhattaning' to tailband. Hand worked black endpapers, pieced leather joints with matching edge to edge doublures. Housed in a custom two tray drop back box by the binder. Bound by Mark Cockram in 2014. 28cm x 40cm. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
