Matrix: A Review for Printers and Bibliophiles, Numbers 1 through 30. A complete run of the deluxe issues
Andoversford, Gloucestershire: Whittington Press, 1981-2012. Thirty volumes, plus the reprints of numbers one and two, as well as two index volumes (1-5 and 1-21). Limitation varies between 30 copies (number one) and 80 copies (number 26). A complete set of the deluxe issues of this invaluable periodical, printed at the Whittington Press. Illustrated profusely, including many printing samples and with the extra information, illustrations, and samples that typically accompany the deluxe issue. Matrix has become by far the finest periodical of the book arts of the twentieth century, surpassing even the seven-volume Fleuron issued in the 1920s. The contents include both retrospective material (Eric Gill, et al.) and information about presses active today. Issues I and II, far more limited than the later issues, have become very rare indeed. Bound in morocco-backed patterned papers. All volumes have slipcases, except for I and II, as issued. A few volumes show light sunning, else very fine.
