Despatches (Signed Limited Edition)
Santa Cruz, CA: Foolscap Press, 2008. First Edition. First Edition. Three volumes housed in a paper slipcase. One of 185 numbered copies, (this being No. 58) signed by the author Michael Katakis. A beautiful and tantalizing glimpse into the transformative nature of travel. A selection from many years of travel. The deliberate spelling of "Despatches" pays homage to T. E. Lawrence, Gertrude Bell and Mungo Park. Selected from travels to Sierra Leone, Morocco and Greece; in the center of each book is a map and ten photographs taken by the author are tipped-in variously throughout the set of three. Printed letterpress on Magnani Vergata paper and each wrapped in Camel Hahnemühle Ingres paper covers, the three books slip into a "dispatch case," made of O'Malley Crackle handmade paper from Cave Paper. The photographs are archival pigment prints, using Epson Ultrachrome inks on cotton, acid free Velvet Fine Art paper. Books are 4.5 x 8 inches each. Fine and unread in three volumes housed in a Fine paper case.
