Decorating Papers
Vancouver, British Columbia: Heavenly Monkey Editions, 2014. First edition. Two Volumes. Large, thick quartos (9.5 x 12.5"). One of Only 30 Copies, magnificently bound by Claudia Cohen in decorated paper over black leather-edged boards with gilt stippling, black leather spine with bold gilt circles and sold 'half-moons,' exquisite marbled paper endsheets, the one closest to text being free (i.e. attached as leaf, but not mounted on paper backing, as issued). Printed on superb Arches mould-made paper in letterpress by David Clifford at Black Stone Press. Designed by Hodgson with expert text and Cohen's phenomenal binding and paper selection, this will doubtless become a landmark in decorating paper design, specimen and printing. There are about 500 examples of original patterned papers from Europe, Asia and North America. The book includes original samples of marbling, paste decoration, embossing, pulp manipulation, lithography, block and linocut printing, stenciling, and airbrushing from the 19th and 20th centuries, along with contemporary examples (some made especially for this book). A sampling of Dutch gilt and block-printed papers from the later 1700s to early 1800s are also included. The text (approximately 80 pages) spans two volumes, interspersed with the many samples, and includes descriptions of techniques and history, along with an extensive bibliography. Fine and unused in original large folding blue cloth box with decorated paper-covered spines (4" wide) both inside and out, and morocco gilt label. With publisher's two-page advance prospectus i(with examples in color) in original decorated paper envelope.
