Amid the noise emanating from recent news about the countries that comprise the British Isles, we offer a small oasis in the form of the following e-catalogue, celebrating the region's many contributions to fine printing. We have gathered together examples of fine printing from across the principal countries of the British Isles; and although this list is heavily weighted toward English presses, we have included work from the Foulis Press of Scotland, the Dolmen Press of Ireland, and the Gregynog Press of Wales.
Summer in Massachusetts is synonymous with Cape Cod. It is also the sale season. In light of this confluence, we are pleased to present our summer sale list, the subject of which is the Cape's best-known resident, Edward Gorey. The majority of his works in our shop are now on sale for 40% off, including newly added groupings of ephemera, calendars, periodicals, and more.
Our first miniature book list in several years, this e-catalogue includes featured items ranging from the Alembic Press’s handsome Te Deum Laudamus to a 19th-century octagonal manuscript Koran, highlighted in gold and housed in a silver box. We also produced a second list of over 100 miniature books priced below $200, which can be viewed here.
The following list contains a cross-section of works from both the Arion Press and the Limited Editions Club.
In conjunction with the Bromer Gallery show "Goldman and Lee: Shadow and Color," we also have a small exhibit of woodcut books and prints on view in our book showroom. This group contains items from many of our specialty areas, including children's books, early examples of printing, both as complete works and incorporated into leaf books, and books and prints by fine presses, from a Pre-Raphaelite-inspired Dutch title, to two deluxe editions of David Esslemont's publications, Chili Recipe and Pizza from Scratch.
There is something undeniably magical about opening a book with elements that move or change thanks to clever paper engineering. With that in mind, we present the following fine selection of recently acquired movable and pop-up books with a pleasure bordering on that of a child receiving one of these as a gift. Featured in this e-catalogue are books, toys, and cards produced between the 19th and 21st centuries by notable publishers and paper engineers, such as Dean & Son, A. Capendu, and Vojtech Kubasta.
