The Art of Practicing the Cello.

Wu, Robert (illus.)

Toronto: (Little Gem Press), 2002. (25)ff. One of 300 copies. A collection of musical advice compiled, illustrated, and printed by Robert Wu, with recommendations drawn from his personal experience. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of the British cellist Jacqueline du Pré and humorous full-page black & white line drawings throughout. This out-of-series copy features a designer binding by Wu depicting peacocks on each of the covers. The majestic birds are comprised of blue and green onlays and detailed gilt decoration on a background of scarlet morocco, accented with scattered violet foil and gilt tooling. With marbled endpapers by the artist, and housed in a small black velvet pouch. A Toronto-based fine bookbinder, Wu studied under Tini Miura and is a member of Designer Binders of America. He appreciates the challenges and delights of binding books on miniature scale and, on the colophon, describes miniature books as "wonders that provoke my imagination and curiosity." Very fine. (1 5/8 by 1 1/4; 41x34mm). Item #25467

Price: $475.00
