Paper Should Not Always Be White.

Cohen, Claudia (illus.)

Vancouver, BC: Heavenly Monkey, 2013. Octavo. (32)ff. From an edition of thirty copies, this is the studio copy. The text in the book is from the fifth part of Updike's essay, "The Seven Champions of Typography," in which he describes how one's choice of paper influences the printing on it. Rollin Milroy of Heavenly Monkey endeavors to illustrate this idea by printing the passage in Caslon type on different varieties of paper. The papers include earthy Japanese Kaichu Shi, a tissue carried by women in their kimonos; Azure by Barcham Green in a pale shade of blue; and Czech handmade paper from Velke Losiny. The book opens with an epigraph by William Everson, poetically explaining how, in printing, paper is "the field on which the whole thing can act." Uniquely bound in full marbled paper over boards, with paper spine label. Fine. Item #30592

Price: $1,250.00
