Woven and Interlocking Book Structures from the Janus, Steiner and Gefn Presses.

Newark, VT: Janus Press, 2002. Quarto text volume, plus sixteen 32mo. samples. 142pp.; samples variously paginated. One of 200 copies, signed by Claire Van Vliet. A trade copy of Van Vliet and Elizabeth Steiner's how-to manual on creating non-adhesive book structures is accompanied by miniature models of each of the techniques described therein, executed by Audrey Holden. The models serve to make clear in three dimensions what is often difficult to discern in two and, as Ruth Fine notes in The Janus Press—Fifty Years, are elegant and skillfully executed book objects in their own right. The models are divided into four non-adhesive slipcases with the names of the represented techniques printed on each. A letter from Van Vliet is laid in. All components housed together in a drop-back box with the colophon printed on the inside front board. Fine. Item #30711

(Janus checklist pp. 40-43, 58-59).
