Poestenskill, NY: Kaldewey Press, 1983. From an edition of forty-two copies, this is one of seven printed on pink paper. This marks the very first book printed in Poestenkill, an event commemorated with a loose transparency of the tower of Poestenkill, the site of the press, before the title page. It is also one of the few Kaldewey books that do not use Helvetica, and the only book from the press employing more than one typeface. Each page represents an experimental printing using a different letter of the alphabet.

Tall quarto. 29ff. Bound by Christian Zwang in full soft pink calf, with stamped gilt letters playfully arranged across both covers. Few unobtrusive light scratches to the delicate leather, else fine, housed in publisher's black silk covered box. Item #31554

(von Lucius, pp. 62-63).

Price: $4,500.00
