Artists' Books Collection

Word

Description:

Fourteen visually talented students and their instructor wrote and produced this ... book printed by letterpress ... The front and back matter were fancifully set in 12 pt. Gill Sans. The opacity and printability of Softwight Somerset Book 175 gsm paper appealed to the students. Imagery emerged directly from the type cases rather than from our usual linoleum blocks. the evocative leaf between sections was chosen for its translucency and colorful visual qualities. It was made in the Philippines from finely spun fibers. The spine of the seventeen signatures exposes the copper-colored thread sewn over Tyvek-reinforced tapes attached to the black Japanese bookcloth cover. This is number 37 in an edition of 94 copies. --Colophon. Signed by the professor and her students.
