Publication of this exciting new book will be on 8 November. We are offering a pre-publication price of 220 (plus shipping) for orders paid for before publication. After publication the price will be 250. Copies can now be ordered at our online shop.

If you have previously placed a firm order with us, please order through our shop now - a copy has been reserved for you!

If you are a Subscriber, stand by for a separate email to get your discount!

There will also be just ten special lettered copies - more details of these can be found at our website.

 


We have had a trial copy bound at Ludlow Bookbinders to ensure that all the parts fit together: suminagashi-marbled cover papers, end-papers, the text, thirty photographs, thirteen paper samples. And it looks splendid - see below. Each copy will have a unique sheet of suminagashi marbling on the boards by Sarah Amatt.

You can find out more about the book and see more photographs of the inside at our website.
