An Advertiser's Alphabet

An Advertiser's Alphabet.. This is a super little book recently published by The Reading Room Press.
Great care and attention to all the details.
The text is wonderfully printed...

With the illustrations being so alive they dance out of the page. They have a spontaneous clarity and lightness of touch that delights the eye.
I will be working on three copies. One for the publisher, one for relatives of Ceri Richards and one for me. This is a very limited edition binding run. Though I will be working on all three at the same time each book will be different, each its own character with common elements threading the three together.
I would like to show what I do with some of my edition work. The bindings do not have to be the identical like a machine production line....
