On Book Design and Printing in the Twentieth Century

By: Blumenthal, Joseph

Price: $20.00

Publisher: New Yotk, The Spiral Press: 1965

Edition: Limited Edition

Seller ID: 276248

Condition: Fine

Very elegant booklet, designed with a simple beauty. Only 400 of these ran off the press in 1965, so they aren't turning up everywhere. What caught my attention is how relevant the subject is in today's resurgence of fine presses and small-run books and booklets. Blumenthal was the founder of The Spiral Press, a historian, a designer, and a fine printer. The booklet has a white card cover and its own grey dustjacket, both of which are pristine. It measures 5-1/4"x8" and has 19 pages of text. This is a wonderful addition to a collection of books about books. View more info
