San Francisco: Book Club of California, 2016. 8vo, 292, (1, colophon)pp. With a frontispiece and 200 illustrations printed offset in 5 colors, and letterpress portions printed by Jerry Kelly in two colors. Original blue cloth, two-color typographic endpapers and letterpress titling label on upper cover, backstrip lettered in gilt, slipcase. New #180 of 300 copies numbered and signed by Bringhurst. Each copy also contains two inserts printed letterpress by Richard Seibert to accompany the book but printed in an edition of 500 copies. The original prospectus is also present. “A detailed and sumptuously illustrated account of the evolution of all members of the Palatino tribe...” by the poet, linguist, and typographer Bringhurst (b. 1946). This book, perhaps the most successful Book Club of California publication in (recent) history, sold out before publication. As a labor of love and a triumph of design and production, it will surely be ranked amongst the finest books of its kind ever issued. (Item Id: 107533)
