The Puppet Show (De Luxe)
Edition of 10, 2 in stock remaining

The third book in a series of four based on the poetry of Jonathan Swift.

The type is set  in 12 & 22 point Monotype Caslon Old Face series 128. Monotype’s interesting cut (1916) is an adaptation of the first designs released by William Caslon I, but nevertheless, while Swift was penning and publishing these four poems, Caslon’s ‘Roman and Italick’ types were also having their first outings (1725 — 1731).  These books have each been printed in an edition of just 50 copies. Numbers 1 – 40 comprise the standard copies with paper sides, A – J comprise the De Luxe copies which have been case bound & housed in slipcases by Tom Duffy in his studio at Dublin’s Five Lamps.

Paper: Zerkall 170 gsm smooth, Hahnemuhle Bugra Butten 130gsm
