Ruscombe letterpress art edition

Each book offers an exceptional example of how the artist has interpreted the book. The book has been meticulously printed letterpress by hand on traditional cast iron Heidelberg Press one sheet and one colour at a time on paper handmade at the famous Ruscombe Mill in France.

In addition to signing each book, the author has inscribed in longhand a piece of text taken from the original novel.

Each volume is accompanied by a separate set of the six powerful woodcut images used within the book, printed on the same Ruscombe paper and separately encased. Each print has been signed by the author and artist, to create a set suitable for framing.
