This book has been made with our sophisticated 3 plate, 3 colour handmade prints on the cover and linen spine.
The pattern has been redrawn from a loose illustration into a tight repeat pattern from a found French drawing made in 1909.
We use the paper as the base colour. The heavy black areas are printed first followed by the tiny dots and vines and finally the small rounds are printed on the black areas.
The registration and time required to get this right is quite something. This is one of the most sophisticated recent letterpress projects we know of.
Our printing process is done entirely by hand. This means that there may be slight variances from sheet to sheet including "salting" which is where the print may have very slightly patchy areas.
