Orvieto; | A Poem By Jan Schreiber | with wood engravings by William Rueter.

[Dundas]: The Aliquando Press, [2001]. Oblong duodecimo, 12.8 x 15.8 cm. Cased in yellow Venetian decorated paper over boards, with printed title-label to the spine and gold ribbon fore-edge ties. Unpaginated [18 concertina fold leaves]. Some minor adhesive bleeding along the fore-edges of the seventh and eighth leaves has caused the two leaves to be joined at some point; and, at some later point, when the corresponding pages were opened, some minor lifting to the surface of the paper resulted. There is also some minor rubbing to the extremities of the fragile covering paper, else a fine copy. The text was set in Perpetua and Joanna type with Egmont Inline capitals used for display; printed in a few shades of green on three subtly different colours of Fabriano Tiziano paper. Illustrated with five wood engravings depicting the Tuscan landscape, also printed in green, by William Rueter. One of 60 copies, this being number 24. Item #219

"The book was inspired by some beautiful Venetian hand-decorated paper printed from the original 18th century rolls."
