Neil Farber | Carol Es - Progress!
Well, this spring has been unexpectedly busy for non-book reasons, so our output has been expectedly slow. But! We're working! Here is a photo of the first fully-bound version of our Neil Farber | Carol Es book that will be available early next month. This copy is missing the cover plates, which are still being designed. Otherwise, this is how they will look.
Here are some deets:
-Bound in a single 33" long sheet of Fabriano Murillo mould-made paper.
-Stab-bound by hand with waxed linen thread in two opposing sections.
-Sports a spiffy cover plate of an original image printed either letterpress or silkscreen (TBD) on jet-black Japanese Kozo handmade paper.
-Includes 16 new & unpublished ink and watercolor drawings by each artist plus an original title page plate. 15 drawings are digital prints on Hammermill 80lb cover stock, and one drawing plus the title plate are printed using archival pigment ink on Canson Mi-Tientes paper.
-Includes an archival pigment ink print on Cason Etching Rag of a collaborative drawing by both artists. This is a big deal (trust me).
-Signed by both artists (as is the collaborative print).
Limitation: 30 copies, 18 for sale.
