Making up pages for Jekyll and Hyde

4 February 2010

Later this year we’re publishing an illustrated edition of RL Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Or rather, it’s being published by Hand & Eye Editions, which we run with Brian Webb. It will be illustrated by Angela Barrett, and of course we’re very excited about it.

Our Monotype machines, one of which you can see in the background of the picture, aren’t running yet, so the book has been set by Harry McIntosh in Edinburgh. We’ve now had thirty galleys of 10-on-12 point Plantin from him, and we’ve been busy making them up into pages.
