Parenthesis 20

4 April 2011

Cover of Parenthesis 20The latest issue of Parenthesis, the journal of the Fine Press Book Association, arrived last week. We were particularly keen to see it, because we designed and printed the cover. The numerals were cut in wood by Michael Harvey and we set everything else in metal by hand and by machine.

Parenthesis is published twice yearly, with alternate issues being produced in the UK and North America. The UK editor is Sebastian Carter, who once again has put together an exciting issue. Can you really afford to miss articles about the resurgence in French book design in the final year of the Second World War? Or posters at the Whittington Press? Or Times Classic, a significant improvement on Times New Roman? The list goes on. All that and our cover.
