A handbook discussing tools, type design, printing, binding, etc. Used to produce a finely printed book of poetry. Quarter blue cloth with spine label and printed paper-covered boards. Internal pages are clean and crisp with no markings.
Binding is solid: sharp corners, tight spine. The only problem was that the volume has tonined a couple of inches down on front and back covers (see photos)-transferred from the original dust jacket (made out of book's text paper). Appendix: the Poem on the Page [examples]. 11" x 7-1/4" x 3/4.
