Anne Lee writes... I have now completed work on developing my handmade book, 'Solitude' by John Clare. In making this book I have used what I consider to be the best materials to suit the content and integrity of the style of binding. Hence, as you will see in the description on one of the photos, the book is bound Japanese style, with hinged covers of Japanese silk bookcloth and printed Hahnemuhle Bugra paper. The end papers are designed and printed with Clare's handwriting from his original manuscript. The pages are designed and printed by myself on Japanese Awagami Inbe paper.
I have previously had requests for this book. Because of the cost of these materials I can only make this book to order and will make a maximum edition of 20 signed and numbered copies at £35 per copy plus post and packing. On receiving orders I would expect a turnaround of about two weeks.
