About this Item

quarto, 456pp. The Cranach Press, though located in Germany, was inspired by and became an integral product of the English private press movement. Following advice from Emery Walker, new typefaces were drawn by Edward Johnson, and cut by Edward Prince and George Friend; then Harry Gage-Cole was called in as pressman to print the wood engravings of Gordon Craig, Eric Gill, and Aristide Maillol. Their work is recorded in the book. Essays by John Dreyfus, Anne Hyde Greet, Gunnar Kaldewey, J.D. Brinks, Renate Muller-Krumbach, Lindsay Newman, among others. With extensive documentation and a new and illustrated bibliography. Designed by Sabine Golde and John Dieter Brinks. Lavishly illustrated throughout. "A masterpiece of classic book-design. Its clear concept, extremely well-balanced double pages and exquisite typography bear witness to optimum book-design. Finish and workmanship are likewise of the highest standard." - German National Book Award. New. Due November 2005. Bookseller Inventory # 14376
