|r u l e s ||Rules for Bookbinders
by Fritz Eberhardt is a unfinished poem written in German and English
before Fritz's death. The stanzas were lettered so that each stanza is
presented in both languages on a page, separated by a sketch by Fritz.
The English is done in a free, sans serif italic while the German in
done in a condensed blackletter with Roman capitals. The lettered pages
were then made into line cuts at Scranton Engraving and printed on the
Washington handpress onto dampened Hannemuhle Ingres paper. The page
size is 5" x 7". The books are nonadhesively bound into paste paper
semi-limp wrappers with a label on the front cover. |
The first 25 copies were reserved for the Eberhardt family and the copy
numbers are Roman numerals. The remaining 75 received Arabic
numeration and were priced at $120.00 per copy. The edition is out of print.
