Matrix 21

Risbury, England: Whittington Press, 2001. Hardcover. Number 65 of 80 copies of the deluxe edition. There were 825 total copies printed including 745 copies of the regular edition. This is one of the special copies of the annual publication of Matrix, one of the foremost publications on the book arts during its 36 year existence. Sadly, Matrix 36, published in 2020, was the last annual edition of the Matrix series. After 36 years, Whittington Press owners, John and Rose Randle, decided to discontinue producing this fine annual for printers and bibliophiles on the book arts that compiled articles, illustrations, paper and typography samples and book reviews. This issue includes a number of articles by such well-known bibliophiles and book artists as Martyn Ould, Gaylord Schanilec, Ruari McLean, John Dreyfus, and Jerry Kelly. Interspersed throughout are photographs, printing samples, and illustrations. Inserted in a back pocket is the prospectus for this volume. Quarter bound in purple Oasis leather with blue and purple marbled boards. Letterpress printed in Caslon, Fournier, and Garamond types on Somerville Laid and Zerkall Mould-made papers. The deluxe copy includes a separate folder with lavender paper boards containing a Prometheus Press booklet titled 'Royauté ' that was issued in an edition of five copies by Frederic Prokosch. Both volume and folder are housed in a lavender stiff board slipcase. In fine condition. Matrix volume and folder measure 8 x 11 inches. BOB/102621. Near Fine.
