Matrix 27

Risbury, England: Whittington Press, 2007. Hardcover. Number 21 of 70 copies of the deluxe edition. There were 750 total copies printed including 680 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 on the book arts for printers and bibliophiles 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 Gaylord Schanilec, Abigail Rorer, John Randle, Sebastian Carter, and William Peterson. Interspersed throughout are photographs, printing samples, and illustrations. Inserted in a back pocket is the prospectus for this volume. Quarter bound in yellow Oasis leather with black, gray, and orange marbled boards. Letterpress printed in a number of types including Joanna, Goudy Modern, Times Roman and Poliphilus, and Centaur types on Somerville Laid and Hahnemühle papers. The deluxe copy includes a separate mauve paper covered folder holding two large linocuts by John Smith and Andrew Anderson. Both volume and folder are housed in a mauve stiff board slipcase. In fine condition. Volumes measure 8 x 11 inches. BOB/102621. Fine.
