Plains, PA: Boss Dog Press, 2020. Hardcover. Number 28 of 50 regular copies, with an additional 10 copies unbound and 20 hors commerce. This book pays homage to the fine work of book binder Fritz Eberhardt, particularly known for his designs created by his own hand tools. It includes an introduction by Hans Halbey, who acquired most of Eberhardt's tools following his death, a short essay by Eberhardt about his work, and a catalog of Eberhardt's handmade finishing tools. Don Rash of the Boss Dog Press studied with Eberhardt and his hand binder wife Trudi. He writes a short preface describing Eberhardt's techniques in creating his beautiful bindings. There are seventeen plates showing examples of Eberhardt's bindings plus pictures of his tools. The catalog of tools has an illustration of the shape of each tool along with information on its dimensions. This work was compiled, designed, and executed by Don Rash. Bound in full decorated cream and black paper over boards with brown leather strips at the head and tail. The types used are digital versions of Herman Zapf's Aldus for the text and Michelangelo for the titling. It is printed made at the University of Iowa Center for the Book by Tim Barrett and his student co-workers. In fine condition. Measures 6.25 x 9 inches. 50 pages. BOB/112321. Fine.
