This extremely limited edition is hand-bound and made from start to finish by the artist, in-studio. The heavyweight matte-coated paper is printed with Chromalife100 archival inks using a Canon Pro9000 that produces a superb quality, finer than that of commercial printing-presses. These are then hand-sewn into an A4 book that includes beautifully marbled Amate end-papers and a signature plate featuring an original drawing, unique to each copy. The cover is full-bound in a sheet of plain black “Dainel” suede, and finished with a slim wrap-around title print.
Each copy will be numbered, and the first has already been donated to The SETI Institute. It was auctioned at the first SETIcon, eventually going to Robyn Asimov and raising $1200 in aid of the institute’s scientific research into life and its origins.
How to Purchase
This edition is made-to-order at a price of £400. Purchases are limited to a maximum of one per month due to the time it takes to order the materials, print, bind and press the books. If it is desired, the buyer may request their own choice of binding material and end-papers from the stock of the supplier, or a particular subject for the signature plate drawing.
Each monthly slot will be filled on a first-come first-serve basis. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in purchasing a copy, or pre-ordering a slot if there is currently a waiting list.
