The text portion of WELLS & SONNE is nearing completion. Interns and I have set over 100,000 typographic characters – mostly Cheltenham 12 point. Next week we begin printing the first 4-color image that will go into the book. It will require over 400 hand pulled prints to assure I’ll have enough closely registered prints to complete the edition.
The work of the press will be on display at the Codex International Book Fare held in Berkley, CA February 10-13, 2013. The Codex Foundation mission is to preserve and promote the hand-made book as a work of art in the broadest possible context and to bring to public recognition the artists, the craftsmanship, and the rich history of the civilization of the book.
