This morning I received an exciting announcement from Frances McDowall of the Old Stile Press in Monmouthshire. Frances writes,

‘We now have an advance bound copy of Equus — the powerful play by Sir Peter Shaffer which has recently been staged in London and on Broadway — and here it has images by Clive Hicks-Jenkins.  The details of the edition — and how the book came about — are on our blog. We do not have the bound version of the Special Edition to show you but we attach a photograph of the extra ‘goodies’ which will go into the drop-back box with the book itself, which will be the same as the main edition. [These extras include] an articulated maquette with a second version for you to make up should you so wish; a signed, original preparatory drawing; and an original linocut also signed by Clive Hicks-Jenkins. [Shown here.]

We will launch the book at The London Art Book Fair at the Whitechapel Gallery on 25 September and would like to give anyone who we think might be seriously interested in the Special Edition (10 copies only) the opportunity to be in touch with us before we go there. We are very excited about the whole production and hope that you may share that excitement.  Since we first worked with Clive on The Affectionate Shepherd we have loved his imagery and his approach to the marriage of text and image; you might enjoy looking at the range of magnificent work on his website.’
