News from Whittington Press

Sunday, June 13th, 2010

John Randle just announced that the Whittington Press has a new website that includes lots of information on upcoming titles as well as a brief history of the press. What else is new at Whittington? Lost and Found: Rachel Reckitt’s wood-engravings for The Mill on the Floss, A Vision of Order: 35 linocuts by Andrew Anderson (for more on printing A Vision of Order, there’s a blog put together by the printer, Tom Mayo – it’s low on content now, so maybe bookmark it and check back later), and of course another issue of Matrix on the way.

Although it’s not new, I have to mention a book that I noticed while looking around the new site. Portmeiron was published in January 2009, but I hadn’t heard anything about it. If the one image from it (reproduced here) is any indication, Portmeiron is a pretty stunning book!

“A Line” from Incline Press

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

Incline Press recently published A Line by Suyeon Kim. The details:

In keeping with the linear nature of the story, we chose to treat the prints as a continuous illustration, each page turning into the next. To show the changing patterns of light throughout the day, the palest of tints was printed on each page, from the pale peach of dawn through the bright yellow of mid-day to the purples of dusk. Over this we printed Suyeon’s woodcut landscape, then her linocuts to plot the main lines of the story. Finally, in red and yellow watercolour, the finishing touch, by hand.

Front cover of "A Line"

A small edition, with only 150 copies for sale, A Line is made up of 16 prints printed on Velin Cuve BFK Rives paper from John Purcell Paper. The book is accordion folded into a hard cover and slip case, 10 x 7 inches. The case uses blue book cloth and handmade Korean paper, captured rather than glued so that the surface ripples on the boards. A hand-coloured seven-page prospectus, relating the story in words, accompanies each book.
