Newly acquired!  Romeo and Juliet from Emily Martin of the Naughty Dog Press.  Stop by after Christmas to view it on the new acquisitions shelf in the Reading Room.
Romeo and Juliet (Naughty Dog Press) is a new book from Emily Martin,who teaches bookbinding and book arts classes here at the Center for the Book. Romeo and Juliet includes one line of dialogue to represent the story being told in each of the five acts, emphasizing the timelessness of the play through repetition of the chorus, and insertion of modern equivalents for Verona. This carousel book uses a format that Emily Martin devised to allow for scenes and separate text panels. The spine tabbing, also of her devising, functions both to hold the book together and to balance the thickness at the fore-edge. The text lines were letterpress printed onto Mohawk Superfine 100 lb Text paper. The images were made with an ink transfer monoprinting technique. The covers are printed on a handmade flax, abaca and linen paper from papermaker Mary Hark. Edition of 9 with one artist’s proof. (Adapted from the artist’s colophon).
