About this Item

One broadside and one typed sheet promoting the 121st publication of the Perishable Press: a volume of poems by Reeve Lindbergh illustrated with paintings by John Wilde, "ostensibly a children's book concerning apples." The limited edition is here described as "an attempt to show how books grow from idea to artifact," with "surprises to delight the receptive and confound the costive." The broadside showcases Walter Hamady's inimitable style, both textually and typographically: The header is a jumble of decorative letters from the words "John's Apples," and faint shadow text runs behind the main body of text, which in addition to the statements of purpose includes a pithy comment from the painter's ten-year-old granddaughter. The printing was done in gray-green, red, and black on cream-colored handmade paper with one deckle edge. The typed sheet, which starts out with "Some critical acclaim and just plain comments about John's Apples aka the apple book," offers blurbs and quirky reader responses to John's Apples. While this is a fairly simple and straightforward production by the Perishable Press's standards, Hamady clearly could not resist at least a touch of his usual flair, typing a number of lines in diagonal directions with reckless disregard for the straight and level. Folio (30.3 cm, 12" & 27.9 cm, 11"). [1] f., [1] f. Broadside with two nearly invisible mailing folds; one corner very slightly creased, otherwise unworn and clean. Sheet likewise with mailing folds, otherwise crisp and fresh. => Appealing and uncommon Perishable Press ephemera. Bookseller Inventory # 31234
