About this Item

Small folio. (266) pp. One of 1050 copies signed by Francis Russell Flint, the artist's son. This richly illustrated work covers the varied career of this Scots artist, perhaps best known for his work with the Riccardi Press. It was published on what would have been Flint's 90th birthday, in accordance with his wishes; but he passed away just five months shy of that milestone. This book has been specially bound by Elizabeth Greenhill in full blue Oasis, featuring her characteristic "cloud" design comprised of multi-colored onlays. Here, the onlays are turquoise, black, green, pale red, and gray. These are interspersed with small straight horizontal lines tooled in gilt. Spine title in gilt. A.e.g. Greenhill credits John Harthan with coining the term "cloud" to describe her most typical binding style. He notes that this treatment is most often given to poetry, and that the variations in design and color "establish the binder's personal reaction to specific texts." In the present example, which was bound in 1971, the small gilt lines streaking across both panels almost seem like a horizontal rain against these colorful formations. Very fine in morocco-backed folding case. (Catalogue Raisonné 62). Bookseller Inventory # 22184
