About this Item

oblong 8vo. Bound By Robert Hadrill in full crimson leather with gilt title on spine and blocked color illustration by Yaron on both front and back covers. Purple leather doublures and yellow endpages with design by Yaron. Silk headbands. Slipcase of dark red cloth with black leather trim. Unpaginated. Limited to only 51 copies, this is No. 1 of 10 De Luxe copies and is signed by the illustrator, Yaron Livay. An additional block printed in color by Yaron is tipped into each of the De Luxe copies. 72 full-page linocuts by Yaron printed on Zerkall mould-made; french folded. Title page and eight chapter headings in three colors, different for each chapter, printed in layers with gold as the middle tone. Other blocks printed in black. Proofing and color printing for the Special copies was done by Yaron on his own handpress. Printed on the handpress by Ian Mortimer (winner of the 1995 Felice Feliciano Prize). Yaron approached The Song of Songs in a fresh, naive manner, uninhibited by traditional preconceptions. After a year of drawing, preparation and block-cutting, he has created a stunning volume, vibrant with vitality and humor. The style is reminiscent of fifteenth century block-books, which were essentially picture books of a popular or religious character; illustrations and text being cut with the knife and printed on one side of the paper only. He says: "I did not want to adopt a reverential, symbolic or decorative approach: as I saw it, behind the exalted language were simply a man and woman who loved each other deeply. And I chose to use the whole of the text, combining it with the images to create an atmosphere of time and place." Bound By Robert Hadrill in full crimson leather with gilt title on spine and blocked color illustration by Yaron on both front and back covers. Purple leather doublures and yellow endpages with design by Yaron. Silk headbands. Slipcase of dark red cloth with black leather trim. Bookseller Inventory # 124139
