About This Item

Oxford: Alembic Press with Peter and Donna Thomas, 1990. Soft Cover. Near Fine binding. Half-sheet octavo. 25, [7] pp. Limited edition, number 103 of 114 copies. As issued, sewn on thick parchment thongs with calligraphic writing mimicking manuscript waste, and laced into heavy handmade paper wrappers with printed paper title label on the front cover. Printed in blue and black Caslon on handmade paper, made by the Wookey Hole Paper Mill where Glanville, the subject of this interview, worked. Two woodcuts by Donna Thomas, each with laid in tissue guard. A wonderful production of a fascinating glimpse into the life of an English papermaker that spanned most of the 20th century. Glanville started at the Wookey Hole Mill just before the First World War and his reminiscences are at once personal and instructive, speaking to the craft and trade of making paper by hand.
