About This Item

Council Bluffs, Iowa: Yellow Barn Press, 2001. First edition, one of 175 copies (this, no. 40); folio, pp. 140; 22 color plates, 58 illustrations, many of them John DePol's wood engravings, text in 14-point Perpetua, an Eric Gill design; quarter black Oasis goat skin with a DePol pattern paper over boards, leather spine label, cloth clamshell box; fine. Original bifoliate prospectus with 2 tipped-in photographs laid in. Neil Shaver began his Yellow Barn Press in Council Bluffs, Iowa in the 1960s, but it wasn't until 1979, after having studied printing with Harry Duncan, that the press produced its first book. Throughout the eighties and nineties, the press continued to publish titles noted for their quality of design and high craftsmanship in production, in particular, books of poetry and books about books or books about printing such as the successful Elbert Hubbard: William Morris's Greatest Imitator, American Iron Hand Presses, and John DePol: A Celebration. Included are a history and comments by Neil Shaver.
