The Lettered edition is limited to twenty-six copies signed by the author and artist. The text pages are set in Palatino nova types and the edition is a Bradel binding with a Goatskin spine, and handmade paper boards. The cover paper is made by master paper maker Amanda Degener in her windowless basement workspace which is a ‘cave’ of hewn rock walls. The floor is an unsteady mix of concrete, brick, and in some areas a wooden raised floor, giving way to the earth below. Endsheets are hand marbled in a small village in Southern France with oil based pigments on acid free Fabriano Ingres. The edition is housed in a clamshell box.
