THE TRAGEDIE OF KING LEAR
by Shakespeare, William
Printed in an edition limited to 160 signed and numbered copies. Printed with hand-set type at the Theodore Press on light grey paper hand-made especially for this book by Kate MacGregor and Bernie Vinzani. Claire van Vliet's woodcuts were printed by her at the Janus Press. She also individually decorated the stained birch boards. A superb edition of Lear, with engravings that eloquently convey the pain of the play, in a binding that suits the book perfectly.
