INK ON THE ELBOW.
by Esslemont, David and Gaylord Schanilec
Printed in an edition of 200 copies of which this is one of 100 copies issued in the American binding. Finely illustrated with wood engravings by Schanilec, including a magnificent foldout panorama of the Welsh countryside, and color linocuts by David Esslemont. There are also tipped-in original leaves throughout from books produced by each press. A record of email correspondence between David Esslemont and Gaylord Schanilec with additional notes and illustrations. "In one way, the correspondence of Gaylord and David is a daybook chronicling the seasons of the year in Wisconsin and Wales. In another way, it is a diary, with production notes, of editing, printing, and producing some important books. It is also a log of two personal journeys, a record of the writers' struggles to manage personal lives and professional lives in the midst of children, book fairs, accolades, and calamities. Still another important story is Gaylord and David's continuing dialogue about their current printing projects and the implications of their individual printing decisions. These conversations raise a number of interesting issues," (introduction). With introductions by J. Andrew Armacost and David Chambers. Officially published at Oak Knoll Fest X.
