by Carter, Sebastian
Limited to 225 numbered copies of which this is one of the 20 lettered copies bound thus and with the Clare Melinsky and Simon Brett illustrations signed by the artists, and the printer's Swan House drawing coloured by hand and signed. A beautifully executed private press miscellany issued a decade after their initial Miscellany. It presents samples of completed, projected, and at times purely whimsical work by the press with a strong emphasis on experimental typography. Many items are printed in various colors on a variety of papers. Includes a check-list of the work of this press operated by Will and Sebastian Carter that supplements the list published in the first miscellany.
