One of only 35 copies for sale (out of an edition of 50). This beautifully produced edition of Watermark was letterpress printed and designed by Peter Rutledge Koch. The paper is Twinrocker Da Vinci, hand-made especially for this edition, with its own watermark designed by Christopher Stinehour & Susan Filter. Robert Morgan's photographs were digitally re-configured by Donald Farnsworth. The photogravure printing plates were made by Unai San Martin and were printed at Magnolia Editions under Donald Farnsworth's supervision. Once printed, the sheets were shipped to Venice, Italy, where the text was printed at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica di Venezia from Monotype Dante types cast at the Monotipia Olivieri in Milan. The press used was brought to Venice "on loan" from the Tipoteca Italiana Fondazione printing museum in Cornuda. Following the printing, the paper was shipped to the Berkeley studio where the book was bound in papers specially made for this edition by Cave Papers.
