Printed in an edition limited to only 145 numbered copies by Henry Morris (Berger A60). Broadside Vignettes joins the typographic aspect of the poster/broadside format with the contentual character of the book, creating a hybrid with some of the best qualities of both. Each of the twenty-one folders holds a complete and different "short story," almost all of which are on subjects dear to the hearts of the book collector, private press connoisseur, or hand-papermaking enthusiast. Two of the twenty-one folders consist of two sheets, and one includes four sheets. Each is printed in two or more colors on a wide variety of imported and domestic papers, with an even wider variety of uncommon type faces. All but two of the vignettes are generously illustrated. Henry Morris has worked steadily on this for eight months and has told us that he has never spent so much time, worked harder, or found more satisfaction and pleasure in any previous undertaking. He issued this volume with the goal of producing a new volume each year. And don't worry about how to shelve this giant folio, for Henry has included a simple and practical suggestion regarding the convenient storage of this large case. Fine condition.
