Order Nr. 140199

Limited to 300 copies, of which this is one of 210 standard (A) copies. In fine condition.

From the artist's website: "The ideal way to document everything produced by a press is to do it yourself, so I am delighted that the Fleece Press Bibliography is now coming in small batches from the binders. Compiled by John Hodgson and myself, all 106 books and about 250 pieces of ephemera are carefully listed, with additional commentaries for each book and for many of the ephemeral entries. There is also my introductory essay, and I am honoured to have a Foreword by Sebastian Carter, whose long and distinguished career at the Rampant Lions Press, and much more besides, enables him to write with authority on private press publishing matters.

All Around the Block is published in a total edition of 300 copies. For over 40 years I have saved spare sheets from books, offcuts of patterned papers, and ephemeral pieces with a careful plan to include them with the Bibliography, and has been included in the versions below; you can be certain that the last Fleece Press book is just exceptional.

The book itself is the same for all three editions, quarter-bound in cloth and stunning marbled paper sides made by Antonio Vélez Celemin. Each copy includes original tipped-in examples, including book pages, individual engravings, patterned papers and ephemeral items."
