Limited to 500 numbered copies, initialed by Mr. Stock. Catalogue for an exhibition listing twenty-one art bindings and two "book walls" (holders for sets of small paperbacks). Eleven black-and-white illustrations and twelve color illustrations. Stock's bindings represent a generally conservative approach to the book as art, in which the book has a more-or-less conventional structure and retains its function as a book. Some of the bindings depicted here use elements from older binding styles: straps, flaps, metal fittings, etc. With two photos of Mr. Stock.
