TANNER, Robin & Heather. OLD STILE PRESS. ~ A Country Alphabet.
No. 87 of 160 numbered copies, signed by the author and artist on the half title. 27 drawings by Robin Tanner. Printed in Poliphilus in Blado on Zerkall mould made paper and set at The Whittington Press. 8vo., original brown morocco backed printed paper covered boards, printed in a design by Tanner and bound by Smith Settle, in cloth and paper covered slipcase. An extremely good copy.
Robin Tanner’s illustrated alphabet was transferred onto blocks and then printed by Nicholas MacDowall at his press in Blackheath. Tanner’s wife Heather wrote beautiful pastoral ‘riffs’ to accompany each letter. A delicate, charming book and a great use of the talents of all the collaborators.
