Marcham, England: The Alembic Press, 1998. Approximately 2 1/2 x 2 3/4". 71 pp. First Edition. LIMITED EDITION of 140 copies. Decorated paper boards with printed labels, accordion fold-out sections, numerous black and white arabesque patterns, cast in 9/10 point Old Style by David Bolton, designed, printed, and bound by Claire Bolton, in fine condition.

Nearly all the Alembic Press's books are about, or illustrate, aspects of letterpress printing, type, illustration, or paper and bookbinding. This beautiful miniature explores Monotype Arabesque units 310-315. An arabesque is a "repeat decorative pattern that incorporates some life form such as leaves, birds or flowers." These patterns were thought to have been designed by Robert Granjon around 1565 in Antwerp.
