"Four etchings (one handcolored and one with a second shadow printing), a linocut, block prints and various borders, dots and signs. It is made up of a variety of mould-made papers, including Arches, Somerset and Zerkall, which vary in size and sometimes have cutouts. Typefaces include Grotesque, Granby, Gill and Gallia, with Caslon, Bodoni, Engravers Roman and altered and un-altered wood letters. These are printed letterpress, by hand; with new intaglio plates and linocuts and old printer's blocks. Binding is of paper of assembled squares over boards; the spine black leather and board edges of black lacquered paper making a wavy-line frame for the paintings which are mounted and applied off-centre to the squares. [Special copies have all edges in leather.] Endpapers of bronze paper with handmade bronze-flecked paper doublures, cream flyleaves and lettered in red. Contained in a cream, portfolio-style folder"-- http://joshuahellerrarebooks.com/catalogue/a-new-book-by-susan-a llix-nonsense-nonsense (as viewed on 05/26-09)
