[BKARTS] American Publishers' Bindings Catalog Update



American Decorated Publishers' Bindings, 1872-1929

The Limited Edition of 100 copies is now at the printer in Atlanta, GA, where it should be completed this week on an Indigo 5000 digital offset press. It has been expanded to 500 designs, with color illustrations of about 250 printed in the text sections and another hundred or so as smaller images in the checklist. This edition will be issued in a paper wrapper. A CD-ROM accompanies it, with images of all the books and variants and the database file in .xls and .txt formats.

The Deluxe Edition of 25 copies is being printed by photographic quality archival inkjet in my studio. It is slightly larger in format, and the checklist includes color images of all the cover art not in the text sections, for a total of over 500 images. This edition will be in a stamped cloth binding that is adapted from one of the designs in the collection. The CD-ROM is mounted in the back cover of this edition.

The CD-ROM is also available by itself, and includes the complete Deluxe Edition text and illustrations in PDF format, the database with images, and the html version of the checklist.

Subscribers receive a passcode for access now to the private website with the complete checklist and other resources.

About half of both the Limited Edition and the Deluxe Edition have already been subscribed. The pre-publication discount pricing expires October 8. This was extended from the original September 30 date to include the Oak Knoll Book Fest in New Castle, Delaware, where I will be showing this edition October 7 & 8.
