Dream gift for the transcendentalist typophile

PublishingMojo's picture

My fiancée surprised me with a just-because gift that blends her passion for New England history and literature--especially the Transcendentalists--with my love of the book arts.
It's "Spirit & Matter," selections from Emerson's Nature and Thoreau's Ktaadn with commentary by Elizabeth Hall Witherell, printed in an edition of 100 by Carolee Campbell at Ninja Press as a festschrift for the bicentennial of Emerson's birth in 2003. The paper is English Charter Oak, printed from handset Garamont and Erbar types, and sewn into a cover of handmade raw-flax paper.
I'm one happy typophile.
