Go back


The eight original poems by Ruth Fainlight, inspired by a suite of eight mezzotints by Judith Rothchild, were published in an edition of 30 in September 2002. The texts, about birds, feathers, emotions and memories, respond to the images. The mezzotints and the embossments on the title page and table of contents were printed by the artist on Hahnemülhe paper.The hand-set letterpress, in Vendôme Romain, was printed by Mark Lintott on a Stanhope press . The slipcases and clamshell boxes are by Claude Vallin and Mark Lintott. The wrappers of Canevas paper, by Thibierge & Comar, were screen-printed by the artist.

 The first eight copies, the édition de tête, are presented in clamshell boxes. They contain one of the original copper plates, an additional mezzotint and a poem in the hand of the author.
Numbers 9/30 to 30/30 are presented in slipcases.
All the books are numbered, and signed by the author and the artist.
