“Plain Brown Wrapper…”

20131101_4419web…well, not quite plain. This afternoon I designed this sleeve to go around the books of the first edition. I still have to order sealing wax and a seal, which I want to affix to the back of the wrapper.
I am really happy with how well the cover works. The pages lay pretty flat when opening the book, and the interleaven tissue is just the right seize.

    How much will you be selling the books for?

    • Hi Dave, the short answer is $65.00
      The long answer is that this edition is ‘spoken for.’ I do have one of the artist’s proofs for sale at that price at our exhibition space in town.
      Frankly, I don’t really know what to do about it, and how to price it, or whether to even offer it for sale. On the one hand $65.00 seems pretty high for a book [I would be VERY reluctant to pay it]. On the other hand it is a ridiculously low price, considering the work that goes into making it.
      I wish there were an easy answer!

  2. The open books have a very good look to them….it’s been a really successful project. Congratulations.

    They’re worth every cent, Christian. Great to see these images presented in this way.

  4. Thank you Simon! I just made some more covers this afternoon – still having problems keeping the occasional spot of glue off the cover! :)
