Limited Release of The Shadow Over Innsmouth

THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH by H.P. Lovecraft (Limited Edition)
This book was produced the old fashion way…and the best way in my opinion. The type for this book was made of lead and pressed into the paper the same way the Gutenberg Bible was produced. The book is hand made from start to finish and and is a truly unique item indeed.
The total edition is 125 copies, 150 pp, small octavo (5 x 7.5 inches). The book features a fold-out map of Innsmouth, drawn from Lovecraft’s detailed descriptions of the town. The text is set in Centaur and Arrighi, with Gill Shadow for display. The pages were printed letterpress, in two colors, from polymer plates at David Clifford’s Black Stone Press in Vancouver, B.C.

This BATRACHIAN issue comprises 125 numbered (1 - 125) copies printed on Mohawk Superfine (an archival, acid-free paper), sewn & cased by hand in full black cloth with an image gold-stamped on the front board. This issue also features specially printed endpapers.
