I am pleased to bring you news of Ink on the Elbow - Conversations between
David Esslemont and Gaylord Schanilec, mostly about making books. One
hundred and fifty-five pages, illustrated with colour linocuts, engravings,
tipped in images and sample pages from our books.
Specifically for this group there are many references to my early attempts to
make polymer plates : how I first used one of my kid's teddy bears to wash out
plates; up to the acquiring of a platemaking machine; and much discussion of
the wole photopolymer issue.
This will be a co-publication with Midnight Paper Sales, half the edition of
two hundred will be bound by each artist - giving you the collector the
difficult choice of which binding to choose.
I invite you to visit my website www.solmentes.com where you find full
details of INK ON THE ELBOW. Follow the links to read about the contents
details, view all the illustrations together with pictures of the bindings
including the Esslemont special binding.
The book will be published first in America at the Oak Knoll Book Fest in
Delaware on Friday 3 October -(I look forward to meeting you), then in the UK
the Oxford Fine Press Book Fair in Oxford on 1 November.
I hope you like what you find.
