Phillip J. Pirages Catalogue 59

This catalogue focuses on historically interesting and decorative bindings, private press books, and other special limited printings. Bindings include 16th century blindstamped pigskin specimens, works distinctively bound for important collectors, superb works by masters from Roger Payne to Cobden-Sanderson, and examples from modern designer bookbinders. There are books from the major "golden age" private presses, including Ashendene, Kelmscott, and Doves, as well as from modern firms continuing that great tradition, such as the Arion Press.
