The Game of Saturn fine edition

June 29, 2017

The fine edition of The Game of Saturn by Peter Mark Adams was collected today from our fine bindery. Bound in quarter black python and shantung with custom marbled endpapers, gilt edges and finished with a silk ribbon and enclosed in a solander box. We opted to keep the python as natural as possible and preserve the contours of the skin, so each book is unique rather than being cut to a regular size. The detail is based on the lost Orphic bowl and depicts Phanes as the winged serpent dragon. Bibliophiles will note that the gilt ends reveal a red aspect beneath, a technique often employed on Bibles. We will be sending out copies next week to those who pre-ordered this edition. 
Please note, all the fine editions are sold out, though the hardback and paperback remain in stock.
