Book of the Month:
Peter D. Verheyen – Ultimo by John and Ruth Vassos,
Sewn on 3 frayed out cords; endpapers of black Japanese paper
with gold and silver flecking; graphite top edge with black and
grey sewn endbands; covered in full alum-tawed goat with décor
of raised leather onlays and surface gilding; title in graphite.
Ultimo tells the story of the death of the earth under blanket
of ice, man’s migration below the surface, and ultimate
emigration to a new world. The design is drawn from the stark
graphic illustrations of John Vassos. Just as man was marking
time before emigration, the 14+ year binding period was an exercise
in marking time. 25.5 x 19 x 2 cm. Bound 1995-2009.
