Book of the Month:

Peter D. Verheyen – Ultimo by John and Ruth Vassos, 1930

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.
