One of 6 copies, from a total issue of 15 (9 regular), this one of the deluxe copies with original copper plate, each copy numbered and signed in pencil by the artist on the colophon as well as initialing each plate, all on handmade yellow and cream Hahnemulhe papers. Page size: 9 x 11-3/4 inches; 20pp. Bound by Mark Lintott: loose in wrappers housed in custom-made clamshell box covered with handmade papers screenprinted by Judith Rothchild in pink, blue and green showing Leonardo’s larger sphere on the front cover and smaller sphereon the rear cover, black front wrapper of Keaykolour uni eben 300 g. paper embossed with circles, squares, and triangle, with white label printed in black with title and author, translator, and artist on front panel. Illustrated with six original full-page intaglio prints, endsheets with emboassed spheres along bottom edge by Judith Rothchild. Ms. Rothchild has varied her print-making methods from her usual mezzotint to mezzotint with rocker, roulette and dry point all pulled by her from her original worked copper plates. The text has been set by Mark Lintott in Vendome Romain and printed by him on an Albion press. Ms. Rothchild’s intaglio prints are perfectly suited to Leonardo’s text on light and shade. Her solid forms—whether a peach or skein of twine or wood cylindar—absorb light, reflect light, cast shadows, block light, in short, do all that they should to exemplify the text. $2,000.
