Book Design by Walton Mendelson for:
13.5 X 16.75 inches, 72 pages, 1 page text, 67 duotone images with warm spot varnish. Hardbound.
Metaphysics in Jars,
Book Block: 7 hours—book design and typesetting: each page was optically centered
Photo Editing:
<400 hours—At the peak of a 30 year collaboration (see also The Music of Frederick Sommer), Nazraeli Press agreed to publish a collection of collagraphs, Metaphysics in Jars. The book was to be printed on a standard offset lithograph press, and the printer (O.G.P.) wanted to scan the images themselves. To keep costs down, I reprinted all of the images (67) on the same silver-gelatin photographic paper and toned in the same way so that the scans would be more consistent.
Cover: >1 hour
Book Design:
Printed in China, the costs were low enough to justify the large size. Many of the images were printed full size. Many of the images were landscape format and we did not want the reader to have to turn the book, while at the same time having enough height for the verticals. The large page size gives the images breathing room.
