Distinctly blurred: words of women bookmakers
- Jenny Sapora
The alphabet provides the framework for this series of reflections by and about women bookmakers. History’s record of bookwomankind is sparser than woman’s real involvement in the book arts, but here in their own words – enlightened or discouraged, grand or trivial, often humorous – some book women from past centuries offer us a glimpse into their lives. The author’s annotations provide historical context, suggestions, for further readings, and unify these diverse women from the personal perspective of a researcher exploring a rich but elusive subject. Letterpress printed from handset type. Calligraphic annotations reproduced from photopolymer plates, illustrations from wood block.
