Each copy is entirely hand made from cover to cover, typeset by hand, letter by letter, in 12pt Monotype Poliphilus, and printed in full colour on Matrix Fine Laid paper cut to Small Post quarto (9 inches by 7 inches) on a fully restored 1926 vintage, 10cwt Arab Foolscap Folio treadle press. 150 copies available.
