‘Jekyll and Hyde’; or ‘We’re Going To Publish A Book!’

Sep 8, 2010 by

At Hand & Eye Letterpress, we occasionally publish books; later on this year, though, we’ll be taking a particularly large step into the fine press world, with our first full-length novel: a new edition of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stephenson.

The prospectus for Jekyll & Hyde

As you can see from the photo, Angela Barrett has been commissioned to illustrate the edition, and her illustrations are beautiful and terrifying.  The whole thing’s been set in Monotype Plantin, and is going to be printed on they grey Zerkall Ingres paper you can see in the photo.  It’ll be bound by hand, and in a very limited run.

We’re very excited  about the whole thing; if you’d like a copy of the prospectus, and the opportunity to order a The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde at a special pre-publication price, drop us a line at print@handandeye.co.uk and we’ll send a prospectus over.
