From the Vault Mondays

Mondays on the blog, art, and illustrations. New and from the vault.

In the spirit of Indie publishing, today's image is the half title page from Her People, a letterpress book I made in 1982. If you live in Iowa City, you can see this book in The University of Iowa's Main Library Special Collections.

Remember colophons?

Here's the colophon that appeared at the end of this Her People.

Her People was designed, illustrated and printed by Michelle Edwards.  All the Illustrations are linoleum prints. The type was set in 30 and 24 point Bulmer and was printed on Iyo Glazed in the Spring of 1982. 

Out of an edition of  18, you are holding number 1.
