Lullaby by Richard Rowlands

Lullaby by Richard Rowlands

from 10.00

A pretty gift for new parents, poetry lovers or simply those who appreciate a nicely printed poem

"Sing lullaby, my little boy, Sing lullaby, mine only joy!" Richard Rowlands, the 18th-century Cavalier poet, captures the essence of mother and child in his poem Lullaby.

We've printed it as a single section booklet printed on Bugra Butten paper using Bembo type and sewn it into a variety of attractive decorated paper wraps, each with a label on the front cover. The title-page decoration uses a classic typographic border from the Caslon Foundry.

'It has been said that a photograph is the blink of an eye suspended in the closing of an eyelid, no more than a thin slither of time, place and event, frozen forever for us to contemplate, interpret and discuss. The words that accompany a photograph, be it a precisely worded caption or the handwritten scrawl on the back of a print, add to our understanding of that image. This relationship of word and image is something that has fascinated Ian McMillan and I for many years...' from Ian Beesley's introduction.

The Days Out, the Weeks Away is printed on Zerkall paper with Joanna types. It is 36 pages, and includes nine photographs tipped in and another four printed on the page.
