La fete de boites continue....
Yes thats right...more boxes....a selection of the latest includes my 3rd gravity's rainbow,and a box for a signed Hemingway.
The Hemingway title is stamped, as there were 2 editions(both boxed),and the lower case type was requested for this.
Other than that, all of the boxes since the middle of 2006 are hand-lettered.That is not to say that I have not used plates to stamp onlays..more about that later.I avoid it as much as possible, because it can make the boxes look generic, but in those cases where there is a specific requirement to reproduce particular artwork, it is usefull
Printed onlays with regular and half-tone plates, taken from the dust jackets
