The only publisher’s catalogue in Europe to be typeset by hand.

The catalogue, in the 8vo oblong format, features 32 pages set by hand.

It lists the available books, each described both in its literary contents and typographical features (papers and editions, typefonts, formats).

While the texts have been typeset by hand in point 8 Garaldus typeface – designed by Aldo Novarese and cast by Nebiolo, in Turin –, the names of the authors and the titles have been set in point 10 Garamond, cast by Deberny&Peignot, in Paris.

The catalogue is housed in a hand-made slipcase and box, custom made to an exact size, whose exteriors are covered with Ingres paper. The book title is letterpress-printed on the slipcase’s spine.

Limited and numbered print run of 175 copies, of which 80 on pure-cotton Magnani paper, made in Pescia.

This is an ordinary copy.

The special copies are as follows: 45 on ancient light-blue Fabriano paper (price on request); 50 on paper imported from China (price on request).
