Italian Translation and final note by Giuseppe Bellini.

Volume in 4to format of 88 pages typeset by hand in Caslon italic and roman types, derived from the original punches cut by William Caslon in the 18th century.

***
The number of movable
types handled for the typesetting of this book, makes it an exceptional endeavor in contemporary fine printing.

Printed on very fine paper and sewn by hand, this collector’s edition is handmade in the most ancient typographic studio in the world still in activity, where handmade bookmaking and modern aesthetic combine to give the best possible reading experience.

Tallone book is a sophisticated, valuable gift meant to last over time.

Neither monotype nor linotype are used. These typesetting systems from a keyboard are often passed off as manual typography. The Tallone Press also does not print from plastic plates derived from digital compositions.

The volume 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.
