"One of the most elaborate printing ventures ever to be undertaken by an American press." The type chosen for this edition was hand-set Goudy Modern in eighteen-point size with initials printed in blue beginning each chapter in Leviathan Capitals. Printed on hand-made paper that bears the outline of a whale as its watermark, the printing of this book took over a year to complete, and is widely considered to be the Press’ finest production.
Robin and Marsha were avid supporters of the Arion Press and Grabhorn Institute, the latter of which was founded in 2000 in order to preserve and perpetuate the use of one of the last integrated typefoundry, letterpress printing, and bookbinding facilities as a living museum and educational center.
