The Story of the Fisherman: an up close look
Posted 7 years ago and submitted by Brian Bowes | Share link:


Over the course of the past year, I have been working on a book that is one of the most beautiful projects that I have ever had the honor of being a part of. This book has already found a home in many University Libraries across the US as well as abroad, a copy is now in the Special Collections at the Stanford University Library, and I am very proud to say that a copy is going to the United States Library of Congress Special Collections Room.

The Story of the Fisherman is a letterpress book that is hand bound, hand colored, and illustrated by your’s truly. The limited edition of 117 (101 of which are for sale) is a project that is produced by Foolscap Press.

It is a project that I am very proud of, and you can find out more about it on my blog.
