Description

8vo, [12 pp]. A letter, printed in facsimile, from Canadian typographer Carl Dair to a young Robert Reid and Will Carter, proprietor of the Rampant Lions Press. Edition of 75 numbered copies, this being copy No. 60. Introduction & afterword by Reid. Hand-set in 14-point Garamont, printed on damp Lana Antique. Sewn in a wrap of blue cotton paper made specially for this project by Reg Lissel. A fine copy.

Comments

Four-page letter in Dair's hand reproduced from polymer plates, printed damp on handmade Amatruda paper - one of the mills Dair mentions in the letter. Reid corresponded with Dair during the 1950s and early '60s; most of these letters were donated to McGill University, but this letter was recently discovered in Reid's files.
