Tower of Poestenkill: Kaldewey, Gunnar, 1990. Tall folio. (32)pp. From an edition of 55 copies, this is one of twenty deluxe editions. Illustrated with ten paper pulp images of Jewish symbols such as the Star of David, the Torah pointer, and the shofar. The text of The Song of Songs is printed in the original Hebrew using Frank-Ruehl Hebrew type. Typical of Kaldewey's work, the text is arranged freely on the page to complement the images. The chapter numbers are printed in dark purple, which complements the in yellow, violet, green, and turquoise used in the illustrations. The English translation is printed in red on architect's vellum - a slick contrast to the textured handmade paper on which the Hebrew is printed. This deluxe edition is bound by Christian Zwang of Hamburg in red painted leather, with a title label made of etched sterling silver. Housed in a gray cloth box, gilt-titled to spine. Very fine. (Edition Kaldewey 16).
