[Octon, France]: Verdigris Press, 2016. One of 5 copies from a total edition of 12, all on BFK Rives tan paper. Page size: 9-7/8 x 6-1/4 inches; 16pp. Bound by Mark Lintott accordion style, boards and Rothchild's hand-made pastepaper, rose dots scattered on tan ground with occasional indigo dots; housed in custom-made paper over boards clamshell box, paper on box has more blue than that on panels of book; title, artist, author, publisher on spine, title repeated on front cover of box, Hand set and printed in Vendome type on an 1867 Albion press by Mark Lintott. Ms. Rothchild's elegant drypoint etchings were inspired (the colophon reveals) by her sketches of her model, Monica. While a study of the female nude figure is a departure from her usual books, Judith Rothchild succeeds admirably. The intimate views depicted here are a match for those of her more frequently-encountered still-life compositions. (Inventory #: 11256)
