Book Description

Limited edition. A set of 9 etchings and poems by Shirley Jones, the link theme being a version of the mandala symbol appearing in each image. The text was set in the Boldoni typeface and printed on a hand-press by J & N Morley of Kenley on mould-made paper by J Green of Kent. This edition limited to twenty-five copies of which this is number five. Each etching is signed and dated in pencil by the artist. All contained in a hessian-covered solander box blind-stamped with the title and with a circle in gilt stamped to the upper cover. Jones’ scarce third book. Internally fine. The solander box is rubbed to the outer edges with a few small splits to the inside edges, a stain to the bottom right-hand corner and the occasional mark, a scratch to the gilt circle on the upper cover.

Shirley Jones (born 1934) is a Welsh writer, poet and printmaker. She set up her own studio and began to produce her own books in 1977, and from 1983 she took the name Red Hen Press. In 1994 she established her studio in Llanhamlach, near Brecon. Her books, often produced in small numbers, combine prints with her own poetry or other text drawn from translations from the Welsh or Old English.
