Owen, Wilfred - Wilfred Owen: Selected Poems Limited Edition - ( Item 134013 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2018. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. A new limited edition published to commemorate the poet’s death in November 1918 and designed to emulate the fine press editions of the early 20th century. In series with Selected Poems Rupert Brooke and Selected Poems Edward Thomas. Limited to 1,250 hand-numbered copies of which this is number 68. Quarter-bound in goatskin with paste-paper sides. Set in Plantin. 84 pages. 9 engravings and 8 letterpress vignettes. Paper-covered slipcase blocked in gold on one side and inset with a printed label. Coloured top edge. Signed by the artist, Neil Bousfield. 9¾? x 7?. Wilfred Owen is the ultimate soldier-poet, a writer whose verses have irrevocably shaped our understanding of the horrors of the First World War. One hundred years after his death in combat at the age of just twenty-five, his war poems have achieved canonical status. For this new limited edition, Owen Sheers has written a specially commissioned introduction and Neil Bousfield has created engravings and vignettes to accompany the poetry. The design honours the craft techniques employed at the beginning of the 20th century, with letterpress printing on mould-made paper, a goatskin leather quarter-binding and hand-made paste-paper sides by Victoria Hall.
