Abstract

The paucity of studies on the history of leaf printing led Rod Cave and Geoffrey Wakeman to produce this limited edition publication of 333 copies under the Brewhouse Press imprint, run by Trevor Hickman and Rigby Graham. It contains tipped-in illustrations of this art (such as Leonardo da Vinci’s description of leaf printing) and a wonderful but very fragile real leaf cover.
