facsimile 1931 The Four Gospels. Eric Gill decorations. 1988, September Press.


A wonderfully executed facsimile of an epoch of Eric Gill work, The Four Gospels. An unbound original was sourced, photographs taken, and the work was reproduced, to the same scale, using offset lithography. Printed on St. Cuthbert's Mould-made half rag paper, similar to the high quality paper the Golden Cockerel used on the original. At the rear, after the Gospel's original Cockerel colophon, the printer included Robert Gibbings' Memories of Eric Gill, just before their own colophon.
