Romilly's Tools – an incomplete set

Photographs by Verdi Yahooda
Limited edition of 500. All copies numbered.

We are pleased to announce that we now have copies available of this remarkable collection of 65 black-and-white photographs of the bookbinding tools belonging to Romilly Saumarez Smith, together with an essay by Charles Saumarez Smith.

The photographs were taken in Romilly’s bindery in 1986, and the book brings together three sequences of images of the tools as positive and negative photographs. Some of these images were shown printed on a large scale and mounted on calico as an installation to complement a Designer Bookbinder's exhibition at Leighton House in 1986. Another set was shown at the Yale Centre for British Art in 2010.
