Lovely ~ Sylvia Plath Lyonnesse

Lyonnesse is a beautiful limited edition printed by Rainbow Press in 1971. It is surprisingly large, A4ish in size and very arresting in the flesh so to speak. The paper is beautiful and textured, it is heavy, thick paper, it is a very tactile book, it needs to be experienced physically, one of those books that holding it enhances. Just lovely.

  1. Beautiful book, I have seen this copy in rare book libraries & book fairs and it is a stunning thing to hold and flip through. I often read, when I am bored or it is raining, Tabor's Analytical Bibliography for the descriptions.
