"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man, in possession of a good printing press, must be in want of a project.
Indeed, we want this monumental project: to produce 138 copies of Pride and Prejudice, in 3 volumes.
The text will be hand-set in metal type, printed letterpress on archival paper, illustrated with at least a dozen original wood-engravings in each volume, hand-bound in fine materials, and be a treasure to read.
No private press has undertaken such a small edition of this novel. Hardly a private press today will undertake a work of such length, and choose to hand-set it. So why do we? We love Jane. Moreso, we love Pride and Prejudice. And we know others do too. Favourite stories are treasures. We like to design them that way."
(TDS - all lovers of stories should support this campaign. In today's world of e-books, it makes no sense to purchase mass market, crappy paper versions of a book. However, a high-quality letterpress edition is a work of art, and should be valued as such. Please contribute!)
