Notes: A facsimile, produced to the highest standards, of Maret's 2009 work, originally published in an edition of 55 copies and long since sold out. It is at heart an alphabet book, each letter imaginatively printed to produce an amazing array of designs of exquisite quality. This facsimile also reproduces the diary of ink colours that had accompanied only the special copies of the original.
