SONG OF SOLOMON
Half Leather Letterpress Edition
Limited To Just 75 Copies - This Being No.58
Thornwillow Press has published the first ever fine press edition of Toni Morrison’s legendary novel Song of Solomon. Letterpress printed and hand-bound, this Thornwillow edition celebrates the iconic novelist’s enduring legacy.
There is perhaps no more towering figure of recent American literature than the legendary author Toni Morrison.
A once-in-a-generation talent, she amassed accolades too numerous to list, among them: the Pulitzer Prize, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the Nobel Prize in Literature—the first ever awarded to an African American woman. In the press release announcing the award, the Swedish Academy called her an artist who “in novels characterized by visionary force and poetic import, gives life to an essential aspect of American reality."
“Toni Morrison is a literary artist of the first rank. She delves into the language itself, a language she wants to liberate from the fetters of race. And she addresses us with the lustre of poetry.” - The Nobel Prize Committee.
The Half-Leather edition is bound in yellow Moroccan goatskin and handmade paste paper boards, with letterpress printed endpapers. In this edition, the frontispiece portrait of Toni Morrison is a handprinted photogravure. The top edge of the book is gilt and each copy has hand-sewn headbands. It is presented in a suede lined clamshell box with a gold tooled leather spine label. Each copy is signed and numbered by the publisher.
