THE JANET BOX & THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ALDE
To commemorate the centenary year of Reynolds Stone's birth, Warren Editions has produced a box featuring his typeface, Janet.
The first use of Janet was in The Other Side of the Alde, a short autobiographical piece written specially for the purpose by Lord Clark. It was originally printed by Reynolds Stone in 1968, and was the first publication of Warren Editions.
The solander box contains separate sheets including title and contents pages, proofs of each of the four engravings printed by his daughter Phillida on one of his Hopkinson & Cope presses, and a proof of the large alphabet engraving from which the type is derived. It also includes articles by Michael Harvey (about the digitisation of the type), Alan Powers (about the setting of Lord Clark's piece), and an article about Reynolds Stone's presses by Phillida Gili, as well as a poster printed by the Whittington Press featuring Janet type, and photographs by Janet Stone of Reynolds Stone with his presses. It also includes a facsimile of the original edition of The Other Side of the Alde.
The Other Side of the Alde retails separately at £20.
Janet Box retails at £400. Sales (including discounts for booksellers) on application to Phillida Gili
