London: Morel Books, n.d. (2019)
19.5 x 13cm, 272pp plus wrappers and publisher’s bandeau. Artist’s book – designed to mimic Ryan Gander’s annotated copy of the Vintage Classic edition of Italo Calvino’s ‘If on a winter’s night a traveller’ (1979). Gander’s version is typeset in “Set in Stone”; a typeface invented by the artist and produced by Adrien Vasquez of John Morgan Studio. The typeface is based on a collection of stones found by the artist’s children on a beach near their family home. The artist has reapplied his original annotations using an oversized brush and black calligraphy ink. This is one of the 60 deluxe copies – each copy includes a hand drawn annotation by the artist. Each of the deluxe copies is signed and numbered by Gander. VG+.
