The Casa Fontanalba Visitor's Book
Release date: Saturday 14th October 2017 at the Museo Bicknell in Bordighera. Advance copies available by mail and from 7th October at the exhibition (see details below) the week before.
Art reproduction copies of Clarence Bicknell's illustrated vellum-bound album from 1906, the Casa Fontanalba Visitors' Book, were on the press at Indigo Press in Southampton on Thursday. The press used is a £1million Komori Lithrone S29P HUV perfecting off-set litho 4-colour machine, which prints both sides in one pass by using UV heaters to dry the ink in milliseconds before the paper reaches the next colour roller. The books will be on sale in retail, at Clarence Bicknell events and on www.clarencebicknell.com; pricing and how to order will be in our next bulletin.Here's my YouTube video of our visit to Indigo Press to check the printed version against the original. Fantastic!
