Market Drayton, The Tern Press, 1993, Limited Edition. Hardcover, 6" by 6.5", pp. Illustrated paper covered boards, internally clean and bright, wood engraved illustrations, No.46 from an edition of 140 copies signed by Nicholas and Mary Parry.
The Tern Press was started in 1973 by Nicholas and Mary Parry. They purchased their first press from a local jobbing printer with prize money from a Welsh Arts Council open painting competition. In Matrix 5, Parry stated: "Our initial aims were to relate each subject to a relative set of materials. to think of the book as an overall work of art, rather like an opera, with a body (stage - props - paper - binding), intellect (thoughts - words - libretto), and feelings (music - color - prints), to try, as in all art, to produce a form that lives and breathes. Thus our books are not conceived, designed, produced through process, but are perceived, arranged and produced through craft."
