July 15, 2013 Comments Off on Of Interest: LEC Posts by other Macy Devotees
I’m foreseeing a busy week in front of me, so I’m not sure if I can crank out any more elaborate posts until this weekend. In the meantime, several of the other Devotees at LibraryThing have been spotlighting LEC editions lately, and I thought I’d spotlight their work in replacement for a lack of activity here.
1) tag83, aka Tony Geer, has a great post on the LEC Treasure Island illustrated by longtime Macy alum Edward A. Wilson (who I’ll get around to soon!) at The Book Blog.
2) At The Whole Book Experience, J. Davis details out the lovely LEC edition of Jurgen, featuring the artistic chops of Virgil Burnett.
3) Lastly, Nick Long at his blog Ephemeral Pursuits goes after Edward Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire‘s LEC printing, featuring etchings by Gian Battista Piranesi.
Enjoy all of these excellent, thorough reports on some lovely books!
July 7, 2011 Comments Off on Of Interest: The Whole Book Experience on the LEC Sonnets of the Portuguese
While you wait for me to get my hands on this lovely book, fellow LEC collector Jveezer covers this exquisite printing of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s seminal work, with plenty of great pictures and information. Valenti Angelo was the artist backing this book, and you’ll see how his decorative style makes for a perfect match for Browning’s words (like the Sonnets of Shakespeare I put up today). As of late he’s been focusing on other fine presses, but rest assured I’ll highlight other LEC posts from him in the future!
