Does anyone have any experience with the Oak Knoll printing of the Diving Comedy? If so can you speak to the book and it's qualities? Thanks!
EDIT: Update with a link to said book. https://www.oakknoll.com/pages/books/95872/dante/divine-comedy-the
>1 Sorion: I have 8 copies of the Divine Comedy, this is my favorite edition. I love the Hollander translation and this edition is beautifully made and illustrated.
>2 kdweber: Thanks for replying! Can you tell me about the cover(not the dust jacket, or what looks to be a dust jacket) and the quality of the paper? Thanks again.
From the picture of the title page can be seen that it states that the book is printed litho.
>2 kdweber: Yet I bet not a single one of your copies is signed by author :-)
What makes this one a real gem http://www.ebay.com/itm/201913044235?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName...
>3 Sorion: The covers are cloth (red, green and blue) with a small illustrated insert on the front board and gold titling on the spine. My favorite paper would be in the LEC edition followed by the Grabhorn Press but the Gardapat Klassica paper by Cartiere del Garda in this edition is very nice if not great - smooth, opaque and of a medium weight with heavier weight plain gray endpapers.
>9 kdweber: Thanks so much that was exactly the information I was after. That's a huge help!
5: I did not see where it stated the printing process? I assume it's modern offset lithography. Isn't this how most books are printed today?
