Small Book Collaboration with Back Pages Books

I have been excited and honored to collaborate with Alex Green in creating a little book titled “A Letter to the Waltham Nurses’ Training School” written by Florence Nightingale. It’s an endearing, yet quirky little letter written as a kind of charge to action for the nurses, with an odd tone. Alex set and printed the text at the Bow & Arrow Press (Cambridge, MA) as a single sheet to be cut down and bound as a pamphlet. I will be binding the pamphlet in a case with a lovely blind embossment of Nightingale’s initials.

More details to come, but here are a few images of our binding model:
