Two Books from Incline Press

Recently issued from Incline Press:
Images of History
by Terry Wyke is a history of Manchester Metropolitan University as told through a series of lovely illustrations.

To be published (maybe already released):
A Christmas Carol illustrated by Chris Burke. From the prospectus:
Among his colour work Chris Burke has created over fifty murals for Ottaker's bookshops, from Banbury to Woking, and many a cover for The Sunday Times Books section, as well as many advertising commissions and book jackets. His black and white works include the series of portraits, Birthdays of the Rich and Famous, and a particularly striking poster for the Welsh National Opera production of Carmen. A portfolio of his work can be seen at www.chrisburke.org.uk.

Surpisingly this is his first illustrated book, and we are pleased to have four full colour plates and four more in black and white. The book is printed from metal type and hand bound with a cloth spine and decorated paper sides over boards.

Eight copies containing one each of the original illustrations have already been spoken for. The rest of the edition of two hundred copies, each numbered, contains an original sketch made while planning the illustrations, signed by Chris Burke.

Copies will be posted in the first week of December, and the price of $130 includes postage. There are no loose items in this book, but should you require a slip-case to match the book, they can be ordered for delivery with the book, price $30 each.
