At the end of the year we feature a very special book by the artist Gerald Scarfe. It’s a retrospective of his last 60 years of work and we were delighted to welcome him and the team from Little Brown to the plant as the sheets rolled off the press. There were several editions including a Standard Edition in a slipcase, a Deluxe Edition and a very special Artists Edition. The latter two were housed in a velvet lined presentation box featuring a special lifting mechanism to raise the very heavy book. Both of the special editions contained signed limited edition prints with the Artists Edition also containing a piece of original artwork by the author.

A huge amount of work has been put into the book from all parties involved – it was lovely to see it all come to fruition and to see the final books at the launch party in the Scarfe Bar.
