The Bright Field

Das helle Feld

A bilingual volume of 30 poems (from the last five decades) by R. S. Thomas. This first selection of his work in book form in German includes a previously uncollected poem.

The text was set in Monotype Bodoni and printed by letterpress at the Stamperia Valdonega on off-white deckle-edged Magnani acid-free rag paper; the front matter and the initials were set by hand, the title page printed in wine-red and black; 24.5 x 16.6 cm, 88 pp., sewn.

110 numbered copies were bound by hand, and numbered and signed by the poet, ten (I-X) in reddish-brown genuine oasis Nigerian goatskin, gold blocked, in slipcase, 100 (1-100) in half black buckram over wine-red boards; backstrip gilt lettered, front cover blocked in black.

The 890 unnumbered copies are softbound, with a light grey Fabriano wrap-around jacket printed in wine-red and black.
