Offering a very hard to find book by a leading Mid Century typographer. The Twenty Third Psalm by Kurt Volk. Numbered, copy no 171. Leather cover with gilt accents. Pages are fine paper with a parchment feel.

As stated in the book: "This copy of The Twenty Third Psalm was designed, illustrated, decorated, hand illuminated and embellished with pure gold by Kurt H Volk, Typographer in the city of New York. The type was set in 30 point Freehand. The proofs were retouched with pen and ink to give the feeling of caligraphy. MCMXLIV (Signature) No 171 of a very limited edition."

Hand done highlighting throughout the book combined with the original signature and low number, makes this a very desirable piece. A beautifully illustrated work that brings to life the 23rd Psalm in a moving way.

Measures 6 5/8 inches long x 5 inches wide.

Smells fresh. As with all our items, this book is from a non smoking estate.

Guaranteed vintage & authentic. Not a reproduction. Satisfaction guaranteed.
