HOLLOWAY Robert Macfarlane, Stanley Donwood, First Ltd Edition Signed
A collaboration was proposed, slowly took form: we would make a small, strange, beautiful book about the holloways. A book about those old ways, printed in the old ways: with lead type, set by hand, written by me and Dan, designed and illustrated by Stanley. Holloway has no ISBN, and as such is commercially almost invisible. Its print-run is limited to 277 copies, for the height of Pilsdon Pen - the Iron Age hill-fort in Dorset, the high ground on which our journey began - is 277 metres above sea-level. Published by Quive Smith Editions, 2012. Quive Smith was the imprint created to publish this first edition of Holloway, and the 2018 first limited edition of Ness by Robert Macfarlane and Stanley. Six full page illustrations by Stanley.
