On Fifty-six Ontological Studies
Fifty-six Ontological Studies arrived today. What a happy surprise! It looks a lovely volume indeed . . . a mix of poetry, philosophy, photography, mathematics and fine workmanship – what a wonderful combination!

I love folio-sized private press books as much as the next guy but sometimes they inhibit spontaneous handling; volumes like this one and the Cavafy are proof of your commitment to making beautiful but eminently readable editions. Congratulations also to Apollonia on her work on this.

On Ursus typographicus: a Chronology of Bears
Having happily devoured Ursus Typographicus, and delighted in the many 4-legged creatures within it, I wanted to let you know what a treasured thing it will become. You know you both do extraordinary work, and at least some of the world appreciates it.
Scott McIntyre, publisher, and Patron of the press
Just to let you know that the book has safely arrived and I couldn’t be more delighted with it. It is a wonderful celebration of your achievement. A real bonus - which I hadn’t expected - was that there would be so much text to read and which having quickly dipped in from place to place is very interesting. The bears have arrived here in the middle of a heat wave; so hibernation is well and truly over.

The bears have arrived safely and we are delighted with them. Sabine read the book right away and I just finished it. So beautiful!

EE5 is a masterpiece and instantly one of the favorite books I own.

What can I say other than wow? The long wait is over and it was well worth it! What a magnificent book. Whoever printed it (I enjoyed reading about your travails) is absolutely fantastic. I can't believe how wonderful the plates are, especially the colour ones. Richard must be ecstatic. Thank you, thank you.

Very beautiful binding, sublime inside as always! It was worth the waiting.

I have never seen a compilation of engravings done so masterfully. [It] is the best treatment of an engraver’s works that I have ever seen! Andrew Hedden, Subscriber to the press
I was expecting something pretty special, but my expectations were blown out of the water by the thing itself. ... The printing of the blocks is astounding. My colleagues here have been crowding around the book, as one of them reverently turns the pages, emitting gasps of delight as one image after another is revealed.
