The second edition of In the Company of Black by Cecil McDonald Jr. will debut at the end of this month. We want to announce that this is the last week that we will be offering our discounted pre-order price for this book. After February 14, the book will be $75.
Here are some photographs that help capture the process of how we produce editions like this one:
Paper is very important to us, and these stocks are appropriately warm and gorgeous, well-fitting for Cecil McDonald, Jr.'s photographs, avery r. young's poems, and Tempestt Hazel's essay Adorning the Lost & Found.
After the covers are inked, all casework and foil stamping is done in-house at Candor Arts.
