This chapbook presents, for the first time, Smith′s story from the unaltered original manuscript (1935). Included is a reproduction of the long thought lost illustration of Virgil Finlay (from the story′s first published version in the famed magazine Weird Tales)—here, for the first time in its original coloration. Typographic design and printing by Gerald Lange of The Bieler Press. The titling face shown here is a digitally revived version (in situ from letterpress printed pages) of the typeface the renowned calligrapher Edward Johnston designed for the acclaimed Cranach Press Hamlet ; which was based on the fifteenth-century transitional gothic types of Sweynheym and Pannartz. The chapbook′s text face is Monotype Bell. Both typefaces were size-optimized for printing. The Curtis Flannel covers were letterpress printed, the text was digitally printed on Mohawk 50/10 archival quality paper. The chapbook was sewn by the publisher, Terence McVicker, in an edition limited to 250 numbered copies. The tipped-in illustration was ink jet printed by McVicker.
