Thomas Pynchon's 'The "C" Section' now available for pre-order


I am now taking pre-orders for the Opitcs Press Vol. 2

If you haven't already, check out my last blog post to see what it's all about.

Here's a breakdown of everything that went into the binding...

  • Printed in full color on gloriously thick 100# acid-free paper

  • The individual covers separating the stories printed on Extra Heavy Card-Stock

  • Text Block completely hand sewn using Irish linen thread

  • Hand sewn head and tail bands using pure silk wrapped around a leather core

  • Cotton based rag paper endsheets

  • Covers attached directly to the text block with the linen tapes woven through the boards themselves (not glued and cased in like most modern books)

  • Quarter binding with French Goat Skin Leather for the spine and Japanese Asahi Bookcloth for the front and back boards

  • Label on spine printed on Elephant Hide Paper

  • Deluxe Buckram wrapped slipcase lined with velvet. Includes pull ribbon

  • Limited to 15 numbered copies signed by the binder

The book is currently half way to being sold out. I'll be binding the second half of books over the next couple weeks. All pre-orders qualify for free shipping. I don't expect this book to even make it to my store front as the pre-orders have been very high for this volume. If you're interested please contact me andrew@opticsbinding.com
