Synopsis

A Forest Insect Alphabet features fifty-one original woodcuts drawn and cut by Charles Jones. Twenty-six images are color woodcuts, forest insects chosen to represent each letter of the alphabet and accompanied by twenty-three black and white wood engravings. A descriptive poetic quatrain printed from handset type is below each color print. The wood engravings offer a detailed study of the insects and are accompanied by scientific text. Printed by hand on a Vandercook III letterpress, the book features insects important for their beauty, impact on the forest environment and intricate ecology. The colors used for each woodcut are based on the named insect. The book is housed in a clam-shell box in Canapetta bookcloth with a gold stamped leather inset on the spine.
