The Tern Press
We have just bought a small collection of hand-made books published by the Tern Press, which was started in 1973 by Nicholas and Mary Perry. To find these scarce and handsome books go into 'search books' and put in the word 'tern'. In starting the project, Nicholas Parry said: "Our initial aims were to relate each subject to a relative set of materials. to think of the book as an overall work of art, rather like an opera, with a body (stage - props - paper - binding), intellect (thoughts - words - libretto), and feelings (music - color - prints), to try, as in all art, to produce a form that lives and breathes. Thus our books are not conceived, designed, produced through process, but are perceived, arranged and produced through craft."
