SUTTON HOO PRESS celebrated
its first decade of literary fine press publishing by collecting one copy of
each book and broadside still in print at the end of 2001. The large clamshell
boxes (17"x25"x5") were designed by C. Mikal Oness and built by
Judi Conant of Guildhall, VT. Each box contains six interchangeable trays of
books and a portfolio of broadsides. In addition to Sutton Hoo Press
publications, the box contains collateral issues related to the press,
including a few choice books by students of the press and signed copies of
books written by C. Mikal Oness and Elizabeth Oness. Only ten boxes exist, and
the last ten copies of some issues are only available in the Decade Boxes.
Please contact Sutton Hoo for additional details and information.
