The Vico collaboration concludes with a new portfolio of
wooden letter prints, letterpress printing, and photographs. In this portfolio,
the wooden letters, metal type, and photographs are integrated; printed together
on the same sheet,
using traditional letterpress printing inks for the typography and Piezography
inks for the photographs.
The Vico duodecimo Axiom 65 portfolio has been published in 2006
by The Greenwood Press in an edition of fory-five. Each portfolio consists
of nine prints in three colors, a title page, and a colophon, all printed on
Somerset Photo Enhanced Velvet, 225 gsm.
The page size of 13 x 17.5 inches
is determined by the sheet size of a duodecimo before it has been folded,
the duodecimo being the size of the first (1725) and second (1730) editions
of Giambattista Vico's (1668-1744) masterpiece, The New Science.
