THE BEAUTY OF BYRNE
In 1847, Oliver Byrne published his own unique version of Euclid's Elements, itself written c. 300BC. Byrne sought to introduce the technical aspects of Euclid's work in pictoral form like never before, creating a design that pre-dated the Bauhaus art movement that began almost 75 years later. This edition seeks not so much to delve into the work of Euclid, but to highlight the beauty that was Byrne's creation, ahead of its time.
To be printed in the first-half of 2023 on an Albion Press.
Printed on Barcham Green Hayle hand-made paper.
The edition will feature an essay on the history and impact of the edition, an understanding of its relevance, as well as how it fits within the broader history of colour printing and the art movements influenced by it.
The SPECIAL EDITION will be bound in a specially constructed expandable binding mimicking the title page geometric shape printed in the original edition.
Planned to include numerous multi-colour illustrations.
