Gallery Highlight: The Works of Richard Barnfield
From Jan Hebbard
In 1998, The Old Stile Press, a private press in Wales, published The Affectionate Shepheard with illustrations by Welsh artist Clive Hicks-Jenkins. The edition of 200 copies was letterpress printed on paper made by Frances McDowall. In 2001, Old Stile Press published an edition of Barnfield’s Sonnets, also accompanied by illustrations by Clive Hicks-Jenkins. This edition was also limited to 200 copies.
Both of these modern printings are on display in the Hargrett Library's Signature Gallery beginning February 17, 2021.
