Description from Suntup Website


The signed limited edition of The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood is presented in three states: Artist, Numbered and Lettered. The editions measure 6” x 9” and include an introduction by Sophie Mackintosh, an afterword by Jan Garden Castro and six full color illustrations by Ken Cunningham. The Numbered and Lettered editions are signed by Margaret Atwood, Sophie Mackintosh, Jan Garden Castro and Ken Cunningham. The Artist edition is signed by Ken Cunningham.


The Numbered edition of 250 copies is bound in black Harmatan and Oakridge goatskin, and red Japanese cloth. The cover and spine are foil blocked in three colors, and endsheets are printed letterpress on Hahnemühle Bugra.

The edition is housed in a quarter Japanese cloth cigar-box enclosure with handmade paste paper sides by Marie Kelzer. Each sheet of the paste papers are  hand painted one at a time, and no two are entirely alike. Marie Kelzer’s paste papers are part of the Paper Legacy Project and are housed at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, at the Thomas J. Watson Library.

The edition is printed letterpress on a Heidelberg Cylinder Press by Bradley Hutchinson in Austin, Texas. The paper is Mohawk Superfine Softwhite Eggshell, and the edition is signed by Margaret Atwood, Sophie Mackintosh, Jan Garden Castro and Ken Cunningham.
