This fine press limited edition of The Lottery by Shirley Jackson is presented in two states and is limited to two hundred and seventy-six copies. The edition measures 6” x 9” and features an exclusive introduction by Laurence Jackson Hyman, son of Shirley Jackson and four new full-color illustrations by award winning artist Miles Hyman, grandson of Shirley Jackson. This is the first stand-alone limited edition of The Lottery, and both editions are signed by Laurence Jackson Hyman and Miles Hyman.
The Lettered edition is limited to 26 copies and is a Bradel binding with the front board covered in genuine shagreen stingray, and the spine and back board covered in black calfskin. Endsheets are hand marbled on acid free Fabriano Ingres. The edition is printed letterpress on handmade Velké Losiny paper, our first edition to be printed on handmade paper; and is housed in a quarter leather clamshell enclosure with an Italian cloth cover.
The stingray leather has a hard smooth "glass" feeling when touched. It conveys the reference to smooth stones really well.
