1 of 40 special copies with additional engravings.
In 2002 Brian Hanscomb’s studio was tragically destroyed by fire, everything went including many of the copper engravings, and the nineteenth-century paper we had sent him for our next book. The Phoenix is a celebration of the rebuilt studio, and includes those images which could be repaired, as well as new ones, accompanied by Brian’s haiku. Brian’s minutely observed copper-engravings brilliantly capture the intimacy of the Cornish landscape that surrounds him.
This is one of the 40 copies with 2 additional signed engravings and haiku.
