Notes on this edition: Evermore. London: Palawan Press, 1996.
Julian Barnes’s story “Everymore” was privately printed by Palawan Press in two limited editions. The most limited “Blue Edition” was limited to 50 copies. The “Standard Edition” was limited to 150 copies. Both editions feature text by Julian Barnes with prints by Howard Hodgkin.
The example presented here is the author’s personal copy “AP 3” [Artist Proof no. 3] from an artist’s proof set of 10.
The “blue edition” is described on the Palawan Press website as:
“Limited to 50 copies and signed by the writer and the artist. This edition comprises the etchings of the standard edition but in addition each page of the book is hand painted, and two individual prints, signed by the artist, are included. The bound book and the loose prints are enclosed in a sleeve and portfolio box in silver bookcloth.”
