An extraordinary Bereshit entirely hand-made by Ariel Vardi; who designed the font, made the type, printed the pages, designed and made the prints, and bound the books. A monoprint (The artist pulls one or a few different prints from a plate.) adorns the cover of this approximately 7″ x 5″ book so that each book of the edition is unique. Inside there is a signed intaglio print. But what makes this book so wonderful is that the opening pages parallel the Genesis story; on the first page of text there are randomly placed Hebrew letters, which are rearranged in subsequent pages to more ordered patterns until the letters are assembled into the Hebrew text of Genesis, chapters 1-2. The book is numbered (10) and signed by Vardi on the colophon page. This is a fantastic item for any book collector.
