When it came to publishing his work, James had a very clear vision: “I wanted a book with enduring character. A book that would be regarded as something special.” He traced a once-visited bookshop in Oxford specialising in leather-bound books, and was referred to Green Street Bindery which recommended Holywell Press to help him design and print his book.
“Working with Holywell was an entirely constructive process. I was able to take inspiration from other books they had produced to narrow down options for the high-quality finish I wanted.”
– James Darley
James settled on a hardback cover with silk art paper for the contents. A slip case made of cloth-covered board was also specified for a collector’s edition.
