Re: [BKARTS] Anybody published commercially?



I know that there have been some beautiful books published by Chronicle in
trade editions. Aunt Sallie's Lament which was designed (I believe) by
Claire Van Vliet, was originally a letterpress project.

The only thing that gives me pause about the company is that a number of
their books are "manufactured in China."
