    @Daninsky Hahahaha! She might think a walleyed stare an improvement!

      For those of you who might be interested, Heavenly Monkey updated their Book descriptions, so there is additional information into how the Lovecraft book is made. Quoting from their site:

      "Ichthyic (25 copies, I-XXV, with the imprint Heavenly Monkey) printed on Nideggen, a laid sheet suitably tinted for the story's abyssal theme. These were hand-bound at the Heavenly Monkey studio: sewn on black vellum slips and laced into a traditional limp case made from a handmade abaca-based paper with the texture and look of vellum. The case is lined with a sheet of handmade cotton paper that has had a large linocut printed on the front, the title on the spine, and our press device on the back. These can be seen through the semi-transparent paper case, to greater or lesser degrees, depending on how it is held. This issue also includes proofs of the engravings printed from the original blocks on handmade gampi paper, interleaved through the text, with the colophon signed by Shinsuke Minegishi. Seven of these copies (two hors commerce) had the proofs hand colored by the artist; these were sewn on purple vellum slips. With a black paper slipcase on which the title and lincout have been printed in black."
