The Reading Room Press is pleased to announce its fourth publication
T E Lawrence and Siegfried Sassoon: a Friendship by Dennis SIlk
The text is a transcript of a talk given by Dennis Silk in 2007 at the Imperial War Museum.
Lawrence was one of only five guests at Sassoon's wedding: they had developed a high regard for each other's literary endeavours. No photograph can be found of them together, so the Reading Room Press has asked Jim Westergard to engrave, on boxwood, an illustration: possibly the first time that such an image has been published.
Set in Perpetua and printed on an Albion handpress on Zerkall mould-made paper, the edition will be 120 copies. Bound by Chris Hicks. Price £30 plus P+P.
