About This Item

Francestown: Typographeum, 1996. Limited private press edition. First edition. Hardcover. Fine copy. 8vo. Black cloth. Printed label on back-strip (spare label tipped in). Gold device stamped on front cover. 48 pp. 25 cm. Hand-set and printed letterpress by R. T. Risk. Limited to an edition of 150 copies. Issued without a dust-jacket. Edited and Introduced by Keith Richmond. Rosaleen Norton was an Australian artist who gained some notoriety in the 1950s and '60s because of her occult beliefs, bohemian life-style, and bizarre and often sensuous artwork. A little known sidelight to her career were the three horror stories she wrote when she was 16 for a popular magazine, "Smith's Weekly". These stories are here printed together for the first time. (Only a very few copies of this book remain available. )
