The Genius of Culture

Genius of Culture, title page

The Genius of Culture was made possible through the generosity and support of Catherine B. and Claudius Y. Gates. It was printed on an 1846 Columbian handpress at the University of Utah Marriott Library. The lithographs are by the artist Wayne Kimball and were handprinted by him. The book was designed, set by hand and printed by Day Christensen. The type is 16 point Van Djick and the handmade paper is Twinrocker Linen Rag, printed damp. The books were handbound and boxed by Booklab in Austin, Texas. Printing was completed in January 1991. The edition is limited to 70 copies for sale, 15 copies hors de commerce.
