Rip Kirby

Rip Kirby, private dick. This blank book is a mish mosh of vintage comics… the front cover features a noir P.I. detective comic called Rip Kirby; the back cover is a Western title, the Rawhide Kid. Interior pages illustrate the vintage robot adventures of the Zeroids, from Planet Zero… the amazing automatons from outer space.

This book is bound using a six needle variation on the classic Greek across-the-spine coptic method. Sewn with premium waxed Irish linen thread. The bookblock has ten quarto signatures, for a total of 80 blank pages of white 32lb 25% cotton rag with 30% post-consumer recycled content. Cover papers, end- and fly-papers all come from vintage comic books. The paste-downs are 30% post-consumer recycled content artist paper. The journal measures 5.75″x7.75″. Acid-free & archival.
