THE GREGYNOG JOURNALS by Jonah Jones
This is an immaculately made book culled by his son David from the journal Jonah Jones kept during his year as artist-in-residence at the Gregynog Press 1981-82. It contains not only the words that Jonah wrote, but also watercolours, drawings, lettering, and reproductions of his own beautiful written script. If you are interested in flowers, lakes, hills, stone, calligraphy, Wales, the early 1980s, Eng.Lit, BBC producers, exhibiting, weather, the Falklands, plaques, sculpture, art, friendship or life, this is the book for you. You can find more details here. I must confess an interest: I was greatly honored to be asked to write the introduction, which you will find reproduced among my 'pages'.
