THE TEXT IS A LAMENT, THE BOOK IS A BEAUTY
“One of the most beautiful Hebrew books of the 20th century”* describes this work by Jonathan Kremer, a book that can be found in some of the finest rare book collections in the U.S. The hand-printed limited edition of “Eichah”, the biblical “Lamentations,” was made from Kremer’s hand-lettered and illustrated original. The complete Jewish Publication Society English translation is included in this volume.
Printed (by Jonathan Kremer) on Rives paper and hand-bound in linen by Gray Parrot — with debossed paper label inset on the cover — the edition is limited to 60 copies, of which only about 15 remain available. (7 x 10 inches)
