BIG small by Thomas Parker Williams

BIG small is a book about our small place in a big universe. Each page unfolds to show original illustrations that were produced by etching the design on to a zinc plate and then augmenting the plate with engraving. The white ink etchings were printed on to a 2-color (blue then black) flood coat. Text was letterpress printed from hand set metal type.
