Nason’s is a name we’ve come across over the years, but we never paid much attention until this book fell in our lap. The first thing we thought was, “This is a beautiful book.” Our crummy photos don’t do it justice. It’s really a model of typography, printing, and bookmaking. That was first. Our second thought? “We live in a beautiful place, New England.” Thomas W. Nason was known as “the poet engraver of New England” and he captured the best parts of this region. The Work of Thomas W. Nason is an authoritative account of his life and work. We’re swooning.
