Mr Bridge and Mrs Bridge, by Evan S. Connell
Creatively designed to fit together in a sculptural form by Thomas Hardwick, designer of the London Routemaster Bus and the Olympic Cauldron, these books are a limited edition with a press run of just 1000 books. The two companion novels portray both sides to an upper middle-class American marriage between the First and Second World Wars, forced to deal with the moral and cultural changes of the times.
Two hardback novels in an attractive blue-grey cloth with silver writing on spine, contained in the original cloth-bound box. Rectangular holes cut into each book and the box in an innovative design by Thomas Heatherwick. Pp. 294; 290.
