Summary

Calligraphy by Gemma Black. Printed one sheet at a time by Lloyd McPherson, using a Vicobold press. Canberra bookbinder Helen Wadlington had initially intended that Oddilly be printed at the Croft Press, and printer Jim Walker 'had blocks of the illustrations and the calligraphy made but he stored them wrapped in newspaper, which damaged the blocks so badly that the printed result satisfied neither printer nor binder' (Andrew Schuller, 'A History of the Croft Press', The La Trobe Journal, No. 95, March 2015, p. 29).-Catalogue description by Books of Kells, August 2016.

Full contents Limited edition of 50 signed and numbered copies. 
Notes

"This edition of 50 copies was printed on Hahnemuhle acid free paper and the lino cuts were hand coloured by the illustrator."--Colophon.

Binding

Hand-bound by Helen Wadlington in blue paste-paper, with a goat image printed in black ink to upper board, using the Japanese 'butterfly' binding technique.
