Comments

David Belch, proprietor of the Scarab Press and well-known biblio-bon vivant of the San Francisco Bay Area (circa 1960s-2010), commissioned several fine binders to design and produce bindings on Printing Poetry by Clifford Burke, that he had published to wide acclaim in 1980. Three of the binders were Sün Evrard of La Celle Les Bordes, France; Louise Genest of Outremont, Quebec; and Eleanore E. Ramsey of San Francisco. Enclosed is Genest's statement about the design of the binding, signed and dated October 26, 2003, with the receipt for her fee: $3,500.00.
