Oh my, they were beautiful. But taking painstaking care with all aspects of production does not come cheaping, "incuding the paper, the form of type, the spacing of the letters, and the position of the printed matter on the page". Did the books cost much more than ordinary books of the time? I ask only because so many of the exquisite Arts and Crafts works priced themselves out of the market :(
I've never seen the contemporary price - they certainly cost a fortune now. But what works of Art.
