The Dream Song of Olaf Åsteson. One of 10 hand coloured copies signed by the artist. From an edition of 140 copies.

A fragment of a Norwegian folk epic c.400 A.D translated by Pauline Wehrle. This hauntingly powerful text played an important role in lectures given by Dr Rudolf Steiner.

It uses rich symbolism to depict a spiritual leader’s journey of initiation and, as such, provided a perfect stimulus and challenge for the woodcuts of Maryclare Foa. Her immediate and intuitive technique seems to lay bare the very core of the subject for each of the thirty-six blocks which use, as do the verses of the poem, a childlike directness to treat of matters too spiritually deep for the words and images of everyday life.

The massive and eternal quality of text and image has been matched by the amazing binding devised and executed for the whole edition by Habib Dingle. Already renowned for his unique wooden bindings, he has here tackled the problems of quantity. The wood comes from Victorian pitch-pine beams, reclaimed, shaped and polished and incorporated with rawhide, with blind tooling, to form the book’s case. (
Printed on 200gsm velin arches paper.
Number 3 of 10 with hand coloured woodcuts, signed by the artist.
