Publisher's Description
In 1806, Thomas Jefferson began construction on a personal retreat near Bedford, Virginia, some ninety miles from his home, Monticello. He transformed nearly five thousand acres of pristine farmland and woods into a modestly equipped estate he called Poplar Forest.

Jefferson visited Poplar Forest regularly during construction and after the house was complete. He found there, as he wrote to a friend, “the solitude of a hermit.” Rob McDonald’s photographs of Poplar Forest explore the notion of retreat, of private space, which we all—even a man so great as Jefferson—require and seek instinctively.

The fourteenth H&B title, Poplar Forest will be published in a limited edition of 300 hand-sewn copies. The photographs are printed on an Indigo press, and all text is letterpress printed by hand. The interior pages are eggshell-finish Mohawk Superfine 80lb text. Each copy of this intimate 32-page book will be signed, numbered, and accompanied by an original print.

About the Limited Edition:
The deluxe edition (copies 1-40) is presented in a handmade slipcase, with an additional exhibition-size original print that is unique to this publication.
