Malcolm Payne’s Face Value is a hand-made book with fourteen copper plate etchings, plus seven etched renderings of his sculptural series, the Mafikeng heads, and essays by curator Patricia Davison, archaeologist Martin Hall, and Payne. The etchings were printed on Zerkal Buetten paper by Paulus Paas. Kathy Abdolaziz set the text in Garamond, and Omega Arts did the lithography.
