HARD TRAVELING. Etchings and Woodcuts, with selections from writings by John Steinbeck, Woody Guthrie, Grady Harp, Gary Soto, Arthur Miller, Shakespeare, and the Holy Bible.

(San Diego): Brighton Press, (1989). 14 x 11 1/2. Seventeen leaves of letterpress + 12 etchings + 4 oversized woodcuts. The illustrations are all signed. Twelve colorful, tactile etchings are hand-painted in gouache.
Protected by a plexiglass sheet, each is interspersed with a leaf of letterpress text.
Four large woodcuts--also painted and signed--are presented in multiple parts. Each part is numbered, presumably to be assembled by the "reader." The woodcuts, in 4 separate plastic containers, are "Burning House," "Shoe," "Tower," and "Hand."

All contained in drop-back box with button & cord tie. The top of the box is painted & titled by McGraw, with a small inset photo of a young Woody Guthrie playing a guitar. One lower tip of the box is schmushed; all else fine. Item #18511
