ARTISANS. A Book of Phantasies in Monotype.

Northampton: Gehenna Press, 1997. 9 1/2 x 12 1/2. 26 leaves, including 24 mult-colored montotype portraits of imaginary artisans. Tray case. Fine. This copy not bound, to better have the opportunity to individually display the portraits. Included is a special full leather inlaid and gilt replica of the binding cover by Claudia Cohen, who bound the rest of the edition; the spine design is here used on the tray case. Item #5453

No. 10 of 10 signed copies; with each monotype (i.e. printed from Baskin's hand-colored plate) signed and numbered by Baskin. Michael Kuch printed the monotypes; Art Larson printed the text from hand set and printed Cancelleresca Bastarda type. Very much in the tradition of the fictive Jewish Artists and kin to the Icones editions. This labor intensive edition is certainly the scarcest of Baskin's later works, and one of the most limited ever printed at the Gehenna Press.

Price: $15,000.00
