About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: ABC

Publisher: (Blue Chair Press) (1997), (Blue Lake, CA)

Publication Date: 1997

Binding: Trade Paperback

Book Condition: Fine

Edition: First Edition.


[30] leaves. An ABC artist's book (livre d'artiste). Each letter is represented by a leaf blind embossed with a design made only from large, wooden type of that letterform. The letters become three-dimensional and are visible due to a subtle interplay of light and shadow. The paper is Arches 140# printmaking paper and the book was 'printed' on a Griffin etching press. A wonderful and unusual artist's book, issued in an edition of 100 copies. Benjamin has signed the book in watercolor on the title page. Issued in a folding paper chemise. Very uncommon in the trade. Most copies were sold locally in Humboldt County, California, and OCLC lists only three copies. First edition (first printing). Copy 3 of 100, with two additional unbound sheets laid in.
