About this Item

Edition of 150 copies, plus 15 hors de commerce, numbered in Roman numerals, of which this is one, signed by the artist and the printer. Format: 15 by 11 inches, 64 pages. Printed damp on French handmade Apta Velin from the Richard De Bas Mill. The text type is Garamond Bold composed by Monotype, reset by hand; the display capitals are Stempel Garamond Titling. Bound in oak boards carrying a lightning bolt pattern in blind, with white pigskin spine. The spine is slightly sunned, faint scratch on rear cover, else a fine copy. The Book of Revelation was the first of several projects that printer Andrew Hoyem has undertaken with Jim Dine, and it was his first collaboration with a major American artist. The text is set in two sizes of type as a reading device to differentiate the speakers: 14 point for the account of St. John, 18 point for louder pronouncements from on high. Artist Books in the Modern Era, no. 168. Bookseller Inventory # 29324
