About this Item

Six hand-colored etchings by DeLoss McGraw, in dialogue with the poem "W. D. Meets Mr. Evil While Removing the Record of Bartok and Replacing it with a Recent Recording of the Everly Brothers in order to Create a Mood Conducive to Searching for Cock Robin." (San Diego: Brighton Press, 1985). Ten letterpress printed leaves, of which six are four-page signatures that each enclose an individual hand-colored etching by DeLoss McGraw, laid in. Small octavo, measuring 3-3/4 by 5-1/2 inches, with signatures and etchings laid into a clamshell box of pictorial cloth by DeLoss McGraw. Limited to 50 copies printed on Rives BFK, signed by W. D. Snodgrass and DeLoss McGraw. A fine copy. DeLoss McGraw is well known for using literature and poetry as inspiration for his work, often working in collaboration with contemporary writers and poets. Some of the most beautiful and striking examples of these collaborations have been the beautiful livres d'artiste produced with poet W.D. Snodgrass and the superb artisans of Brighton Press in San Diego. This is one of the three such works. Like all the others, it quickly sold out and is now quite scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 7554
