About this Item

Twelve engraved self portraits, each numbered and signed by the artist and laid into a printed folder with a page of text about the artist. With an introduction by Leonard Baskin and a dedication print by Lynd Ward, also contained in printed folders. There is also an additional suite of the 13 signed (but not numbered) prints on different paper, for a total of 26 prints. The twelve artists are: Fred Becker, Jack Coughlin, John DePol, Fritz Eichenberg, Raymond Gloeckler, James Grashow, Judith Jaidinger, Stefan Martin, Michael McCurdy, Barry Moser, Gillian Tyler, and Herbert Waters. Lynd Ward's previously unpublished print is not signed, due to Ward's death before the project was completed. Harold McGrath printed from the blocks, which were cancelled at the end of the press run. Originally issued in a box at $1600, but only a few were issued as they proved too expensive to produce. The wrapper-bound edition was issued at $625. With four page prospectus with insert describing this production in detail. Also included is a printed page showing the birth (and death) dates of the artists. Seven have died since their contribution to this project. 14 printed folders with print loosely inserted in all but one, 13 loose hand printed broadsides (26 total prints).
