About this Item

Framed etching measuring 11 by 8 inches. One of an unknown number of copies; the edition was probably no greater than 200. An image of an early flying machine crashed and abandoned in a field of clover, printed in green with a caption printed in orange. A black border frames the scene. This is an early etching by Lance Hidy, who was a co-founder of the Godine Press in Boston. The artist and printer have a long history of collaboration. The original version of this print was made while Hidy was at Yale in 1966 or '67, and this, the second, was made a few years later with Godine's encouragement. Hidy found his inspiration for the image in an old book on early aviation at the Yale library, and in the accompanying correspondence, he explains that "there was a dignity to this image of failure, and the wording of the caption, that may have given me some solace." Extremely fine. Bookseller Inventory # 22930
