About this Item

This special edition of Oaxaca and the Saguaro Cactus is bound in Clansman Niger Goat and limited to only 25 copies of a total edition of 125 copies. It contains inclusions which are not in the regular edition. They include: Title page- metal tunic underlaid with 23K gold leaf, Page 8 Quezalcoatl underlaid with copper leaf, page 9 Coatlicue underlaid with aluminum leaf, Page 18/19 Quetzal Bird color feathers keyed to actual bird, Page 48/49 Goddess primary pheasant feathers. The book has been letterpress printed on two colors of confetti paper using a Vandercook #14 letterpress and handmade "paper" printing plates and a multitude of printing ink. Laid into book is a letter signed by D'Ambrosio to two of D'Ambrosio's most ardent admirers and good friends asking for a critique as to the pricing of the new book (1996). Also enclosed is a full page handwritten by the author, which deals with a " very successful" slide show in California and comments as to the time it takes to put together this book and the " non-profit" nature of the books as art business. There is also some personal text as to his health and tests he will be taking. Also enclosed is an announcement from the Studio D'Ambrosio introducing this book. This book is astonishing and a joy for any serious collector, and affiliated items is virtually unread. I have read it as has the original owners and is mint in mint clam shell box.
