N.d., circa 1960. (There is no zip code, thus this must predate 1963.) Oblong, 19 by 27 cm. 132 leaves of different papers, with various colors, textures, patterns. The papers, in addition to the Asian influence, tend to read as modernist. They are just the type of papers one might associate with late fifties, early sixties sleek and "mod". Impressive is the great range and variety while assiduously avoiding anything pictorial. All the papers are in pristine condition, and the album binding has only the slightest of wear. Paper pastedown on boards. String tie. Bookseller Inventory #
