About this title


This book tells the story of the remarkable Paris collaboration of Barry Spann and the redoubtable Arnold Fawcus. The result was Twenty-Seven Landscapes: 1977-1983, the last of the livres d'artiste produced in the studio of the Trianon Press, a fine books publisher known for its splendid series of publications of artists as diverse as William Blake and Ben Shahn, Trianon was a place of painstaking bookmaking where Fawcus, perfecting both collotype and pochoir printing, had brought the art of graphic reproduction to the highest level. It was there that Spann, transforming his extraordinary graphite drawings into collotype prints, learned the singular details of those exacting methods.
The Pursuit of Happy Results is a record of those years in Paris, those people, and their beloved process. Produced at The Stinehour Press - the plates, printed in 400-line screen duotone, facsimiles of unprecedented fineness - it is in itself a tour de force of contemporary bookmaking and a book offered with real pride under the HOC VOLO imprint.
