Description:

Signed limited edition of this whimsical artist's book, number 98 of 100 copies. In the late 1990s, printer Dikko Faust of New York's Purgatory Pie Press produced small individual linocuts of the United States for a datebook project. English visitor Patrick Brill, better known as the artist "Bob and Roberta Smith," promptly misidentified the unlabeled states as destinations closer to home: Florida becomes Devon, Louisiana becomes Glamorgan, Pennsylvania the Arctic Circle, and Tennessee the English Channel. This folding panorama features the full sweep of the artist's imaginary geography, and is signed by "Bob and Roberta Smith," Dikko Faust, and designer Esther Smith. A fine copy. Miniature folding color-printed pictorial panorama, measuring 2.25 x 2 inches folded, and extending to a length of almost eleven feet extended. Printed single-sided with pink linocuts and blue letterpress text, colophon printed to verso in blue. Signed in pencil by "Bob and Roberta Smith" (the artist Patrick Brill), designer Esther Smith, and printer Dikko Faust. Housed in a pale blue paper sleeve printed in red. Bookseller Inventory #
