About this Item

Folio. 21 (2)pp., 63 plates. Original illustrated dustjacket over red cloth with facsimile signature in black on cover, black lettering on spine. Peach endpapers. Collection of 63 b/w and color lithographs of drawings. Janssen divides these drawings into four categories, the first being drawings depicting motifs for the "general market." These usually take some doing to make them "market conform," meaning to consider the various demands of the contemporary market. Then, there are the motifs meant as gifts, which take him but half an hour to complete. Thirdly, his self portraits, a discipline he deems to be undervalued in his time, bring his graphic talent to the fore and at the same time garner the greatest attention and effect. Not to mention that these are in Janssen's opinion the easiest and most comfortable way to make money. Lastly there are what Janssen calls potpourri drawings; little drawings of landscapes or illustrations for his own poetry and such. In translation Janssen comments: "In hindsight the critics confuse these days past: they rock a crib that I never laid in, draw paths into my wandering years I never walked in, and they put meat onto my plate that don like." Text in German. DJ rubbed with some markings and water stains at foredge of front cover and along edges of back cover. Binding with wear along edges, small chips along edges and head and tail of spine. Slight age-toning of block along edges not affecting images and some staining of foredge not transferring onto pages. DJ and binding in overall good-, interior in goo+ to very good condition.
