In 1904, a group of writers and artists founded a publishing house Zalktis that paid much attention to the visual qualities of books that featured drawings and letters in the art nouveau style complemented with graphic ornaments and flowing lines. The founders of Latvian graphics also used to draw for the popular humour periodicals. In 1907 in St Petersburg the magazine Periens, Speriens, Keriens replaced the earlier Zvargula Zobgala kalendars. Graphic vignettes for literary magazines have been drawn by most Latvian artists who also considered it an honour to provide illustrations for original works in poetry and prose by Latvian authors. Rihards Zarinš, Olgerts Abelite, Peteris Upitis, Aleksandrs Junkers, Arturs Apinis are all regarded classics of the genre. The first exhibition of graphic arts, with the participation of thirteen authors with 104 works, took place shortly before World War I. Since then, Latvians have particularly excelled in wood etching that is considered one of the most difficult techniques."; CONDITION of Plates & Booklet: the wrap around folder houseing booklet and plates have rubbing, tears, and a small piece of title on spine is mising but still solid; the stampled illustrated booklet -as issued- have some small creases to the front & back covers; all the plates (with tissue guards) have no foxing or tears and are in VERY GOOD COND.
