NY: The Library Fellows of the Whitney Museum of American Art, 1983. Oblong small quarto. (44)pp. One of 140 copies signed by the author. Illustrated with a signed intaglio frontispiece and sixteen color portraits in various media by Saul Steinberg. Each image is accompanied by text that "[finds] 'in' every one of the artist's portraits of persons, a place that was not available for picturing save in words.... They are a drawing and a figuration in prose - a metaphor for - the act of drawing, an homage paid by the chatterbox pen to the wise silent pencil." Printed by Gabriel Rummonds at Ex Ophidia, and bound in silver-stamped blue-gray cloth with a cream paper spine. Housed in a tan cloth drop back box. This copy was printed for Bernard M. Barenholtz, a member of the Library Fellows of the Whitney Museum of American Art. A list of the Library Fellows is laid in. Very fine. Item #26645
