Baskin, Leonard (illus.)

(Northampton, MA: Gehenna Press, 1967). Quarto. (31)ff. One of 250 copies, this one inscribed in pencil from Leonard Baskin to Ben Tighe, a well-known bookseller in the Northampton area. The inscription is curiously dated "1947" in Baskin's hand. Using the collection of type ornaments owned by Bruce Rogers, Baskin has interpreted and embellished twenty-eight mottos with inks of many different colors. He has created a delightfully gentle typographical "collage," and he later said that this book was one of his favorites. With an Afterword by Dale R. Roylance. Bottom corner lightly bumped, else fine in quarter vellum over marbled boards. Item #26649

Price: $1,250.00
