(Golden Cockerel Press)

Woman in Detail.

Severin, Mark (illus.)

London: Golden Cockerel Press, 1947. Octavo. 64pp. From an edition of 550, this is one of 100 copies printed on Arnold's English mould-made paper and specially bound. Signed by the author and the illustrator. Six drawings by Mark Severin depict larger-than-life, almost deific, women, whose bodies and heads appear to be as much landscape as figure, with the tiny people around them evoking the Lilliputians of Gulliver's Travels. Patrick Miller's text offers a literary exploration of their forms, from toe to head. His exposition adopts the tone of the casual but eager philosopher, offering artistic instruction through historical, sensual, and and aesthetic lenses. Uniquely bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in quarter navy morocco with yellow leather over boards, gilt spine titling, and pocket on rear paste-down for an extra suite of illustrations. Mild toning and rubbing to spine, else near fine in aslipcase that has a small ink stain near opening. T.e.g. Item #30576
