(Whittington Press)

A Vision of Order.

Anderson, Andrew (illus.)

Herefordshire: Whittington Press, 2011. Folio. One of thirty-five deluxe copies signed by the author/artist, Andrew Anderson, with an additional portfolio containing a signed proof of "Apple Girl," and a print of "The Rock of Cashel," comprised of nine sheets joined together to form an architectural rendering of the medieval cathedral measuring 4 ½ x 3 feet. A monumental collection of thirty-five linocuts of cathedrals and medieval structures by Anderson, presented full-size, with the artist's commentary on each of the illustrations. Anderson has been a practicing architect for most of his career, and began making wood-engravings and linocuts in 1956, when he was nineteen years old. Early on, he became deeply influenced by Eric Gill, but eventually discovered his own voice as an artist by referencing architectural elements and mixing images with lettering and symbolism. Bound in boards printed with one of Anderson's illustrations in red, backed in violet. The additional prints are in a matching portfolio, and both book and portfolio are housed in a gray solander box. Extremely fine. Item #31205

(Matrix 28, pp. 9-14).
