Halska, Véronique (illus.)

Paris: Moreau, (1983). Oblong 12mo. (26) pp. Illustrated by Baltazar. From an edition of 220 copies, this is one of forty signed by the author and by the illustrator, and handcolored. Reproduced entirely by serigraphy, the text is from the author's own manuscript. The abstract black and white illustrations have been colored with pencils by Baltazar. In a unique binding by Véronique Halska of full red snakeskin, with a nickel-plated brass tubular spine. Protected by a black morocco chemise, titled in silver, with a slipcase of morocco and gray paper. The original pictorial wrappers have been mounted on black morocco, which is edged with red snake skin, and fit into the opposite end of the slipcase. Véronique Halska, a Belgian binder, has been widely exhibited in Europe, her bindings appearing at the Centre Pompidou and at the exhibition "Petits Formats Relis" at the Wittockiana Museum in Belgium. Her goal is to "integrate in bindings very diversified materials, always trying to insert in the work fineness and equilibrium, all in harmony with the text." This is a very elegant and tasteful example of her work, and a fine copy. Item #6580
