Artists' Books in the Modern Era 1870-2000. The Reva and David Logan Collection.
large quarto, (304)pp. From the dust jacket: "Livres d'artiste have an enduring appeal that has triumphantly survived the twentieth century despite the many technological changes in book production in the modern era. A distinctively French creation, as Donna Stein explains in this magnificently crafted survey, these limited edition books are handmade and combine the written word with original graphic art, executed and printed under the artist's supervision. As almost every well-known painter and sculptor has created at least one book with original illustrations since the late nineteenth century, they have also come to be known as livre de peintre. Publishers such as Ambroise Vollard, Henry Kahnweiler, Iliazd (Ilia Zdanevitch), Albert Skira, Teriade.have engaed the imagination of the finest artists, writers, designers, and printers - among them Picasso, Malevich, Kandinsky, Kokoschka, and Matisse - to collaborate on the creation of the vibrant publications celebrated here in six sections: the evolution of the modern book in the decades before and after 1900; the momentum provided by Modernism in the twenties; the key role of Picasso; the successive influences of Dada, Surrealism, the Second World War and its aftermath; the shift of cultural power to the United States; and the new trends of the contemporary era." With 450 color illustrations. Very fine, without flaw. Bookseller Inventory # 12525
