Synopsis: As a shop worker for the legendary New York printmakers Joe Wilfer and Walter Hamady, Ruth Lingen learned both her trade and the pleasure of collaborating with living artists. In the years since, she herself has become somewhat of a legend, collaborating with nearly 50 of the world's greatest artists--on prints (some for Pace editions, some on her own) and very special limited edition artist's books. Published on the occasion of her 2005 Whitman College retrospective, this volume includes her print collaborations with Jim Dine, Robert Ryman, Mary Heilmann, Kiki Smith, Chuck Close and Claes Oldenberg; and her book projects with Bob Holman and Chuck Close, Robert Creeley and Jim Dine, Jessica Stockholder and Jeremy Sigler, Donald Traever, Al Held and John Chamberlain, to name a few. Lingen's work can be found in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Getty and the Brooklyn Museum, as well as more than 20 libraries, from the New York Public to Harvard University's.
