        WALLS: A JOURNEY ACROSS THREE CONTINENTS

      Santa Cruz: The Quail Press, 1990. First Edition. hardcover. Fine in a Fine slipcase. A beautiful and ambitious book. Tom Killion. Folio (10-1/4" x 13") bound in half russet morocco and linen sides and printed on hand-made Japanese Torinoko paper. [v], 103 pages. Nine years in the making, this beautiful travel diary (North America, Europe, and Africa) was written and illustrated by Killion with relief engravings, linocuts, monochrome woodcuts, and 21 multi-colored woodcuts. On the colophon page the artist/author describes the process of making this book: "WALLS is the product of a long gestation—even for a book. I originally intended only to reproduce an illustrated travel diary from a journey I made in 1976-1977. I began carving the blocks for WALLS in 1981 and, in a burst of impetuosity, I printed a dated title page in 1983. The book fell victim to more pressing demands, however, which included further travels in Africa--and as I traveled WALLS continued to grow. I finally designed the present book in 1988, but in the meantime I had printed many of the multi-colored woodcuts. WALLS was completed in January 1990 at the Quail Press in Santa Cruz. Every book required one hundred and ninety-nine pulls on my Asbern proof press." Of a total edition of only 131 copies, this is #63 of 100 numbered copies. Tom Killion founded the Quail Press in Santa Cruz in 1977. His multi-colored woodblock printing shows the influence of the Japanese Ukiyo-e style of Hokusai and Hiroshige.

        Edwardian Golfers

      Italy 1990 - Marco Ceri lives in Northern Italy where he paints in oil on copper pictures in a very specific genre all his own. They are paintings of English people engaged at polo, golf or tennis during the Edwardian era. A great deal of research provides a high degree of accuracy to every aspect of these scenes including, of course, the attire and sports equipment, but even the postures and demeanors of the participants. The accuracy of the elements however does not intrude on the overall delight expressed in these tableaux. The artist keeps a low profile, enjoying his virtual anonymity. He considers himself a craftsman, who by limiting his sphere of activity, brings that craft closer and closer to perfection. Oil on copper.
