Fini, Leonor
La Grande Parade Des Chats Signed, Limited Edition, 178/230
Agori, 1973. KB19.60 mounted colour lithograph plates of fanciful, whimsical cats, each pencil signed by the author, each numbered, [iii] ff. A tall quarto in matching slip case, both in cream with whimsical winged cats in brown and orange. The slipcase has some rubbing at the extremities, a faint pencil mark at the top right corner. Book itself has a very small bump/imperfection at the bottom of the spine, interior is clean and unmarked, slight offsetting of the prints to the facing verso as is common. The Justification page at the back has Fini's signature. 230 were printed on handmade Arches paper. Because each of the whimsical and lovely plates is hand signed by Fini, the books were often broken up, so not many survive complete. This is a very attractive copy. Fini (1907-1996) was Argentinian by birth, but she lived in Europe most of her life where she enjoyed an artistic, feminist life, with a number of lovers and devoted friends and, at times, as many as 23 cats. ; Lithograph; 4to 11" - 13" tall; Signed by Author [Attributes: Signed Copy]
