Macgregor, Miriam
Chimneys in the Sun
Whittington Press, 2019. Two volumes. 8 1/2 x 11 1/2. Eleven leaves of text and 18 watercolored illustrations (4 fullpage). Bound in plain white cloth with orange endpapers reflecting colors of brick hearths and terracotta roofs. A smaller 8-page book reproduces color sketches the artist made of the chimneys in Madeira. And envelope contains several plastic stencils used to create one of the illustrations. All housed in red velvet-lined orange cloth tray case with morocco spine. Fine. The old chimneys -- some standing alone without the original building-- were "once the most decorated and important feature. I never saw the same design twice...." Three years of exacting work produced these glorious sun-drenched images. Macgregor executed the pochoirs herself, in watercolors. Printed on mould-made paper in 14 point Waldbaum type. No. 40 of 49 signed copies. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
Bookseller: The Veatchs Arts of the Book [United States]
