Schaer, Miriam
Original Artist's Book:] THE HISTORY OF HOSIERY
The Artist, [Brooklyn, 1986. Narrow octavo (17.5 x 8 cm). Painted silk binding, with laces. Fold-outs consisting of two folded leaves of heavy stock, with double- spread center piece. In line with the material used, fine. A unique artist's book by this prominent American book artist, composed with mixed media and bound in a painted silk binding with raised girdle-snaps arranged under the silk and other features evocative of the subject. The three separate images consist of collaged pictorial clippings, worked over by hand with paint and other media. This is a good example of Schaer's exploration, often through the literal use of garments, of feminist and social issues. This work was exhibited at the 1986 Center for Book Arts "New Works" show, and in 1990, at the Lower East Side Print Shop exhibition, "Selections."
Bookseller: William Reese Company - Literature, ABAA [New Haven, CT, U.S.A.]
