Vues de Venise. Mezzotints by Judith Rothchild
Verdigris Press Octon, France: Verdigris Press. 2002. One of 6 copies, from a total issue of 50, (8 with an original copper plate and additional mezzotint, 6 with an additional mezzotint, this copy, 36 regular copies) all on Hahnemuhle paper, this special copy with an additional mezzotint not in the regular edition, each signed and numbered by the artist, Judith Rothchild. Page size: 8 x 10 inches; 16pp. Bound: reversible accordion-fold (leporello), covers of hand-marbled Venetian papers in red, black and gold over boards; as issued in black slipcase with Venetian paper accents, title in letterpress in black on marbled paper insert, white label on cover boards a bit ink spotted, else fine. Text in original French. This book, which is completely reversible has on one side a text on Venice by George Sand and on the other by Emile Zola, each with three Rothchild mezzotints of doorways, bridges and canals. Sand's delightful description of Venice in springtime forms a sharp contrast to Zola's grim portrayal of a decadent city in decay. Like the illustrations themselves, the texts provide a provocative study of contrasts. An extraordinarily beautiful book redolent with the eternal allure of Venice. See an Image.
