Tiger’s Eye, A Complete Run, Vol. 1, No. 1 (October 1947) to No. 9 (October 1949),
Tiger's Eye (Westport, CT) 1947 - A complete run, in original wraps, accompanied by a subscription solicitation letter (folded) announcing the first issue. Octavos. Generally VG, with light general wear to the covers and toning to newsprint pages. The Tiger’s Eye is considered one of the great short-lived arts magazine of the 20th century; it is so highly regarded that it was the subject of a 2002 gallery show and book by Pamela Franks entitled, The Tiger’s Eye: The Art of a Magazine. Edited by Ruth and John Stephan, it proclaimed itself in its first issue “to be a bearer of ideas and art.” Contributors to the magazine included Thomas Merton, Marianne Moore, Horace Gregory, Van Wyck Brooks, Kenneth Rexroth, Kenneth Patchen, Theodore Roethke, Stephen Spender, William Carlos Williams, Conrad Aiken, T.S. Eliot, John Cage, Richard Wilbur, Kenneth Fearing, and William Everson, among others. John Stephan, an abstract artist, did all the covers and selected the more than one hundred pieces of artwork that were reproduced in Tiger’s Eye during its two-year run, including works by Lyonel Feininger, Mark Rothko, Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee, Kurt Schwitters, Rene Magritte, Wassily Kandinsky, Mark Tobey, Ad Reinhardt, Robert Motherwell, Marc Chagall, Alexander Calder, Alberto Giacometti, Constantin Brancusi, Wilhelm de Kooning, Jackson Pollack, and many others. The Tiger’s Eye is an important record of experimentation in the arts during the pivotal post-war years. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
