STEICHEN: EDUARD ET VOULANGIS. The Early Modernist Period 1915-1923
Toronto: Lumiere Press and Howard Greenberg Gallery, 2011. Printed in a numbered edition of 250, Numbers 1 to 50 have been retained by the Howard Greenberg Gallery. 8 x 10 inches; 55 pages. The edition has been hand bound in copper-colored Asahi Japanese silk on the spine and fore-edges. A central panel of Canal rag paper, crafted at Papeterie Saint-Armand in Montreal, has been printed in gold with a pattern extrapolated by Michael Torosian from a nineteenth-century sketch by Koloman Moser. The endpapers, a rich stock of muted tonalities, were crafted at the Papeterie Saint-Armand in Montreal. To preserve the extraordinary presence of Steichen's printmaking, each plate in the book has been hand tipped onto the page. The sixteen images have been meticulously reproduced in 10 micron stochastic four-color offset lithography on Mohawk Superfine paper and varnished to emulate the finish of the originals. The text has been cast in lead on the Intertype model C4 using the 10 point Linotype cutting of designer Hermann Zapf's Palatino with his companion typeface Aldus for display. Presented in a handmade slipcase wrapped and lined in black Asahi bookcloth. "Eduard et Voulangis is a fitting volume to mark [the Silver Anniversay of Lumiere Press]. With a folio of Steichen masterpieces and newly discovered images published here for the first time, the book is an examination of a key period in the artistic evolution of one of the most important figures in the history of twentieth century art." As our copy is still in the original plastic bag it came in, the above description has been taken from the Prospectus on the website of Lumiere Press. To see the prospectus, photographs, and making of this fine book that Gerhard Steidl (an important publisher of photography books today), called "A masterpiece," copy this address into your browser: Limited, First Edition. Hard Cover in Slipcase. New.. Octavo.
