The Sculpture of David Wynne 1968/1974
London: Phaidon Press Limited, 1974. Signed Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. This is the signed, limited edition, copy #39 of 125, hand-numbered thus on the limitation page. The binding is "full aniline finish Bookcalf" by Sangorski & Sutcliffe with raised spine bands, gilt rule compartments, hand-marbled endpapers, gilt-rule turn-ins, and gilt page edges. A gilt medallion "in fine silver, modelled by the sculptor" is inset on the front cover. The half-title bears the artist's signature in bold, black ink. The pristine fine binding is housed in a felt-lined dark red buckram clamshell case with a gilt-stamped spine label matching the binding's dark red calf. David Wynne (1926 - ) is a renowned British sculptor of figures, animals, and portraits, including the Queen and the Beatles. He was awarded the OBE in 1994. This spectacular limited edition features his work from 1968-1974 - what the 1974 introduction by Graham Hughes calls "Wynne's twelve most important public commissions of the past eight years." Each work is illustrated with photographs taken by Clive Barda "showing the settings as well as the most beautiful features of each piece." The book itself remains in flawlessly fine condition, with no discernable wear or defects and no markings other than the artist's signature. The clamshell preservation case shows only trivial scuffing and some spotting to the white felt lining. Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage.
