Bridge book
[Minneapolis]: Walker Art Center and Minnesota Center for Book Arts, 1991. Edition limited to 329 copies, this one of 300 of the regular edition, numbered and signed by Armajani, small oblong folio, frontispiece on translucent paper, 3 preliminary leaves plus 7 sections, each descriptive and illustrative of a particular bridge designed by Armajani, and each consisting of a colored folding woodblock print, and a half-sheet leaf of text containing a description of the bridge in question, and a photograph of it (3 of the photographs in color). Original cloth-backed printed paper-covered boards, without the publisher's die-cut slipcase, but enclosed in a green cloth clamshell box. Prospectus and order form laid in. As new. The woodblocks were printed by Gaylord Schanilec, and the endsheets were printed by Kent Aldrich. Inspired by his commission from the Walker Art Center to design a pedestrian bridge connecting the Walker Sculpture Garden with Loring Park (spanning "sixteen lanes of roadway"), the book "pays homage to seven of Armajani's bridge designs." Quarter to Midnight A.104.
