New York: Collier Books. 1974. First paper edition. Small quarto. Illustrated stiff wraps. Wraps are faintly tanned. Spine has a faint crease else a near fine copy of this excellent collection of the woodcuts of artist Antonio Frasconi. Profusley illustratred. A wonderful book.
First Edition Thus, so stated. Good+ in Wraps: shows indications of moderate use: slight spine lean and there is a fairly heavy crease at the backstrip; light wear to extremities, but the lower front corner tip has been "chewed", with small loss therefrom, perhaps by the family dog, perhaps by a child; mild rubbing and faint soiling to wrapper covers; former owner's business card affixed to the lower corner of the front free endpaper. Clearly flawed, but structurally sound and tightly bound: a sturdy, presentable copy. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. Large Format 4to. 159pp. Profusely illustrated with the Woodcuts, graphic arts, illustrations, portraits, posters, and box art of Antonio Frasconi, many if not most in Color. Introduction by Nat Hentoff. Apreciation by Charles Parkhurst. Trade Paperback. Antonio Frasconi presents varied artwork: prints, literary illustrations, porfolios, portraits, lettering, posters, and box art. Mostly, the book includes woodcuts, some presented in black-and-white and some in color, with many in full-page--though some in reduced form. There's even a fold-out, "To Brooklyn Bridge." The subtitle AGAINST THE GRAIN, as discussed in the book's introduction, reveals something about Frasconi's views on art, namely, that a real artist must go "against the grain" and reveal the obscured truths we all need to see in order to better ourselves. Overall, the sampling is generous, interesting, and beautiful.
