The book, which has over 400 pages and 800 illustrations, has been published by Patrick Cramer, Geneva. Both Patrick and his late father Gérald worked closely with Moore for many years on his printmaking.
Print-making formed an increasingly important part of Moore’s work from the 1970s, when he worked with specialist printers and publishers internationally to meet a growing demand for his work. There are 719 prints in the Moore catalogue raisonné, and of these, 363 appear in some form of deluxe book or portfolio.
The book charts the rich and varied histories of these prints and portfolios, which were created by the artist in collaboration with other artists, writers, typographers, printers and publishers from 1931 onwards.
Also in the book are little-known one-off graphic projects by the artist – a wine label for the 1964 Mouton Rothschild vintage, for example, Moore’s personal book plate design, and a print conceived for a bold scheme to introduce modern art to schools.
