Limited edition hand numbered artists book from an edition of 165.
Twenty-seven original linocuts by Enid Marx, hand coloured following a plan devised by Peter Allen.
The linocuts published in this book were completed in 1979. Over the next few years they appeared occasionally in exhibitions of her work, but a formal edition of the prints was never made, and they are appearing here, in their “proper” book format, for the first time.
Linocuts printed on a heavy, acid-free paper, Fabriano Artistico, made from 100% cotton fibres and retaining their deckled fore-edge. Binding is blue cloth, with sides covered in a design reconstructed from one of the patterned papers she created in the late 1920s for The Little Gallery in London.
