- Over 100 broadsides, including one stunner from Claire Van Vliet’s Aunt Sallie’s Lament series plus another featuring Claire’s timeless pulp paper-painting.
- A suite of 25 hand-colored “pochoir” prints in triptych with a church window-shaped custom box called New World Saints by Catherine Ferguson and the Press of the Palace of Governors. (shown above)
- EVE, a gorgeous hanging book construction with a poem by Sandra McPherson. Book by Susan Johanknecht with letterpress by Janus Press in Vermont. Comes in a box lined with black chiffon.
These are just a few of the very special works we installed until too late last night. Both rooms of the gallery are filled with an amazing collection of letterpress, books, broadsides and more!
David Abel, of Passages Bookshop, has brought us a very special event in the gallery: a trunk sale featuring artist’s books, fine printing, broadsides, books about books, art, and photography. Many of the items are long out of print and hard to find. You’ll find books by and about such artists as Ken Campbell, Walter Hamady and his renowned Perishable Press, Rampant Lions, Whittington Press, Harry Duncan, Nexus Press, Granary Books, Katherine Kuehn of Salient Seedling Press (pictured above), Landlocked Press, Black Mesa Press, and many others.
In fact, this event has generated such enthusiasm that we have extended it through Monday, 11-3 p.m.
P.S. David is offering all of the books and broadsides in this show with a special event discount. Don’t miss this unique opportunity.
