55 pages. The Early Modernist Period, 1915 – 1923. Essay by Michael Torosian, Introduction by Howard Greenberg. A co-publication of the Howard Greenberg Gallery and Lumiere Press. A folio of Steichen masterpieces and newly discovered images published here for the first time, the book is an examination of a key period in the artistic evolution of one of the most important figures in the history of twentieth century art.
To preserve the extraordinary presence of Steichen’s printmaking, each of the 16 plates in the book has been hand tipped onto the page. Hand bound in copper-colored Asahi Japanese silk on the spine and fore-edges. A central panel of Canal rag paper, crafted to our specifications at Papeterie Saint-Armand in Montreal, has been printed in gold with a pattern extrapolated by Michael Torosian from a nineteenth-century sketch by Koloman Moser. Presented in a handmade slipcase wrapped and lined in black Asahi bookcloth.
Printed in a numbered edition of 250.
