I mentioned earlier that I have been receiving some of my uncle's things. I thought I would share with you some of my favorite new possessions. Above you see one of my favorite "sets" - it is a collection of drawings spread over time and culture. Below you the inside of the Dutch and the Japanese books.
They are gorgeous books, filled with nice reproductions. They were published in 1965. He had several sets of art history books...he appears to have had all of the Time Life Library of Art "World of..." books.
Then I stumbled onto this....
The drawings are all on different sheets - I can pull each one out and study - a distinct advantage over a bound book. Of course, they could be framed and put up on the wall...now that would be fun! There are color reproductions as well.
And finally, these wood blocks were in with the books and stamps. They are marvelous. Is this the sort of thing you lino printers make?
