Ithaca, NY: n.p., n.d. Fine. Item #21057 .
Apparently a unique copy, one of Fernando Llosa's beautiful one-of-a-kind artist books. Fourteen mounted Indian ink washes by the artist loose in case. The mounts are 8 inches square. The illustrations vary considerably in size. Each mount is initialed by the artist on the reverse, and each illustration has a barely visible number written on the lower right corner. A fine set in its original clamshell case.
The case itself is a work of art. Tan buckram. The upper board contains a raised square onto which are onlaid a golden disk and a petrified fossil. The inside is lined with a soft Asian paper containing flower petals. The artist has written the title and publishing information on the inside of the upper cover.
While Llosa has done some limited editions, some books are unique. Examples are "Seen in Ithaca" and "A Glimpse of Death from the Vantage Point of Love". His books are always scarce and much in demand because of his fabulous ink washes.
In fine condition.
