The Best of Both Worlds
Available in Stock
When classic writing, superb typography and great art meet, the result is a book of exceptional beauty and resonance. This catalogue of a Grolier Club exhibition in New York surveys a century of such volumes, and is itself a work of art. The books it presents feature woodcuts, copper engravings, lithographs and screen prints by artists of the calibre of Picasso, Matisse, Chagall and Warhol; while the writers whose texts they illuminate include Borges, Beckett and Hemingway.
