Dresden: Verlag der Kunst, 1959.
Hardcover. Large portfolio box (12 ½” x 16”). Quarter cloth and printed paper over boards with cardboard sides. The sides are partially split and torn at the corners and spine ends, thus about very good. The portfolio contains a stapled 12pp. letterpress catalog (with the text printed in German, Russian, English and French); and 48 loose black & white and color prints (11 ¾” x 15 ½”), reproducing artworks exhibited at the International Book Arts Exhibition in Dresden in 1959, all in fine condition. The prints are numbered 1-48 on the versos, and each print also has the title of the artwork printed on the verso. Included is Picasso’s portrait of Frederick Joliot-Curie, and graphic works by Frans Masereel, William Gropper, Makoto Ueno and others. Most of the prints are relief halftones, very finely printed, all in excellent condition. A beautiful complete set of all 48 images.
