Description
Tres Semanas (Three Weeks) was Baumann's holiday greeting for 1918. It was his first Koshare Press publication and his first holiday greeting after moving to Santa Fe. The booklet consists of four pages, all uncut, plus cover. The text and images were hand cut on wood by the artist and printed by him in Santa Fe. The original slipcover with the text HOLIDAY GREETINGS / GUSTAVE BAUMANN / SANTA FE N.M. is included. It is unknown how many Tres Semanas were printed but it appears to be very rare.
