Description

From "A Travel Book" by Fred Martin which was written and illustrated with 78 drawings by Fred Martin, 1976. One of 26 special screen prints, signed by the artist.

The author and artist, then dean of the San Francisco Art Institute, collaborated with Andrew Hoyem on the first Arion Press livre d'artiste. Entries from a diary kept by Martin during a journey more than halfway around the world and his selections from nineteenth-century travel writings are intricately combined with multi-color drawings on every page. The illustrations were printed in black from photo-engravings and in colors from linoleum blocks. The type is handset Inkunabula. The paper was specially made from cotton fiber by the Curtis Paper Company.
