FACE TO FACE. TWELVE CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN ARTISTS INTERP...
One of 250 numbered copies of which this has "OS" on the colophon page. This copy came from the library of Michael McCurdy, one of the participants. With an introduction by Leonard Baskin and a dedication print by Lynd Ward. Fifteen printed folders containing an engraved self-portrait by the artist which are numbered and signed and laid into the printed folder with a page of text about the artist. With an additional suite of the 13 signed (but not numbered) prints on different paper. The twelve artists are: Fred Becker, Jack Coughlin, John DePol, Fritz Eichenberg, Raymond Gloeckler, James Grashow, Judith Jaidinger, Stefan Martin, Michael McCurdy, Barry Moser, Gillian Tyler, and Herbert Waters. Lynd Ward's previously unpublished print is not signed, due to Ward's death before the project was completed. Harold McGrath printed the blocks, which were cancelled at the end of the press run. Originally issued in a box at $1600. The wrapper-bound edition was issued at $625. Seven of the artists have died since their contribution to this project.
