JOHN ANDERSON AND THE PICKERING PRESS, AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. WITH A PICKERING PRESS BIBLIOGRAPHY BY JOHN ANDERSON, JAMES FRASER AND ELEANOR FRIEDL.
Fraser, James (editor)
Limited to 150 copies and printed letterpress by Neil Shaver at his Yellow Barn Press on dampened Rives paper. With 20 plates showing Anderson's work including work using color. An excellent look at American typography during the 1940s onward with glimpses into Frederic Goudy, Peter Beilenson, Arthur Rushmore, Robert Middleton, Elmer Adler, Sol Hess, Joseph Blumenthal, Grant Dahlstrom, Claire van Vliet and John DePol. An excellent tribute to John Anderson, perhaps the "last of the great commercial letterpress printers working on the East Coast." With prospectus loosely inserted.
