FACE TO FACE. TWELVE CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN ARTISTS INTERP...
Originally printed in a run of 250 numbered sets, the two sets of prints included in this "Out of Series" set are printed on two different types of paper. Included is the original dedication print by Lynd Ward. The original twelve self portraits are engraved by the artist which signed, but not numbered. With an additional suite of the 12 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 Lynd Ward's previously unpublished print is not signed, due to Ward's death before the project was completed.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, but only a few were issued with the box as it was cancelled due to it being too expensive to produce. The wrapper-bound edition was issued at $625. This is for the two sets of prints that are signed. With four page prospectus with insert describing this production in detail.
