TONE, TEXTURE, LIGHT & SHADE: A BARNETT FREEDMAN PICTURE ...
by Rogerson, Ian (intro)
First edition. The Fleece Press has just released their new title: Tone, Texture, Light & Shade - a tribute to Barnett Freedman, one of the great graphic designers of the twentieth century. A designer of many ephemeral items and posters, Freedman was also a painter who, after his third enrollment attempt, attended Royal College of Art in the 1920s. This new publication presents samples of his work and an introduction by Ian Roberson. Printed in an edition of 330 copies, with an original tipped-in lithographic illustration from one of Barnett's books and ten folding tipped-in illustrations, some letterpress, on the final stock of high-quality Parilux paper by J. W. Northend, Sheffield. All copies are quarter bound in cloth and a truly stunning Freedman patterned paper.
