by FREEMAN, DON
FREEMAN, DON. FREEMAN,DON. DON FREEMAN'S NEWSSTAND Volume 1, No.2, Series III. 4to (8 1/2 x 11"), spiral bound, no date [1945?] Fine condition. This is the San Francisco Number of Don Freeman's self published periodical Newsstand. Issues of Newsstand would come out at irregular intervals and contained lithographs of whatever struck Freeman's fancy at the time. In 1945, the United Nations met in San Francisco and the first part of this issue contains his impressions of the delegates. The remainder of the pages are what Freeman calls his "random ramblings" including a small section on Santa Barbara as well. Printed on one side of the paper, each leaf has a full page lithograph with a line or two of descriptive text. LAID IN IS AN INSCRIBED LARGE SELF PORTRAIT OF FREEMAN WITH A TINY MOUSE SITTING ON HIS HEAD. Bader (p.206) describes these magazines as having "a fine bit of bravura John Sloan, it shows the same eye for incident, a like skill in handling light and dark." (Freeman studied under John Sloan at the Art Student's League). Scarce and extra special with the inscribed drawing.
