by SCHANILEC, Gaylord.
Newton: Bird & Bull Press, 1996. . 7 x 10 1/2. 79 pages illustrated with 20 wood engravings (most in color), 2 foldout linoleum cuts, & 2 tipped in facsimiles. Nine of the color wood engravings are a progressive series demonstrating reduction cutting. Quarter navy morocco & red silk cloth, in red silk cloth slipcase. Fine with prospectus. Schanilec discusses the evolution of his art, and gives a detailed account of his color printing technique. A progressive series of 9 prints demonstrates reduction cutting in multi-color wood engraving. Reduction cutting allows one block to be printed in more than one color--with perfect registration. However, the block is cannibalized during the process and cannot be re-used -- or retained for one's archive. This is Henry Morris' own copy of the 160 he printed.
