LEYDIN, Arthur (1932 - 2010)

The 12 Christmas drawings

  • Sold

[Sydney : probably Sydney College of the Arts, between 1977 – 1980]. Quarto, self-wrappers, pp. [24], illustrated.

Rare (unrecorded?) self-published artist’s book by the Melbourne born graphic designer and artist, almost certainly created while in residence at the Sydney College of the Arts (due to internal references) where he lectured in the 1970s.

‘In 1977 Leydin was invited to become foundation principal lecturer at the new College of Advanced Education, Sydney College of the Arts, where he took on a three year contract as principal lecturer and head of the department of visual communications – this also entailed writing course outlines and appointing academic staff – Leydin also secured degree accreditation for visual communication students.’ –  GUIDE TO THE ARTHUR LEYDIN ARCHIVE IN THE POWERHOUSE MUSEUM – Jill Chapman 2006, http://images.powerhousemuseum.com/images/pdfs/302379.pdf
