$450.00 AUD

Melbourne : the artist, 2008. Oblong quarto, binding by Wolfgang Scheifer of quarto crushed morocco over lettered cloth, housed in a matching slipcase, 129 pp., extensively illustrated. Limited to 12 copies signed by the artist and Wallace-Crabbe. Essays by Sasha Grishin, Chris Wallace-Crabbe and Anne Kirker.

An artist’s book created in Leti’s studio in 2008. The work would be published by the State Library of Victoria and Macmillan as a trade and deluxe edition in 2010.

In printmaking, the artform along with painting, photography and the making of artists’ books that has occupied Bruno Leti for the last half century, the matrix is the object that carries the image the artist has made with the intention of making an impression on a piece of paper when it is run through a press at high pressure.

It appears this hand made edition, limited to only 12 copies, is not held in Australian collections.
