From The Book of Legends.

Granary Books, 1989. Item #3702

8 1/2 x 5 5/8 in., 38 pp., bound in full-leather with cloth-covered clamshell box.

Maya Deren, Joseph Cornell, Charles Olson: all of these artists discovered and established new means for expressing their experience through forms imbued with the original powers of myth, history, and ritual. In this, her first book, Jane Brakhage (now Jane Wodening) explored the lives of these three American heroes with sensitivity, intelligence, and compassion. Drawing from the traditions of King Arthur’s Court, she arrives at a vivid style all her own in these contemporary legends of boldness and creativity.

Designed and printed letterpress on Frankfurt Cream by Philip Gallo at The Hermetic Press.

This is no. 176. It has been specially bound by Sarah Pringle in the early 1990s in full leather with colorful inlays and assorted gestural die stamping. Housed in a cloth-covered clamshell box. Both items fine.
