Tom Phillips Short Catalog
Granary Books is pleased to offer for sale a number of works by the artist Tom Phillips, including seven of his signed screenprints illustrating Dante's Inferno, as well as signed pages from the Tetrad Press edition of his groundbreaking altered book, A Humument.
Phillips's translation and illustration of Dante's Inferno by Talford Press in 1983 received the Frances Williams Memorial Prize; Waddington Graphics published a limited signed edition of nine larger screenprints of these striking illustrations. A Humument is an artist's book that Phillips began in 1966 and completed in 2016 in six versions, altering W. H. Mallock's obscure 1892 Victorian work, titled A Human Document, with painting, collage, and cut-up techniques. Retitled A Humument, it was first published as a series of boxed editions of pages, printed by Ian Tyson at Tetrad Press in London.
