About This Item

Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 1966. Pamphlet. Unpaginated concept item given finepress treatment with presswork on various excellent papers, some rubrication with two fold-out leaves printed especially for this multicultural item in Chinese characters and in French (main text however being English). Upright pamphlet sewn with red thread into 11x6 inch printed wraps, some hand-stamped fruit imagery within (as issued), one of a run limited to 1,050. Threads are holding nicely (loose ends at head and tail appear intentional), clean and sound within without any markings, the covers however are tanned and faintly dust-soiled, and the fold-out margins are slightly mis-folded. A good (good-only) copy. Mu-ch'i and Cezanne discuss glory and failure of pigment; "the scene is laid in a copse by some running water, in the Isle of the Blessed, where all painters go when they die. Mu-ch'i, seated on a tree trunk.." and so forth. Cezanne's grumpiness keeps mere preciousness at bay.
