14.5 x 19″; 16 leaves. 12 monoprints. Drypoints printed by Rebecca Peters and hand colored by the artist. Housed in blue cloth covered clamshell box by John DeMerritt.
This isn’t technically a book, but local artist Matt Phillips brought us one the rarest items we have in stock, a collection of of monoprints each based on and inspired by a different jazz composition. Of 21 total copies made, 18 are numbered and signed by the artist. We have number 4.
Phillips has shown his art at major galleries across the country and has work in the permanent collections at The Art Institute of Chicago, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Smithsonian, The National Museum of Modern Art and many other institutions.
This collection is listed at other locations for $2,200 and $3,000, but because we are lucky enough to be Matt’s local used bookstore, he’s allowing us to list our copy for $1,400. A great price for a great addition to the collection of aficionados of contemporary art and/or jazz.
