The Work & Play of Adrian Wilson; A Bibliography with Commentary Edited by Joyce Lancaster Wilson. Designer, Printer, author

Austin: W. Thomas Taylor, 1983. 158p., letterpress on superb paper and quarter-bound in goat ("Oasis Morocco;" it's the first thing you notice) over 15.5x10.5 inch linen boards. The frontis photo (8x7 inches) by Ansel Adams, laser-scanned and printed in duo-blacks. Number 85 of 325 copies. One flaw: the upper cover bears a sprinkle of foxing round the cloth margins, and the lower cover is faintly (very faintly) flecked with dust. In every other respect, fine.

The very last entry, no.196, describes this self-same book, and includes detail on its production that serves as a super-colophon; also at that entry find a second portrait of A.W., 3x3 inches, this in his pressroom inspecting a sheet.

Cat.No: 210200
