72 color plates printed one side with captions on facing pages. 189 pp. Black cloth with gilt lettering, in dustjacket. 28.5 x 29 cm. This is not a conventional limited edition issued by the publisher, but rather a copy of the trade edition that the artist has improved with a fine original drawing in brown and black ink on a thin sheet of cork; this version is housed in a cork slipcase decorated in gilt. There is no limitation notice, but the number of copies must be very small. The unique drawing is sandwiched between two leaves of the endpaper stock with a protective sheet of drafting vellum and inserted between the final text leaf and the normal endpaper. The five sections of plates are: "Fresco tempera1977-1995"; "Oils on linen 1995-1996"; Industrial paints on canvas 1983-1985"; Pigments on prepared surface 1976-1994"; and "Pigmentation on cork 1993-1996." The imagery derives from traditional painting of India infused with a great feeling for surface and material. The book is pristine and is priced well below the $1,000 the artist asks for similar copies on his website. ISBN 0-9656610-0-8 **Free domestic shipping with direct order.
