Color in American Fine and Private Press Books, 1890-2015
PLIBCAFPPB - The Jean-Francois Vilain and Roger S. Wieck Collection of Private Presses, Ephemera, & Related References. This catalogue, which accompanies the Penn Libraries exhibition. Across the Spectrum,explores the establishment of a fine and private press movement in America, beginning at the end of the nineteenth century and continuing to the present day, through its various uses of color. Color was used not only to enhance the page visually, but also to convey important information. Techniques employed to impart color to the page varied, from hand-coloring printed outlines to colored woodcuts and engravings, from applying color through stencils (pochoir) to color lithography, from silkscreening to typographic color. Both the catalogue and the exhibition celebrate the recent acquisition by the Penn Libraries of The Jean-Francois Vilain and Roger S. Wieck Collection of Private Presses, Ephemera, & Related References. The catalogue was designed by Jerry Kelly and includes essays by Lynne Farrington, Russell Maret, and Jean-Francois Vilain as well as exhibition checklist and list of presses in the collection. Illustrated in full color, 132 pages, soft-bound in a letter press printed cover
