Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "Weaves the colorful story of New Mexico book artists, their dedication to a timeless craft and their extraordinary contribution to the literature of the region. Together with more than 150 photographs, the lively narrative sheds light on the small press and its printers, a little known chapter in the much published history of Southwest arts. From the work of nineteenth-century printers strongly influenced by the church to the handsome illustrated books created by Santa Fe and Taos art colonists in the 1920s and 1930s to the contemporary printings spawned by creative-edge book artists caught up in a technological revolution, this is distinctly a New Mexico story." : Color Photographs: 8.25 x 11 in.: 223 pages
