About This Item

London: n.p., 1998. Fine.. Limited edition artist's book that reflects on the colors, textures, and history of two ancient cities, incorporating a variety of illustration methods and materials. Susan Allix reflects on her creative philosophy, "I am concerned with visual things so I see books as full of colour and form in a pictorial sense as well as through the images created in my mind by the words, and through the sculptural qualities a book possesses" (artist statement). This richly-illustrated textural travelogue, with only two pages of text, is a beautiful example of Allix's artistry and skill at telling stories through visuals. Only nine copies of EAST FROM HERE were produced, one of her smallest limitations. 13.25'' x 10.5''. Original black goatskin-backed white linen boards. Original stiff paper dust jacket with color, embossed, suede, and metal clip elements, with cut-outs revealing the boards. Endpapers of hand-made blue paper. Illustrated with etchings, aquatints, collograph, drypoint, and other methods in color, gilt, and black and white. [50] leaves, [1] half-sheet, some with cut-outs. Signed by Allix to colophon and numbered 7 of 9 copies. In original blue cloth slipcase with paper labels to spine and front joint, lined with soft material and suede. Metal clips a touch tarnished, with a tiny area of rubbing to jacket. Bright and clean.
