About This Item

Folio. Paris: The Trianon Press, 1967. Folio, (23) ff. Full green crushed morocco over boards. 8 full-page original color lithographs by Shahn, as well as an original print signed and numbered by Shahn. Fine in a slipcase. § Limited to 200 copies on Arches rag paper this being numbered XIII. Numbers I through XIV are designated “hors commerce” on the colophon page. Ben Shahn (1898-1969) enjoyed a long career as a social realist artist and left wing visionary, widely recognized for his murals, paintings, commercial illustrations and photography. His rendition of the Book of Ecclesiastics was a deeply personal undertaking; the beautifully embellished calligraphic text in English and Hebrew is also his work and like the illustrations was reproduced by the Trianon Press by a mixture of collotype and hand-stenciling.
