About This Item

Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall. Softcover. Orange wraps with block print and title on front wrap. Unpaginated. Printed by Bryant Press, copyrighted to 1932. Wraps have moderate creasing and light soiling. Minor tearing around staple binding. Minor dampstaining along the bottom edge of the text block (affecting about 1" of margin, does not affect printed content). Minor offsetting from tipped-in block print. Overall very good. Linoleum block prints depicting scenes of Los Angeles by Stella Knight Ruess, an accomplished writer and artist and mother of Everett Ruess. Stella Knight Ruess popularized the haiku format in southern California and inspired her son's block prints. This beautiful book includes one color block print tipped in, titled "Olive Hill." A rare find with no copies found in commerce as of April 2023. .
