Large Format 4to. 159pp. Profusely illustrated with the Woodcuts, graphic arts, illustrations, portraits, posters, and box art of Antonio Frasconi, many if not most in Color. Introduction by Nat Hentoff. Apreciation by Charles Parkhurst. Trade Paperback. Antonio Frasconi presents varied artwork: prints, literary illustrations, porfolios, portraits, lettering, posters, and box art. Mostly, the book includes woodcuts, some presented in black-and-white and some in color, with many in full-page--though some in reduced form. There's even a fold-out, "To Brooklyn Bridge." The subtitle AGAINST THE GRAIN, as discussed in the book's introduction, reveals something about Frasconi's views on art, namely, that a real artist must go "against the grain" and reveal the obscured truths we all need to see in order to better ourselves. Overall, the sampling is generous, interesting, and beautiful.
