(25.5 cm), 61 (1) pp. Publisher’s printed wrappers. - “Catalogue discusses aesthetic roles played by the papers used for fine prints, both separate prints and book illustrations, throughout the history of western printmaking, 15th-20th cs. Primary sections consider surface qualities of different papers, color variations of papers, and factors of size, especially in the size of blank paper or margins beyond the image. Throughout is an attempt to correlate the aesthetic effects of paper with their underlying technical causes or means, leading to newly proposed distinctions and dates” (author’s abstract). 148 works shown. ¶ Few light marks on wrappers.
