Krcma, Ed - Rauschenberg / Dante : Drawing a Modern Inferno
A presumed US first edition, first impression - presumed because the book is still in its original shrink-wrap.
Dante's Inferno inspired Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) to create a series of 34 drawings that comprise one of the most remarkable creative enterprises of 20th-century American art. Completed between 1958 and 1960, XXXIV Drawings for Dante's Inferno introduced an innovative transfer process to the artist's tradition of combining found objects and photographic imagery from newspapers and other popular sources.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is very bright, is unfaded, and is complete. It is unclipped. Looks very sharp.
Book : The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The laminated boards are clean and unfaded, the corners sharp. The pages and the closed page edges are clean. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. No remainder marks. A handsome copy.
