The peak of Cox's achievement as a printer. (1965 - 1966)

COX, Morris.

The Seasons, A Landscape Panorama: An Impression of Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.

Published: London, The Gogmagog Press.

Date: 1965 - 1966

Four volumes. Limited editions each one of 100 copies signed by the artist; 8vo; original boards with monotype printed in colours and transparent dust jackets. Printed in various colours on folding Japanese hand-made paper forming one long panorama. The four seasons are considered to be the peak of Cox's achievement as a printer. Chamber's, Franklin and Tucker in their survey of his work state that 'since Rossetti there has been no artist who could so stray between visual and written work, using either at random to say what he sees'. Each of the four books start with a short poem, the rest is all colour printing. All the volumes include the original prospectus. Fine.
