Book Description

Published by The Gogmagog Private Press in 1975. Twelve colour 'blocks designed, made and printed by the artist', each measuring 41.5cm x 29cm and numbered (number 8). Each titled, dated and signed by Morris Cox in pencil in the lower margin. Illustrated title page, with tissue guards which are all present. All loose as issued in the original morocco backed and decorated drop back box which has gilt titling and has been cork lined by Gemma O'Connor. The Prints and Box are in Fine condition. Although the edition size was only 20 sets, five sets were broken up and sold as separate prints. Two sets are held at the V& A museum ( 'To enjoy this brilliant work the prints should be side by side, spread across a table. Viewed thus one might suggest a large claim, as that they are among the very finest essays in colour printing produced during this century' (Chambers 26). A wonderful production from the Gogmagog Press and increasingly scarce to find as a complete set.
