(DINE, JIM). DINE, JIM & NEIL CURRY - THE BENDING OF THE BOW - WITH ONE SIGNED ETCHING, A LITHOGRAPH AND FOUR PHOTOGRAVURES BY JIM DINE

Title: THE BENDING OF THE BOW - WITH ONE SIGNED ETCHING, A LITHOGRAPH AND FOUR PHOTOGRAVURES BY JIM DINE
Description: London, Enitharmon Editions Ltd., 1993, First Edition 1/75 Deluxe. (ISBN: 1-870612-09-4) Cloth in Slipcase, 4to, 64pp, with an individual signed lithograph, a lithographic frontispiece and four photogravures bound into the book. Beautifully illustrated by Jim Dine, this is the deluxe edition of author Neil Curry's colloquial version of the closing books of Homer's Odyssey in which he has "scrubbed the story free from all its side-tracks and digressions so as to leave clear one thread of Odysseus's final journey: from the shores of Ithaca to the marriage-bed where he is finally reunited with Penelope". It is hand-printed in 14 point Monotype Baskerville on Canaletto 160gsm (fine) and bound and slipcased by The Fine Bindery. Jim Dine's signed original 12 x 9 " etching of "The Head of Homer" (contained loose in a wallet in the slipcase) was printed on 300gsm Hahnemuhle at the Spring Street Workshop in New York. The lithographic frontispiece and four photogravures bound into the book all reproduce drawings made by the artist in 1987-8 from Greek and Roman statuary at the Glyptotek in Munich, and were printed in London by Pauper's Press and Hope Sufferance Press. A brand new, pristine example of the deluxe edition limited to seventy-five copies SIGNED by the author, as issued.
