Grolier Club invitation.
Designed and illustrated by Leonard Baskin. The Gehenna Press, 1992. 5 1/4 x 7 7/8 inches, 1 leaf, 500 copies. Printed letterpress by Art Larson.

“This invitation was for the opening of the exhibition The Gehenna Press: The Work of Fifty Years, 1942–1992. The type was hand-set Centaur and Arrighi, and the images were printed from blocks and plates. The four-forme run of 500 was printed by hand on the Vandercook No.4 in the days before the Heidelberg platen press was acquired.” —AL
