Published on the occasion of the landmark exhibition of the same name held at the Musee du dessin et de l'Estampe Originale Gravelines, France from June 27 through October 17, 2010. Presents David Lynch's astonishing achievement as a draftsman/printmaker. "The workshop of Item Editions is sequestered in a courtyard off the Montparnasse in Paris, where artists from all over the world have lithographs made on Solnhofener stones. Here, with the help of the historic presses that have printed masterworks by such artists as Picasso, Matisse, and Miro, a durable artistic tradition continues today. Filmmaker, photographer, painter, and now, printmaker David Lynch was captivated by the place and its history when he first chanced upon it in 2007 ('I fell in love'). Since his earliest experiments with zinc plates, Lynch has continued to labor away at Item Editions, producing large black-and-white lithographs by drawing directly onto the stone (rather than using the medium to create multiples), experimenting with textures to draw figurative imagery out of abstract patterns, and adding captions to further elucidate their themes. The content of these lithographs clusters around themes familiar to Lynch fans: Love, eroticism, dreams, and death" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for David Lynch collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A very scarce copy thus. 250 plates. One of the greatest living American writer/filmmaker/artists. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER DAVID LYNCH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 377572673X. $90.00
