Au Soleil du Plafond
Not on view
This book was originally planned by L. Rosenberg ca. 1916-1917. Gris died in 1927, having finished only half of the intended illustrations. The project was taken up by Ténade some thirty years later, with the collaboration of the author (Reverdy). Although published in 1955, it it generally accepted as one of the greatest Cubist "livres d'artiste."
Both the "illustrations" and the handwritten text are printed via lithography. The text is printed in black and the eleven illustrations in color, on colored grounds. Unbound sheets in slipcase.
Collation: half title page, blank page, title page, blank page, introduction, blank page, colophon, blank page,  - 152, blank.
