ABOUT the PARTY: You are invited to the pre-publication party to preview the re-
creation of the1913 book, La Prose du Transsibérien, by poet Blaise Cendrars and
painter Sonia Delaunay, published in a new edition by Kitty Maryatt of Two Hands
Press. La Prose is considered to be one of the most remarkable artists’ books of the
twentieth century.

ABOUT the LECTURE and EXHIBITION: Kitty Maryatt will give a talk about her
extensive research on La Prose and will premiere a short video detailing the making
of this new edition. There will be a pop-up exhibition of several copies of the book in
both folded and scroll formats.

ABOUT the BOOK: The type was letterpress-printed by Richard Siebert with photo-
polymer plates, and the gouache imagery was hand-painted using the original 1913
pochoir techniques. Kitty Maryatt and her assistant Chris Yuengling-Niles have been
producing the pochoir under the supervision of Christine Menguy of Atelier Coloris
in Ploubazlanec, France and will complete the edition at Two Hands Press in Playa
Vista, California next year.

The size of the edition is 150 copies plus 30 hors commerce. The price is $2750 until
the publication date of January 1, 2018 after which time it will increase to $3500.
The book is made up of four 16 x 23 inch parent pages, which are cut to size after
printing and after application of the 100 pochoir stencils and extensive handwork.
The four pages are glued together, folded vertically and then accordion-folded into
sections. The finished book size when folded is 7 1/8 inches by 3 5/8 inches and is
housed in a painted vellum cover. When unfolded, the book is 14 1/4 inches wide x
6 ½ feet long. The book will be accompanied by a booklet containing a description of
the production processes and an English translation of the poem by Timothy Young
of Yale University.

ABOUT the LECTURER: Kitty Maryatt is Director Emerita of the Scripps College
Press and was also Assistant Professor of Art at Scripps College in Claremont,
California. She taught Typography and the Book Arts at Scripps for 30 years. She
recently received the Oscar Lewis Award for the Book Arts from the Book Club of
California.
