DATE: Friday, November 3, 2017

TIME: 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

LOCATION: San Francisco Center for the Book, 375 Rhode Island Street, San Francisco, CA

TICKETS: Admission is free! RSVP to the SF Center for the Book  (415) 565-0545

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.
