LIMITED EDITION, SIGNED BY SUTHERLAND. 2 volumes in buckram clamshell box. Both books measure 9 x 7 inches. Facsimile of Sutherland's sketchbook from June to July 1971. Printed in full colour using Pochoir to such a high quality that the printer, Daniel Jacomet, has put a small circular blind stamp on the corner of the 30 leaves to prevent them being mistaken for the originals. The sketchbook has full watercolour paintings and line drawings as well as Sutherland's written notes. Bound in black cloth spine and paper covered boards. To accompany the sketchbook is a grey paper covered, softbound catalogue of sketches and explanatory notes about the production of the facsimile, as well as a couple of letters written by the artist. From a total edition of 525 copies, this one is one of 35 standard A copies from the 50 A copies issued and is numbered and signed by Sutherland. The two volumes are housed in a beige buckram covered clamshell box with black lettering to the front board and spine. Fine books in a fine Solander box.
