There’s a chance rare on the East Coast to see an exhibition of work printed in San Francisco decades ago by Holbrook Teter and Michael Myers (whose linocuts, see above, have a line I still miss). A great deal of their production was topical, fast, and ephemeral: and shows what can be done by bright, talented and aware people with very little money. I recommend it (and admit my personal involvement during a few years of the press’ existence). Details from Hermitage.


Asa Benveniste: sunset to sunrise

Filed under: — site admin @ 11:00 am

I was looking through some old books of Ben’s, and this was inside one: a poem of Asa’s from 1980 that I printed as an Infolio supplement when he died. Next year will be twenty years since his death… strange to think of a whole new generation since that time (which seems still so recent). He was on my mind as I looked up through the window from making coffee.

Two screens worth taking the feed from are Beyond The Pale and A Compulsive Reader: both demonstrate a love of reading and writing without the sound of axes being ground into jargon-shards.

Our uncle, Morton Wynne Edwards, died in the early hours of this morning. Here he is at the time he was on the first convoy to get through the u-boats and ice to Russia during the Second World War (hence no ship’s name on the cap-band). A few years ago, he and the few remaining others received awards from the Soviet Government. I’m happy to have known him and he leaves only pleasant memories.
Morton Wynne Edwards, born 25th September 1920 died 7th March 2009
