Judith Mason; Artist Book: A Dante Bestiary
Recent ONLINE-ONLY Auction

 

Judith Mason selected stanzas from Dante’s famous Divine Comedy for her artist’s book, A Dante Bestiary which she then illustrated with her phenomenally fine drawings of animals, real and fantastical, from the Comedy. The book, printed in letter press and with photolithographic illustrations, is bound in leather and in slipcase. On the right, is a single signed sheet from the book which is from an extant unbound copy. In her essay in the book, Mason cites Claude Levi-Strauss who famously said animals are not only good to eat, they are also useful to think with. The book and the sheet are Mason’s thoughts, in other words.
