Scope and Contents note

R.O.W., a consideration of the right of way rules for sailing vessels, has been made as a limited edition artists' book in 2006. The central image in the book is a three foot square relief print which was created as part of a program at the San Francisco Center for the Book. It was originally printed in 2005 by a steamroller at Carolina and 16th Streets, San Francisco. Kay Bradner and Charles Hobson collaborated on the design of the print. Kay Bradner cut the linoleum block and printed the relief prints on Rives BFK 300 gm paper.

Series XXIV. A Supper in Montmartre, 1985

Scope and Contents note

A Supper in Montmartre was printed in a seminar class at UC Berkeley taught in the Bancroft Library's rare book. Five students printed this small single signature book on an 1857 Albion hand press.
The text is a memoir by Harriet Lane Levy recounting the legendary dinner party given by Picasso for the artist Henri Rousseau in 1908. Part of the story involved the inebriated and frantic departure of the poet André Salmon, who had been Harriet's dinner partner. Intoxicated by her conversation and charm, as well as good French wine, he left the table in disarray and on his way out chewed off the roses on the stylish turban she'd worn that had been left outside the dining room door. The etching of an imagined turban and roses on an antique hat rack is the first illustration by Charles Hobson for a limited edition book.
Box 27, Folder 3

Etching proofs-preparatory and final versions, six pencil drawings, one proof from plate #1, and six proofs from plate #2.
