About This Item

New York: Whitney Museum, 1990. Published by the Library Fellows of the Whitney Museum of Art. First in the series "Artists and Writers: American Journals", organized by May Castleberry. Printed by Stamperia Valdonega in Verona under the supervision of Martino Mardersteig. Folio, black morocco spine, gilt-lettered and yellow linen boards. Fine. A very amusing collaboration and a handsome production. Two color woodcuts , one of which is initialled by Steinberg, hand-painted by Michael Berdan, and 16 tipped-in offset lithographs. They depict the traffic, architecture and noise of Canal Street, which was Frazier's neighborhood in New York for twelve years. Canal Street leads to the Holland Tunnel, the first Hudson River vehicular tunnel, of which Frazier describes the building history. Canal Street is a vivid hodgepodge of architecture and shops, both open air and enclosed, selling everything from designer knock-offs to fruit and vegetables, and an amazing array of hardware and auto parts.. Black Morocco and Yellow Linen. Fine. Illus. by Saul Steinberg. Folio.
