Signed book, First edition

Pablo PICASSO ...Autre chose que de l'enfant beau


Antonin ARTAUD

...Autre chose que de l'enfant beau

Louis Broder, Paris 1957, 13,5x16,5cm, relié sous chemise et étui.

... Autre chose que de l'enfant beau [...Something Other than a Beautiful Child]

Louis Broder | Paris 1957 | 13.5 x 16.5 cm | full box in custom chemise and slipcase
First edition printed in 120 numbered copies on Japan paper, ours is one of 100 copies numbered in Arabic numerals.
Illustrated with an original drypoint in colour by Pablo Picasso, printed in Georges Leblanc's workshops in Paris.
Handwritten signature of Pablo Picasso on the print details page.
Binding in full grey box, title and names of the author and illustrator gold-stamped on the spine, boards decorated with an abstract and geometric decoration of gilt and black fillets, mouse grey box endpapers, covers and spine preserved, top edge gilt, chemise in half mouse grey box, marbled paper boards, slipcase edged in mouse grey box, marbled paper boards, contemporary binding signed Desmules.
Using a process used the previous year for the illustration of Autre chose by P.A. Benoit, the artist pierced the black mold, giving the appearance of an empty circle in the engraving. This circle, not pressed by the plate, forms a white half-sphere in relief, a unique and empty eye of a dis-membered character, very surely inspired by one of Artaud's great drawings from 1946, «L'Homme et sa douleur,» preserved at the Cantini museum in Marseille.
Rare and very beautiful copy, perfectly set in a decorative binding, comprising the only intaglio produced in colour by Picasso to illustrate the book.
