Penultimate ... No Trespassing ... over and over again by Val Tillery (Artist's Book Series XXV)


By 1994 I had started to slow down my artist's book purchases. I only had one purchase in 1994 and then, in November of 1995 I made a trip to Bookworks and found No Trespassing by Val Tillery. The vibrant colors struck me as well as the intricate design in such a small size. The item was a bit pricey by my usual standards, but I went ahead and bought it ... it would be my last purchase for quite a while ...

Val Tillery

Synopsis: No Trespassing. The bright reproductions in this book resemble woodcuts and are printed on uncut, perforated pages; they speak of human isolation, a mythic creature, and destructive impulses in a folk art style.
