About

BOURGEOIS, Louise. Homely Girl, A Life. By Arthur Miller. With 10 drypoints by Bourgeois. Two volumes. Folio, original beige half morocco over grey cloth, preserved in a grey cloth slipcase. New York: Peter Blum, 1992. A fine copy of this highly effective example of contemporary bookmaking. The playwright Arthur Miller gave Louise Bourgeois an unpublished story for which she provided two sets of illustrations. The publisher issued both, hence the two volumes, one containing original drypoints, and the other a series of offsets from colour photographs. The publisher also issued two versions. The one most commonly encountered consisted of an edition of 1200 copies with reproductions of the etchings. The limited edition, of which this is one, illustrated with original drypoints, is extremely scarce. One of an edition of 100 copies with the colophon signed by Miller and Bourgeois.
