Jan Yoors Tapestries
6 Jan Yoors Tapestries
New York, NY Jan Yoors Studio 1981 Presumed First Edition Unbound Very Good Ex-Library 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Yoors, Jan 
A catalogue of art works created in the last years of the artist's life and assembled as a tribute after his death. Undated but presumed 1981. The publication's copyright date is 1981. Moreover, a heavy glassine insert, perhaps unique to this copy, states, in a neat ink hand, "With all our good wishes for Christmas [1981] and for all of 1982." Presumed printed in the USA. Technically ex library but with almost no ex-library marks. The glassine insert has a "received" stamp in light ink dated December 30, 1981, and there is also a discreet library stamp on the reverse blank side of the first sheet of illustrations. We can find no other markings, ex library or otherwise. Plain beige paper wrappers, lettered in black on both sides. The wrappers with repairs in clear tape to the spine. Oblong, 8.25 x 11.5 inches, unfolded. Reproduced here are lithograph cartoons of actual tapestries created and woven by the artist. With 13 sheets of heavy matte paper in the form of broadsides, i.e., with printing on one side only, the sheets measuring 8.25 x 23 inches unfolded. The first double-sheet is a B&W key to the 19 tapestry cartoons featured in this publication. The remaining twelve double-sheets with large-format reproductions of all 19 cartoons in vivid color. Apart from the two ex-library marks noted and the amateur tape repairs to the wrapper this is an exceptionally clean copy. A Very Good copy. Scarce in any condition. The following is excerpted from the wrapper notes: "Jan Yoors [1922-1977] was a writer, photographer and sculptor, as well as a tapestry artist. He was his own designer, he made his own cartoons, and he was his own artisan in his own studio. At the time of his death Yoors left behind a number of working cartoons which he had yet to translate into tapestries. After his death his wife continued to execute these working cartoons."
