Library of Congress

I am proud to announce that the Rare Books and Special Collections Division of the Library of Congress has purchased one of the 18 copies of The Amichai Windows. It still needs to be catalogued but will be available to the public soon.

Pictured here is Mark Dimunation, the chief of the collection, with an open enclosure of our artist book in front of him. He’s holding up a copy of The Magic of Bookmaking, a book that my brother Bruce Black made for me.

The book documents a day in photos of my printing in the letterpress shop at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center in Maryland. You can take a look at a video of it here.
