This book features a single poem by the important and highly-regarded poet William Carlos Williams and seven color intaglio prints by the highly influential painter Helen Frankenthaler. Like many of Frankenthaler’s graphic works, this portfolio was printed by Tyler Graphics. Her lyrical compositions, filled with her signature soft washes of color, complement Williams’ St. Valentine with images on the theme of love.

Williams’ poem is printed through lithography on a folio of TGL white handmade paper. The folio encloses Frankenthaler’s loose prints and features an additional intaglio print by the artist on its cover. Frankenthaler’s individual intaglios are printed on HMP linen-textured white handmade paper. The Tyler Graphics logo is blind embossed into the paper at the lower right of each plate. The poem and prints are housed in a maroon cloth-covered clamshell box with gold stamping on the spine and front cover.

This copy is numbered 25 out of a small edition of 35 with an additional 19 copies for proofs and the printer’s archives. It is signed and dated by Frankenthaler on the folio.
