La Loïe Fuller, Pierre Roche, 1904
La Loïe Fuller by Pierre Roche was designed to celebrate the prima ballerina Loie Fuller. This book is also notable for its use of the rare “gypsograph” technique of printing, invented by Pierre Roche (1855-1922), a student of Rodin. The images have a three dimensional, sculptural quality. This volume includes 17 color gypsographic prints in the text, and two comprising the double page cover. This beautiful work is a milestone in the history of the illustrated book. The text is the first application of Auriol Italic, by renowned artist and designer Georges Auriol. A very fine example, complete with the original enclosure.
