ZIMMERMAN, I.J. Adventurous Hobby: Achievements in Lino-cutting and Printing.
Pittstown, NJ: Long Book Press, 1960. Quarto (9.5" x 8.25"). Signed with inscription by the author on flyleaf. Numbered 6 of a Special Limited Edition of 40 copies. Decorative quarter cloth and paper boards with title card; 62pp. Hand-set with engravings and text printed in color on Ticonderoga paper with lino-block and handpress. Title card coming free from glue but holding at right edge. Covers show some fading toward spine with a bit of smudging on title card, otherwise just some light rubbing/bumping along edges and corners. Offsetting (likely unavoidable) throughout book, but images are still clear and impressive with bright colors. Binding is sound and pages are unmarked. Scarce.
A collection of hand-colored linoleum-block engravings representing a portion of Zimmerman's work over three years.
I know of no better and rewarding adventure than to prepare a copy of art or writing, and then to multiply it many times, with fidelity and exactitude; and to wait with impatient eagerness to see it in print, and drink with joy at the consummation of this stimulating and most absorbing effort. Hail, Adventurous Hobby!
