Collection of Solarized Film Sheets Used in the Printing of The Baby Book and Power Plant Poems

Np: nd. A collection of 37 sheets made to print two very early books by Joe Brainard, the Baby Book - published by his own Boke Press - and Power Plant Poems, a collaboration between Elmslie and Brainard which was published by C Press. Both of these books were printed in small editions on a small offset printer. The films were made by photographing the original artwork, and were then used as negatives to produce the final book. Many have small daubs of red paint used to cover up specks or irregularities in order to make the print more even - the artifacts of the process of small scale offset printing, which was an important printing technology for small press art books at the time.
