Northampton MA: Cheloniidae Press, 1978. State Proof. One of only a few copies printed for Robinson's Masters Thesis Show in 1978. With title, state proof, and signature in pencil on the lower margin. This striking black and white print of Robinson in turtle armor and with an image of a turtle and its skeleton next to him anticipates his founding of the Cheloniidae Press the following year. Cheloniidae is the name given to a family of Sea Turtle species. Robinson is shown in profile up to his shoulders and his turtle armor on his head and body given him the air of a Renaissance man. The turtle images are meticulously and realistically depicted. Image is 17.5 x 23 inches on heavy paper measuring 21 x 27 inches. In fine condition. ORIGART/073117. Fine.
