Paris Diary 1932-1933

North Hill PA: Bird and Bull Press, 1982. Hardcover. Number 311 of 350 copies. Edward Gordon Craig (1872-1966) was the son of famed actress Ellen Terry and stage designer Edward William Godwin. Gordon in turn became a well known actor, director, and stage designer. Early in his career as an actor, he also became interested in graphic design and wood cuts, studying under well-known artists of the day. This diary, written when he was sixty, recounts a difficult period in Craig's life, when he was experiencing health and money worries. As Franklin notes in his prologue, this was a low period for Craig and was also for Europe, as Hitler was rising in power. The text was composed in Baskerville types and printed on mouldmade Bugrbotton paper and bound in brown quarter leather by Gray Parrot. Red leather spine label with title, and boards in yellow and white striped paper. In fine condition. 154 pages. PRI/070711. Fine.
