illustrated books in limited editions

“A truly illustrated book is not a set of images scattered throughout the text like flowers set down at a graveside or rubble along a length of a palisade. On the contrary, it is a passion which bursts into flame and forms between a writer and an artist. It's the story of a love affair, the conspiracy of passion, between two minds....
"Saura belongs to that generation of smouldering fire which has stirred the embers into producing a giant flame. This major creative talent, modest, in the guise of an hidalgo and cutting a delicate and serious figure, is one of the most corrosive and most inventive artists of the new ‘Spanish School'. His works as a painter and engraver are simultaneously violent and generous, ironic and lyrical, inspired and sarcastic. He opens up to fury the idle pace of patience, and offers up the insolent charms of parody for due recognition. He pours into the milk of human kindness that ink of black humour into which Goya dipped his pen.”

Claude ROY
