L'Issue : Six gravures originales de Arikha

Paris: Georges Visat, 1968. Arikha, Avigdor (1929-2010). First edition. Wrappers, in publisher's chemise and slipcase. One of 154 copies on Rives (total edition). Illustrated with six colored etchings by Avigdor Arikha, each signed. Fine. "The colored etchings for L'Issue reveal the subtle and intuitive feeling with which Arikha approaches Beckett's work," Mitchell, Beyond Illustration: The Livre d'Artist in the Twentieth Century, 53; "The etchings and aquatints in this volume are in Arikha's earlier abstract style. Dark and moody in feeling, they are reminiscent of Abstract Expressionism and visually convey the somber outlook of Beckett's literary vision," Johnson, Artists' Books in the Modern Era 1870-2000, 160.
