(Northampton), (Gehenna Press), 1968. A scroll book by the noted sculptor, in the form of a 12' long handprinted color woodcut, carved from a single plank and printed on Japanese paper at Leonard Baskin's Gehenna Press. Commissioned in 1968, this is Copy number 1 of 75 copies, numbered and signed by the artist. A fanciful piece, "Some elephants they met and danced," is reminiscent of her stated sculptural theme, "the moving group."

The proof for this scroll book is in the collection of MOMA, NY. 12' x 11". Scarce: OCLC locates only one copy, in the Brooklyn Museum. Rolled; fine. [#014818] $1,500
