Jerome, Arizona: M. Kimberly Press, 1995.
First edition and only edition. A truly unique and hand-made artist's book, signed by Mare Blocker. Four panels bound in accordion-style, with original artwork on six sides created with ink and gouache, with four contiguous sides showing a lively bar scene inhabited by anthropomorphic creatures. Housed in a black cloth-covered folding case with vivid titles on the front panel. According to Blocker, this work is a cross between her days of owning a biker bar and her Lutheran upbringing. Fine. A charming and one of a kind book by the Seattle native, published on her own M. Kimberly Press. A prolific artist, Blocker has been making books since the late '70s, and has collaborated with the beloved late Portland author Katherine Dunn on several projects. Item #140937801
