1932 Gustave Baumann Woodcut Print Colophon XII Eagle Ceremony at Tesuque Pueblo

This listing is for a rare copy of The Colophon Book Collector's Quarterly, issue XII. This particular book was printed in 1932 and includes the Gustave Baumann woodcut print titled "Eagle Ceremony at Tesuque Pueblo". The woodcut was printed in three colors; black, gray and ochre. It is signed with the Baumann hand-in-heart chop in the lower left corner of the block. The image size is 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" inches. The print is in excellent condition on a clean page. This publication was available only by subscription, and the issue with this Baumann print is one of the most collectible. The book itself is in very good overall condition with some wear and discoloration to the cover and foxing on some pages. Please see the detailed photos below and contact us with any questions before bidding. We have a low opening bid and no reserve price so don't miss your chance to add this to your collection!

The quarterly publication Colophon was published between 1929 and 1950 as a way to showcase the wide array of various printing techniques common and uncommon to the trade. Each publication provided both historical and contemporary examples of printing techniques, type-faces, papers and graphic artwork. The work of a contemporary artist was featured in each issue. Each book had a subscription limited to 3000 copies.

Gustave Baumann (1881-1971) was born in Germany and came to the US with his family when he was ten. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and returned to Germany in 1904 to study wood carving and the techniques of making wood block prints. In 1918 he came to New Mexico and remained there for the next 50 years, becoming an important part of the New Mexico art scene. His work focused on the beauty and uniqueness of the Southwestern landscapes and people.
