Paul Landacre
“many of Landacre’s linoleum cuts and wood engravings were inspired by the American Far West, including the hills and mountains of Big Sur, Palm Springs, Monterey, and Berkeley. “California Hills and Other Wood Engravings by Paul Landacre” (Los Angeles: Bruce McCallister, 1931), a limited-edition folio comprising 15 of Landacre’s early works printed from the original blocks, was awarded recognition as one of the “Fifty Books of the Year” for 1931. In rapid succession, three books featuring his wood engraved designs also garnered such recognition: “The Boar and the Shibboleth” (1933), “A Gil Blas in California” (1933), and “XV Poems for the Heath Broom” (1934). In the 1950s, the AIGA recognized “A Natural History of Western Trees” (1953) and “Books West Southwest, Essays on Writers, Their Books and Their Land” (1957) as “Fifty Books of the Year”, and they became the fifth and sixth books with Landacre designs to win the prestigious award. For “Trees” Landacre contributed more than 200 ink drawings on scratchboard.”

Framed in wood black frame, standard to the period. I have not taken the piece out of the frame.
