A few days ago, I posted pictures of equipment used at Arion Press to create their wonderful books. The pictures were taken at my visit to Arion Press in early September this year. This next installment looks at some of the artwork hanging on the walls at Arion. These pictures are mostly originals, done by artists they commission, for the illustrations of their books.
Probably my favorite part of the visit was meeting the artist William Wiley. Mr. Wiley has illustrated a number of Arion Press books, two of which, Don Quixote and The Voices of Marrakesh, I am lucky enough to own. Mr. Wiley was extremely gracious, very friendly and fun to talk with.
As you will see below, due to the lighting and time of day, along with the glass in front of the art, the pictures I took are less than stellar, many with unfortunate reflections. I am posting them anyway, hopefully they are good enough for you to get a feel for their wonderful quality and style.
