Re: [BKARTS] John DePol



In addition to Five Decades of the Burin: The Wood Engravings of John
DePol, and John DePol, A Catalogue Raisonne of His Graphic Work,
1935-1998, members of the list should also be aware of John DePol: a
celebration of his work, by many hands. (Council Bluffs: Yellow Barn,
1994), a festschrift for John made by many of the printers for whom he
created wood engravings. This is a difficult book to find, as there are
only 150 copies, 60 of which went to the contributors.

 

According to WorldCat, Copies are held at these libraries:

As both a printer & a librarian, I was very fortunate to have many
pleasant phone calls, and a few meetings, with John from about 1989 to
about a month ago. In that first phone call, John offered to make a
large engraving & two pressmarks for a book I was working on-for free.
Later, he gave a set of engraving tools & a few blocks to a friend of
mine who had expressed an interest in learning to make wood engravings.
That's just the way he was, and I'll miss him an awful lot.

 

By the way, if you're searching for John on the web, be sure search
under the misspelling "De Pol" as well as "DePol." There's a lot listed
that way, too.
