GREAT COMPOSERS FROM 12 WOOD ENGRAVINGS BY PAUL LANDACRE.

Los Angeles, CA: Invierno Press, 1979. First edition, limited issue. From an edition of 350 copies, of which 299 were for sale. SIGNED BY RITCHIE. This copy is out of the series. The 7.5 x 10 inch folder contains 12 illustrations printed by Lynton R. Kistler from woodcut plates by Landacre.

The 12 composers are Beethoven, Wagner, Debussy, Franck, Tschaikovsky, Bach, Brahms, Mozart, Schubert, Verdi, Stravinsky and Sibelius. The pamphlet's artwork came into being in the 1930's as an advertising effort by the classical music station KECA as a means of building a bigger audience. The edition is SIGNED ON THE PAMPHLET by Ward Ritchie, the lithographer Lynton R. Kistler, and Carl Haverlin, the owner of Invierno Press, who, in the 1930's, was KECA's commercial manager.
