The Poems of W.B. Yeats.
DIEBENKORN, Richard. Poems of W.B. Yeats. Selected and introduced by Helen Vendler. xxv, , 171,  pp. 4to, 260 x 205 mm, bound in half red morocco over green cloth, in a green and red slipcase. San Francisco: The Arion Press, 1990.
Limited edition of 426 copies. Yeats's poems, printed with red titles and black Baskerville monotype, are paired with six of Diebenkorn's figurative etchings, the first book illustrations he has completed. Helen Vendler describes the synthesis of the two: "The Yeatsian metamorphoses of the coat of the body and the coat of its art are re-embodied in Richard Diebenkorn's etchings here, in which the coat changes from a real garment to a metaphysical form." As new.
