KELLY, Ellsworth. Un Coup de dés jamais n'abolira le hasard. By Stéphane Mallarmé. 54 ff. Illustrated with 11 lithographs, in black, on ivory wove Rives BKF paper, by Kelly. Folio, 394 x 315 mm, bound in original black morocco, in black solander box. New York: Limited Editions Club, 1992.
Kelly's first illustrated book, limited to 300 copies, signed by the artist. "Well known as a painter of flat, shaped, bright-colored, or black-and-white canvases, Kelly has also consistently made linear drawings of plants and flowers. In his prints the white paper is the equivalent of a surrounding wall for the single form printed on it. For his first book he has entirely isolated his black forms from the famous, typographically innovative texts [by Stéphane Mallarmé]" (Century of Artists Books, p. 202). A fine copy.
