Nicos Nicolaides

Nicos Nicolaides’ work is original and valuable. For his last book, a satire with a particularly mocking mood,The Book of the Monk, he creates an artist’s book: being the author and the artist, he lithographs the totality of his work: the front and back cover, the title page, the text, the decorations and the colophon; even the text itself is stone lithographed. It was first published in autumn 1951 in 150 numbered copies at “Société L’Art Graphique” in Cairo (softcover book, with pages of irregular shape). The copy of Hambis Printmaking Museum is one of 500 copies which form the second edition, in 1955, similar to the first one, other than the end of the colophon.
