KENT, ROCKWELL
ROCKWELL KENT A group of 3 letters from the American writer, artist, illustrator and printmaker on his red woodcut Rockwell Kent stationery. Written to a client: November 28, 1961: "I am convinced from what you have written me that drawing No. 5 is the one that should be made your bookplate…But, if you don't mind, I think I will put it more decidedly in the category of mythology by divesting it, of the last vestige of present day reality---his pants---" January 22, 1962: "At last-thanks in large part to the abominable weather-I am sending you the finished drawing…the black in the drawing will appear as white in the finished plate." "You have been a most indulgent client, and I am most appreciative of your tolerance of my procrastination." April 14, 1962: "I have just received some specimens of the finished bookplates from the printer, together with his bill, made out to you…I am sure that, since you liked the drawing and the proofs you will be delighted with the finished product. It is beautifully done." Accompanying the letters are the bookplate in question, 5 of them, in two different sizes. Also included, a limited edition of the American Society of Bookplate Collectors and Designer: Bicentennial Year Book 1976 featuring some inlaid bookplates including the one by Kent as well as printed copies of earlier correspondence between the client and Kent.

KENT, ROCKWELL
ROCKWELL KENT An informative letter, on the American writer, artist, illustrator and printmaker's red woodcut Rockwell Kent stationery, signed Ausable Forks, New York, November 28, 1961. To a client, "When the drawings and your letter came I cried out inwardly 'Thank God' for not getting an acknowledgement of them I had begun to fear that you were ill, or worse." "I am convinced from what you have written me that drawing No. 5 is the one that should be made your bookplate. But, if you don't mind, I think I will put it more decidedly in the category of mythology by divesting it, or him, of the last vestige of present day reality-his pants---and make him, if you please, Apollo. A baton is actually more appropriate to Apollo than the traditional lyre." "I will get at the bookplate soon, I hope, send you the finished drawing and then, when you return it, either send it to my engraver in the East or to one of your fine California printers, like Ward Ritchie…" With an example of the finished engraved bookplate: pants on, lyre out. The two: [ref:5817]
