Description: Wednesday, 22 March 2006 HERE IS ANOTHER EXCEPTIONAL CATALOG FROM THE RED LANTERN SHOP. THERE IS ONE THING ABOUT ALL THESE RED LANTERN CATALOGS, THEY WERE NOT PRINTED IN THE THOUSANDS. THEY ONLY PRINTED THEM FOR THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE THEY THOUGHT WOULD ATTEND THE EXHIBITION. (USUALLY 100'S) THIS MAKES THEM RARE REFERENCE CATALOGS, AS WELL AS RARE TIPPED IN PRINTS. THE RED LANTERN SHOP REPRESENTED JAPANESE ARTISTS, AND MAY STILL DO SO. THIS IS A 1969 WINTER CATALOG WITH ONLY 20 PAGES. THE CATALOG HAS 20 TIPPED IN COLOR PRINTS OR COLOR PHOTOS, THE OTHER 55 ARE BLACK & WHITE PAGE PHOTOS. 19 OF THE COLOR PRINTS IN THIS CATALOG ARE 3 1/2" INCH AND UP, TO 4 1/2", EXCEPT FOR ONE, IT IS 2 1/2" INCHES LONG, AND 1 7/8" INCH WIDE. THEY COULD BE USED IN SMALL FRAMES, OR LEFT IN THE BOOK FOR REFERENCE. MOST OF THE ARTISTS IN THIS CATALOG ARE FAMOUS TODAY, WHERE-AS SOME WERE ALREADY FAMOUS. THE ARTISTS NAMES ARE NEXT TO THE TIPPED IN COLOR PRINTS IN THE PICTURES BELOW. THE CATALOG WAS USED AND READ, BUT NOT ABUSED. THIS ONE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THERE IS ALSO A 1968 PRICE LIST FOR ALL 75 ART WORKS THAT ARE SHOWN IN THIS CATALOG. THIS IS A GREAT REFERENCE FOR JAPANESE CONTEMPORARY PRINTS.
