Description

An early progenitor of the artist’s book genre, Warja Honegger-Lavater was born in Winterthur, Switzerland in 1913. She worked as an illustrator for the magazine Jeunesse from 1944-1958, and moved to New York shortly thereafter where she began a wonderful series of artist’s books.

These books were published between 1962 and 1971, an exceptionally ripe time for artists to turn to the bookform, a time when the most often cited “first” artist’s book also appeared, Twentysix Gasoline Stations (1962) by Ed Ruscha.
