FIRST EDITION. Inscribed by the author on the title-page. "Prior to 1966, if artists wanted to create works larger than their studios or metalworking abilities allowed, they had to turn to industrial manufacturers, usually steel fabricators or boat builders, who, not surprisingly, were often unable toaccommodate the creative process of making art. The opening that spring of Lippincott, Inc. changed that and the direction of American art in the process. Functioning as an extension of the artists' studios, Lippincott, Inc. was also a new kind of all-in-one sculpture production center that put the tools of industrial fabrication in the hands of artists, allowing them to produce at a scale they had previously only dreamt of on paper. Over the years of the shop's operation from 1966 to 1994, Lippincott, Inc. has produced sculptures by nearly one hundred artists" (the publisher).
