Library Journal - Library Journal
Issued to commemorate the acquisition by the Walker Art Gallery of the archives of Tyler Graphics, these publications are a tribute to Kenneth Tyler's extraordinary contribution to the art of the print. They record imagination and creativity, ingenuity and cooperation between the printer and the artists who used his innovative printmaking facilities. Tyler Graphics: the extended image , a series of essays, includes details of Tyler's career as participant and collaborator and excellent studies of the artists with whom he has worked to explore and extend the limits of printmaking. The diversity of style, from geometric abstraction to pop art, Kelly to Frankenthaler, is meticulously documented in the catalogue raisonne, which records in splendid color and technical detail every stage of the works. It thus goes beyond the standard catalogue raisonne to involve the reader in the creative process. Published with Tyler's involvement and supervision, both publications chronicle and embody a master's skill. Paula Frosch, Metropolitan Museum Lib., New York
