Journeys to the Sun and Moon by Art Hazelwood
Art Hazelwood has created this series of prints based on the book Journeys to the Moon and Sun by Cyrano de Bergerac (1619-1655).
Cyrano was the true life inspiration for the romantic figure of Edmond de Rostand's nineteenth-century play. He was a satirist, swordsmen, poet, and philosopher who indeed had a prodigious appendage.This translation from the original French, based on the 1662 edition, was made by Timothy Hampton, Professor of French and Comparative Literature at the University of California, Berkeley.
The prints are color etchings with a linocut border. The text was printed letterpress within a linocut border. All the prints are on handmade paper made at Eastside Editions. The prints for this series were printed in an edition of twenty. Ten sets were bound as books, and ten were left loose in portfolio boxes.
The price for the book or the portfolio box is $5,500. The following individual prints are available separately for the price of $550- Dew Flight, In Canada, Fireworks, In Prison, The Measure of Man
