Founded in 1977 by entrepreneur and master printer Steven M. Anderson, Vermillion Editions Limited was a nationally recognized print workshop in the Minneapolis warehouse district and an important part of the 1970s American print renaissance. Anderson collaborated with highly regarded artists of the time, including Jasper Johns, Chuck Close, and Andy Warhol. Lavishly illustrated with prints from renowned Vermillion Editions, this book features photographs of the finished products and documents the process of fine printmaking. Essays describe the history of the printmaking shop and the place of Vermillion Editions within the broader context of American printmaking. This catalogue provides a beautiful and enlightening look at an exceptionally talented printmaker and his inspired work with the heavy hitters of contemporary art in the 1970s. Dennis Michael Jon is associate curator of prints and drawings at The Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Distributed for The Minneapolis Institute of Arts
