      HUTCHINS, EDWARD. Exhibit A: The Rabbit Report. A silk-screened parchment scroll that unwinds and retracts from the torso of a painted papier-mâché rabbit, which tells the tale of a city invaded by rabbits. Approximately 6 inches high, 5 inches wide. Chatham, NY: Editions, [1989]
      Estimate $400-600

      number 13 of only 20 copies. "These papier-mâché rabbits, each containing a screen-printed scroll, eschewed conventions of fine binding and printmaking at a time when editioned artists' books were largely produced within the province of craft and industrial processes (evolving from private press tradition or commercial offset printing technologies). Hutchins exploration of alternative methods of reproduction . . . including rubberstamping, photocopying, simple relief printing and silkscreen . . . have continued to combine with the playful sensibility and structural variability that define his work"--Minnesota Center for the Book Arts catalog, 2003.
