Published on the occasion of the exhibition held at the National Gallery of Art, November 18, 1984 - February 24, 1985. "Prints and edition sculpture have become a familiar and pleasurable element of modern culture, broadening the audience for art and challenging artists to experiment with both traditional and innovative techniques. At the heart of these works is the interaction of artists and craftsman, a fertile collaboration that is also at the heart of this lively and enlightening history of the Gemini G.E.L. workshop. With over 275 illustrations--124 in brilliant color of the highest accuracy--this volume chronicles the development of Gemini from its establishment in 1966 to its current status as one of the most renowned and inventive publishers of prints and sculpture."--front flap Table of Contents: Setting the Course: Early Prints and Sculpture-- The Shop Expands: New Artists / New Processes-- 'Round the Clock / 'Round the World: Robert Rauschenberg-- Line, Form, and Color: Ellsworth Kelly-- Artist and Model: David Hockney-- The Search for Subject: Jasper Johns-- Sounds and Silences: San Francis-- Transformation and Variation: Roy Lichtenstein-- The 1980s: Continuing Collaborations and Several New Faces.
