Exhibition: William Benton presented by Marfa Book Co.
March 8, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Marfa Book Co. is presenting a small exhibition of paintings and hand-made illustrated books by William Benton, author of the books “Madly”, “Eye Contact,” and “Backlit” among many others. The books are small, generally consisting of 20 or so pages, and have a ton of charm and no fussiness. The books range widely in theme and subject, from a reprinting of the 18th-century poem, My Cat Joeffry, featuring new illustrations which Benton made to accompany the poem, to a sweet tale about a caterpillar’s transformation which Benton wrote himself, called “Fatterpillar”, again with Benton’s illustrations. The books, which are signed and numbered, will be on view in our vitrine, with framed paintings above.
