Gaylord Schanilec
 – poet, author, lecturer, printer & illustrator -30 years of achievement
After more than 20 years in promoting the Book Arts – especially fine printing and artist’s books, we have by way of our catalogues paid homage to printers and artists who we feel have made a serious and notable contribution to theart of the book.Preceding this homage to Gaylord Schanilec, whom we honor in this catalogue, we have over the years noted the work of master printer Antonio Frasconi (on his 75th birthday) – [Winter 1994 catalogue]; Claire Van Vliet – after 40 years of publication of artists’ books under the imprint of the Janus Press - [Spring 1995 catalogue]; Leonard Baskin on his 73rd birthday - [Fall 1995 catalogue]; and Susan Allix honoring her achievement of 30 years of publishing more than 40 books under her own imprint - [Summer 2004 catalogue].For many years, we have been aware of Gaylord Schanilec’s unique illustrative style and his special expertise in theexecution of his fine limited edition books. However, it was only after Gaylord’s Artist-in-Residence time at theGregynog Press in Wales (1993/94) with his very beautiful images from the moving and monumental Walt Whitman’s
Wrenching Times
that we realized he was an important figure in the world of fine press work with his powerfulimagery. Today, his work, which combines his skill as a printer with that of an artist, continues to go from strength tostrength with each new publication. His latest work,
 Mayflies of the Driftless Region
 , bears out this observation.Gaylord has had an illustrious career for over 30 years, as a published poet (
The Mainstreeter
 , December 1973), author,lecturer, printer and illustrator. He has received numerous awards, including three Awards of Excellence (1983, 1987and 1989) from the American Institute of Graphic Arts. He was faculty member at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts(1990-1998) and the Penland School, North Carolina, (1997 & 2003). He has spoken to the U.K. based DesignerBookbinders and the prestigious Double Crown Club in London, 2005. He was awarded the Carl Hertzog Award in2006.Schanilec has participated in numerous exhibitions featuring fine printing and Artists’ books in the U.S.A. and in par-ticular the exhibiting of his beautiful
New York &New York Revisited
at the Grolier Club in New York in 2002. His work is represented in fine collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the British Library, the Bodleian Libraryat Oxford, Yale University, Harvard University, the Walker Art Center, the Grolier Club and the Getty Museum.We hope that with the over 40 entries that follow, our homage to an important contributor to the Book Arts will con-firm our assessment of Gaylord Schanilec as a major force in the production of the ‘book beautiful’ in the U.S.A. today.1
