Two volumes, complete. The "goig" is a typical Catalan art form ("gozo" in Spanish), dating back to the 16th century. It is a broadsheet with a printed poem dedicated to a specific saint, and illustrated with woodcuts or metalcuts. During the 20th century Ricard Vives Sabate was the only artist who kept this tradition alive. These two portfolios contain ten of his goigs, dedicated to those saints most venerated in Catalonia: Sant Jordi (St. George), La Nostra Senyora de Montserrat (Our Lady of Montserrat), Santa Eulalia, Santa Cecilia, Sant Ricard, La Mare de Deu de la Merce, Santa Anna, Sant Josep Oriol, Sant Oleguer, and Sant Lluis. Each of the goigs is printed by hand and illustrated with several metalcuts. From a total edition of 255 copies, each of these portfolios is one of only FIVE copies with the goigs printed on parchment and beautifully hand-illuminated in color and heightened with gold. Furthermore, each of the goigs is signed by the artist. Folio, hand-made paper wraps (also decorated with hand-illuminated metalcuts). Fine and bright, with no defects. N° de réf. du libraire 1494
