David Farmer Author- WILLARD CLARK: PRINTER AND PRINTMAKER

      WILLARD CLARK: PRINTER AND PRINTMAKER

      by David Farmer.        Museum of New Mexico Press 

      “On his way to California, Clark hit Santa Fe in 1928 (remember what happened in 1919!) and decided to stay.  He weathered the Depression years as a commercial printer, but one with the artistic skills that allowed him to create handsome, multi-color illustrations for menus, sales brochures, and the like.  World War II changed that: he went to work for Los Alamos National Laboratory, where he stayed until he retired 40 years later.  He then picked up his wood-block cutting tools, bought other printing presses and began a second career as printer and printmaker.  Farmer give us a biography of both of those “printerly” years, supplying dozens of color and black-and-white illustrations of Clark’s style, which was perfectly suited to Santa Fre at that time, which was becoming ‘the city different.’  Handsome book, well-designed and beautifully printed.”- W. David Laird
