(Chez Panisse) Dinner for Italian Friends.

Menu, 13x7", linocut image with watercolor print in Bodoni type on Rives Heavyweight paper by Patricia Curtan. Berkeley: March 1, 1992.

According to Curtan, "An importer of Italian pastas, wine, olive oil, vinegars, and other delicious foods arranged a dinner to host a group of visiting producers. The menu featured many of their artisanal goods, and the image of an Italian village suggests the small-scale, traditional ways. The black line is a linocut and the watercolor was added by hand." Mild crease to upper left corner, else very good.
