"Not Breakfast" (State 1 on White Paper) - Edition of 20
Signed Lithograph, created by Beatrice Wood in 1993.
State 1 Edition, printed on white paper, in an Edition of 20.
Published by Hamilton Press, and printed by Ed Hamilton.
Hamilton Press came into being in 1990, as a result of a collaboration between Tamarind Master Printer, Ed Hamilton, and Los Angeles Artist and avid printmaker, Ed Ruscha. The two had worked together on about 40 prints, and both had a great respect for the idea of producing original artworks in a multiple form.
The printer and artist worked out what they thought would be the best situation for the creation of art in this medium, which would be limited to traditional lithography. The concept of the business would be to encourage artists, both new to printmaking and those already familiar with the process, to produce art in a peaceful, unhurried atmosphere. The Press opened its doors in a small space on Washington Blvd (soon to become Abbot Kinney Blvd) in Venice, California, and in 2001 expanded into an adjoining space for a gallery to showcase the work.
Ed Hamilton functions as printer, rolling out inks and bringing to life the hand-drawn works of those published. But the star of the operation is the imagination and creativity of the artist. It is to that spirit of creativity and cooperation in business and art that this website is dedicated.
