“The Cowboy Builds a Loop”
Portfolio of Sixteen Prints 1944
This is the 1944 “The Cowboy Builds a Loop” portfolio from the fine art estate of Lon Megargee. It contains 16 images chosen from his 1933 original book “The Cowboy Builds a Loop”, which contains 28 plates and poems. The 1944 portfolio was created as an extension of the book which was no longer available. The prints were likely done ona letter set press using the images from the 1933 book and are not the original block prints, which are larger. I don’t know how many of the 1944 portfolios were made, but I don’t feel that they were produced in large numbers as would be done today. The foreword is written by Oren Arnold, novelist, journalist, and humorist, 1900-1980.
Paper size is 12 x 8.75 inches, images vary within that size.
