This exhibit examines the legacy of Trianon Press, a 20th century fine art publisher based in Paris.

Working with talented artisans, Trianon perfected a painstaking technique of reproducing original artwork by building many hand-stenciled layers upon a photographic collotype. Among the most notable achievements of Trianon Press were the publication, in partnership with the William Blake Trust, of a series of facsimiles of the works of William Blake, as well as renewal of interest in the work of Marcel Duchamp via the grand-deluxe edition of his catalogue raisonné, Eau et gaz à tous les étages.

The Trianon Press Collection, generously donated by Dean & Kim Pananides, is a new addition to the Special Research Collections. Learn more about their story here.
