Ludwig Zeller's Limited Edition "Year of the Quiet Sun"

Year of the Quiet Sun is a fine art letterpress folio of unpublished collages by Ludwig Zeller.

The collection will be comprised of a limited edition run of 36 full folios, with additional copies of individual prints for framing. Through the collection, Someone Editions will print Zeller’s poetry, in both the Spanish original and in English translation by A. F. Moritz. Someone Editions will be designing, letterpress printing, and publishing this folio in as many solid colors as each original collage requires, to faithfully represent Zeller's art.

In the words of Nick Drumbolis, antiquarian bookseller, Year of the Quiet Sun is:

“A focal work by a renowned world-class artist faithfully and painstakingly produced by one of the pre-eminent fine presses in our history...This project deserves our support. It will reflect back on our culture with increasing appreciation. Ludwig Zeller is without a doubt, one of the truly great artists of our time. I say seize the time.”
