Vermillion Editions Limited

A History and Catalogue, 1977–1992

2006

Dennis Michael Jon, editor
Introduction by Kristin Makholm

Vermillion Editions Limited

Captures the spirit of the Minneapolis art scene in its heyday

Founded in 1977 by entrepreneur and master printer Steven M. Anderson, Vermillion Editions Limited was a nationally recognized print workshop in the Minneapolis warehouse district and an important part of the 1970s American print renaissance.

Lavishly illustrated with prints from renowned Vermillion Editions, this book features photographs of the finished products and documents the process of fine printmaking.

The innovation and imagination demonstrated through the images and insightful texts show that something important was lost when Vermillion went down. This catalog is a strong memorial.
