Tom Killion's luminous wood and lino-cut prints of the California coast spring from a combination of the artist's deeply rooted sense of place and his internalization of the aesthetics of the traditional Japanese landscape print. In this volume we can see both Killion's tribute to Hokusai and Hiroshige, the masters of the early 19th century ukiyo-e landscape print, and his debt to California poets William Everson, Robinson Jeffers and Gary Snyder. The original edition of this book was handprinted by the artist in 1979 in a limited edition of 126 copies that long ago became highly valued collector's books available only in the rare book collections of American and European libraries. This new edition of The Coast of California includes many multicolored prints produced by Killion in the intervening years, during which time he has achieved national recognition as a printmaker and book artist.
