I can just imagine him smiling as I write this or even disapprove, (too shy) that rascal! A beautiful giving and inspired human being and I do hope it's worth writing about. I truly thought moments ago that I give up adding to this blog but then I can't help myself sharing memories of a Marblers' quest for beauty.
In the early 80's after his lecture at Stanford University Chris was asked by Sandra Kirshenbaum of Fine Print to do a cover for her publication with
one of his flowers, but only in black & white (do to costs). He told her he couldn't do that but limited his design to two colors made to fit the cover and flowers especially created for it.
The printers told me later on when I visited them in SF that they had a heck of a time showing the fine lines coming out of the flowers.
Needless to say, every time the magazine was laid out it was taken by people. This was the first color cover of Fine Print and after that they always used color. The next cover was the piece of Chris's research of an Indian Miniature and another one for Fine Prints Tenth Anniversary.
