Introduction to the Collection

The Papers of Barry Moser contains correspondence, art work, woodcuts, and illustrated books in all stages of manufacture from typescript to finished copy. The correspondence is arranged alphabetically and contains both professional and personal letters, mostly for the years 1970-1979. Correspondence related to a specific work is filed with those works. The works are arranged alphabetically in two groups, regular and oversized. "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" will be found in both the regular and oversized works, and "The Aenid" and "Inferno" are in oversized boxes only. The works range in size and complexity from the short typescript for "Homage to Mondrian" to the boxes of woodblocks and printed material for "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and the folders of correspondence and reference material for "Moby Dick". Of interest is the "Moby Dick" correspondence, which displays the difficulties, including legal action, of the cross-country collaboration between Moser as illustrator and Andrew Hoyam as designer and publisher.

The woodblocks fall into three groups: first, a group arranged chronologically and pictured in the woodblock catalog (located in box 5); second, the blocks from "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", which are filed by the numbers of the pages on which the prints appear in the book; and third, eighteen blocks which are uncatalogued and unnumbered. [No prints may be pressed from the the wood cuts.]

The following woodblocks appear in the catalog, but are not included in this collection: 71H, 71I, 73D, 76A2, 78J, 78Q, 78R, 78X, 79T, 79V

A box list addendum (boxes 85-137) was added to the collection in 2008 and includes a variety of materials both professional and personal. Professional papers include illustrations, photographs, book jackets, woodcuts, calligraphy, drafts of works, dummy copies, notes, prints, contracts, correspondence with publishing companies, invitations to speaking engagements, copies of speeches, and other professional material related to the Pennyroyal Press and Moser's commissions. Projects include, but are not limited to, "Master Richard's Bestiary of Love". Dante's "Divine Comedy", the Bible, "The Guild Shakespeare", "The Wizard of Oz", "Huckleberry Finn", Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass". Personal papers can be found throughout the addendum, and include correspondence, bills, invitations, newspaper and magazine articles on Moser, and wedding preparations.

Biography

Barry Moser was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee in 1940 and lived there until 1967, graduating in 1962 from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where he studied under artist George Cress. After college Moser taught at the McCallie school in Chattanooga for five years. In 1967 he moved to Massachusetts, becoming instructor of graphic arts at the Williston-Northhampton school in Easthampton, where he taught until 1982. Meanwhile he continued his own studies, under Jack Coughlin at the University of Massachusetts; with Leonard Baskin, illustrator and proprietor of Gehenna Press and with Harold McGrath, a letterpress printer.Moser made his first wood engravings in 1968 and printed his first two books in 1970 under the imprint of Castalia Press. Pennyroyal Press was founded in the same year, and Moser, along with Harold McGrath and Jeff Dwyer, bookseller and publisher, established Hampshire Typothetae in 1977. Ten years of wood engraving was celebrated in 1978 with the publication of "Fifty Wood Engravings" by Pennyroyal. By 1982 Moser had established his reputation as a leading illustrator and designer of books, having illustrated "Moby Dick" for Arion Press, "The Aenid" and Dante's "Inferno" and "Purgatorio" for the University of California Press, "The Odyssey" for the Limited Editions Club, "Johns Brown's Body" for the Book of the Month Club, and Pennyroyal's "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass". "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," the sixtieth book that Moser illustrated and the nineteenth Pennyroyal imprint, won the American Book Award for design-pictorial. Moser's work has appeared in many shows and can be found in a wide range of permanent collections.
