All Smithsonian museums and Smithsonian Libraries locations continue to be closed to support the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. We are not announcing a re-opening date at this time and will provide updates on a regular and as-needed basis.
Malcolm Payne’s Face Value is a hand-made book with fourteen copper plate etchings, plus seven etched renderings of his sculptural series, the Mafikeng heads, and essays by curator Patricia Davison, archaeologist Martin Hall, and Payne. The etchings were printed on Zerkal Buetten paper by Paulus Paas. Kathy Abdolaziz set the text in Garamond, and Omega Arts did the lithography.
