Abe M. Tahir, Jr., was born in Greenwood, Mississippi. He attended the University of Mississippi and the George Washington University, earning two degrees. He later owned the Tahir Gallery in New Orleans, where for twenty years Jacques Hnizdovsky's prints were the best-selling works on display. After the first edition of Hnizdovsky Woodcuts, 1944-1975 (now out of print) sold out, Mr. Tahir and Mr. Hnizdovsky agreed that a new edition was necessary. They began work on it early in 1985. Following Hnizdovsky's untimely death later that year, Mr. Tahir felt that a new book of woodcuts seemed more imperative. Abe M. Tahir, Jr., lives in Metairie, Louisiana. He has donated a 1974 Hnizdovsky wood engraving to the Williams Research Center at the Historic New Orleans Collection.
