        "Dodge Sportflite" Concept Art

      c. 1970. Watercolor and pastel on illustration board. Signed "William A. Moore". 17 x 23 3/4 inches. Framed. 25 1/4 x 31 1/4 inches. Intriguing concpetual drawing for an unusual pickup truck Three views of a rather dazzling vision of a pickup truck, and though the "Dodge Sportflite" was never produced, the idea of making more luxurious and innovative pickup trucks has definitely caught fire since the time of this handsome drawing. This design brings the driver over the engine, as in many heavier trucks, giving the driver greater command of the road, especially for town and city driving. The styling of the cab and cargo bed is anything but mundane with lines, vents, a black ribbon around the cab, and two large additional brake lights that add a notes of elegance and creativity to the overall effect. "In 1956, William Moore won the General Motors Fisher Body Craftsmen' Guild National Exhibition for his car design. In 1968, he accepted a position as Head of Design for Lear in Reno, Nevada. William Moore's art has been placed in...the Smithsonian and the Favell Museum of Art and Artifacts..." (The Museum of Automotive Art and Design website).

        Live At Sussex University, 1970

      Brighton; Coldstream. c.1970, 1970. A set of photos consisting four near mint black and white period print photographs (on three sheets) of The Who live in concert at Sussex University, 19th October 1970, signed by the band in blue ink; one image of Pete Townsend leaping, signed by the guitarist, one close-up of Roger Daltrey, additionally inscribed 'Cheers' by the singer, and one sheet of photographic paper with two identical shots (one reversed) twice signed by bassist John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon (i.e. each signing each picture). With photographer's stamp (John Coldstream) to rear. A superb, uniform set of images from the classic 'Who's Next' era, each photo approx 10 x 8 inches in uniform common mounts, ready for framing. The Who rose to rock and roll stardom initially as part of the "British Invasion" and then became the loudest band on the planet; their live performances were infamous and for most of the 1970s they were listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the loudest rock band in the world, measured at 130 decibels, achieved by John Entwistle's resonant low end and Pete Townsend's trademark windmill power chords. As a result of their rock'n'roll lifestyles the band has sadly suffered two drug-related casualties; the outrageous drummer Keith Moon died in 1978, and virtuoso bass guitarist John Entwistle died in 2002. Provenance; Ex-Bonhams Rock n Roll Memorabilia, no.11808, lot 681 (pt.).

        [Photographie originale] Deux portraits photographiques "inconnus" et "ratés" d'Ezra Pound à Venise, circa 1970, par Jean-Michel Folon

      1970. Photo. Illus. by Jean-Michel Folon. Très bon. Aucune reliure. Deux tirages gélatino-argentiques d'époque, tous deux avec cachets et mentions variées de l'hebdomadaire "L'Express". 27 x 20,5 cm pour le premier, 29,5 cm x 24 cm pour le second, celui-ci avec des trais au crayon rouge pour son recadrage dans "L'Express". Les deux portraits ont été publiés, comme en attestent les divers tampons, dans "L'Express" du 4 décembre 1972 (n° 1117), le premier p. 154, le second p. 155, recadré. Dans le même numéro figurait également un troisième portrait de Pound par Folon, debout et tête levée, dont nous n'avons pas trouvé de tirage (mais connaissons le négatif). Ces trois photos, qui à notre connaissance n'ont pas été publiées ailleurs, étaient accompagnées d'un joli texte de Folon intitulé "Le spectre de Pound" qui explique comment il a pris ces clichés. Nous le retranscrivons intégralement : "Nous somme entrés dans un jardin très beau. Avec ses cheveux tellement blancs, son long corps maigre, il ressemblait à un spectre. Mon ami Fulvio Roiter, le photographe vénitien, avait été chargé d'un reportage. Moi, je regardais ce mort-vivant, dans une lumière inoubliable. Je me rappelle de la lumière, comme dans les aquarelles de Turner sur Venise. Je voulais le lui dire. Mais il paraissait tellement loin de ce monde-ci. Parfois, le déclic de l'appareil de Fulvio rompait le silence. Le temps s''était arrêté. J'ai dit à Mme Pound que c'était une situation étrange : est-ce que son mari était vraiment absent de tout ce qui se passait autour de lui ? "Vous pensez que vous le dérangez, mais ne vous y trompez pas. Au fond, il sait l'impression qu'il donne, il sait qu'il est beau." Nous nous sommes promenés dans le jardin. J'ai pris, moi aussi, quelques photos, il semblait qu'après tout ce soit une chose à faire. Et Ezra Pound a levé la tête. J'ai compris en un instant qu'il était complètement lucide. Son oeil de rapace m'a transpercé. Difficile d'oublier cette petite boule noire d'acier qu'il avait au fond de l'orbite, et qui vous jugeait. Nous sommes partis. Le film s'est mal enroulé dans l'appareil. Les images se sont superposées. Comme si son univers mental l'avait emporté sur son apparence physique. Mais il ne pouvait en être autrement avec Ezra Pound." Deux très rares photos du grand poète moderniste au crépuscule de sa vie. Ces tirages sont tous deux très probablement uniques et constituent un document exceptionnel. (Nous joindrons les photocopies d'après microfiche des pages de l'Express ou ces images apparaissent.).
