        The Work of Kisho Kurokawa : Capsule, metabolism, spaceframe, metamorphose

      Bijitshu Shuppan Sha, Tokyo 1970 - Folio, 94pp. Vinyl boards in printed card slipcase. Poster and record entitled 'music for living' laid in. Colour and Black & White plates. Text in English and Japanese. Tomic work by Kurokawa published in the same year as Osaka expo '70. Kurokawa pioneered the theory of metabolic architecture, where a city can be seen as a living, breathing entity that behaves like a living organism and requires architecture to reflect it's states of evolution and flux. Kurokawa exemplified his theories in Capsule- the pavillion he designed for expo 70, which is detailed here along with domestic work, seattle civic centre, town plans and offices. Echoes similar theories to some of Archigram's work, though Kurokawa's work was actually built- and also pre-empts ideas later used in the back to land movement and geodesic architecture.

        Lettre autographe signée adressée à son amie Carole Roussopoulos

      - s.l. [New York] s.d. [1970], 21x26,8cm, 2 pages et 1/2 sur 2 feuillets. - lettera autografa firmata di 2,5 pagine in-4 (72 righe di un piccolo scrittura) su carta da lettera. Magnifico missiva letterari e storici sulla rivolta maggio 1968. Ha ringraziato la sua amica Carole Roussopoulos (1945-2009) giornalista e regista Svizzera per inviare il suo libro. " ... Da tutto quello che so, è il più scritta male, ma è il più aperto e il dispositivo di raffreddamento. Questo è forse il più intelligente. Voglio dire più chiaro .. .. "aveva amato i muri hanno orecchie" .... riprodotta dal momento che in stampatello iscrizioni il cui calore ed eloquenza - o poesia, se si desidera-sono stati comunicati tanto dalla calligrafia, errori di ortografia, la qualità della parete, materiale grafico, posizione, ecc-mai ancora le mani su una mosca, e poi inavvertitamente ...". Egli dà la sua visione degli eventi di maggio del 1968. Se gli ci sono voluti due o tre giorni" ... per entrare nel bagno a maggio, è che stavo tornando da un tour mondiale, una vita solitaria . e il mio secondo viaggio ai morti la (ordine delle parole o inverso) Force-o prove mi hanno sconvolto la forza -. o la prova (o di ordine delle parole inverso) mi hanno sconvolto . per qualche giorno, circa il 20 al 24 maggio ho creduto nell'esistenza di Dio: il sistema è crollato e in ultima analisi, Dio non esiste ancora il tuo libro ... è venuto a punto. Sauvageot, Cohn-Bendit, Duteil, Geismar tranquillamente mettere il puntino della i. il loro regno è di questo mondo, e per tutti. questo è quello che dicono in chiaro. dicono anche che n ' non c'era nessun miracolo. non tutto è stato progettato da loro, ma solo da azioni necessarie, una sequenza necessaria continuerà. e se è stato interrotto, non viene arrestato ... " . Genet arriva poi alla protesta, che certamente esiste in materia di istruzione, ma quanti restano in discussione dopo l'università? " ... letteraria sopra (tranne Pompidou) e potrebbe essere il primo ad accettare la sfida, ma gli scienziati, quasi tutti sono Dassault, Matra, Rothschild, e quindi porterà la controversia nei laboratori di Radiocité, . Creusot, nickel in Nuova Caledonia - o anche Pierrelatte Questa UNEF proposto tuttavia si prega di Genet che ancora rimproverava Jacques Sauvageot e Alain Geismar prima di fermarsi, esauriti:" ... I n 'non posso più. Sono a New York e io ero con hippies. A seguito di una richiesta fatta a lui per scrivere una prefazione alle lettere di Georges Jackson, nero prigioniero fondatore di afro-americano movimento rivoluzionario Black Panthers, Genet aveva deciso di partire per gli Stati Uniti per rispondere a queste e di prendere una posizione pubblica per loro. Anche se vietato nel paese, è rimasto lì per diversi mesi nel 1970. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Lettre autographe signée de 2,5 pages in-4 ( 72 lignes d'une petite écriture) sur papier à lettre.   Magnifique missive littéraire et historique sur la révolution de Mai 1968. Il remercie son amie Carole Roussopoulos (1945-2009) journaliste et réalisatrice Suisse pour l'envoi de son livre. "... De tous ceux que je connais, c'est lui le plus mal écrit mais c'est le plus franc et le plus frais. C'est peut-être aussi le plus intelligent. Je veux dire le plus net...." Il avait aimé Les Murs ont des Oreilles " ....puisqu'il reproduit en caractères d'imprimerie des inscriptions dont la chaleur et l'éloquence - ou la poésie si tu veux- étaient communiquées autant par la calligraphie, les fautes d'orthographes, la qualité du mur, la matière graphique, l'endroit, etc.- jamais pourtant ma main sur une braguette, ou alors par inadvertance...". Il donne sa vision des événements de Mai 1968. S'il lui a fallu deux ou trois jours "...pour entrer dans le bain de Mai, c'est que je revenais d'un tour du monde, d'une vie solitaire et de mon deuxième voyage chez les morts. La force- ou l'évidence (ou inverse l'ordre des mots) m'ont bouleversé. La force - ou l'évidence (ou inverse l'ordre des mots) m'ont bouleversé. Pendant quelques jours, à peu près du 20 au 24 mai, j'ai cru à l'existence de Dieu : le système s'effondrait. Et puis, en fin de compte, Dieu n'existe pas. Pas encore. Ton livre est venu à point. Sauvageot, Cohn-Bendit, Duteil, Geismar mettent tranquillement les points sur les i. Leur royaume est de ce monde, et pour tous. Voilà ce qu'ils disent en clair. Ils disent aussi qu'il n'y eut pas de miracle. Non que tout fut conçu par eux, mais qu'à partir d'actions nécessaires, un enchaînement nécessaire devrait se poursuivre. Et que s'il a été interrompu, il n'est pas stoppé...". Genet en vient ensuite à la contestation, qui existe certes dans l'enseignement, mais combien restent dans la contestation après l'université ? "... Les littéraires surtout ( sauf Pompidou ) et qui seraient peut-être les premiers à accepter la contestation, mais les scientifiques, presque tous vont chez Dassault, Matra, Rothschild , et alors va porter la contestation dans les laboratoires de Radiocité, du Creusot, au Nickel de Nouvelle Calédonie - ou même à Pierrelatte. Il y a la recherche du CNRS, où il est possible de porter la contestation...[elle] est possible dans les Facultés de Médecine et dans celles de Droit. Va la mener dans les cliniques et les palais de justice. Sauvageot n'en parle pas. Il parle de liaisons des luttes étudiantes et ouvrières, il parle à peine des luttes paysannes... [et] des autres structures professionnelles..." Ce que propose l'UNEF plaît cependant à Genet qui fait encore des reproches à Jacques Sauvageot et à Alain Geismar avant de s'arrêter, épuisé: "...Je n'en peux plus. Je suis à New-York et j'ai été avec des hyppies. Je suis entré dans plusieurs de leurs [mot illisible] et j'y ai connu un vertige à rendre jaloux le fils de la pastoresse. Je t'envoie un journal qu'on vend là bas..." A la suite d'une demande qui lui avait été faite d'écrire une préface aux lettres de Georges Jackson, prisonnier noir fondateur du mouvement révolutionnaire afro-américain Black Panthers, Genet avait décidé de partir pour les Etats-Unis afin de rencontrer ces derniers et de prendre publiquement position pour eux. Bien qu'interdit dans ce pays, il y séjourna plusieurs mois en 1970.

        Marino Marini: Complete Works

      New York: Tudor Publishing Co, 1970. Signed Limited Edition. hardcover. Fine. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, number 7 of only 50 copies with original color lithograph and SIGNED by internationally acclaimed Italian artist Marino Marini. "Early in his career (1931) Marino Marini used the word 'poesia' to describe the quality he wished to render in his sculpture -- he was referring to his portraits. It is a word that will serve to characterize the indefinable personal quality that gives unity to an artist's work -- not the formal unity of which enough has been written here and elsewhere, but the unity of a personal vision of reality, a private world of images or symbols that the artist, by his sovereign power of transmutation, embodies in forms that possess not only imaginative power but also visual delights" (Herbert Read, in the introduction). Complete with a stunningly sharp original lithograph, as well as countless reproductions of Marini's sculptures and paintings. New York: Tudor Publishing Co., 1970. Folio, (36x26 cm); leather-bound book with beautiful gilt detailing on spine and cover; top edge gilt. Housed in original slipcase. Signed by Marini and numbered 7/50 on the lithograph. A fine copy, with particularly rich colors on the lithograph.

      Very Good. Large quarto. Homemade flexible card wrappers with plastic overlay on wrappers and leaves, reinforced with oak tag at the spine. Small tears, very good or better. 18 gelatin silver photographs. Various sizes, one is very small, but the majority are oversized. Images of nature, subways and subway platforms, hippies being busted by police, smoking pot, and at a rock concert, a military grave and a jet plane contrail; the tiny image appears to be a prom picture. Most of the images are captioned with lyrics from then contemporary rock songs (except one from John-Paul Sartre) including Janis Joplin, Buffalo Springfield, Leonard Cohen, Blind Faith, Neil Young, Dave Mason, and others. None of the songs were originally released after 1970, and most seem to be front 1960-1970. The overarching theme seems to be the grittiness of life and ends with the caption "Let There Be Life".
