Edition originale, tirage limite a 70 ex. numerotes, avec 5 serigraphies originales justifiees, datees et signees au crayon par l'artiste.- Un Japonais en Europe. Assomption du Fuji. Un ete a Messina. Jeux. L'annee philatelique du nez.- Cozette de Charmoy abolit les frontieres entre son travail plastique et son travail poetique. Dans l'ambiance contestataire des annees 60, elle rejoint les milieux cosmopolites de la poesie visuelle et sonore qui, stimules par Fluxus, decouvrent la Terra incognita du monde artistique. Tout devint alors possible et tout au meme moment. Element textuel et element plastique s'imbriquent l'un dans l'autre, chacun devenant, dans le collage, element de l'autre : pas comme une proposition de vrai, mais comme celle d'un possible, comme un rebus a double sens, ironique, irrationnellement logique (Despalles). .

        DISTORTIONS

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1976 - In 4_, leg. in tela con sovracc. ill. in nero, pp. n.d._Due strappi sul fronte della sovracc. e uno sul retro, lievi segni del tempo, buonissime condizioni. Prima edizione Interamente fotografico in bianco e nero con un'introduzione di Hilton Kramer. In inglese. Scatti visionari del grande fotografo ungherese Andr_ Kert_sz (1894-1985). Le distorsioni del titolo sono quelle dei corpi delle due modelle, ritratte riflesse in uno specchio deformante da circo: il corpo ne risulta distorto, deformato, e la luce, usata come solo Kert_sz sapeva fare, esalta, sfuma e guida lo sguardo su scene dall'evocazione onirica. Andr_ Kertesz _ stato uno tra i pi_ grandi fotografi di tutti i tempi e i suoi scatti hanno reso anche le scene pi_ banali degne di essere ritratte. Nella sua vita ha percorso stili, temi e tecniche differenti da rendere difficile una sua collocazione, se non nell'ambito della versatilit_ e ricerca comunicativa, tanto da essere considerato "il padre della fotografia moderna" da Henry Cartier-Bresson. _ [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The author's own library of translations of the Morse series [191 Vols.]

      - 2015 1976 - FIRST EDITIONS and subsequent editions in some cases, various sizes and formats original cloth, boards, or wrappers, dustjackets where applicable, many with original wraparound bands or still in shrinkwrap, a good number with letters to Dexter from publisher enclosing copies laid in or notes in his hand, some with inscriptions to Dexter, all in very good to fine condition. A large group of translations of Dexter's celebrated crime novels, as comprehensive as could be imagined in terms of its coverage, demonstrating the global popularity of his Inspector Morse. Together these constitute a fascinating document of the way a series of books with a very strong sense of place - in this case, Oxford - is adopted and adapted as it reaches new territories. The collection includes first translated editions of Dexter's full list from China, Japan, and Brazil; Scandinavian countries, Estonia, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, and Italy; Poland, Romania, Russia and the Czech and Slovak Republics. Amongst these, European countries such as Sweden and Norway with a strong recent tradition of crime fiction are notably among the earliest - suggesting that Dexter was a model and influence for the current wave of Nordic Noir - but the very earliest examples are in fact from Japan, where Dexter has an enduring popularity. The occasional alterations to the titles of the works, and the variations in design (in some cases simply aping the design of the UK edition, in others providing a domestically-appropriate and occasionally slightly eccentric alternative interpretation), show the way in which the same raw material has been adapted to appeal to particular markets, representing an interesting cultural cross-section. In many cases, additional copies are available individually - please enquire; a full listing of the volumes contained in this collection is also available on request. Ex-Libris Colin Dexter, with Dexter/Blackwell bookplates provided.

        PADDY PORK'S HOLIDAY

      GOODALL, JOHN. GOODALL,JOHN. PADDY PORK'S HOLIDAY: MANUSCRIPT. Offered here is the original book of watercolor drawings for Goodall's picture book Paddy Pork's Holiday, published in 1976 by Macmillan in London and Atheneum in New York. It is bright and in Fine condition with almost the complete story (it does not have the publisher's title and first drawing). The pen and watercolor drawings by Goodall are laid into a folder. There are thirteen two-sided drawings measuring 10 1/2 by 5 inches, each with a flap that changes the scene. There are two two-sided drawings measuring 7 by 5 inches which do not have flaps. Done with vivid colors and set in pre - industrial England, this is the story about a lovely little pig named Paddy Pork who has many misadventures when he ventures out on a holiday. When he goes for a swim, a dog steals his clothing. He sees a scarecrow in a nearby field and "borrows" its tuxedo. Because of his fancy garb when he ventures into town he is mistaken for Herr Grunt a concert pianist. He is taken on stage but just before he is meant to perform, he manages to escape and runs home, happy to be with his family again. There is no text and none is needed because the pictures with the moveable flaps, tell the story. Sold with a first edition of the book.

        ACTION! COMPLETE RUN! 14/2/1976 TO 12/11/77

      IPC 1976 - Here is a scarce and complete run of this highly controversial and collectable comic, devised by the freelance writer Pat Mills in 1975. It was intended to compete with Warlord, reflecting changing times and being more contemporary and realistic. The stories were based on popular films, books, and comic heroes of the period, for example Hook Jaw and Jaws. It became the centre of a campaign by Mary Whitehouse as its content was considered too violent. It was dubbed "The Sevenpenny Nightmare". Distributors like W H Smith threatened to boycott this & other IPC magazines, and so because of this it was withdrawn on 16/10/76, and the 23/10/76 issue was pulped, only a couple of the 30 printed known to be in existence! It reappeared the following month, cover date 4/12/76 with its content toned down and continued until 12/11/77, when it merged with "Battle", which became Battle Action until 1982. It was highly influential, and a direct forerunner of "2000 AD". This is a superb collection of all 85 issues, in splendid condition, all the more unusual with the cheap paper used! More amazingly, issue 2 has a perfect Free Gift!! The Iron-on Transfer of Hook Jaw!! A remarkable opportunity to buy a little piece of comic history! [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
