        Le Chien Guingan et le Chat Calicot

      Mill Valley, CA: Sunflower Press, 1977. (16)ff. From an edition of 250 copies printed and signed by Carol Cunningham, this copy is in an original designer binding by Sonya Sheats. Evoking the fierce battle between the Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat, the artist envisioned "a tangle of lines tracing the tossing and tumbling" of the small beasts in the middle of the night," drawing sharp, angular, intersecting lines in red, blue, and gray enamel across the covers to map their struggle. This motion is set against a background of subtly textured and shaded natural dark parchment, which Sheats notes "has a soft, round, and whole presence." The binding structure is an homage to the influential German bookbinder Otto Dorfner, employing an open-joint style that he innovated. The spine is covered separately from the boards, which are then connected with four bands of pale blue water snakeskin. The ends of the bands are hidden under half-moon onlays of the same natural parchment. For contrast, the doublures are thin, bright white parchment. The book slides into a parchment-covered box etched with the title on one side in a modern, san-serif font. Elements of the design also hint at the influence of Brother Edgard Claes, including the sliding polycarbonate closure to the box which is painted with lustrous beige automotive paint. Sheats describes her work as part of the tradition of French fine bookbinding, mixing traditional techniques with modern materials. She apprenticed with Anne Vion in France and has studied with some of Europe's leading bookbinders. Illustrated throughout in bright primary colors by Marcie Collin, who also translated Eugene Field's popular children's poem "The Duel" into French for this miniature tome. Extremely fine, protected in a blue microsuede pouch. (2 1/4 by 2 1/2; 57x64mm).
