        1918, MANUEL PAILÓS; 1935, GUSTAVO ALAMON. 1944. JORGE CASTERAN. Artistas de América y de España.

      Montevideo 1978 - Libro - objeto del Taller Torres García. Ejemplar Nº 118/150. Firmado y dedicado por Ernesto Heine. Con sobrecubierta. Con obra original constructiva en madera pintada en colores de Pailós, con su firma; y dos ilustraciones en color de Alamón y Casterán con modestos agregados de madera. El libro está divido en tres partes; cada una de ellas dedicada a un artista diferente. El más relevante de ellos fue Manuel Pailós, ya que perteneció al Taller Torres García desde 1942 hasta su clausura en 1967: Pailós lo dirigió en sus últimos años y participó en todas las exposiciones del taller, aproximadamente 125. Sus obras representan al constructivismo de Torres García y en este libro-objeto, vemos una de sus manifestaciones constructivas realizada en madera pintada, que es de gran atractivo visual y lleva la firma del artista. Los otros dos artistas que participan de este libro son: Gustavo Alamón, cuya obra fue muy premiada y existen exponentes de la misma en Museos de Estados Unidos, Sudamérica y Europa y Jorge Casterán, que también profundiza en la obra teórica de Torres García y luego en la obra de la mayor parte de los artistas del Bauhaus; participa en numerosas exposiciones y desde 1976, realiza intervenciones en el campo de la arquitectura (pinturas, murales, instalaciones permanentes, vitrales ) Se trata de una pieza de gran interés, como ejemplo vivo del arte contemporáneo sudamericano. "A Book Produced in the Torres García Workshop That Includes Original Constructivist Art". 163. [Torres García School]. Heine, E. 1918, Manuel Pailós; 1935, Gustavo Alamon. 1944. Jorge Casteran. Artistas de América y de España. Montevideo, Uruguay, 1978. Artistas de América y de España; 1[Montevideo, Rosgal, 1978]. 4to; original boards, with dustjacket (restored). Ex # Nº 118/150; includes original artwork constructed in wood and painted in Pailós colors, with his signature; and two color illustrations by Alamón y Casterán with modest wood attachments. Inscribed by the author. The book is divided into three parts, each one dedicated to a different artist. The most important of these artists was Manuel Pailós because he was affiliated with the Torres García workshop from 1942 until it closed in 1967. Pailós served as director in his later years and participated in every one of the approximately 125 exhibitions held at the workshop. His work is representative of Torres García’s Constructivism and in this book-object we can appreciate an example of his Constructivist artwork in painted wood, which has great visual charm and bears the signature of the artist. The other two artists that participate in this book are: Gustavo Alamón, a prize-winning artist, whose work is part of the permanent collection of museums in the United States, South America, and Europe; and Jorge Casterán, another artist who followed Torres García’s theoretical tenets and later those of the Bauhaus artists. He was featured in numerous exhibitions and, since 1976, has been involved in a number of architectural works, producing paintings, murals, permanent installations, stained glass, etc. This is a piece of great interest as a living example of contemporary South American art. *WorldCat: 2copies in USA (LOC, UT). vols. volumen(es)/volume(s) S.P. páginas [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        39' x 37' x 16' (approx). AND / OR [Gallery]. June 22 to July 9, 1978

      [And/or Gallery], [Seattle] 1978 - 22 unnumbered pages, including inside wrappers. B/w photographic images and diagrams. Catalogue: 8" x 9-3/4". Box: 9-5/8" x 12" Exhibition catalogue signed by Savinar to the front wrapper, accompanied by two sealed, clear plastic bags containing sawdust and wood chips, respectively. Each bag has been mixed with printed paper scraps, apparently clipped from newspapers or magazines and with a construction theme."39' x 37' x 16' (approx)" was a fairly early exhibit in Savinar's now 40+ career as a Portland-based artist. The show offered a mixed media and wood sculptural interpretation of construction work and its intersections with sex, gender, and country music. The bags of construction detritus we speculate may have been byproducts of the art's creation and/or exhibition setup.Scarce. We find no record of this boxed limitation issue, and only four institutional holdings for just the catalogue alone: MOMA, SFMOMA, Portland Art Museum, and San Francisco Center for the Book. Fine condition in Near Fine box (minor wear). Stapled brown craft-paper wrappers printed in black, with partially printed/ partially handwritten limitation info to lower corner.

        All that Jazz (Original screenplay for the 1979 film, inscribed by Bob Fosse, Robert Alan Aurthur, Roy Scheider, and Kenneth Utt)

      Columbia Pictures, Culver City, CA 1978 - Draft script for the 1979 Academy Award winning film. An especially noteworthy copy, likely belonging to a member of the filmmaking security staff, and INSCRIBED by director Bob Fosse, screenwriter Robert Alan Aurthur, leading man Roy Scheider, and associate producer Kenneth Utt: "For Jimmy / Your [sic] the best - I thank you for all your kindness / Bob Fosse." "To Jimmy - Who took such good care of us - Thank you / Robert Alan Aurthur." "For Jimmy - Warmest Regards + Thanks - Roy Scheider." "To Jimmy / The Chief of 57th St. Our sincere thanks for making all of this real estate work and workable. And a special thanks from me, the other dirty old man - Kenny Utt."A remarkable grouping of signatures from authors of the film (as opposed to its cast), includingscreenwriter Aurthur's signature (screenwriters are not commonly found on the set of a film). Also notable for RoyScheider's signature directly next to that of director Bob Fosse, a strange juxtaposition of the real Fosse and the manplaying the fictionalized Fosse.Often compared to Fellini's cinematic masterpiece "8 1/2," "All That Jazz" provides a comprehensive look into the tortured personal life of a highly successful entertainer. Forced to contend with his nearing mortality and confined to a hospital bed following a heart attack, director Joe Gideon drifts through hallucinations and memories laced with musical numbers and theatrical routines. Based on director Bob Fosse's personal experience in show business, and credited by Fosse as having been loosely inspired by Hilma Wolitzer's 1974 novel "Ending" as well. Winner of four Academy Awards in total and was nominated for another five, as well as being nominated for the Palme d'Or.Set in New York City, shot on location in New York City. Black titled wrappers. Title page present, noted as copy No. 70, dated 05/26/78, with credits for screen writers Robert Alan Aurthur and Bob Fosse. 131 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 130.

        The Man Who Japed

      (London, 1978): Methuen. First Edition. Small Octavo. 158p. Dick's haunting work envisions a coming future where major corporations have seamlessly merged with government agencies to create a level of control that only needed the technology that now makes virtual spying possible. His vision of the coming world power structure is not content to know the intimate details of each individual but to shape them so they will be devoid of the spirit of any hint of individualism. Originally, written as a science fiction short story in 1956 it timeliness is even more evident in 2017. This is a remarkably bright copy lacking the pronounced browning found in most issues, just a bit to outer edges. Bound in green cloth, spine lettering gilt. Tiny bump to foot. Very nice.
