        Los Angeles Punk Flyers

      Los Angeles. 1980s-early1990s. A collection of 404 flyers and handbills promoting Los Angeles punk venues and bands from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s featuring acts such as, Social Distortion, Dead Kennedys, Bad Religion, and Operation Ivy. The flyers are all printed on standard sized sheets, mostly 8.5" x 11" or 4" x 6", in various colors with several incorporating rubberstamped elements. Overall near fine or better with only scattered edgewear and light soiling.This collections shows a mix of bands, both known and unknown, responsible for creating the Los Angeles brand of punk rock. Beginning in the early 1980s Los Angeles had been introduced to hardcore and started fashioning the definitive version of the genre with bands like The Mentors, T.S.O.L., and Black Flag. With this new brand of punk rock came a new, and more violent, approach to the music often resulting in police raids. This also triggered counter genres such as ska and reggae versions of punk as developed in bands like the Toasters and Bad Brains, both represented here.Numerous venues sprung up during this time including Godzilla's, Anti-Club, and a resurgence of interest in the Whisky-a-Go-Go thanks to the promotion of former Runaways manager, Kim Fowley. Formed in 1979, Anti-Club, was the brain child of Russell Jessum, Jack Marquette, and Jim Van Tyne and was home to many LA bands including many from SST Record, the label of Black Flag's Greg Ginn. Renowned for their violence, SST bands, including Black Flag, were constantly watched by police and caused some venues to put a ban on hardcore at their clubs.After roughly half a decade of angst and tension the scene collapsed on itself but emerged with groups like Hole (one early flyer featured here) with more controlled rage. However, the culture had shifted significantly with "do-it-yourself" sensibilities overriding major labels and promotion falling to the bands themselves and small scale managers utilizing makeshift flyers and art to promote the music to the masses. A vivid assemblage of 80s punk culture representing LA's burgeoning hardcore scene including a varied assortment of obscure bands that would be difficult to duplicate. .

        Seven San Francisco Punk Flyer Paste-ups

      [San Francisco]. 1979 and 1980. Collage paste-ups for seven flyers created and obtained from artist Eddie Troia for shows at The Temple (aka The Temple Beautiful and The Geary Temple) in San Francisco in 1979 and early 1980. Cut and paste elements on letter and legal sized sheets, some with holograph text written with white out on overlays. Some elements with typical rippling from paste, near fine. A collection of paste-ups documenting punk shows at The Temple, an old Synagogue near the Fillmore and the Jim Jones Temple, which became a punk venue in 1979 but ceased having punk shows the following year. The building was damaged by the 1989 earthquake and was subsequently torn down. The mock-ups are for shows by quite a cross section of the punk, avant, and industrial bands in SF at the time, with shows by Impatient Youth, Flamin' Groovies, Alley Cats, Suburban Lawns, No Alternative, Minimal Man, The Offs, Mutants, X, Subhumans, Mondellos, Roy Loney & The Phantom Movers, Soul Rebels, Dead Kennedys, Phone Bill, Zeroes, Sleepers, and B People.Eddie Troia was a playwright, artist, and manager for Jane Dornbacker. His art is characterized by a sure use of confident holograph titles with well-chosen images from pop culture, contrasted with a cleanness resulting from the skillful use of glassine overlay. Striking and beautiful artwork documenting a very important but short-lived venue of the era, as well as a valuable look at the graphic techniques of flyer creation before the computer. It is getting more and more difficult to find original mock-ups from meaningful performances, especially in a grouping. .

        Kreuzritterburg von Otranto.

      - Bleistift, auf cremefarbenem Pauspapier. 21,5:29,4 cm. Kleiner Einriß im Unterrand, kleines Löchlein im Himmel links oben. Provenienz: Friedrich August II., König von Sachsen, Lugt 971. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Von Dillis bis Piloty, München 1979, S. 74, vgl. Abb. 43-45; Kat. H.W. Fichter, Gezeichnete Kunst, Bd. 4, 1990, Nr. 37 sowie Bd. 9, 1995, Nr. 53; Joseph Fach, 2001, Kat. 80, Nr. 56. Zeichnungen auf Pauspapier fertigte Reinhold meist als Vorarbeiten für Gemälde an. Diese in der Regel vor der Natur entstandenen Studien verkaufte er allerdings nur, wenn ihn Geldnöte dazu zwangen. Bei der hier vorliegende Zeichnung kann es sich allerdings nicht um eine vor Ort entstandene Zeichnung handeln, da Reinhold selbst nie in Otranto gewesen ist. Vermutlich ist sie die Pause einer Zeichnung von J. Thürmer (1789-1833), der 1818 auf dem Weg nach Griechenland in Otranto auf das Schiff wartete, mit dem er die Reise fortsetzen konnte. In seiner Begleitung fanden sich damals seine Freunde und Kollegen F. Heger (1792-1836) und H. Hübsch (1795-1863). Ersten Unterricht erhielt Reinhold an der Dresdener Akademie. 1807 übersiedelte er zu seinem Bruder und Förderer Friedrich Philipp Reinhold (1779-1848) nach Wien, wo er bis 1809 die Akademie besuchte. Ein Aufenthalt in Paris folgte von 1809-1814, danach wohnte er wieder in Wien. Hier begegnete ihm J.A. Koch (1768-1839) und er verkehrte im Kreise von Fr. Olivier (1791-1859). Nach einer Reise mit E. Welker (1788-1857) und J.Chr. Erhard (1795-1822) zum Schneeberg bei Wien unternahm er mit seinem Bruder Friedrich Philipp und den bereits oben erwähnten Malerfreunden im gleichen Jahr eine längere Studienreise nach Salzburg und in das Berchtesgadener Land. 1819 ging er mit Erhard nach Rom und verbrachte in den Jahren 1821, 1822 und 1824 die Sommermonate in Olevano. 1824 lernte er in Rom K.F. Schinkel (1781-1841) kennen, der Landschaftsstudien von ihm erwarb. Reinhold war vor allem Landschaftszeichner, malte aber seit 1816 auch in Öl. Er pflegte engen Kontakt zu J.J. Faber (1778-1846) J. Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794-1872), C.W. Götzloff (1799-1866), A.L. Richter (1803-1884), J.H. Schilbach (1798-1851) u. a.

The most comprehensive collection of Bowles' short fiction in its most limited state. While we have seen several copies of this edition over the years, this is the first copy we've seen or handled with a contemporary presentation inscription by the publisher's.

        Kreuzritterburg von Otranto.

      . Bleistift, auf cremefarbenem Pauspapier. 21,5:29,4 cm. Kleiner Einriß im Unterrand, kleines Löchlein im Himmel links oben. Provenienz: Friedrich August II., König von Sachsen, Lugt 971. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Von Dillis bis Piloty, München 1979, S. 74, vgl. Abb. 43-45; Kat. H.W. Fichter, Gezeichnete Kunst, Bd. 4, 1990, Nr. 37 sowie Bd. 9, 1995, Nr. 53; Joseph Fach, 2001, Kat. 80, Nr. 56. Zeichnungen auf Pauspapier fertigte Reinhold meist als Vorarbeiten für Gemälde an. Diese in der Regel vor der Natur entstandenen Studien verkaufte er allerdings nur, wenn ihn Geldnöte dazu zwangen. Bei der hier vorliegende Zeichnung kann es sich allerdings nicht um eine vor Ort entstandene Zeichnung handeln, da Reinhold selbst nie in Otranto gewesen ist. Vermutlich ist sie die Pause einer Zeichnung von J. Thürmer (1789-1833), der 1818 auf dem Weg nach Griechenland in Otranto auf das Schiff wartete, mit dem er die Reise fortsetzen konnte. In seiner Begleitung fanden sich damals seine Freunde und Kollegen F. Heger (1792-1836) und H. Hübsch (1795-1863).. Ersten Unterricht erhielt Reinhold an der Dresdener Akademie. 1807 übersiedelte er zu seinem Bruder und Förderer Friedrich Philipp Reinhold (1779-1848) nach Wien, wo er bis 1809 die Akademie besuchte. Ein Aufenthalt in Paris folgte von 1809-1814, danach wohnte er wieder in Wien. Hier begegnete ihm J.A. Koch (1768-1839) und er verkehrte im Kreise von Fr. Olivier (1791-1859). Nach einer Reise mit E. Welker (1788-1857) und J.Chr. Erhard (1795-1822) zum Schneeberg bei Wien unternahm er mit seinem Bruder Friedrich Philipp und den bereits oben erwähnten Malerfreunden im gleichen Jahr eine längere Studienreise nach Salzburg und in das Berchtesgadener Land. 1819 ging er mit Erhard nach Rom und verbrachte in den Jahren 1821, 1822 und 1824 die Sommermonate in Olevano. 1824 lernte er in Rom K.F. Schinkel (1781-1841) kennen, der Landschaftsstudien von ihm erwarb. Reinhold war vor allem Landschaftszeichner, malte aber seit 1816 auch in Öl. Er pflegte engen Kontakt zu J.J. Faber (1778-1846) J. Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794-1872), C.W. Götzloff (1799-1866), A.L. Richter (1803-1884), J.H. Schilbach (1798-1851) u. a.

        The Book of Jonah. Together with Thirteen Wood Engravings by David Jones for The Book of Jonah

      London: Clover Hill Editions, 1979. Quarto. 19pp. One of 300 copies of the ordinary edition, printed on J. Green mould-made paper by Will Carter at the Rampant Lions Press. The portfolio of loose engravings is one of sixty sets printed on Japon. Illustrated with thirteen wood engravings by David Jones, several of which frame the text. Jones was encouraged by Eric Gill to learn the craft of wood engraving, and although one can see the influence of Gill's work in these illustrations, they also reveal a sense of darkness and tumult that is distinctly Jones's own. The first edition was published by the Golden Cockerel Press in 1926; the new edition was printed using Jones's original blocks. The engravings in this portfolio are printed on the same paper as the extra suites in the deluxe and vellum copies of the 1979 reprint, and are untrimmed and therefore slightly larger than the prints included in those suites. The book is very fine in the publisher's binding of cloth-backed patterned paper-covered boards and a clear mylar dust wrapper. Engravings fine in a printed tan card folder.
