        skizze zu envirement der tote der durst hat bei ars viva handsigniert und datiert 5.9. 79

      1979 - federzeichnung, bezeichnet skizze zu envirement "der tote der durst hat", galerie ars viva berlin, signiert und datiert 5.9. 1979, blattmaß etwa 21 x 29,5 cm, blatt hat am oberen rand eine leichte knickstelle Wikipedia: Vostell war einer der wichtigsten deutschen Maler, Bildhauer und Happeningkünstler der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts. Wolf Vostell setzte von 1950 an erste künstlerische Ideen um.1953 begann er hografenlehre und besuchte in Wuppertal die Werkkunstschule. Unter dem Eindruck einer Parisreise 1954 stellte Vostell erste Decollagen her. 1955/1956 besuchte er die Pariser École National Supérieure des Beaux Arts und 1957 die Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. Skulptur, Malpartida de Cáceres, Spanien 1958 fand unter Vostells Beteiligung das erste europäische Happening in Paris statt, und Vostell produzierte erste Objekte mit Fernsehern und Autoteilen. Beeindruckt von der Arbeit von Karlheinz Stockhausen im elektronischen Studio des WDR im Jahre 1954 entstanden 1959 elektronische „TV-décoll/agen“. Damit begann sein Engagement in der Fluxus-Bewegung, die er Anfang der 1960er mitbegründete. Skulptur (einbetoniertes Auto), Malpartida de Cáceres, Spanien Fast gleichzeitig im Jahr 1959 gründete Vostell das Vostellarchiv. Mit großer Leidenschaft und strenger Kontinuität sammelte Vostell Fotografien, künstlerische Texte, persönliche Korrespondenz mit Weggefährten wie Nam June Paik, Joseph Beuys, Dick Higgins und vielen anderen, sowie Presseartikel, Einladungen zu Ausstellungen und Events oder auch Bücher und Kataloge, die sein eigenes Schaffen und das der Künstler seiner Generation dokumentieren. Vostell wurde in den frühen 1960er Jahren Aktivist des Happening, der Fluxusbewegung und der Videokunst. Dadurch wurde über die 1960er und 1970er Jahre das Vostellarchiv eine umfangreiche Informationsquelle für Autoren, Verlage und Ausstellungsmacher in aller Welt. In den 1980er und 1990er Jahre ließ Vostells Sammelleidenschaft nicht nach. Die über 6000 Bücher fassende Privatbibliothek des Künstlers ist seit den 1990er Jahren Teil des Archivs. Das umfangreiche Werk Vostells ist fotografisch dokumentiert und ein wichtiger Bestandteil des Archivs. Etwa 25.000 Dokumente aus vier Jahrzehnten machen das Vostellarchiv, das sich seit 2006 im Museo Vostell Malpartida befindet, zu einem kunsthistorischen Schatz, der für Kunsthistoriker, Journalisten und Autoren zugänglich ist. Vostell initiierte viele Happenings, unter anderem in New York, Berlin, Köln, Wuppertal und Ulm. 1962 wirkte er bei der Planung des Festum Fluxorum in Wiesbaden mit; er beriet hier gemeinsam mit Nam June Paik und George Maciunas. 1963 wurde Vostell mit seinem Environment „6 TV décoll/age“ Sammlung Museo Reina Sofía Madrid zum Pionier der Videokunst. 1965 nahm er am 24-Stunden-Happening in der Galerie Parnass in Wuppertal teil. 1967 setzte er sich im Happening „Miss Vietnam“ mit dem Vietnamkrieg auseinander. 1968 kam es in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Komponisten Mauricio Kagel und anderen zur Gründung des „Labor e.V.“, das akustische und optische Ereignisse erforschen soll. „Ruhender Verkehr“, 1969 Wolf Vostell war der erste Künstler der Kunstgeschichte, der einen Fernseher in ein Kunstwerk integrierte. Dieses Werk von Wolf Vostell aus dem Jahre 1958 mit dem Titel „Deutscher Ausblick“ ist Teil Sammlung Berlinischen Galerie. Frühe Werke mit Fernsehern sind auch TRANSMIGRACION I-III (1958) und ELEKTRONISCHER HAPPENINGRAUM Environment 1969. 1992 ehrte Köln Vostell mit einer großen Retrospektive. Seine Werke wurden auf sechs Ausstellungsorte verteilt, das Kölnische Stadtmuseum, die Kunsthalle Köln, Rheinisches Landesmuseum Bonn, Kunsthalle Mannheim, Schloss Morsbroich Leverkusen und Städtisches Museum Mülheim/Ruhr. Unter der künstlerischen Leitung von David Vostell entstand über diese Retrospektive der Dokumentarfilm VOSTELL 60 - RÜCKBLICK 92. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Suttree

      New York:: Random House,, 1979.. New York: Random House, 1979. First edition of the author's fourth novel and what many consider to be his finest. Octavo, original half cloth. Some light fading to the extremities as usual, an excellent copy in a supplied fine dust jacket. Inscribed by the author, "For Bill + Ann with love Cormac." Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Suttree is the fourth of McCarthy's novels to be published, but he had started it well before his first, The Orchard Keeper, appeared in 1965 to great critical acclaim. The principle scene of Suttree is Knoxville, Tennessee in the early 1950's. The central figure, Cornelius Suttree, is a fisherman who lives in a dilapidated houseboat on the river. Estranged from his prominent family, he has withdrawn from the society they represent, choosing instead a different world inhabited by people who live precarious, desperate, often violent lives. "McCarthy is a writer to he read, to be admired, and quite honestly- envied" (Ralph Ellison).

        To be, or not... to Bop

      Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., , 1979. Memoirs. Octavo. Original blue cloth-backed orange paper-covered boards in dust jacket. 56 plates. Slightly pulled at the head of the spine, the jacket unclipped, but with a little crumpling head and tail of the spine, short closed split at the head of the spine, and a similar split to the upper panel, however the spine remains bright-bright red, a very good copy indeed. First edition, first printing. Signed and dated in the year of publication by Gillespie verso of the half-title, uncommon thus. Gillespie's off-beat sense of humour - why else "Dizzy"? - and lengthy career have led to him sometimes be viewed as merely the class clown, and at worst as an Uncle Tom, the truth is that no other figure of the be-bop era contributed more - as artist, composer, arranger, and educator - to the development of the culture of jazz. Eminently readable autobiography of a true jazz giant.

It was originally intended as mainly a vehicle to promote new typeface designs, made available under licence to typesetting system manufacturers. Published ¿when available material allowed¿,Baseline nevertheless gained an immediate reputation despite only appearing on average once a year for its first 10 years of existence. Its editorial content, despite the obligatory typeface promotion, struck a chord with the typographic community, because of its objective, and informed approach.' This set is large format (apart from the first 9 issues) and heavy. It is likely to incur increased postage costs. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Reading is Fun!

      Printed for Reading is Fundamental, Inc. in collaboration with the Mattel Foundation Printed for Reading is Fundamental, Inc. in collaboration with the Mattel Foundation, 1979 Color Lithograph, 35 ½ x 23 inches. Printed for Reading is Fundamental, Inc. in collaboration with the Mattel Foundation, 1979. Signed and inscribed by the artist for his friend and contemporary children's author & illustrator James Marshall: "For Jim / With love! / Maurice Sendak / Mar. '79". Image depicts three characters from Where the Wild Things Are (1963): Max sits in his wolf costume reading Where the Wild Things Are, while two Wild Things sit behind him- one is sitting on a book, wearing a party hat, and holding cutlery above his head in preparation to eat a feast of books (including Picture Books by Randolph Caldecott, Fairy Tales by the Brothers Grimm, and a volume of nursery rhymes), and the other is wearing a book as a hat and holding a goblet with a book topped with a cherry. In the background, a crescent moon is nose-deep in a book. Below the image is the capitalized serif text: "READING IS FUN!," along with publication information and the artists' inscription. Near fine and bright, with slight rippling and a few faint traces of light smudging to the foot of the poster. In a silver metal frame. A lovely copy with a warm inscription. This poster is inscribed to James Marshall, children's author and illustrator, best known for his 1972 story about two hippopotami, George and Martha, as well as other unique, lovable characters. Sendak and Marshall were close friends with similar interests. Although they had hoped to work collaboratively, Sendak and Marshall's joint works were all published posthumously after Marshall's death in 1992. In addition to an introduction he wrote for the collection of George and Martha stories, George and Martha: The Complete Stories of Two Best Friends, Sendak also created illustrations for Marshall's unpublished manuscript Swine Lake, which was later published by Harper and Collins in 1999. In addition to enjoying their friendship, Sendak revered Marshall's creative abilities, writing in his introduction to George and Martha: "Marshall is the last of a long line of masters that began in the late 19th century with the pre-eminent English illustrator, Randolph Caldecott…settled finally, splendidly, on the judicious, humane, witty and astonishingly clever head of James Marshall." In an effort to increase children's welfare and draw attention to social problems such as malnutrition, education, and child labor laws, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declared 1979 the "International Year of the Child" in a proclamation signed January 1, 1979. In the same year, Maurice Sendak created an original illustration for Reading is Fundamental, Inc. (RIF), which collaborated with the Mattel Foundation on specific projects relating to the International Year of the Child. While the Mattel Foundation supports children's early learning and development in a variety of fields, RIF is specifically focused on children's literacy and access to books. In 1979, RIF created the event "Reading is Fun Day," as "a time to recognize the pleasures found in books and to mark the start of summer reading" and as the high point of the organization's initiative for the International Year of the Child. On October 11, 1979, schools around the United States received new books for their students, along with Reading is Fun posters and bookmarks designed by Sendak. While the physical poster is indicative of RIF and UNESCO's projects, Sendak's original illustration is a testament to the importance of children's books and illustration. Aside from the obvious allusion to his Wild Things, Sendak references the historical importance of Randolph Caldecott and the brothers Jacob and Wilhem Grimm. While the Grimms' fairy tales "led to the birth of the science of folklore" as well as the genre of children's literature, Randolph Caldecott similarly revolutionized children's literature with his renowned and beloved illustrations, which inspired the Caldecott Medal for children's illustrators. Like. Inscribed by Author. 1st Edition. Color Lithograph. Fine. 35 ½ x 23 Inches.

        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Part 1, The Exchequer Years 1922 - 1929

      London: William Heinemann Ltd., 1979. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good . The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - sixteen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. The Companion volumes for Volume V of the Official Biography are perhaps the most keenly sought and most prohibitive to acquire of all Official Biography volumes. There was only a single printing in England and the Volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than other Companion volumes - meaning that many Official Biography sets will forever do without. Here is a jacketed copy of the first of the three Volume V Companions, the British first edition, only printing. Condition is near-fine in a very good dust jacket. The red cloth binding is square, clean, and tight, retaining a nicely rounded spine and bright spine gilt. The contents remain bright and clean. We find no spotting. The red-stained top edge is clean and retains strong color, only modestly sunned. The sole previous ownership mark is a tiny bookseller sticker (Sotheran's of London) affixed to the lower front pastedown. The white dust jacket is clean and entirely complete, with no losses or tears. There were two prices on the dust jacket flap - an original introductory price and then a higher price specified after 1 February 1981. Both prices are intact on the unclipped lower front flap. What prevents our grading this jacket as "fine" is some trivial wrinkling at the spine ends and slight spine toning. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302e1.

        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Part 1, The Exchequer Years 1922 - 1929

      London: William Heinemann Ltd., 1979. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - sixteen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today.

There was only a single printing in England and the Volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than other Companion volumes - meaning that many Official Biography sets will forever do without. Here is a truly fine copy of the first of the three Volume V Companions, the British first edition, only printing. The white dust jacket is immaculate with absolutely no flaws to report - crisp, bright, clean, and complete with no discernible wear. There were two prices on the dust jacket flap - an original introductory price and then a higher price specified after 1 February 1981. Both prices are intact on this unclipped dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. The book beneath is likewise truly fine and appears unread. The red cloth binding is clean, tight, and square, showing virtually no wear and retaining a nicely rounded spine, sharp corners, and bright spine gilt. The contents are pristine. There is no sign of the looseness or gutter breaks that so often occur with this massive volume. There is no spotting and no previous ownership marks. The fore and bottom edges are as clean and bright as the contents. The sole trivial flaw noted is that the first half inch of topstain immediately adjacent to the spine is very slightly sunned. The balance of the red topstain retains deep unfaded color. Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302e1.

        Shashin Tokkyubin / Photo Express: Tokyo, No. 1 and No. 2

      Tokyo: Paroru-sha, 1979. Close to near fine in photo-illustrated stapled wrappers. Uncommon: I have handled only one complete set and smattering of issues over the years.. First Editions. Thin stapled quartos. The first two (of ten) issues of Keizo Kitajima's first publication (volume one SIGNED by Kitajima). A series of monthly booklets published in tandem with his groundbreaking exhibitions at the CAMP gallery, founded by Daido Moriyama after the dissolution of Workshop, and predating Kitajima's work in book form. Both the exhibition and publications were a watershed in the history of Japanese photography, marking the end of the are-bure-boke hold over young Japanese photographers, and ushering in a new era of influence, with punk and pre hip-hop overtones.

        To be, or not. to Bop. Memoirs.

      Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1979 - Octavo. Original blue cloth-backed orange paper-covered boards in dust jacket. Slightly pulled at the head of the spine, the jacket unclipped, but with a little crumpling head and tail of the spine, short closed split at the head of the spine, and a similar split to the upper panel, however the spine remains bright-bright red, a very good copy indeed. 56 plates. First edition, first printing. Signed and dated in the year of publication by Gillespie verso of the half-title, uncommon thus. Gillespie's off-beat sense of humour - why else "Dizzy"? - and lengthy career have led to him sometimes be viewed as merely the class clown, and at worst as an Uncle Tom, the truth is that no other figure of the be-bop era contributed more - as artist, composer, arranger, and educator - to the development of the culture of jazz. Eminently readable autobiography of a true jazz giant. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Hand Cast and Photos (from The Bandaged Poets Series)

      1979. Plaster cast of William S. Burroughs's right hand created by Caroline Gosselin as part of her Bandaged Poets Series with several accompanying photographs taken by Gerard Malanga of the casting process, Burroughs holding the finished hand, and of Gregory Corso. The unsigned hand is 5" x 2.75" x 7" with a rectangular base and is assembled from two separate molds of the front and back of Burroughs's hand which were then affixed together. Fine with a touch of toning from being handled. Accompanied by four original photographic prints of Burroughs holding the hand, each a different size: 13.75" x 11", 9.75" x 8", 7" x 5.5", and 7" x 5". All are fine except one which has been cut down from a larger photo and has a somewhat ragged top and foredge, near fine. Also included is a long, narrow photo strip measuring 63" x 3.5" with 36 separate images: twenty-four of Burroughs's hand being cast; four of Burroughs holding the hand (but different from the larger images); and eight of Gregory Corso, presumably present when the cast was made, sitting by a window. The strip is Signed on the verso: "Gerard Malanga '79" with "739" stamped nearby, though there is some reason to believe the photographs, (or at least a few) were taken by Ira Cohen who helped conceive of the series and married Gosselin in 1981. Supposedly only two copies of the cast were made; the other is reportedly at the Beinecke Library at Yale. .

        THE ROMANCE OF KING ARTHUR AND HIS KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE. Inscribed by the King of Horror to the Father of Horror Films

      (New York): Macmillan and Co., Limited, (1979). First Thus. Hardcover. Fine in a Fine dustwrapper. Arthur Rackham. Abridged by Alfred W. Pollard and illustrated in color and black-and-white by Arthur Rackham. INSCRIBED on the title page by Stephen King to filmmaker George Romero: George--/I want to congratulate you again on a/stunning and beautiful piece of filmmaking./Here's something that I thought might, in view/of the Knightriders subject-matter, ring a bell--/Steve King/2-6-81." The allusion by King is to the 1981 Romero film KNIGHTRIDERS, based on Arthurian legend about a group of modern-day jousters who reenact tournaments on motorcycles. King and his wife Tabitha had a 20-second cameo in the film. The following year the Romero film CREEPSHOW, written by King, came out. Romero would later make one of the better film adaptions of a King book, THE DARK HALF. George Romero was inspired to make horror films after making a segment for Mister Rogers' Neighborhood in which Mr. Rogers underwent a tonsillectomy. His first film, Night of the Living Dead (1968), sparked interest in zombies, currently in full blossom.
