        Bat Bean Bag Toy

      (Middle Falls, NY): Toy Works, 1980. This bean bag toy of a bat with outstretched wings measures approximately fifteen inches from wingtip to wingtip. The fabric is printed with a black and white crosshatched pattern that is shaded on the wings and body to give the figure more dimensionality, evoking Gorey’s characteristic drawing style. The wings are stiffened and stitched along the folds. The bat also has glittering red rhinestone eyes. This is one of five bean bag animals in a collection designed by Edward Gorey and produced by Toy Works; it is also the largest of these toys. Although the toys in this series are not all necessarily characters from Gorey’s works, this bat appears to be inspired by his designs for a 1977 production of Dracula. Fine.

        He:/She: (SIGNED)

      Chicago: Chicago Books, 1980. First Edition. Hardcover.. Near Fine. Oblong 8vo, Unpaginated (66pp). Stiff spiralbound wraps. 8 four-color reproductions of Polaroid SX-70 images. Text in English. Flatsigned to titlepage by Heinecken. No creases/dents/scuffs. More images available on request. Legendary and very scarce artist&#39;s book from the late and controversial Heinecken, who made it originally whilst teaching in Chicago. The New York times described it thus: "In the &#39;He/She&#39; pieces the sexual content is mostly implied by the text, since only a few of the Polaroid prints are sexually explicit. &#39;He&#39; and &#39;She&#39; characters talk somewhat disjointedly about such matters as kissing and going to bed, but the main thrust of the dialogues is to explore what Heinecken has called &#39;relational possibilities.&#39; The pictures, which often have little to do in any obvious way with the dialogue they frame, seem simply to offer a visual set of relational possibilities that interact with those of the text." Wonderful to see in such a good condition, and of course, signed.

        I Want to Take Picture

      Atlanta: Nexus Press. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION of one of the seminal photobooks of the 1980&#39;s. SIGNED BY BURKE INSIDE ORIGINAL DRAWING OF HIS HAND. One of only 1000 copies printed of the first edition. "Bill Burke has become known for his large-format portraits shot on Polaroid Land film, which have the formality and feel of nineteenth-century photographs whilst remaining acutely modern in their sensibilities. In his best book, I Want to Take Picture, this technique is entirely appropriate, since it records his personal pilgrimage to southeast Asia, duplicating the enterprise of the old colonialist photographers but adding a contemporary twist... "Although the pictures have a nineteenth-century feel, the book is also a diary that records a twentieth-century experience. Burke not only uses his photographs, but also employs documents- reproductions of ephemera like money and bus tickets- and collages them with handwritten captions. The result is a kaleidoscopic impression of his journeys, taking the book out of the documentary realm and into that of the personal road trip. However, this particular sojourn does not merely connate the search for self that occupies so much of late twentieth-century American photography. It also represents a moving attempt to come to terms with some of the events that haunted his generation" (Parr/Badger, The Photobook). Roth 101. Atlanta: Nexus Press, 1987. Folio, photo-pictorial boards. A fine copy. Rare signed.
