        HANDBAG

      New York: Original Artwork 1984. Marker pen and gold ink on black leather purse. 1984. Signed and inscribed to Joy by Andy Warhol on the lid and with $ signs drawn to the lid and back. Signed by Basquiat to the front with an additional 2 crown drawings and "EYE" design to the sides. This handbag was worn by Joy when she accompanied Basquiat and Warhol to Keith Haring's "Party of Life" at the Paradise Garage on May 16th 1984. The artwork was created by the artists during the course of the party. Provenance: Joy "Joystick" Bouldin. Joy was a key figure in the New York club scene of the early 1980s. Aged 18, she arrived in New York and, eschewing her plans to go to college, found work at the Mudd Club. Here she was befriended by Andy Warhol, who introduced her to his inner circle, including Jean-Michel Basquiat (for whom she modelled) and Keith Haring. In 1982 she quit her job in a law firm to "work the elevator" at Danceteria. Deciding who to let in to the private club gave her a key position at the forefront of the emerging culture of the time, positioned at the intersection between fashion, Pop Art, Hip Hop and graffiti. Like key door-people everywhere, Joy knew everyone and everyone knew her. She came up with the idea of having the best known and most applauded graffiti writers, pop artists and musicians tag or draw on her clothing as they came in and out of the club. In doing so she created a wearable original artwork merging fashion, art and music that now also serves as a significant historical document. Downtown New York, became the catwalk for wearable art, the streets were dotted with Suzan Pitt's second-hand painted raincoats, Clayton (Patterson) Hats, the clubs were where the circles of fashion and art danced the night away and there could be no better adornment than a Warhol and Basquiat handbag the downtown version of the uptown (Hermes) clutch. Joy Bouldin sat for Jean-Michel Basquiat several times and was the subject of two of his major works, RED JOY (sold £1.5m Sothebys London 2013) and BIG JOY (sold £2.6m Phillips London 2012), paintings which hung in the artist's first major solo exhibition at Mary Boone Gallery in 1984.

        Les intellectuels en question EDITION ORIGINALE ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      Paris: In Le journal des débats N°29, 1984. Fine. In Le journal des débats N°29, Paris Mars 1984, 18,5x26,5cm, agrafé. - First Edition printed small number of this reprinted from the journal of Pierre Nora, The Debate. Precious autograph signed by the author to his sister "... for you, this little reading and to help you cheer up." Marguerite Blanchot, renowned organist Chalon Cathedral, remained all his life in the family home with his mother and aunt. "It will gradually become, for the family, as the memory of origins." Very close to Maurice, she regularly corresponded with the writer who reflects him great recognition for his dedication to their helpless mother. If intense affection Blanchot for his mother and his sister shines in dedications of it, we know almost nothing of their relations. In the only biographical essay on Blanchot, Christophe Bident reveals, however: "Marguerite Maurice Blanchot worshiped his brother very proud of him, (...) it attached great importance to his political ideas (...) She read a lot (.... .) They phoned corresponded. A distance, they shared the same natural authority, the same concern for discretion. " Blanchot address him indeed many books from his library, now with her continuous intellectual link. As the passion of Blanchot for his mother, it is the turn of his work that we discover the finest examples: "Maybe the power of the mother figure she borrows its brightness to the same power fascination, and one could say that if the mother carries this fascinating attraction is as appearing when the child lives entirely under the gaze of fascination, it concentrates in itself all the powers of enchantment ". Cultivating absolute discretion, Blanchot pushed the art of erasing into his handwritten dedications generally brief and almost always written on cards attached to the rare books he offered his close friends. In contrast, in these precious autograph dedication of the authors to his mother and sister, Blanchot offers in all its fragility and, in the privacy of this correspondence, his work focuses on a previously unknown personal look. A small tear at the top of the back. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale imprimée à petit nombre de ce tiré à part de la revue de Pierre Nora, Le Débat. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Maurice Blanchot à sa soeur "... pour toi, ce peu de lecture et pour t'aider à reprendre courage". Marguerite Blanchot, organiste de renom à la cathédrale de Chalon, demeura toute sa vie dans la maison familiale, avec sa mère et sa tante. "Elle deviendra peu à peu, pour la famille, comme la mémoire des origines." Très proche de Maurice, elle correspond régulièrement avec l'écrivain qui lui témoigne une grande reconnaissance pour son dévouement envers leur mère impotente. Si l'intense affection de Blanchot pour sa mère et sa soeur transparait dans les dédicaces de celui-ci, on ne sait presque rien de leur relations. Dans l'unique essai biographique sur Blanchot, Christophe Bident nous révèle cependant : "Marguerite Blanchot vénérait son frère Maurice. Très fière de lui, (...) elle attachait une grande importance à ses idées politiques (...). Elle lisait beaucoup (...) Ils se téléphonaient, correspondaient. A distance, ils partageaient la même autorité naturelle, le même souci de discrétion." Blanchot lui adresse en effet de nombreux ouvrages provenant de sa bibliothèque, maintenant avec elle un lien intellectuel continu. Quant à la passion de Blanchot pour sa mère, c'est au détour de son oeuvre que l'on en découvre les plus beaux témoignages: "Peut-être la puissance de la figure maternelle emprunte-t-elle son éclat à la puissance même de la fascination, et l'on pourrait dire que si la Mère exerce cet attrait fascinant, c'est qu'apparaissant quand l'enfant vit tout entier sous le regard de la fascination, elle concentre en elle tous les pouvoirs de l'enchantement".Cultivant une discrétion absolue, Blanchot poussait l'art de l'effacement jusque dans ses dédicaces manuscrites généralement succinctes et rédigées presque systématiquement sur des cartes jointes aux rares ouvrages qu'il offrait à ses proches amis. A l'opposé, dans ces précieux envois à sa mère et sa soeur, Blanchot s'offre dans toute sa fragilité et, dans l'intimité de cette correspondance, porte sur son oeuvre un regard personnel jusqu'alors inconnu. Une petite déchirure en tête du dos.

        So Long And Thanks For All The Fish

      London: Pan, 1984., 1984. Inscribed First Edition. Octavo. pp. [5], 191. Bound in publisher's black cloth with titles in silver to spine. Black dust jacket, designed by Gary Day-Ellison, with holographic panel to front cover, and titles in white to front cover and spine, unclipped. Includes publisher's compliment slip. Binding shows only minor bumping to tail of spine. Dust wrapper shows very well, with no signs of rubbing or wear. The book is inscribed by Adams to the front flyleaf, to David Bleasdale, a colleague and associate of the publisher. The title is the final message from the dolphins to mankind, which was misinterpreted as a surprisingly sophisticated attempt to do a double-backward somersault through a hoop while whistling the "Star Spangled Banner." Less a space travel, and more a time travel narrative, and which focuses primarily on the romance between Arthur Dent and Fenchurch, So Long is the fourth book in the Hitch-Hiker's Guide trilogy of five parts.

Downtown New York, became the catwalk for wearable art, the streets were dotted with Suzan Pitt's second-hand painted raincoats, Clayton (Patterson) Hats, the clubs were where the circles of fashion and art danced the night away and there could be no better adornment than a Warhol and Basquiat handbag the downtown version of the uptown (Hermes) clutch.Joy Bouldin sat for Jean-Michel Basquiat several times and was the subject of two of his major works, RED JOY (sold £1.5m Sothebys London 2013) and BIG JOY (sold £2.6m Phillips London 2012), paintings which hung in the artist's first major solo exhibition at Mary Boone Gallery in 1984.

        GRAFFITI DENIM JACKET

      New York: Original Artwork c.1984. Acrylic and ink on a denim Wrangler jacket (size 40). Painted circa 1984. Large "JoyStick" piece with character portrait and smaller "Revolt" piece underneath, to rear jacket panel. A classic Dr. Revolt burner with character portrait of Joy "Joystick" Bouldin. Authentic hand painted clothing from the early days of hip hop are exceptionally rare. Revolt began painting on New York subway trains in the late 1970's and continued throughout the 1980's. As a member of the RTW (Rolling Thunder Writers) he painted with artists such as IZ THE WIZ, ZEPHYR, QUIK and KEL. He appeared in the historic PBS documentary "Style Wars" and along with Zephyr created the iconic "WILD STYLE" mural used in film of the same name. Revolt has never stopped painting and his work is held in museums, galleries and private collections worldwide. He has been in commercial demand since the 1980's designing album covers for artists such as The Fun Lovin' Criminals and Grandmaster Flash and creating the classic "YO! MTV Raps" logo. Provenance: Joy "Joystick" Bouldin. Joy was a key figure in the New York club scene of the early 1980s. Aged 18, she arrived in New York and, eschewing her plans to go to college, found work at the Mudd Club. Here she was befriended by Andy Warhol, who introduced her to his inner circle, including Jean-Michel Basquiat (for whom she modelled) and Keith Haring. In 1982 she quit her job in a law firm to "work the elevator" at Danceteria. Deciding who to let in to the private club gave her a key position at the forefront of the emerging culture of the time, positioned at the intersection between fashion, Pop Art, Hip Hop and graffiti. Like key door-people everywhere, Joy knew everyone and everyone knew her. She came up with the idea of having the best known and most applauded graffiti writers, pop artists and musicians tag or draw on her clothing as they came in and out of the club. In doing so she created a wearable original artwork merging fashion, art and music that now also serves as a significant historical document. In true graffiti spirit, the writers wanted to be seen and learning of Joy's legendary art coats were keen to have their name displayed at the hottest club in town. As a result Joy was gifted items of hand-painted clothing in the hope she would wear them out. This jacket by Revolt was once such item that she loved and wore regularly.

        GRAFFITI JACKET

      New York: Original Artwork. 1984. Keith Haring . . . actually got down on his knees because of my height and drew this [light bulb character]. I could feel him etching against my back. This is not an image that you see replicated if you were to look at [Haring's] body of work, so it really speaks to his improvisation and the spirit of where we were at that particular time on that night." - Joy Bouldin. Marker Pen and ink on a black leather jacket. 1984. An exceptional collaboration artwork. Keith Haring contributes three drawings, a dark green figure diving head first from the right lapel, a dark green snake on the left lapel and a larger light green dancing lightbulb man to the jacket back; Futura adds a large old school tag above Haring in white on the back, a spraycan character drawing underneath Haring on the right lapel, and the scribble tag in green on the left lapel; Fab 5 Freddy takes the left arm in green and dates his tag 1984; Cey draws a stylish "C" outline in silver, dated 1984 to the back and tags in silver on the left lapel; Kano (who went on to be one of the most influential A&R representatives in hip hop working for Tommy Boy, Elektra and Warner) draws a character and tags "Kano love" & "Fresh Kidd" in silver of the back of the right sleeve; Stash contributes several drawings to the back in green including a character and tv screen, also a "destiny" (DestroyEverySubwayTrainInNewYork) outline in green to the bottom left front and possibly the "joystick" outline in pink and green above (although this has futura-esque highlights and elements); Energy (NRG) and Africa131 (Cmor / Afrochild) also tag. There is a silver full body character underneath the front lapel and a couple of other tags that as yet we are unable to attribute. An exceptional artwork bringing together the elite movers and shakers of the 1980 art and club scene. This was Joy's favourite jacket and the one she considered the most important. Provenance: Joy "Joystick" Bouldin. Joy was a key figure in the New York club scene of the early 1980s. Aged 18, she arrived in New York and, eschewing her plans to go to college, found work at the Mudd Club.
