        O RIO DE JANEIRO: A PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNAL BY BRUCE WEBER - SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER

      (WEBER, BRUCE). Weber, Bruce. O RIO DE JANEIRO: A PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNAL BY BRUCE WEBER - SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER. Signed Presentation Copy from the Photographer. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., 1986. First Edition. Folio. Pictorial Wrappers. Photography Monograph. Very Good -. np, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Text in English and Portuguese. Drawings by Richard Giglio. Designed by Sam Shahid, Rise Daniels and Donald Sterzin. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Bruce Weber's second book - an outrageously lavish paperback that was published at the then unheard of price of $60.00! - is a joyous celebration of the cultural diversity of Brazil. Filled with tanned, elegant bodies on the beach, and in hotels and nightclubs, "O Rio de Janeiro" portrays the city's youthful hedonism in a way that had not been captured before, or since. One of the most notable aspects of this book is the many portraits of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu legend Rickson Gracie, and his fifteen member family at work and at play. An internally handsome example of this most desirable early Bruce Weber title (cited on pages 254-57 of "The Book of 101 Books") additionally bearing the BOLDLY SIGNED AND DATED PRESENTATION "To ... / love Bruce / L.A. - Aug 23 - 88" in blue ink on the front free endpaper showing some light overall wear and staining to the wrappers and edges of the textblock along with some mild rippling to the front cover and the top edge at the front of the textblock from contact with moisture. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase. 0-394-55938-X Inventory Number: 024415

        The Flood

      Edinburgh, Polygon, 1986., 1986. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. Pp188. Soft cover issue, published simultaneously with the hardback. Minor wear, read once. Signed by the Author, with his hangman's gallows motif below. This copy belonged to 'Apple' Jon Curt, flat-mate and fellow student of English at Edinburgh University, who graduated with first class honours but then abandoned his doctoral thesis after a year. By way of compensation Rankin made him 'Dr. Curt', forensic pathologist of the Rebus novels. Truly scarce- whilst technically more common than the hardback (around 750 copies compared with 300), our experience shows this as the more elusive of the two (no others available at time of writing). This may be down to the fact that paperbacks are read and lost/discarded more often than hardbacks.

A suite of nine "ghost" illustrations printed on Arches cover paper, each sheet measuring 9 1/2 by 11 3/4 inches (240 x 397 mm). The suite features an elephant-man in a variety of poses, with the muted gray tones adding to the moodiness of the images. Toledano states that the sets of monoprints were announced but never completed; however this edition is evidence to the contrary. Housed in a burlap portfolio, as issued, with ties. Very fine.

        Lilith [SIGNED]

      The Boxwood Press, Statesboro, GA 1986 - 1/25. Large quarto. Unpaginated. Original half yellow cloth over paper covered boards, with gold lettering on spine. Illustrated title page. Limitation page numbered and signed by Bernard Solomon. Splendid poetical essay on Lilith, one of the most fascinating legendary figures of Midrashic literature. Indeed, according to the legend Adam's first wife was not Eve but a woman named Lilith, who was created in the first Genesis account. Only when Lilith rebelled and abandoned Adam did God create Eve, in the second account, as a replacement. The legend was greatly developed during the Middle Ages, in the tradition of Aggadic Midrashim, the Zohar and Jewish mysticism. The resulting Lilith legend is still commonly used as source material in modern Western culture, literature, occultism, fantasy, and horror. This work is superbly illustrated throughout with 20 hand-colored illustrations by Bernard Solomon. One of 25 copies, of which this is copy No. 3. This volume was hand-printed on Hosho paper. Some discoloration on covers. Minor and sporadic foxing throughout (not affecting illustrations). Binding in overall good+, interior in good+ to very good, illustrations in fine condition.

He has created several artists’ books under the Unes imprint.Colette Deblé (b.1944) is a painter who works in Paris. She has collaborated on several artists’ books.Christine Giard has been studying and teaching bookbinding for over 35 years. Her formal academic background is in the sciences, but her true love has always been the arts: literature, drawing, painting, music, and nature photography. Christine discovered bookbinding while she was creating floral art, one of many ways she found to combine art with her love of nature.In bookbinding, Christine found the perfect combination of her interests and talents. She immerses herself completely in the combination of the precision required in binding structures of all kinds, the attributes of the (mostly) natural materials involved, the freedom to choose or create the materials she uses to realize her designs, and the opportunities to never, ever stop learning. Her passion and creativity is evident in her bindings. Christine’s design aesthetic leans toward minimalism, but her use of unexpected techniques and materials create a tightly controlled tension that makes her work vibrate with energy.Christine is trained in trade binding, design binding, restoration, conservation binding, paper-making, and several paper marbling and dyeing techniques. She loves that she can work in all of these areas and combine them as she chooses.Christine has studied with many reknowned bookbinding artists, including: Micheline de Bellefroid, Michel Richard, Hugo Peller, Edwin Heim, Vladimir Tchekeroul, Sun Evrard, Helene Jolis, Edgard Claes, and Anne Goy.

        ORIGINAL ART: FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING [MISS MOUSIE DRESSES FOR WEDDING

      - CONOVER,CHRIS. ORIGINAL ART: FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING [MISS MOUSIE DRESSES FOR WEDDING p. [9]]. Offered here is the full page watercolor used opposite the third page of verse in Conover's Froggie Went A-Courting published by Ferrar Strauss Giroux in 1986. It is the story of a handsome humanized, seafaring frog's wooing of Miss Mousie. An entire world of humanized creatures is created around this traditional song with text retold by Conover. Reviewed by School Library Journal as a 'tour de force.'. This illustration measures 7" wide x 9 1/4", signed. Miss Mousie is looking at her refelction in the mirror. She's wearing an elaborate wedding dress being altered by rabbits. Froggie sits behind a screen having some ice-cream. Absolutely beautiful. Conover has been illustrating children's books since 1974. Her work is noted for rich colors and incredible attention to detail, some of which is executed using a magnifying glass for accuracy. There is plenty to look at but without the overcrowding that hampers so many modern children's books. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
