        The Wink, The Kiss, The Slap

      Dallas, Texas:: Black Rose Press,, 1987-88.. Edition of 15. 3 x 4 x 3" plexiglas box with 3 flip books in drawers. Books: 3 x 2" miniatures bound in fur. Letterpress printed. Susan Kae Grant: "Inspired by failed relationships, [this work] consists of three miniature flip books bound in rabbit fur and contained in a plexiglas jewel box. On the surface, the books appear to be light and entertaining. However, upon closer examination the tiny flip books become painful symbols and reminders of the growing number of dysfunctional relationships in the culture. Beginning with the courting process, the reader is introduced to familiar issues such as 'pursuit,' 'trust,' 'response,' and 'deception.' The combinations of materials (fur and cubic zirconium) represent symbols used in society for enticement. The transparent and closed quality of the box entices the viewer, yet also provides a barrier much as the behavior that shapes human relationships."The three fur-bound books are presented in a treasure like chest with a 'man made' diamond mounted in the pull of each drawer. Fur and diamonds symbolize and represent the status people are encouraged to search for in relationships and the treasures the consumer industry has taught them to expect. "Repetitive text is printed letterpress on cards stock and contact-size photographs are original laser prints. Each of the three books is bound in a color chosen symbolically for the intended message. While flipping the pages, the alternation between male and female stares, winks, and kisses is barely noticeable and seems innocent. In the last book, The Slap, gender is hardly decipherable and the physical gesture combined with the color no longer appears innocent.

        Things Change Medallion, and Autograph Note Signed

      1987. A sterling silver medallion, dated Fall 1987, a year before the film's release, with the title and the two principal cities of the film, Chicago and Tahoe, printed on the perimeter. Of unknown (to us) purpose, but presented by Mamet, with an autograph note signed to a collector: "To ___ - Here is an item I do not think you have - with all best wishes/ David/ 6F95." The medallion is 1-5/8" in diameter, and has two ribbon attachment points on the back (no ribbon present). The note is on the back of Mamet's business card (which states only "David Mamet"), and it has been curled around the medallion, with retained creases. Exceedingly scarce memorabilia of a Mamet film, with a note attesting to its provenance being directly from the author himself.

New York: Kaldewey, 1987.|~| |~||~| A rare early work combing the talents of the artist Jonathan Lasker who contributed three original drawings to each of the 45 copies, and the bookmaker Gunnar Kaldewey. The paper for this edition was made at the Kaldewey mill, especially for this edition. The entire book evokes a sense of grayness, from the binding, to the drawings and lastly in the imagery produced by the poem itself. The stark imagery of Ashbery's poem is perfectly complimented by Lasker's original harsh black, white and gray drawings. One of 45 copies, signed on the colophon by Ashbery and Lasker.

        I Want to Take Picture

      Atlanta: Nexus Press, 1987. First edition. Photo-pictorial paper-covered boards. A fine copy. Folio. Illus. with b/w photos and color images. Shot on several trips to Southeast Asia during the 1980's, Burke's photos reveal much of the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge's effects on Cambodia. "Each day, I was thinking about practicality, is my pass in order, how do I get there, who do I meet that will get me through. The philosophical thoughts came later. When I realized that I had access to the camps and could see the Khmer Rouge, it was like being able to see the Devil. It seemed to be an incredible opportunity." Color reproductions of various local objects and selections from Burke's diary enhance this very influential work. "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). Parr & Badger: 2, pp. 40-41. Roth 101: pp. 258-250.
