        THE COMMITMENTS

      Dublin: King Farouk 1987 - First edition. 'Perfect' bound in original pictorial card wrappers designed by Charlie O'Neill. A virtually fine copy that has a few inoffensive scratches to the covers, but is crisp, uncreased and tight. An exceptional copy. Doyle's first book, published by a little known Dublin publisher in the absence of any other takers. A very small number were published and due to the binding the book was apt to fall apart as it was read. Consequently it is now very rare in a good state. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        I Want to Take Picture

      Nexus Press, Atlanta 1987 - FIRST EDITION of one of the seminal photobooks of the 1980'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. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Baltasar and Blimunda.

      Jonathan Cape, London 1987 - First British edition of the Nobel Prize-winning author's first book to be translated into English. Octavo, original cloth. Signed and dated by Saramago. Fine in a fine dust jacket. The New York Times Book Review has said that Baltasar and Blimunda "[m]uch reverberates in memory after reading this enchanting novel, but most of all the love story which soars over the rest of the action like a flute above a heavy orchestra. Mr. Saramago, a writer of sharp intelligence, keeps this love story under strict control, free of pathos or sentimentality. It is of, and on, the earth." Indeed, "Saramago has produced a novel that is deeply imbedded in the history of his land yet moves in mystical realms. It is a romance and an adventure, a rumination on royalty and religion in 18th century Portugal and a bitterly ironic comment on the uses of power" (Walter Goodman, The New York Times).

        Blue Water, Yellow Balls.

      (Easthampton, MA) Warwick Press 1987 - Quarto. (4)pp., accordion-fold. One of twenty copies signed by Carol Blinn, who wrote, illustrated, and printed this book. A poem by Blinn is accompanied by a watercolor illustration that extends across the central page spread, depicting three yellow balls floating on a cerulean pool surrounded by evergreen trees. The image is an homage to David Hockney, who made a series of paintings of swimming pools using vibrant shades of acrylic paint. The title page is accented with blue and yellow watercolor, and on the page following the poem is a palette of the watercolors that Blinn used in her illustration. Created by Blinn in the summer of 1987, the book is an ode to the season, bringing alive the bright colors, heat, and slower pace. Bound in tan cloth with a watercolor label evoking the undulation of water. Housed in a matching box backed in light green morocco. Laid in is a portfolio of materials describing the artist's process of imagining, writing, and designing the book. These include diagrams depicting ideas for the book's binding and eleven drafts of the text, evolving from prose to poetry, showing the author's changes. A lovely, scarce book produced in a very small limitation. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The White Rose

      Newton, IA: Tamazunchale Press, 1987. 31pp. Truman Capote&#39;s essay describes his first meeting with French author Colette, during which she gave him a crystal paperweight and inspired him to start collecting the objects for himself. The book has been specially bound by Tom McEwan to reflect the world in miniature found in paperweights. In his artist&#39;s statement, McEwan explained that his intention was to create "a contemplative, enigmatic design, something which invites the viewer to interpret, examine and explore." Using goatskin, hand-dyed to evoke the "dazzling patterns frozen forever" in crystal, McEwan created swirls of blue, green, pink, and yellow that are transected by shafts of rippling gilt tooling, much as light shines through a paperweight. The design continues onto the doublures, and the flyleaves are hand-colored with acrylic ink to match. Images of statues emerge from within the patterns on the flyleaves, their forms highlighted by more shafts of light in the form of gilt tooling. The technique of incorporating image transfer into the binding is a signature of McEwan&#39;s design style. The page edges have been decorated with acrylic ink and rippling gold. The motif continues onto the buckram box, which is decorated with more hand-dyed goatskin arranged in an abstract pattern and surrounded by gilt-tooled rippling lines. Tom McEwan was elected a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders in 2014 and last year won first in three of the major categories in the Designer Bookbinders Annual Competition, including the Mansfield Medal for the Best Book. He studied fine bookbinding at Glasgow Metropolitan College under Jim Vallance and was the winner of National Library of Scotland&#39;s competition in 2008. (2 1/2 by 1 3/4; 63x44mm).

        American Prospects.

      Times Books, Houston 1987 - First Edition. Oblong quarto. Fine in a near fine dust jacket that shows a small closed tear. Signed by Sternfeld. A very sharp copy. Roth 101; Parr & Badger; The Photobook: A History Vol.II, Joel Sternfeld's work is considered a classic amongst photography, having permanently enhanced the face of color photography. "American Prospects is less a composed sequence than a series of deceptively classical compositions. But many of the pictures contain wild juxtapositions: firefighters extinguish a blaze while one of their number shops nonchalantly for pumpkins matching the flames; a basketball hoop stands sentry in a new suburban dead end; pretty flowers shimmer alongside a sports car in the same wild pink. The idealized semirural life is really a world of uncanny disquiet, perfectly suited to the still and mute image" (Aperture Magazine). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
