There are scattered corrections in the text, and Logan has signed his name and address on the Contents page as well as on the return address of the accompanying envelope addressed to an editor. We could find no book publication of any of the poems except for "The Yellow Christ" which was published in a pamphlet [included] called THE POEM AS RELIC published in 1989 by the University of Buffalo after Logan's death.

        County Survey

      Kalamazoo, Mich: Rarach Press, 1989. Signed Limited Edition. Fine art binding. Near fine. Ladislav R. Hanka. One of 38 copies. Poems and essays by James Armstrong and Ben Mitchell, 16 etchings by Ladislav R. Hanka, typography by Amy Bollinger. This copy beautifully bound by Peter Geraty. One of two copies bound by Geraty for an exhibition celebrating Ladislav Hanka's imprint Rarach Press: 50 x 25: An Exhibit of 50 Rarach Press Books Bound by 25 American Design Binders, Elizabeth Perkins Prothro Galleries, Bridwell Library, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX. Oct. 11 1993 - Jan. 22, 1994. Sponsored by the Bridwell Library, the exhibition also circulated to Houston Baptist College and University of California at Los Angeles. From the Bridwell Library Exhibition catalog: "50 x 25" is not only an exhibition but also a "world premiere," of the most recent work of contemporary bookbinders in America. Arising from an invitation to twenty-five artists to create two distinct bindings of a Rarach Press imprint, the exhibition presents unique and important design bindings which make use of a wide variety of media and techniques. From the Colophon: "County Survey has been a collaborative effort among a number of long­term residents of Kalamazoo County. ... Typography and letterpress work by Amy Bollinger; completed at The Private Press and Typefoundry of Paul Hayden Duensing, Vicksburg, Michigan. ... The artist and publisher is Ladislav R. Hanka. ... The paper is Daniel Smith Archival Print paper. The edition is 38 ..." Binder's statement: The binding is made from two skins as the book is so large. The colored parts are inset, airbrushed papers. The texture of the book is made from a pressing die of aluminum foil that was wrinkled to resemble a river on a piece of binders' board. It was backfilled with gesso to harden it up and the rest of the board was textured with just plain gesso. After the leather was put on, it was allowed to set up for about 30 minutes, and then the binders' board die was placed on top and the whole thing sent through an etching press. Full green textured leather, airbrushed paper inlays, gold tooling, multi-colored hand-sewn endbands. Housed in a custom dropback box by the binder. Bound by Peter Geraty in 1993. 51.5cm x 33cm.

The pagination (on rectos only) is in reverse order, as a count-down to the dodo's extinction, and Hudson's illustrations and design also reflect the fate of the bird: 'The text progressively takes over the pages, leaving less and less space for the hapless bird, until finally only a lone feather surrounded by type is left to remind us that there ever was such a creature as the dodo' [prospectus].

        Gary Schneider: "john": Original Photographic Print

      New York City, NY: Gary Schneider Studios(1989). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 1 pages. Rare Gary Schneider collectible art. A pristine, framed original photographic print of "John" Cover Image, titled, dated, and signed by Gary Schneider. There is no ISBN. The print is now rare. A brilliant production by Gary Schneider: Small-size print format. Measures 5 X 7 inches.

Without DJ, as issued. Presents Gary Schneider's "John". The extreme close-up of the model John Erdman's face, used by the artist/photographer as the iconic Cover Image of "Gary Schneider: Portraits" (2004), and one of the artist's most beautiful creations. "Gary Schneider creates unique, luminescent portraits that transform their specific subject matter and probe the enigmatic character of identity. Schneider's re-presentation of nineteenth-century studio portraits, his handprint photograms, and his fragmented face portraits reveal as much about the language of photography as they do about the subjects being depicted. An extraordinary artist" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item/artwork for Gary Schneider collectors. This framed original photographic print is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully titled, dated, and signed in pencil on recto by the artist/photographer: "John 1989 Gary Schneider". This title is a great photographic print. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online, is elegantly framed, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Gary Schneider prints command thousands of dollars from his galleries, at art fairs, and at auction. His work is slowly but surely destined for canonical recognition. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed print thus. 1 original photographic print. One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A flawless collectible print.

        Comeundone WITH: Prospectus WITH: Extra page initialed by the printer

      New York: Pooté Press, 1989. First Edition. Boards. Fine. Henrik Drescher. Printed by master printer Ruth Lingen. Her copy, specially selected by her for the particularly high quality of printing, execution of board decoration, and binding. Her last copy available for sale. Copy 16/100. Includes her contemporary waxed paper wrapping marked "16" and "save" in her hand. Illustrator Henrik Drescher has described his work as a junkyard of the imagination, and Comeundone is part junkyard, part artists sketchbook, with free-associative phrases and wordplay accompanying hallucinogenic line drawings, photographic montages, and color stenciling. The books fanciful, Borges-like subtitle Being a complete and Reliable Descriptive Collection of the Perilous Explorations and also Important Discoveries made in the wildest Territories upon the Face of the Earth, encountering Savage Men, Ferocious beast, poisonous reptiles etc. etc. Et al. Covering period of Twelve Months 1988-1989 appears to be a misnomer until one begins to explore the phantasmagoric images that repeat and morph in Comeundone.Drescher notes that since an early age Ive been an image scavenger, my mind has always been alert to image debris, keeping ideas and images in books, which then spill into my painting and illustration. In my image making I try to register the idea of everything at once, a sort of Sears & Roebuck mail-order catalog filled with an inventory of all that has ever existed in the course of organic history and human memory scars, tattoos, cracks, memories, impressions, flashbacks, and forgotten instructions. These elements appear in abundance in Comeundone, the title itself perhaps a description of the artist, perhaps an instruction to the reader. Of note are the books depictions of the seven deadly sins, repeated exhortations to pray, and the cruciform shape of the book, all providing a subtextual religious commentary drawn from Dreschers fecund imagination.The pulp painted and shaped pages Ruth Lingen produced for Comeundone are an unexpected and energetic presentation of Henrik Dreschers doodle-like line work (exhibition catalogue, Artists Books: Highlights from the Kohler Art Library, University of Wisconsin-Madion, November 15, 2001 March 15, 2002). In addition to publishing to book under her Pooté Press imprint, Lingen, herself a book artist, made the paper, letterpress-printed the pages, executed the stenciling, and bound the book.Prints & Books: Artists Collaborations with Printmaker Ruth Lingen, p.48-49.Of 100 copies, two were deliberately destroyed as substandard. Printed on die-cut, handmade pulp paper, sewn on red tapes; bound in hand-painted boards; original steel box. The custom cruciform steel box tends to oxidize to green; the box of this copy has been freshly polished at the printers studio. 48 pp. 15.25cm x 15.25cm x 2.55cm.
