         The Little Engine That Could. Published Book and Original Artwork

      Tuffy Books, New York 1990 - Octavo-sized Tuffy Tote Book with accompanying design templates and original artwork. Book is (12)pp. These items demonstrate the design process for children's board books, with particular attention in the templates to text layout, branding, and die-cuts that enhance illustrations on either side of a page. The templates display editorial marks in pen, with text and branding taped and pasted on top. Not only to these materials embody the design process of children's books, but they also represent the late-career efforts of their artist, Tony Tallarico, who spent most of his life in the world of comic books. Tallarico is particularly known for being the artist behind "The Great Society" comic book, published by Parallax, which satirized the administration of Lyndon Baines Johnson, and the short-lived series "Lobo" of Dell Comics, the first comic with an African-American to headline his or her own series. Bumps to corners of templates and books, creasing at top of books, stickers on inside front cover cover up inscription. Fine.

Chr. nachempfunden einer der geheimnisvollsten Kunstschätze und mystisches Zeugnis frühen irischen Christentums Originalformat von ca. 33 x 25 cm 680 Seiten alle Blätter sind, dem Original entsprechend, randbeschnitten und wurden von Hand geheftet Vorzugsausgabe mit Schmuckkassette, deren Silber- und Messingelemente dem Book of Kells nachempfunden sind weißer Echtledereinband auf 4 Bünden wissenschaftlicher Kommentarband in Original-Halbledereinband mit Vorwort von Umberto Eco TOP PREIS Das Book of Kells entstand um das Jahr 800 auf dem Höhepunkt irischer Mönchskultur, als irische Klöster einflussreiche kulturelle und geistige Zentren Europas bildeten. Das Book of Kells wurde vermutlich im Kloster Iona um das Jahr 800 von unbekannten, genialen Künstlern geschaffen. Ein erster Hinweis auf seine Existenz findet sich in einem Bericht von 1007 über einen Diebstahl in der Kirche von Kells, in dem das Buch "Das große Evangeliar des Columcille, die Hauptreliquie der westlichen Welt" genannt wird. Bald darauf wurde das in Kells vergrabene Buch aufgefunden. Es blieb in Kells, bis man es während der Regierungszeit Cromwells aus Sicherheitsgründen nach Dublin brachte. Um 1661 übergab es Henry Jones, Bischof von Meath, dem Trinity College. Seither wird es in der Bibliothek des College in Dublin gehütet. Kaum ein anderes Werk besitzt eine solch ungeheure Symbolkraft und magische Ausstrahlung wie dieses prachtvolle Evangeliar. Das Geheimnisvolle gründet vor allem im Reichtum und in der Komplexität seiner Dekoration. Der Eindruck der Heiligkeit des Textes wird durch eine Ausgestaltung, die übernatürlich anmutet, bestärkt. Aufgrund einer stilistischen Analyse der Schmuckelemente kann das Book of Kells einer künstlerischen Tradition zugeordnet werden, die sich auch in anderen Kunstwerken dieser Epoche findet. Aber für eine genauere Datierung und Herkunftsbestimmung der Handschrift aus ihrem ursprünglichen historischen und geographischen Hintergrund heraus sind die Beweise nicht eindeutig. Das Book of Kells enthält vor allem die vier Evangelien. Aber auch andere Texte fanden Aufnahme: etwa am Anfang der Handschrift Kanontafeln, die die Konkordanzverzeichnisse enthalten, die von Eusebius von Cäsarea zusammengestellt worden waren, oder für das Kloster Kells wichtige besitzrechtliche Urkunden. Der lateinische Text wurde in stolzer insularer Halbunziale geschrieben, die wie auch die Illumination einen Höhepunkt irischen Kunstschaffens darstellt. Das Book of Kells muss in einem Skriptorium entstanden sein, das selbst die ausgeklügelten Finessen der Handschriftenherstellung beherrschte, denn nur mit einem äußerst fundierten technischen Wissen und hervorragenden Kenntnissen über vergangene und zeitgenössische Kunst war es möglich, eine solche Fülle symbolhafter und geheimnisvoller Darstellungen zu schaffen. Das Book of Kells enthält so manche Miniatur des frühen Mittelalters, die zu den schönsten zählt, die je geschaffen wurde. Bis auf zwei sind alle Seiten dieser Handschrift mit einer fast unbeschreiblichen Fülle symbolträchtiger und mystischer Malerei ausgeschmückt. Die Handschrift beeindruckt sowohl in der Anzahl als auch in der Größe der Pergamentseiten, die durchschnittlich die Maße von 33 x 25 cm aufweisen. Es wurde nicht für den täglichen Gebrauch und auch nicht für das Stud [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Sexual Personae: Art And Decadence From Nefertiti To Emily Dickinson

      New Haven, CT: Yale University Press(1990). First Edition / First Printing. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket. 718 pages. The author's breakthrough debut book. One of the most sensational literary debuts of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original by a University Press. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Camille Paglia's "Sexual Personae". Her breakthrough, and still her best, book. Twenty years in the making (the basis was her doctoral thesis, supervised by her mentor, Harold Bloom, our greatest living literary critic), it took Camille Paglia almost as long to get the book published, with a string of seven rejections by commercial publishing houses. "Sexual Personae" is the most audacious and rebarbative work of literary and cultural criticism of the last decade of the 20th century, by a writer who openly proclaims herself to be the authentic voice of the rebellious and influential "Sixties Generation". Paglia is actually quite rigorous and old-fashioned when it comes to her scholarship. Her erudition is breathtaking, and her book is studded with arresting insights that will surprise and unsettle many readers. An intellectual is valuable not because of the answers he or she gives (that role belongs to the so-called pundit) but because of the questions he or she asks. In her own singularly dramatic, over-the-top, and compelling manner, Camille Paglia is, in effect, calling for another Cultural Revolution, which will finally free Americans and the West of the shackles of its Judaeo-Christian "Puritan" legacy (mainly, institutional religion and the pernicious culture of political correctness) and bring about a return to the glories of the Graeco-Roman "pagan" past, which she argues is deeply repressed yet very much alive. Even if she will always be misunderstood, Camille Paglia has pulled off a genuine triumph: "Sexual Personae" is an enduring contribution, one that she has not herself surpassed, her two brilliant collections of essays being an application to contemporary issues of the ideas in her ground-breaking book. An absolute "must-have" title for Camille Paglia collectors. This copy is very prominently, thoughtfully, and beautifully signed, dated (before official publication), and inscribed in blue pen on the front free endpaper by the author: "For Kent - SP and its author thank you for your heroic proofreading, which caught so many errors and kept these creamy pages pristine! Camille December 1989". Kent Christensen is a close friend of Paglia, is mentioned in the Acknowledgments Page, and proof-read at least one more Paglia book, "Break, Blow, And Burn". Her thank-you note (in her beautiful handwriting) to her vigilant and erudite proof-reader comes with another page-long note from her, commenting on the book's choice of words and overall literary style, which sounds exactly like her non-stop speech. Please note: Kent underlined some passages in the book that unmistakably meant the most to him as reader and proof-reader. This title is a great book. This is the only such signed copy of the true First Edition/First Printing available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: Almost all other copies available online have serious flaws or are subsequent printings. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most important and influential American intellectual voices of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER CAMILLE PAGLIA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0300043961.
