        A Fragile Walk.

      Camberwell, London 1990 - Number 2 of only 5 copies printed. A tribute to rampant imagination and a belief in the beauty of textures, both natural and man-made. The entire book is printed on coarse, thick handmade papers in several colors. Illustrations are bold, colorful, childishly simple, childishly devious. Carvings in wood, lead, copper and fibre attach themselves throughout in a multi-media romp. The binding consists of a course linen spine with leather strapping joining two large slabs of stained pine on which nail heads, industrial staples and sculpting in various metals recall in a parody the bindings in precious metals and stones of medieval manuscripts. Les Bicknell has worked at Camberwell, "the only college in the UK providing specialist postgraduate study in Book Arts." His work is included in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, The Rijksmuseum, and MOMA. Indeed, one copy of this title is in the Victoria and Albert Museum.

        Edwardian Golfer

      Italy, 1990. Original oil painting on copper. 22k gold leaf frame with brown crackle panel. Marco Ceri lives in Northern Italy where he paints in oil on copper pictures in a very specific genre all his own. They are paintings of English people engaged at polo, golf or tennis during the Edwardian era. A great deal of research provides a high degree of accuracy to every aspect of these scenes including, of course, the attire and sports equipment, but even the postures and demeanors of the participants. The accuracy of the elements however does not intrude on the overall delight expressed in these tableaux. The artist keeps a low profile, enjoying his virtual anonymity. He considers himself a craftsman, who by limiting his sphere of activity, brings that craft closer and closer to perfection. This work bears the alternate signature of the artist: "M.V.", which reflects the use of his middle initial.

        Blinds & Shutters [Deluxe, and only, edition]

      Genesis Publications, 1990. Deluxe Limited Numbered First Edition. Leather & Buckram. Fine/No Jacket as Issued. A beautiful Limited Numbered First Edition Signed by former Beatle, the late George Harrison and 10 other contributors of the 93 that contributed text and memories to this beautiful edition of photographs by Michael Cooper. Numbered 1000 out of 5000 Signed Limited Editions. The contributors who signed include Tariq Ali, Peter Blake, Colin Self, Bill Wyman, Adam Cooper, Larry Rivers, Gerard Malanga, Billy Al Bengston, Terry Doran and Neil Aspinall. Beautifully bound in leather and buckram in bright yellow & black with red page edges, the book is in fine unread condition. Enclosed in a fine silkscreened solander box, with an image inset on the top, each book's is different. This inset picture is, we believe, of a young Ronnie Wood, of The Faces, and latter the Rolling Stones, from a photograph on p.71of the book. Forewords by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards; Introduction by Terry Southern; Consultancy by Bill Wyman. The most stupendous rock and roll picture book ever assembled. Michael Cooper's superb photographs provide a unique insider's view of the Sixties. It was a prolific and exhilarating period of artistic cross-fertilization. For the first time in Britain the class barriers were really down; in London, everyone seemed to know everyone, and we were unaware how close The Rolling Stones and the Beatles were. Through his association with Robert Fraser and the Stones and The Beatles, Michael met the artists, writers, poets and musicians of the time and the courtiers around them. He introduced these people to each other. Many of those who brilliantly lit up the decade on both sides of the Atlantic were photographed by him. His most well known photographic assignment was the album cover for The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. A beautiful set and scarce when signed by George Harrison.

      Easthampton, MA: Cheloniidae Press, 1990. Unique copy bound by Mark Esser, from the Cheloniidae edition of125 copies, all on Cheloniidae Rag paper, the first book of the press with Cheloniidae watermark, each signed by the artist, Alan James Robinson. Page size: 10-3/8 x 15- 7/8 x inches - the size of the first folio edition of Shakespeare - Dedication Page, Half-title, engraved frontispiece portrait of Shakespeare in rondel surrounded by the animals, Titlepage, i-iii [iv-v] 1-87 [88-92]pp. Bound by Mark Esser: full dark green morocco "baggy-back" style binding providing unrestrained opening characteristics, leather onlays in black and gilt and blind tooling on front and back panels, design references theater seating, feathers, scales and the eyes and heads of birds. Title and author on inlaid tan inset with "The Birds and Beasts of" in black and "Shakespeare" in deep plum. The binder tells us that the binding structure calls to mind the Elizabethan era featuring typical late Renaissance elements, such as double flexible sewing with laced supports and linen primary endbands with laced cores and silk secondary sewing; all edges gilt, pale green headbands, deep plum doublures blind tooled with same design as covers; binding signed in blind stamp on lower rear turn-in, "Esser." Housed in brown cloth over boards custom-made clamshell box lined with suede. Selected as one of 25 "Distinguished Winners" in the 2013 Designer Bookbinders International Bookbinding Competition. Mark Esser's subtle, inventive design is, indeed, suggestive of theatre seats, as well as eyes and feathers (birds and beasts); it is an elegant binding. Illustrated with 54 woodengravings depicting the birds and beasts found in Shakespeare's plays and poems, plus two portraits of the Bard: one etching and one woodengraving. The woodengravings were accomplished by Robinson on end-grain English boxwood from T.N. Lawrence & Sons of London. The type was set at M & H Type Foundry of San Francisco and printed by Harold Patrick McGrath in black within a caramel-colored rule on each page with Shakespeare's own words in caramel ink. This book uses Shakespeare's original texts addressing the natural history, folklore, and mythology of the birds and beasts in his plays. The text was written by Arthur F. Kinney, Thomas W. Copeland Professor Literary History at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Certainly one of the most ambitious and most beautiful books of the Press worthy of a special binding.
