      Amsterdam, Netherlands: Willem Diepraam Studios, 1990 - 1st Printing. Signed. 1 pages. Published in 1990. Rare Silver-Gelatin Vintage Print of the classic Willem Diepraam photograph. Limited Edition of 15 signed, titled, and dated copies. Print size is 11 X 20 inches. It is elegantly framed in white matte stock paper and contrastingly rich dark wood frame. Full frame size is 29 X 23 inches. The back is mounted in Plexiglas in order to show the signature. The photograph is of a young boy being chased by a pack of wild dogs. The craggy, dotted landscape is streaked with long, undulating gray lines, as if by design, giving the image a powerful, abstract character. It looms over the tiny subjects and appears to envelop them, the Universal and the Particular merging as One. The photograph is named after the place where the incident actually took place, was witnessed, and captured permanently on film by Willem Diepraam (he will not reveal if the dogs caught up with the boy and killed him). As one has come to expect of a photographer who is both a moralist and a formalist, the image is an aesthetic triumph as well as a genuine evocation of unmitigated horror. One of his iconic images, it is beautifully reproduced as a doublespread in the monograph, "Willem Diepraam" (2001). Willem Diepraam is a Dutch photojournalist who has published several books in Europe, none of which is available here. Knowledge of his brilliant work is long overdue in the United States. An absolute "must-have" print for Willem Diepraam collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Edition, and it is very boldly and beautifully signed, titled, and dated in black ink-pen on verso (visible through the Plexiglas mounting on the back) by the photographer: "Willem Diepraam LOMO DE CORVINA, PANAMERICA SUR, LIMA, PERU, 1990" . This vintage print is a photography classic. All copies of the Limited Edition are now in private hands or public collections. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online, is elegantly framed, and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. It was obtained from Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago, the photographer's American gallery, and a Certificate of Provenance from us comes with the print. A rare signed print thus. One of the greatest living photographers. A flawless collectible print. (SEE ALSO OTHER WILLEM DIEPRAAM TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Diebold Schillings Spiezer Bilderchronik.

      Luzern, Faksimile Verlag 1990. - Folio. 808 S. (Faksimile) u. XI, 599 S. (Kommentarbd.). Mit 344 meist ganzs., originalgetreu reproduzierten Bildern. Weisser, blindgepr. Orig.-Pergamentbd. mit geprŠgten Metallapplikationen und 2 Schliessen sowie Orig.-Halbpergamentbd. mit RŸckenschild. Faksimile-Ausgabe der Handschrift Mss. hist. helv. I. 16 der Burgerbibiliothek Bern. - Mit Kommentarband, hrsg. von Hans Haeberli und Christoph von Steiger. - Die hervorragenden Bilder machen vorliegende Chronik zum kŸnstlerisch wertvollsten Band seines gesamten Schaffens. Dieses letzte Werk Schillings entstand als privates Auftragswerk fŸr einen Berner Beamten und behandelt die Chronik der Stadt Bern von ihren AnfŠngen bis ins Jahr 1465. Der einzigartige Bilderschmuck in schwungvollen Federzeichnungen zeugt von der gestalterischen und erzŠhlerischen Kraft des Buchmalers. Der einzigartige Bilderschmuck macht Schillings letzte Bilderchronik zur Kršnung seines umfangreichen Werkes als Geschichtsschreiber. Die schwungvollen Federzeichnungen, welche in vielerlei Abstufungen mit Lasurfarben koloriert sind, haben sich weitgehend von der Kompositionsweise frŸherer Bilderchroniken gelšst. AuffŠllig ist die gestalterische Kraft, mit der es der Zeichner versteht, das Geschehen wirkungsvoll zu inszenieren, Haupt- und Nebenhandlungen aufeinander abzustimmen und Vorder- und Hintergrund miteinander zu verbinden. Oft wird manchmal nur durch ein Fenster im Hintergrund der bezaubernde Ausblick auf eine entfernte Landschaft gewŠhrt, der den dramatischen Ereignissen im Vordergrund einen lyrischen Gegenpol entgegensetzt. Dem Text entsprechend nimmt die Schilderung des Kriegsgeschehens auch bei den Chronikbildern breiten Raum ein. Mittelpunkt der Chronikbilder sind stets die handelnden Personen, die oft zu zwei einander gegenŸberstehenden Gruppen verwoben sind. Proportionen und Kšrperhaltung der Figuren zeugen von der bemerkenswerten FŠhigkeit des KŸnstlers, die menschliche Anatomie korrekt wiederzugeben. Die Bildausstattung wurde speziell auf den Auftraggeber Rudolf von Erlach zugeschnitten. Ruhm und Ehre der Familie sollten zum Ausdruck kommen und fŸr Familie und Nachwelt festgehalten werden. - Tadellos sauberes Exemplar. Lang de

        Archive of Original Photographs and Autograph Letter Signed

      [c. 1990] - Sixteen original pieces of horror art (including one print and one set of contact sheets, in addition to photographs) by Potter, one of the most renowned contemporary fantasy artists. Potter uses traditional darkroom techniques to generate startling, often erotic, mind-bending, sensual images with both dramatic shock value and a dark sense of foreboding. His art has illustrated works by J.G. Ballard, Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, Poppy Z. Brite, Lucius Shepard, Ramsey Campbell, Clive Barker, William Gibson, William Burroughs and others. Poppy Z. Brite and Lydia Lunch are among his most frequent models. All of the photographs in this collection are from an unpublished book on his work. Most are 11" x 14", and most are signed by Potter. Together with an autograph letter signed by Potter to the would-be editor of the book, Stanley Wiater. Two pages, in which Potter weighs in on the idea of a dark fantasy children's book and works out the medium for an interview with Wiater. A fine collection from a work that was scuttled by the publisher and will never see light of day. Unique. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Page size: 12-1/8 inches x 5-1/8 inches. Bound: blue cloth over boards hand-printed in black by d&#39;Arbeloff, binding executed by Jen Lindsay, collograph endpapers by d&#39;Arbeloff. Housed in a hinged triptych "stage-box" designed by d&#39;Arbeloff and executed by Dorset Bookbinding Co., covered in mulberry Japanese paper with decorated side panels containing the book and cassette recording of the play. The box opens to an original etching, framed by the box, by d&#39;Arbeloff with the title, author and artist. Box size when folded: 13-3/16 inches x 11-15/16 inches x 2-1/16 inches. The 40-page text is handwritten in red and black calligraphy by Sally Johnson, printed by photo litho by Atelier Rosenstiel The images within the book were printed by d&#39;Arbeloff from collograph plates with relief and intaglio images over text..

The cassette recording of the play was produced and recorded October 4, 1979 at Elephant Recording Studio, London, with Charles Turner in the role of Fungus and Jack le White as Curmudgeonly. The play, "Fungus & Curmudgeonly," was written in 1976 and performed for the first time at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival that year then in Stratford-upon-Avon at the Macbeth Room, Shakespeare Hotel in summer 1977. Gerardo Guerrieri, Theatre Critic for "Il Giorno" Milan wrote, "...The play emerges as a formidable parody of Homo Shakespearianus, to be put in a Museum of Natural History. The Man-Showman, half actor with his unstoppable desire for applause...and half voyeur...The play has density, authenticity and originality..." This is certainly one of d&#39;Arbeloff&#39;s most important works. She has had a one- woman show at the Victoria and Albert and her books are in the Tate, Rijksmuseum Meermanno Westreenainum, Kunstgewerbe Museum, Biblioteca Nazionale, Australian National Library, Library of Congress, Newberry, Bridwell, Humanities Research Center, Houghton, Firestone, Grunwald Center, etc. <br>See an <A HREF= >Image.</A><br>
