        [Scrapbooks]: Taiwanese Bin Lang Girls and Betel Nut Advertising

      1990. Near Fine. Two scrapbooks. Large square quartos. Screwbound red leather boards decorated in black and gilt, one with applied illustration, the other with an applied business card. Stiff card leaves with adhesive backing and plastic (mylar?) overleaves. Each page contains various images of sexualized women, probably cut from boxes of betel nuts, as well as other panels of the boxes with printed advertising. Also included are many flattened betel nut boxes adhered (but removable) to the page. A few of the images have been laminated. Interspersed with the other material are a few newspaper articles or headlines about the betel nut and its influence of Taiwanese society ("Son of betel-nut vendor rocks in Taiwanese," "Taiwan to lift import ban on betel nut," "Betel nut boy dies in flurry of police fire," "Betel: the Chinese chewing gum"). Approximately 350 scrap elements are present. Small scrape on the front board of one volume, a few of the last pages of one album are a bit dampstained but not substantially damaged, overall condition to both the scrap elements and the binders is very good or better,A most curious collection. Betel nut, also known as bin lang or areca nut, is actually the seed of the areca palm and is the second largest crop in Taiwan after rice. In Taiwan and other parts of Asia, chewing the nut is similar to chewing tobacco in the West, complete with many of the same negative health implications including various oral cancers. The nut is also a mild intoxicant. The standard advertising for the nuts was to use photos of women known as "Bin lang girls" on the boxes, either barebreasted or dressed in sheer underwear or lingerie, often with visible public hair. Additionally Bin lang girls served as retailers of the nuts, selling them to motorists or passersby from small glass kiosks, dressed in revealing outfits. Other masculine iconography was also used on the boxes: the logos of Playboy and Ian Fleming's 007, as well as a Bin lamg girl in a New York Yankee's cap are evident here. Reformers in Taiwan, in efforts to clean up the streets (chewing the nut is accompanied by the steady spitting of the noxious and blood red betel juice) have made the lot of the Bin lang girls difficult, attempting to drive them from the public eye, and in some cases charging them with prostitution or other morals charges. As of 2007 they were completely driven from TaipaI City, but stiill operating elsewhere in the country.

        Walt Disney's Bambi, The Story and The Film, (WITH) Bambi, The Flip Book (BOTH books SIGNED by Ollie Johnston, Frank Thomas, Marc Davis, Maurice Noble)

      New York: Stewart, Tabori & Chang [1990]. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. Johnston, Ollie and Thomas, Frank. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. 208 p. Signed by Author(s). Both the book and the companion flip book are signed by animators Ollie Johnston, Frank Thomas, Marc Davis, and Maurice Noble. Johnston, Thomas, and Davis were there of Walt Disneys' Nine Old Men, and Marc Davis developed and animated the characters of Bambi and Thumper. Maurice Noble was with Disney Studios for the early part of his career and worked on the development of the Bambi film. Who amongst us has not either read the book by Felix Salten, published in the 1920s, or seen the film done in 1942? As the authors wrote, "From the start, 'Bambi' was a very different picture. It had a fantasy and reality all its own, separate from Walt Disney's other films. This was no imaginary forest that one could enter and leave at will. Whoever ventured in became part of an experience so strong that neither heart nor mind could ever forget its impact". This book bridges the worlds between the book and the film, and invite us into the world in which the authors and animators worked and lived every day: how to bring the magic of the book and the story onto the big screen. Apparently Walt Disney himself envisioned such a book, for the authors dedicated the book to him with the following words: "We dedicate this book to Walt Disney, who asked for it fifty years ago....Sorry, Walt - you always said we were slow". *** THE FLIP BOOK: We are offering this set together, as they were originally sold and as they were meant to be. BOTH VOLUMES ARE SIGNED BY ALL FOUR ARTISTS. The companion Flip Book displays short animation sequences for Bambi (Ollie Johnston), Thumper (Frank Thomas), Friend Owl (Eric Larson) and Bambi as the grown buck (Milt Kahl). ***DESCRIPTION: BAMBI - red cloth boards with title embossed on the front, silver lettering on the spine, pictorial endpapers (etchings of Bambi's head), four artist's signatures on the half-title page, pictorial frontispiece, title page in royal purple and black with small vignette of Bambi and Thumper, the volume is replete with vintage photographs, drawings and etchings. Dust jacket shows a single animation cell on the front depicting Bambi, Thumper and Flower, summary of the book on the front flap, author bios on the back flap, 208 pages. FLIP BOOK is softbound with pictorial cardboard wraps that mirror the dust jacket on the front, four artist's signatures on the title page, no text as all pages are devoted to the animation, statement on the back wrap stating the volume is not for individual sale, unpaginated, comprised of 48 leaves, 16 mo. ***CONDITION: The main volume, BAMBI, is in absolutely pristine condition with no flaws that we can detect, including being free of prior owner markings. The unclipped (but not priced) dust jacket shows a small amount of sunning to the front near the spine, else fine. The FLIP BOOK is fine with no creases or edgewear at all, it appears to be unread and is also free of prior owner markings. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please contact seller for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Gio Ponti. The Complete Work 1923-1978.

      The MIT Press 1990. First American edition., Cambridge, Massachusetts - Cloth-bound boards, dust jacket. 288 pages. With 630 illustrations, 90 in colour. 1.9kg. English. Very good; faint toning to edges of jacket, light wear to head and base of spine and forecorners; a few small marks to front free-endpaper and the glue residue from previous price sticker, otherwise clean. A scarce copy of what remains the most comprehensive book on Gio Ponti, written by his daughter. 'This is the first complete survey and thematic profile of one of the most accomplished and prolific Italian architects of the twentieth century. From the Richard-Ginori chinaware and the founding of Domus magazine in the 20s to the Pirelli tower erected in Milan in the 50s and the 'facade' architecture of the 70s, Gio Ponti has been a major force in the shaping of Italian architecture and design. Gio Ponti: The Complete Work presents a fully illustrated decade-by-decade account of Ponti's vast output in interior and industrial design. The entire photographic archive of Ponti's studio, together with his unpublished writings, were made available in the preparation of this book. Here revealed are many new photographs of his work and a selection of his writings. A biographical profile, bibliography, and chronologies of works, exhibitions and sales complete this stunning book.' (from the blurb).

William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was both an Irish poet and ardent nationalist; he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923, shortly after Ireland gained independence. Helen Vendler says of Yeats in her insightful introduction that he was "one of the most gifted, driven, and complex figures of twentieth-century art and politics". With six etchings by Richard Diebenkorn (1922-1993), abstract artist and winner of the National Medal of Arts in 1991; for this volume he "took the Yeatsian theme of an empty coat on a hanger to produce a series of prints transforming the garment from a representational frock-coat into an abstracted suit-bag. The sixth etching is a double map of Ireland, indicative of that divided country" (from web site of Arion Press). ***DESCRIPTION: Quarter bound in red goatskin with gilt lettering on the spine, boards covered in evergreen cloth, limitation statement at the front with artist's signature in pencil, this no. 155 of 400 copies for sale, title page in red and black, poem titles in red; quarto size (approximately 10.25" tall), pagination: (i)-xxv being the preliminary pages and the introduction, (1)-171, blank (172), colophon (173).

        History of the/my Wor(l)d WITH: Johanna Drucker and Brad Freeman: Books (New York: Interplanetary Productions, 1993)

      Druckwerk 1990 - One of 70 signed and numbered by Drucker. This copy from the collection of master printer Ruth Lingen. Drucker is known both as an academic and as the author of a prodigious number of artists’ books, many of them exploring, as does History of the/my Wor(l)d, typography as both word play and as a means of altering the meaning of a text."I came across the image of a drum majorette in Harvard University’s collection of paper cuts. My mother, who had died suddenly several years earlier, had been a majorette, and the poignancy of recognition prompted me to produce a work in her memory. It is not maudlin but wry, edgy, and celebratory in the critical vein that had been her manner. This book is a feminist rewriting of the history of the world and also a critique of feminist orthodoxies about language and patriarchy. I didn’t experience language as exclusively patriarchal because it was so bound up in my connection to my mother. In the book, the large black text tells world history, and the smaller red text that breaks through the black recalls my experience of learning language with my mother" (The Book as Art: Artists’ Books from the National Museum of Women in the Arts, p.73)."Drucker's autobiography becomes a kind of hypertext, a set of possible verbal-visual paths that suggest further possibilities in the writing of her story" (Marjorie Perloff, Harvard Library Bulletin)."A striking alternative to the familiar telling of historical events, Drucker's account of mythic and major events in the course of western civilization marches roughshod over received traditions. The combination of typographic innovation, visual puns and linguistic play are unique elements of her style. A richly suggestive work interweaving official history and individual memory" (When will the book be done 38).This book was reissued in an edition of 1000 copies by Granary Books in 1995.Letterpress printed in red and black in Caslon on Warren's Lustro dull. Bound in printed handmade paper wraps. Edition of 70; this copy number 30, signed by Drucker. 26cm x 33cm.Johanna Drucker and Brad Freeman: Books is a catalog of a "book launching" for Otherspace, a collaborative artists' book by Johanna Drucker and Brad Freeman, held May 26, 1993 at Printed Matter Bookstore at DIA, NY, NY.
