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

      [Cambridge, MA]: Druckwerk, 1990. First Edition. Wraps. Fine. Johanna Drucker. 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 Universitys 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 didnt 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. It includes a bibliography and price list of books for both authors, including Drucker's History of the/my Wor(l)d. 14.2cm x 21.8cm.

Preview of Prints by John Minihan during a launch of his book of Beckett (Photographed by Evening Standard photograph

      London / Athy / Paris, 1972 - 1990. - Original b/w photograph on archival paper. Different formats. From the library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. Most of them titled by John Minihan verso. With John's copyright-stamp verso. Most of the photographs in this collection unframed. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality; 'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing, 'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995); Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996); and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986; the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

        Présence Panchounette. L'Avant-garde a bientôt cent ans.- Catalogue édité par la Galerie de Paris (Eric Fabre) à l'occasion de l'exposition Présence Panchounette à la F.I.A.C. 1988 à Paris.

      Paris, Galerie de Paris (Eric Fabre), 12 juillet 1990. - 27,5 x 18,5 cm, 23 p., 3 ill. n&b, 6 ill. coul, papier indéchirable (tyvek). Cartonnage éditeur, papier aquarelle, belle couv. typog. en rouge et noir. Collectif créé à Bordeaux en 1969 et dissout en 1990, Présence Panchounette (Christian Baillet, Pierre Cocrelle, Didier Dumay, Michel Ferrière, Jean-Yves Gros, Frédéric Roux et Jacques Soulillou) a occupé la scène artistique avec des gestes provocateurs, contestataires et humoristiques, opérant toujours en dehors de l’opinion dominante, notamment du modernisme. Avec Présence Panchounette l’art devient un fourre-tout non soumis à la hiérarchie, un tohu-bohu esthétique. À l’automne 1988, participant à la Foire internationale d’art contemporain de Paris sur le stand de la Galerie de Paris, le groupe se propose de refaire, la plupart du temps à partir de la seule indication de leurs titres, des œuvres inventées à la fin du XIXe siècle par les artistes incohérents, alors pratiquement inconnus des historiens (même si l’on compte parmi eux Toulouse-Lautrec, Émile Cohl, inventeur en 1908 du premier dessin animé, et Alphonse Allais). Apparus entre 1882 et 1893, les arts incohérents ont élevé la blague, la dérision, le mélange des genres, au rang d’une activité à part entière, avec des sculptures en fromage, des aquarelles à l’eau de Seltz, des tableaux avec du pain, des petits pois ou du tabac. Dans ces œuvres que Félix Fénéon qualifiait de « follement hybrides » on décèle des gestes et attitudes intégrés par les avant-gardes postérieures (dadaïsme, surréalisme, Fluxus.). En hommage à ces artistes, mais un hommage dans lequel la parodie et le pastiche tiennent lieu de règle générale, Présence Panchounette a donc conçu en 1988 une quinzaine de pièces « incohérentes » absurdes, loufoques, rigolotes, qui témoignent que la légèreté n’est en aucune manière synonyme de manque de profondeur.

Through his philanthropic foundation, the Carson Scholars Fund, he strives to maximize the intellectual potential of every child. An internationally renowned physician, Dr. Carson has authored over a hundred neurosurgical publications and has been awarded more than sixty honorary doctorate degrees and dozens of national merit citations. Dr. Carson has written six best-selling books, and his fifth book, America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great, released in early 2012, made the New York Times Bestseller List.
