        Photograph of Alexander Trocchi at the 1962 International Writers Conference

      [Edinburgh, 1990. Landscape-format monochrome photographic portrait, signed ("Peter Keen") on the lower right margin, dry mounted. 405 x 305 mm. Fine. Landscape-format monochrome photographic portrait, signed ("Peter Keen") on the lower right margin, dry mounted. 405 x 305 mm. Candid portrait photograph of Alexander Trocchi in profile, taken at the 1962 International Writers' Conference held at McEwan Hall, Edinburgh. The conference - which was on the subject of "The Novel Today" - was organized by the publisher John Calder and featured seventy writers from twenty countries. The conference gained some notoriety from the argument between Alexander Trocchi and Hugh MacDiarmid, the latter calling the former "cosmopolitan scum." Henry Miller and William Burroughs sided with Trocchi, who replied, "I am only interested in lesbianism and sodomy."The photographer, Peter Keen (1928-2009), was commissioned to record the event for THE SUNDAY TIMES. His other notable work includes portraiture - some in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery - and the photographic illustrations to Ted Hughes's RIVER (London, 1983).

        Mau-Mau on Paisley

      : , 1990 - A Stunning Original Watercolor"Mau-Mau on Paisley"IVORY, Lesley Anne, artist. "Mau-Mau on Paisley". [n.p., n.d., ca. 1990]. Original pen, ink and watercolor, signed and inscribed with title on reverse.Image size: 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches; 115 x 115 mm. Beautifully matted, framed and glazed. (Frame size: 11 3/4 x 11 3/4 inches; 299 x 299 mm.).A gorgeous illustration of "Mau-Mau", a grey cat, with a stunning paisley background. Beautifully framed with a cream quilted mat and metallic gold decand whiteorative ribbon border.Lesley Anne Ivory has gained her reputation as the world's most popular painter of cats by sustaining a superlative level of invention and craftsmanship. She studied at the art schools of St Albans, Watford and Luton, and, having gained the National Diploma in Design, taught at a school in Bedfordshire. Over a decade, she exhibited wood-engravings of wildlife at the Royal Academy, while creating an increasing demand for her card designs.Now married to the artist Evan Ivory and living in Hertfordshire, she works as a freelance designer and illustrator. As an illustrator, she has published many books, including Cats Know Best (1988), Meet My Cats (1989), Cats in the Sun (1991), Cats Among the Toys (1993) and Star Cats (1998). Never complacent, despite her secure position, she continues to test and stretch herself, both technically and conceptually, advancing by way of a balance between the observing eye and the designing hand. Though she is patiently fascinated by the appearance and behavior of cats, and studies their individuality with constant and precise attention, she is never content with providing a loosely delineated backdrop or with creating hastily sketched verisimilitude. She always thinks in terms of a complete pictorial design, drawing on her impressive knowledge of the history of design in order to extend her own visual language. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Folio, original half black morocco, green cloth boards, original black cloth slipcase. $2200.Signed limited first edition, number 225 of only 550 copies, illustrated with six rich photogravures, signed by Siskind in the colophon.“Through his use of form, emotional timbre, and iconography, SiskindÂ’s work reflects one manÂ’s struggle to understand his life in relation to the world. His imagery, on one level, is autobiographical, encompassing all the many political, social, sexual, aesthetic, and introspective observations of a long and complex life” (Carl Chiarenza). Whitman sees “paths worn in the irregular hollows by the roadside,” and the “flaggÂ’d walks of the cities.” Siskind interprets Whitman in his images of “tar poured into the cracks of light-colored concrete roads, forming swirls and curves and parallel lines.” Original prospectus laid in. A beautiful production in fine condition.

        The Seasons

      London: Orchard Books, 1990 - A Charming Original WatercolorA Children's Gardening LessonJOHNSON, Jane, artist. "The Seasons". Unused cover design for Our Garden Year. London: Orchard Books, 1990. Original pen, ink and watercolor illustration.Image size: 11 x 8 7/8 inches; 280 x 226 mm. Beautifully matted, framed and glazed. (Frame size: 18 x 15 3/4 inches; 457 x 400 mm.).A charming illustration depicting five children doing various garden activities throughout the year. Beautifully framed with a textured silk cream mat layered over a flower patterned fabric mat with a light pink ribbon border.Jane Johnson was born in London, and studied French at the University of East Anglia, graduating in 1973. She then worked as a designer of children's books, first for Hodder & Stoughton (1974-76), and subsequently for Jonathan Cape Ltd (1976-81). In her spare time, she developed her talents as a writer and illustrator, producing lithographs for The Folio Society's edition of Serghei Aksakov's A Russian Gentleman (1976). Her own first book, Sybil and the Blue Rabbit (1980), won the Owl Prize in Japan and runner-up for the Mother Goose Award. The success of the following, Bertie on the Beach (1981), encouraged her to become a full-time illustrator - of books, magazines and greetings cards. She was a part-time teacher of illustration at art schools in London (1983-85), and a sometime member of the Association of Illustrators.Johnson proved to be a sensitive and versatile artist, able to draw on a variety of visual styles in order to appeal to a range of juvenile audiences. Yet she sustained a desire to communicate her own pleasure in the historical past. While living in Washington DC between 1989 and 1995, she produced The Princess and the Painter (1994), set in the time of Velásquez, and My Dear Noel: The Story of a Letter from Beatrix Potter (1999).From the mid 1990s, Johnson concentrated on a contemporary style of books for very young children with a focus on strong, accessible images. More recent projects have seen Johnson move successfully from illustrating to writing, in providing texts for Gaby Hansen's illustrations in Are You Ready for Bed? (2002) and Little Bunny's Bathtime! (2005). She is currently enjoying a life of semi-retirement in London.
