Heyeck has put his methods to the test and emerged with a collection of some of the subtlest and most alluring marbling. This work joins previous Heyeck Press publications as a valuable reference book.

        Forest Song.

      Tokyo:: Epigone Press,, 1991.. Edition of 50. 9.5 x 13"; 22 pages. Printed on Mulberry paper. Woodcuts. Marbled paper pastedowns. Bound in paper covered boards with cloth spine. Stab binding. Art Hazelwood: "Forest Song is a book of 12 woodblock print images and 11 woodblock text images describing a subconscious journey through illness to restored health. The prints grew out of a period of illness in India. I was traveling for several months in Asia and found myself quite sick in Dharamsala, India, home of the Tibetan government-in-exile. There I stayed for two months being treated by Tibetan doctors and living in a hotel/monastery so that every morning at 3 a.m. I would awaken to the sound of chanting monks. A mysterious environment to be sinking into the lethargy of illness. The slow recovery and its accompanying sense of inwardness is the feeling out of which this series came. Although it shows no outward reference to the surrounding environment or my illness the prints are psychologically representative. The text was written by me to add to the atmosphere of mystery rather than as explanation.

He is one of the most prominent and respected promoters and chroniclers of mail art. Vittore Baroni has written of him, 'He has been called the James Boswell of mail art and indeed, like the renowned collaborator of writer Samuel Johnson, John Held Jr is the best biographer (and bibliographer) that postal art has ever known or might ever have desired.'

        The Way We Live Now

      London: Karsten Schubert, 1991. 6 coloured aquatints, with added tempera, by Howard Hodgkin (2 folding, 4 double-page). Original paper-covered boards, original blue paper chemise with orange tempera added by hand, protective tissue covering to binding, original publishers cardboard slip-case with printed title label on upper cover A fine copy of a work featured in Riva Castleman's survey of the best livre'd'artiste of the last century; John Updike included Sontag's story in his Best American Short Stories of the Twentieth Century. "This is a special work of art, a unique collaboration between two great artists in response to the AIDS crisis" (Castleman p.198). Castleman's description of Howard Hodgkin's etched aquatints as "lushly colored" is satisfyingly accurate: the project was evidently close to the artist's heart (he spent four years working on the images) and he clearly wanted to create a worthy visual accompaniment to this short story by Susan Sontag. The addition of tempera by hand ensures that each plate is unique, but Hodgkin's intention with the series was to illuminate both the emotional changes and, at a cellular level, the physical changes bought about by the disease. The overall result "achieves an optimistic effect, which strongly repudiates the horror and fear." (Castleman). Sonntag's short story, perhaps the greatest ever written on the subject, offers an honest and deeply-felt account of an AIDS sufferer, and human strength in the face of inevitable loss. The edition was limited to just 243 copies, numbered and signed by both the author and the artist, this copy is number 116 of 200 copies. "All proceeds from the sale of ...[the] book ... [were] given to AIDS charities in the United Kingdom and the United States". "The book is designed by Gordon House ... The pictures and end papers are original etchings by Howard Hodgkin. The etchings are printed in intaglio ... and hand painted in Sennelier tempera by Jack Shirreff ... The cover is hand painted in tempera ... the bookbinding is done by Dieter Schulke" (printed note at end). Castleman, A Century of Artists Books p.198.

        Correspondentie over gedichten voor een bloemlezing. Brieven aan Bert Natter van H.C. ten Berge, Rutger Kopland, Gerrit Kouwenaar, Lucebert, Hanny Michaelis, Hans Plomp, M. Vasalis en Daisy Wolthers.

      Handgeschreven (5 x) en getypt (3 x). Diverse formaten. Acht bladen totaal. Alleen recto. Gesigneerd en gedateerd '24.04.91', 'Glimmen, 19/5/91', '1071 KL Amsterdam, 14.4.1991', 'Bergen n.h. 18 April 1991', 'Amsterdam, 14 april 1991', '' resp. 'Roden 20-4-'91'.* Dichterspost aan Bert Natter, redacteur bij uitgeverij Kwadraat, voor de bij die uitgeverij te verschijnen bloemlezing Van niets dan lucht te leven. Een bloemlezing gedichten over de natuur en het milieu (1991). Alle dichters geven per brief toestemming voor opname van hun gedicht (Wolthers doet dat namens de erven Achterberg): ze zijn akkoord met het honorarium (f 35,-) en geven hun rekeningnummer op. Sommige brieven zijn kort en zakelijk, andere iets uitvoeriger.Gerrit Kouwenaar verzoekt Natter de zaak verder af te handelen met Querido. Hanny Michaelis wil graag 'een bewijsnummer' ontvangen. Hans Plomp schrijft (op bijzonder vezelig briefpapier) dat zijn gedicht 'Lofzang aan de Aarde' niet eerder gepublicerd is. De meest inhoudelijke brief is van Vasalis: zij wenst Natter succes met het initiatief: 'er is bijna niets dat mij zo zeer ter hart gaat'. Zij wijst de redacteur erop dat haar 'bank-naam' 'M. Droogleever Fortuyn Leenmans' is. In een PS vraagt de dichter zich af of het niet beter zou zijn voor 'Waterkant. Vroeger' de nieuwe spelling te gebruiken: 'Ik geloof dat die oude een zekere vervreemding geeft'.Een exemplaar van de bloemlezing is bijgevoegd (herdruk 2000).

        Flore Danoise

      Paris: Robert & Lydie Dutrou, 1991. Folio. (15 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches). Half-title and title in red, Text in French and Danish, printed in black with headings in red and black. 7 coloured plates by Alechinsky, each an "eau-forte originale sur facsimile de Flora Danica," each numbered and signed in pencil by Alechinsky. Unbound as issued in original limp paper wrappers, the upper cover with etched calligraphic decorated title printed in red and silver, plexiglass slipcase Fine copy: the edition limited to 165 copies signed by the author, this copy number 7 of the 125 copies for sale by the publishers. An approximate translation of the colophon: " Flore Danoiose , a poem by Michel Sicard - dedicated to his daughter Flora - and the Danish translation by Uffee Harder are both set by hand in 20 point Garamond type. The seven original etchings by Pierre Alechinsky are printed on facsimiles of plates from the 18th-century botanical work: Flora Danica." The excellent images - reminiscent of the work of Max Ernst - provide a fresh view of some of the more esoteric images from Flora Danica . The literary/artistic equivalent of cloud-imagined figures and landscapes, Alechinsky offers a sophisticated view which complements Sicard's text/poems to his daughter.

        Theologische Ethik. 5 Bände.

      Waltrop : Spenner, 1991. Reprint der 2. Aufl., Koelling, Wittenberg, 1869-1871. Originalleinen. Ein gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - Die geistige Unabhängigkeit der Theologischen Ethik zeugt von dem in Rothes Lebensgeschichte immer kräftiger und ihm selbst verläßlicher entwickelten freien Glauben. Rothes Theologie ist eine Einladung zum Christ-Sein, will - mit Luther - Leib und Seele, Augen, Ohren, und alle Glieder, Vernunft und alle Sinne öffnen für das Leben des Menschen im kommenden Gottesreich, wie es sich in der Kulturwelt entwickelt. Dieses Pathos von der \"christlichen Welt\" bestimmt seine Theologie. Rothe ist aber auch vom Pathos in einem anderen, spezifischen Sinn bestimmt. Er leidet an der Auswanderung des Bürgertums, zumal der Gebildeten, aus der Kirche. Er will ein Wortführer der bürgerlich-protestantischen Bildungsschicht sein und insofern kann man seine Theologie im Vorgriff auf ein Modewort gern eine \"Bürgerethik\" nennen. Daß Rothe sich dabei nicht in das für die meisten seiner gebadeten Zeitgenossen unbewohnbare Haus kirchlicher Dogmatik zurückzog, sondern die grundlegende Einheit des Christentums mit der modernen Welt schlichtweg voraussetzte, das hat ihm begeisterte Verehrer wie verwunderte Spötter bis heute gesichert.

Jerry's opening monologue to "The Parking Garage" episode (season 3, episode 6). A working copy with corrections. Have those Mall directory maps ever helped you find anything? Even if you can figure out where you are and wehere you want to go you still can't figure out which way to walk. What you need are suction cup feet so you can stand right on the face of the thing. And then you could figure our which way you want to head. "The GAP is this way" And they always have that little thing, "you are here". I always think when you walk away it switches to "you are gone". You go past again "you are back" Two weeks later "where have you been?"
