        24 Nights / Twenty Four Nights. The Music of Eric Clapton. The Drawings of Peter Blake.

      Guildford: Genesis Publications, 1991., 1991. LIMITED EDITION, SIGNED by Eric Clapton and Peter Blake. Slim Quarto. Colour plates and illustrations. Book and scrapbook, with additional material. Original green morocco boards, gilt edges, together with a laminated stage pass, guitar picks, and a pack of guitar strings, plus limited double CD '24 Nights', the whole contained in custom-made clamshell box with card tray. A fine production, as expected from Genesis, the pioneers of high quality art-rock publications. 24 Nights is a unique collaboration between Eric Clapton, Peter Blake and Derek Taylor. Issued to commemorate Eric Clapton's record 24-night performance at the Royal Albert Hall in 1991. Peter Blake's scrapbook is a collection of pencil sketches, charcoal drawings and montages showing Eric and the band during rehearsals and performances. Blake was the Associate Artist of the National Gallery and is probably best known for his graphic cover of The Beatles' 'Sergeant Pepper' album cover. A vast selection of original memorabilia from the concert tour including back stage passes, hotel room lists, polaroid photographs, seating plans, set lists, laminates and sheet music are reproduced in the scrapbook, many of them tip-ins pasted in by hand. The scrapbook is accompanied by a commentary book by Derek Taylor. Taylor attended rehearsals in Dublin, performances at the Royal Albert Hall and the after-show party. His account provides a unique insight into the backstage and on-the-road world of Eric Clapton and his band. A former publicist for the Beatles' Apple Corps (as well as the Mamas and Papas, The Beach Boys and The Byrds), Taylor was one of the most influential music industry professionals of the time. His commentary offers the reader a rare opportunity to experience an insider's perspective on the man who is universally recognised as the world's greatest blues guitarist, labelled 'God' during his time with John Mayall, Cream, and Blind Faith in the mid to late sixties. Fine throughout, with a couple of tiny marks to box. A very early pop title from Genesis, who have published well in excess of 50 music books; preceeded only by I Me Mine (1980), Fifty Years Adrift (1984), Twenty Years Ago Today (1987), Songs by George Harrison (1987) and Blinds and Shutters (1990).

        Rehbock" originales Ölgemälde auf Malpappe ca. 44x35cm; links unten signiert und datiert "1902" [Maße im aufwendig gearbeiteten und blattvergoldeten Holzrahmen (60x51cm) der renommierten Münchner Fachwerkstatt Petzenhammer.]

      - "Sein Ziel war primär nicht, Schafe und Rinder zu malen, sondern jedwedes Objekt in Licht und Luft. Er wollte das Licht und die Luft malen. In seinen Bildern sollte man die jeweils dort herrschende Temperatur ablesen können. Licht und Luft als solche sind unmalbar. Aber die Harmonie der das Bild ausmachenden Farben und vor allem der durch die Farbtönung vermittelte Tiefen- und perspektivische Eindruck machen Licht und Luft erkennbar. Zu seiner Zeit war Zügel ein Avantgardist. Als er mit etwa 17 zu malen begann, malte er die Dinge so, wie sie sind. Sein Optimierungswille führte ihn ab der achziger Jahre zur Darstellung der Dinge, wie sie dem Betrachter in Licht, Luft und Schatten erscheinen. Er galt als "modern". Kaiser Wilhelm II. durcheilte einen Saal mit Zügelbildern mit der Hand vor den Augen und der Bemerkung: Ich kann das moderne Zeug nicht leiden. Heute gilt Zügel als altmodisch, weil er sich treu geblieben ist und Experimente unterließ. . Er sah die Aufgabe der Kunst nicht darin, Häßliches, Grausiges, Obszönes und Schreckliches darzustellen. Schlimm genug, daß es solches gibt. Aber das auch noch malen? Ob er nicht vielleicht doch recht hatte?" [Franz Hegenbarth: Heinrich von Zügel zum 50. Todesjahr; Ausstellungkatalog Gemälde-Cabinett-Unger; München 1991]"

        Une guerre. Livre unique entièrement peint. Signé par l'artiste.

      Paris, chez l'artiste, 1 août 1990 - 28 février 1991. - 23 x 18 cm, 11 f. format croissant. Peint à la main. Reliure de l'artiste, couv. peinte avec le titre, 11 ff. double coffret. Livre unique, entièrement peint à la main par Kate Van Houten (née en 1940). L'artiste américaine a préparé et cousu le papier de ce livre le 1er août 1990, jour de l'invasion du Koweit par l'Irak. Chaque page est peinte à la main et égrène les dates et lieux des batailles de la Guerre du Golfe. C'est par pur hasard que le dernier jour de l'opération Tempête du désert a correspondu à la dernière page du livre. Sommaire : Kate Van Houten (New-York, 1940) a étudié l’histoire et les langues étrangères aux USA, avant de poursuivre des études de sculpture à Milan. Sur la route du retour vers les Etats-Unis, elle passe par Paris, où elle décide de vivre. Elle apprend la gravure sur cuivre et sur zinc et la sérigraphie dans l’atelier 17 de Hayter. Kate Van Houten travaille à partir d’une idée qui se traduit en geste, et prend souvent ses sculptures pour modèle de ses oeuvres sur papier, tandis que son travail sérigraphique se rapproche du paysage, avec ce sentiment des grands espaces américains qui lui manquent parfois.

        La bandera invisible

      Ediciones Palabra, S.A. 06/1991 - 272 p. 18x11 cm La bandera invisible, que fue saludada como una obra maestra cuando se publicó, nos habla de las dificultades de la atención médica en campaña con un vigor narrativo, una sencillez y una compasión que la hacen única en su género. Peter Bamm escribió desde dentro de la poderosa maquinaria bélica alemana mostrando sus contradicciones, sin ocultar la responsabilidad de la Wehrmacht en los crímenes del nazismo; pero se ocupó también de otros aspectos: de cómo la humanidad y la camaradería afloran en las condiciones más duras, incluso entre enemigos; de las penalidades que debió soportar la población civil durante la guerra o de la belleza y el rigor de la estepa rusa. . . La bandera invisible es un libro conmovedor, que recoge los hechos de hombres y mujeres que, en medio de la atrocidad de la guerra, decidieron caminar bajo «la bandera de la humanidad», aquella que ampara a quienes con hechos silenciosos son capaces de sacrificarse por los demás.
