Wyndell's friend, Wanda, is asking when are you going to "make up your mind to stop all of this madness and get a real job." Howard Risatti, Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art History at Virginia Commonwealth University: "Collectively, Francis' work can be seen as an attempt to represent that psychic landscape that is the mental space of the human mind; it is an attempt to show that while it is littered with trauma and pleasure, despair and hope, through the creative will anything is possible.

      (New York): Vincent FitzGerald, 1992. bound by Zahra Partovi in association with BookLab. in a nineteenth-century Hub style with black leather and dacron polyester ze. Fitzgerald, Vincent & Co.. folio. bound by Zahra Partovi in association with BookLab. in a nineteenth-century Hub style with black leather and dacron polyester ze. Unpaginated. No. 3 in an edition of 50 copies signed by the artist and the translator. and Kurt Weill. Translated by Michael Feingold. Etchings and Lithographs by Mark Beard. Printed on Rives paper. Watercolored. Lithography editions by Agnes Murray. Etchings editioned by Marjorie Van Dyke and Vincent FitzGerald at The Printmaking Workshop. Silkscreen editioned by Colorgirls. Collage executed by Zahra Partovi and Vincent FitzGerald. Letterpress printed at Wild Carrot Letterpress in Garamond. Calligraphy by Jerry Kelly. FitzGerald remembered Feingold had translated The Seven Deadly Sins of the Lower Middle Class, a short ballet with songs by Kurt Weill that dealt with the iconography of America. The story, which seemed perfect for Beard [to illustrate] concerns the moral tension between two sisters as they struggle to achieve their dream of building their pietistic family a home on the Mississippi River in Louisiana. Seven gatefolded pages introduce the personifications of each sin anger, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride and sloth. All elements of architecture and setting are etched, embossed and collaged behind the theatrical figures, which are executed in lithography. More than one hundred prints embellish the tale. A separate map made with pigment embedded into the paper by Dieu Donné, showing the continuous United States and identifying the seven cities of sin, the Mississippi River, the mansion in Louisiana, all silkscreened after an original watercolor by Beard, is cut, folded and bound separately. FitzGerald wanted the reader to be involved in the telling of the story, The project [took] four years to realize. "The song text and scenario of each sin is printed in twenty different colors, keyed to the psychological and moral tone of the writing; this required forty-six letterpress forms. " Beard specified the large size of the book which is elaborately bound." - A Catalogue Raisonné of the first 26 books published by Vincent FitzGerald & Company from 1981 pages 32 & 33.

        Pablo Escobar Gaviria en Caricaturas 1983-1991

      [Medellin, Columbia, 1992. Numerous plates reproducing political cartoons and photographs and drawings of Escobar (4 of them in color). [2]-377, [1] ll., printed rectos only. 4to. Original calf with facsimile signature and fingerprint in gilt. Minor foxing on a few leaves. Proof of the law's inability to constrain Escobar, surely comes in no stranger format than this self-published collection of political cartoons concerning the Colombian drug trade while serving time in his luxury prison, La Catedral.  Escobar is quite serious about the value of this work and states in the prologue: "El lengua figurativo de la caricatura representa una opinion, un criterio, un punto de vista personal y es por eso que hemos querido recopilar todos los pensamientos graficos y bajo este tema especifico de narrativa. Porque visualizar un concepto tan abstracto como un modo de pensar, va mas alla de la simple ridiculizacion de un a personaje o la simple expocision de los razgos caracteristicos; es darle vida propia a una imagen abstracta que reposa silenciosa en nuestra mentes." The book opens with a report on the Colombian government importing of cocaine and reprints a series of photographs of Escobar, some with his family and even some in prison. From there the wide-ranging caricatures satirise everything from politics, the mafia, religion, the United States, and even drug use in sport. According to an Escobar family member, most of the copies of the book were burned after Escobar's escape from the prison with only a handful of copies surviving the fire.  Rare. OCLC locates no copies, though the book does turn up now and again on a certain online auction site at predictably ludicrous prices.

        Booked to Die: A Mystery Introducing Cliff Janeway

      U.S.A.: Charles Scribner's Sons 1992 - BOOKED TO DIE, the first book in John Dunning's Cliff Janeway series, is one of the most popular mysteries among book collectors. Janeway is a book collector and rare book dealer, and Dunning is one of the few authors who gets the world of book collecting right. This first edition copy is clean and crisp enough to have come straight from the printer. It has had only one owner, and has been kept in a mylar dust jacket cover inside a non-smoking home. This copy is perhaps made more significant in that it is inscribed by Dunning to one of the country's most prominent mystery booksellers and her author then-husband. This is legitimately historic copy of a book important to book collectors around the world, and as clean and bright a copy as you're likely to see.
