        HORST: FORM

      Altadena, CA: Twin Palms Publishers, 1992. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/As New Dust Jacket.. Altadena, CA: Twin Palms Publishers, 1992. Hardcover. As New/As New. First Edition/First Printing. 156 pages. Retrospective collection of the photographer&#39;s work. One of the most beautiful photography books of the last decade of the 20th century. Limited Edition of 5000 copies. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. An austerely elegant production by Jack Woody: Oversize-volume format. Gray silk cloth boards with blue titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Horst P. Horst. Each plate is 10 X 15 inch in size and reproduced on the right-hand side only. List of Plates, Biography, and Bibliography appended at the end. Printed in gravure on thick coated stock paper in Tokyo, Japan to the very highest standards. The gravure printing is stunning in the way it brings out Horst&#39;s dramatic effects and attention to the smallest details. In publisher&#39;s original shrinkwrap. In pristine cream DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents the photographer&#39;s finest and most representative work from a lifetime of indefatigable work, immense success, and international fame. The most prodigious disciple (and lifetime companion) of the German-born expatriate George Hoyningen-Huene, one of the five or so greatest lifestyle/fashion photographers of the 20th century (the others being Alexey Brodovitch, Irving Penn, and Avedon), Horst quickly became famous as the man who refined and perfected the Vogue Look. Horst was a restless photographer who tried his hand at everything: Fashion, still life, male and female nudes, celebrity portraits, travel, lifestyle, even landmark and architecture. He will be remembered for having produced several lasting masterpieces in all of them. Among the portraits he took, the list is staggering, and surely owes in part to the fact that Horst was himself a handsome and cultivated man-of-the-world who attracted his subjects effortlessly. His nudes are both classic and erotic, showing and concealing at the same time, in order to bring out the contours of the human body, male and female, in all its seductive contour and sensuous appeal. At his very best, Horst was simply the best. A great book, this is a "must-have" title for Horst collectors. <b><i> This title has been out-of-print for more than fifteen years and is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies of the First Limited Edition still available online, is still in the publisher&#39;s original shrinkwrap, and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. Many copies available online have major flaws. A rare copy thus. </b></i> 75 gravure plates. One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A flawless collectible copy. . ISBN 0944092098.

        The Warrior Ant. Etchings by Susan Weil

      Vincent FitzGerald & Company New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Company. 1992. Artist's book, one of 40 copies only, all on handmade paper by Paul Wong of Dieu Donne Papermill, each copy signed by the artist, Susan Weil, and author, Lee Breuer. Page size: 10 x 10 inches. Bound: handmade paper wrappers in custom box by BookLab, fine. The etchings were editioned by Marjorie Van Dyke and Vincent FitzGerald at The Printmaking Workshop and the text printed letterpress in Bembo by Dan Keleher at Wild Carrot Letterpress. The calligraphy is by Jerry Kelly. Lee Breuer, one of the pre-eminent figures in contemporary theater, was a former chair of the Directing Department at Yale University's School of Drama. He was commissioned by the Next Wave Festival of the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) to write the libretto for an opera by composer Bob Telson, to be staged as part of the innovative productions of this theatre arts festival in 1983. The opera THE WARRIOR ANT has been recorded by Gramavision titled AN ANT ALONE. This is dramatist Lee Breuer's second collaboration with composer, Bob Telson; the first was a staging of Robert Fitzgerald's version of Sophocles' second Theban play, THE GOSPEL AT COLONUS which was also staged at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Next Wave Festival. Breuer is the founder of Mabou Mines, an experimental theater group, which has mounted Breuer productions of DOLL'S HOUSE, RED BEADS, and PETER AND WENDY, among others. Breuer has been awarded OBIE's for "Best Play, "Best Production," "Directing," "Lifelong Achievement" as well as grants from CAPS, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Rockefeller Foundation, Guggenheim Foundation, as well as Fulbright and MacArthur Fellowships. Susan Weil, an American artist who studied with Josef Albers at the famous Black Mountain College and later in NY at the Art Student's League, was active in experimental artistic developments and was closely associated with such artists as Rauschenberg, Johns, Merce Cunningham, and John Cage. Together with her first husband, Robert Rauschenberg, she published "Blueprints," a series of works which contained figurative and abstract elements drawn from realms of dance, performance, and ready- mades, all of which influenced her future artistic evolution. Her juxtaposition of figurative and abstract elements, her creative use of collage, as well as the pictorial qualities of the various materials she uses for their sculptural potential are highlights of her work. All these elements are present in THE WARRIOR ANT, an intriguing continuum of text and images where the viewer wishes to move forward and yet backward sampling fresh pleasures from the pages each time they are viewed. Once again, Vincent FitzGerald has integrated an avant-garde collaboration in the performing arts with the book arts, rewarding the reader / viewer with text, images, and concepts that challenge and intrigue.
