        Bone Songs.

      Newark, Vermont:: Janus Press,, 1992.. Edition of 150. 10.25 x 8 x 2"; 40 French-folded unnumbered pages including covers. Eighteen polymer relief prints from drawings by Ruth Fine. Poems set in 10 pt Gill Sans Light caps. Colophon set in 8 pt italic caps. Gutter repeat columns set in 8 pt italic lower case. Text printed damp from magnesium plates in black on Barcham Green Royal Watercolour Society paper. Completely non-adhesive binding using MacGregor-Vinzani calendered ivory abaca paper. Housed in a two-sided slipcase of Barcham Green Renaissance paper and drum vellum. Califia Books: "Poems written by Clifford Burke in response to line drawings by Ruth Fine. In 1990, Fine sent her drawings of animal skulls to Burke and asked him to write poems to go with them. Text and image transport us into the realm of spirit and nature, reminded of Native American lore as we would be by bleached skulls in a dry desert – a liminal world of spirit and earth. The construction and presentation of this book are exceptional. "Each deckled sheet was printed whole with two drawings and two blocks of text, then folded in four and bound together with paper strips for alternating spreads of text and image. The paper stripping forms a spine at the center of the illustrated pairs of pages. The two word titles of the poems – 'Fire Song,' 'Wind Song,' 'Root Song' – straddle the fold, printed in a tiny point size and repeated in vertical columns, an echo that anchors the page without overwhelming it. Thus, the book opens like a series of spread wings. Letterpress in a delicate, capitalized san serif font that reflects the quality of the line drawings. Printed on thick, handmade paper the color of sun-bleached bones. Housed in a two-sided slipcase made of folded paper and folded skin the texture of a drum.

        Sally Mann: Immediate Family (First Printing)

      Aperture Foundation, Inc, New York 1992 - First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Black paper-covered boards with title stamped in silver on black cloth-covered spine, with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs and text by Sally Mann. Afterword by Reynolds Price. Designed by Wendy Byrne. Unpaginated (44 pp.), with 60 duotone plates beautifully printed on heavy coated paper in Italy by Mariogros Industrie Grafiche, Spa, Turin. 9-3/4 x 11-3/8 inches. Published on the occasion of the traveling exhibition "Sally Mann: Immediate Family," organized by Aperture and opening in 1992 at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia. Near Fine (inscription on inside front cover, else Fine) in Near Fine dust jacket (light wear to the extremities, else Fine). From the publisher: "Taken against the Arcadian backdrop of her woodland home in Virginia, Sally Mann's extraordinary, intimate photographs of her children-- Emmett, Jessie, and Virginia-- reveal truths that embody the individuality of her immediate family and ultimately take on a universal quality. Mann states that her work is 'about everybody's memories, as well as their fears,' a theme echoed by Reynolds Price in his eloquent, poignantly reflective essay accompanying the photographs in Immediate Family. With sublime dignity, acute wit, and feral grace, Mann's pictures explore the eternal struggle for autonomy-- the holding on, and the breaking away. This is the stuff of which Greek dramas are made: impatience, terror, self-discovery, self-doubt, pain, vulnerability, role-playing, and a sense of immortality, all of which converge in Sally Mann's astonishing photographs."

      - Wonderful folk art-ish paintings of Indian musicians, craftsmen, dancers, etc. 8vo. 22.5 by 18.5 cm. 12 leaves, with four paintings mounted onto the rectos of each of these leaves. Mica painting has a long tradition as a technique for artists to trace existing works. The type of mica paintings here, representing occupations, ceremonies and artistic performances, were made exclusively for European patrons, most typically, employees of the East India Company, as momentos of their time in India. (See M. Archer, "Company Paintings, Indian Paintings of the British Period", published by the Victoria and Albert Museum, 1992, pp. 193-201.) The leaves are thick, almost of a card stock, yet heavily toned and verging on brittle. The paintings were mounted with a glue which unsurprisingly left an impression visible behind the clear mica. A number of the paintings had become detached and were remounted, and generally the paintings are just loosely attached and without care any of them could become loose. The leather binding is scuffed and has a good amount of rubbing, especially along the edges, and a few abrasions. The boards, which are original, are of morocco, while the spine is from a rebacking and is a calf. Nonetheless, the match between the two works rather well. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
