Ronald Reagan
Reagan had a way of reaching out to people that made him friends across much of the political spectrum.

This letter obviously mattered to Reagan, who not only answered it but had the response hand-delivered. & & Autograph L … [Click Below for Full Description]

[JONES, SHIRLEY]
(London: Red Hen Press, 1992). Five folio sheets, plus a 4ff. quarto booklet. From an edition of seventy, this is one of twelve deluxe copies with an extra booklet containing a poem by Shirley Jones, aphorisms about cats selected by Jones, and a lovely miniature oval mezzotint of a curled-up sleeping cat. This is copy number one and has a personal inscription to friends of the artist. Each of the large mezzotints is numbered, titled, dated, and signed in pencil by the artist. Included in the set is a handwritten letter by Jones, on Red Hen Press letterhead paper, to the book's recipients. The five plates measure 15 by 12 inches and feature whimsical portraits of cats set against rich velvet-textured ebony backgrounds. The artist hand-set and printed the text in dark blue-green 24-point Baskerville italic type, on pale cream-colored uncut Rives mould-made paper. Housed in a light turquoise cloth drop-back box, which harmonizes with the type color. Jones, who specializes in mezzotint -- the most complex and time-consuming printmaking process -- has created a stunning set of prints. A beautiful, affectionate, and highly personal example of artistry, literature, and presentation by one Wales's leading book artists. Prospectus laid-in. Extremely fine.

FitzGerald & Co., Vincent. Brecht, Bertolt & Kurt Weill
New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Company. 1992. Limited to 50 copies only, all on Rives paper, each signed by the artist, Mark Beard, and translator, Michael Feingold, over 100 hand-collaged and water-colored images of etchings and lithographs, with each of the seven sins a separate gate fold. Printed letterpress in Garamond in at least 14 different colors by Dan Keleher at Wild Carrot Letterpress. Calligraphy by Jerry Kelly. Page size: 12-1/2 x 21 inches. Bound by Zahra Partovi in association with BookLab: cloth over boards, 3/4 leather spine, protective box with game board map of America.

The "seven deadly sins" are personified each on a gatefold page, using more than 100 prints to embellish the tale. The map of the United States is on paper by Dieu Donne with pigment embedded into the paper with the seven cities of sin silkscreened after an original watercolor by Beard. The reader / viewer must be involved in the book with the gameboard and detachable magnetized print elements that reveal themselves - to be removed and placed on the board - as the pages are turned. & THE SEVEN DEADLY ISNS OF THE LOWER MIDDLE CLASS was commissioned in 1933 by Tilly Losch, a famous Viennese dancer married … [Click Below for Full Description]
