        Midnight and Leather & Monstrous Fabrications (Original Holograph Manuscript)

      (Varner, Arkansas): None, Nd. Hardcover. Like New. Signed by Author. Original holograph manuscript. ["Midnight and Leather" title page + TOC], 1-29, ["Monstrous Fabrications" title page], 30, 31, 31(again)-40pp. Blue plastic ringbound notebook with handwritten 8.5" x 11" sheets inserted back-to-back in clear sheets, white sticker lettered cover. Fine. A holograph manuscript of poems by purported West Memphis Three ringleader Damien Echols, once on death row for the grisly murder of three boys in West Memphis, Arkansas in 1993. He was released in 2011 following new DNA evidence and years of publicity for his innocence including a series of popular documentaries (Paradise Lost), numerous books, songs, and a compilation album in 2000, Free the West Memphis 3. While the West Memphis Three have long been a cause celebre and their trial often cited as an example of a modern witch-hunt, their culpability is still debated to this day. The gothic, macabre voice of Echols' poems is unlikely to win-over his accusers. For instance, with his neat, spindly penmanship he writes the succinct poem "Pine Box": "In the old days / they placed coins / over the eyes / of the dead. / It was said / to prevent them / from looking around / for someone / to take their place." Other poem titles include "Bone Orchard," "Grimoire," "Swine," "The Hate that Jack Built," and "Bedlam's Marionette." They appear to have all been written while Echols was imprisoned; references to injustice, hypocrisy, impotence, and all-powerful shadowy forces abound. Bookmarks from Arkansas booksellers Bk Barn laid in at rear; recently they purchased the entire contents of two storage lockers in Little Rock, Arkansas owned by Echols and his wife Lorri Davis. This manuscript comes from the second locker. This specific volume is mentioned in a local news broadcast about their find. An apparently one-of-a-kind, handwritten and assembled collection of dark poems from a key figure in a very disturbing incident in recent American history.

        David

      Sherman Oaks California : Joe D'Ambrosio, 1993. Limited Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. As New/Slip Case . 10x13. Joe D'Ambrosio. One of 25 Copies (#1). In a binding of cast paper and white Masonic Sheepskin in a specially fitted side-hinged box of black cloth over archival boards. Hand printed on a Vandercook #4 letterpress. Opening leaves with striking dovetailed bas-reliefs of Michelangelo's sculpture of David, text with a variety of decorations and illustrations. This is the latest as well as the most delightful of D' Ambrosio's (1934 -2009) inimitable bibliophilic masterworks. Produced and partly written by D. Ambrosio, the book is done on handmade paper by Madeleine Pestiaux and contains photographs by Wallace Rhodes. The cast paper cover represents the marble slab out of which Michelangelo's David will emerge, and with each succeeding turned leaf at the beginning of the book, the reader sees the rock transformed, from a roughly hewn image at first and finally into the finished statue. The way in which these opening leaves demonstrate Michelangelo's notion that a sculptor discovers or reveals or brings out a statue from its confinement within a slab is absolutely delightful. Like D'Ambrosio"s other works, this oblong folio is cleverly designed and reflects a great deal of work and imagination. The typographic display of the various texts is expressive in itself as well as quite pleasing, and there is a good deal of decoration ( embossing, serigraphs, paste ons) within the text. The book is of obvious interest for its innovative design and charm, but the text, which occupies almost 70 pages, is substantial as well. It is a pastiche that consists of a kind of modern love story which finds resonance in poetry, mostly by Michelangelo, but also by S' Ambrosio and David Michael Soloman. The story and poems are displayed on the page in such a way as to indicate their interconnection. The whole package deals with the profoundly important variates of life: love of various kinds, sexuality, the pressure of societal values, freedom, and death. A magnificent tour-de-force by one of the great book artists. Also enclosed is an ALS by Joe asking two of his most fervent supporters ( my mother and father) what they thought about various aspects of the book, pricing, displaying etc. Signed by illustrator.
