        Livers des Artistes.

      Fairfax, CA Jungle Garden Press 1994 - Quarto. (18)ff. One of only three copies, signed by the illustrator, Carl Dern, and the printer, Marie Dern. A portfolio of eight pieces of original art by Carl Dern, mixing printing, watercolors, pen drawings, and collage. Playing with the concept of the livre d'artiste, or artist's book, the tongue-in-cheek illustrations interpret the work of eight famous modern artists, incorporating a representation of a human liver into the artists' works. For Georgia O'Keefe, the liver wears a pair of antlers and floats in the sky over a desert landscape, and in an interpretation of Georges Seurat, the liver becomes the exaggerated bustle of a women with a parasol. For Kurt Schwitters, the liver is decorated with a collage of found objects. Also included are parodies of Joan Miró, René Magritte, Eva Hesse, Frida Kahlo, and Joseph Beuys. Each illustration is preceded by a page bearing the name of the artist, letterpress printed by Marie Dern. A copy of this book was featured in the 2002 exhibition "Revealing the Mysteries: The Development of the Artist's Book in the Bay Area," at the San Francisco Center for the Book. The loose sheets are housed in a purple clamshell box designed by Dominic Riley. In a Dadaist touch, a textured, liver-shaped piece of metal is laid in, and attached to the box on a piece of string is a small plastic figurine of a baby. Slightest rubbing to the corners of the box, else fine. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Cerny trojuhelnik – Podkrusnohori = The Black Triangle – The Foothills of the Ore Mountains = Le triangle noir – La region situee au pied des Montsmetalliferes. Fotografie 1990-1994

      Praha: Vesmir 1994 - OKartondecken mit ausgeschnittenem Dreieck in der Mitte, [78] unpaginierte Seite als Leporello, 23,5 x 30,5 cm, Kartondecken leicht berieben und verbogen, unscheinbare Flecken auf dem Schnitt, sonst ausgezeichneter Zustand. ISBN: 80-90113131-4-1 „This book is a photographic report in black and white on the Podkrusnohori, the western tip of the infamous Black Triangle, the foothills of the Ore Mountains. Jutting out into Poland, it is one of Europe's worst devastated territories, but it is also a region that shaped the origin and future development of the Czech state. Coal mining, the first record of which dates back to 1403, has been the region's enormous wealth as well as its curse. The industrial revolution facilitated an unprecedented upsurge of the living standards but at the cost of irreversible changes in nature. 'Man is not an omniscient master of the planet who can get away with doing whatever he likes and whatever may suit him at the moment'. That introductory quotation of Václav Havel is illustrated by Josef Koudelka's photographs of the land dominated by head frames, waste heaps, factory stacks and dried-up lakes." * Our books are stored in a warehouse, not in the shop.

VOLUME TERZO: CARTE 40 CARTE GEOGRAFICHE IN COFANETTO; INDICI TOPONOMASTICI. Lunga 120 metri, la Galleria delle Carte geografiche è la più vasta rappresentazione geografica mai realizzata, con una ricchezza di toponimi straordinaria, impreziosita da piante e prospetti di città e animata da grandiose scene di battaglia. Una decorazione straordinaria, proposta per la prima volta in tutti i suoi particolari. La decorazione delle pareti di edifici monumentali con rappresentazioni geografiche è una pratica artistica che trovò una nuova fortuna nella seconda metà del XVI secolo. La Galleria delle Carte geografiche in Vaticano, voluta da papa Gregorio XIII nel 1580, è l’esempio più esteso di questo tipo di raffigurazione pittorica. Sono infatti ben 40 le carte geografiche affrescate sulle pareti del corridoio che dai Musei Vaticani porta alla Cappella Sistina, realizzate sui disegni del coordinatore scientifico dell’impresa, Egnazio Danti, matematico e cartografo già attivo alla corte dei Medici e a Bologna. Fu invece l’umanista tedesco Luca Holstenio, cinquant’anni dopo, a curare il restauro di molti degli affreschi, forte anche dei progressi compiuti nel campo della cartografia, che in quegli anni aveva sviluppato tecniche di misurazione più accurate. Le carte, che raffigurano l’intera penisola italiana con le isole maggiori e minori, raggiungono così un livello di dettaglio spesso sorprendente, soprattutto quando ritraggono aree come lo stato pontificio, la Liguria o la Toscana, in cui Danti aveva compiuto rilievi cartografici. I dipinti si presentano all’osservatore come un lungo succedersi di mari e fiumi, valli e pianure, boschi e strade, accompagnati da targhe, piante e vedute di città racchiuse in cartigli svolazzanti ed episodi storici, mitologici o aneddotici che corredano le località principali o i mari, unendo alla ricerca di rigore scientifico il gusto per il bello e il sorprendente. Sulla volta, una serie di cinquantuno affreschi raffigura episodi miracolosi o edificanti legati alle località sottostanti, mentre un’altra serie di dipinti a monocromo riporta episodi dell’Antico Testamento. Il libro, del quale fa parte un cofanetto con le riproduzioni, su fogli sciolti, delle singole carte geografiche, documenta, analizza e commenta l’intero patrimonio artistico della Galleria. Le fotografie dell’Atlante riproducono, con attenzione ai più piccoli particolari, tutte le carte geografiche e gli affreschi del soffitto, oltre alle sculture che decorano il corridoio. I saggi del volume dei Testi, che contiene le schede che commentano le fotografie, studiano in dettaglio genesi e significati della Galleria, a partire dal saggio di Antonio Pinelli che inquadra nel contesto storico e politico l’impresa voluta da papa Gregorio XIII, oggetto anche di un anonimo poemetto coevo in latino, l’Ambulatio gregoriana, qui studiato da Rolando Ferri. La figura di Egnazio Danti e il suo lavoro nella Galleria costituiscono invece l’oggetto del saggio di Lucio Gambi, seguito dall’intervento di Marica Milanesi che affronta nello specifico le ragioni del ciclo delle carte. Il programma iconografico della volta e il suo rapporto con le carte sottostanti sono analizzati nel secondo contributo di Antonio Pinelli, mentre Paola Sereno traccia una storia della fortuna del ciclo pittorico nel corso dei secoli e Claudio Franzoni ricostruisce la storia dei restauri che l’hanno interessato.
