        ISAAK I AVRAAM [text in Russian]

      [St. Petersburg: Izd-vo. M.K., 1994].. Narrow quarto (29 x 15.2cm). Forest-green paper over boards, printed paper label. Printed on one side only of accordion fold-out text block. Fine in board slipcase. First edition in this format, with color lithographed double-page title, and four full-page color plates, by Karasik. One of a total edition of forty-seven numbered copies, signed by the printer/illustrator, and with each of the lithographs initialed in pencil in the lower margin. An innovative presentation of Brodsky's text, conceived and executed by one of the central figures in the revival of the artist's book in post-Soviet Russia. "Mikhail Karasik’s crede [sic] is 'a book made by an artist,' he has been working on it since 1987 when he made his first lithographic book 'Christmas,' inspired by a poem by Pasternak. Karasik is the pioneer of the book made by an artist in Russia: he has published over 40 litho-books of this caliber in small editions. Moreover, he has been working hard as curator, organizer of exhibitions and festivals devoted to the book made by an artist in Russia and outside. Karasik draws upon the tradition of the Russian futurist books of the 1910- 20s, the illustrated editions by K. Malevich, M. Larionov, N. Goncharova, O. Rozanov, P. Filonov. While these futurist slipshod bulky-section-books, which were deliberately anti-aesthetic, were meant to show off, Karasik’s books, on the contrary, are exquisitely aesthetic. The artist carefully chooses all elements of decoration, he experiments with paper trying craft- and laid-paper, signs and vellum, patterns and cardboard. The elaborateness of form is of conceptual importance, for the book is a full- dress metaphor of its content" - RUSSKIALBUM.

        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 interpratation 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 MirĂ³, RenĂ© 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.

With clean, bold, and colorful imagery, this young artist subtly delivers strong, poignant messages in a refreshing and upbeat manner. His masterful use of form and color resonate with activism, allowing him to address a variety of social and political issues without any of the harsh preaching found in much of contemporary art. Britto's work embodies the expressionist color patterns of the Fauves, the multi-dimensional facets of Cubism, and the reference to mass culture in Pop Art. This is the first book on Britto and it includes 90 large color reproductions of his paintings and graphics, as well as a profile of his life and career." The Brazilian artist is also known for his sculptures and his 'neo-pop' wall decorations. Foreword by Nan Miller and Aaron Young. Photographs of paintings by Ira Victor and Michael Hager, other photographs by Andrew Melick. Includes listings of exhibitions. Some scuffing and minor staining on slipcase. Tissue guard creased. Very slight offsetting on page 94. With business card of Stephen M. Gamson, Sales Director of Britto Central, laid-in.
