        House on Fire

      Fiddletown, California:: Katherine Venturelli,, 1996.. Edition of 5 variants. 10.5 x 8" closed; extends to 48". Intaglio images on Rives BFK. House-shaped pages. Embossing. Graphite. Bound in red cloth over boards with embossed flame images. Housed in wood house-shaped box 12 x 10.75 x 2.5". Herb Boxhorn assisted on the box. Signed and numbered by the artist. Victoria Dalkey, "Turning the pages of life," The Sacramento Bee, 1999: "Venturelli makes most of her elegant, sumptuous books in the form of rudimentary, streamlined houses. Take off the roof of one and you find inside an accordion-folded book that opens to reveal etchings. … "Several images occur on the pages of her books - boats and ladders, cups and chalices, circles and triangles. 'They are archetypal symbols of change and transformation,' Venturelli said. "'The house is a sacred place,' she said. … 'It is a womb, a place to rejuvenate. Just as we are always working on our houses, we are changing ourselves.' "In addition to serving as a three-dimensional casing for Venturelli's books, houses also appear as images in many of her works. Often they are engulfed in flames. "'Fire, again, is a symbol of transformation,' she said. 'Fire purifies and renews life. It has power and energy, yet it destroys. Sometimes we have to destroy in order to transcend a situation. Death is a form of transformation.'

        Evidence 1944 - 1994 Gebundene Ausgabe von Mary Shanahan (Herausgeber), Richard Avedon (Autor), Jane Livingston (Mitarbeiter), Adam Gopnik (Mitarbeiter)

      Schirmer /Mosel Verlag Gm, 1996. Autorisierte deutschsprachige Ausgabe. Hardcover. 36,2 x 28,6 x 3 cm. Richard Avedon wurde am 15. Mai 1923 in New York City geboren. Sein Vater war als jüdisch-russischer Einwanderer in die USA gekommen und in einem New Yorker Waisenhaus aufgewachsen. Zu Avedons Markenzeichen gehört der weiße, leere Hintergrund, auf dem nichts vom Motiv ablenkt. Neben den Schönen und Prominenten der Welt lichtete der Künstler das Leben von Arbeitern, Demonstrationen gegen den Vietnamkrieg, Kriegsopfer und Landstreicher ab. Zum Jahreswechsel 1989/90 fotografierte er eine Reportageserie über Berliner nach dem Mauerfall. Seine Bilder gelten als schonungslos und detailgenau. 2004 starb Richard Avedon, der einer der berühmtesten Mode- und Porträtfotografen der Welt war. Richard Avedon wurde am 15.

Au verso indication du film employe, du sujet et parfois des parametres d'exposition. Les compositions sont signees 'R.'.. Magnifique collection de plus de 1'000 photographies d'un artiste espagnol. Les planches representent, par l'exposition efficace et reussie d'ensembles de 6-12 photographies, une grande variete de sujets, captures par le photographe en Catalogne entre 1996 et 2003 (Province de Barcelone (Viladecavalls, Rellinars), province de Lerida, province e Gerone (Girona, port de l'Escala), iles Canaries). Les vues privilegiees par l'artiste dans cette collection sont les sujets maritimes, les graffitis (28 planches) et la nature. Sont remarquables par leur originalite les planches qui se concentrent sur les details, releves par l'habilete du photographe, capable de jouer avec les formes, les couleurs et leurs contrastes. L'oeil de l'artiste decouvre souvent des sujets insolites, comme des poulies, des briques, une place de jeux, des dechets abandonnes. L'effet donne par ces planches est celui d'une harmonie parfaite entre les differentes photographies selectionnees.Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl.

        Historia heráldica y origen de la nobleza de los Austrias .

      1996. Ediciones Grial-Patrimonio Nacional. 1996 - . . . 2 Vol. . Vol.I: 386 pp. (facsímil) Vol.II: 147 pp. (comentarios). Folio Imperial. Plena Piel. Bibliografía / Bibliofilia (Facsímil), Historia de España (Austrias) . Magnífica edición facsímil de esta obra dedicada en 1549 por Otto Truchses, Cardenal de Augsburgo, a Felipe II, quien estimó con especial predilección este manuscrito. Se encuentra especialmente considerado en la Biblioteca del Real Monasterio de San Lorenzo de El Escorial como obra de lujo. Contiene una descripción del Mundo desde sus comienzos bíblicos hasta mediados del siglo XVI desde el punto de vista cronológico e histórico. La raza humana comienza con Noé y sus hijos, que pueblan las partes de Africa, Asia y Europa. Este orden cronológico es introducido cada vez por un "prefatio heraldi" en el que se encuentran elaborados los enfoques sobre política específicos del capítulo en cuestión. La exposición de cada territorio tiene lugar según principios geográficos, de conocimiento del país e históricos, aunque siempre resaltando la relación con la casa de Augsburgo. Queda constancia de la entrega de los códices gracias a una nota manuscrita de la Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek (Biblioteca Estatal de Baviera): "Anno 1549 El Obispo de Augsburg homenajeó al Príncipe de Austria con preciosos libros, que encargó a Tyrols, habitante de Augsburgo, con grandes costos y con exquisitos dibujos y textos" Contiene 227 miniaturas, obra de Jorge Breu "El Joven", pintor también natural de Augsburgo, que realizó un magnífico trabajo de iluminación del manuscrito. Impreso sobre pergamino y papel, la calidad de la reproducción es enorme ya que el facsímil reproduce incluso la forma del corte de cada hoja con respecto al original conservado en la Biblioteca de El Escorial. Presenta una encuadernación editorial inspirada en la del original en piel sobre tabla de madera con gofrados en ambos planos y lomera. El facsímil viene acompañado por un volumen de comentarios a cargio de Elisabeth Scheciher, con reproducciones de las miniaturas y comentarios sobre las mismas.

        The Green Mile.

      Penguin, London 1996 - First edition of each of the six paperbacks published in self-contained monthly installments in 1996. Small octavo, 6 volumes. Each copy is signed by Stephen King on the title page. A very sharp set, showing only light shelfwear. This novel taps into what Stephen King does best: character-driven storytelling. The setting is the small "death house" of a Southern prison in 1932. The charming narrator is an old man looking back on the events, decades later. Maybe it's a little too cute, maybe the pathos is laid on a little thick, but it's hard to resist the colorful personalities and simple wonders of this supernatural tale. As Time magazine put it, "Like the best popular art, The Green Mile has the courage of its cornier convictions . the palpable sense of King's sheer, unwavering belief in his tale is what makes the novel work as well as it finally does." And it's not a bad choice for giving to someone who doesn't understand the appeal of Stephen King, because the one scene that is out-and-out gruesome can be easily skipped by the squeamish. The Green Mile was nominated for a 1997 Bram Stoker Award and was made into the well-received motion picture directed by Frank Darabont and starring Tom Hanks and Michael Clarke Duncan.
