        Tango de la CicatrizEpigrama de Fin de SigloPoema de Juvenal AcostaMonoimpresiones de Gustavo Ramos RiveraIntroducción de Alberto Blanco

      San Francisco, California:: Ediciones Tarumba,, 1996.. Edition of 22. 18 x 23 x 1.5"; 9 leaves. Five monoprints: collaged and handworked by the artist; printed with colored etching inks on plexiglass then pressed with a dry point plate of aluminum. Images printed on white Twin Rocker feather deckle heavyweight handmade printing paper, made by Twin Rocker Mill (Brookston, Indiana). Text letterpress printed on Rives BFK paper in Monotype Poliphilus and Blado by Peter Rutledge Koch, assisted by Richard Seibert. Laid in a lined portfolio box, hand painted by the artist. Paper size is 16 x 21". All plates have been effaced and cancellation proofs have been pulled. Edition of 22: 11 in English; 11 in Spanish (plus one publisher's proof, one printer's proof, one poet's proof, and one artist's proof). This is a copy in Spanish. Alberto Blanco, introduction: "... in this portfolio, poetry and painting come together, like sea and sand, and the result is neither the one nor the other, but the mystery that begins there, where opposite poles touch; there, where the borders of the scar meet and kiss; ... " ... if it weren't so evident that the poem by Juvenal Acosta and the monoprints by Ramos Rivera are an end-of-the-century cry - a renewed howl from the millennium's end - we would think that this was only an innocent work of art."But, is there such a thing as an innocent work of art? No, because a work of art is a wicked proposal that is at once both an arrival and a departure, and Tango of the Scar is no exception: it is indeed a poem that moves in different directions. It is a poem for the end of the century, for the end of the millennium; but also a poem for the beginning of the millennium, the beginning of the century.""In this portfolio where the poems came first and the images, the monoprints of Gustavo Ramos Rivera are that and more. These monoprints are a palimpsest of apparitions on handmade paper: a line traced with pencil, quilled pen, or with the stroll of a paintbrush; the collage follows with its textures as pieces of paper are attached, including, of course, the printed original poem; then the watercolors and etching inks on plates of plexiglass; and finally the pressing of the paper against a dry point plate of aluminum that transforms the monoprint into a coherent entity larger than the sum of its parts.

        Titok

      New York :: Dobbin Mill / Artist Press,, 1996-98.. Edition of 5. 12 x 12 x 12" closed. Consists of 27 4" blocks. Housed in a lidded collapsible box. Twenty artists and writers plus one musician were asked via letter to send, inform, or instruct Silverberg about a secret. As the secretist, she used their responses to create titok—twenty-seven four-inch blocks that form a twelve-inch cube of three layers (nine cubes per layer). Some boxes are fully closed, some have peepholes, and some are open with boxes within. The exterior and interior faces are covered with over 200 images and texts produced by photography, photocopy, photo transfer and drawing. The imaging on the blocks functions like a maze through which the viewer proceeds, exploring the ideas and feelings suggested about secrets. Each block has a hidden material within that makes noise when rattled. Also included is a CD with a 27-part violin piece composed specifically for the viewing of titok. Silverberg: ?"There is neither table of contents nor smoking gun to trace the sources of the elements which make up this artist book. Authorship is treated as privileged information in order to focus the readers' attention on the initial outsider relationship of beholder to content.. My role in creating this object is that of a secretist, a dealer in secrets.?"

Left interior of box shadow box (votive) constructed of found materials (dried beans and corn etc). Book: 7 x 5.25"; 16 pages. Printed on Renaissance Duo archival paper with archival inks on Epson Stylus 2000P. Bound in leather, hand stitched, pamphlet style. Set in Trixie with embellishments in Cezanne. Oration pasted to right interior lid printed in English and Spanish. Bessie Smith Moulton: "While traveling in Guatemala I was introduced to the worship of a local saint who is said to be a blend of ancient Mayan gods, a fierce conquistador of Guatemala and the biblical Judas. A custom-made wooden box on one side houses a black, leather-bound book with a red foil, die-stamped title. The book contains iconographic representations of the dark saint of Guatemala, including photographs of his place of worship and translations of Spanish orations. The images and text illustrate the power of 'St. Simon' and the reverence of his devotees. "On the facing side of the box is a copy of an authentic votive, generally made by a curandero (medicine man) from talismanic materials readily available to the local worshipers. The votive is covered with a piece of hand-blown glass framed in lead. When the book is removed, it reveals an oration, which guides one through the use of the box as an altar.

        Bibelots

      Falmouth, Maine:: Bessie Smith Moulton,, 1996.. Edition of 13. 4.75 x 4.75 x 1.75" clamshell box housing three 4 x 4" books. 23 Sins: 52 pages bound in black linen with a red foil stamped title; hand stitched pamphlet style. Sui Spiritus: 20 pages bound in black linen with a silver foil stamped title; black and white images; letterpress printed on Mohawk Superfine paper; hand stitched pamphlet style. 13 Superstitions: 13 pages, bound in black linen with a mat-black foil stamped title, hand stitched pamphlet style. Combination of handset type, polymer plates and blind embossing. 23 Sins: Bessie Smith Moulton: "23 Sins was created in 2002 for a book competition in Lithuania. I chose to illustrate the given theme using the simplest graphic symbols which encourage the viewer to participate by deciphering the pictograms. The leading character on most pages is a red or black dot. Although the treatment is simple it delivers a deeper message. "Arshile Gorky wrote, 'Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot see physically with his eyes ... to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind ... an exploration into unknown areas." "3 Sins" is an edition of 23 but 13 have been set aside for this edition of Bibelots. 13 Superstitions: Bessie Smith Moulton: "It has been said that to practice magic is an attempt to control the supernatural world. Although, I was raised in a strict Baptist tradition my paternal grandmother's Scottish/Celtic beliefs infiltrated our lives through my Father's superstitions. Each day was laced with sayings, talismans (from rabbit's feet and horseshoes to four leaf clovers) and rituals which straddled both worlds. There were times we were unable to reach our destination because a black cat crossed our path. This book illustrates 13 of those frequently heard superstitions." Sui Spiritus: Bessie Smith Moulton: "Sui Spiritus is a letterpress book of images and poems that could be considered incantations and talismans, from the Arabic word Tilsamen, meaning to make marks like a magician. "Author/artist Georgiana Peacher says, "This book is like a prayer book for a religion of her own making; experience distilled into a symbol, a poem. As a totem maker, Bessie imbues each image with power." Much is hidden in the symbols. For instance a simple ink painting of an ant surrounded by dots and dashed spells out a message in Morse code (suggestive of the obscure language of ants) saying, "Our wisdom will not be lost." A symbol representing the phases of the moon waxes or wanes throughout the pages, like a flip book, further connecting it with the lunar mysteries.
