      Tokyo, Japan: Shinchosha Company Publishers, 1996 - 1st Printing. Signed. 288 pages. Published in 1996. Artist Book. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The book is now rare. A magnificent production by Tadanori Yokoo: Oversize-volume format. Red hard boards with black titles on spine, as issued. Postcards collected, photographed, and assembled by Tadanori Yokoo. Essay by Hiroshi Aramata appended at the end. Promotional blue obi-band wrapped around the book. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Tokyo, Japan to absolutely the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with colorful titles and design on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents what is unquestionably the single most glorious book on the art of the postcard and its intimate relation to photography, graphic design, and collecting. "Waterfall Rapture" utilizes the "multiplier effect" to celebrate and capture in book form the rapturous experience called collecting. Every postcard is a reproduction of a photograph (including the photograph of a painting or work of art). Each of the postcards in his massive collection was photographed by Yokoo to create his book. These photographs appear as miniature reproductions in the book, that is, as photographs of photographs of photographs of photographs, beautifully, lovingly, and obsessively assembled on every page by the graphic designer. The exhilarating result is a book that is a one-of-a-kind, which is every collector's dream object, and the postcard, photography, graphic design, and collecting finally come full circle: My addiction, my collection, my edition. Why does a human being become a collector? According to Susan Sontag (in "On Photography"), the ultimate reason is that it is the most effective way to understand oneself and somehow possess the world. According to Tadanori Yokoo, it is because: "A collection is addictive. A collection is a deviation from the system. A collection is spiritual. A collection is the unification of life and art. A collection is the soul's salvation. A collection is the pursuit of beauty. A collection is the discipline of intuition. A collection transforms quantity into quality". And ultimately because: "A collection has no purpose" (Tadanori Yokoo). Sontag and Yokoo are really saying the same thing: Collecting is about oneself, a self-portrait, not about what one is collecting. "He found space somewhere in the book for each and every single postcard. Dear reader, don't skip over a single one. Have no doubt that by participating in this memorial, you too will surely be able to find deliverance from your earthly suffering" (Hiroshi Aramata). Pure rapture, absolute bliss. An absolute "must-have" title for Tadanori Yokoo collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed (in Japanese characters) in black pen-marker by Tadanori Yokoo. This title is a great book. As far as we know, this is the only signed copy available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 13, 000 color plates. Tadanori Yokoo's "Waterfall Rapture" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". The greatest living graphic designer. A flawless collectible copy.

        Olympic Torch carried in the 1996 Olympic Torch Relay

      1996 Olympic Torch, 30? in length, 3.5 pounds. The torch features 22 aluminum "reeds," one for each Olympic Games up to 1996, and two gold plated brass rings, the upper ring displaying the inscription "Atlanta 1996" with the Atlanta Games emblem and the lower ring featuring the names of the host cities of the Olympic Games of the modern era, from 1896-1996. The torch was the tallest ever for a summer Olympic Games and the only one designed to be grasped in the middle which was made of Georgia pecan wood.The torch features a dual burner system that helped the flame resist wind and rain during relay. It was lit by pushing in and rotating the brass plate at the base to activate fuel release and then touching the top of the torch to a flame. The torch could burn for 20 minutes and was extinguished by turning off the gas.Olympian Rafer Johnson began the 1996 Torch Relay in the United States on April 27, 1996, in the Los Angeles Coliseum, the site where he ignited the last Olympic flame

        Nude Photograph of Judith Malina

      Black and white silver gelatin photograph by Weegee of Judith Malina, co-founder of the The Living Theatre, nude and backlit. Measuring 7.75" x 10". "Photo by Weegee" in an unknown hand, but probably Malina&#39;s, and Signed by Malina on the rear of the photo. Tiny bit of wear in margins, still easily fine. Accompanied by an interesting Autograph Letter Signed of provenance by Malina on stationary of The Living Theatre, as follows: "Weegee always wanted everyone to take their cloths off, men & women alike... Late one night, after the San Remo Cage closed, Weegee accompanied me home, and asked to take a nude photo. I had no inhibitions, only the demand that we not extend the nudity into sexual play - and he agreed. Weegee was very particular about the placement of the lamp. (We had floor lights in our living room because we performed there - our Theatre-in-the-room productions of Stein, Brecht, Lorca & Goodman). Weegee wanted the light to shine at just a certain angle behind me. And though I had often known him to be amorous, at this session his interest was patiently and entirely on the quality of the light & the pose - rare for a photographer known for his speed & spontaneity. Judith Malina. December 1996." An interesting sidelight on the working process and personality of an influential photographer accompanied by an arresting image. .
