        GARY SCHNEIDER: "JOHN IN SIXTEEN PARTS": LIMITED-EDITION PRINT

      New York City, NY: Gary Schneider Studios, 1996. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. New York City, NY: Gary Schneider Studios, 1996. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. Rare Gary Schneider collectible art. A pristine Limited-Edition print of one of the most iconic images from his celebrated sequence, "John In Sixteen Parts", titled, numbered, dated, and signed by Gary Schneider. There is no ISBN. The print is now rare. A brilliant production by Gary Schneider: Regular-sized print format. Measures 8 X 10 inches. In the artist's protective plastic sleeve. Eminently suitable for framing. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Gary Schneider's "John In Sixteen Parts, Part #3". The extreme close-up of the model John Erdman's right eye. From the complete sequence of images that show his various body parts (of his face), lovingly, probingly, and "scientifically" photographed by Gary Schneider (Erdman is the artist/photographer's longtime companion). Both the concept and its realization are brilliant, resulting in imagery that is strikingly original, "Conceptual" photography that is imagined rather than conceived, the work of an artist/photographer who has somehow given us a rare glimpse into the human soul, in all its beauty, pain, and "materiality", through photographs of the human body. The complete sequence was published as the eponymous Artist Book in 1997. An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item/artwork for Gary Schneider collectors. <b><i> This Limited-Edition print is one of 20 copies, indicated/numbered as such on recto, and it is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully titled, dated, and signed in pencil by the artist/photographer: "John In Sixteen Parts 1996 Part #3 4/20 Gary Schneider". This title is a great photographic print. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online, is in the artist's protective plastic sleeve, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Gary Schneider prints command thousands of dollars from his galleries, at art fairs, and at auction. His work is slowly but surely destined for canonical recognition. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed print thus. </b></i> 1 original photographic print. One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A flawless collectible print. (SEE ALSO OTHER GARY SCHNEIDER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

        THE WHITTINGTON PRESS A BIBLIOGRAPHY 1982-1993 With An Introduction By John Randle

      Risbury, Herefordshire: The Whittington Press, June, 1996. NUMBERED FIRST AND LIMITED EDITION, one of only 80 copies bound in vellum and marbled boards and one of only a small number to include an extensive set of tipped-in specimen pages. Including the normal copies, there was a printing of only 380 copies in total. Included is a printed letter/order form with notations and salutation in hand from Rosalind Randle to the original owner. Handsomely printed on Zerkall mould-made papers, illustrated with engravings printed from woodblocks and tritone plates printed by DTD, and with the set of over 40 specimen pages, mostly from the original printings, which was not included in the 244 buckram bound copies. 4to, in the original binding by the Fine Bindery of half vellum over beautifully marbled paper covered boards, the spine panel trimmed and lettered in gilt, in the original slipcase. 179, [1], specimen leaves. A pristine and perfect as mint copy of this beautifully produced book. FIRST EDITION, VERY LIMITED ISSUE AND A VERY BEAUTIFUL AND SCARCE BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THIS MODERN FINE PRESS. The Whittington Press has, since 1971, been printing books by letterpress from type ('as God intended', the Reverand Bernard Roberts once remarked), in the Gloucestershire village of Whittington. The Press was begun by John and Rosalind Randle partly as the result of an early enthusiasm for Caslon type, Albion presses and hand-made papers, and partly because of a wish to escape from London publishing jobs at the weekend. The first book of the Press, Richard Kennedy's 'A Boy at the Hogarth Press' (1972), which took a year of weekends and holidays to print in an edition of 525 copies on an 1848 Columbian hand-press, proved to be that rare event in the private press world, a best seller, and encouraged the founders to make the Press a full-time activity in 1974. From 1972 to 1991 the Press? home was at Manor Farm, Andoversford, a mile away from the presses at Whittington. Since 1972 they have printed, and nearly always published, some 250 books, including the renowned annual review for printers and bibliophiles, Matrix (?by far the finest periodical of the book arts of the twentieth century, surpassing even the seven-volume Fleuron issued in the 1920s?), which is now in its thirty-fifth year. The Press has received numerous awards for its printing and publishing, including THE AMERICAN PRINTING HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION?S AWARD for Matrix, the first time APHA?S INSTITUTIONAL AWARD has gone to a private press. The Press has a varied list, which can be best described as belles lettres, and includes books with and about wood-engravings, bibliographies of other presses, type specimens, diaries, pochoir (stencil) illustration, and much else. One common theme is illustration, nearly always printed from the original block, plate or stencil (?things, not pictures of things?, as Eric Gill once said).
