        The Great Mystery

      American Indian Mystery Press, 1997. First Edition/Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine in Fine Archival Case. Tight, bright and unmarred. Full Japanese linen cloth, black Niger goatskin label, gilt and scarlet lettering; matching tray case. 4to. np. Illus. (color plates). Numbered limited edition, this being 25 of 60. Twenty-three color printed etchings by Bogardus. Text printed by Arthur Larson, Horton Tank Graphics. Bound by Gray Parrot. "The Great Mystery is a collaboration between the artist Peter Bogardus, who made the etchings, and Russell Means, who composed a handwritten text that was been relief-printed. The initial concept for the project occurred during a visit by the artist to the Oglala Lakota Indian Reservation at Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Allowed access to tribal archives, Mr. Bogardus was able to study many original photographic references. The iconography in these ancient images of the then still free Plains peoples provided inspiration for the etchings. At the same time the reality of late 20th century reservation life served to temper any tendency to romanticize the past. Thus the etchings are a vehicle for revisiting history while the text by Russell Means connects this history to the present, the "now time". Mr. Means is an Oglala Lakota and one of the founders of the American Indian Movement; he has been instrumental in activating pride among his people and awareness of their condition among the people of the larger US society and beyond. He is renowned as an orator. His captions to the etchings are contemporary responses to the history of his peoples' contact with those who came from Europe. The extended prose is based on a traditional prayer on the horizon at dawn. The Great Mystery is one name for the Creator.

        Pomegranate. Mezzotints by Judith Rothchild

      Editions de l'eau [Reynes: Editions de l'eau. 1997]. One of 50 copies all on Hahnemuhle paper, each numbered and signed by Fainlight and Rothchild on the colophon: 14 deluxe copies with an original drawing and page of manuscript, 28 regular copies (this copy), 8 hors commerce. In addition, there were 40 additional copies of the mezzotints editioned. Page size: 15-1/2" x 10-1/2". Bound: loose in original wrappers, housed in red publisher's slipcase, paper over boards. New. With mezzotints printed by the artist, Judith Rothchild, the text was printed by Albert Woda, the publisher, who also designed the layout. This is Judith Rothchild's first livre d'artiste. Noted poet Ruth Fainlight has contributed a moving poem using the imagery of pomegranates and its association with the Greek myth of Persephone and Demeter to pose questions about the life process, aging, revisiting our youth, death and rebirth. Ms. Rothchild's pomegranates are rich and warm, almost supernaturally lit images -- always in pairs -- exposing its complicated fruit. The artist usually works in the pastel medium, using vibrant strong colors, usually still lifes, bringing life to inanimate objects with magical light. Encouraged by master engraver, Albert Woda, to work in mezzotints, Ms. Rothchild has created six haunting images to perfectly complement Ms. Fainlight's poem. See illustration.7 See an Image.

      Vincent FitzGerald & Co. New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Co.. 1997. One of 20 copies, all on Antique JB Green and Japanese Gampi paper, signed and numbered by the artist in pencil on each of the 5 etchings. The names of the subject of each portrait is etched in the plate itself. The authors are: Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, Franz Kafka and Virginia Woolf. The artist is, of course, Matisse. Each etching measures 12-1/4 inches x 17 inches, fine. The etchings were printed by Lothar Osterburg and Vincent FitzGerald. Susan Weil's aesthetic predecessors are portrayed in these blind-drawn etchings created around the same time as BLIND MAN'S BLUFF. She has captured the key element in the features of each.
