        The History of the Decline and Fall

      Long Beach, California:: Terry Braunstein,, 1998.. One-of-a-Kind. 5.5 x 8.25 x 1.75"; 10 pages including pastedowns. Altered book. Photomontage, mixed media, and cutouts. Hand assembled and signed by artist. Terry Braunstein: "I have been making artists books for more than twenty years, and have produced over seventy - some one-of-a-kind, others in limited edition. I began to make books because I was interested in the ways in which the viewer's response to this medium differed from that of painting and printmaking, which were my previous media to this point. I wanted to use the way that we accept knowledge as 'deep' and information 'important' from a book; the way that memory is created over pages (time) in a book; and the feelings that we bring to books from our childhood. "My bookworks began as collages in pages reminiscent of scrapbooks. Over time the collages became increasingly photographic - the images blending almost seamlessly, though surrealistically. In more recent years I have been working on 'altered books' (artists books made from previously existing books), that are more sculpture than two-dimensional. The hundreds of pages in these books have been glued together to make only two or three double-page spreads, and they may contain objects and doorways." Surreal and allusive, this altered book challenges any reader to make meaning. The tone is one constant, at least as somber as the title.

        Alphabet Book

      New York:: Evelyn Eller,, 1998.. One-of-a-Kind. 6 x 7 x 3"; 12 unnumbered pages. Double-sided accordion fold. Materials: oriental and handmade papers, book cloth, acetate, wooden sticks. Heavy paper cover pages extending as part of the accordion with interior page bound to the foredge. Paper title labels on front and back covers. Laid in wooden box with cloth sides and interior. Alphabet illustrated title on lid exterior and interior. Evelyn Eller: "I have created a series of Alphabet Books. This is one of my earliest. Working with contrasting materials interested me, so I used transparency film, Japanese Kinwashi paper, handmade heavy paper, a wooden box, and book cloth in the same structure . The use of transparent film in an accordion fold format allowed me to show the different letters of the alphabet simultaneously. I enclosed the book in its own handmade box, which echoed the materials of the book.

        The Family that Liked to Eat

      Northbay, Ontario:: Transformer Press,, 1998.. Edition of 3. 8 x 11.25" closed; 8 pages. Carousel structure. Pop ups. Constructed from Ecohemp 89 lb cover from Ecosource Paper. Painted with watercolors. Photo images and text color-copied on Tree Free Eco-21 Paper (40% hemp, 40% flax, 20% cotton). Typeset: New Century Schoolbook. Illustrated boards. Tie closures. Caroline Langill, Home/bodies: Thoughts on Disclosure in the Recent Work of Lise Melhorn-Boe (Written in 1999 for the exhibition entitled Ghost Costumes at the White Water Gallery): "With this recent body of work, using the legacies left to her by her parents, Melhorn-Boe reveals the hidden lives of parents and children. So much of what happens in a family, as it struggles to maintain some semblance of normality, is invisible to the world. Pauline Melhorn produced a number of journals which expose a life fraught with tensions about missed opportunities, at a time when the notion of the nuclear family had reached its peak."... The Family That Liked to Eat looks at the whole family and takes us back to a childhood full of middle class values. The adopted style mimics children’s literature. The pop-up format exploits infantile aesthetics in order to emphasize the irony of their ‘happy’ lives. By utilizing this form Melhorn-Boe locates us within the environment of her childhood. This canny strategy, to subvert our adult rationality through form, opens us up to the lives of this family from the point of view of the child/adult."The colour xerox on the cover of The Family That Liked to Eat shows her [Pauline Melhorn] cheerily displaying a plate of mussels. It is not hard to imagine what drove her to involve herself in this subject to this extent, since we know full well that the body is a site of struggle for power within the family, but it is difficult to determine what drove her to write about it so, especially since it is clear through other writings, that she had other desires and needs outside of this realm of food. For this writer, this is how Pauline Melhorn has maintained her secrets—although the journals are now the property of her children, she has still managed to shield herself from them, to maintain her privacy, through a very cryptic text.

        In Good Order

      Santa Barbara, California:: Pamela Zwehl-Burke,, 1998.. Edition of 8. 13.5 x 10.5"; 12 leaves. Images printed, scraped, drawn, and re-printed from a single zinc plate. Etching on front cover. In wooden box. A series of 12 etchings showing birds making, feathering, inhabiting, and then abandoning their nest. Pamela Zwehl-Burke: "I love the challenge of working one plate through a series of images — all those pages are printed from the same zinc plate, covered in hardground, drawn, etched, wiped, printed (in as many copies as will ever exist), scraped, covered, drawn, etched, wiped, printed — through the whole sequence. I was suffering at the time as my beloved daughters moved into young adulthood, and I felt that (in Buddhism clearly articulated) truth: the only constant is change. Also, the fact that the images disappear forever felt right — the beloved children are cherished, protected, encouraged, and then GONE, hopefully into a familiar cycle of bearing and nurturing and letting go. But there's a definite bleakness in the nest's uselessness, and the temperature of the world seems to drop, as loved ones scatter.

        Original wooden handmade Shaker-style box, decorated with characters from Sendak's SWINE LAKE, made for the artist's good friend and collaborator Arthur Yorinks on the occasion of his 45th birthday

      Connecticut, 1998. "First edition !!! (only 1!)". Hand-made box, illustrated in graphite and hand-colored on lid with two pigs and a wolf, inscribed around base, "Happy Birthday Arthur!!! Mazel Tov! Bravo Arthur!" with illustration of a pig wearing a crown, and inscribed on base with Frost/Sendak copyright, date, and limitation. 10-1/2 x 5-1/4 x 3-3/4 in. Fine. "First edition !!! (only 1!)". Hand-made box, illustrated in graphite and hand-colored on lid with two pigs and a wolf, inscribed around base, "Happy Birthday Arthur!!! Mazel Tov! Bravo Arthur!" with illustration of a pig wearing a crown, and inscribed on base with Frost/Sendak copyright, date, and limitation. 10-1/2 x 5-1/4 x 3-3/4 in. Shaker-style wooden box made for Sendak's friend and collaborator Arthur Yorinks for his 45th birthday, the top decorated by Sendak with pencil drawings based on characters in his forthcoming version of Jim Marshall's SWINE LAKE (Harper Collins, 1999) - the watercoloring and red lettering along the sides were done under his supervision by Lynn Caponera Frost, who has informed us: "The box was a store bought cookie box I ripped the label off and painted for Arthur. Maurice sketched out the lid in pencil and I did all the painting." The copyright inscription on the base are in Sendak's hand. The circumstance of this personalized gift between creative friends coming into commerce probably dates back seven or eight years to when Arthur Yorinks' storage facility was auctioned by a warehouse in lieu of overdue charges. Personal diaries and a few inscribed books and posters were eventually retrieved and returned to Yorinks, but this box was hitherto unknown until it surfaced in the middle of June, 2010.

        DARD HUNTER & SON

      N.P. (but Newtown, PA): Bird & Bull Press, 1998. quarter black morocco, leather spine label, Japanese cloth-covered boards, cloth-covered clamshell box with leather spine label. Bird & Bull Press. 4to. quarter black morocco, leather spine label, Japanese cloth-covered boards, cloth-covered clamshell box with leather spine label. 152, (6) pages, with 30 additional pages and 6 additional leaves of paper & printing samples, and reproductions. This fine letterpress work is an edition limited to only 225 numbered copies, of which 180 are pre-subscribed (Berger A61; Leaf Book - Chalmers 215). Henry Morris' Bird & Bull Press has now published a new Dard Hunter book, which aims to "provide a reasonable taste of the original [The Life Work], sufficient perhaps to appreciate the unstinting quality of the artistry and uncommon skill that was lavished on this work," and to provide additional material, including some on Dard Hunter II. The introduction by Mr. Morris is followed by Dard Hunter II's account of the writing of his father's biography, followed in turn by Dard Hunter III's short account of the life of Dard II, with color plates. Dard Hunter & Son documents Hunter's early Roycroft days, studies in Vienna, stained-glass windows, first paper mill in Marlborough NY, early watermarks, typefounding experiments, the move to "Mountain House," brief venture into large-scale hand papermaking, later moulds and watermarks, and his publications. Each topic is complemented by appropriate illustrations. There are three tipped-in-plates with 55 color reproductions of swatches of marbled and paste papers done by Hunter in his Vienna days, three samples (reprintings by Bird & Bull) of 2-color page or cover designs done for the Roycrofters, photos of the Marlborough Mill and a reduced-size reprint of a Dard Hunter poster drawing of the mill, original leaves from various publications, a bound-in sample of paper made by Dard Hunter and two by his son, tipped-in photos of Dard Hunter demonstrating papermaking at MIT in 1946, and a tipped-in facsimile of a page of notes made by Dard Hunter while visiting an English paper mill. The book concludes with a ten-page facsimile of the journal kept by Dard Hunter II while writing the Life Work. In all, there are about seventy individual text illustrations or facsimiles, twenty or so tipped-in plates, and sixteen printings or reprintings by the Hunters and print reproductions by Bird & Bull. This work is set in Ehrhardt type and printed on Frankfurt mould made paper at Bird & Bull. The multi-talented Dard Hunter (1883-1966), who eventually settled upon papermaking and the history of paper as his life's work, is a person of considerable interest in the recent history of the book arts. Relatively little, however, of a biographical nature has been published about him: chiefly his own autobiography of 1958, and the Life Work of Dard Hunter by his son, Dard Hunter II (1917-1989), itself an impressive work printed in Dard Hunter II's own type, and produced in a very limited edition in the early 1980s. Also includes a prospectus.

      1998. [ANGLING]. COTTON, Charles. The Compleat Angler Part II. Being Instructions How to Angle for a Trout or Grayling in a Clear Stream. With an Afterword by John McDonald. xx, 55, [5] pp. 8vo., bound in recent half morocco over paper boards. New York: Timken Editions, 1998. |~||~||~||~||~||~| Limited Edition of 101 copies. Cotton's text of 1676 has always been of more appeal to fly-fishermen than Walton's observations on angling, which derived from information culled from earlier works. Cotton was the first significant author on fly-fishing in English, and as such he represents as the true forefather of fly-fishermen. He records some sixty-five trout fly dressings as well as many observations on the requirements of fly-fishing. This edition is handsomely printed and makes delicate use of piscatorial decorative ornaments printed in green throughout. The ornaments are taken from the frontispiece of the 1653 Compleat Angler. Printed letterpress on handmade paper. Signed by McDonald and Timken.

        NASA & The Exploration of Space / With Works from the NASA Art Collection (SIGNED BY BOTH AUTHORS)

      Stewart, Tabori & Chang, New York 1998 - Number line complete 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. Signed by both authors in different weights of black felt-tip to verso of powder-blue FFE, lede author Launius signing as "Roger D.L." An additional, non-authorial gift inscription to recto of FFE is dated "October, 1998," the year if publication. The 1986 Challenger disaster merits two paragraphs, reassuring readers that "following the Challenger accident . . . NASA made extensive landing safety improvements, including upgrades of the orbiter fleet's tires, brakes, and nose-wheel steering mechanism," all bound to eliminate deadly O-ring failures during vertical takeoff, surely. Launius was NASA's chief historian (let's rank him right up there with any French historian who can dismiss the Battle of Waterloo in two paragraphs, insisting it had the benefit of bringing about "needed management reforms," though he does acknowledge that Porky the Space Bus turned out to be vastly more expensive and less "reusable" than advertised), while Ulrich was curator of the NASA Art Program (and who'da guessed, once the moon was reached in 1969 and the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, that come 1998 the taxpayers would still be funding the "NASA Art Program"?) Lots of colorful art, most technically proficient, some mawkish and hagiographic (see "Norman Rockwell.") 224 pp. including index. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Graves: Srebrenica and Vukovar.

      Scalo, New York 1998 - First edition of this moving record of the atrocites that befell the Balkans in the 1990's. Thick octavo, original illustrated boards. Signed by all three contributers. Signed by photographer Gilles Peress, Eric Stover and Justice Richard Goldstone. In fine condition. Peress described his art well when he said, "I work much more like a forensic photographer in a certain way, collecting evidence. I've started to take more still lifes, like a police photographer, collecting evidence as a witness. I've started to borrow a different strategy than that of the classic photojournalist. The work is much more factual and much less about good photography. I don't care that much anymore about "good photography." I'm gathering evidence for history, so that we remember" (U.S. News).
