        Tintypes

      - BIDAUT, JAYNE HINDS. Tintypes, No. 45 of an edition of 100, quarto, Graphis, 1999, pp. 224, red cloth boards in a black cloth-covered wooden clamshell box, essay by Eugenia Parry, with a dedication by the artist and an original tintype of a butterfly (2.5x3.5 inches) signed by the artist. Fine in scuffed clamshell. A mostly forgotten phenomenon, the tintype is a thin piece of sheet iron enameled black or brown-black with a collodion coating to hold an image. It was the first photographic process that was widely available to anybody, with itinerant practitioners of the art selling their work for little money. The tintype brought the first instances of people mugging and generally making fools of themselves in front of a camera, so it is interesting to come upon a serious artist working in this medium In her explanatory essay, Parry takes us through the thinking that brought Bidaut to the tintype as her means of expression. “Modern chemistries wouldn’t do. . She chose ferrotype (also called tintype) in which ‘The Dark - felt beautiful-,’ for the dusky shadings of the process impart to everything captured the aura of perpetual twilight. . Returning to ferrotype, photographically retrograde, was also an act of deliberate preservation ‘against the strange disease of modern life.’ ” The book is largely made up of toned and color plates reproducing Bidaut’s work: academy figures, insects and stereo nudes. Bidaut’s hand-written inscription on the last page says: Dec. 23, 1999 This book is dedicated to my parents - without whom none of this would have been possible and in celebration of their fiftieth wedding anniversary.

        How Many Strads? Our Heritage from the Master; a Tribute to the Memory of a Great Genius

      Chicago: Bein & Fushi, 1999. Thick Quarto. Enlarged and Expanded Edition. 464 pages. While the 1945 edition was a great contribution, this new expanded edition is the definitive reference for those at the highest level of understanding Strads for whom expertise is essential. Not only is it issued in a far superior binding and high quality paper but with the research of Charles Beare and Peter Biddulph along with Harry Benson there is an improved text. Of course, it is the four additional chapters containing histories and photographs of violins not previously illustrated in any of the violin literature as well as exploring the cellos from Stradivari's last years that are part of its major contribution as well as containing several newly illustrated instruments.These new photographs are mostly from the archives of Bein & Fushi. Finally, the bibliography lists all the major contributions since the original 1945 edition as well as the location and seventy-five items not found in Herbert Goodkind's "Violin Iconography of Antonio Strativari". The index and extensive updated bibliography complete what is a major contribution to violin literature. A fine bright copy bound in red cloth lettered and decorated in black and gilt, spine black and gilt, decorative endpapers. An exceptionally nice copy.

        Mummy Mummies

      Didier Mutel, [Rome] 1999 - 48 pp. 25cm x 32cm. Printed by Didier Mutel on the press of the Villa Médicis in Rome on Velin d&#146;Arches, 160 grams, in a limited edition of 44 copies, 20 of which are numbered 1-20 for Alain Fleischer, 20 copies numbered 21-40 for Didier Mutel, and 4 copies numbered 41-44 reserved for friends of the collaborators, all copies signed by Fleischer and Mutel. Text and original photographs by Alain Fleischer published at the l&#146;Académie de France, Villa Médicis in Rome. The text was photoengraved and etched with acid on copper plates. Six original chemically unfixed silver gelatin photographs, protected by red safelight polyester barrier sheets, and housed in a lead slipcase. Mummy, Mummies is the second work of Didier Mutel published in Rome, in collaboration with Alain Fleischer, an artist and director of the Le Fresnoy - Studio National des Arts Contemporains. Fleischer provided Mutel with a set of six original photographs of mummies from the Crypt of Ferentillo in the Umbria region of Italy, and an essay accompanying the images. The essay addresses the ironic tension Fleischer sees between the preservation of human remains in mummified form and preservation by photographic means, evaluating the imprint ("empreinte") that each leaves to posterity. Mounted in blind impressions facing the text, the photographs were prepared unfixed, but protected from light damage by red safelight barrier sheets which conserve the images just as the mummies of Ferentillo are conserved in their crypt&#151;each exposition of the images to the bare light of day will, over time, bring out in each of them the dark into which they will disappear.
