        Gamma Cruxis

      Colfax, WA: Timothy C. Ely, 1999-2015. Unique. Hardcover. New. Timothy C. Ely. Planetary Collage Standard binding, leather spine, Sitka spruce wood boards salvaged from a guitar top. Boards treated with a variety of materials and methods including tooling, engraving, dyeing, and sanding. Brown handmade endpapers. 9 full spreads, 2 single leaves. Book: 25cm x 17cm Deep drop back box includes a fixed cylindrical map suspended over a black rocky terrain visible through a rectangular port hole. The surround of the port hole is worked in heavy impasto of pulverized marble; the inside lid of the box is adorned with a watercolor.The sides of the box, inside and out, are fully illustrated in Ely?s inimitable style.The outer case is a muted red-orange book cloth. Box: 28.5cm x 19cm x 8.25cm Gamma Cruxis could be considered an edition of sorts, although its past, present, and future are not at all straightforward. In the 1990s, Ely made a group of stencils through which he air-brushed color, creating the first layer of what could become up to seven potential books called Gamma Cruxis. The idea behind Gamma Cruxis is that by sharing the same base layer, the vastly different completed books intersect to expand on the meaning of a single book. In 1997, Ely completed a copy of Gamma Cruxis, now at Columbia University. That copy is accompanied by a prospectus indicating that it is ?one of a variable set of seven copies.? It is and it isn?t. Ely says,?I try to stretch the existing definitions of unique and multiple.? He retains the four remaining sets of the base layer of Gamma Cruxis. He has no plans to make those into books. As Ely said recently, ?There are other books to happen.? Ely began this copy of Gamma Cruxis in 1999, and worked on it sporadically. In 2015, inspired, Ely completed this book in a far more elaborate manner than the previous two copies (one is in a private collection). The architecture and elaborate decoration of the box are a hint, a preview of the book. The black, rocky terrain glimpsed through the port hole is just out of reach. Ely explores that dark, rugged, asteroid-like topography, accompanied by faint cribriform markings throughout Gamma Cruxis, and refines it. Geometric, astronomical, and mathematical images and ?text? riff on the asteroid idea. Several geometric shapes appear but eventually Ely?s more usual circular planetlike images give over to the hexagon. An entire page of fuzzy grey hexagons morphs into a cluster of small, colorful, very precisely drawn versions of the same shape. Turn the page and we see the hexagon deconstructed and, eventually, returned to outer space.

        Mirrors

      The American University in Cairo Press, Cairo, Egypt 1999 - This copy of "Mirrors" has been SIGNED by Naguib Mahfouz on the half-title page! "Mirrors" is one of Nobel Laureate Naguib Mahfouz's more unusual works. First published in a serialized form in the Egyptian television magazine, it consists of a series of vignettes of characters from a writer's life - a writer very like Mahfouz himself. And accompanying each vignette is a portrait of the character by a friend of the author, the renowned Alexandrian artist Seif Wanli. The apparently simple but penetrating portraits by Seif Wanli add an extra, distinctive dimension to this already intriguing book. They originally appeared with the serialized texts in the television magazine, but were omitted when the book was first published in 1972 and again when the English translation first appeared in 1977. Now, in this special edition, the pictures and the complete text appear together for the first time. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        THE BAD BEGINNING and THE REPTILE ROOM plus 'Magnets for Misfortune.'

      New York: HarperCollins, (1999.) : , 1999. SIGNED first edition - An extremely uncommon ARC of the first two titles in the "Series of Unfortunate Events" by Lemony Snicket - THE BAD BEGINNING and THE REPTILE ROOM, bound dos-a-dos, (back to back) in glossy illustrated wrappers. SIGNED (sort of) by the author, with an embossed seal and the trademark handwritten comment 'with all due respect' surrounding the seal, and the date '3.X.2004. written inside the seal. First issue, with the misspelling of 'unfortuante' on the covers. Now that this was the basis of a movie starring Jim Carey, Meryl Streep and Jude Law, even those of you who don't have children in your lives are probably familiar with these books, but for those who might still be languishing uninformed, here is a bit of information: The Lemony Snicket books are possibly even more popular than the Potter books - and for good reason! The resemblance to Edward Gorey's works is not accidental - How could anyone not love a book which contains this 'letter to the reader' at the beginning: 'I am sorry to say that the book which you are holding in your hands is extremely unpleasant. It tells the unhappy tale of three very unlucky children. Even though they are charming and clever, the Baudelaire siblings lead lives filled with misery and woe. From the very first page of this book, when the children are at the beach and receive terrible news, continuing on through the entire story, disaster lurks at their heels. One might say they are magnets for misfortune./ In this short book alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune and cold porridge for breakfast. / It is my sad duty to write down these unpleasant tales, but there is nothing stopping you from putting this book down at once and reading something happy, if you prefer that sort of thing.' What adult would not enjoy the in-jokes of names like Sunny and Klaus (as in von Bulow) - or the fact that these books actually encourage children to learn from reading, as in this excerpt: 'But although Klaus had read books on outer-space exploration, ice-skating tricks, and good marriage methods, and not yet found much use for this information, he had learned a great deal of information that was about to become very useful indeed.' Or a beginning paragraph that includes a word like 'rife'? The vocabulary is wonderful in these books. As a well-publicized debut, this advance reading copy was presumably printed in relatively generous numbers - but very few are currently being offered for sale! Either all the booksellers who got copies of this are hoarding this treasure themselves or, horrors, actually GAVE them to children! However, not only are we willing to sell this ARC, we will even include the much more elusive ' Magnets for Misfortune' which was produced as part of this original publicity campaign (I have never seen any of these offered for sale). This is the first of the promotional magnet sets done by the publisher: it consists of a small sheet of words (5 3/4 by 4 inches, designed to be cut apart and use to create 'refrigerator poetry'' Still in the original sealed plastic bag with a slip announcing a poetry contest for children. Very near fine - a new and unread book, tight binding, no creases, but a little nick at the top of the spine and another at the upper corner (probably done in the publishing process, since these tiny nicks seem to be endemic to most otherwise fine copies). .

        El arte y sus lugares

      Siruela 1999 - La obra reúne los últimos textos de Tàpies sobre arte y ofrece un apasionante recorrido visual a lo largo de más de 300 reproducciones de obras escogidas por el pintor. Estas obras, surgidas en distintas civilizaciones y en diferentes momentos históricos, guardan entre sí un íntimo nexo de unión y sugieren una visión de totalidad estética donde los significados históricos parecen disolverse en un sistema de correspondencias simbólicas o visuales. El artista hace un inteligente acercamiento al patrimonio cultural de las tradiciones y manifestaciones artísticas de los países no europeos, que reflejan las coincidencias entre las antiguas tradiciones y las propuestas del arte moderno, y refleja, así mismo, una determinada manera de entender el arte por parte del autor. Texto secundado por las ilustraciones, especie de fantástico museo visual que muestra como las sucesivas generaciones de artistas se han inspirado en obras concretas de África, la India, China, Oceanía o las cultura precolombinas.

        The Children's Crusade. De Luxe edition with original signed etching 46/75

      Grey cloth binding in grey cloth slip case. 45.5cm x 31.5cm. Colour illustrations throughout. The text has been hand-set in Monotype Caslon, printed on Arches vélin at The Stonehouse Press, and bound at The Fine Bindery, who have also made the slipcases for the de luxe edition. There are some light foxing spots to the slipcase. The de luxe edition of 75 copies, signed by Paula Rego and Blake Morrison, contains Rego's signed original etching Bait, which is laid loose into a wallet in the slipcase; the etching has been printed on 300 gsm Somerset Velvet at the Culford Press, London. The regular edition of 100 copies is also signed by Rego and Morrison. Following her much admired collaboration with the poet Blake Morrison, Pendle Witches (Enitharmon, 1996), Rego turned more specifically to the tradition of the illustrated book as a way of constructing her own narrative in purely visual terms. She produced twelve hand-coloured etchings for Marlborough Graphics through which she tells the tale synthesise figure studies from life with startling transformations of traditional religious imagery and purely invented situations. In his introduction, Blake Morrison brilliantly illuminates the pictures and their relation to the crusade, and the scene is set by two passages from medieval chronicles. The book concludes with an extensive and revealing interview with Paula Rego, in which she explains her fascination with the subject and its relationship to her work as a whole. This is the numbered De Luxe edition with the etching Bait.. As New.
