        Les Prélivres

      Montolivet: Éditions de la Fontaine-aux-Loups, 2000. Small folio case containing twelve 12mo. books. One of 555 copies. A special twentieth-anniversary edition of the clever “pre-books” that Munari designed for children before they learn to read. The publishers explain that “In 20 years, the materials and techniques have obviously developed and changed. We have decided, therefore, for this new edition to favour the spirit of the artist rather than make slavish copies.” A pocket inside the front flap of the folio contains “Book 0,” with directions for use in English and French, and Munari’s explanation of his concept. The twelve “prélivres” are housed in individual wooden compartments. The folio is made of stiff corrugated blue paper, embossed on the front with the title and publication information. An elastic cord holds the folio closed. A fine, beautifully-designed new edition of this innovative set.

Format in-4°( 27 x 22,7 cm )( 1080 gr ) ------ 208 pages . ********** "" Qui se souvient de l'interdiction faite aux femmes pendant un demi-siècle de porter des cotonnades imprimées ? Se rappelle-t-on l'engouement passionnel déclenché dans toute la société par les " indiennes ", ces toiles de coton à décor peint, teint ou imprimé ? Cet ouvrage original retrace l'histoire du coton, du Moyen Âge à la fin du XVIIIe siècle, et raconte comment cette nouvelle matière est peu à peu devenue à la mode, tant dans l'habillement que dans l'ameublement. Il analyse le formidable succès de tous les types de cotonnades, des futaines, mélangées de lin et coton, aux indiennes, en passant par les perses et mousselines. Réalisé sous la direction de Pascale Gorguet Ballesteros, conservateur du Patrimoine, ce livre réunit un nombre exceptionnel de contributions d'historiens français et étrangers. L'iconographie abondante et souvent inédite éclaire ce récit de l'aventure du coton qui a tant révolutionné la consommation textile européenne. En fin de parcours, une ouverture sur l'actualité du coton nous laisse entrevoir que son histoire n'est pas finie. '' ************ [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 144 pages. Retrospective collection of color photographs. One of the greatest photography books of our time. The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Esko Mannikko and Petri Kuokka: Oversize-volume format in oblong shape. Maroon leatherette pictorial hard boards with photographic reproduction pasted on the cover and pale gray titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and text by Esko Mannikko. Printed on thick uncoated stock paper in Finland to the very highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Esko Mannikko&#39;s austerely yet breathtakingly beautiful photographs of his native Finland, a dying rural Finland kept defiantly alive by Esko Mannikko&#39;s artistry. Mannikko&#39;s lifelong subject, the decline of rural Finland, that is to say, the decline of agrarian life, is off-putting, even depressing, something people say they do not want in their lives, as if it were ugly or toxic (an accusation that the American writer Annie Proulx had to endure as well). This is ironic because Mannikko&#39;s work breathes whereas most contemporary art and photography are lifeless exercises in Mannerist cleverness. Mannikko is a Classicist, a rarity in our shallow "post-modern" art world. It is important to be reminded that in a world saturated and choking with derivative images from glossy magazines, he is the real thing: A great artist. His impeccable compositional sense and formalist use of color as well as his aesthetic rigor and faultless eye are not just "world-class"; they set Mannikko apart from other living photographers, and make him an artist in a class of his own. An absolute "must-have" title for Esko Mannikko collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Esko Mannikko. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Copies of the true first (and even subsequent editions) available online command up to $800. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 108 color plates. Esko Mannikko&#39;s "Naarashauki: The Female Pike" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest living photographers. A flawless collectible copy.

      2000. [KAKEMONO - HANGING SCROLL] Sugiura HISUI, artist. PAINTING AND POEM - Red Fuji. Hanging scroll, image size 52 1/4" X 26 1/2". Beautifully mounted on brocade. The painting is signed and sealed by Sugiura Hisui (1876-1965), responsible between the wars and after for Mitsukoshi department stores&#39; trendsetting design and publicity. He has been rediscovered within the last decade. Among a number of other shows illustrating his role in creating "Taisho chic", there was a wonderful retrospective on his lifetime of work hung at the Tokyo Museum of Modern Art in 2000. This large and lovely work reveals his debt to tradition. With a presentation letter from him to a professor acquaintance, Hiruma Masamichi, dated New Year&#39;s day, Sho^wa 40 (1965), the year Hisui died. A note on the box indicates this scroll was hung at the influential Issuikai annual exhibit. Impeccable condition in a scroll box and outer slipcase.

Ms. Moore explains that working with a key concept from each poem, she invented letter-based designs that extend the feeling and content of each poem to where the line between visual and verbal begins to blur. Her work melds, weaves, and plays with visual and verbal messages in her lettering and painting. It is printed, engraved, and for these copies, hand colored in vivid tones with silver and gold gilt. The text was set in Monotype Fairbank Italic at the foundry of Michael and Winifred Bixler and printed letterpress by Terry Chouinard, who designed this beautiful book with Suzanne Moore. A wonderful assemblage - showing the artist working through a project. <br>See an <A HREF= >Image.</A><br>
