Kurt Schwitters was one of the most influential, groundbreaking, and forward-looking artists of international Modernism-yet only certain areas of his immensely diverse oeuvre have been thoroughly investigated and catalogued. His has now been properly and fully documented for the first time, in a landmark three-volume catalogue raisonn, which is particularly notable for bringing to light many of Schwitters' previously unpublished pictorial work, including collages, drawings, and paintings. This first volume covers the artist's early years, with little-known works form the period prior to World War I, as well as the earliest MERZ pieces he created between 1918 and 1922. Schwitters' works are here organized chronologically and, within years, according to genre, and the book also features a detailed illustrated biography of the artist 997 Abb., 104 farb.

Printed on hand-made and mould-made papers. includes tip-ins, affixations, embossments. Bound in ten gatherings and hand-sewn. Fitted with a folded wrapper printed with an enlarged postal cancellation mark. Signed and numbered. Hamady (7/6/1917): "These books ae pristine, as issued by the printer/publisher. Unlike the secondary market they are somehow of a better upbringing. Colophon: "Writing letters is passé in our modern world of e-mail and seems to raise the same eyebrow as mention of NOT having a television set! It is still an elegant way to communicate without intrusion or urgency, directly and quietly into the intended consciousness at a pace neither slow nor fast. "Some explanation of this text is contained in the prefatory and suffixial notes. We are hopeful that these excerpts and truncations will tease the reader's imagination to wonder what the whole of each might contain. Perhaps questions will arise out of this reporting and enumberation of commonplace events in two lives." Suffixial aegistical notes: "As stated earlier in the 'expurgated prefatory aegistical notes' this book is a listing or enumeration of letters (and a few postcards) exchanged between Hamady and Wilde through the years 1971 - 2000. Though not 'independently verified' there appears to be 1159 extant and in hand. "Eight (previous) collaborations are chronicled here in the ninth though at times tergiversational and snippetted. You, the reader, must understand at this outset that the work here under private scrutiny is a bibliographic document itemizing a correspondence begun in 1971 and is the concordance of that intercourse. "Also it must be understood that for each entry there is beneath a berg for the tip. As a segmented evolution, with no determined destination other than the voyage itself, this text and what it represents, could, conceivably, cause a certain difficult affliction to those who preacertain a preference for plot or conclusion. "The text was prepared directly from holographic letters and envelopes sent over from Porter Township. Schreibmachined carbons without envelopes or signature were generated her in Perry. Of course documentation is lopsidedly incomplete without studying the originals in equiponderation. "Our perceptive reader will note other anomalies e.g. some letters have identical dates or dates too close to make reciprocity through the post office. Which means the letters are crossing which may further imply that one writer doesn't give a hoot what the other has to say - though exchanged ideas to transpire eventually in a delayed syncopation. Also the many aliases usually forged from specificities in the lacunae of text will obfusk the identify of who wrote what. Since these writers seem not to care why should anyone else?

         Cube

      - offset lithograph, 2001, signed and numbered from the edition of 300, Publisher Kaikai Kiki Ltd., Tokyo. Takashi Murakami is a Japanese artist combining the fine and the commercial art worlds. Often categorized alongside artists working within the tradition of Pop Art, such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, and Jeff Koons, Murakami's work has achieved a widespread level of fame beyond the art world. His innovative "Superflat" aesthetic—combining classical Japanese art with contemporary Japanese pop culture—has made him one of the most innovative artists working today. He continues to explore the links between traditional printmaking and Japanese styles of comics in post-war society in his highly graphic, vibrantly colored works. Despite its outward playfulness, Murakami's art acts as a cultural critique with subversive undertones hidden in its imagery. Born on February 1, 1962 in Tokyo, Japan, where he currently lives and works, Murakami has embraced commerce through the founding Kaikai Kiki Co., Ltd., an artist management agency and studio. With his popular collaboration with the fashion label Louis Vuitton, Murakami has established himself as a pioneer of promoting art as a brand. His work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions around the world, include those held at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Gagosian Gallery in London, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, and the Versailles Palace.

         An Open Heart: Practicing Compassion in Everyday Life.

      Boston: Little Brown and Company, 2001. First edition. Octavo, original boards. Signed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Edited by Nicholas Vreeland. Afterword by Khyongla Rato and Richard Gere. Dalai Lama progresses beyond his bestsellers The Art of Happiness and Ethics for the New Millennium by introducing specific practices that can engender happiness. Spiritual practice, according to the Dalai Lama, is a matter of taming unwanted emotions, which means becoming aware of how the mind works. Through the methods of analytical and settled meditation, the Dalai Lama shows how we can cultivate helpful states of mind and eliminate harmful states, leading us to develop compassion for others and happiness for ourselves. But there is no preaching of a single, right method. This revered but humble monk merely invites the reader to understand the causes of one's suffering and consider how best to alleviate it.

No. VII of forty of the deluxe version, out of a total edition of 350, bound in full Oasis leather with endpapers marbled by Christopher Rowlatt, with a separate portfolio of original prospectuses. The book's Introduction points out that an alternate title for this work might have been "The pleasures of private press prospectuses", as these prospectuses themselves have become collectible both as a substitute for the books themselves which are often scarce or rare, and not inexpensive to obtain; and because they offer an insight into "the activities and intentions of the press concerned". The Whittington Press is singularly appropriate as a publisher of the joys of fine press printing, being renowned today for their own publications. The separate portfolio of original prospectuses for this volume includes: Rampant Lions Press (Areopagitica), Chilmark Press (The Mountains), Gwasg Gregynog (Deaths and Entrances), Inky Parrot (The Return of A.J.

        A Hamady Wilde Sampler / Salutations.

      Mount Hebron, Wisconsin: The Perishable Press, 2001. Mount Hebron, Wisconsin:: The Perishable Press,, 2001.. Edition of 95. 28 x 19 cm (11 x 7 7/16"); 124 page surfaces (103 printed). Letterpress printed in Gill Sans typeface. Printed on hand-made and mould-made papers. includes tip-ins, affixations, embossments. Bound in ten gatherings and hand-sewn. Fitted with a folded wrapper printed with an enlarged postal cancellation mark. Signed and numbered. Hamady (7/6/1917): "These books ae pristine, as issued by the printer/publisher. Unlike the secondary market they are somehow of a better upbringing. Colophon: "Writing letters is passé in our modern world of e-mail and seems to raise the same eyebrow as mention of NOT having a television set! It is still an elegant way to communicate without intrusion or urgency, directly and quietly into the intended consciousness at a pace neither slow nor fast. "Some explanation of this text is contained in the prefatory and suffixial notes. We are hopeful that these excerpts and truncations will tease the reader's imagination to wonder what the whole of each might contain. Perhaps questions will arise out of this reporting and enumberation of commonplace events in two lives." Suffixial aegistical notes: "As stated earlier in the 'expurgated prefatory aegistical notes' this book is a listing or enumeration of letters (and a few postcards) exchanged between Hamady and Wilde through the years 1971 - 2000. Though not 'independently verified' there appears to be 1159 extant and in hand. "Eight (previous) collaborations are chronicled here in the ninth though at times tergiversational and snippetted. You, the reader, must understand at this outset that the work here under private scrutiny is a bibliographic document itemizing a correspondence begun in 1971 and is the concordance of that intercourse. "Also it must be understood that for each entry there is beneath a berg for the tip. As a segmented evolution, with no determined destination other than the voyage itself, this text and what it represents, could, conceivably, cause a certain difficult affliction to those who preacertain a preference for plot or conclusion. "The text was prepared directly from holographic letters and envelopes sent over from Porter Township. Schreibmachined carbons without envelopes or signature were generated her in Perry. Of course documentation is lopsidedly incomplete without studying the originals in equiponderation. "Our perceptive reader will note other anomalies e.g. some letters have identical dates or dates too close to make reciprocity through the post office. Which means the letters are crossing which may further imply that one writer doesn't give a hoot what the other has to say - though exchanged ideas to transpire eventually in a delayed syncopation. Also the many aliases usually forged from specificities in the lacunae of text will obfusk the identify of who wrote what. Since these writers seem not to care why should anyone else?
