Beiliegend Textheft, 16 Seiten. Enclosed a textheft, 16 pages. Mit einer CD-ROM mit einem Video-Film von Wiebke Loeper. With a CD-ROM showing a film by Wiebke Loeper. Gebunden. Hardcover. Illustrated boards. Sonderausgabe in einer Auflage von 15 Exemplaren in einer leinengebundenen, handgefertigten Kassette der Buchbinderei Rottmann, Berlin, mit einem signierten handgefertigten C-Print von Wiebke Loeper. Collectors edition in a handmade clothbound box by Rottmann bookbinding, Berlin with a signed C-Print ( 30 x 40 cm), edition of 15 copies.. Mit Beiträgen von Richard Sennett. Übersetzt von Sophie Lovell. Eine Sammlung von Bildern aus Pommern, Mecklenburg und Wisconsin. Wiebke Loeper zeigt in ihrem Buch Familienbilder zweier Männer. Beide haben in Pommern Schlachter bzw. Metzger gelernt, nahmen aber dann sehr unterschiedliche Lebenswege. Loeper zeichnet ihre Biografien nach. Sie vergleicht ihre Lebenswege und ihre alltägliche Arbeit als Schlachter in Wisconsin und Mecklenburg. Thomas Kothenschulte beschreibt in seiner Rezension in der Frankfurter Rundschau am 18.05.2002 das Buch wie folgt:"ein liebevolles Bändchen, das so streng und konzeptuell anmutet". Es war einmal...so könnte die Geschichte beginnen, die Wiebke Loeper ... erzählt. Was zuerst als Sammelsurium von historischen Portrait- Familienaufnahmen, Postkarten und ausgebleichten Erinnerungsfotos daherkommt, entpuppt sich schließlich als die Dokumentation einer eindrucksvollen Familiengeschichte. Schon als Enkelin lauscht Wiebke Loeper ihrem Großvater Willi andächtig, wenn dieser Kindheitsgeschichten vom Hof und Familienbetrieb in Pommern erzählt. Und davon, dass es auch einen Onkel Willy in Amerika gab...Als Cousins geboren in Pommern lernten Beide den Beruf des Fleischers. Getrennt durch Weltwirtschaftskrise und Krieg ließ sich der Eine in den USA, der Andere in der späteren DDR nieder. Subtil, aber konzentriert begleitet die junge, in Leipzig ausgebildete Fotografin, das aus den Alben und Nachlässen ihrer Familie gesammelte Bildmaterial durch dokumentarische Aufnahmen aus der eigenen Hand. Die Fotografien des noch handwerklich geprägten Berufsalltags lassen ebenso wie die privaten Bilder die Unterschiede zwischen den Kontinenten verschwimmen und zeigen damit überraschende Parallelen im Lebensweg der beiden Verwandten auf. Rezension zum Buch, Claudia Stein, Photography Now 1.02, Berlin (D) Wiebke Loeper 1972 in Ost-Berlin geboren, studierte Fotografie bei den Professoren Arno Fischer und Johannes Brohm an der renomierten Leipziger Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst. Die Serie "Hello from Bloomer" ist ihre Master-Arbeit, die sie bei Professor Brohm erfolgreich abgeschlossen hat. Loeper ist vor allem für ihre (auto)biographischen Arbeiten bekannt, die mehrfach weltweit gezeigt wurden. International bekannt geworden ist vor allem durch die Serie MOLL 31, über ihre ehemalige Wohnung in einem Ost-Berliner Hochhaus, ebenfalls als Buch bei Heckenhauer erschienen. Limited, numbered edition of 750 copies.Limitierte, numerierte Edition in einer Auflage von 750 Exemplaren Photographer Wiebke Loeper shows in her book the family pictures of two men, side by side. Both were apprenticed as butchers in Pomerania - but from then on theier lives take widly disparate paths. Loeper traces their biographies. She discovers and compares their private lives as well as their day to day work in their respective butcher's shops in Wisconsin (USA) and Mecklenburg (former 'East Germany).Wiebke Loeper, born 1972 in East-Berlin, studied photography at the famous Leipzig "Hochschule fuer Grafik und Buchkunst", (HGB) with Professor Arno Fischer and Johannes Brohm. This book is a documenation of her master-work, which was guided by Professor Brohm. Wiebke Loeper became famous for her (auto)biographical work, which was shown worldwide in many shows. Her main work is the series MOLL 31, about a flat in East-Berlin, where she grew up. The book MOLL 31 was also published by Heckenhauer.

        DAS SCHWARZE STUNDENBUCH - Faksimile Luzern

      Luzern, Faksimile Verlag, 2001. Hier verkaufen wir die Faksimile-Ausgabe des Schwarzen Stundenbuches. Das Original entstand um 1475 in Brügge. Vermutlich war Willem Vrelant, der berühmte flämische Buchmaler, der Meister dieser Handschrift. Sie ist vollständig auf schwarzgefärbtem Pergament geschrieben. Von den drei einzigen gebunden erhaltenen schwarzen Pergamenthandschriften weltweit ist diese die einzige mit ganzseitigen Miniaturen. Heute wird die Handschrift als M. 493 in der Pierpont Morgan Library in New York aufbewahrt. Der Faksimile Verlag Luzern schuf 2001 in aufwändiger Handarbeit lediglich 980 Exemplare (streng limitiert und handnummeriert). Diese Faksimile-Ausgabe ist beim Verlag vergriffen und dort nicht mehr erhältlich. - Angebotsumfang: 1 Band Faksimile, 1 Band wissenschaftlicher Kommentar, Acryglasschuber, Dokumentationsmappe mit 2 Faksimileseiten - bis ins Detail dem Original aus dem 15. Jahrhundert nachempfunden; Originalformat von ca. 17,0 x 12,0 cm; alle 121 Pergamentfolios (242 Seiten) schwarz gefärbt; 14 großformatige Miniaturen; strahlend blau grundierte Bordüren; zahlreiche smaragdgrün hinterlegte Zierinitialen; 3-Seiten-Goldschnitt; jede Seite randbeschnitten und handgeheftet; Einband aus schwarzem Samt, geschmückt mit vergoldeten Zierknöpfen und vergoldeten Schließe - traumhaftes Buch für bibliophile Sammler und Kunstkenner, auf 980 Exemplare weltweit limitiert, Exemplar trägt Nr. 447, stammt aus sehr gepflegtem Nichtraucherhaushalt, verlagsfrischer Zustand (ungelesen), Goldschnitt mit minimalen Lagerspuren an den Kanten, Acrylglasschuber mit normalen Kratzern und leichter Beschädigung (Bruchstück fehlt - siehe Foto) - Die flämische Stadt Brügge zählte im 15. Jahrhundert zu den wichtigsten Handelsmetropolen Europas und galt außerdem als Zentrum der Buchmalerei. Die Entstehung der schwarzen Handschriften ist eng mit dem Aufstieg der Burgunderherzöge verknüpft. Der burgundische Hof übertraf in seiner Extravaganz und Prunksucht bald alles in Europa bisher Dagewesene und wurde Vorbild für die Hofhaltung europäischer Fürsten. Als der Vater Philipp des Guten, Johann Ohnefurcht, am 10. September 1419 von Dienern des französischen Königs erdolcht wurde, war Philipp 23 Jahre alt. Rächen durfte er diesen Mord nicht, wohl aber seiner Trauer sichtbaren Ausdruck verleihen. Als Philipp noch lange nach Ablauf der Trauerfrist schwarz trägt, beginnt dies auf den Adel und schließlich sogar auf das reiche Bürgertum Flanderns abzufärben. Fortan gehörte es in Flandern zum guten Ton, sich schwarz zu kleiden. Diesem Fakt verdanken wir das um 1475 entstandene Schwarze Stundenbuch. - Sammlerstück und Wertanlage - Erwerben Sie hier eine wahre Rarität zu einem absoluten top Preis. Das Buch wurde als Renditeobjekt erworben!.

It takes full account of Christianity's ecclesiastical branches, subdivisions, and denominations, and treats Christianity in relation to other faiths and the secular realm. It offers an unparalleled comparative study of churches and religions throughout the modern world. This new edition features a vast range of new and previously unpublished data on the current global situation of Christianity, on religion in general, and on the political, demographic, economic, and social characteristics of the world's cultures and peoples in 238 countries. Each volume is filled with essential information, from historical surveys of denominations to country-by-country profiles of churches and believers. The text sets the current status of Christianity into a rich historical context, and assesses current trends and future directions. Many tables, charts, diagrams, photographs, a directory of names and organizations, a glossary, index, and other features ensure accessibility for specialists and non-specialists alike. The Encyclopedia will be of great value to academics of many disciplines, clergy, administrators, and those who work in Christian and other religious organizations around the world, as well as to anyone interested in current affairs.

        Somebody Blew Up America

      Oakland layout by blackdotpress 2001 - 8vo., yellow wrappers lettered in black with front-cover portrait of Baraka by Emory Douglas, stapled. First edition, first printing, of the most controversial poem of the 21st Century. A presentation copy, inscribed by Baraka to Marvin X. Jackmon: "For Marvin, All Goodness --- Amiri Baraka, 12/9/01," on the title page ---- Marvin X, along with Ed Bullins, founded The Black Arts/West Theatre in San Francisco. Both playwrights and LeRoi Jones (Baraka) became a major nucleus of Black Arts leadership ---- Shortly after its publication, Baraka’s "Somebody Blew Up America," a poem about the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, was alternately praised for its frankness and criticized for what others called its anti-Semitic content. Recently appointed poet laureate of New Jersey, Baraka claimed that the poem was misinterpreted. State lawmakers voted in 2003 to eliminate the position of poet laureate altogether. “Long live the revolutionary spirit of Amiri Baraka,” said Marvin X, shortly after Baraka passed away in January 2014. A compelling piece of African Americana [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Maybe Maybe Not

      Switzerland: Ink Tree, 2001. Switzerland: Ink Tree, 2001. Extreme tips of the top page edges lightly tapped, top rear cover gently bumped, else close to fine in white wrappers and folding card chemise, housed in a matching card slipcase.. First Edition. Thin folio. Number 172 of an edition of 300 numbered copies, SIGNED, dated, and numbered by Christopher Wool. A series of 23 reproductions of high-contrast photocopies of Wool's Polaroids of his abstract canvases, which have been layered with superimposed swathes of black and white paint. Printed in a grainy Xerox aesthetic reminiscent of Wool's 1993 photobook Absent Without Leave, this collection elucidates the central role of photography to his artistic process and practice. Photography remains the least well understood and documented component of Wool's oeuvre; his long-standing relationship with photographing his own work is of seminal importance.

        HATESHIP, FRIENDSHIP, COURTSHIP, LOVESHIP, MARRIAGE

      Toronto, Canada: McClelland & Stewart, 2001. Toronto, Canada: McClelland & Stewart, 2001. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. Toronto, Canada: McClelland & Stewart, 2001. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 323 pages. Rare Alice Munro collectible set. A rare signed copy of "Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage" with a rare copy of The New Yorker Magazine Millennial December 27, 1999/January 3, 2000 Issue. One of Alice Munro&#39;s greatest achievements. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the American Edition. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Alice Munro&#39;s tenth collection of short stories. Nine luminous pieces in which "men and women are subtly revealed. Personal histories, both complex and simple, unfold in rich detail of circumstance and feeling" (Publisher&#39;s blurb). The final story, "The Bear Came Over The Mountain", first appeared in The New Yorker Magazine Millennial Holiday Issue, was subsequently turned into a very fine film (entitled "Away From Her") by Sarah Polley. To celebrate Alice Munro&#39;s Nobel Prize win, it was published by The New Yorker in its entirety again (it&#39;s a novella-length story, taking up a third of the Issue, an unmistakable sign of The New Yorker&#39;s commitment to Munro in particular and its great writer-contributors in general) for its October 21, 2013 Issue. "A stunningly precise writer who is often able to say more in 30 pages than an ordinary novelist is capable of in 300. Munro writes about what are usually called ordinary people, but her intelligence, compassion, and astonishing power of perception enable her to give their lives a remarkable dignity, indeed redemption, since she shows how much of The Extraordinary can fit into that jam-packed emptiness called The Ordinary" (Nobel Prize Citation). An absolute "must-have" set for Alice Munro collectors. <B><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Alice Munro. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. It comes with a rare copy of The New Yorker Magazine Millennial Holiday Issue, in which the collection&#39;s "summing-up" story, "The Bear Came Over The Mountain", originally appeared. Throughout her long career, Munro made very few public appearances, and is a reluctant signer at best. As such, most of her books are signed on a bookplate, which are much less desirable than copies signed on either the title page or tipped-in page. This title is a classic. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Beware: Most copies available online are subsequent printings or have serious flaws. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013. One of the greatest living writers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ALICE MUNRO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0771065256.

Printed in a tiny print run in October 2001 just weeks after 9/11. Oakland layout by blackdotpress. Yellow softcover side stapled with cover art by Emory Douglas. Unpaginated. This true 1st edition precedes the House of Nehesi edition by 2 years. SIGNED and DATED by AMIRI BARAKA in 2001, the year of publication. The most talked about and controversial poem of the 21st century. Baraka's infamous poem about racism in America with imagery of the attacks on 9/11 which ignited a firestorm of controversy. Amiri Baraka was the Poet Laureate of New Jersey, and as a result of Somebody blew up America and the surrounding publicity, then Governor Jim McGreevy abolished the post of Poet Laureate of New Jersey in an effort to remove Baraka from this honorary post.
