Combining original prints from contemporary Argentinian artists with texts from the Holy Bible enables the publishers to, as Decherd Turner wrote in an essay on this press, "project an explosive vitality. The text and art have such energy that one would never think "imperial" or "democrat" for "Dos Amigos" books have far too much power ever to be encompassed by such terms. Boundaries fall away, the books reach out to evoke the whole range of human emotions." <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/9720.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        Lo 2001

      EMH Arts Eagle Gallery [London, England]: EMH Arts [Eagle Gallery]. 2001. One of 15 copies all on Velin Arches paper, each signed by the artist, Julia Farrer. Page size: 23-7/16 inches x 4-13/16 inches; 14 leaves printed and cut out. Bound: hand-sewn leporello style in original drab boards, housed in white linen sleeve and slipcase, all by Charles Gledhill, fine. Illustrated with original intaglio prints (hand-colored drypoints) by Julia Farrer, who also editioned the prints. The book has an architectural, pierced structure where a folded geometric image reflects and counterpoints a single poem. The text is printed letter press by Phil Abel at Hand & Eye Letterpress. Judith Thurman and Julia Farrer have collaborated to produce this homage to the memory of their friend, Kate Griffin. A visually stunning production from this collaboration of author and artist. Judith Thurman is the author of well- received biographies of Colette (SECRETS OF THE FLESH) and Isak Dinesen, as well as contributions to "The New Yorker" magazine. Julia Farrer, born in London in 1950, attended The Slade School from 1968-1972 and was a Harkness Fellow at the University of New Mexico and New York from 1974- 1976. Her work is held in many important collections, including the Arts Council of Great Britain, the Ashmoleon Museum of Oxford University, the Yale Center for British Art, the Tate Gallery, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Her recent work explores transformations of geometric compositions from two into three dimensions, across the different media of painting, monoprinting, unique and small run artist&#146;s books.

        Fig. Mezzotints and Screenprints by Judith Rothchild

      Verdigris Press [Octon,France]: Verdigris Press. 2001. One of a few deluxe copies with an extra mezzotint not included in the regular edition from a total of 48 copies, on Hahnemuhle paper, each signed and numbered by the artist, Judith Rothchild. Page size:11-1/4 x 10-3/4 inches; 32pp. Bound: loose in Somerset Velvet Black paper wrappers with green silkscreens; title on front panel and on spine with author and artist's name. Hand-set in Vendand ome printed by Mark Lintott on an Albion press and a Stanhope press. Slipcase and box by Claude Vallin; with silkscreens by Judith Rothchild, fine. Judith Rothchild has chosen to illustrate D.H. Lawrence's provocative poem "Figs" with five round mezzotints and silk-screens. The first mezzotint, a fig leaf, is overprinted with the title. The other four show a whole fig and then ripe figs in various stages of bursting with six silk-screens of fig leaves and branches. A two-color silkscreen of a fig leaf (the second color is red!) faces the colophon. First published in BIRDS, BEASTS, AND FLOWERS (1923), Lawrence's poem achieved greater acclaim when it was used in Ken Russell's film "Women in Love" (1970). This sumptuous combination of text and illustration is sure to fulfill! See an Image.
