      Edition J.J. Heckenhauer,, Tuebingen / Berlin, 2001 - Tuebingen / Berlin, Edition J.J. Heckenhauer, 2001. Folio, 31 x 24 cm Mit 23 Original C-prints, with 23 C-prints. Geprägtes Original Leinen der Buchbinderei Rottmann / Berlin, handgebunden. Clothbound and hand-bound / sewed by Rottmann bookbinding, Berlin. Herausragendes Künstlerbuch mit 23 Original-Fotografien, in einer Auflage von nur 5 Exemplaren erschienen, wovon nur noch zwei Exemplare erhältlich sind. Siigniert, numeriert. Exceptional work by the Berlin based photographer Jens Liebchen, who became famous for his book "DL07 - stereotypesof war - a photographic investigation", ref. Parr/Badger,Vol II. p. 312-13. Limited edition of only five copies. Hand bound. Only two copies left. „Parameters of Movement I" is a project which looks at the phenomena of migration and movement in Siberia. What is happening in these times of growing mobility, of globalisation and increasing urbanisation, to a region which is perceived (at least in the Western World) as a cliché per se: A weird place distinguished by it s special historical and climatic destiny. In this respect, the term "movement" refers not only to migration but also to the modernising processes that are taking place in this infamous post-socialist province. There is no story here as such in narrative form. The series shows insights into daily life in Ulan Ude and the Baikal region: Burjat teenagers with the posture of post-modern youth, or a modern, customized Volga – the car that for decades was the exclusive status symbol of communist party functionaries The photos function as parameters in terms of a mathematical presentation. Which cultural signposts determine the future of life? And which parameter does an individual use to define the space between reality and dream? Jens Liebchen, 2002 Geprägtes Original Leinen der Buchbinderei Rottmann / Berlin, handgebunden. Clothbound and hand-bound / sewed by Rottmann bookbinding, Berlin.

        MY NAME IS RED

      New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2001. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2001. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 417 pages. The author&#39;s breakthrough historical novel, the fourth to be translated into English. One of the greatest novels of our time. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a Hardcover Edition (the British Edition is a softcover original) , the book remains Pamuk&#39;s single most popular novel in the West. Presents Orhan Pamuk&#39;s "Benim Adim Kirmizi" in a felicitous English translation by Erdag Goknar. "In 16th-century Istanbul, master miniaturist and illuminator of books Enishte Effendi is commissioned to illustrate a book celebrating the Sultan. Soon he lies dead at the bottom of a well. How he got there is the crux of the novel. A number of narrators give testimony to what they know about the circumstances surrounding the murder. The stories accumulate and become more detailed as the novel progresses, giving the reader not only an unconventional murder mystery but insight into the mores and customs of the time. Creatively casts the novel with colorful characters and provides a palpable sense of atmosphere of the Ottoman Empire that both history buffs and literary fans will appreciate" (Marc Kloszewski) . Pamuk&#39;s books are censored and often banned outright in his native Turkey, a culture that has to strike a delicate balance between (Eastern) Islam and (Western) secularism. The threat to one&#39;s freedom makes writing even more urgent and turns talented writers into great ones. His most passionate critic/admirer in America, the late great novelist John Updike, chose "Snow" as the best novel of the year 2004, bar none. A masterpiece, this is a "must-have" title for Orhan Pamuk collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the half-title page by Orhan Pamuk. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award in 2003 for "My Name Is Red". Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2006, the first Turkish writer to be so deservedly honored. One of the greatest living writers. A fine collectible copy.

He has contributed a literate and concise essay, "A Brief History of The Male Nude In The USA", which appears as an Afterword in this book only. Printed on pristine-white archival stock paper in Berlin, Germany to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents an overview of the pioneering work of Dave Martin, who was active for three decades, between the 1950&#39;s and 1970&#39;s. By common consensus, his best work was done during his first decade, when he set up shop in San Francisco and somehow persuaded the athletes at nearby Stanford University to pose au naturel for him. Today, Stanford owns the single largest collection of Dave Martin&#39;s work (about 2600 prints in all) , a proud and important part of its Permanent Photography Collection. The All-American look that remains pervasive to this day (and enjoys universal status as the emblem of male beauty and desirability) is due in large part to the efforts of pioneers like Lon of New York. Deeply influenced by the latter, Dave Martin sought to capture this look from the more casual, relaxed, and informal West Coast perspective, a brilliant counterpoint to Lon&#39;s Classically-inspired nudes, which capture the cosmopolitan East Coast and its Old World, European elegance. That he would have the cream of the crop, Stanford University athletes, as his models remains one of the major coups in the history of male nude photography. "Jim Warren 1953": Original silver-gelatin print by Dave Martin, who produced his own prints, a practice that most contemporary photographers now largely consign to highly specialized print developers. The print measures 10 X 8 inches and shows what is probably Dave Martin&#39;s single most handsome discovery, the Stanford athlete Jim Warren, in one of his most beautiful poses. The print is encased in its own protective plastic sheet. Jim Warren appears in Martin&#39;s book and is one of Dave Martin&#39;s most avidly collected subject/models. He anticipates by more than thirty years the All-American supermodels of Bruce Weber, Herb Ritts, and Greg Gorman. This is the genuine article, a collectible, not just memorabilia, set for Dave Martin and male nude photography collectors. <b><i> This copy of "Dave Martin: American Photography of The Male Nude" comes with an original silver-gelatin print of "Jim Warren 1953", which is very prominently and beautifully titled and signed in pencil on verso by Dave Martin. Jim Warren is his real name, and he was an athlete at Stanford University. His portrait is one of the most stunningly beautiful male nudes we have ever seen. This is the only such set available online and has no flaws, pristine beauties. A rare signed set thus. </b></i> Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white plates, 1 original print. One of the finest American photographers of the male nude of the 20th century. A flawless collectible set. (SEE ALSO LON OF NEW YORK TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 3925443673.

        LOUISE BOURGEOIS: THE INSOMNIA DRAWINGS - COMPLETE IN TWO VOLUMES (SPECIAL EDITION)

      (BOURGEOIS, LOUISE). Bourgeois, Louise, Marie-Laure Bernadac & Elisabeth Bronfen. LOUISE BOURGEOIS: THE INSOMNIA DRAWINGS - COMPLETE IN TWO VOLUMES (SPECIAL EDITION). Zurich, SWITZERLAND & New York: DAROS, Peter Blum Edition & Scalo, 2001. First Edition 1/1500 Deluxe. 4to. Linen Over Boards, Slipcased. Artist Monographs. Fine/No Jackets - As Issued.. 438 + 132pp, 445 color illustrations. Text in English and French. "Insomnia has been a lifetime companion of Louise Bourgeois&#39; night hours. Between November 1994 and June 1995, she committed to paper whatever thoughts, memories, and images surfaced during her long sleepless nights. The resulting two hundred and twenty drawings are the quintessence of all the impulses, sources, and motifs that inspire her work. The Insomnia Drawings show the artist&#39;s mind at work: drawings and sketches alternate with poems and aphorisms in both French and English, interspersed with notes referring to the business of everyday life. The series is a unique mirror of an extraordinary woman&#39;s life and work: beautiful, disquieting, passionate, inquiring, and imbued with a quirky sense of humor. The first volume contains facsimiles of both the recto and verso of the drawings. The second volume provides the reader with valuable background information on this complex and exhilaratingly beautiful work of art". A most handsome copy (#529/1500) of this massive set still in the publisher&#39;s shrinkwrap of the elegantly produced special edition bound in debossed, silkscreened Japanese linen over boards limited to one thousand, five hundred numbered copies showing some tiny creases to a few corners of its printed cardboard slipcase.

        The Cosmic * Sidereal * Galactic Abecedarium of the Universe & Other Tangential Star Ephemera

      San Diego: False Bay Editions, 2001. Stiff Boards. Fine. Stiff Boards. Copy C of 26 lettered copies. This gorgeous alphabet book captures the wonder and joy of the cosmos through words, pictures, and various imaginative and inventive visual constructions throughout the book. There are windows, foldouts, items that pull out, cutouts, a flexagon, and many others. In their colophon, the authors say: "This ABC book of the universe was created from March to November, 2011. During this period Jim&#39;s mother Agnes died and took her place among the stars. Sibyl&#39;s husband Al had successful open-heart surgery, and then the September 11th tragedy occurred. Throughout it all the stars remained our constant as we created visuals with photopolymer plates, wood type, monoprinting, digital imaging, and a zinc intaglio plate for the cover." These visuals illustrate and adorn each letter, for which five words are given relating to the universe. Some of the text describes the discoveries by such figures as Tycho Brahe and Johannes Kepler. There are also quotes from luminaries such as Shakespeare, Walt Whitman, Oscar Wilde, Eudora Welty, and Lord Byron. The text was printed on a Vandercook Universal I letterpress using Venus and Clarendon types on Somerset Book, Fabriano Rosapina Bianco, and Rives BFK papers. Bound in heavy black and white paper stock with astral designs. The rear flap slides into a red paper square on cover to close. About 8 x 8 inches. A magical book in fine condition.

      Hamburg, Germany: Kruse Verlag, 2001. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Hamburg, Germany: Kruse Verlag, 2001. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 112 pages. The photographer&#39;s breakthrough debut collection. One of the greatest photography books of our time. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the Reissued Edition. The latter has a different ISBN. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Karin Apollonia Muller: Oversize-volume format in wide oblong shape. Glossy pictorial hard boards with green titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Karin Apollonia Muller. Text by Rodney Sappington. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Hamburg, Germany to absolutely the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents one of the most powerful photographic debuts of our time, a sequence of images of Los Angeles by an artist who is an outsider and therefore acutely sees what insiders (which every Angeleno is, one way or another) are too close for comfort to see: "A world where the synthetic and the global have overtaken the natural and the local, where the landscape has become a mercurial web of living dreams. Her images are both immediately real and eerily distant depictions of the vertiginous changes unraveling our everyday lives. She captures an era in which economic change is written on the streets, on human bodies, and on every form of the environment. A moving visual document of the world&#39;s most bewildering and most beguiling city" (Rodney Sappington). Born in 1963 in Heidelberg, Karin Apollonia Muller studied at the Folkwang School Essen. She has worked, taught, and travelled in her native Germany, Italy, and China. She works in color, deploying a pure, understated, and nuanced palette that is the antithesis of Andreas Gursky&#39;s saturated (and equally compelling) colors. It works beautifully for Los Angeles, whose blur and haze, the "smog" we identify with the city, are captured beautifully without rendering the work topical. Environmentalists claim her as one of them, but whatever her personal opinion may be about the environment, Muller is an artist, not an activist. Her work is in the Permanent Collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the George Eastman House, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum, among others. European (and of course, American) artists are endlessly fascinated by Los Angeles in a way that they are not by much-more-picturesque San Francisco. The great Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni once commented that San Francisco was "charming", that is to say, not his kind of city, but found Los Angeles "mesmerizing", making it the setting of his apocalyptic "Zabriskie Point", one of the greatest films of the 20th century. Karin Apollonia Muller is his kindred spirit, and her book is nothing less than a masterpiece. A "must-have" title for Karin Apollonia Muller collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Karin Apollonia Muller. This is an Import title and is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only signed copy of the First Edition/First Printing available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 44 color plates. Karin Apollonia Muller&#39;s "Angels In Fall" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the most brilliant living photographers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER KARIN APOLLONIA MULLER TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 3934923097.

San Francisco, CA: Fraenkel Gallery/Distributed Art Publishers, 2001. Hardcover. Fine/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 96 pages. Retrospective collection of photographs. One of Lee Friedlander&#39;s finest achievements. Limited Edition of 2000 copies. The edition sold out shortly after publication and is now rare. A brilliant production by Lee Friedlander and Catherine Mills: Oversize-volume format. Glossy pictorial hard boards with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Lee Friedlander. Introductory Essay by the late great Walker Evans. The piece was written by Evans in 1963 after he saw the photographs, and appears in published form for the very first time. Separations by Thomas Palmer. Printed in duotone on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by Meridian Printing Company in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in a Limited Edition format, Lee Friedlander&#39;s "The Little Screens". "A revered and influential body of early work by Lee Friedlander, it has never before been brought together in its entirety. The book&#39;s title refers to the television screens housed in motel rooms and other nondescript rooms of anonymous character spread throughout the country during the 1960&#39;s. Each screen vividly transmits images of popular culture icons, political figures, and celebrities of the time. The environments are iconographic ghost-rooms filled with bland furniture-rooms, rooms that could be, and are, anywhere and everywhere. Weaves a narrative of a peripatetic photographer moving through the landscape of 1960&#39;s America, and the melancholy, yet sometimes comic, quality of life lived on the road. Provides a look at the 1960&#39;s, as so many people saw it: Beamed into their televisions and flickering across their living rooms" (Publisher&#39;s blurb). Friedlander&#39;s evocations of harmless, small-town banality and creeping menace at the same time prefigure the work of the film director David Lynch, notably "Blue Velvet" (1986), as well as Nan Goldin&#39;s eerie images of empty motel rooms. An absolute "must-have" title for Lee Friedlander collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the front free endpaper by Lee Friedlander. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Although it is a Limited Edition, Friedlander did not sign most copies of the book. This title is a modern photography classic. This is one of very few signed copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Copies available online command as much as $1200. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 34 duotone plates. Lee Friedlander&#39;s "The American Monument" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in both "The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of The Twentieth Century" and "The Photobook". One of the greatest living photographers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LEE FRIEDLANDER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1881337111.
