        Policing Pleasure

      Pittsburgh, PA:: Dionysus Press,, 2004.. Edition of 100. 6 x 10"; 28 pages. 16 pigmented photographs. Housed in handcrafted hardwood slipcase. Images printed using pigmented inks on 100% cotton paper. Handmade Japanese gampi paper interleaf between text and plates. Text set in Plantin and transferred onto polymer plates by Boxcar Press. Text paper handmade by Twinrocker. Letterpress printed on a Vandercook proofing press. Digitally printed, letterpress printed and bound by the photographer. Dennis Marsico: "The churches and cathedrals of Italy's renaissance stir the senses from the moment the threshold is crossed. The sheer volume of the space, the interweaving of textures, the silence, the smells, the artificial light mixing with diffused daylight, the local patrons, the tourists, the constant renovation, all compete for attention. But for me, the focus has always been the art and the confessionals; the art provokes fantasies as the confessionals provoke guilt, the yin-yang of the roman church. "Policing Pleasure" pays homage to this dichotomy. "Policing Pleasure," the book, is a companion to an extensive portfolio project. "The original images were photographed between 1988 and 1995 in Emilia-Romagna, Umbria and Tuscany. The emergence of the fantasized deities in some of the photographs miraculously and digitally occurred in 2002.

        Explication de l';arithmétique binaire, Que se sert seul caractéres 0 & 1; avec des Remarques sur son utilité, & sur ce qu';elle donne le sens des anciennes figures Chinoises de Fohy. IN: Histoire de L';Academie Royale des Sciences. Année M.DCC.III. SecondeEdition, revûe, corrigée & augmentée.Paris: Chez Charles-Estienne Hochereau, 1720, pp. 85-89

      - Rare second edition of a seminal work on binary arithmetic by Gottfried Leibniz; "Explication de l'arithmétique binaire, Que se sert seul caractéres 0 & 1" or (An Explanation of Binary Arithmetic Using only the Characters 0 and 1?). "Leibniz was the first mathematician thoroughly to study the binary system upon which all modern digital computers are based" and he was also one of the first people to appreciate base-two binary arithmetic and the fact that everything can be represented using only ones and zeroes" (Heilbron, J.L., ed, The Oxford Companion to the History of Modern Science, p. 172; Chaitin, Gregory. "Leibniz, Randomness & the Halting Probability. Dedicated to Alan Turing on the 50th Anniversary of his Death" (Mathematics Today, August 2004, p. 138). "In 1679, Leibniz imagined a digital computer in which binary numbers were represented as spherical pellets, circulating within a kind of pinball machine governed by a rudimentary form of punched-card control. 'This [binary] calculus could be implemented by a machine (without wheels),' he wrote, 'in the following manner, easily to be sure and without effort. A container shall be provided with holes in such away that they can be opened and closed. They are to be open at those places that correspond to a 1 and remain closed at those that correspond to a 0. Through the opened gates small cubes or marbles are to fall into tracks, through the other nothing. It [the gate array] is to be shifted from column to column as required.' In the shift of registers at the heart of the electronic microprocessor voltage gradients and pulses of electrons have taken the place of gravity and marbles, but otherwise things are running exactly as envisioned by Leibniz in 1679" (Dyson, George. Darwin Among the Machines: The Evolution of Global Intelligence, p. 37). Although Leibniz conceived the application of binary arithmetic to computing in 1679, the machine he outlined was never built, and he published nothing on the subject until his "Explication," this paper. "Explication "further includes a "Tables des nombres" with examples of numbers in both the binary and conventional system, and the four arithmetical operations in the binary system. Leibniz "sensed in the 0 and 1 bits the combination power to create the entire universe, which is exactly what happens in modern digital electronic computers and the rest of our digital information technology" (Chaitin, Gregory. Meta Math: The Quest for Omega). ALSO IN THIS VOLUME: Two major works by Jakob Bernoulli: Demonstration Generale and Extrait d'une lettre? de sa Regle du Centre de Balancement (78-84; 272-83). With Demonstration, Bernoulli "returned to the famous problem of the search for a center of oscillation, and gave a solution of it" (Dugas, History of Mechanics, 243). Memoires further contains seminal papers by Cassini and de la Hire, among others. CONDITION & DETAILS: In: Histoire de L'Academie Royale des Sciences. Année MDCCIII. Paris: Chez Charles-Estienne Hochereau, Seconde Edition, 1720. 12 folding engraved copperplates. 4to (10.5 x 8.25; 262 x 206mm). Beautifully rebound in full calf to match the original bindings of the period. 5 raised bands at the spine, gilt-tooled in the compartments. 2 red morocco spine labels, also gilt-tooled.

        Sigmar Polke: Daphne,

      Köln, Snoek, 2004, 1. Aufl., 440 S., m. Abb., 41,5 x 29 , Hardcoverband m. SU u. OSchuber. (978-3-936859-00-3) - Eins von 1.000 nummeriert und signierten Examplaren, von denen die ersten 100 in einer Namensliste die Subskribenden nennen. Das von Reiner Speck in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Künstler konzipierte Buch »Daphne« gibt Einblick in die Werkstatt Sigmar Polkes und in das durch subtile Ironie bestimmte Werk eines der bedeutendsten Künstler der Gegenwart. Mit dieser Anthologie von Bildfindungsquellen und Dokumenten wird Polkes Schöpfungsprozeß in vierundzwanzig Kapiteln am Beispiel von großformatigen Fotokopien beleuchtet. So offenbart sich die ungewöhnliche Methodik einer Bildgenese. Die alte Form des handlichen Skizzenbuches scheint abgelöst vom Aktenordner, der diese manipulierten Blätter aus Kopiergeräten versammelt. Irgendwann einmal wird das ein oder andere Blatt zum Motiv eines großen Bildes oder eines kleineren graphischen Zyklus’. Die Dramaturgie später zu schaffender Werke beginnt vor dem Kopiergerät, ihre Dramatik wird durch Hand und Blick des Künstlers bestimmt. Druckpunkt und Raster, Sujet und Geschwindigkeit bestimmen das scheinbar unvorhersehbare und zuweilen schwer deutbare Geheimnis eines Bildes, dessen Entwürfe dem Abfall einer Reproduktionsmaschine gleichen. Auch wenn die im Buch dokumentierten Sujets nur einen kleinen Einblick in die bisher geheimgehaltenen Arbeitsschränke und Archive des Künstlers geben, so ist es doch ein wesentlicher. Das Einzigartige des vorgelegten Bandes ist die tautologische Handhabung und Reflexion seines Entstehungsprozesses: Die Originalkopien wurden im gleichen Verfahren in ihrer ursprünglichen Größe reproduziert, geordnet und gebündelt. Erstmals ist so ein Künstlerbuch mit einer solchen Aura an Authentizität entstanden, so daß anhand dessen Walter Benjamins Essay »Das Kunstwerk im Zeitalter seiner technischen Reproduzierbarkeit« neu gelesen werden muß. (Sehr gut erhalten.) Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 5200 Hardcoverband m. SU u. OSchuber. [Attributes: First Edition]

      V.p.: Various publishers, 2004. Mostly first editions. Most are in exceptional condition in original dust-jackets. The Robert Wilson Collection of James Merrill A virtually complete collection of James Merrill's books, formed over several years by the former proprietor of the Phoenix Bookshop in Manhattan, Robert Wilson, who was also a collector, author, an occasional publisher - and friend of Merrill's. Their close attachment is not only clearly seen in the numerous inscriptions penned in these volumes; it is also in evidence in the sparkling collection of postcards which Merrill sent to Wilson from 1976 through 1986, and which Wilson carefully preserved.Wilson's collection contains all of the major books and principal rarities, including his first two (privately printed) books, JIM'S BOOK, and BLACK SWANN, each inscribed in the year of publication; first editions of all of his trade publications, usually both in hardback and paperback; his privately printed rarities (e.g., THE THOUSAND AND SECOND NIGHT, Athens, 1963 - one of 50 copies); all of the novels, including proofs and advance review copies. Included as well, are a number of early appearances in periodicals, and much ephemera.Details are available upon request.

        Soul Book: “?”

      Redwood City, California:: Judith of Serebrin Books & Prints,, 2004.. One-of-a-Kind. 4 x 5.75 x 2.75" ceramic sculpture. Two miniature books: each 2.625 x 1.25"; 74 and 70 pages. Materials: porcelain, pastepapers, and thread. This box like sculpture has two heads erupting from the top. Each "soul" has a wordless miniature book tucked into the sculpture. The miniature books are mixed media on paper with an exposed link and kettle stitch binding. Judith Serebrin: "People often think that their stories are not important, or they may not feel safe enough to tell them. Most of us can't listen well enough to hear each other's stories, let alone those of other creatures. I do think it is possible to though—on both counts. What is inside all of us is exciting, rich, complicated and important. "These objects are a tactile and symbolic way of reaching into someone's soul without embarrassment, censorship, fear; whatever it is that keeps us from really knowing each other. With these Soul Books you get to look, see, and touch what's inside. "Good things happen when we really get to tell our stories, when someone is really listening and wanting to hear. You learn all kinds of things; the world is a much richer place; healing happens; you get to connect in a unique and honest way; and most importantly, you care. "You cannot make another person/animal an enemy when you know them, when you can really see them. "I've never questioned the fact that animals have souls. I can see them. It is sometimes hard for me to see them in humans—grown up ones. But I think that you can see their souls in their stories, if they get to tell them. I love hearing peoples stories; and everybody has a story to tell.

Terry Braunstein: "I have always been fascinated by non-verbal communication. In this work, I explore the way that hands are used to speak both for those who have voices, and for those who do not. "I realized, after I made this work, that I had been working on pieces about non-verbal communication for years. I think, really, that I have only had about two or three things to say in my whole career as an artist, and have just kept saying them over and over again, each time in a different way.

        Avanti, Lady Mikado!

      Offenbach am Main and Terrinca, Germany:: usus,, 2004.. Edition of 10. 7 x 8"; 40 pages (12 pages with pictures, 28 pages with text). German and English text. Archival ink jet and laser printing. Coptic binding. Bound in unadorned cloth-covered boards. This book was part of a larger project that involved book, print, video, and improvised musical performance.Ulrike Stolz: "Lady Mikado is an interdisciplinary project. [The] starting point was a text I wrote, that turned into an artists' book and is also the background of a portfolio of typographical prints. ... The text that formed the basis of the project is in German. It does not tell a story, but strings together fragments of phrases, parts of which are alienated and repeated and mixed with pictorial passages. The prints in the portfolio use only the text, but words and letters were cut into pieces and then rearranged thus creating new images."The book uses some of these typographical images, combining them with fragments of photographs which creates a tension between the abstract signs and a kind of representation of reality. The book has two parts: text and images are separated. "The whole project is about answers and mirrorings, about transformation and translation: from one language to another, from language into typographic form, from both language and typography into video, from the moving image to music and sound, and to spoken language and text again.
