        Rats Alley: Trench Names of the Western Front, 1914 - 1918 ( WWI / World War I / One )( Rats' / Rat's )

      Brimscombe Port, Stroud, Gloucestershire, England: Spellmount Limited, 2006, 1st Edition, 1st Printings - -----------hardcover, a lovely Near Fine/Fine copy in a Near Fine/Fine dustjacket, most copies went to libraries, this is NOT exlibrary, 416 pages, b&w photos and maps, map endpapers, ---"The naming of the trenches became general practice during the winter of 1914-15 and these names soon appeared on the embryonic trench maps which were produced in ever growing numbers during the later stages of the war-the British producing some 20 million large-scale maps in all. This fascinating book lists each trench name-and the names of any places, camps, localities, and installations associated with them, their significance, and how to find them with the relevant Map References."---from the front flap: "---the first ever study of trench names of the Western Front and also provides a gazeteer of over 10,000 trench names, complete with map references. Looked at from the point of view of contemporary military givers and users of the names, and from a modern cultural studies angle, the names reveal the full horror of trench warfare as well as throwing an extraordinary sidelight on the cultural life of the period and the landscape and battles of the Western Front. This book now makes it possible via trench naming, the daily life in the trenches, the vast range of weaponry and the lethal nature of the titanic battles. Names such as Lovers Lane, Lavender Walk, Idiots Corner, International Trench, Nonsense Trench, Chaos Trench, Cyanide Trench, Crazy Redoubt, Howl Trench, Unbearable Trench, Doleful Post, Furies Trench, Peril Avenue, Hazard Trench, Lunatic Sap and Gangrene Alley can be placed in context, as can the reason the French called German Trenches Tranchee des Homosexuels, Boyau du Harem and Boyau des Eunuques. Starting with a brief examination of the philosophy of naming, the book looks at the Historical and cultural background of warfare ---. ---how and why trench names were first introduced ---how they developed ---British trench naming, it also includes a comparative element by looking at French and German practice. The gazetteer of 10,000 trench names is displayed, with columns for name, map-sheet and grid references on the British 1914-18 syste, thus enabling readers to identify precise locations on copies of trench maps which are now easily available. The book includes useful information on where original trench maps are held, and how to obtain copies."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        27 - 72

      Icho Cruz, Argentina / Enterprise, Oregon:: Transient Books,, 2006.. Edition of 2. 9.25 x 9.25 x 4.5"; 14 pages. Accordion. Acid-free materials. Giclée prints printed on an Epson Ink Jet Printer. Text and images tipped onto pages of red, blue, green, brown, or rose bookboard pages bound with 1.6" black ribbon. Housed in a black paper-covered clamshell box. Designed and bound by Alex Appella. Two women: aunt / niece; Oregon / Argentina; artist / writer-bookmaker. Alex Appella: "From April 2001 to April 2002, Alex Appella and Eve Slinker maintained an artistic exchange through the mail. Alex was living in the sierras of Córdoba, Argentina. Eve Slinker was living in Wallowa County, Oregon, USA. Alex sent a poem, Eve responded with a painting, and so on over the course of a year. They did not discuss the exchange outside of the artistic responses they sent back and forth. "The book?'s title reflects the ages of the artists: Alex Appella was 27 at the time, and her aunt, Eve Slinker, was 72. The exchange itself mirrors a relationship of mutual inspiration. It is a conversation between the hope of over 7 decades, and the despair of nearly 3. "In October of 2002 the original paintings and bound poems were shown at the Pendleton Center for the Arts in Pendleton, Oregon." About the Artists: Alex Appella, originally from Oregon, began binding her books on a boat in Alaska, with the idea that original literature should be accessible, both for the writer and for the reader. After traveling half-way around the world with a mini-bookbinding workshop on her back (including a typewriter), and selling her artist?'s books on the streets and plazas of Latin America, Alex now creates them in her studio in Argentina, and offers them through internet. Alex?'s varied collection of artist?'s books can be found in public and private collections throughout the US, and beyond. Eve Slinker: ?"The arts have been a part of my life from the time I was a child until now, when I am a senior citizen. It wasn?'t until I missed yet another complicated run in a two-piano piece that I decided, definitively, that I would switch to the visual arts instead of music. Music travels through time and space and leaves nothing but a feeling behind. It can be glorious. With visual arts there is something tangible, good or bad, that leaves a feeling as well an object that can be touched and felt. I needed that concrete evidence. ?"When I went back to school, after raising my children and being a housewife, mother, companion, and ?"looker after,?" my thoughts were to be more sophisticated than I had been with the arts, and to expand my watercolor background to include oils, drawing materials, and water miscible media to further my endeavors. ?"My inner life has been foremost in my imaginings. Religion and politics are other persons?' subject matter. It?'s my family and myself that has been the subject of my paintings, whether the actual picture is of birds, trees, interiors, or the Snake River. Whether there has been guilt, sorrow or happiness expressed, color has a great deal to do with my feelings. ?"I used to wonder about painting things that represented other ideas. As I get older I wonder less. I look back at things I?'ve painted and recognize that they represented a period of my life. Not being a wordsmith, I put things into paintings, choosing the media according to what would express the feeling of the painting best ?- not that there were conscious decisions. Things just happened. Now, I believe that there are no accidents, the right people show up at the right time and we all have a higher power that/who has an influence on our lives. ?"It is up to us to trust and it is our honor to be creative.?"

Peter Koch, Printers: "Watermark is a series of lyrical meditations woven from the fabric of Venice in the late 20th century ... meditations on time & beauty ... a looking glass romance of a Russian poet-in-exile with a city that beguiles his eye. Brodsky dedicated Watermark to his friend the American painter, Robert Morgan who has lived in Venice for more than 30 years and the book is illustrated with 14 photo-gravures made from his original photographs." Peter Koch, "Printing in the Shadow of Aldus," Parenthesis: "This adventure began when my wife, Susan Filter, began pressing me to consider printing Watermark, a series of essays in memoir form, by the poet and Nobel laureate Joseph Brodsky. Watermark is a series of lyrical meditations woven from the fabric of late twentieth-century Venice, and a meditation on time and beauty and love - a looking glass romance of a Russian poet-in-exile with a city that beguiled his eye. "Venice - where it is said the mirror was perfected - is a city in which one contemplates beauty by merely opening one's eyes. . . . "Susan met Joseph in Venice in the mid-1980s while he was writing Watermark and she was studying paper conservation. She and Brodsky became great friends and remained so until his death in 1996. Susan and I met in 2001, and by 2005, she was determined to see a work from his hand fall under the imprint I had established to publish works of art and literature in hand-made editions. "Early on in our planning we invited Susan's friend Robert Morgan, a painter and longtime friend of Brodsky's, to illustrate the work with his photographs. (Brodsky dedicated Watermark to Morgan in 1986). The real challenge that confronted Susan was how to persuade me to print it in Venice. Admittedly, I was pre-disposed to the idea. I had already dedicated a considerable portion of my life to re-inventing the renaissance ideal of the scholar-artist-printer in a post-modern context. ...

Each book features an original Polaroid photograph of the Eldridge Street Synagogue or the surrounding neighborhood on the cover. Contents include a hand-typed introduction; 43 letters dictated during performances at the Eldridge Street Project in 2005; and, a flag-bound book featuring eleven Polaroid photos of Eldridge Street Synagogue and the surrounding neighborhood. Inside pockets are made out of pages from a Yiddish dictionary and a Chinese-language volume listing books permitted for publication by Communist censors, alluding to the mixed nature of this Lower East Side-Chinatown neighborhood. This book was made in conjunction with a series of interactive performances ?- Writing Home: Conversations with our Ancestors -- by Sheryl Oring at New York?'s Eldridge Street Project. It explores the connection between place, language, and memory, particularly in reference to the American immigrant experience. For this project, Oring set up a portable office at the Eldridge Street Synagogue - built in 1887 and now a non-profit cultural center - and invited participants to dictate letters to their ancestors. Using carbon paper and a vintage typewriter, Oring typed participants' response, gave the original to the interviewee, and kept a duplicate for her archive and this book. Oring continues to perform "Writing Home" at venues such as the International Center in New York City.

        O is for Opera

      San Diego:: Bay Park Press [False Bay Editions],, 2006.. Edition of 45. 9.4 x 6.75"; 90 pages. Accordion fold with pop outs and multiple other movables. Letterpress printed on Velata paper using Bernhard Modern type and images by photopolymer plates. Calligraphy design by Judythe Siecke. Set page drawings by Stephen Hendrickson. In wine-colored cloth-covered 7.25 x 10 x 2.75" box. The interior of the box is lined with paper in a Fortuny (Mariano Fortuny, 1871-1949, textile designer) design. The same fabric design becomes the accordion spine of the book so that it spreads like a stage curtain. Pick up your program (provided) and opera glasses (non-functional paper version provided) and begin an alphabetic romp through opera, from Aida to Die Zauberflote. Presentation surprises throughout: Aida comes with a 3-dimensional pyramid and the march of the elephants (plus a giraffe, lion and bear), Die Zauberflote [The Magic Flute] with an inventive volvelle. I is for Intermission at the Café Intermezzo where ?"the audience was abuzz about the soprano?'s voice?" and a collaged plate of pastries awaits. S is for Sets/Set Design. Open the doors and find yourself in a modified tunnel book back stage, peering through flats at the audience. The innovation and attention to detail never stop. Even the confetti at the post-show champagne party (which faces the colophon) was printed and tipped on. Bay Park Press: "O is for Opera was conceived in March, 2003 and printing began in April. We printed through several life crises (ours, our families, our interns), numerous teaching assignments, other letterpress projects, press breakdowns and new puppies, births and deaths. And so it probably goes with all long-term projects. But at times we wondered if we would ever make our end. But we kept on printing, and printing, some pages having at least 15 color runs through our trusty Vandercook I.... We estimate we cranked the press 19,853 times in this edition of 45. It is Spring 2006 and our opera odyssey is finally finished. We hope yours is just starting." 'O is for Opera' is the sixth letterpress artist book produced by Sybil Rubottom and Jim Machacek. A masterwork of invention.

        Full Circle

      Berkeley:: Flying Fish Press,, 2006.. Edition of 100. Rotating wheel in a 15" x 15" x 3" silk-covered box. Full Circle - like so many of Julie Chen's bookworks - offers the sensation of being caught up in something at once momentous and personal. Another elegantly clothed, unmistakable Chenbox opens to reveal a marvel of execution and effect. Once again, Julie Chen takes physicality, an essential part of all books, and makes it a vital element of expression. A spinning wheel - that the reader controls and rotates - suggests a clock, or progressive stations along some journey. The contents of the book are viewed by turning a wheel and pausing whenever text and image are centered in 4 windows. At 3 intervals a drawer lines up with the opening in the front of the box. Pulling a tab reveals a tongue-like 3-dimensional diagram of the mind and heart in relation to each other. The subject? The clue is on the face of the top of the box: an array of intersecting circles hold phrases like "Things I was told to believe in," "Things I would like to believe in," "Things I used to believe in." Full Circle is about belief, or more pointedly, about cycles of belief. As the wheel moves from stage 1 to stage 12 (12 stations?), the windows offer four different ways we can chart belief: a single word, objects, the image of a body part, a sentence. At station 1 are the single word INQUIRY, some tear-shaped egg-like objects, the image of a closed mouth, and the sentence "I look for you but you will not speak to me." At each stage the windows have new content. At each stop connections between the windows are left up to the reader. And, as the stages progress, so is the developing story. Full Circle demonstrates that the cycle of belief is the same for all, but different in the particulars. Over and over, Chen's works have a foundation of social connection. Early in her career, the connection was in collaboration with others; lately, her works have insisted on reader/viewer participation, directly as in Personal Paradigms or now indirectly as in Full Circle. Is it about how belief intersects with human relationships? Is it looking at religious belief? When queried, Julie Chen wrote, "the text if purposefully ambiguous about whether the main reference is religion or relationship. It's not exactly about either, but more about the daily cycles of belief that we go through all the time without even realizing it, but that make life bearable. Things such as believing that we will never get seriously ill or lose our jobs-can't happen to me, right? We don't actually have any control of these things, and have to rely on faith to not be swallowed up by anxiety all the time. The objects in the window aren't meant to have deep meaning in relationship to the text. Rather, they are like talismen, reminders or lucky charms - place markers for belief. I chose them because I liked the intuitive connections which are not easily explainable. I like the idea that viewers are searching for their own ideas of what the objects might mean." The experience of Full Circle is the practical gloss on the bleak view - I can't go on, I go on - Beckett presented to the world 50 years ago in Waiting for Godot. Full Circle acknowledges the presence of ambiguity in our lives, but, most wonderfully, demonstrates that ambiguity and delight can co-exist. Julie Chen's bookworks have always been lucid without being transparent, accessible without being simplistic. Her recent works, most pointedly True to Life and now Full Circle, offer evidence that memory is fluid and that getting though the day (and the night) calls for belief and the suspension of belief in an ongoing cycle.

        The János Book

      Icho Cruz, Argentina:: Transient Books,, 2006.. Edition of 50. 21.7 x 63.8 cm (approx. 8.5 x 25?"); 35 pages printed on one side. Includes 29 full color collages. Boards in black cloth with Japanese stab binding. Cut out on front board to reveal the face of one brother. Housed in a blackcloth clamshell box. Printed on 120 gram Bakri Avorio Paper using an Epson Inkjet printer and Epson Durabright Inks. Research, writing, design, printing, and binding by Alex Appella. It?'s difficult not to be hyperbolic about the scope and accomplishment of this work. Twelve years of research and development do not even begin to speak of its cost, or of its value. Because it involves self-knowledge, this book feels as painful and liberating as birth. Questions abound: Is the past ever past? How long are its tentacles? Despite what we think in America, is it possible to reinvent oneself? Full of drama both high and low, the story spans the 20th century. A 20-year-old Appella gets her Great Uncle János to open up about things that have not been talked about for decades. It begins ?- but we don?'t know this at the beginning ?- with a Jewish family and five siblings in pre-WWI Hungary. By the time Alex Appella, the granddaughter of one of those siblings, becomes a part of the saga 70 or so years later, the family has been challenged by circumstance, diminished by events beyond their control, and scattered by personal decision. Heritage denied; heritage embraced. Does it make a difference? My grandfather?'s brother ?- your brother ?- emigrated to Palestine? We are Jewish? What do you mean? What does that mean? What can it mean? Pontificate about the value of truth all you want to, The János Book reveals its cost. Appella?'s collage technique is well suited to capture this layered tale. The pages froth with art as well as information. "One has to cry for the disintegration of our family. One has to cry, because what happened to us, has happened to millions of families all over the world. Since my childhood, it's like a bomb exploded among us, and we were scattered apart. An eye in Cuba, a bone in Argentina, a hand in California, a foot in Connecticut, and still more in Israel and Canada and Switzerland, all over the world. Conversations like what you and I have, Alex, at one time were common among family members. I'm passing on what I know of our family, to add meat and flesh to the pieces that have been scattered all over the world. The unity of what we once were can still give us strength, and can remind us of what we need for strength in the present and in the future. "At some point, one must ask: what really leaves traces behind us? Nothing. What is painful today, or what was painful yesterday, or what is going to be painful tomorrow, in the end turns out to be nothing more than anecdotes. And then nothing. It is forgotten. Life is like water, it cleanses everything. Even the most painful. But the written word is not lost, ever. Memory, memory fades. The pain and the traces always disappear with time. The written word does not." — János Szenti

Now old and ailing, at last she wants to tell the truth about her extraordinary life. Her letter to biographer Margaret Lea - a woman with secrets of her own - is a summons. Vida's tale is one of gothic strangeness featuring the Angelfield family: the beautiful and wilful Isabelle and the feral twins Adeline and Emmeline. Margaret succumbs to the power of Vida's storytelling, but as a biographer she deals in fact not fiction and she doesn't trust Vida's account. As she begins her researches, two parallel stories unfold. Join Margaret as she begins her journey to the truth - hers, as well as Vida's. Limited Signed edition
