        Red Thread Two Women. Images & Design by Charles Hobson.

      Pacific Editions, San Francisco, CA 2006 - One of 38 copies, all on BFK Rives and Strathmore papers incorporating hand-colored cotton and jute twine, each signed and numbered by the two poets and artist / designer, Charles Hobson, who assembled the edition with the assistance of Alice Shaw. Page size: 7-1/2 x 8 inches; 48pp. Bound: two signatures sewn in an accordion structure, fabric and paper over boards, red printed label on spine; housed in fabric-covered slipcase with red jute twine ties. The design of the book incorporates twine which actually weaves through the text. Inspired by the poem and evoking the experience explored in the text, the string / thread acts like a drawn line and can be moved around by the reader to change the "drawing" and the experience. The reverse folds of the book contain images of beets to accentuate characteristics of the poem. The string-like roots and the fullness and ripeness of the vegetable shapes recall and emphasize the individual words from the poem that the artist has chosen to reprint with the images: voice, awaken, heart, distance, breath, birth. The poets, Paula Sager and Lizbeth Hamlin, are practioners and teachers of Authentic Movement, a practice that is concerned with the exploration of relationship. In its simplest form there is a mover and a witness. The mover, with eyes closed, waits for an impulse to move. The witness follows or tracks his or her own experience while being present and attentive to the mover. Their poem is rhythmic and flowing, an exploration of insight, discovery and personal revelation which is aimed at showing how we as human beings long to relate.Charles Hobson created the images and reproduced them in hand-colored high resolution digital prints. The text was set by Mr. Hobson in Cantoria MT Light following the authors' original spacing and printed offset. Each page is a visual delight with the text weaving, swooping and dipping around the red cotton and jute twine, sometimes under the threads with the ensuing shadows, but always carrying forward the theme of connectedness. The reader is propelled forward, following the motion of the words with the implicit motion of the "thread" of the book. Once again, Charles Hobson has taken text and conceived of, and created, a structure that embodies that text. The reader / viewer is the richer for it. We are presented with a concept, and it is explored in the text and then again in the book's structure. And the beets / beats . ! They are the organic imagery that not only move the eye forward but hold the eye with pleasure for at least a beat or two. One could dance to this book, and I suspect that was the intent of authors and artist. See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Ajax zum Beispiel. Grafik / Malerei Klaus Zylla. Begleitwort Egon Günther.

      - Berlin, Edition Galerie auf Zeit, 2006. 65,6 : 52,3 cm. 24 unn. S. Büttenkarton. Orig.-Halbleinen mit Siebdruck in Schwarz u. Rot auf Gold. Eines von 60 nummerierten Exemplaren. - Monumentales Künstlerbuch Zyllas, das 10 blattgrosse farbige Arbeiten enthält, die sich in 4 Originale, 4 übermalte Siebdrucke u. 2 Siebdrucke unterteilen. Druckvermerk von Klaus Zylla und Begleitwort von Egon Günther in Bleistift signiert. Künstlerische Gesamtgestaltung in Schrift und Bild von Klaus Zylla. - "Müllers gross angelegtes, gleichnishaftes Gedicht 'Ajax zum Beispiel' ist einer der wichtigsten Texte seiner späten Schaffensphase. Anhand der Figur des Ajax beschreibt der Dichter den Niedergang der alten Epoche und die Konfrontation mit der neuen Zeit. Ajax ist dabei tragisch angelegt. Er verkörpert das Nicht-Korrumpierbare; insofern ist er auch eine Hoffnungsgestalt. Aus diesem Widerspruch heraus hat sich Klaus Zylla zu einem konzeptionellen Künstlerbuch inspirieren lassen, mit Serigrafien und freier Malerei. Jedes Buch ist ein Unikat. Der Film-Regisseur Egon Günther hat ein die Wirren dieser, unserer Zeit aufnehmendes Begleitwort geschrieben." [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        12 O'Clock News

      [Octon, France]: Verdigris Press. [2006]. One of 10 copies from a total edition of 50, all on Hahnemuhle paper, signed by the artist, Judith Rothchild and the printer / binder, Mark Lintott; this is one of 10 deluxe copies with an original copper plate and additional mezzotint, 40 regular copies also were made. In addition 20 suites of prints from the original copper plates were printed. Page size: 11-1/2 inches x 16-7/8 inches. Bound by Mark Lintott: original gray-green paper over boards, paper has been silk-screened with yellow moon and title printed in khaki green with exposed sewing in ivory linen thread, blood red cloth hinges, red paper spine with title printed in black with author and artist&#39;s name, blood red endpapers, housed in publisher&#39;s matching clamshell box, fine. Illustrated by Judith Rothchild and designed by Judith Rothchild and Mark Lintott, including three original mezzotints, pulled from three copper plates, two full page and the other copper plate cut into eight sections and each of the eight plates separately re-printed and inserted in the text corresponding to the indications given by the author. The text is set in Vendome Romain and was printed on an 1867 Albion press by Mark Lintott, who also made the bindings, slipcases and boxes. & The date of publication, according to the artist and printer, was February 5, 2006, which was the third anniversary of Colin Powell&#39;s speech to the UN Security Council. Parts of that speech are printed in black on the blood red recto of the rear free endpaper. 12 O&#39;CLOCK NEWS was originally published in GEOGRAPHY III in 1976. Elizabeth Bishop&#39;s prose poem, certainly surreal in outlook, with a great sense of irony as well as parody, takes a look at the author&#39;s desk top, but isolating images and viewing them as minutia. The results, as detailed in Bishop&#39;s "new report," could not be any more wrong. The parallel with the American Secretary of State&#39;s speech at the U.N. is devastatingly obvious. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/9825.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        Schönheit aus dem Feuer: Fliesenkunst aus acht Jahrhunderten von Wolfgang E. Weick und Gabriele Koller

      Deutscher Kunstverlag, 2006. 2006. Softcover. Good. 26,6 x 21 x 1,2 cm. Der Katalog enthält den Bestand an Fliesen, den das Museum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte Dortmund Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts von dem Schweizer Archäologen und Kunstwissenschaftler Robert Forrer erwarb und bietet damit einen Ãœberblick über die Geschichte der europäischen Fliesenkunst.Forrer hatte in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts begonnen, Fliesen zu erwerben und zu erforschen. 1901 erschien seine Publikation »Geschichte der europäischen Fliesenkeramik vom Mittelalter bis zum Jahre 1900«, ein lange Zeit gültiges Werk, dessen Grundlage Forrers eigene umfangreiche Fliesensammlung bildete. Die 1903 nahezu komplett erworbene Fliesensammlung Forrers bildet heute den Kern eines großen Sammlungsbestands an historischen Fliesen im Museum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte Dortmund. Beginnend mit Fliesen aus dem 12. Jahrhundert, die zu den frühesten Beispielen der europäischen Fliesenkeramik überhaupt gehören, gibt die Sammlung einen Einblick in acht Jahrhunderte europäische Fliesenkunst bis hin zu den Anfängen des Jugendstils. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf Fliesen des Mittelalters und der Renaissance. Höhepunkte der Sammlung bilden frühe Relieffliesen des Rheinlandes, inkrustierte Fliesen des französischen Mittelalters, spanisch-maurische Fliesen sowie farbenprächtige Fayencefliesen der Renaissance aus Italien und Frankreich. Den Siegeszug der weiß-blauen niederländischen Fliese bis ins 19. Jahrhundert hinein spiegeln zahlreiche Fliesenbeispiele aus verschiedenen europäischen Länder wider. Der vorliegende Katalog enthält einen einführenden Textteil und mit 350 Objekten den Gesamtbestand in Einzelbeschreibungen und Abbildungen.

        Seven Secrets.

      Vincent FitzGerald & Company, New York 2006 - One of 10 copies only, on J.B. Green paper, each signed and numbered in pencil on the colophon by the artist, Susan Weil. Page size: irregular but about 7 inches x 9 inches; 7 individual collages each hand water colored, cut out, and assembled by the artist, Susan Weil, and the publisher, Vincent FitzGerald. On the reverse of each individual work of art is a "secret" hand written by the artist. Because they are secrets, the reader / viewer can see words but there is no way to read the secret. Bound: loose in translucent plexi-glass box with sliding cover, printed colophon in black with title in red visible through side of box, new. The images created by Weil are so full of life - one is instantly drawn into the full world of this talented artist who has always included others in her life - children, partners, pets - all lovingly viewed through her aesthetic. The colors are vivid blues, bright yellows, gold and silver and the reader / viewer engages with them - knowing they will be unknowable and all the more intriguing. See an Image.

        Magie Blanche

      Verdigris 2006 - Rothchild, Judith. Hardcover. 20 of 30 copies. Copies 26 to 29 were hors commerce, and number 30 was given to the Bibliotheque Nationale de France. SIGNED BY ARTIST AND WRITER. This beautiful work has eleven stunning numbered and initialed mezzotints by artist Judith Rothchild. Rothchild is an American born artist who lives in the Languedoc region of France. Also a pastel artist, she has become famous for her mezzotints, perhaps the most difficult printmaking technique. Rouanet is a well known French writer. The colophon says that the work is a collaboration between the two, who share a deep love for the Languedoc. Rouanet's text, in French, was inspired by Rothchild's prints of food and wine and by the spirit of a local restaurant, Le Mimosa. The folio sized pages are loose in a yellow and green box made by Lisa Knoblauch with the front board decorated with mimosa leaves done by serigraph. Printed by Mark Lintott in Vendome Romain type on an Albion press. The prints are protected by tissue guards. 20 pages including the prints. PRI/061207. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        ROBERT FRANK: COME AGAIN - Rare Signed Copy of The First Edition/First Printing - ONLY SIGNED COPY ONLINE

      Gottingen, Germany: Gerhard Steidl Druckerei Und Verlag, 2006 - 1st Printing. Signed. 48 pages. Published in 2006. Collection of photographs presented as an Artist Book. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a softcover original only. The First Edition is now very scarce. An austerely elegant production by Robert Frank and Gerhard Steidl: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers with photographic reproduction in front and titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Robert Frank. There is no text. Printed in quadrotone on thick coated stock paper using four-color matte inks and Polaroid spot varnish in Gottingen, Germany to absolutely the highest standards. In matching wraparound pictorial DJ slipcase that is open on both ends, as issued. Presents and reproduces Robert Frank's Polaroid work, as assembled by the photographer in a notebook-style Artist Book (the original notebook remains in Frank's possession). Steidl deserves credit for ensuring that this Facsimile Edition retains as much as possible the subtle visual and tactile beauties of the original. "In November, 1991, Robert Frank went to Beirut on a commission to photograph the city's devastated downtown in the aftermath of the Lebanese Civil War (1975-1990). He also made Polaroids of the city and its environs which, on his return home, he stowed away in his studio. It was only many years later that he considered those images again, and used them to create a sketchbook's worth of Polaroid collages. A facsimile of his notebook, 'Come Again', shows how Robert Frank has worked almost exclusively with Polaroids in recent years, exploring the collage and assemblage possibilities of the instant photograph" (Gerhard Steidl). Once again, Robert Frank's images of a devastated land capture in a rigorous documentary format a universal human tragedy as well as his own personal turmoil and pain. "He can portray real pain and capture profound depths of human emotion better than almost any other photographer; indeed, better than almost any other artist in any medium" (Martin Parr and Gerry Badger). An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Frank collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Robert Frank. The photographer is notoriously averse to any kind of signing, but he made a very rare public appearance in New York City in conjunction with the book's publication. He signed copies for some people who waited patiently in line then abruptly and inexplicably left before he could sign the rest. This title is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only signed copy available online, is still in the publisher's original plastic wrappers, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Signed Robert Franks are rare, command as much as $20, 000 online even if they are not in fine condition, and will always keep their value. A rare signed copy thus. 24 quadrotone plates. Three of Robert Frank's books were selected as among the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest living photographers. A flawless collectible copy.

"The clarity and compassion of [Saramago's] vision make Seeing worthy of its name" (The Washington Post). "Saramago for the last 25 years stood his own with any novelist of the Western world.

His genius was remarkably versatile &#151; he was at once a great comic and a writer of shocking earnestness and grim poignancy. It is hard to believe he will not survive" (Harold Bloom).

'k?im?v??t? k?'spar?f]) (born as Garry Kimovich Weinstein on April 13, 1963, in Baku, Azerbaijan SSR, Soviet Union; now Azerbaijan) is a Soviet/Russian former World Chess Champion, regarded by many as the greatest chess player of all time. He is also a writer and political activist. Kasparov became the youngest ever undisputed World Chess Champion in 1985. He held the official FIDE world title until 1993, when a dispute with FIDE led him to set up a rival organization, the Professional Chess Association. He continued to hold the "Classical" World Chess Championship until his defeat by Vladimir Kramnik in 2000. He is also widely known for being the first world chess champion to lose a match to a computer, when he lost to Deep Blue in 1997. Kasparov's ratings achievements include being rated world #1 according to Elo rating almost continuously from 1986 until his retirement in 2005 and holding the all-time highest rating of 2851. He also holds records for consecutive tournament victories and Chess Oscars. Since 1984 Kasparov was member of Central Committee of Komsomol and CPSU member. Kasparov announced his retirement from professional chess on March 10, 2005, to devote his time to politics and writing. He formed the United Civil Front movement, and joined as a member of The Other Russia, a coalition opposing the administration of Vladimir Putin. He was a candidate for the 2008 Russian presidential race, but later withdrew. Widely regarded in the West as a symbol of opposition to Putin, Kasparov's support in Russia is low.
