        The Idiot: The Penguin Books 60th Anniversary Artist Book

      London, England: Penguin/Penguin Designer Classics(2006). First Edition / First Printing. As New in As New Dust Jacket. 704 pages. Artist Book. One of the most beautiful Artist Book interpretations of the classic ever created. Limited Edition of one numbered and signed copy. Should not be confused with the Limited Edition of 1000 copies. A brilliant production by Ron Arad: Oversize-volume format. Text by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Art by Ron Arad. White cardboard box. Printed on archival acid-free stock paper in the United Kingdom to absolutely the highest standards. In transparent Plexiglas ("Perspex") box, which serves as the book's DJ. Rather than just an outer slipcase, it is completely integral to the book. Published on the occasion of Penguin Book's 60th Anniversary, "The Idiot" is one of five classics that the publisher issued in a Limited Edition by commissioning five of the world's most important artists in their respective fields. The other titles are Gustave Flaubert's "Madame Bovary", D. H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover", F. Scott Fitzgerald's "Tender Is The Night: A Romance", and Fyodor Dostoyevsky's "Crime And Punishment" (he is the only novelist to be honored with two masterpieces in the Series). Penguin held a global auction of the "Number 1" signed copy of each title on the day of its 60th Anniversary in 2006. "Arad's book has no cover so the reader will pick it up and read the author's first words. It is stripped back to show the glue and thread in the spine which is visible through an acrylic slipcase with a fresnel lens so the text appears to move as the lid is removed" (Publisher's blurb). "By not wanting to have a cover, it ended with the book becoming an amazing object that is alive, but which maintains its transparency. It becomes a glorious box with a book inside, almost like a monument" (Ron Arad). Said like a true architect who has worked for the Metropolitan Museum of Art New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou Paris, the Vitra Design Museum Germany, and the Victoria & Albert Museum London. The ultimate book-as-object, the literary classic-as-work-of-art, worthy of this auspicious celebration and posterity. An absolute "must-have" edition for Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Ron Arad, and art/graphic design collectors. This copy is Number 1, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the first page by Ron Arad. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. By special arrangement with Penguin, Arad signed only the first copy of the Limited Edition, an instant collectible. This is the only signed copy available anywhere and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare, one-of-a-kind signed copy thus. One of the greatest novels of all time, re-interpreted by one of the most brilliant architect/designers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PENGUIN DESIGNER CLASSIC TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0713999659.

        Tender Is The Night: The Penguin Books 60th Anniversary Artist Book

      London, England: Penguin/Penguin Designer Classics(2006). First Edition / First Printing. As New in As New Dust Jacket. 346 pages. Artist Book. One of the most beautiful Artist Book interpretations of the classic ever created. Limited Edition of one numbered and signed copy. Should not be confused with the Limited Edition of 1000 copies. A brilliant production by Sam Taylor-Wood: Oversize-volume format. Black silk cloth boards, as issued. Text by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Art by Sam Taylor-Wood. She utilizes one of her most austerely beautiful photographs on glassine paper that serves as the Artist Book's translucent inner DJ. White cardboard box. Printed on archival acid-free stock paper in the United Kingdom to the highest standards. In transparent Plexiglas ("Perspex") box, which serves as the book's outer DJ. Published on the occasion of Penguin Book's 60th Anniversary, "Tender Is The Night: A Romance" is one of five classics that the publisher issued in a Limited Edition by commissioning five of the world's most important artists in their respective fields. The other titles are Gustave Flaubert's "Madame Bovary", D. H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover", Fyodor Dostoyevsky's "Crime And Punishment" and "The Idiot" (he is the only novelist to be honored with two masterpieces in the Series). Penguin held a global auction of the "Number 1" signed copy of each title on the day of its 60th Anniversary in 2006. Sam Taylor-Wood shows "an elegant young man as he stands before us with his hands in his pocket and bare feet. He perfectly sums up the elegance and fragility of Nicole and Dick Driver's world" (Publisher's blurb). Sam Taylor-Wood is one of our finest living artist/photographers. She is especially noted for her portraits of ordinary subjects as well as the most well-known celebrities of the day. Many consider her to be the natural successor to Avedon and Annie Leibovitz, but that judgment, while flattering, does not do justice to the singular qualities of her work. The ultimate book-as-object, the literary classic-as-work-of-art, worthy of this auspicious celebration and posterity. An absolute "must-have" edition for F. Scott Fitzgerald and Sam Taylor-Wood collectors. This copy is Number 1, indicated as such on the Front Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Sam Taylor-Wood. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. By special arrangement with Penguin, Taylor-Wood signed only the first copy of the Limited Edition, an instant collectible. This is the only such signed copy available anywhere and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare, one-of-a-kind signed copy thus. One of the greatest novels of all time, re-interpreted by one of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy.

        Las Piernas De Crista ("crista's Legs")

      Buenos Aires, Argentina: Raul Eduardo Stolkiner Studios(2006). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 1 pages. Rare RES (Raul Eduardo Stolkiner) collectible print. Framed Original Color Print of "Las piernas de Crista" ("Crista's Legs"), signed by both RES and Constanza Piaggio. Print size is 8 X 10 inches. Full frame size is 14 X 18 inches. Professionally (and beautifully) framed on solid black wood and Plexiglas by Craig Cotsones/Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago. Eminently suitable for display. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in a collectible framed format, RES' "Las piernas de Crista"/"Crista's Legs". A brilliant re-imagination of the Crucifixion Scene as a photographic image: We see only the legs of Jesus Christ (rather than His whole body). It would NOT make sense if it was rendered as a painting (even though it obviously has painterly qualities, and alludes to the whole history of Christian iconography), but it makes perfect sense as a photograph that is deliberately cropped, thereby allowing the viewer to imagine and supply the rest of Christ's suffering body. Like many of the most ambitious and enormously talented artists of Latin America, RES is a natural-born aesthete who is also a committed social/political thinker. RES believes in political art. But he also believes that the conventional conception of political art in the Western/Latin-American tradition wrongly elevated politics at the expense of art when it should have been the other way around: Art is enhanced and enlarged by politics, but should not be overwhelmed much less replaced by it. "Crista's Legs" provocatively re-presents the Crucifixion as Woman (Crista instead of Cristo/Christ), and is a masterly example of the post-humanist universality that RES's photographic art ultimately represents. A revered cult figure in Argentina, RES is one of the most intelligent and imaginative living artist/photographers. His work can only be described as cerebral, without losing any of art's sensuous qualities. It will reward repeated and immersive viewings. Being exposed to, understanding, and appreciating his work is one of the life-changing experiences a lover of art photography will have. An absolute "must-have" print for RES collectors. This framed original color print of "Las piernas de Crista" ("Crista's Legs") is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen on verso by RES. It is also very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by his model and long-time RES collaborator, Constanza Piaggio. His muse, she appears in many of his iconic images. As far as we know, this is the only print available online, is professionally (and beautifully) framed on solid black wood and Plexiglas, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed print thus. 1 original color print. One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A flawless collectible print. (SEE ALSO OTHER RES TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

        Res: La Verdad Inutil ("the Useless Truth") : The Deluxe Edition

      Buenos Aires, Argentina: La Marca Editora(2006). First Edition / First Printing. As New in As New Dust Jacket. 208 pages. Retrospective collection of photographs, presented as an Artist Book. The most important and comprehensive book on the photographic art of RES. Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition of 100 Roman Numeral-numbered and signed copies. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, of which there are four, particularly the regular trade Hardcover and Softcover Editions. The Deluxe Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by RES: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and photo-tableaux by RES. Essays by various contributors. 8 X 10 inch original color print, "Las piernas de Crista" ("Crista's Legs"), encased in its own glassine sheet and laid into the book. The print is magnificent, not a "throwaway", as too many prints of Limited Editions are. Matching black cloth clamshell box. Printed on pristine-white, thick glossy stock paper in Buenos Aires to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents, in the ultimate Deluxe Edition collectible format, RES' "La Verdad Inutil". The photographic art of the artist known simply as RES (his real name is Raul Eduardo Stolkiner; RES being his initials that he prefers to go by as an artist). The book marks the very first time that RES's remarkable body of work is presented in its entirety in book form, nine sequences in all that are preceded by illuminating critical texts (the work that RES produced during his prolonged stay in Mexico was destroyed under mysterious circumstances, and prompted his permanent return to his native Argentina). Like many of the most ambitious and enormously talented artists of Latin America, RES is a natural-born aesthete who is also a committed social/political thinker. RES believes in political art. But he also believes that the conventional conception of political art in the Western/Latin-American tradition wrongly elevated politics at the expense of art when it should have been the other way around: Art is enhanced and enlarged by politics. Art is, by definition, autonomous, therefore "useless". The only way art can become "useful" is for the artist and audience to regard it as a model of thought. Thought is the beginning (and ongoing basis) of genuine action, including politics. A revered cult figure in Argentina, RES is one of the most intelligent and imaginative living artist/photographers. His work can only be described as cerebral, without losing any of art's sensuous qualities. It will reward repeated and immersive viewings. Being exposed to, understanding, and appreciating his work is one of the life-changing experiences a lover of art photography will have. An absolute "must-have" title for RES collectors. This is a copy of the Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition of 100 Roman Numeral-Numbered copies, indicated/numbered as such in black pen on the Front Limitation Page by RES. It is also very boldly and beautifully signed in the same black pen by the artist/photographer. Laid-in is an 8 X 10 inch original color print of "Las piernas de Crista" ("Crista's Legs"), also number-stamped in matching Roman Numerals and very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen on verso by RES. It is also very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by his model and long-time RES collaborator, Constanza Piaggio. His muse, she appears in many of his iconic images. "Crista's Legs" provocatively re-imagines the Crucifixion as Woman (Crista instead of Cristo/Christ), and is a masterly example of the post-humanist universality that RES's photographic art ultimately represents.

        On Collecting William Morris: A Memoir. Together with an original leaf from the 1895 Kelmscott edition of Child Christopher & Goldilind the Fair

      Kirkwood, MO: The Printery, 2006. Hard Cover. Fine. Hard Cover. Number vii of ix copies reserved for the author. Inscribed by Jack Walsdorf to Greg Campbell, who bound the book at his Campbell-Logan Bindery: "For Greg Campbell from the author, Jack Walsdorf, 11-04-06. Laid-in is a thank you note from Jack to Greg for the gift of another finely bound book. This beautiful work is a fitting homage to the great William Morris for his impact on the history of printing and the renaissance of the private press. It is a beautifully printed work that was a runner-up for the prestigious Carl Hertzog award for outstanding achievement in the book arts. The engaging text describes the collecting experiences of the late Jack Walsdorf, one of the most significant collectors of books by or about Morris in the past half century (Jack unfortunately died earlier this year). Walsdorf, in fact, formed not one but three major Morris collections over a period of more than thirty years, selling each and then setting out to build another of equal merit. This version of the book is bound in green quarter leather with gilt titling and with Morris inspired green and gilt floral paper boards. Set in Jenson and Italian Old Style types and printed on a handpress in six colors on Somerset Book, a mould made paper from England. The book has an original leaf from the Kelmscott Press's Child Christopher (pages 247-248) There are also tipped-in facsimile photos of Morris and of his study and five illustrations of items from Walsdorf's collection. Housed in a green silk cloth covered slip-case. In fine condition. 37 pages. MOR/092217.

        Lexikon Garne und Zwirne: Eigenschaften und Herstellung textiler Fäden. CD-ROM CD-ROM von Anton Schenek (Autor)

      Deutscher Fachverlag, 2006. Das „Lexikon Garne und Zwirne" füllt als Nachschlagewerk eine deutliche Lücke in der deutschsprachigen Textilliteratur. Erstmals wurde in Lexikonform alles Wissenswerte zum Thema Garne und Zwirne sowie zu den dazugehörenden Grundlagen, zu Spinnverfahren, Garnstrukturen und Eigenschaften der Garne zusammengetragen. Themenbereiche der Spinnfasergarne sind unter anderem Ring- und OE-Rotorgarne, Kompaktgarne und Vortex-Luftspinngarne, DREF- und Sirogarne. Effektgarne und elastische Fäden werden ebenso berücksichtigt wie Umwindgarne und Zwirne mit ihren Herstellungsverfahren. Technische Filamentgarne und Texturgarne sowie Teppichgarne und Nähgarne werden erläutert. "Alles Zeitlich hengt an eym Faden " lautet ein altdeutsches Sprichwort, das auf die Jahrtausende alte Bedeutung des Garns im täglichen Gebrauch des Menschen hinweist. Der überwiegende Teil textiler Flächengebilde wird aus Garnen hergestellt. Die Spinnverfahren bestimmen neben den eingesetzten Rohstoffen ganz wesentlich die Garneigenschaften und die Qualität der Endprodukte. Heute spielen neue Spinnverfahren wie das inzwischen etablierte OE-Rotorspinnen und neuerdings das Luftspinnverfahren eine wichtige Rolle. Insbesondere Filamentgarne, vor allem aus synthetischen Rohstoffen, die glatt und texturiert zunehmend im technischen Bereich und in der modischen und sportlichen Kleidung Verwendung finden, gewinnen an Marktbedeutung. In technischen Textilien, vom Airbag im Auto bis hin zum Geflecht aus Carbonfilamenten, das in Flugzeugteilen als Basis der Verbundwerkstoffe Verwendung findet, sind Spezialgarne im Einsatz. Zahlreiche Abbildungen und Tabellen sowie die Grundlagen textiler Begriffe wie Feinheitsdefinitionen und andere wichtige technische Angaben ergänzen das Werk, das sowohl für die Beschäftigten im Textilhandel und der Modebranche, in Design und Produktion, als auch für Fachleute der Textil- und Bekleidungsindustrie sowie für Hersteller im Bereich Technischer Textilien und des Textilmaschinenbaus ein willkommener Helfer im Alltag sein wird.Leserzielgruppe: Textilingenieure, Textildesigner und Studenten dieser Bereiche, Stoffhändler und Warenprüfer, Spezialinstitute für Naturfasern

        EXPRESSed Ten Philatelic Fictions

      Vancouver, British Columbia:: Heavenly Monkey ,, 2006.. Edition of 35 . 3.5 x 5.625"; 28 pages. The text was set in Gill Sans and Bembo, and printed with the handpress on Rives Lightweight. Due to the limited number of her earliest stamps still available, the edition consists of just 35 copies, signed by Hodgson. Of the edition there are 30 in a standard case binding and slipcase. The remaining five each include two pieces of original art used to create one of the stamps. These samples are sewn into the binding, and accompanied by a brief handwritten description of the pieces by Hodgson. The copies are extra bound in full leather by Claudia Cohen. This is one of the deluxe copies. Heavenly Monkey: "Over the past decade, Barbara Hodgson has established a reputation as an author of both fiction and non-fiction books whose narratives are embroidered by her own inventive typography, collages and original art. But known only to her personal correspondents are the postage stamps she has produced as well, often in conjunction with the publication of a new book. With just enough of the earliest stamps still available to make up 35 complete sets, HM was pleased to be publishing a book collecting all 10 of Hodgson's stamps issued to date." From the author's introduction to EXPRESSed: "Getting mail delivered for free may have been the original purpose of faking stamps, but stamp artists are not out to deprive the post office of revenue. Their purpose is to carry the deceit far enough to earn a cancellation while dispatching their images around the world." The book features the stamps tipped to verso pages, with each facing recto presenting a brief commentary by Hodgson. In addition, Hodgson has created ten appropriate (and equally bogus) postmarks with which the stamps will be (roughly) cancelled.

        One Hundred Years of Solitude.

      London: The Folio Society, 2006. First edition of the Folio Society edition of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's magnum opus. Octavo, original green cloth, pictorial endpapers. Signed by Gabriel Garcia Marquez on the title page. Additionally signed by the translator, Gregory Rabassa on the title page, who has transcribed the line from this novel as follows, "There is always something left to love. Gregory Rabassa." Fine in a fine slipcase. Illustrated by Neil Packer. Since it was first published, One Hundred Years of Solitude has been translated into 37 languages and has sold more than 30 million copies. "It chronicles the life of Macondo, a fictional town based in part of Garcia Marquez's hometown of Aracataca, Colombia, and seven generations of the founding family, the Buendias. He creates a complex world with characters and events that display the full range of human experience. For the reader, the pleasure of the novel derives from its fast-paced narrative, humor, vivid characters, and fantasy elements. In this 'magic realism', the author combines imaginative flights of fancy with social realism to give us images of levitating priests, flying carpets, a four-year-long rainstorm, and a young woman ascending to heaven while folding sheets" (NYPL Books of the Century 31).
