      Ostfildern-ruit, Germany: Hatje Cantz Publishers, 2006. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/As New Dust Jacket.. Ostfildern-ruit, Germany: Hatje Cantz Publishers, 2006. Hardcover. As New/As New. First Edition/First Printing. 160 pages. Exhibition monograph presented as an Artist Book. One of the most beautiful books on the art of Christian Boltanski. The title comes from his site-specific installation, "Zeit", which serves as the exhibition&#39;s starting point. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Christian Boltanski: Oversize-volume format. Blue hard boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Art by Christian Boltanski. Essays by Aleida Assmann and Ralf Beil. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Germany to the very highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the Institut Mathildenhohe Darmstadt from November 12, 2006 through February 11, 2007. Presents new work as well as previous work in a new light. The emphasis Boltanski places on the most fragile objects, particularly photographs, to evoke our "struggle against death" (his phrase) is the central idea behind his sublime art. As such, Boltanski&#39;s work is not "about" death but "against" it, through art rather than polemics. His obsession with death is often mistakenly seen as acceptance or even embrace of it when as Boltanski himself repeatedly says, the role of memory is to insist on the sanctity of human life, that whenever we remember those who have died, we remember their lives, not their death, and that memorial, archive, and elegy, which all pause Time, ultimately affirm Life. At the same time, Boltanski acknowledges, more than any other living artist, that death is a fact of life, and that even as we struggle against it, we intuitively realize from a series of "death experiences" throughout our lives (the end of childhood, which Boltanski regards as the first death we experience in life; the loss, not necessarily the actual death, of a loved one, which is why we call it "the end" of a romance, relationship or marriage; a life-threatening illness; severe physical or psychological violence inflicted upon us) that denying the reality of death is more dangerous than our fear of it. "I am for an art that is sentimental. I want to make people cry. Art should create emotions. The task is to create a formal work that is, at the same time, recognized by the spectator as a sentimentally charged object. Everyone will recognize their own history, their own world, which is more felt than perceived. The artist is someone who holds a mirror and those who look in the mirror recognize themselves but each one sees a different image" (Christian Boltanski). A "must-have" title for Christian Boltanski collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Christian Boltanski. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only signed copy of the First Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> One of the greatest living artists. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER CHRISTIAN BOLTANSKI TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 3775718257.

        Hand Over Hand

      [New York. 2006]. One of 15 copies, all on Arches and Hosokawa Ohban papers, each hand numbered and signed by the author / artist / printer, Sarah Plimpton, in pencil on colophon page. Page size: 7 inches x 10 inches; 30pp. Bound by Claudia Cohen: wrappers of gray handmade paper, sewing exposed on spine of red linen thread, also visible in the gutters of text pages, label printed on red Japanese paper with author's name and title, fine. Containing 8 original woodcuts, 7 of which are in black; the 8th is in red. Printed letterpress in Dante by Brad Ewing at The Grenfell Press in New York, this prose poem explores a man-woman relationship always against a background of great natural beauty. The words themselves take on the organic feel one associates with nature writing. Throughout the book, the artist / author juxtaposes sharp images, angular and geometric, that intrigue and refer back to the letters on the printed page - making the soft, intimate words seem all the more piercing.

        Society's Corset. Hints to a Fashionable Lady

      New York. 2006. One-of-a-kind artist's book, antique salesman sample girdle with net trim, satin ribbon and vintage corset lace; machine stitched, cotton embroidered text, inside corset lined with jacquard flowered patterned corseting material. Size: 7-1/2 H x 6-1/2 W x 13L inches; page size: 5 x 3-1/4 inches; 20 page book (10 sheer pages, 10 silk satin pages), including covers. Bound: grommet binding tied with vintage dyed baby shoelace; housed in custom-made plum cloth clamshell box with title and author and date machine stitched in plum on flesh-colored label set into front cover, fine. The project was built around a vintage Salesman's Pamphlet for Binner Corsets. Illustrated with images taken from the Binner Corsets Salesman's Pamphlet in the form of digital ink jet prints on 19mm satin and 10mm silk chiffon Color Plus Fabrics, machine and hand-stitched pages. The advertising text from the Binner Salesman's Pamphlet is interspersed with quotations from women writers, selected by the artist, to juxtapose the demeaning and objectifying text of the corset manufacturer. For example, "{Any woman can step up the attractive magnetism of her figure, with one of these new, really glamourizing foundations.}" is juxtaposed with a 1974 quotation from feminist writer, Simone de Beauvoir, "By means of [dress] the woman who is deprived of doing anything feels that she express what she is." Once again, Ms. Stone has taken aim at the hypocrisy of the beauty industry and the emphasis on youth and beauty that is pervasive in our culture with a witty and sophisticated look at past cultural trends exemplified by material culture remains. A stunning book. See an Image.
