        Other Lives

      Leonia, New Jersey:: Lois Morrison,, 2007.. Edition of 25. 5.75 x 8.75"; 16 pages. Double-sided accordion. Printed with a Gocco printer on Bristol board, plastic, and marbleized paper. Corrected with pigma micron pens. Typeface is Garamond Italics. Bound with marbleized printed paper over board. Vintage ribbons hold the book together. Hand-cut and assembled. Lois Morrison: “The drawings of insects and garments are interpretations of a variety of photographs from multiple sources altered to fit the spaces. The backgrounds are imaginary landscapes. The insects take the place of fashion garments dominating the page, while the garments are barely visible, reversing the usual order in which fashion dominates the picture. There are only seven backgrounds for the pages because they are upside-downies. Reversing each makes it look different, giving me 14. This is most obvious in the colophon page.”Granted, the world is too much with us, but how much of it do we notice? Morrison directs our attention to the insect world, part of our world, but to most invisible.Text: "When we see clothing show in natural settings, do we ever think, or are we even aware of the myriads of insects that share that setting? ...

        She'd had no premonition

      Chicago, Illinois:: Theodora Press,, 2007.. Edition of 6. 13 x 11"; 2 pages. Half bound with streaked red bookcloth. Intaglio-printed title and illustration inset in top board. Book opens just past 90?, allowing inventive pop-up and rich intaglio images to present a dreamscape in diorama form. Intaglio prints are zinc plates that underwent several layers of tonal aquatints after the initial line work was etched in. Text in script which Pankratz wrote into her original drawing (and which, when transferred to be etched into the zinc plate, had to be reproduced backwards in order to print in the right order to be read; this ends up being a process of drawing the letters as individual line relationships rather than writing the words.). Teresa Pankratz: "She'd had no premonitions… is part of a new body of work with an in-progress title of The Dream House Collection. These pieces revolve around the fictionalized autobiographical tale (the house Pankratz grew up in did burn down in 2005) of the transformations that take place in the lives of three grown siblings when the house they grew up in burns to the ground. Other titles in the collection will be available as they are produced."“She’d had no premonition…” was conceived after receiving the news that my childhood home had burnt to the ground. Etched into the cloud of smoke billowing from the small town’s aerial map, these dream texts chronicle my nocturnal visits to the site. Unable to physically return home for several weeks, it seems that, as the text etched into the foreground relates: “To this house, she could travel in her sleep.”

        Seven Rooms

      Sydney, Australia:: Ant Press / Masterthief,, 2007.. Edition of 17. 8.75 x 9.25 x 1"; 132 pages. Photomontages printed offset. Printed on a flatbed proofing press by Bernie Rackham at Redwood Prints in Centaur on Mohawk Superfine Ultrawhite eggshell 104 gsm. Felix Oppen at Wide Open Media and Chris Boone at Splitting Image contributed to typesetting and pre-press works. Casebound by Monica Oppen and Daphne Lera at D.S. Murray Bookbinders. Quarter leather with decorated papers over boards. Exposed sewn bands. Housed in black clamshell box lined with photomontages. Signed and numbered by Oppen and Lyssiotis. Monica Oppen: "Seven Rooms is a narrative poem in seven parts. The text had its beginning in the deep subconscious. The rhythm, form, and length of the work was given by an intuitive flow rather than formed to fit any preconceived format or genre. "The narrative occurs because time passes. The place it occurs in is not a real place but of the subconscious mind, which does not need the logic, three dimensional solidity, and consistency of the real world. Initially I saw this place as a house from which the title comes. "The subject of the work is change and transformation; personal and social transformation. The possibility muted is that when the individual changes society can change. The individual, the girl in this narrative, is essentially reduced to nothing but there is no death only a clearing for another beginning." Bibliotheca Librorum apud Artificem: "Seven Rooms is a report brought back from the interior. The travels document surreal spaces and deep transformations which hit at the possibilities of change on a personal and a social level." Peter Lyssiotis is a photographer/photomonteur, filmmaker, writer, and book artist who has worked in the field of book arts for over 25 years. In 2005 he was a recipient of the State Library of Victoria Fellowship. Monica Oppen works in the book arts, writing, printmaking and bookbinding.

        43, According to Robin Price, with Annotated Bibliography

      Middletown, Connecticut:: Robin Price, Printer & Publisher,, 2007.. Edition of 86. 11.75 x 8 x 1.5" closed; extends to 20 feet. Typefaces: ATF Garamond and Kabel. Six colors. Printed letterpress. Bibliography laser-printed. Housed in an olive green cloth-covered clamshell box, with a river section printed in blue, and map-paper spine label. Robin Press, prospectus: "Constructing a book around the number 43 came to me during an Anthony Braxton solo saxophone jazz concert, on the eve of my forty-third birthday. The number evolved into my lens for obtaining text excerpts from 86 books significant to me as a book artist. Simple formulas, using modular arithmetic with the number 43, were applied to categories such as page number, paragraph, sentence, line of poetry, etc. "The text is grouped by subject matter into sixteen page spreads. Titles of spreads include 'Water,' 'Counting,' and 'Flora.' Each is considered as something equivalent to an encyclopedia slice, in a manner directly inspired by the fifty-volume Zweite Enzyklöpadie von Tlön, by Ines v. Ketelhodt and Peter Malutzki. Visually flowing through the accordion-bound text sheets is a river image, borrowed from the Ninja Press book The Real World of Manuel Córdova. "Paper maps, gathered from locations around the world that run along the 43rd parallels, form the background accordion that structurally supports the main text accordion, made of semi-translucent graph paper. Excerpts are identified by book title, printed in the margins, with a symbol that indicates the counting method used to retrieve it. A key for the symbols is printed on the Legend Card, found in a library-style pocket on the front cover of the book. A supplemental 32 page Annotated Bibliography, housed in a facing pocket within the case, provides personalized information on all titles. The pockets and the booklet cover are made of paper maps, mostly USGS topographic maps, and vary throughout the edition. "The book is in an edition of 86, because forty-three copies seemed too few.

Text letterpress printed in Baskerville font on Arches cover paper. Bound in bookcloth with titles in gilt on front cover. Housed in matching black bookcloth covered clamshell box with title on cover. Signed and numbered by the artist. Seiko Tachibana: "Each of our actions must have a meaning, therefore each of my lines and dots have reasons why they are created just so. All of our instincts are encoded in our DNA at the time we are conceived; our inheritance and our legacy, through the generations, continuing forever. All possibilities for human experience and survival are contained within the memory of our genetic material. I am interested in finding and exploring this memory by searching within myself and letting my discoveries manifest themselves in my work. My marks often employ circles and bars as metaphors for rain and water. Rain is about hope. It gives life to all creatures on Earth. It is an essential element in the cycle of life. The circle represents the natural duality of the infinite whole, and suggests the constant balancing forces of Yin and Yang. "In living our daily lives, we are confronted with an almost incomprehensible deluge of images, and our understanding of the world around us ?- our reality ?- is largely dependent upon which of these images we choose to inform us and which we reject. We are, therefore, simultaneously enlightened and deceived about the true nature of our universe. "The accumulation of every day life becomes history. History is the trace of time. All of my actions immediately become the past. I draw marks, and the marks become history right after I draw them. The marks are a trace of time: They are evidence of my existence.

      Westminster Station, Vermont:: Bridge Press,, 2007.. Edition of 18. 11 x 14.25 x 1"; 23 leaves. Etchings created by the artist. Printed on handmade feather deckle paper from Papéterie St. Armand in Montréal, Canada. Printed with the assistance of Eve McNeill and Erika Reed at Bridge Press. Titles of the cards handwritten by Tamara Stoneburner of Gracestone Calligraphics. Enclosed in a soft fabric wrapper created by Sara Creighton of Easthampton, Massachusetts. Housed in a black paper portfolio with tie closure. Brian Cohen: "Fool?'s Journey is a book of twenty-three etchings based on the major arcana of the traditional tarot deck. Loosely based on Renaissance cosmography, the book is a visual representation of a philosophical world-view, each card presenting a universal archetype of human experience and a parallel, symbolic element or quality of the physical world. ... "The tarot originated in the Renaissance as a form of cosmography, a visual illustration of a philosophical world-view. Each card presents an archetype of human experience illuminated through a parallel, symbolic element or quality of the physical world. The progression of cards in sequence represents a journey of discovery, awareness, and insight, from the ignorance and blindness of the Fool (number 0) to the spiritual illumination of the World (number 21). The composition of each etching is based on a varied geometric framework derived from study of the history of art and sacred geometry."

        Employer Branding: Ein markenpolitischer Ansatz zur Schaffung von Präferenzen bei der Arbeitgeberwahl von Mladen Petkovic

      Hampp, R, 2007. 2007. Softcover. Good. 20,8 x 14,8 x 2 cm. Die sich abzeichnenden demografischen Veränderungen zum einen, sowie der langfristig hohe Bedarf an besonders qualifizierten akademischen Fach- und Führungsnachwuchskräften zum anderen führen zwangsläufig zu einem verschärften Wettbewerb zwischen den arbeitsplatzanbietenden Unternehmen um den kritischen Erfolgsfaktor des qualifizierten Mitarbeiters. Zur Profilierung eines Unternehmens als attraktiven Arbeitgeber mit dem Ergebnis eindeutiger Arbeitgeberpräferenzen bei den umworbenen akademischen Zielgruppen wird in dieser Arbeit das Konzept des Employer Branding entwickelt. Aufbauend auf einer detaillierten Betrachtung des Forschungsstands zum Entscheidungsverhalten von akademischen Nachwuchskräften sowie der kritischen markenansatzorientieren Prüfung zur grundsätzlichen Anwendbarkeit des Markenkonzepts auf Arbeitgeber werden aus der Diskussion verschiedener wissenschaftlicher Ansätze wie der Verhaltenswissenschaften und der Informationsökonomie Implikationen für die Gestaltung des Zielsystems sowie des Managements einer Arbeitgebermarke abgeleitet. Das Ergebnis bilden ein qualitatives Modell der Markenstärke mit ihren Erfolgsdimensionen sowie ein wissenschaftlich fundierter Prozess zum Aufbau und zur Führung eines Employer Brand. Im Sinne der anwendungsorientierten Ausrichtung dieser Forschungsarbeit werden die Phasen und Instrumente des Employer Branding sowie deren zeitpunktabhängige Wirkung und Intensität in einem Bezugsrahmen dargestellt, um eine hohe Effektivität im Aufbau der Arbeitgebermarke zu gewährleisten. Nach dem Studium der Wirtschaftswissenschaften an der Universität Paderborn und Nottingham stieg Mladen Petkovic, geb. 1976, als Doktorand bei der Robert Bosch GmbH ein. In seiner mehrjährigen Tätigkeit am Standort Bamberg leitete er ein Referat der Personalabteilung und ist aktuell verantwortlich für die Entgelt- und Arbeitszeitgestaltung.

        Trees

      St. Paul, Minnesota:: Julie Baugnet,, 2007.. One-of-a-Kind. 11 x 5.25" closed, 66 x 5.25" opened; 6 pages. Oblong accordion structure. Oil paint on Rives BFK paper. With a 000 paintbrush Baugnet handpainted Costaglioli's English and French poems. Housed in a paper wrapper (paper by Cave Paper). A mysterious production, haunting or maddening depending on one's outlook: essentially a painted book by Julie Baugnet with poems, one in English and one in French, by Philippe Costaglioli (who also has a degree in the Philosophy of Translation). The English poem is longer and presented first and may therefore be presumed to be the original. The French poem that follows deals with the same subject matter but if a translation is a creative translation, being abbreviated, omitting the middle of the English version. That the text comes first, even though it is painted and not printed, might suggest that it was the germinating idea for the entire production. But Baugnet's painted pages soon take command, as if in the beginning was the word, but the word takes form, or at least color, texture, tone. And the Trees of the title? There are only suggestion. In Baugnet's words: "You?'re right, no trees, only a long branch for the graphic. The ideas of 'fugitives' being the metaphor for the trees." "Fugitives in the field two or three little gangs ready for anything, far away from nothing ..." Julie Baugnet: "Philippe and I have known each other for several years and discovered that we both kept journals. We are both professors at St. Cloud State University. Philippe teaches Film Studies; I teach Graphic Design. We met one day during coffee and I discovered that Philippe had 'piles of journals' in the French, English, and Catalan languages. In brief, Philippe writes words, and I make images. To start our collaboration, I bound two journals and we exchanged them periodically. These two journals are filled with experiments — Philippe gets ideas from my images, and I am inspired by his stories and poems.

        Il palazzo Schifanoia a Ferrara

      Franco Cosimo Panini, Modena 2007 - Franco Cosimo Panini, Modena, 2007. Autore/i: a cura di Salvatore Settis, Walter Cupperi. Ril. Seta titoli in oro Con cofanetto in seta ill. Col. E titoli in oro. 189 ill B/N n.t + 303 Tav. Col. N.t. ISBN 8882908585 9781890206024 9788882908584 Mirabilia Italia (14).Testo in Italiano e Inglese."Schivar la noia". È con questa funzione che alla fine del Trecento, per volere di Alberto V d’Este, viene eretta a Ferrara una residenza destinata allo svago e alla ricreazione dei signori della città. Ampliato nei decenni successivi, il Palazzo Schifanoia viene dotato sotto il governo di Borso d’Este di un grande salone di rappresentanza, il Salone dei Mesi, affrescato tra il 1469 e il 1470 dai grandi maestri dell’Officina ferrarese: Cosmé Tura, rancesco del Cossa ed Ercole de’ Roberti. Un ciclo che per qualità artistica e ricchezza di riferimenti alla cultura neoplatonica del tempo, resta uno esempi più alti e originali dell’arte rinascimentale italiana. Questo XIV volume della collana "Mirabilia Italia", pubblicato in occasione della grande mostra che nell’autunno del 2007 celebrerà i fasti della signoria di Borso, illustra e descrive con una capillare campagna fotografica ed esaurienti apparati storico-critici, non solo il celebre ciclo dei Mesi, oggetto di un recente intervento di restauro, ma anche tutti gli ambienti del Palazzo e le numerose opere d’arte conservate nell’illustre dimora.Il nome diPalazzo Schifanoia, voluto daAlberto V d’Estecome luogo dove i signori della città potessero "schivar la noia", è legato a quello del ducaBorso d’Este, grande mecenate, che tra il 1469 e il 1470 commissionò la decorazione del grande salone di rappresentanza noto comeSalone dei Mesi. Qui grandi autori della scuola pittorica sorta intorno alla corte estense diedero vita a un programma decorativo dove la qualità artistica si unisce alla ricchezza e alla profondità dei richiami alla cultura neoplatonica e astrologica, i cui significati hanno costituito per secoli un enigma per gli studiosi, fino a che Aby Warburg nel 1912 non ha iniziato a identificare alcune delle fonti mitiche e simboliche. Immagini di grande fascino, in cui scene di vita cortese, aspetti del mondo contadino e personaggi mitologici convivono fianco a fianco, sovrastati dagli enigmatici Decani, figure astrologiche derivanti da divinità dell’antico Egitto. Una decorazione complessa ed elegante, che il libro restituisce in tutti i suoi dettagli, compresi i rilievi del portale marmoreo, gli stucchi della Sala della Virtù e le inedite immagini di parti oggi inaccessibili al pubblico. Spiegare e descrivere la complessità della decorazione del palazzo è lo scopo del volume dei testi, aperto da Marco Folin che analizza il rapporto tra il Salone dei Mesi e il suo committente sulla base dei documenti coevi, presentati in appendice al saggio. Carla Di Francesco dedica il suo contributo ai diversi volti e alle diverse funzioni che Palazzo Schifanoia ha assunto nel corso dei secoli, mentre Vincenzo Farinella districa l’intreccio di ruoli tra chi ha commissionato la decorazione, chi l’ha progettata e chi l’ha materialmente realizzata. Un tema, quello dell’iconografia, che torna anche nel saggio di Marco Bertozzi, dedicato agli studi effettuati da Aby Warburg sul Salone dei Mesi, i cui restauri nel corso dei secoli sono al centro del contributo di Jadranka Bentini. Vincenzo Gheroldi si occupa della compresenza di due diverse tecniche pittoriche nel ciclo dei Mesi e delle loro implicazioni sul metodo di lavoro. Gianni Venturi allarga lo sguardo ai giardini e ai palazzi estensi e alla loro presenza nella letteratura degli artisti della corte, Ranieri Varese ricostruisce la storia degli studi delle pitture di Schifanoia e delle pubblicazioni che li hanno documentati. Un percorso di studi e riscoperta che trova il suo culmine nel volume di Mirabilia Italiæ, che presenta non solo gli affreschi del Salone dei Mesi, ma anche i rilievi del portale marmoreo, gli stucchi della Sala delle Virtù e le [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Maureen O'Hara Ure, Colophon: "Last winter, I spent 3 weeks traveling throughout India, drawing in museums and at historical sites, and on long, dusty taxi rides. When I returned to my studio at the University of Utah in January, 2006, I looked back over my travel sketchbooks, and the 2,000 photographs I had taken, as I began painting a series of black and white miniatures on wood panel. After several months?' work, I selected from these images the 8 which make up this volume, this souvenir of my time in India."

        W2LZX

Collaged QSL cards from the collection of Jack Gutzeit archivally printed with Epson chromatic inks on Rives de Lin papers.Text digitally set in Myriad and Formata with handwritten text from photopolymer plates. Letterpress printed on Vandercook Universal III. Bound in etched metal covers with leather spine. Mindy Belloff: "A memorial tribute, the call letters W-2-L-Z-X belonged to the artist's Uncle, a ham radio operator for over 60 years. He was a radio operator aboard a B-17 bomber in WWII and a pioneer in early communications. W2LZX is composed of nostalgic photographs and collaged QSL cards logged by ham radio operators, with personal and historic text. From Morse Code transmissions to computer electronics, hams have made significant contributions to international and mass communications. The stories of W2LZX and others like him resonate culturally, historically, and personally." From the untitled introduction to W2LZX: "When radio contact is made, special postcards, or QSL's (ham language for 'I am acknowledging contact') are sent from both stations, or communicators. Information on a QSL card typically includes the ham's identity, or call name, with the first letter representing the country ... and the number indicating the geographic zone they are located in ... Very often images of the country and personal information about the radio operator are included…. "My Uncle amassed a collection of QSL cards numbering over 10,000. Each card contains a unique story, like small chapters in a lifetime of wondrous narratives from every corner of the world. I have pulled about 500 cards from Jack's shoe boxes. Of these, I have edited a selection representing more than 40 countries, comprising the imagery for the pages of this book.

Set in digital typefaces Utopia STD Display, Italic and Bold, Frutiger 57 Condensed, 67 Bold Condensed, and 56 Italic. Printed by Brian Gilkes at Pharos Editions with 8 inkjet colour pigments on Somerset Book White 175gsm. Section sewn around 3 tapes. Full paper binding with blind blocking on front cover handmade head and tail bands.Bound by George Matuolas. Dust jacket embossing designed by artist and printed by Martin King on Rives BFK 250gsm. Edition size: 25 plus 6 artists proofs. Signed and numbered by the artist and the poet. Chris Wallace-Crabbe: "The surface of things is often held to be a trivial affair. Merely 'superficial,' say the critic, looking down his long nose. But crafty old Bert Brecht knew better, turning up with 'What's so important about depth? It's only deep.'"So when Tommaso Durante came up with the idea of our doing a joint book based on the three visible topoi - skins, surfaces and shadows - I was delighted. The trio had just that combination of the visible and the conceptual that feeds my poetry with vitamins. Accordingly, I got writing, and we worked together on the project: this lovely and harmonious book. The poems turned out to please me and the combination proved to be a delight. After all, the beautiful still has its place, even in the postmodern world."Art Daily: "Skin, Surfaces and Shadows is the new artist book in limited edition by Tommaso Durante. It has a triptych structure with text by the leading Australian poet Chris Wallace-Crabbe. "Skin, Surfaces and Shadows was created by Tommaso Durante in 2004 during his stay in Bundanon (gifted to the Australian people by Arthur & Yvonne Boyd - South East Australia) as international artist in residence and it was enriched during the artist’s stay in Broome (Western Australia) in 2005. On that occasion he collected the raw materials that were subsequently wrought to develop the actual bookwork. "On the edge of the artistic practice and philosophical inspiration, Skin, Surfaces and Shadows transgresses the limits by pushing the boundaries of art, craft and design and by combining digital technologies with traditional techniques and materials. "With the wrought images and design of the artist and the sculptured words of the poet, Skin, Surfaces and Shadows tries to explore the surfaces of things and the figurative dividing line of the shadow, with no fear to run the risk of beauty as a side effect. "Once again a journey for the artist, but this time less autobiographical than the previous Terra Australis and more philosophical, inspirational and thoughtful."Judith Hoffberg, Umbrella review: "With wrought images and design of the artist and the sculptured words of the poet, Durante tries to explore the surfaces of things and the figurative dividing line of the shadow, with no fear to run the risk of beauty as a side effect. In fact, beauty is everywhere–the paper is heavy and handmade to support the gorgeous imagery of prints which go beyond the double pages to the universe itself. The poet Wallace-Crabbe delivers in words that which the images exude–and is directly on target with words about skin, surfaces and shadows. From race, to global warming, to eye-catchers to the science of shadows, to cinema and photography and the search for truth, the poet follows the artist and captures with words that which is unspoken by the artist. It is a gorgeous duet in which the poet and the artist flit in and out of shadows, skin and the surfaces of paper and life.
