        Cook, the Discoverer (deluxe edition)

      Sydney,: Hordern House and the Australian National Maritime Museum, 2007.. Quarto (248 x 212 mm), 276 pages, two illustrations, numbered and signed by Dr Nigel Erskine; bound in tan kangaroo leather and housed in a specially designed cloth slipcase by Wayne Stock. Deluxe issue of the first English edition of one of the earliest and best biographies of Captain James Cook, limited to just fifty copies. This work includes a 106-page exact facsimile of the rare original German printing of 1787, followed by a newly-commissioned 116-page English translation.Although the relationship between the Forsters and the British establishment soured on their return in 1775, Georg continued to show the utmost admiration for his former captain's resolve and skill as an explorer. Over the following decade he published many books on voyages and the Pacific, and was already considered an expert when he was commissioned by the Berlin publishers Haude & Spener to translate the official third voyage account into German, to be accompanied by a new introduction and memoir of Cook (see catalogue no. XXX). Richly detailed, the essay combines personal memoir with a carefully argued appraisal of Cook's unique contribution to scientific discovery on all three voyages: Forster always believed that the essay finally did justice to the memory of the great discoverer, drawing from his personal experience of sailing on the great second voyage.With an introductory essay by Dr Nigel Erskine, Curator of Discovery at the Australian National Maritime Museum.

        Suppose One Were A Fish

      Incunabla, [Seattle] 2007 - A broadside excerpt from Crowley's Little, Big, issued in conjunction with what was to be the 25th anniversary edition of Crowley's World Fantasy Award-winning novel, which is still a work-in-progress but has yet to be published. A 24" x 37" poster, with art by Peter Milton, whose haunting drawings, etchings, engravings and prints were to grace the new edition. When Little, Big was first published, Ursula LeGuin famously wrote that "all by itself it calls for a redefinition of fantasy"; Thomas Disch called it "the greatest fantasy novel ever." The literary critic Harold Bloom listed three books by John Crowley, including Little, Big, in his book The Western Canon. Bloom is listed as providing an Introduction to the anniversary edition of the novel. One can get a sense, from this poster, of the aesthetic of the anniversary volume, as one can from various parts of the above website. The lettered limited edition of the poster, one of 26 lettered copies, this being letter "L," signed by John Crowley, artist Peter Milton, editor John Drummond and book designer John D. Berry. Rolled; else fine. A scarce artifact of a publishing project that is still underway, associated with one of the best-loved and most highly regarded fantasy novels of all time.

        Futuria Fantasia

      Graham, 2007 Lettered limited first hardcover edition. Fine book and jacket housed in Fine, black cloth-covered clamshell box. The lettered version is bound in quarter leather with illustrated cloth-covered boards. It is signed on the limitation page by both Bradbury and Forrest J. Ackerman. This is copy "F" of 52 lettered copies. Laid-in is a photograph of Craig Graham with Bradbury, who is holding a copy of the book. This volume contains Bradbury's first works that were printed in the first volume, four issues, of "Futuria Fantasia" a slim, pseudo-magazine that Bradbury, working with Forrest J. Ackerman and collaborating with artist Hannes Bok (1914 - 1964), edited and published himself. A hundred copies, at 10 cents, of each issue were produced during 1939 and 1940. These are reproduced in exact facsimile here, in the original green ink, with many illustrations by Bok. The issues of "Futuria Fantasia" contained many contributions by Ackerman and Bradbury using various pseudonyms. Other contributors included: Robert Heinlein (using the pseudonym Lyle Monroe), Damon Knight, Henry Kuttner, and Bruce Yerke. The book consists of a preface by Bradbury, an interview of Bradbury by Craig Graham., and then the issues of the magazine. Thanks to Graham for saving them from being lost forever! A very interesting glimpse into the past and Bradbury's formative years after High School; too poor to attend college, he hung around the Clifton's Cafeteria Science Fiction Club, thank heavens. Signed on the limitation page by Bradbury and Ackerman. A note from the publisher on the final page explains some details of the production and is signed by Craig Graham and Michael Graham.. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine.

        43 According to Robin Price, with Annotated Bibliography

      Robin Price Publisher Middletown, CT: Robin Price, Publisher, 2007. Hard Cover. Fine. Hard Cover. Number 49 of 86 copies. Robin Price has designed, printed, and published books for over twenty-five years. Her works can be found in university and public library collections throughout North America and Europe. This book is particularly personal, as well as complex and mysterious.Ms. Price says that "Text excerpts from 86 books significant to me-mostly other artist's books-were gathered using formulas based on the number 43, which was my age at the genesis of the project." In her announcement for this book, she says that 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." Paper maps from locations along the 43rd parallels are bound in an accordion that structurally supports the main text, which is printed on graph paper and also hinged together as an accordion. A Legend Card and supplemental Annotated Bibliography are included. The unusual double-layer accordion is housed in an olive-green cloth-covered clamshell box with a river section printed in blue, and a map-paper spine label. The book was co-designed and co-produced with Daniel E. Kelm at the Wide Awake Garage. The typefaces are hand-set ATF Garamond and Kabel. Six colors are printed letterpress. All additional printing within the structure is also letterpress, except for the laser-printed text sheets of the 32 pp bibliography. 11.75 x 8 x 1.5 inches, opens to 20 ft wide; 32 pages with supplemental 32 pp booklet.

        Epigraphe pour un Livre Condamne. Mezzotints and Drypoint by Judith Rothchild.

      Verdigris, [Octon, France] 2007 - One of 33 copies, all on Hahnemuhle paper, each signed and numbered by the artist, Judith Rothchild, and the printer, Mark Lintott. Page size: 3-1/2 x 3-1/8 inches; 10pp. Bound by Mark Lintott: leporello style with marbled Venetian paper over boards, title printed in black on spine and front cover, housed in publisher's marbled paper over boards slipcase. Hand set and printed on an 8 x 5 Adana press in Vendome Romain by Mark Lintott. Ms. Rothchild's mezzotints of a thumb holding down a page of a book and an open eye and a closed eye are piercing. The drypoints that surround each page of text are grass-like and pastoral contrasting sharply with strong eye - reflecting Baudelaire's address to the reader in this poem from his FLEURS DU MAL. English Translation: Roy Campbell, POEMS OF BAUDELAIRE (New York: Pantheon Books, 1952)Epigraph for a Condemned Book Dear reader, peaceful and bucolic, Ingenuous, sober, hierophantic, Lay by this book so corybantic, So Saturnine, and melancholic.If elsewhere than in Satan's school You learned your syntax and your grammar, Lay by! You'll think I rave and stammer And am a stark, hysteric fool.But if, not yielding to their charm, Your eye can plumb the gulfs of harm — Then learn to love me, read my verses.Inquiring sufferer, who seekYour Paradise, to you I speak:Pity me! else, receive my curses!

        Beyond the 6th Extinction: A Fifth Millennium Bestiary

      Paperboy Press [Chicago]: Paperboy Press. 2007. Artist's book, one of 15 copies only, all on handmade cotton / abaca paper, book board, and Arches watercolor board and linen thread, each numbered and signed in pencil by the artist, Shawn Sheehy, on the colophon. Page size: 6-7/8 x 10 inches; 22pp; one of which is colophon and one front pastedown. Bound by the artist: this copy tan paper over boards, tan re-purposed leather spine (variations in leather from copy to copy) with green paper strip marking join (variations in paper from copy to copy); pages hinged with tabs, endpages glued to boards to accommodate extremely thick pages with the popups. There are 8 remarkable pop-ups of mythical creatures in their mythical habitat; the names of the creatures are lettered in cut-out along the last quarter of each recto. The creatures in this fantasy bestiary (although based on actual organisms that are known survivors) are: Rex Roach, Clam Fungus, Dreadhead, Peteybug, Brownfield Pigeon, Bloomworm, Snapdragon, and Rotrap. The artist tells us that in Richard Leakey's book, THE SIXTH EXTINCTION, the five major catastrophes in Earth's history are delineated. Leakey theorizes that the sixth major extinction has begun, and it is human authored. Mr. Sheehy has used this as the starting point of BEYOND THE 6TH EXTINCTION, postulating a look at existing creatures in the year 4297 - which are phenomenally large and reproduced here in smaller size - using the ubiquitous polymer-based digital storage unit (CD) on each page to establish size. The text is set digitally in Joanna and printed from polymer plates. The papers used to construct these creatures are in tans, grays, whites, and subdued blues and greens. They are spiky, scaly, and creepy. They are certainly ingenious representations of the sort of creature that might actually survive the chaos created by humankind. This is a book of fabulous creatures - ingeniously constructed - to give the reader / viewer cause to worry about the future of planet Earth and its inhabitants. See an Image.

He returned to the front in September 1918 during the final advance on the German lines. His courage in the ensuing conflict won him the MC, but he was killed while crossing the Sambre and Oise Canal near Ors in the early morning of 4 November—one week before the armistice. See ODNB.

        The Children of Hurin, 1st UK Edition, with Bookplate Signed By Christopher Tolkien and Alan Lee, signed and dated 4-17-07, Also Signed By Bernard Hill (King Theoden)

      London: Harper Collins, 2007. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Alan Lee. Signed by Illustrator & Editor. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Children of Hurin by J.R.R. Tolkien, published April 17, 2007 by Harper Collins. Signed by the editor and illustrator, Christopher Tolkien and Alan Lee, as well as the actor Bernard Hill (King Theoden) who was in attendance at the Waterfords Release Party on April 17, 2007, to the special bookplate, featuring Lee's motif of the Helm of Hador, attached to the front free endpaper. Also included is a bookmark signed by Alan Lee at the time of the signing at Waterfords. This copy is also one of the few dated 17-4-07 by Alan Lee on the bookplate. "The Children of Hurin, UK Edition The first standalone tale of Middle-earth since 1977, and the first complete version of one of J.R.R. Tolkien's 'Great Tales', with many exclusive features:" "Drawing together J.R.R. Tolkiens original manuscripts, using many sources spaced out over decades, Christopher Tolkien has constructed a narrative without any editorial invention." "Includes a brand new red and black Map of Beleriand specially drawn by Christopher Tolkien, which appears as a fold-out sheet." "Contains eight colour paintings and twenty-five pencil sketches, specially commissioned from award-winning artist, Alan Lee." "Includes a specially written introduction and appendix on the history and writing of the tale by Christopher Tolkien." With Houghton Mifflin wishing to reach out and do something special for the loyal Tolkien fans, along with Christopher Tolkien's reluctance to grant public appearances, they conceived the idea for a signed bookplate, which Christopher Tolkien and Alan Lee both agreed to. It seems approximately 900 bookplates were signed, less than 500 for distribution in the US, and 250 for the UK, with the remainder held for other promotions. A very hard to find edition, with the signed and dated bookplate, guaranteed to be from the original release party at Waterfords in London. This was the only event that featured both Alan Lee and was attended by Bernard Hill, so the additional signature provides excellent provenance for this copy. Don't expect to see many of these for sale, as most will end up in private collections. Additional digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions.. Signed by Illustrator. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. As New/with Jacket, as Issued. Illus. by Alan Lee. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. As New / As New.

        Faksimile - Gebetbuch Karls des Kühnen. Los Angeles, Getty Museum, Ms. 37.

      Faksimile: (13,5 cm x 10.5 cm), 318 S., 47 farb. Miniaturen., 360 Zierleisten; Kommentarbd.: Gr.8°, 310 S., zahlr. Abb., Faksimile: Samteinband m. je vier vergoldeten Eckbeschlägen und je ein vergoldetes Medaillon mit zwei Schließen. Kommentarbd.: OLwd. auf Schuber montiert mit Plexiglasabdeckung., Fakismile: tadell.; Kommentarbd.: Deckel Minimal angeschmutzt, tadell. VERGRIFFEN. Nr. 688 der 980 arab. num. Auflage (zusätzl. 80 röm. num. Ex., diese nicht im Handel). Karl der Kühne, Herzog von Burgund liess sich um 1460 vom Buchmaler Lieven van Lathem, dem Wiener Meister der Maria von Burgund sowie dem Schreiber Nicolas Spierinc ein Gebetbuch zum persönlichen Gebrauch anfertigen: das Gebetbuch Karls des Kühnen. Es legt Zeugnis davon ab, daß der mächtigste Mann in Europa auch als Mäzen nicht seinesgleichen hatte - ist doch das Buch Seite für Seite mit Gold ausgestattet! Auf 159 Blättern im Format 124 x 92 mm entfaltet sich in insgesamt 47 Miniaturen die überbordende Pracht burgundischer Bücherliebe. Die zeichnerische Fabulierlust setzt sich bis in die erfindungsreichen Bordüren fort, wo sich zwischen farbigem Akanthus und Goldpollen ungezählte Drolerien, Menschen und Vögel tummeln. Drei Porträts des Auftraggebers belegen die sehr persönliche Beziehung Karls zu seinem Gebetbuch. Auch die Textseiten beeindrucken durch reichen Schmuck. Die feine Kalligraphie wird von mehr als 360 Initialen auf zumeist ziseliertem Goldgrund gegliedert; jede Textseite ist zudem mit einer ornamentalen Bordüre verziert. So spiegelt das Gebetbuch Karls des Kühnen Seite für Seite Pracht und Luxus Burgunds wider. Die Künstler: Zeit seines Lebens wirkte Lieven van Lathem als Buchmaler im Kulturraum Flandern, zwischen Gent und Brügge, Antwerpen und Utrecht. Um 1430 geboren, war er zuerst Mitglied der Malergilde in Gent, später, bis zu seinem Tod 1490, Mitglied der Lukasgilde in Antwerpen. Aufgrund seines überragenden Talents wurde er schon früh Hofmaler Herzog Philipps des Guten, des Vaters Karls des Kühnen. Später berief ihn auch Kaiser Maximilian I. an seinen Hof. Gegen Ende des 15. Jahrhunderts galt das flämische Antwerpen als Zentrum der Landschaftsmalerei; aber es war van Lathem mit seiner stimmungsvollen Kunst, der den Weg dahin bereitet hatte. Ein Name ist mit der Malschule von Gent-Brügge untrennbar verbunden: der des Wiener Meisters der Maria von Burgund - gerühmt für seine Ausdruckskraft, wenn es darum ging, feine Gesichter oder bewegtes Muskelspiel auf Pergament lebendig werden zu lassen. Seine Identität ist nicht gelüftet, doch vermuten viele Kunsthistoriker in ihm Alexander Bening, den Vater Simon Benings, des letzten großen Meisters aus Flandern. Mit dem Gebetbuch Karls des Kühnen betrat er erstmals die künstlerische Bühne, und schon hier erhält die Kunstwelt einen Eindruck von diesem einmaligen Talent. Als Schreiber für sein Gebetbuch konnte Karl der Kühne mit Nicolas Spierinc Burgunds berühmtesten Kalligraphen verpflichten. Spierinc ist freilich nicht nur die gelungene Schönschrift zu verdanken, er schmückte viele Seiten auch mit wunderbaren Kadellen, also mit Buchstaben, die kunstvoll mit Linien in Schrifttinte verziert wurden. Zum Teil wurden die Kadellen sogar zusätzlich mit mattglänzendem Gold gefüllt - ein Schimmern, das auch im Faksimile originalgetreu wiedergegeben wird. Der Kommentarband vom renommierten Kunsthistoriker Antoine de Schryver Beiliegend die Dokumentationsmappe m 3 faksimilierten Blättern.

        Die Gesetze der Angelsachsen. 4 Vols. in 3 books. Complete set

      2007. Liebermann, Felix. Die Gesetze der Angelsachsen. Halle a. S., M. Niemeyer, 1898-1912. 4 Vols. in 3 books. lxii, 675; viii, 758; [6], 356 pp. ISBN-13: 9781584778363. ISBN-10: 1584778369. Reprinted 2007 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. Cloth. New. * Text in Anglo-Saxon, Latin and German. "Liebermann's edition has superseded all others; and has gone a long way towards providing us with a complete text of the materials for the history of English law both before the Conquest, and also of that confused period which lies between the Conquest and the reign of Henry II. (.)For this edition Liebermann examined about one hundred and eighty manuscripts in more than forty libraries in England and on the continent. He does not content himself with giving us a single text. He gives us in parallel columns the texts of all the leading manuscripts of the Anglo-Saxon laws, in the notes are divergent readings, and, on the opposite page, are passages from the post-Conquest literature based on these laws. As Maitland says, the book looks like the full score of an opera.' And, in addition to the texts, Liebermann has given us an account of the former editions, a dictionary of Anglo-Saxon and Latin words, a subject glossary, introductions to, and a commentary on, the laws. The book is thus far more than a text of the Anglo-Saxon laws and Anglo-Norman law books. The texts are explained; and, in the glossary, the material is not only collected under appropriate headings, it is systematically arranged in the form of concise essays, which contain many relevant references to other Germanic bodies of law, and to other Anglo-Norman sources. It is, as Professor Hazeltine has said, one of the finest products of the new historical school of the nineteenth century.": Holdsworth, The Historians of Anglo-American Law 127-128.

He returned to the front in September 1918 during the final advance on the German lines.

Folio (9" x 14"). 5,802 pp. With New Introductory Notes and Tables in Each Volume Naming all Justices and Serjeants, and Listing Calendar Years of Law Terms, by David J. Seipp, Professor of Law, Boston University, with Carol F. Lee of the District of Columbia Bar. Reprinted 2007 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. Set: ISBN-13: 9781584777816; ISBN-10: 1584777818. Hardcover, folio (9" x 14"). * Reprint of the Vulgate edition, with new detailed introductions that address the history, content and significance of The Year Books, and tables that list all justices and sergeants, as well as calendar years of law terms. The new material includes references to Seipp's Index and Paraphrase of Printed Year Book Reports 1268-1535, which is based on the Vulgate edition reprinted here. A powerful research tool, Seipp's Index and Paraphrase of Printed Year Book Reports, 1268-1535 is a free online database of all printed Year Book reports that indexes and summarizes almost all of the cases in this edition. It also guides the reader to later and prior proceedings of individual cases and to all case references in abridgments and other sources. It is difficult to overestimate the importance of The Year Books. As Marvin put it in his Legal Bibliography (1847), these were the "venerable books" from which Littleton, Hobart, Hale and Coke drew "so much valuable ore, melting it into ingots and refining and sending it abroad as the correct coin of the common law" (756). As a series of notes on debates and points of pleadings they are primary sources for our knowledge of medieval common law. The origin of The Year Books is unknown. Maitland believed that the earliest volumes were notes taken by law students in court copied for the use of pleaders in later cases. Holdsworth maintained that The Year Books, like other law reports, were records of cases made by lawyers for their own private use with no thought toward subsequent publication. Though it is not known when the first volumes were compiled,

        Curiosity and Enlightenment. Collectors and Collections from the Sixteenth to the Nineteenth Centuery

      New Haven: Yale University Press, 2007.. First Edition. Black Cloth. Near Fine/Very Good. 280mm x 220mm 9780300124934 x., 386pp., col. & b/w illus., notes, biblio.. Minor shelfwear, rubbing, edgewear to dj.. ' This fascinating and unique book offers a history of museum collecting in western Europe over the course of its formative centuries, tracing its origins from the culture of collecting that emerged during the Renaissance, which served the purposes of both prestige and academic enquiry, and concluding with the great changes of the nineteenth century which would prove so influential to the museum movement of later years. Taking into account both individual collectors and public institutions, Arthur MacGregor covers topics such as the methods by which materials from both the manmade and natural world were selected and displayed, problems of preservation and presentation, the specialization of individual areas, such as fine arts, antiquities or natural history, as well as the developments of the nineteenth century which brought such collections within the reach of a much wider public. With the aid of 200 images, this book offers for the first time a wide-ranging survey of this entire process as well as the changing preoccupations of collectors, all set within a broader social context.'

        Angelique and the Pearl Necklace

      Foolsgold Studio Vashon, WA: Foolsgold Studio. 2007. One of 60 copies, 50 of which are for sale, all signed and numbered by the artist / author, Donald Glaister, each book on pages of painted stiffened fabric on which dimensional constructions are mounted, text printed on Zerkall Frankfurt paper. Page size: 15-1/4 x 9-1/4 inches; 40pp. Bound by Donald Glaister: quarter leather made of Nigerian goatskin with wood veneers and cloth over boards, housed in drop spine box made at Book Lab II. The artist tells us that this new book is inspired by hand-made wooden sailboats, citing their custom craftsmanship, exotic materials and a balance of wild adventure and the need to survive it all. The result, he adds, is a happy combination of these elements resulting in a beautiful contradiction: a craft that is serenely graceful yet brutally sound. His book is an homage to the material and spiritual grace of these boats and to sailing. The text is a two-part poem with studies of the materials used to make sail boats, the spirit of sailing, and the rhythm of the sea. Most of the book's painted, stiffened fabric pages have original collages of painted cloth, wood veneer, brass, cork, linen thread and acrylic paint - all materials used in boat building. The poem is printed letterpress by Jessica Spring at Springtide Press in Scala Sans typeface. The result is an intriguingly beautiful book with images at once reminiscent of ancient Greek or Roman triremes or Viking Drakkar (Dragon) war ships, but at the same time completely contemporary or rather anticipating future designs. The perfections of Mr. Glaister's book construction, not to mention the overwhelming beauty of each page on which a variety of materials are organized and manipulated to make an astonishingly original work of art, directly correspond to the beauty and exacting skill necessary to build a wood sail boat. By deconstructing the idea a "boat" - as well as the very notion of navigating on water - Mr. Glaister has constructed a perfect book. See an Image.

      Berkeley, CA: Flying Fish Press. 2007. One of 100 copies, each signed and numbered on the inside of the box by the author, artist, and designer, Julie Chen. Box: 13-3/4 x 6-1/4 x 4-3/4 inches, wrapped in dull gold and oyster white Japanese book cloths with title printed in black on green paper label; closure in green paper and oyster-colored book cloth over book board with title printed in black; closure with magnet and corresponding magnet in case. The box contains two books: MISE EN SCENE and AFTERIMAGE, both printed letterpress. MISE EN SCENE is printed on a single long sheet of grey paper with laser cut outs. The page is inserted between the top lighter grey page and the bottom grey- green page. The cut-out text on gray paper gives the illusion of floating freely in space when the book is opened. MISE EN SCENE is bound accordion style with green cloth over boards with a lighter grey-green cloth and paper label in green printed with title in black and sewn with grey thread on the exterior edge. AFTERIMAGE text is printed in black on grey-green paper that is bound accordion style between double fold of green paper silkscreen printed with tree limbs in darker green. The text is behind Mylar and appears in laser cutouts in the page spread. The two books are housed on each side of the box. In the center of the box is a still life of water and trees. This diorama is made of concrete, resin with trees made for architectural models and is behind Plexiglas that is hinged at the top and can be opened from the bottom. Once again, Ms. Chen has created an intricate book / object. The execution is flawless, but not simply as a display of virtuosity. Rather, the physical object is designed to engage the reader / viewer in conveying her text, and she succeeds admirably. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/9927.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        Bluebird. Autograph musical manuscript of a setting for two female voices with instrumental accompaniment of Herman Melville&#39;s poem, "Bluebird." A complete working draft

      5 pp. Folio (355 x 280 mm.). Notated in pencil with additional markings in coloured ink. Signed and dated 2007. . Tsontakis studied with Hugo Weisgall, Felix Greissle and Roger Sessions. His honours include the Charles Ives Living Award, the Grawemeyer, two Kennedy Center Friedheim Awards (1989, 1992), a lifetime achievement award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters (1995), a Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship (1996) and numerous commissions.& & "[His] early works are written in a dissonant chromatic idiom not unlike that of Sessions. His musical language soon shifted, however, towards a classically-influenced style characterized by large-scale harmonic prolongations and what he calls &#39;the timeless gesture&#39;, a reference to the past through evocation rather than quotation. With the String Quartet no. 3 &#39;Carragio&#39; (1986) he arrived at an idiosyncratic tonal language propelled by a non-minimalist, Beethovenian use of repetition. Another primary feature of his work, particularly notable in the Byzantium Kanon (1986) and Stabat mater (1990), is the influence of sacred music of the Greek Orthodox church. Secular folk music of the same region figures prominently in the oratorio Erotokritos (1982) and other works." Eric Moe in Grove online

Page size: 9-7/8 x 5 inches (at widest point) and 2 inches at tip; 12pp. Bound by the artist, Lois Morrison: loose with two grommets at top of page and laced with rainbow silk thread, boards covered with yellow, green, brown cloth with all over grass pattern in shape of turkey foot, with turkey foot from La Gurilla (Mexico City) on front board, wrapped in red, yellow, blue and green fruit patterned Mexican oilcloth. Printed by the artist on a Gocco printer and using a Staedtler Mars master cut block. The typeface is Ill Omen. There are two pop-ups of turkeys on the first and last pages; the other pages are collage and original prints that have been heightened with Pigma pens by hand. The text, "These feet / were made / for trotting / and that's / just what / they'll do. / One of / these days / they'll just / trot away / from you." is printed in light brown on tan "labels" on each page. The prints on the pages are in green, black, blue , gray, etc., and are of thick woody areas. There are red gates and flying turkeys - some of the turkeys are laser printed. Plastic, Tyvek and Frasier's passport paper are all used in the inventive collages that comprise each page. Pop up turkeys? Turkey feet? What more could anyone want in an artist's book?!
