        Ani-San, Samukaro? Omae Samukaro

      New York: Zucker Art Books, 2007/2008. Fine. Number 8 of 19 copies, of which only 15 were offered for sale. The text is an excerpt taken from "Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan" by Lafcadio Hearn (1894). The book retells the poignant story of a brother and sister who, unable to pay rent after the death of their parents, are thrown out of their house by the landlord in the middle of winter without even a blanket. Wrapped in their only remaining belongings, blue kimonos, they huddle together behind their house and are buried by snow. The spirits of the children haunt the blanket that their landlord stole from them before turning them out of their home. Anyone sleeping under the blanket can still hear the children';s voices calling to each other: "Ani-San, Samukaro?" (Elder Brother, are you cold?) "Omae Samukaro" (No, are you cold?). This exquisite book is hand bound using traditional Japanese techniques and is printed on white gampi paper. Nineteen photomicrographs of snow crystals taken by the artists during several snowstorms illustrate the story. The verso of each image is painted with white acrylic and the front is hand-coated with a stroke of varnish. Material from an antique blue patterned kimono wraps around the book and fastens together with a red and white ribbon. Each ribbon end has a small paper flag printed with the questions that form the title. Appropriately, the lining of the kimono is thread bare with several thin tears. A unique snowflake photograph which is printed on gampi paper, coated in encaustic, and signed by both artists accompanies the book. Each book in this edition features a different photograph. A colophon printed on a single sheet of paper and signed by both artists rests beneath the kimono. The book [40 pages], kimono, colophon, and print are housed in a hand crafted bass wood Japanese box which measures 11.75 x 11.75 inches. The widely acclaimed artists who created this masterpiece, Doug and Mike Starn, are identical twins born in New Jersey in 1961. They began collaboratively experimenting with photography at age thirteen and have since expanded into sculpture, installation, video, and painting. The main themes explored in their work involve the relationships between light and dark, past and present, and technology and nature. Images of snowflakes, decaying foliage, ancient statues, Old Master paintings, and nocturnal insects haunt many of their pieces. They are represented in museums around the world including the Metropolitan Musuem of Art (New York), the Corcoran Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C.), the National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne, Australia), the National Museum of Contemporary Art (South Korea), and many more. They have received two National Endowment for the Arts grants (1987 & 1995), the Infinity Award for Fine Art Photography from the International Center for Photography (1992), and many other awards. Their varying interests have led them to collaborate artistically with Russian author Victor Pelevin, American actor Dennis Hopper, NASA scientists and others. Recently they have been commissioned to create a permanent art installation for the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority which is scheduled to open in 2008. ARTB/052108m.

"The Children of Hurin, The first standalone tale of Middle-earth since 1977, and the first complete version of one of J.R.R.

        The Temperamental Rose and other ways of seeing color

      Vancouver, BC: Heavenly Monkey Editions, 2007. Leather Bound. Limited Edition, one of only thirty copies. Large square octavo (7 x 9"). [40pp]. With more than twenty illustrations throughout, the majority of which are hand-colored or detailed in some fashion. Bound in an original design by Claudia Cohen, who created a three-piece case, with a leather spine and contrasting fore edges. The boards are covered in an early 20th century European embossed paper, over which a number of different circular leather overlays are placed. Issued in a clamshell box, along with a set of six dry artist's pigments in wax-sealed glass vials. This copy with an original prospectus and a half dozen original postage stamps created by Barbara Hodgson, several for 'The Temperamental Rose'. A Fine copy, as issued. The initial book issued as a triogy of sorts, the other two being 'After Image' and 'Occupied by Colour.' // "A collaboration between author and book designer Barbara Hodgson, and bookbinder Claudia Cohen. The Temperamental Rose & Other Ways of Seeing Colour was borne during the collaborators' first meeting, in the summer of 2006, when they discovered mutual passions for colour wheels and other systems for charting and codifying colours. Inspired by centuries of colour studies, including those of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and M.-E. Chevreul, the authors reproduce existing colour wheels as well as create new and fanciful ways of seeing colour. An introductory essay discusses the history of colour, and each of the charts is accompanied by explanatory text. There is also a bibliography and colophon. Designed by Barbara, all of the text and the outlines of the colour charts are printed letterpress from polymer plates by David Clifford of Black Stone Press. She then spent six weeks doing the extensive handwork required to complete each copy. The book is bound by Claudia in a three-piece case, with leather spine and fore edges. The boards are covered in an early 20th century European embossed paper, over which a number of different circular leather overlays are placed. The book (7 x 9 inches, 40 pp) is issued in a clamshell box, along with a set of six dry artist's pigments in wax-sealed glass vials. Due to the amount of handwork involved with each copy, the edition was just 30 numbered and five AP copies. (Available by advance order to subscribers only, copies 1-8 included an original hand-coloured wheel considered for, but ultimately not used in the book.) 'The Temperamental Rose' was fully subscribed prior to publication."~ from the publisher. Image or additional images available upon request

      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.

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.

Bound by John Sewell at the Gregynog Press using some of the original equipment. Owen, Wilfred Edward Salter, who on 4 June was commissioned into the Manchester regiment, crossed over to France on 29 December. He joined the 2nd Manchesters on the Somme and, in the second week of January 1917 (one of the coldest on record), led his platoon into the trenches. 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.

        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.

        Sylv: Fifty Specimens Printed Directly From The Wood With Historical Anecdotes & Observations.: Woodwork by Dick Sorenson

With 53 wood block illustrations printed in brown, tan, gold, russet, yellow, and green of which 19 are folding plates. Bound in the publisher's original white leather spine and natural wood boards with the spine stamped in gilt in a navy blue cloth slipcase. A study of 24 species of tree found on the lands of Farm 590 in Pepin County, Wisconsin. Book condition: Fine condition/fine slipcase. Twenty wooded acres surround Midnight Paper Sales in western Wisconsin. This book documents the journey of Ben Verhoeven and Gaylord Schanilec into the woods to create a work not only about these trees, but of these trees.In all 24 species have been catalogued through image, historical anecdotes, and notes taken during the cutting, milling, engraving and printing. The 53 images consist primarily of long grain and end grain specimens which have been taken from this property. In each case the image is manipulated through either color, impression, engraving, or some combination of the above to emphasize a certain characteristic of a species. The text varies as well from tree to tree, focusing on what role each played in the local history and in this project.
