        Ashima

      Philadelphia, Pennsylvania:: Colette Fu,, 2008 - 2015.. Edition of 10. 17 x 25 x 10.5" single opening pop-up. Ink: Epson Ultrachrome Ink. Paper: Epson Enhanced Matte mounted onto Cougar 60lb smooth cover. Glue: PVA and 3M 568 Positionable Adhesive. Cover: Black Iris cloth and embroidered Tyvek. Colette Fu: "The Sani live in and around Stone Forest, and are a subgroup of the Yi. Their lives are as colorful as their embroidered clothing, and they treasure song and dance above wealth and success. Their legend of Ashima is sung from generation to generation and is an inspiration for Sani women today who refer to it as 'the song of our ethics'. "Ashima was a young Sani girl engaged to be married to (her cousin) Ahei. Azhi, the son of the village leader, tried to force her to marry him. Azhi unleashed a trio of tigers to kill Ahei, who killed the tigers with arrows and escaped unscathed. But when Ashima and Ahei were playing by a river, Azhi generated a flood and Ashima drowned and turned into river stones. Her words are echoed through the forest: 'I will never disappear even as the sun and cloud disappear, my soul and my sound will exist till the end of time.' Sani people say that Ashima's suffering is their suffering. "My great grandfather Governor and General Lung Yun's calligraphy is prominently carved in red above the entrance. He governed Yunnan from 1927-45 and was nicknamed 'King of Yunnan.'

        Aphrodisias.

      2008 - Large landscape folio (478 x 350 mm). Bound by hand in a textured Japanese cloth, presented in a slipcase; pp. 240 including 175 full colour photo plates, numerous plans. First edition. Aphrodisias was a free and autonomous city within the Roman province of Asia, in Western Turkey. It was best known for the sanctuary of its patron goddess, Aphrodite, and for its marble sculptors. The community prospered under the early and middle Roman empire (first-second centuries AD), when it built a complete set of marble buildings that made the town a proper city in ancient eyes. Aphrodisias sheds valuable light on interaction between Greek and Roman identity, the functioning of empire, religious conflict and accommodation, and transition from antiquity to the Middle Ages. Aphrodisian sculptors are known to have worked abroad on prestigious commissions, for example, at Hadrian’s villa at Tivoli. The surviving body of sculpture is rich and varied. There are statues of gods, heroes, emperors, benefactors, philosophers, and athletes, as well as mythological groups, decorative figures, and ornamental and figured relief sculptures. Many of the key pieces occupy key positions in the history of Roman art. The sculpture of the city is a legacy of unrivalled importance in this field. The archaeology of Aphrodisias gives a fuller, more vivid picture of later classical art in its ancient context than is possible at any other site. Text by Prof. R.R.R. Smith and Julia Lenagham.

        Snorri's Pool

      Urbana, Illinois:: Bea Nettles,, 2008.. Edition of 4. 4 x 7.75 x 1.25; 14 pages. Cloth over bookboard covers with Icelandic fish skin spine. Paper title inset in front board. Collage on bookboard printed by Epson inkjet. During Nettles, residency at Hafnaborg Cultural Center in Hafnarfjördur, Iceland, in the summer of 2007, she visited and photographed several historic locations, including Snorri's Pool. The pool was constructed by 13th-century scholar-chieftain Snorri Sturluson at his home at Reykholt, west Iceland. Snorri's Pool is unusual in being man-made (normally the geothermal pools were natural) and is one of a few constructions preserved from Iceland?'s medieval period. The collaged pages include excerpts by and about Sturluson, but the major focus is the feel of Iceland rendered by the craggy collages and the rocky palatte of the photographs.

        Excerpts from The Four Books on Architecture. Translated by Robert Tavernor & Richard Schofield

      Bremen, Maine and New York: Red Angel Press, 2008. One of 50 copies, all on Fabriano Artistico paper, signed and numbered by the artist / publisher / printer, Ronald Keller. Page size: 17-1/4 x 10-1/4 inches; [i-v] 14 numbered pages with colophon printed on verso of page 14 which is a fold-out. This edition is highlighted with a paper cast rendering of the Villa Almerico - Capra which is mounted on the inside back cover of the book. The front cover is split in the center of the book and the pages open both to left and right. As the pages are turned, the leaves are trimmed narrower, gradually revealing the cast paper bas-relief image of the facade of La Rotonda on the inside back cover. The book is bound in tan cloth with the title, "PALLADIO" printed in deeper brown to the left of center. The title page is printed in brown and black. The text is set in Bembo and Caslon for the title. The text is further embellished by two additional architectural renderings by Palladio. Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) wrote FOUR BOOKS ON ARCHITECTURE as well as designing some of the most beautiful buildings in the world. Considered one of his most beautiful buildings, the Villa Almerico-Capra is honored in this book. The text (from FOUR BOOKS ON ARCHITECTURE) is taken from the chapters dealing with the construction basics of classic architecture - sand, stone, timber, metals, etc. - and gives concise analyses of them. Mr. Keller's paper bas relief is strong and vibrant - as elegant as the Veneto countryside.
