      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.

      Newtown, PA: Bird & Bull Press, 2008. quarter morocco with Japanese cloth sides, leather spine label. Bird & Bull Press. small 4to. quarter morocco with Japanese cloth sides, leather spine label. 194 pages. First edition, limited to 150 numbered copies. The private press has been with us in one form or another for 200 years or more. The equipment for a small private press was inexpensive, required little space and almost anyone could learn to do basic printing in a short time. Private typecasting is entirely different. A single machine weighs almost a ton and a lot of practice and experience is required in order to decently produce the most basic work. This once-costly equipment came into the hands of printing enthusiasts when hot-metal typesetting was forced into decline by the computer. The members of this hot-metal fraternity comprise a network of small shops using the machines and matrices which once supported the hot-metal letterpress era. They are, in effect, a group of small, working museums. The work of fifteen of these typecasters has been gathered into the pages of this book. Here you will see unknown, newly-created types, ancient types cast from 200-year-old matrices, proprietary types and a beautiful Civilité face designed by Hermann Zapf, which was never released to the commercial market. There are five fold-out pages, two of which open together to make a 32-inch spread. One of the fold-outs is a recreated page from the 36-line Gutenberg Bible with rubrication. It took six months to turn the printed images on the original page into a complete font of hand-fitted metal types. Printed on dampened handmade paper, this leaf required a week's work, and handling it is as close as most of us will get to experiencing the genuine page. A biographical sketch of each contributor precedes his alphabets and the specimen pages which show the alphabets in use. Produced over a 14-month period, the labor and expense lavished on this work exceeds any previous book from Bird & Bull Press. The Private Typecasters, a 194-page small folio printed on Zerkall mould-made paper, is beautifully bound in quarter morocco with Japanese cloth sides and leather spine label. The same cloth and spine label are used on the clamshell case which houses the book. Prospectus loosely inserted.

Text type: M & H Caslon, purchased for the project (for the Spanish accents). Titling type: a variety of Caslon. Handmade papers. Exposed spine binding with glass covers. Laid in cloth covered clamshell box with suede lining. Colophon: "Max Yela is Head of Special Collections at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Libraries. He is of Spanish and Guatemalan-Mexican descent, with a strain of Puerto Rican culture mixed in. La Bendición was told as an oral story for decades. When Caren Heft requested the story for the press in the mid-1990s, it proved particularly resistant to encoding. In 2005, Max recited an especially good rendition of the story to book artist and storyteller Leonard Seastone at the Artists' Book Conference in Wellesley, Massachusetts. Max determined to write the story as he told it to Seastone, and feverishly committed it to paper on the plane from Boston to Milwaukee." The sense of cobbled elegance in this presentation, which combines various handmade papers and inclusions along with Yela's story, pays proper homage to the matriarch of Max Yela's family, his grandmother ?- Herminia Rodriguez Sanchez (1898-1970).

IParaphrased excerpts from the Introduction: The Old Testament writings are longer and more complex than the New Testament. Therefore, this version of the Bible is divided into five books and an introduction. The aim is to simplify, in theory, reading it.Volumes: Introduction to the Holy Bible; I The Law - The Pentateuch - Genesis through Deuteronomy; II Historical Books - Joshua through Esther; III Poetry Books - Job through Song of Solomon; IV Prophecy books - Isaiah through Malachi; VNew Testament - Matthew through Revelation.There is an index in the Introduction that helps in navigating . The pages in each volume are numbered in two ways: the first number indicates the page within the volume, the second the page within the section of work (Introduction, New Testament, Old Testament).Brief review: The books of the Bible were not written at the same time nor are they representative of the same historical era . Between Genesis and Revelation there are an estimated 14 centuries and more than 50 authors.When these books were written they were not divided into chapters and verses. These mechanisms were introduced in the Middle Ages. It is estimated that chapters were introduced around 1226 and chapters were divided into sections in the thirteenth century. In 1558 an Italian monk divided the chapters into sentences forming verses. Also a concordance was generated and printed.

        Spix's Macaw

      Freeville, New York:: Lilliput Press,, 2008.. Edition of 7. Assemblage housed in 8 x 10 x 4" painted wooden box. Materials include a used picture frame, paper cut-outs of Macaws, glass bottles containing an assortment of found and collected items including birdseed, parakeet feathers, nuts, dried moss, remaindered book, paint, thread, ribbon. Carol Schwartzott: "A modern curiosity cabinet, I like to think of it as a contemporary 'time machine' that visualizes the environment and habits of Spix's Macaw, an endangered and extinct in the wild bird." Techniques: Original maps and bird illustrations from the artist's personal collection of old books were scanned and printed on an Epson Photo 2000 using archival inks and paper. These scans were later hand-embellished using paint, colored pencils, graphite, and inks. Stencils are the artist's hand-cut original designs, printed using water based paints. Shelves and stops are constructed of archival foam core, covered first with japanese paper and recovered with a variety of printed and hand modified papers. The box houses two layers: above is the book [Spix's Macaw: The Race to Save the World's Rarest Bird by Toney Juniper (Atria Books, 2002)] and below the cabinet with contained ephemera and three-dimensional exhibit. This work originally created for a fund-raising auction. "Faces in the Wild is an annual artist auction aimed at raising awareness and funds for wildlife protection. When I came across Spix's Macaw I immediately thought of presenting this endangered species within a cabinet, a technique that I began using early on in my career as a book artist and continue to enjoy. I frequently find small stashes of interesting materials and am also the recipient of many delightful hand-me-down gifts from friends and very often they seem to find a use in my art. So, the Spix's Macaw project soon housed not only the remaindered book I found on , but a collection of molted feathers from a parakeet, nuts and seeds from some old pot-pouri, dried moss from last summer's flower arrangements, and any number of stencils and paper trimmings that I recycled from past projects." (five copies available)

        28 Characters, 4 Men, 10 Women, 5 Boys and 8 Girls.

      (N.p. 2008) - Small quarto. 32ff. One of five copies, signed by the artists. An artistic collaboration between noted bookbinder, typographer, and illustrator Eri Funazaki and Danny Flynn, a fellow typographer who also wrote the text. Each letter was printed using different wood and metal types, many of which were altered by the artists or specially created for the project. In this unusual alphabet book, tiny line drawings of people are scattered throughout the text, interacting with the large, colorful letters. Accenting designs are occasionally hand-tooled in gold and blind. Playing on the dual meaning of "characters," Flynn and Funazaki created personalities for all twenty-six letters of the alphabet and two punctuation marks: a female ampersand and a full stop "of undetermined gender." The characters are described in short, witty, often rhyming "living eulogies" that reveal their quirks and neuroses. In a playful, unconventional binding of navy blue, tan, and orange Harmatan goatskin that resembles a giant door hinge, with covers that rotate around a tube. The covers have inlays shaped to resemble the tops of screws. One hole is left open in the center of the front cover, revealing the gold tooling on the first page. Together with a bronze figure of Funazaki&#146;s "little man" character, which has appeared in several of her artists&#146; books, done in the style of the figures in the text. The "little man" is seated and holds the missing screw from the binding across his lap. The figure is intended to be set on the edge of the book as an integral part of the binding design. Extremely fine. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
