        Drawn Blank Series [Signed].

      Washington Green Fine art in association with Black Buffalo Artworks, Printed by GTZ Fine Art Editions, New York. 2008 - LIMITED EDITION COLLECTION by Bob Dylan. This is the Limited Edition Graphics Standard Box set, comprising ten fine gallery quality colour prints of Gilclee on Museum Etching 350gsm paper, each print SIGNED by the artist. One of 295 numbered sets (a few out of series proofs also exist but were not commercially released.) Image size 21.5 x 16 inches, paper size 27.5 x 22 inches. Each of the graphics is supplied in individual bespoke, hand-made presentation wallets, and are encased in a presentation box. With accompanying 'Drawn Blank' series paperwork. Absolutely fine/ as new. Dylan's autograph is notoriously difficult to obtain, and many secretarial examples and fakes abound- obviously these signatures are guaranteed as part of an official numbered release. Whilst travelling on tour between 1989 and 1992, Bob Dylan created a collection of drawings that were published in a book entitled 'Drawn Blank' in 1994. These expressive works capture Dylan's chance encounters and observations. The creation of these portraits, interiors, landscapes, still lifes, nudes and street scenes were done to "relax and refocus a restless mind". Following a major exhibition in London in 2008, the prints were offered for sale as both individual graphics, a portfolio of three, a medium box of six, a standard box of ten, or a deluxe set of twenty-nine images. All formats were quickly sold out- such was the popularity of this collection that is was re-printed in 2009 as individual prints or collected as a set of eight, and it was again reprinted individually in 2010. This is a rare opportunity to obtain one of the original and more substantial collections from 2008. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        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.

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.

        PRIVATE TYPECASTERS, PRESERVING THE CRAFT OF HOT-METAL TYPE INTO THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY

      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.

        La Bendición Translated by Rino Vaellaneda and Catherine Tagoe

      Stevens Point, Wisconsin:: Arcadian Press,, 2008.. Edition of 50. 7.5 x 7 x 1.5"; 40 pages. Text in English and Spanish. 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.
