        The Private Typecasters Preserving the Craft of Hot-Metal Type into the Twenty-first Century

      Newton, Pennsylvania:: Bird & Bull Press,, 2008.. Edition of 150. 8.75 x 13 x 1.75"; 101 pages. Printed on Zerkall book laid paper, Quarter bound in morocco with Japanese cloth sides. Housed in a cloth covered clamshell case. Henry Morris, Prospectus: "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. "Richard Hopkins and myself have gathered fifteen of these typecasters into the pages of this book. Here you'll see unknown type faces, ancient faces cast from 200 year old matrices, experimental faces, beautiful faces and a few not so beautiful. In addition to the alphabets each contributor has composed specimen pages showing his types in use. "The types shown in this book encompass a period of about 100 years. This was during the heyday of mechanical typecasting and letterpress printing in America. Some of these types represent ideas of style and design long since passed out of favor. They may seem dated, perhaps quaint, or even ugly to contemporary eyes. But they are a vital part of the history of printing and we think it is important to take note of, and document their existence. The contributors to this book are respectful stewards of these rapidly disappearing artifacts of the golden years of American typecasting and the letterpress process." Includes a two page dedication by Richard Hopkins to Paul Hayden Duensing (1929 - 2006); preface by Henry Morris; and introduction by Richard L. Hopkins Typecasters included are Michael R. Anderson; Michael Bixler; Dan Carr & Julia Ferrari; Phillip Driscoll; Richard L. Hopkins; Dan S. Jones; Scott King; Raymond Stanley Nelson, Jr.; Chris Paul; Edward Rayher; Jim Rimmer; Schuyler (Sky) Shipley; Jim & Franziska Walczak; and Gregory Jackson Walters.

      Jaguarlúna, SP, Brazil:: Lucila Machado Assumpção,, 2008.. One-of-a-Kind. Fan: 8 x .1.625 x .5"; 18 leaves (slats of the fan); thread binding with removable screw closure. Book: 3 x 2.625" closed; 12 pages; single-sided accordion contains photographs showing possible transformations of the fan. Acrylic paint. Fan slips into felt case with velcro closure. Bilingual text (Portuguese and English). By manipulating the fan in various ways (using the booklet as a guide) the arrayed slats present 12 transformations, each with differing words and images. For example, stacking the slats and spreading them reveals one transformation. Flipping the fan reveals a different set of words and a new image. Moving the screw, which acts as the fan's pivot, from one end to the other allows different possibilities. The words provide focus; the images provide focus and flare; the physical transformations provide (initial) frustration and (eventual) delight. An array of possibilities.

This is another paragraph Product Description: Introducing the luxurious limited edition Khaled Hosseini boxed set. Both bestselling novels are cloth-bound, numbered and signed by the author. In Hosseini's unforgettable debut novel, The Kite Runner, twelve-year-old Amir is desperate to win the local kite-fighting tournament and his loyal friend Hassan promises to help him. But neither of the boys can foresee what will happen to Hassan that afternoon, an event that is to shatter their lives. After the Russians invade and the family is forced to flee to America, Amir realises that one day he must return to an Afghanistan under Taliban rule to find the one thing that his new world cannot grant him: redemption. In his second novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns, Hosseini begins his story with Mariam, who is only fifteen when she is sent to Kabul to marry Rasheed. Nearly two decades later, a friendship grows between Mariam and a local teenager, Laila, as strong as the ties between mother and daughter. When the Taliban take over, life becomes a desperate struggle against starvation, brutality and fear. Yet love can move a person to act in unexpected ways, and lead them to overcome the most daunting obstacles with a startling heroism.

        Helvetica Poems

      London:: Victoria Bean ,, 2008.. Edition of 25. 6.5 x 8.875"; 9 leaves. Lenticular lithographic prints. Housed in black bookcloth covered box. Title in white on box spine.Victoria Bean: "A series of animated poems that can be read in any language. When held and tipped back each page changes from one typographic state to the other ..."Helvetica Poems consists of seven pages of large punctuation marks set in Helvetica 500 pt, that transform from one mark to another when you hold each individual page. One page changes from a full point to a comma, another from a less than sign to a more than sign. These lithographs have been printed using lenticular technology. "Like the other artists’ books I’ve done, this book is about reduction, as well as transformation. I’m always tackling the question of how much information you need to communicate within a book using its materials, binding methods, images, and text."Lest you think this is just a conceptual game, consider one reading (offered by the artist) of the poem that consists of a full stop [a period] changing to a comma: "definitely maybe." Consider the concision – and the depth – of that.

Handmade Magnani 160gsm paper dampened for printing on a Pratt-Albion handpress with Giovanni Mardersteig’s Dante types. The images are made from brass rules and other type decorations, with some handwork, especially with hand-wielded rollers, by the author. Binding and slipcases by Wolfgang Schaefer. Written, designed, printed & sewn by Alan Loney. Of the edition 26 of the 30 are lettered from A to Z and are for sale. Alan Loney: "I first encountered the pre-Socratic philosophers in Kathleen Freeman’s translation in the early 1960s. Since then I have been an avid reader of these early tough and insightful texts, altho I have never completed a course in reading ancient Greek. Subsequent translations by Guy Davenport, Charles Kahn, Kirk & Raven, T M Robinson, David Gallop, Brooks Haxton and Robert Bringhurst, among others, have continued to enliven my senses of the possible in thoughtful feeling in my own poetic life of the mind. The poems here are derived from several different translations of the pre-Socratics, with additions, omissions, alterations and even downright distortions by the author. While none of my speculations should be attributed to the translating poets and scholars, I nevertheless dedicate this book to them, for most of us know little of the beginnings of secular thought in the West without their labor. An earlier version of the poem was written in 1990 and published in Missing Parts (Hazard Press 1992).

        Volute

      Steamboat Springs, Colorado:: Laura Wait,, 2008.. Series of 9. 6.75 X 13.5"; 9 folds. Solar plate intaglio, collograph, handwriting, and painting. First printed with intaglio plates on an etching press, using Rives BFK paper with Graphic Chemical etching ink. Collographs and woodcuts of spirals and labyrinths were printed in color with Akua ink on top of the black. Acrylic paste painting and ink writing completed the pages. Bound in the drum leaf style. Woodcut stamped on the calf leather spine. Paste paper over boards made from the collographs from the book. Housed in a clamshell box with paste paper liners. Jill Bergman assisted with the printing, binding, and box-making. One in a series of nine unique books by Laura Wait celebrating the essential cyclical nature of art, agriculture, and the universe. Laura Wait: "Symbolism, mythology, and abstract geometry are the main intellectual content of my abstract paintings, prints and books. Words as image play an important part in all my work, acting as pattern, texture, and occasionally content. The diverse media I use is incorporated into my unique artist books, including prints which are often cut up and reformatted into parts of books. The books act as inspiration for the paintings and prints. The book pages sometimes act as studies for larger paintings….Recently, I have been inspired by nature, and the geometric forms man creates in the fields, as well as the detail and tangle of the grasses which remind me of writing and drawing." From the last page of Volute: "Time repeats itself in the rituals associated with spirals and labyrinths. Theses universal symbols of the earth and its cyclical seasons are found throughout history. Nature and mathematics also form many spiral shapes." We are reminded of the walls of Troy, Greek labyrinths, the Fibonacci sequence, Troy, Jericho, the rock carvings of Val Carmonica. The book inspires hyperbolic comparisons: If Blake could see the world in a grain of sand, Volute is like holding the time in your hand. (This is book number 2)

        The Burning of the Books A poem sequence by George Szirtes based on Elias Canetti's novel 'Auto da Fé' illustrated by Ron King.

      London :: Circle Press,, 2008.. Edition of 30. 10.25 x 14"; 15 etchings (13 full page, one double spread, and one quarter page. Text letterpressed printed in Walbaum type from polymer plates. Housed in solander box. Prospectus: "Back in 1971 Ron King at the press in Guildford tried to obtain permission from the publishers to illustrate Elias Canetti's great novel Auto da Fé. Permission was denied to him, as to all others who had requested it, as the author did not wish his work to be illustrated or made into a play or film. In 1981 the novel won Canetti the Nobel prize for literature but still the writer would not release his tight grip on the copyright. Canetti died in 1994 and ten years later King took it on himself to persuade George Szirtes winner of the Eliot prize for poetry 2004, to make a book with him on the theme of Auto da Fé. Within a short time poem after poem of a powerful sequence directly related to or inspired by his re-reading of the book, the poems living as it were, in the crevices of Canetti's text, arrived at the press from Szirtes." George Szirtes, Introduction: "The sequence is titled 'The Burning of the Books' since that is what happens at the end of Auto da Fé. The scholar's library burns in anticipation of the Nazi book-burnings to come. The poems are fuel for King's visual symbiotic-organisms, joining them in a mutual homage-cum-conflagration.

        Wall

      London, England:: Ken Campbell,, 2008.. Edition of 29 plus 1 AP. 13 x 13 x 2"; 110 pages. Polychrome digital printing on 216 gsm Hahnemühle Art Duo paper. Single leaves, attached in pairs in a split guard system, conventionally bound with a loose spine in undyed fair goatskin over board. The cover is embossed front and back. Ken Campbell: "The book is the consequence of a journey from letterpress printing to digital inkjet. 12 pt lead rules were cut and mitred to give letterpress depictions of the walls of a castle or city. The rules were also manipulated digitally to give further wall imagery. Some of the lead quads or furniture that sit below the printing surface and helped support these rules in the press were photographed, and processed into digital images. "750 x 510 mm sheets of paper were folded into signatures and printed on all four sides by letterpress and inkjet processes. As well as the images mentioned above were many others including photographs of walls, a Mid West Lutheran log church, and a face apparently attempting to pass through both a membrane and a wall of rock. "These folded signatures were then held up to intense tungsten light and photographed both back and front. This procedure supplied four layers of imagery overlaying each other with differing degrees of focus. The photographs were then much reduced and, in their pairs as front and back of the original signatures, printed off centre of the pages of the book proper. "The book carries two short texts. One describes a day in the life of Dorothy, my grandchild, and her mother, my daughter Esther; written by the latter. The other, written by me, describes a dream of age and rebirth. "Walls protect, walls constrain, and walls sometimes get run into. Five years ago I started this book, calling it 'wall', knowing that I was going to hit it. Hopefully, by running at the page, it has been passed through." Nancy Campbell, Printmaking Today, London, 2008: "The inkjet process requires a different aesthetic to letterpress. In the past Ken Campbell has drawn as many tones out of black as John Cage did from silence, but here the tar-like, multi-layered inking is gone. Bruised blues and ochres and delicate greys suggest colours already seen across time. Photographed through paper and reduced in scale, the prints have a ghostly quality. In a culture where the hand-made object is fetishised, this laborious production of a letterpress image only to reproduce it digitally is impertinent, unsettling and powerful. "The arduous production process offers a window onto the work's concern with endurance and crossing physical boundaries. On either side of the central 'letterpress' section are single pages of prose which provide an austere textual element to the book. ... "The most significant wall in the book is created from hand-set metal quads. These small blocks, which surround and control type in the chase, lie low, evade ink and therefore determine the white space of the page. Usually invisible to the reader of printed matter, here the printer's 'block' is revealed close-up in a series of photographs. The quads, set without type, appear huge, reminiscent of the barriers seen in reportage of world conflicts. In one photograph from the series, a ladder-shaped pattern of freshly-cast rule rises type-high from quads that are darkened by years of contact with ink and solvents. The image suggests hope: the act of printing may be a means to overcome boundaries.

        Appetite for Spectacle

      [Philadelphia]:: [Book Arts Discussion Group],, 2008.. Edition of 12. 6 items: 5 handmade books and a phenakistoscope housed in heavy cardstock box (10.75" square) with attached lid. Paper title on lid. These pieces were created in response to Rebecca Solnit's River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West and the salons the artists held over the course of 2008 to discuss Muybridge, Solnit, time, fine wine, and death. Changing Skies by Katie Murken [Philadelphia]:Get Dressed Press, 2008. 3.5 x 2.5"; 50 pages. Perfect bound. Colophon: "This book documents Katie's walk through a South Philadelphia neighborhood, and focuses on the debris that gathers around stoops, curbs, and cars. The text is quoted from Rebecca Solnit's book River of Shadows, the story of Eadweard Muybridge and the perceptual revolution of the 19th Century." Conversations Out of Time by Mary Tasillo. [Philadelphia]: cake & pie press, 2008. Edition of 12. 8.5 x 8.5"; 22 pages. Printed using an Epson Photo 870 on commercial cotton paper. Perfect bound in green paper covers. Statement: "Mary always wonders what her fifteen-year-old self would think of what she is up to today. This limited edition book is inkjet printed and bound with colored staples. While Mary was 28 when she wrote this book, it is unclear exactly how old she was when the book was bound." The Dream of Flying by Elysa Voshell. [Philadelphia]: Elysa Voshell, 2008. Edition of 25. 2.75 x 4.5" closed; 15 pages. Carousel structure. Letterpress, screenprinting, and polaroid emulsion transfer. Brown cloth-covered boards with magnet closure. Statement: "The Dream of Flying takes its inspiration from three strands of Eadweard Muybridge's photographic work: his cloud studies, his motion studies, and his panoramas of San Francisco. Like the early motion studies, this book uses a combination of new technologies and the recently outmoded. In Muybridge's case, his use of wet-plate photograph was eclipsed by the introduction of dry-plate negatives: here, a digitally captured photograph is printed using Polaroid film, which has recently been discontinued, in large part due to the overwhelming shift to digital." Colophon: "One of the books is open, revealing a few panels of a Muybridge motion study. The photographs lie in the painting like a virus in the body, a virus that would change the nature of the visible." (Rebecca Solnit, River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West) In Flight: Phenakistoscope by Julianna Foster. [Philadelphia]: Julianna Foster, [2008]. 10" circular phenakistoscope with 6" wooden dowel. Housed in 10.5 x 10.5" black envelope with instruction label tipped on envelope flap. Statement: "The Phenakistoscope, which also means 'deceptive view,' is a disc with slots around the edge and drawings between these slots, which is spun on an axle in front of a mirror. Sequential images are arranged on one side of the disc, and the viewer looks through the slots at the reflections of the images in the mirror and sees the still images move in succession. The eye retains an image after it flashes by, similar to how we see film, in that it takes 24 frames to make up 1 second of a moving images. This phenomenon is called persistence of vision." A Slow Motion of Parades Passing and Buildings Rising by Katie Baldwin. [Philadelphia]: Queen Anne's Revenge Press, 2008. Edition of 12. 13.8 x 13.75" sheet folded. Laid in 8.5 x 7" heavy cardstock boards with tile on front cover and ribbon closures. Illustrations screen printed. Colophon on back cover. Statement: "...Muybridge's work, it was a world of processes again, for one picture showed a a horse, but six pictures showed an act, a motion, an event. The subject of the pictures was not the image per se but the change from one to another, the change that represented time and motion more vividly, more urgently than the slow motion of parades passing and buildings rising." —Solnit, 194 Time as a Toy in Men's Hands by Tara O'Brien. Philadelphia: Tara O'Brien, 2008. Edition of 25. 3.5" rotating paper ring. Printed on photo quality ink jet paper on an Epson 1900 with archival inks. Housed in 3.75 x 3.75 x 1.9" paper box. Colophon: "The desire to control time is not a 21st century concept. To contemporaries of Muybridge, it would appear he was successful. By running moving images forward and backwards, audiences were shocked and surprised to see, for example, a wall being built and then dismantled. In our continued quest to harness time, those who can afford it attempt to erase the evidence of the passage of time on their person." (Last Copy)

        BOMB a poem

      London:: Kamikaze Press,, 2008.. Edition of 100. 11 x 14"; 24 pages. Letterpress with Baskerville type and various wood typefaces. Images composed from reduction woodblocks, woodcuts, and circular saw blades. Printed on Heritage 200 gsm (white) hand-wiped in an olive drab grey, 160 gsm (Bookwhite) and Diamant Transprint 170 gsm. Case bound in a slipcase and embossed in red metallic. Kamikaze Press: "Bomb was written by Gregory Corso in 1958 whilst residing at the infamous 'Beat Hotel' at 9 Rue Git-le-Coeur in the Latin Quarter of Paris. Later that year this controversial poem was published by City Lights Books in San Francisco. It was originally designed as a 'concrete' poem and typeset in the shape of an exploding mushroom cloud. It has been described as an iconoclastic love song dedicated to the destructive power of a weapon of mass destruction, a heart felt homage to the terror of the H-bomb. "The Kamikaze Press has reproduced this epic poem to mark the fiftieth anniversary of its first publication. Over these years metaphors of fear have shifted and images of prevailing carnage have become increasingly distorted and sinister. However the sentiment behind Gregory Corso's ironic message remains remarkably pertinent half a century later. The book concludes with Corso's self-penned epitaph.

        Nelson & Emma: Aphrodite & Ares Contemplate Admiral Nelson & Lady Hamilton

      San Francisco, California:: Pacific Editions,, 2008.. Edition of 35. 10.5 x 11.5 x 1"; 41 pages. Text and design by Charles Hobson. Frontispiece of two-layer monotype portraits of Admiral Nelson and Emma Hamilton which have been reproduced as high resolution digital prints on transparent film. The cover and slipcase have been covered in mouldmade paper called Canal made in Quebec that has been embossed with a pattern of netting for the slipcase. Book with five signatures called "intermezzos" attached to a concertina spine. Each intermezzo has a unique abstract acrylic painting on paper; an image of an historic sea battle printed on transparent film; a Renaissance-era painting of Aphrodite colored with acrylic wash; and a page with cutout windows. Includes a pop-up square-rigged vessel containing the images of Admiral Nelson and Aphrodite. Prospectus: "In 1798 Admiral Nelson led a fleet of British warships against the French at the mouth of the Nile and achieved a spectacular victory. Several weeks later he sailed into Naples harbor and was greeted with a huge celebration and the rapturous admiration of the citizens, including Lady Emma Hamilton, the young British Ambassador's beautiful young wife. They soon became lovers. "In Greek mythology Aphrodite, goddess of love, and Ares, god of war, had a tempestuous affair, which resulted in ridicule and embarrassment. Nelson & Emma records an imaginary conversation between Aphrodite and Ares about the admiral and the ambassador's wife, mortals who seem to embody the qualities of love and war that are the special purview of the two gods. As the conversation between the two gods proceeds they pull strings that lead to a net of disapproval and scandal being thrown over Nelson and Emma. "At the heart of the design of Nelson & Emma is an intention to show alternative perspectives about the events that transpired and to give life to the odd coincidence that love and war are tied closely together in both the affairs of the gods and the affairs of mortals. "The cover contains a lenticular photograph of an age-of-sail battle scene combined with a painting of Aphrodite by Titian. The goddess looms over the battle. (A lenticular photograph contains two images on beveled horizontal indentations which allows the viewer to tilt the book and shift between the two images.) The slipcase has been made with paper embossed with netting a reference to the net which ensnares Aphrodite and Ares and which, metaphorically, falls over Nelson and Emma.
