        Mothers and Children.

      [Sacramento, CA] 2008 - Artist's book, one of 4 copies only, each containing a suite of 10 silver gelatin prints, the prints on doubleweight fiber base Bergger developing out paper, as well as a commentary of about 1000 words, printed on Mohawk Superfine paper, both the photographs and commentary by William T. Vollmann. Each print is signed and numbered in pencil on the reverse by the artist / author. The original text written by the author / artist for this portfolio, is printed letterpress, and signed by him on the Colophon. Page size: 16 x 20-1/8 inches (matted photographs) and 8-1/2 x 11 inches (text and captions) totalling 17pp.which includes the titlepage, 10 gelatin prints, colophon, and five pages of captions housed in envelope on inside back over of clamshell box. The titlepage is hand-lettered by Mr. Vollmann. The colophon / artist's statement plus 5 pages of captions, one for each image, are printed letterpress by David Ward of The Applecart Press, Brunswick, Maine. Bound: loose as issued in custom-made grey cloth clamshell box, with hand painted and lettered label by William Vollmann on the front panel and another label on the spine with the title only in Mr. Vollmann's hand. The box is lined with light and a darker mauve paper, the darker mauve paper forming the envelope on the inside back cover holding the Colophon and Captions. Each of the ten 11 x 14 inch silver gelatin prints is matted to a size of 16 x 20-1/8 inches. The original 35 mm negatives were shot by Mr. Vollmann but commercially developed at various labs in and out of the United States. Mr. Vollmann used Contax T2 cameras to capture the images and made these prints on his Leitz Focomat IC enlarger. The artist / author has provided some cross-references as to images other appearances, if they exist, in his captions. He notes that it never occurred to him to assemble a portfolio on the topic of MOTHERS AND CHILDREN. He adds that when the earliest of these images was taken (2005) the topic would have struck him as "suspect and sentimental. But the gazes of the mothers and children in these images had already haunted me for themselves, and once I finally noticed their commonality, they became something more to me than they already were." Indeed, these images of women and children, representing disparate nationalities and ethnic groups, seem more potent because of the cross-section of humanity represented. They are not sentimental in the least; rather, they are full of dignity. Some appear gentle, some proud and fierce. All have the power to touch the viewer. See an Image.

        Charles Bukowski Ten Times: Nine Photographs by Tim Petros

      Los Angeles: Delongpre Press, 2008. First printing. Charles Bukowski Ten Times: Nine Photographs by Tim Petros. Fine; 10 loose photographs in a black linen custom clamshell case. From an edition of ten, plus two artists proofs, this being copy number 3. Signed by the photographer on the limitation page. Print size 11 x 14, image size 6 x 8 3/4 inches. Archival ink jet prints on Crane Silver Rag paper. In 1981 Petros, a staff photographer for a Los Angeles area magazine, was assigned to photograph Bukowski at his San Pedro home. A small number of the photographs were published but many have never been seen. The photographs are remarkably different from the vast majority of those taken by Michael Monfort, Bukowski's semi-official photographer, and allow an unusually intimate look at a relaxed Bukowski enjoying the moment. Quite a production, with crisp and detailed photographs and high production standards. Very, very nice, in a smalll edition. At the list price.

        Michigan Law Review. Vols. 80 to 106, in 108 books (1981-2008)

      2008. Michigan Law Review. Ann Arbor, Michigan: Michigan Law Review Association. Vols. 80 to 106 (1981-2008). Vols. 80 to 100 black library binding in 58 books; vols. 100 no. 7 to 106 in 50 unbound issues. Ex-library, very good condition. * Founded in 1902, the Review is the sixth oldest legal journal in the country. It was originally was intended as a forum in which the faculty of the Law Department could publish its legal scholarship. The faculty resolution creating the Review required every faculty member to submit two articles per year to the new journal. From its inception until 1940, the Review's student members worked under the direction of faculty members who served as Editor-in-Chief. In 1940, the first student Editor-in-Chief was selected. During the years that followed, student editors were given increasing responsibility and autonomy. Today, the Review is run with no faculty supervision. Seven of each volume's eight issues ordinarily are composed of two major parts: Articles by legal scholars and practitioners and Notes written by the student editors. One issue in each volume is devoted to book reviews. Occasionally special issues are devoted to symposia or colloquia.

        Remember the Ladies

      [Whidbey Island], WA. 2008]. Artist&#39;s book, one of 10 copies only, each hand numbered and signed on the colophon page by the artist / author, Sande Wascher-James. Book size: 4 x 10 inches; page size: 4 x 6 inches; 108pp. Bound by the artist: pink flowered Liberty Lawn fabric over boards, with portrait of Abigail Adams in grey on specially prepared fabric that is archivally sound, collaged and stitched on front and back panels at foredge, her famous admonition to her husband, John, "Remember the Ladies..." hand printed with a Gocco on white ribbon and collaged and stitched to other edge of front and back panels. Each page is a different colored Liberty Lawn fabric that is bordered in embroidery thread. Sitting one atop another, within the chintz frame, the text block forms solid bands of color going from black, red, green, yellow, purple blue back to purple, green blue and black. The book can be opened and read as a conventional text. It also can be displayed as a "book object" when stood on its "spine" and the pages fall open as a fan. Housed in a custom-made box with drop-down front edge and lift-off cover, all in Liberty Lawn fabric of red roses on white ground, portrait of Abigail Adams digitally printed in grey, collaged and stitched to the top of the box lid with her quotation, "Remember the Ladies..." hand printed in black with Gocco on white fabric and stitched in white thread to the top of the lid, new. Each page contains postage stamps of famous American women that have been digitally printed onto specially prepared, archivally sound fabric and collaged and stitched onto the chintz grounds, with lines of text, hand and printed with a Gocco on white ribbon in black and collaged onto the page, as have bits of lace, sequins, and other fabrics, as well as additional copies of the stamp on different fabrics, in various sizes and placement. Among the women honored are Georgia O&#39;Keefe, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Carrie Chapman Catt, Frances Perkins, Patricia Harris, Rosa Ponselle, Mahalia Jackson, Dorothea Dix, Elizabeth Blackwell, Jacqueline Cochrine, Babe Zaharias, Mary Cassatt, Elizabeth Wrightman, Harriet Tubman, Ruth Benedict, Sacagawea, Margaret Mitchell, Ida B. Wells, Alice Paul, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rachel Carson, Sojourner Truth, Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan, and Louise Nevelson. _The Adams quotation reads, "Remember the Ladies, and be more generous and favourable to them than your ancestors. Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the Husbands...If perticulair (sic) care and attention is not paid to the Laidies we are determined to foment a Rebelion, and will not hold ourselves by any Laws in which we have no voice, or Representation."& Abigail Adams&#39; sentiment was eloquently elaborated upon by Elizabeth Cady Stanton in her statement before Congress, THE SOLITUDE OF SELF, and which stands as a philosophic cornerstone of American women&#39;s rights. The founding fathers may not have remembered the ladies, but "the ladies" took it upon themselves to change their lives, and the lives of others. Each of the women honored herein did "foment a Rebelion" in their own field, forever changing and re- defining the American life. This is a beautiful homage to "the Ladies." <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10177.jpg >Image.</A><br>
