        Remember the Ladies.

      [Whidbey Island], WA 2008 - Artist'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'Keefe, Susan 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' 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'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." See an Image.

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

      Bird & Bull Press, Newtown, PA 2008 - 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 Civilit? 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. quarter morocco with Japanese cloth sides, leather spine label [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Pretend You&#39;re Actually Alive

      New York: PPP/Andrew Roth, 2008. New York: PPP/Andrew Roth, 2008. First Edition. Softcover.. Near Fine/Near Fine. 4to. Unpaginated (ca 200pp). Printed wraps in chipboard slipcase with wraparound. Edition of 1000 copies. Numerous Colour plates. More images available on request. Rough and raw. Leigh LedareÕs Pretend YouÕre Actually Alive is an uncompromisingly intimate portrait of his mother, of complex and unconventional family relationships, sexuality, and agingÑa raw and starkly revealing collaboration between mother and son. Ledare has created a provocative body of work that veers from maternal tenderness to pornographic performance, and a family album that sits somewhere between theatre and document.& & In describing his motherÕs sexuality, Ledare writes, ÒShielding herself from her own sense of aging; attempting to trade on her beauty before her looks waned; procuring an intimacy with me, often through a substitute figure; laying claim to posterity; and in a very poignant way as an attempt to undermine her fatherÕs expectations on her, both as his daughter and as the mother of me and my brother. She had never wanted to be normal.Ó& & Tina Peterson, a former ballerina prodigy turned professional stripper, uses her overtly sexualized identity as an uncompromising display performed daily in front of her sonÕs curious lens. As she poses draped in lace, revealing her genitalia to the camera, we are witness to a woman determined to retain the attributes of youth and beauty, whilst renewing and reinventing her identity behind a sexualized fa&#141;ade.& & Pretend YouÕre Actually Alive is a brutal revelation. Unlike similar photographic journals produced by artists such as Richard Billingham or Nan Goldin, the power of this work is in the collaboration. Petersen is more than LedareÕs muse; she is her sonÕs co-conspirator. Beyond the Oedipal connotations, sexual taboos and narcissism, it would be difficult to imagine a more complex portrait of sexuality. (from Claxton Projects)

        The Tales of Beedle the Bard (Signed First Edition)

      New York: Children's High Level Group / Arthur A. Levine Books, 2008. New York: Children&#39;s High Level Group / Arthur A. Levine Books, 2008. First American trade edition. Fine. A Fine copy in the publisher&#39;s original illustrated boards. Slightest pushing to the spine ends, otherwise unworn. No dust jacket, as issued. Signed by the author on the half-title and with the security hologram present. After the success of the Harry Potter series, Rowling created this spin-off work of short stories, including "The Tale of the Three Brothers" which figures prominently in the plot of "The Deathly Hallows" as well as four other short tales. The author originally created seven handwritten manuscripts in 2007 as gifts for the people associated with the series, auctioning one off for charity (it brought 1.95 million pounds). The following year it was published and released in this edition and in a deluxe edition. However, unlike previous releases, there was only one signing event for this book, at the National Library of Scotland for a group of around 200 children, ages 8 - 11, selected through a lottery. Fine.

      Paderborn: Schöningh 2008.. 2226 S., 2680 Strichzeichn., 815 Halbtonabb., 28 Abb. auf 24 Farbtaf., 88 Strichtaf. (Epi- u. ikonograph. Befund), 43 Pläne (Architektur) im Schuber. *verlagsneu* In den Jahren 1959-1984 hat der verstorbene Bonner Emeritus für Ägyptologie Prof. Dr. Elmar Edel in über 20 Feldkampagnen einen Großteil der Felsgräbernekropole der Qubbet el-Hawa (Aswan) an der Grenze von Oberägypten zu Nubien freigelegt und dokumentiert. Es handelt sich dabei um die Begräbnisstätten der lokalen Elite aus dem Ende des Alten Reiches (ca. 2300 v. Chr.). Deren Hauptaufgabe bestand in der Ausführung und Kontrolle des Afrikahandels mittels mehrmonatiger Expeditionszüge in das umgebende Ausland (Sudan, Rotmeerküsten, aber auch Levante). Dementsprechend manifestieren sich in der Architektur, der Dekorationen (Bild und Text) sowie in den Beigaben der Grabanlagen nicht nur lokale Begräbnissitten, sondern auch die Aneignung des kulturspezifischen Welt- und Jenseitsbildes in selten reicher und gut erhaltener Form. Dazu wird in dieser Quellenpublikation das Material zum größten Teil als kommentierte editio princeps vorgelegt..

        Gebetbuch für Kardinal Albrecht von Brandenburg. Gabriel Glockendon. Nürnberg 1536/37. Codex 1847 der Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek Wien. [Samt Kommentarband]: Dagmar Thoss: Kommentarband zum Gebetbuch für Kardinal Albrecht von Brandenburg.

      Münster: Bibliotheca Rara 2008.. Faksimileband: 103 Blätter (100 davon foliiert); Kommentarband: 61 (1) Seiten mit 36 Abbildungen. Gr. 8° (24,5 x 20 cm). Faksimilierter Lederband auf fünf (unechten) Bünden mit zwei roten Rückenschildern, goldgeprägtem Supralibros sowie reicher, ornamentaler Rückenvergoldung und rot eingefärbten Schnitten. Kommentarband: Leinenband mit goldgeprägtem Titel auf Deckel und Rücken. Beide Bände im braunen, leinenbezogenen Schuber.. Prachtvolle und aufwendig im Stil der Zeit gestaltete, limitierte Faksimile-Ausgabe. Erschienen in nur 998 von Hand nummerierten Exemplaren. Dieses Exemplar trägt die handschriftlich eingetragene Nummer 108. Das hier als Faksimile herausgegebene Gebetbuch wurde seinerzeit von Kardinal Albrecht von Brandenburg (1490-1545) in Auftrag gegeben und 1537 fertiggestellt. Die in deutscher Sprache verfasste Handschrift gehört zu einer Gruppe von insgesamt drei Gebetbüchern, die der bedeutende Kunstmäzen führenden Künstlern des Metiers zur Ausstattung übertragen hatte. Sie "repräsentiert einen relativ jungen Typus im Bereich des für Laien konzipierten Andachtsbuches, der in dieser Form erst in der ersten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts und nur im deutschsprachigen Raum in Erscheinung tritt. Gleichwohl ruht seine Konzeption auf einem Werk des 15. Jahrhunderts", bei welchem "Thomas a Kempis, der führende Vertreter der als devotio moderna bezeichneten Frömmigkeitsbewegung, als Autor des Textes namhaft gemacht werden [konnte]." (Dagmar Thoss, Kommentarband, S. 11.). Die 42 ganzseitigen Miniaturen zu Szenen aus dem Neuen Testament stammen vom Nürnberger Buchmaler Gabriel Glockendon, einem der Söhne des Nikolaus Glockendon, welcher das Gewerbe der Nürnberger Buchmalerzunft seinerzeit dominierte. Der Text, das dekorative Randdekor und die zierenden Bordüren stammen von Georg Stierlein. Zu Beginn des 17. Jahrhunderts gelangte die Handschrift als Schenkung in den Besitz Kaiser Ferdinands II. und somit Eingang in die Kaiserliche Hofbibliothek. Der spätere, in vorliegender Ausgabe hervorragend nachempfundene Einband ist signiert und datiert: Braunes Kalbsleder mit dem Doppeladler, Monogramm der Hofbibliothek und dem Monogramm des damaligen Präfekten Gerard Freiherr van Swieten (1745-1772): E.A.B.C.V. = Ex Augustissima Bibliotheca Caesarea Vindobonensi / G.L.B.V.S.B. = Gerardus Liber Baro Van Swieten Bibliothecarius / 1755. - Exemplar in tadellosem Zustand. - Faksimileband mit fundiertem Kommentarband im Schuber.

"Christopher Wool became known in the mid-1980s through paintings produced with rubber rollers commonly used to simulate decorative wallpaper patterns on walls. By 1988 he had hit stride with his dry, dead-pan word paintings while continuing to explore the possibilities of pattern painting. Since the 1990s, he has been developing the painterly qualities of his work, using a mostly black-and-white palette, starting from abstract lines drawn with a spray gun or layered stock images, overpainting silkscreens on linen, wiping out images, with a widening variety of media, a process that can involve photography, silkscreen, and, in the new millennium, also the computer. This monograph is staggering in scope and depth, exploring Wool&#146;s work in large-scale reproductions, production Polaroids, and installation photos by Wool himself".

        Drawings by Austin Osman Spare for V.S.W./ Poems and Masks,/Poetry and Art (Three Complementary Volumes, Signed)

      London: Mandrake Press Ltd. / I.H.O. books, 2008. London: Mandrake Press Ltd. / I.H.O. books, 2008. A Fine, three volume set, issued in a limited edition of only 59 numbered copies. Laid in is an original handwritten letter from Wainwright to Spare, and also a cheque signed by Spare. Each of the three volumes contain a numbered, limitations bookplate. From the Publisher: "These hardbacks landscape format, 8.5 ins x 12ins. Sheets are 120 gramme watermarked goatskin parchment paper. All three books are uniformly bound in black faux leather elegantly blind stamped with distinctly Sparean profile of face towards for edge of both front and back board. Place ribbon. The binding method used is innovative and is noted for its tremendous strength: the leaves being both gripped and glued in place. It is quite impossible to remove a page; the paper would tear long before the binding compromised. The three volumes are complementary and the publisher, has avoided imposing arbitrary numbers upon the volumes. So, in no particular order:-Drawings by Austin Osman Spare for V.S.W.,  A drawing book of 24 images drawn by Spare for Vera in 1944 when Spare visited her in Helston, Cornwall. The title page has a image by Spare of his (horned) head merging upwards into a profile of Vera Wainwright. The original  cover of the drawing book carrying Spare's inscription to Wainwright is also reproduced. These drawings have only previously been published in an edition of 24 portfolio folders, each one containing one of the original drawings. The closing pages provide brief biographies of Spare and Wainwright. The last two pages presents a speculation concerning numerical analysis of  Spare's work and the significance of the word "One" and the point within in the circle in relation to Spare's work and philosophy. Poems and Masks. 44pp An illustrated 5pp article by Eileen White describes Wainwright from the point of view of someone living in the village of Mappowder in Dorset where she lived the last years of her life. Whilst aware of her literary connections with the Powys family what emerges is a vibrant picture of the woman herself by someone who came to know her well. Poems and masks was initially published by the Toucan Press in 1968, the same Channel Island publisher which issued Gull's Beack and Black to Black by Kenneth Grant. The biographical note and introduction to this edition plus that of the second US edition are reproduced as are the poems plus 8 additional ones, previously unpublished. Spare's illustrations are reproduced together with other relevant vignettes and illustrations, though the original illustrations are carefully identified thus. Poetry and Art, 80pp. A 2pp illustrated article discusses Spare's use of the mask icon in his philosophy whilst further testament to its significance in Spare's circle is here testified to by the inclusion of a short story by Frederick Carter edited and provided an introduction for Spare's Focus of Life. The story, illustrated with vignettes of Spare's use of masks in his art. A yarn of an artistic genius who moves from wax work faces to major art fraud revealing occult mysteries relating to Rosicrucianism and Shakespeare. Spare and Wainwright planned to publish together a monthly magazine to be called "Art and Letter". Spare's design for a title page including hoped for contributors is reproduced plus some relevant letters from Wainwright to Spare. Then follow 8 short stories by Wainwright; some are very short indeed, literary vignettes really. These are far more explicitly occult than her poems. They are by no means cosy with two describing the perception of indescribably horror. In another an enigmatic stranger proves to be a nature spirit. Suitable illustrations supplied by Spare to Wainwright including a very fine satyr's head. One drawing featuring a wrecked cart axle forming a crucifix with a tree with a crow torn to pieces in the foreground explicitly illustrates the last story presented "Corporate Worship". In this enigmatic tale the narrator eschews prayer in church to worship in nature only to find the vicar, who is also some form of animal spirit, leading her in prayer there. One feels such ambiguity lies at the heart of Wainwright's approach. She also perceived ambiguity in Spare himself. In one letter to him she said "... I conclude that you are on the threshold of sainthood but have not yet crossed it! You still face darkness often, but you could turn towards he light - as it is there at your elbow. You could be quite a wonderful person, but to change a metaphor - there is still a little devil at your coat-tail! A further section reproduces Spare's drafts for Poems and Masks. Mostly very rough but with some striking, quite finished, faces that were not used, despite them being far more married to the text than those that were. Wainwright was not without artistic ability herself and four pictures by her of the Devon and Cornwall countryside are included plus some contemporary images of the village in Cornwall where Spare visited her. 7pp reproduce drawings with notes that Spare gave to Wainwright which are instructive concerning his composition of pictures, the use of exaggerated perspective akin to his sidereal portraits"..
