        Flowerball Cosmos (3D)

      - offset lithograph, 2008, signed and numbered from the edition of 300, Publisher Kaikai Kiki Ltd., Tokyo. 71 x 71cm diameter Takashi Murakami is a Japanese artist combining the fine and the commercial art worlds. Often categorized alongside artists working within the tradition of Pop Art, such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, and Jeff Koons, Murakami's work has achieved a widespread level of fame beyond the art world. His innovative "Superflat" aesthetic—combining classical Japanese art with contemporary Japanese pop culture—has made him one of the most innovative artists working today. He continues to explore the links between traditional printmaking and Japanese styles of comics in post-war society in his highly graphic, vibrantly colored works. Despite its outward playfulness, Murakami's art acts as a cultural critique with subversive undertones hidden in its imagery. Born on February 1, 1962 in Tokyo, Japan, where he currently lives and works, Murakami has embraced commerce through the founding Kaikai Kiki Co., Ltd., an artist management agency and studio. With his popular collaboration with the fashion label Louis Vuitton, Murakami has established himself as a pioneer of promoting art as a brand. His work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions around the world, include those held at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Gagosian Gallery in London, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, and the Versailles Palace.

        Map of Nowhere

      2008 - Single etching from 5 plates on 1 sheet. Edition of 68. Each print signed by the artist and numbered on the reverse, 152.9 x 113 cm 'The starting point for this print was Thomas More's Utopia. Utopia is a pun on the Greek ou topos meaning 'no place'. 'I was playing with the idea of there being no Heaven. People are very wedded to the idea of a neat ending: our rational brains would love to tidy up the mess of the world and to have either Armageddon or Heaven at the end of our existence. But life doesn't work like that - it's a continuum.' [1] Prints are no secondary art form for Grayson Perry, they are considered, large-scale final pieces. A vocal advocate of therapy and analysis, in the Map of Nowhere Perry explores his own belief system; His opinions contend with those he finds crowding around him in wider society. The print's grand proportions encompass the artist's taste for niggling detail. Perry started the drawing in the top left-hand corner, and worked towards the bottom right-hand corner, without planning the in-between; instead ideas were allowed to emerge, leading from one to another, through the drawing process. As also seen in his subsequent major etchings, Map of an Englishman (2004) or his 'playscape', Print for a Politician (2005), Perry prefers to leave ink on the plate during the printing process; he avoids creating too crisp an image in order to evoke an antique look. Perry is yoking his map to its historical pedigree. With this etching, Perry is working from a big historical model rather than one from fine art: the medieval mappa mundi (map of the world) provides a recognisable template. As pre-Columbian diagrams, they would illustrate a sum of knowledge, acting as both instructive and decorative objects, making connections vivid and comprehensible. The Map of Nowhereis based on a famous German example, the Ebstorf Map, which was destroyed in the Second World War. It showed Jesus as the body of the world, with his head, hands and feet marking four equidistant points around the circle. Perry spikes the tradition with contemporary social comment. Within a circular scheme, like the Ebstorf Map, or the existent Hereford Mappa Mundi, he presents a flattened-out analysis of his world - from jibes about current affairs to the touchstones of his personal life. Where the Ebstorf Map has the world unfolding around Jerusalem, Perry's personal world view encompasses a cacophony of ideas and preoccupations, with 'Doubt' right at the centre. The artist's alter ego Claire gets a sainthood, while people pray at the churches of global corporations: Microsoft, Starbucks, Tescoes. Tabloid cliches abound, each attached to a figure or building: 'the new black', 'kidults', 'binge drinking', having-it-all'. Top right, the 'free-market-economy' floats untethered, preempting the credit crunch that was to take hold in the autumn of 2008. All-over labels demand that the map is read - or quizzed - close up. This is a clearly articulated satire, and while Perry adopts a medieval confusion of scale and proportion, the diagrammatic style is as adamant as its religious forerunners. Beneath, there is a drawing of figures on a pilgrimage, set in a realistic landscape. They are at final staging post before making their way up to a monastery at the top of a mountain beyond, which is hit by a beam of light, coming from the artist's bottom.

        The Girl From the Sea, A Play for Voices (No. 2 of 10 Special Edition copies)

      [Monmouthshire]: The Old Stile Press [2008], 2008. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Onken, Michael. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. 50 p. Signed by Artist. No. II of 10 of the Special Edition, with an original signed watercolour and a suite of four proofs of the prints from within the book, signed and numbered by the artist, all five in a wallet. There are many stories and legends of selkies - the seals that surround the shores of Orkney - their deep brown eyes that captivate humans, their singing that mesmerises. George Mackay Brown had written stories of them before his passing in 1996. Then the publishers met an American artist, Michael Onken, who came regularly to Scotland to draw and paint and had developed a passion for the writing of GMB and for selkies which he drew while on Orkney. They asked the literary executors of GMB if by any chance there might be any unpublished writing about selkies - and almost by return they were offered this story, "The Girl from the Sea". It is a simply told play which involves a young man, his elderly parents and the arrival of a beautiful girl in their midst (N.B., above info from the web site of the Press). A lovely book with a haunting story.***DESCRIPTION: Bound in blue-grey cloth with a pictorial front panel of the artist's design, sky blue endpapers, title page in brown and moss green, text in moss green, profusely illustrated by Michael Onken with 27 images printed directly from wood engraved, woodcut and lino cut blocks; folio size (approximately 12.5" tall), unpaginated with 25 leaves, paper is Velin Arches, type Albertina; limited edition of 195 copies of the Main Edition plus 10 copies of the Special Edition, this is no.

        The Structure of Rime (with signed ATP print and prospectus)

      San Francisco: The Arion Press, 2008. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Lobdell, Frank. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. 96 p. Signed by Artist. Limited Edition of 275 copies, this No. 68; with an etching signed by the artist in a separate paper folder, this copy the single ATP (Artist's Trial Proof) out of 25 prints (20 + ATP + 2 AP + 2 PP) of this etching. Robert Duncan (1919-1988) was one of the most influential American poets of the second half of the twentieth century. Two of his major works were large serial poems entitled "Structure of Rime" and "Passages". He numbered each sequence, publishing them in magazines as they were written, and then inserting them into his books of poetry, collections covering distinct chronological periods. A collected edition of "The Structure of Rime" never appeared, probably because Duncan did not want to close off the possibility that he might compose more poems in that series and preferred to keep them in the train of his poetry as a whole. Twenty years after Duncan's death, the Arion Press published for the first time together the thirty-one poems of the series that appeared during Duncan's lifetime, plus seven poems identified as "Structure of Rime" in his notebooks that he had not published, one published posthumously in a literary magazine in the year of his death, six first published in this volume (N.B., info from the book's prospectus). Frank Lobdell (1921-2013) was one of America's premier postwar abstract painters, he "maintains a spiritual engagement with his work, reinventing and recycling the ideas behind his imagery" (from prospectus); in 1998, he was elected to the National Academy of Design. The author and artist were friends, each greatly admiring the other's work; this volume, bringing together their poetry and art, is a wonderful testimonial to them both in a striking work by the inimitable Arion Press. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in full rust-coloured Japanese cloth over boards, grey paper spine label with black lettering, inset into the front and back boards are two black and white Lobdell etchings with aquatint, fore- and bottom edges uncut, two black and white photographs of the poet bound in; type handset in Perpetua, printed on German mouldmade Zerkall Book Laid paper, quarto size (almost 11.25" tall), pagination: (1)-95, colophon (96); limited edition of 275, this no. 68. The matching publisher's slipcase is covered in the same rust Japanese cloth with grey paper sides, grey paper spine label with black lettering. The accompanying print comes from various editions of forty small etchings with aquatint made by Frank Lobdell from 1987-2000; this print is "Untitled, 8.29.90", and is the single ATP from an edition of 25 for this print, image size 6 x 3-78, paper size 12-1/2 x 11-1/2, medium being etching; ink on paper, SIGNED AND NUMBERED BY THE ARTIST; with a tissue guard, enclosed in a heavy grey paper folder with dark grey lettering on the front. Accompanying the book are two items, the first being the prospectus which is 16 pages long, with information about how the book came to be printed, photographs of both the author and artist, and reproductions of the artist's work both in black and white and in colour; the second item being an invitation card to the publication party being held in San Francisco, at the Arion Press, on November 19, 2008. ***CONDITION: Volume is fine, as new from the publisher and entirely free of prior owner markings, in a fine slipcase. The signed etching is fine as well, also its protective paper folder, which has been kept in the original publisher's plastic sleeve. The prospectus and invitation to the publication party are fine. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.
