        Edges (Thread Wrap)

      Dallas, Texas:: A Bee Press,, 2009.. Edition of 4 variants. 7 x 9.5 x 4.5", altered book Las mejores novelas cortas (The best short novels). Crocheted edges. Media: paper, leather, synthetic hair. Signed by the artist.. Alisa Banks: "Edges is a series of altered books that consist of hair crocheted onto the edges of page. The hair fiber lends texture and line - the embellishment (the action) occurs only on the edges, which symbolize the marginal, the end, the between, and duality. "The Edges series is based on African / African ancestry braided styles. Each book features a different 'hairstyle.' The pieces were created during a time when there was much political dialog on the national, state and local level concerning (illegal) immigration. Often the dialog took an underlying tone of intolerance and had little to do with immigration status. The tones of intolerance (which were cross-cultural), reminded me of growing up in the 60's and 70's during integration. The hair treatment symbolizes how much activity, creativity, and life happens on the 'edges' of mainstream society, regardless of whether or not it is recognized. … "Conceptually, regarding the books contents - the books were chosen primarily because of their intimate size and because they are written in Spanish; however, the actual stories do not relate to the overall piece.

In Cahoots Press: "This book is the artist's attempted reconciliation of living in the present while longing for her remembered hometown. Letterpress printed maps convey a more emotional than geographical terrain; events and places are recorded and revisited, worried over and examined. Silk tissue apertures punctuate the pages offering the reader glimpses of previous and subsequent images. This sequential aspect of the book literally and metaphorically has the reader both seeing the past through the present and looking forward through history's gauze.

        Postage Due Forever Stamps

      Wellesley, Massachusetts:: C. David Thomas,, 2009.. Edition of 25. 6.75 x 7.25 x 2.5"; 14 tri-fold booklets. Printed on Innova short grain, 200 gram, natural white soft texture duo paper. Printed from a Hewlet Packard Photosmart Pro B9180 using archival ink. Presented in a black linen clamshell box handmade by craftsmakers in Hanoi, Viet Nam. Ribbon and velcro closure. Illustrated title label on box cover. Postage mage thumbnails on interior of box. C. David Thomas, Introduction: "This book contains twelve sets of stamps with images that cannot be found on U.S. Postal Service stamps. These include, among other, images of Vietnam's leader Ho Chi Minh working with U.S. soldiers during WWII, images of American prisoners of war drawn by a former North Vietnamese soldier/artist, images of Agent Orange victims, images of the My Lai massacre in South Vietnam, images of a badly burned young girl fleeing from her village which had just been napalmed, and images of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, after the US nuclear bombing of those densely populated cities. "I never really thought much about the importance of how we chose what images to place on our stamps until one day in 1995, when I went to post office and asked for an interesting stamp. The woman behind the counter handed me a sheet of the recently issued Richard Nixon stamp. This stamp was issued only twenty years after he was forced to resign in disgrace as the 37th President of the United States. Needless to say, I handed them back to her with some choice words. "The next time I was to think about stamps was in 1996, when I went to the philately society in Hanoi, Viet Nam, while doing research for a book on President Ho Chi Minh. Of course I found dozens of stamps with the image of Ho Chi Minh as well as many other world leaders including Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Karl Marx, Mao Tse Dung, and Mahatma Gandhi. Other stamps I found depicted Vietnamese war and sports heroes, butterflies, frogs, flowers, and even a 1966 stamp depicting the shooting down of the 1,500th US aircraft brought down over North Viet Nam and one with the image of NormanMorrison, the man who immolated himself outside Robert McNamara's office at the Pentagon."I have begun to understand the real power of this little jewel which may be the smallest form of propaganda available to all governments.These miniature posters travel all over the world spreading their message of the country of issue. Not only is it important what we decide to include on our stamps but possibly more important is what we chose not to put on our stamps."Just a few days before the US Post Office issued Robert Indiana's LOVE stamp in 1973, the US heavily bombed the densely populated city Hanoi killing hundreds of innocent Vietnamese civilians. "For many summers during the 1950s and 60s my sister Karen and I, in order to escape the summer heat, would spend hours upon hours swimming and playing at Raymond Pond, ME. On a similarly hot summer day in June of 1968, Kim Phuc was playing with her two brothers in a tiny hamlet just north of Saigon when a US fighter jet dropped napalm on them, killing her two brothers instantly and burning the skin off her back."The images in this book were selected because they depict important events in American history which seldom appear in our historical documents. They are intended to force you to think and ask questions about our history as well as our future. If we refuse or ignore to face these facts, how can we ever have a clear understanding of our history? And won't we simply continue to repeat our mistakes? My Lai will be come Abu Ghraib and on and on.

        Postage Due Forever Stamps

      Wellesley, Massachusetts:: C. David Thomas,, 2009.. Edition of 25. 6.75 x 7.25 x 2.5"; 14 tri-fold booklets. Printed on Innova short grain, 200 gram, natural white soft texture duo paper. Printed from a Hewlet Packard Photosmart Pro B9180 using archival ink. Presented in a black linen clamshell box handmade by craftsmakers in Hanoi, Viet Nam. Ribbon and velcro closure. Illustrated title label on box cover. Postage mage thumbnails on interior of box. C. David Thomas, Introduction: "This book contains twelve sets of stamps with images that cannot be found on U.S. Postal Service stamps. These include, among other, images of Vietnam's leader Ho Chi Minh working with U.S. soldiers during WWII, images of American prisoners of war drawn by a former North Vietnamese soldier/artist, images of Agent Orange victims, images of the My Lai massacre in South Vietnam, images of a badly burned young girl fleeing from her village which had just been napalmed, and images of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, after the US nuclear bombing of those densely populated cities. "I never really thought much about the importance of how we chose what images to place on our stamps until one day in 1995, when I went to post office and asked for an interesting stamp. The woman behind the counter handed me a sheet of the recently issued Richard Nixon stamp. This stamp was issued only twenty years after he was forced to resign in disgrace as the 37th President of the United States. Needless to say, I handed them back to her with some choice words. "The next time I was to think about stamps was in 1996, when I went to the philately society in Hanoi, Viet Nam, while doing research for a book on President Ho Chi Minh. Of course I found dozens of stamps with the image of Ho Chi Minh as well as many other world leaders including Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Karl Marx, Mao Tse Dung, and Mahatma Gandhi. Other stamps I found depicted Vietnamese war and sports heroes, butterflies, frogs, flowers, and even a 1966 stamp depicting the shooting down of the 1,500th US aircraft brought down over North Viet Nam and one with the image of Norman Morrison, the man who immolated himself outside Robert McNamara's office at the Pentagon. "I have begun to understand the real power of this little jewel which may be the smallest form of propaganda available to all governments.These miniature posters travel all over the world spreading their message of the country of issue. Not only is it important what we decide to include on our stamps but possibly more important is what we chose not to put on our stamps. "Just a few days before the US Post Office issued Robert Indiana's LOVE stamp in 1973, the US heavily bombed the densely populated city Hanoi killing hundreds of innocent Vietnamese civilians. "For many summers during the 1950s and 60s my sister Karen and I, in order to escape the summer heat, would spend hours upon hours swimming and playing at Raymond Pond, ME. On a similarly hot summer day in June of 1968, Kim Phuc was playing with her two brothers in a tiny hamlet just north of Saigon when a US fighter jet dropped napalm on them, killing her two brothers instantly and burning the skin off her back. "The images in this book were selected because they depict important events in American history which seldom appear in our historical documents. They are intended to force you to think and ask questions about our history as well as our future. If we refuse or ignore to face these facts, how can we ever have a clear understanding of our history? And won't we simply continue to repeat our mistakes? My Lai will be come Abu Ghraib and on and on.

        Craft

      San Francisco:: Eastside Editions,, 2009.. Edition of 20. 12.875 x 12.875"; 18 pages. Flutter book. Eight spit-bite aquatint etchings with softground, drypoint, and roulette. Letterpress printed in Quadrata on Hahnem?hle Copperplate Warm White paper. Bound in blue cloth over boards with red cloth spine. Title embossed on front board. Text from an article in the Surfer's Journal (Vol 13, Number 4) titled "A Shaper's Fugue." Includes a one-page letterpress-printed Glossary loosely inserted into an flap on the inside of the back board so it can provide easy reference for the reader. Eastside Editions: "CRAFT: Shaping a Surfboard is an exploration of what it means to spend days working with your hands. The handwork required to make a surfboard, an etching, or an artist book is the inspiration that enabled Jessica Dunne to fuse her love of the craft of making prints with a lifetime spent in the world of surfers. "The idea of putting words with images to create an interaction between them has always fascinated Dunne. This is her first artist book after years looking for the appropriate text. Dunne's father, Philip Dunne, was a screenwriter, and her grandfather was Finley Peter Dunne, the political satirist. With this background, she realized that to put words and images together required the right text. She found that text in the writings of Dave Parmenter."Dave Parmenter is a renowned surfboard shaper, writer, and former professional surfer. He writes personally - and often furiously - about shaping boards, surfing, and contemporary surf culture. In his dedication to his craft, Dunne found something akin to her feelings about her own work. His article in the Surfer's Journal about shaping a surfboard, with all the considerations that make it function in dangerous situations, is excerpted in this book. "Dunne grew up in Malibu, and her partner of many years, Mark Renneker, is a devoted big-wave surfer. She has lived for years with as many as forty-five surfboards of varying lengths and silhouettes. She is not a surfer, however.But it wasn't the sport of surfing that caught her attention as being the motive for shaping a surfboard. The craftsmen involved in the task, their tools, and the terminology all fascinated her.... "The craftsman holding out against technology and mechanized efficiency is a driving force in the author's monologue. And the prints evoke the working environment of the surfboard shaper. People involved in fine crafts have more in common than not. Since the industrial revolution began, craftsmen have been skulking around, sensing, and maybe enjoying, impending obsolescence.... "Each page of text faces a spit-bite aquatint etching.... a technique of painting acid on an aquatinted plate to produce rich and soft tones. Dunne is well known for her spit-bite aquatints in black and white. In this project, however, she created color prints using multiple plates. "This book is about shaping a surfboard, but it is also a tribute to craftsmen, including those who contributed to the book itself: Dave Parmenter the writer, David Avery the etching printer, Jonathan Clark the typesetter and letterpress printer, and the binder Klaus-Ullrich S. Rötzscher at Pettingell Book Bindery.

SIGNED and dated by the artist on the verso of the front panel. A collection of found pages, juxtaposing New York Yellow Pages listings with California resort advertisements. Smith's extensive commitment to book arts blurs the line between what goes on the wall and what stays between the pages. This dynamic tension is a trend among artists of Smith's generation who see the book not just as a repository of images for a catalogue, but rather as a fully mature form of expression.

        Edges (Twist Braid)

      Dallas, Texas:: A Bee Press,, 2009.. Edition of 4 variants. 7 x 9.5 x 4.5", altered book Las mejores novelas cortas (The best short novels). Crocheted edges. Media: paper, leather, synthetic hair. Signed by the artist.. Alisa Banks: "Edges is a series of altered books that consist of hair crocheted onto the edges of page. The hair fiber lends texture and line - the embellishment (the action) occurs only on the edges, which symbolize the marginal, the end, the between, and duality. "The Edges series is based on African / African ancestry braided styles. Each book features a different 'hairstyle.' The pieces were created during a time when there was much political dialog on the national, state and local level concerning (illegal) immigration. Often the dialog took an underlying tone of intolerance and had little to do with immigration status. The tones of intolerance (which were cross-cultural), reminded me of growing up in the 60's and 70's during integration. The hair treatment symbolizes how much activity, creativity, and life happens on the 'edges' of mainstream society, regardless of whether or not it is recognized. … "Conceptually, regarding the books contents - the books were chosen primarily because of their intimate size and because they are written in Spanish; however, the actual stories do not relate to the overall piece.

        Heat Wave - First Edition and First Printing

      New York: Hyperion, 2009 New; pristine and immaculate. New York: Hyperion, 2009. First Edition and First Printing of Heat Wave by (the pseudonymous) Richard Castle. Also, there is no date on copyright page, and 09/09 is on the rear jacket flap. This example is a first as first gets. Octavo, illustrated jacket (uncredited), black cloth boards, silver spine imprinting, 198 pp. New, flawless, immaculate, and pristine, and of course a wall-to-wall first, chronologically. A collector piece. The first novel in the series inspired by the series of "novels" in the "Castle" television series, which were, in the television series, "written" by the television "Richard Castle", Nate Fillion. There will be a quiz on that. Heat Wave was not, in fact, written by Nate Fillion, but it will be a long time before the identity of the actual author is divulged. If ever. Some folks think it was written by the late Stephen J. Cannell (who was a best-selling author, and whose semi-tongue-in-cheek promo quote appears on the back cover here), but those folks are just fishin'. But, somewhere, someone knows. L56n

        An Alphabet of Extinct Mammals

      2009. WAKEFIELD, D.R. An Alphabet of Extinct Mammals. Illustrated with twenty-seven etchings by Robert Wakefield. Folio, bound by Gray Parrot in quarter leather and paste paper over boards. Goole, East Yorkshire: The Chevington Press, 2009. |~||~||~||~||~| In this stunning return to the natural history books which he created in the 1980s, Wakefield has taken the theme of mammalian extinction and created an alphabet of animals which no longer roam the earth and seas. His life-long obsession with natural history has been transferred to these sadly extinct creatures with his beautifully rendered etchings and explanatory texts. Among the animals are the Bali tiger, the Japanese Wolf, the Madagascan Pigmy Hippopotamus and the Quaga. The twenty-seven color etchings were printed on Somerset paper using a 19th-century star wheel engraving press. The text was set by the artist and printed on an early Ullmer and Watts Albion Press. One of an edition of 55 copies, with the colophon signed by Wakefield.

        L'art et l'histoire de la caricature

      - Paris , Citadelles et Mazenod 2009. 1 Volume/1. -- Parfait état -- Broché cousu . Couverture illustrée. Format in-4°( 31,5 x 25 cm )( 1745 gr ) . ------- 303 pages richement illustrées . *********************** " Le terme " caricature " est souvent appliqué sans distinction à la gravure de mœurs, aux cartoons, voire au dessin d'humour en général. Son étymologie indique cependant qu'il vient de l'italien caricatura et du latin caricare qui signifie, au propre comme au figuré, " charger ". La caricature attaque donc le corps et le visage par l'exagération de leurs singularités ou de leurs défauts, à des fins comiques ou satiriques. Si ce corps est celui des individus, il peut également accéder à une dimension symbolique et représenter une entité abstraite ou collective. Faire l'histoire de la caricature consiste donc à en suivre les déclinaisons. Le plus souvent, elles transgressent les règles ou les conventions du grand art qui aspire à l'idéal. Mais elles contribuent aussi à le faire évoluer vers des modes d'expression nouveaux. La caricature comme genre spécifique fondé sur la déformation de la figure humaine apparaît en Italie à la Renaissance avant de se propager à l'Europe entière, puis au-delà. Une de ses spécificités réside d'ailleurs dans l'importance de sa diffusion, largement favorisée par les nouvelles techniques de gravures apparues au même moment. Depuis la Réforme, l'estampe a été le vecteur de la caricature, qu'elle soit religieuse ou politique, tout comme l'imprimerie a été celui de la fustigation par le pamphlet. La lithographie a ensuite joué un rôle central dans l'essor de la presse satirique au XIXe siècle, tandis que les nouveaux procédés de reproduction ont permis la démocratisation des images. Dans ce contexte, il n'est guère étonnant de compter quelques caricaturistes parmi les premiers photographes. Ces nouvelles formes de reproductibilité induisaient une conception de l'art moins élitiste qui faisait écho aux préoccupations des théoriciens de l'art et des penseurs politiques. Autour de 1900, être caricaturiste de presse fut souvent un engagement. Parce qu'elle remettait en cause les principes de la représentation traditionnelle, la caricature intéressait les artistes des avant-gardes. Mais elle fut surtout le creuset de la bande dessinée et du dessin animé, deux formes emblématiques de la culture visuelle populaire. Depuis lors, la caricature a constamment été enrichie par d'autres techniques, jusqu'à celles du numérique, dans des médias toujours plus variés, pour une diffusion sans cesse accrue.
