Monotypes with pastel by Charles Hobson printed as high resolution digital prints. Paper-covered boards of reproductions of the charts used by Roger Angell. Contained in a slipcase covered in canvas to emulate sailcloth. Signed by author and artist. Prospectus: "The maritime charts of Maine used in the book have been reproduced from old charts once used by Roger Angell, particularly Chart 14414, 'Approaches to Blue Hill Bay.' ... The overhead view of the islands are based on those provided by Google Earth, Version 4.2. The model sails and rigging roughly suggest those of the gaff-rigged Herreshoff 12 1/2. ... "Roger Angell, the distinguished senior editor at The New Yorker magazine, is best known outside the magazine for his writings about baseball. However, his memoir Ancient Mariner about sailing in Maine displays his ability to use language elegantly and precisely while conveying vivid images of his experiences of more than sixty years. ..." Anyone who has ever sailed should understand Angell's simple but rock-true conclusion about the attraction of sailing — "almost in touch with the motions of my planet: not at one with them but riding a little crest and enjoying the view.

Winston is determined to hear the complete tale, but the lesson is a surprise.

        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.

        Unique String-Bound Book

      [N.p.: Self-published], (2009). Fine in hand-painted, string-bound wrappers.. Unique handmade artists' book by Josh Smith, bound with string along the spine gutter. Small square quarto. 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.

Housed in wooden hinged file box with brass clasp. Signed and numbered by the artist. WSW: "Inside Out chronicles the artist's and her father's lives as they unexpectedly crisscross back and forth. Written as a series of diaries from each person's perspective on fifteen very particular days in their lives, the entries reveal the pain and confusion of two people as they bump up against questions of appearance and reality, deception and truth. Three years in the making, the box set contains thirty individual diaries, all written by the artist, paired off into fifteen die-cut file folders and housed in a finely crafted red oak file box." Nancy Callahan: "Inside Out began in the winter of 2007 when I spent three months composting the text of the thirty fictitious diaries. While the entries are based on my own recollections and substantiated by others, it is bound together with a certain amount of conjecture."From File Folder #1, November 15, 1946: "It was the ideal family … or so it appeared from the outside looking in. There was the tall handsome father with an important job in the nearby city, who earned good money and paid the bills on time, a pretty mother who stayed home, baked cookies, and had supper on the table every night at six, seven reasonably well-behaved children, a collie that followed the children about, and an assortment of cat that took care of themselves, as cats will."In this case, perception, or appearance, was not reality.

        APOCALIPSIS de Alberto Durero

      - CM EDITORES. Códices y libros iluminados. Salamanca 2009 ISBN: 978--84--936312--6--0 FACSIMIL - OBRA COMPLETA - Tanto el "Apocalipsis con Figuras", realizado tras su primer viaje a Italia como la "Gran Pasión de nuestro Señor Jesucristo", completada tras su segundo viaje, son títulos fundamentales y únicos por su formato y genialidad.Alberto Durero, (1471 – 1528) es el artista más famoso del Renacimiento alemán, conocido en todo el mundo por sus pinturas, dibujos, grabados y escritos teóricos sobre arte, que ejercieron una profunda influencia en los artistas del siglo XVI de su propio país y de los Países Bajos.Con veintisiete años realiza su primera gran obra con la técnica de la entalladura, "El Apocalipsis". "Apocalipsis", es una serie de grabados del pintor realizada en 1498 sobre el libro bíblico del mismo nombre. Es considerada una obra maestra en el campo del grabado, conservándose el original en la Biblioteca Nacional de España con la signatura "Incunable nº 1".Esta serie de grabados fue realizada a la vuelta de su primer viaje Italia, cuando estaba comenzando su madurez como artista. "El Apocalipsis" brilla como una de las maravillas de todo el arte alemán. El autor usa un dibujo nudoso, en efervescencia. Su espíritu es todavía medieval pero ya revela su personalidad. El libro de Durero fue el primero publicado por un artista a sus propias y exclusivas expensas. Antes de esta obra los artistas buscaban un mecenas que financiera su arte. Tal es la confianza de Durero en su trabajo, que él mismo financia la edición de este Apocalipsis. Por tanto, podemos estar hablando de la primera autoedición artística.Los anteriores Apocalipsis miniados en general, habían tenido una disposición distinta, con ilustraciones a página completa distribuidas a lo largo del volumen, o pequeñas pero insertadas en el texto, o bien con hileras de imágenes explicadas mediante epígrafes. Durero reservó el haz de la página para el grabado y dispuso el texto en el dorso. Los artistas anteriores habían confiado en el color para completar el efecto vigoroso; a Durero no le hizo falta el color; consiguió unas imágenes rebosantes de fuerza tan solo con el blanco y negro.

        Dennis Hopper photographs 1961- 1967.

      Taschen, Koeln, 2009 - Text by Dennis Hopper, Walter Hopps, Victor Bockris, Jessica Hundley. "This title presents the many worlds of Dennis Hopper. The sixties, in all their turbulence and revelation, have been documented many times over - but the photographic recollections of actor/artist/director Dennis Hopper have set themselves decidedly apart. Now an undisputed icon of the era, Hopper captured some of the most intriguing moments of his generation with a keen and intuitive eye. At the epicenter of a cultural upheaval that would transform art, music, and politics, Hopper documented the likes of Tina Turner in the studio, Andy Warhol at his first West Coast show, Paul Newman on set, and Martin Luther King during the Civil Rights March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama with equal insight and grace. These amazing images have been collected into a single extensive volume - over a third of them never before published and all mined from Hopper's own personal archive. In evocative, remarkably personal photos, Hopper captured the performers, the politicians, and the poets who defined those incredible years. And at the center of this intimate overview are the artists and collectors who would ignite the Pop Art movement and create some of the most potent visual imagery of the 20th century. In many ways this is photography as film, a deeply poignant narrative expressed through a collection of unforgettable images. With his marriage to actress Brooke Heyward and his roles in "Rebel Without A Cause and Giant", a young Hopper's own fame allowed for an intimate connection with even his most celebrated subjects. The result is photography that captures the same energy and intensity that would later mark Hopper's work as actor and director. His early photos of Tijuana bull fights, L.A. happenings and urban street scenes are marked by an experimentation and imagination that would lead directly into the vivid cinematic imagery of Easy Rider and beyond. From a selection painstakingly made over the course of two decades by Hopper and longtime friend and infamous gallerist Tony Shafrazi, the book highlights Hopper's vast photographic career, with emphasis on the 1960s. Also integrated in this title are interviews with Hopper's famous subjects, as well as his family, friends, and extensive conversations with Hopper himself. With introductory essays by Shafrazi and Walter Hopps, co-founder of Los Angeles' legendary Ferus gallery, and an in-depth biography by Jessica Hundley, this is an unprecedented exploration into the mind and experiences of one of America's most fascinating personalities." cm.33,5x44,5, pp.544, centinaia di ill.e tavv.bn.e col.nt.e ft. - Excellent condition anche a doppia pag. leg.ed.in t.tela stampata con riproduz.fotografiche in bn.

        Shelter

      Tucson, Arizona:: Spaceheater Editions,, 2009.. Edition of 50. 11.25 x 8.5"; 52 pages. HP Indigo printed on Mohawk Superfine paper. Photographic images on boards with sewn binding. Variation of the floating hinge format creates a book within a book. Phil Zimmermann: "Shelter came out of an exploration of losing faith and questioning on of its opposites: the process of finding religion. This text came out of watching my dying father, who was never religious when I was growing up, become increasingly interested in faith and salvation as he became sicker from heart disease and cancer. I saw the desert with it's unfriendly flora and harsh environment as a metaphor for the difficult world towards the end of many people's lives. The desert is also used in many religious tracts as a place for contemplation and mortification. In this work roadside shelters and gospel ministries were used as signifiers of ways and places where people look (vainly?) to relive prospects of their approaching death."A wondrously complex book aptly suited for the knotty subject of dying (very much different than death and its aftermath). Turn the pages and cloud-laden skies, always with a gray cast, provide framework for an alternating chain of Southwest borderland secular shelters (Wayside Stops or Rest Areas in some parts of the US) and churches clad in the look of evangelism. Text at the bottom of most pages contains the tortured musings of a man with "the inevitable irritability that comes with a body surrendering to age," a man who would like "shelter and comfort: peace" both physical and spiritual. The book structure suggests that the comfort may be difficult or impossible because the beauty of blooming cacti is present but almost impossible to see. The final page contains the last lines from William Cullen Bryant's "Thanatopsis," a wish perhaps from Zimmermann to his father – no promise of an undiscovered country, but solace as a kind of shelter in the last moments on this side of the border.

Box by John Demerritt. Printed by Electric Works in San Francisco. Signed and numbered by the artist on the colophon. Joan Schulze, colophon: "I found a book, old ,severely used, with the binding falling apart. The torn edges and antiqued paper was perfect collage material. My original plan was to make 13 collages for my annual contribution to the International Collage Exchange. I had 20 collages when I completed this series. By chance, a slightly surreal story grew from the random uncovered fragments of text. Not wanting to separate them, I decided to produce a limited edition artist's book.
