From the publisher: "Over the course of his long career Bruce Davidson has travelled the world making reportage stories both on assignment as a member of the Magnum agency and on subjects of personal interest. A few years ago he returned to his archive of negatives housed in a room in his Manhattan apartment and began a ritual of revisiting each and every one of the stories he had made, from his work as a student in 1954 to his urban landscapes in Los Angeles in 2009. Printing in his darkroom alongside the archive, he began to elaborate a very personal selection, discovering forgotten images and throwing new light onto some of his most famous series. Outside Inside is the result of this work, a sumptuous three volume box set with fifty-three chapters over 800 pages. Each chapter is introduced by a short text written by Davidson himself. The result is a celebration of the development of a master of the medium and an autobiography, a photographer's life seen through his work." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Outside Myself 6

      Pasadena MD. 2009. Unique artist's book, #6 in a series of 6, this on Arches Text Wove paper, signed on the colophon in pencil and dated by the author / artist, Elizabeth McKee. Page size: 9-3/4 x 5 inches; 10pp. painted on reverse side of each page as well as on the lettered pages. Bound: by the artist / author: accordion fold with purple momigami paper over boards, front cover with onlay of gold gilt paper in shape of diamond, ivory Japanese endpapers collaged using rice paste with squares of assorted shapes and sizes and colors randomly sprinkled (think confetti), housed in purple momigmi pastepaper over boards clamshell box with title in gold gilt on spine, front cover with inset collage of smaller gold gilt diamond on larger darker purple diamond. Ms. McKee's poem is lettered in white pigment uni-ball Signo broad marker against a ground and illustrations in ink, acrylic modeling paste, as well as Koh-I-Nor coloured pencils, Derwent Inktense and Metallic pencils and USArtQuest's Stargazers pearlescent watercolors. The colophon page is recycled daphne paper. The poem (same as in OUTSIDE MYSELF 4), whimsical with a child-like simplicity and rhyme, is accompanied by thick (three-dimensional) broad-stroked images of a marionette with leg askew on child's ball, the puppet laying down as the sun comes peeking up over the horizon, with wild-looking swirls of ribbons in colors of purple and gold, followed by images of children peacefully in their beds with brightly colored coverlets while the toys mayhem surrounds them. This second poem in the series is in the voice of a child's toy. The poem starts, "Outside myself / there is a great big room / where I lie scattered with the other toys. / Exhausted from a night of going Zoom / and racing up and down with little boys. / Clutching paper jets we all karoomed while marionettes whirled wildly spreading joy. For night had banished crankiness & gloom..." The poems ends, "...but toys must wait for night to have their fun..." Simple enough text until the lettering takes on a whirling Dervish quality - as do the objects in the room: marionettes, children in their beds. All is askew - and the image of a peaceful nursery upended. A thoroughly enjoyable, charming book demanding regular re-visits. Certainly this would appeal to the child in any reader. See an Image.

      Darling publ. 2009. hardcover, 2 volumes, 2400 pag. ! 13.55kg. .Most important contemporary of jewellers of 2008 !! very good edition with illustrations on each page in color. A totally fantastic experience showing this colossal workThe Compendium of Contemporary Jewellery Makers in two Volumes, Part One, 2008 This 13,5 Kilo, 2400 pages Opus Maximus was released 14 March 2009 during the International Schmuck 2009 Fair and already nicknamed by many jewellers as "the Messiah" as it was eagerly awaited since a year and was expected to bring great relief in the sleepless nights of jewellers from 54 nations. At the Compendium Party during the release, over 1000 visitors could catch a glance at the most rumoured and gossiped about publication of 2008, and managed to empty over 180 bottles with alcoholic content within a couple of hours (at daytime!). 132 lucky jewellers could carry their boxed copies home (although quite many of them somehow underestimated the physical weight of 14 kilos!). During the waiting time for the rest of the edition to be bound (by hand!) it is expected that the nickname "Messiah" will be still valid, although a big difference is that The Compendium did show up.The Compendium will show on a never done before scale and manner what is happening in 2008 in the entire worldwide Contemporary Jewellery scene. Jewellery Artists from 54 nations has been nominated by Jewellery Artists. The 1st purpose of Andy Lim, the publisher and editor, is to try to establish Contemporary Jewellery as an equally respected art form in the Contemporary Art and to create a platform, not to be neglected, which will be reached already by its sheer volume and power of 1044 artists, united in one single publication. It is not only a book about 1000 jewellers, it is a book created by 1000 jewellers, as every jeweller have the full freedom of a 2-page presentation a person. The alphabetical order of presentation secures a non hierarchical and non political ranking. The publishers 2nd purpose is to discover beyond the already wellknown and established artists (ca. 300) interesting positions of contemporary jewellery. And who are better talent scouts than the artists themselves Who are more aware than anybody else of what collegues are doing They are at the cradle of the work process. And as 3rd, but not least goal: to present an astonishing bibliophile book in an unsurpassed quality of the highest standards in the Art of Bookmaking. - 2 Volume Hardcover in the Lim-slipcase with separate pull out system. - Bound in the Final Edition of the stunning Techno Fabric. - Print and handbinding entirely in Germany, as always with Darling Publications. - A stunning book where you discover everything your heart desires and covets. - An already legendary reference book, and that´s why a MUST for libraries, museums, galleries, design lovers and the serious art and book collectors. As Bruce Metcalf explained to somebody during the making of the Compendium: "It's true there's no overarching curatorial viewpoint - by design. Lim wanted to make the selection process more open

        THE SATYR'S SERMON. By the Hand and Eye of Alogos. Deluxe edition, bound in full morocco, with hand-made oak box, accompanied by a sacramental talisman of the Corpus Satyri

      No Place: Xoanon Publishing, MMIX [2009]. No Place: Xoanon Publishing, MMIX [2009]. First Edition, First Printing. Leather Bound. Fine in Slipcase and Hand Made Oak Box. Small oblong quarto, original full brown morocco. 84 pp. Letterpress printed in red, black and gold. The Deluxe edition, bound in full morocco, strictly limited to 111 numbered copies, this being copy Number 80. In a specially hand-made oak box, accompanied by a sacramental talisman of the Corpus Satyri, as issued. A fine copy in box with Talisman. ¶ Completed in early 2004, the Sermon formed a portion of the "Monadic Transmission" series of texts originally issued in hand-written, hand-illustrated editions of one copy only. This unique grimoire concerns the sorcerous precept of Unfettered Desire, as expounded in parable form by the twin sexual hypostases of the Sabbatic Agapae. The book gives voice to a connubial dialectic patterned upon 26 aphoristic formulae or "Sermons" and their accompanying calligraphic sigils. As a whole, the book exposits diverse formulae of magical adoration, invoking the eternal mystae of The Beloved. The original 2004 manuscript of 'The Satyr's Sermon' was accompanied by a sigilised communion wafer divided into four parts -- the 'Corpus Satyri'. The talisman that was made for the deluxe version of the book is based on the original.

Illustrated with six original full- page intaglio prints, endsheets with emboassed spheres along bottom edge by Judith Rothchild. Ms. Rothchild has varied her print-making methods from her usual mezzotint to mezzotint with rocker, roulette and dry point all pulled by her from her original worked copper plates. The text has been set by Mark Lintott in Vendome Romain and printed by him on an Albion press. Ms. Rothchild's intaglio prints are perfectly suited to Leonardo's text on light and shade. Her solid forms - whether a peach or skein of twine or wood cylindar - absorb light, reflect light, cast shadows, block light, in short, do all that they should to exemplify the text.

        AMERICAN RUST

      New York City, NY: Spiegel & Grau, 2009. New York City, NY: Spiegel & Grau, 2009. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Spiegel & Grau, 2009. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 370 pages. The author&#39;s breakthrough debut novel. Now widely considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a tiny first print run as a hardcover original only by a small press. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Philipp Meyer&#39;s outstanding achievement of a first novel. "Set in a beautiful but dying Pennsylvania steel town, &#39;American Rust&#39; is a novel of the lost American Dream and the desperation that arises from its loss. It is the story of two young men bound to the town by family, responsibility, inertia, and the beauty around them, who dream of a future beyond the factories, abandoned homes, and the polluted river. An extraordinarily moving novel about the bleak realities that battle our desire for transcendence and the power of love and friendship to redeem us" (Publisher&#39;s blurb) . An absolute "must-have" title for Philipp Meyer collectors. <b><i> This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed and inscribed ("lined", in his elegant cursive handwriting) in blue ink-pen on the title page by the author: "The nuthouse prison-break. Anyone sees you and it&#39;s Silas get the dogs [the last two lines of the novel&#39;s first paragraph] Philipp Meyer". This title is a great book. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. It is, quite simply, the most beautiful signed copy we have ever seen. There are other signed copies available online, but they either have serious flaws, are remainder-marked, or are subsequent printings yet still command hundreds of dollars. This book&#39;s collectible value will evidently continue to rise over time. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> "American Rust" is widely regarded as a contemporary American classic. One of the most brilliant living American writers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PHILIPP MEYER TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0385527519.

        Outside Myself 6.

      Pasadena MD 2009 - Unique artist's book, #6 in a series of 6, this on Arches Text Wove paper, signed on the colophon in pencil and dated by the author / artist, Elizabeth McKee. Page size: 9-3/4 x 5 inches; 10pp. painted on reverse side of each page as well as on the lettered pages. Bound: by the artist / author: accordion fold with purple momigami paper over boards, front cover with onlay of gold gilt paper in shape of diamond, ivory Japanese endpapers collaged using rice paste with squares of assorted shapes and sizes and colors randomly sprinkled (think confetti), housed in purple momigmi pastepaper over boards clamshell box with title in gold gilt on spine, front cover with inset collage of smaller gold gilt diamond on larger darker purple diamond. Ms. McKee's poem is lettered in white pigment uni-ball Signo broad marker against a ground and illustrations in ink, acrylic modeling paste, as well as Koh-I-Nor coloured pencils, Derwent Inktense and Metallic pencils and USArtQuest's Stargazers pearlescent watercolors. The colophon page is recycled daphne paper. The poem (same as in OUTSIDE MYSELF 4), whimsical with a child-like simplicity and rhyme, is accompanied by thick (three-dimensional) broad-stroked images of a marionette with leg askew on child's ball, the puppet laying down as the sun comes peeking up over the horizon, with wild-looking swirls of ribbons in colors of purple and gold, followed by images of children peacefully in their beds with brightly colored coverlets while the toys mayhem surrounds them. This second poem in the series is in the voice of a child's toy. The poem starts, "Outside myself / there is a great big room / where I lie scattered with the other toys. / Exhausted from a night of going Zoom / and racing up and down with little boys. / Clutching paper jets we all karoomed while marionettes whirled wildly spreading joy. For night had banished crankiness & gloom." The poems ends, ".but toys must wait for night to have their fun." Simple enough text until the lettering takes on a whirling Dervish quality - as do the objects in the room: marionettes, children in their beds. All is askew - and the image of a peaceful nursery upended. A thoroughly enjoyable, charming book demanding regular re-visits. Certainly this would appeal to the child in any reader.

        Dalla parola alla frase. Imparare a comprendere nella scuola primaria

      Centro Studi Erickson 2009 Saper comprendere ciò che si legge è una competenza fondamentale che nasce dalla convergenza di molti fattori: le particolari disposizioni del soggetto, il contesto culturale di provenienza, i climi di classe, i tipi di testo affrontati. Importantissima però è anche la mediazione didattica, che risulta tanto più efficace quanto più si fonda su percorsi chiari, ben strutturati, completi e accattivanti. E da tale consapevolezza che nasce questo libro, completamente originale nell'impianto e nelle attività, ma che affianca e riprende nella concezione di fondo il CD - ROM omonimo che ha avuto grande diffusione nella scuola primaria. Il volume si compone di quindici episodi che hanno come protagonisti tre singolari personaggi: il topolino Teo, nonno Pippo e uno strano gatto, Felpa. Il materiale presentato copre l'intero arco della scuola primaria e si impernia su cinque attività fondamentali: riordino, associo, completo, cerco e comprendo. Ciascuna di esse viene proposta più volte, nell'arco di 15 moduli di complessità crescente. Ne risulta un curricolo molto articolato, che l'insegnante può programmare e organizzare secondo le necessità della classe o del singolo alunno, a seconda delle abilità che vuole sviluppare, dei livelli o degli interessi, realizzando così un modello didattico flessibile e coerente. pagine 400, Brossura, volume in Italiano .

        Mettiti nella mia pelliccia. Piccole storie dalla parte della natura

      Centro Studi Erickson 2009 C'era una volta un circo con un domatore feroce, alcuni leoni ribelli che volevano ritornare alla vita selvaggia, un furbo topolino che trovava la strada per la libertà. C'era una volta un albero fatto di nuvole, con il potere di scatenare la pioggia o di far splendere il sole, che venne abbattuto dagli uomini per ricavarne risorse effimere. C'erano una volta Orazio e il suo cane Tobia, due amici inseparabili che si somigliavano anche un po', finché una mattina Orazio si svegliò e si accorse di avere una lunga coda che gli spuntava dal pigiama... Sono questi alcuni protagonisti dei racconti di "Mettiti nella mia pelliccia", che nel titolo trovano la loro ragione d'essere - mettersi dal punto di vista degli animali e della natura - , informando e sensibilizzando i ragazzi in età scolare (ma non solo) sull'importanza di un corretto rapporto con l'ambiente e i suoi vari abitanti, oggi così difficile da costruire per la mancanza di esperienze dirette. Questo libro è un invito a entrare in empatia con i personaggi delle storie e, attraverso di essi, a riconoscere il senso ecologico come valore primario per la nostra stessa sopravvivenza. Età di lettura: da 6 anni. pagine 86, Brossura, volume in Italiano .
