        Ballad for a Crazy / Balada para un Loco. Music by Astor Piazzola and Lyrics by Horatio Ferrer. Translated from the original Spanish to English by Alberto Paz

      Stillwater, ME USA and Buenos Aires, Argentina. 2009. Unique artist&#39;s book by Maine-based artist Nancy Leavitt, collaborating with Buenos Aires binder Sol Rebora, executed on several different papers - white, salmon pink, aqua, periwinkle, ochre, gold and dark blue, signed by the artist, Nancy Leavitt, on the colophon and dated and by the binder, Sol Rebora. Page size: 11 x 6-7/8 inches; 22pp. lettered and painted by Ms. Leavitt plus colophon. Bound by Sol Rebora in purple morocco, with onlays of purple skins (skived from the top skin these are the middle parings in variant shades), punctuated with white (tinged with lavender) irregular circles and small white dots extending over top half on front panel and bottom half on back panel, the overall design not unlike the patterns of footprints used to teach dance steps; spine smooth, top headbands of light blue, aqua, and white, bottom bands of pink, white, and light blue, turn-ins of dark purple Japanese paper, housed in custom-made matching clamshell box of lavender paper over boards, purple morocco spine stamped in palladium gilt with title in English and Spanish. The binding is a study in dimensionality - with ever so subtle changes in level from onlay to onlay, weaving a delicate pattern one&#39;s eye cannot help but follow. & A most whimsical and enchanting book - guaranteed to set your feet dancing and your heart flying. Ms. Leavitt&#39;s soaring birds, moon, oranges, sky, and rainbow of words in orange, blue, yellow and blue work together to make the lyrics of this Argentine tango come to life - or rather to a life on another happier plane of existence than is usually found on this planet. Ms. Rebora&#39;s elegant restrained binding is the perfect foil for the exuberance of the text and images. The text reads in part, "You laugh! But only you can see me: / because the mannequins wink at me, the traffic lights flash me three lights sky-blue / and the oranges at the corner grocery stand / cast their blossoms at me. / come on! that this way, half dancing, half flying..." and "From Vieytes they applaud: &#39;Hooray! Hooray!&#39; / the nuts who invented love..." and "Love me the way I am, crazy, crazy, crazy...". The colors and images are inspired by the words - and we sing and dance along with author, composer, and artists. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10400.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        Fragments of Light 4. Lithographs by Fran Siegel. Translated by Zahra Partovi

      New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Company. 2009. Artist&#39;s book, one of 35 copies, all on hand-made linen paper by Dieu Donne Papermill and Mylar, each numbered, and signed and dated by the artist, Fran Siegel, and signed in Persian by the translator, Zahra Partovi. Page size: 6-1/2 x 9-1/2 inches; 26 leaves. Bound: as desk calendar on stainless steel base, made by Milgo Bufkin, four screws fastening the two "rings" that hold the pages of the book, housed in custom-made grey cloth over boards clamshell box, box by BookLab II. The titlepage and colophon are printed by Jerry Kelly in black and silver with Kelly&#39;s own calligraphy. Ms. Siegal&#39;s lithographs were printed in silver on the white transparent linen by Kelly Driscoll. Each page of linen is followed by a silver Mylar page. Each etching was not re-inked when repeated on the silver Mylar page resulting in a shadow image. The text is laser cut. It appears first in Ms. Partovi&#39;s elegant Persian calligraphy at the top and bottom of each page with the circular litho surrounding circular disc cut into each page, "reading" as silver against the succeeding silver Mylar page. It is followed by her flowing English translation on the silver Mylar page. This English text appears at the top and bottom of each page, and "reads" as white from the following linen page. It can be read through the linen page, just below and above where the Persian calligraphic lines appear. The circular cut-outs on each page are successively smaller; the final cut on the colophon page reveals the stainless steel base. Combinations of four different inks were used to print each of the lithographs resulting in each page appearing slightly darker as the concentric "circles" become smaller. & Ms. Partovi&#39;s translated lines, "When he summons me I behold myself! Unsightly or worthy of the magnetism?" or "How now can I see my own face?" are perfectly translated in this book. Whoever reads the text sees their own image reflected in the silver Mylar. It is at once disconcerting and yet to the point of Rumi&#39;s search for illumination and union with God. One of the central figures of Islamic culture, Rumi (1207-1273) only recently began to emerge as a poet of significance to Westerners. Zahra Partovi, the translator, has taught the poetry of Rumi at The New School for Social Research, and is widely acknowledged as one of the leading interpreters of his work for English-speaking readers. She has collaborated with Vincent FitzGerald on 11 previous limited editions of Rumi&#39;s work. Her own words on the significance of Rumi&#39;s poetry explain her work. "...the most remarkable biographical information about Jalaluddin Rumi&#39;s life is not the appearance and disappearance of the mystic Shams, but Rumi&#39;s imperative and conscious decision to make a change in his career from a Sufi teacher to a poet. Here the medium is truly the message: the most successful Sufi teacher of all times with countless devoted followers chooses to communicate through the path of poetry. This masterful poet combines philosophy, mysticism, and psychology in a language so piercing as to enter the realm of music. It is this element more than any other which has made Rumi&#39;s poetry so irresistible to readers for over seven hundred years, even through the fire of translation." The United Nations designated 2007 as the year of Rumi - a singular distinction for this 13th century Persian poet. He has, in recent years, been the best-selling poet in the United States. & Fran Siegel, currently a Professor of Drawing and Painting at California State University Long Beach, graduated from Yale with an MFA and Temple&#39;s Tyler School of Art. She has had numerous solo exhibitions, as well as group shows, and was the US Representative at the IX International Bienal of Cuenca Ecuador. Her collaboration with Vincent FitzGerald & Company results in an astonishing book. The other collaborators include Kelly Driscoll, who created the art for FRAGMENTS OF LIGHT II and Milgo Bufkin (stainless steel base) who has worked with well- known visual artists such as Ellsworth Kelly and Robert Indiana. Well- known printer and book designer, Jerry Kelly, has worked with FitzGerald for over 25 years, helping produce very beautiful books. The Dieu Donne paper used for this book is incredibly strong and yet translucent. Mr. FitzGerald, once again, has assumed the role of "Maestro" for these individual performers, leading and coordinating their elegant performance for our benefit. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10235.jpg >Image.</A><br>

She has been represented by art galleries across the U.S, and her work can be found in many corporate collections. In her artist&#39;s statement she says: "I build book and box forms with traditional bookbinding materials and methods. These sculptural objects contain my own pastel drawings and imagery generated from my own photographs. The stories they tell are contained in my words and the poetry of Kevin McCue. My subjects are the allure of the horizon, the power of the land, the experience of loss, and the sweetness of redemption." This exceptional book object comprises three individual parts. There is a small illustrated book with short poems that rests open on a box stand. The book and stand are covered by a box with a glass window on the top. Each object has been meticulously and creatively designed and produced using Ms. Torgerson&#39;s art, photography, and writing. The book is 3 inches wide x 4 inches tall x 3.5 inches thick. The poems are printed on vellum paper and coated with shellac, and the images are printed on various interesting papers. The book is bound in silver cloth with silver metal medallions on the front and back, and black and white beads around the edges. The spine is of brown suede and also has small beads sewn on. The book rests in a cradle at the top of its box stand. The stand is 5 inches tall and 9 x 10 inches at the base. The cradle is covered in green/gold cloth and decorated paper. There are the same small beads which are seen on the book cover, and there is also a medallion in the middle. The sides of the box have beautiful landscape images which are printed on Yupo synthetic material and waxed. The box base has two levels, one covered in orange cloth and the other with cloth in a gold and black design. The cover is 8 inches x 9 inches x 9 inches. The top and base are covered in decorated cloth. Each side is covered in brown cloth and has a landscape image printed on Yupo synthetic material and waxed. It has a window on top which allows one to look in at the book. This singular, stunning book object perfectly reflects Ms. Torgerson&#39;s creativity and artistry. In fine condition.

Further Studies of the Problem of Endemicity" in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London A 141, 1933

      Three volume landmark series of papers providing the first mathematical analysis of epidemics as well as &#147;the first mathematical model that could be used to describe an influenza epidemic&#148; (Coburn, &#147;Modeling influenza,&#148; BMC Medicine, 7, 2009, 1741). &#147;Mathematical modeling of epidemics goes back to 1927 with the formulation of [these] classical equations&#148; Lewis, Network Science, 8.1.1). The Kermack-McKendrick model is known as the Susceptible-Infections-Recovered (SIR) model and is used to depict the number of people infected with a contagious illness in a closed population over time. To simulate an influenza epidemic the model, Kermack and McKendrick developed the pioneering threshold theorem that enables the interval between epidemics and their size to be studied. &#147;According to this, the introduction of infectious cases into a community of susceptibles would not give rise to an epidemic if the density of susceptibles was below a certain critical value. Once the critical value was exceeded, then there would be an epidemic of magnitude sufficient to reduce the density of susceptibles as far below the threshold as it originally was above&#148; (Cliff, Deciphering Global Epidemics, 26). [Kermack and McKendrick&#146;s] SIR model has been used as a basis for all subsequent influenza models&#148; (Lewis). Furthermore, beyond influenza models, &#147;most modern mathematical epidemiology&#148; is based on these classic papers (Watts, Six Degrees, 332). CONDITION & DETAILS: Three volume 4to. 10 x 7 inches (250 x 175mm). Ex-libris: Small library stamps on front and rear end papers (IBM Research Laboratories); no other library markings whatsoever.

        The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun, Signed Limited Numbered Super Deluxe Edition

      London: Harper Collins, 2009. De Luxe Edition. Full-Leather. Bill Sanderson. Signed by Editor. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun, The number 88 of 500 of the UK Signed Limited Numbered Super Deluxe Edition, published by Harper Collins in 2009, the first publication of a previously unknown work by J.R.R. Tolkien. Copy number 88, edited and signed by his son, Christopher Tolkien, to the Limitation Notice. The story tells the epic story of the Norse hero Sigurd the dragon slayer, the revenge of his wife, Gudrun, and the Fall of the Niflungs. From the publisher&#39;s release statement, "Many years ago, J.R.R. Tolkien composed his own version, now published for the first time, of the great legend of Northern antiquity, in two closely related poems to which he gave the titles The New Lay of the Volsungs and The New Lay of Gudrun. In the Lay of the Volsungs is told the ancestry of the great hero Sigurd, the slayer of Fafnir most celebrated of dragons, whose treasure he took for his own; of his awakening of the Valkyrie Brynhild who slept surrounded by a wall of fire, and of their betrothal; and of his coming to the court of the great princes who were named the Niflungs (or Nibelungs), with whom he entered into blood-brotherhood. In that court there sprang great love but also great hate, brought about by the power of the enchantress, mother of the Niflungs, skilled in the arts of magic, of shape-changing and potions of forgetfulness. In scenes of dramatic intensity, of confusion of identity, thwarted passion, jealousy and bitter strife, the tragedy of Sigurd and Brynhild, of Gunnar the Niflung and Gudrun his sister, mounts to its end in the murder of Sigurd at the hands of his blood-brothers, the suicide of Brynhild, and the despair of Gudrun. In the Lay of Gudrun her fate after the death of Sigurd is told, her marriage against her will to the mighty Atli, ruler of the Huns (the Attila of history), his murder of her brothers the Niflung lords, and her hideous revenge. Deriving his version primarily from his close study of the ancient poetry of Norway and Iceland known as the Poetic Edda (and where no old poetry exists, from the later prose work the Volsunga Saga), J.R.R. Tolkien employed a verse-form of short stanzas whose lines embody in English the exacting alliterative rhythms and the concentrated energy of the poems of the Edda." -- Christopher Tolkien. Features a color frontispiece of a facsimile page from J.R.R. Tolkien&#39;s original manuscript. Fully bound in Brown Leather with matching full leather clamshell case, stamped in gold foil with a unique motif of Sigurd&#39;s horse, Grani. Printed on superior quality paper and including a silk ribbon marker sewn into the textblock. Matches the recently released UK Signed Limited Numbered Super Deluxe Edition of The Children of Hurin. Digital photo&#39;s available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. As New / No Jacket, as Issued.

        Notebook for a Transformation

      [New York. 2009]. Unique artist&#39;s book / wall hanging with bas-relief sculpture and manuscript notebook, collaged with images and text on each page, signed, with the title and date, by the artist / author on the back of bar from which the notebook hangs, "Sandra Jackman." Size: total dimensions of piece are 11 x 11.25 inches, about 2.5 inches deep; the notebook itself is 4 x 6 inches and including covers has 22pp. all of which have been painted and / or collaged. Bound: purchased spiral-bound notebook covered with hand-made paper and collaged with found materials on the front and painted gold with green and yellow on the back, suspended from a wood bar which had been painted and collaged and serves as base for white paper collage of head of angel / demon, with dried pieces suspended from other side of bar in beaded netting. While the bar has mounts on the reverse to facilitate hanging, it is also housed in a black cloth over boards fold- open box measuring 13 x 12 x 3 inches. The text is troubling. A fragment reads, "None the wiser each side dies believing in the sign..." and we understand that religious fanaticism has caused endless pain and destruction throughout human history. Images are not overt. Well-known religious paintings are covered, mutated, transformed, as is the message of goodness and love that marks most of the world&#39;s religions when fanaticism takes over. Disturbingly compelling, this angel and it&#39;s book are spectacular. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10614.jpg >Image.</A><br>

A digitized version of Open Romulus has been used on the title-page and is printed from a line block. The page design, by David Vickers, echoes the large paper format of the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries, and the book is printed by him on a special making of Zerkall mould-made paper. Hilary Paynter&#39;s wood engravings are printed direct from the original woodblocks, 222pp, 245X350mm.Bound by John Sewell to a design by Hilary Paynter.

His publications include two volumes on German Romanticism and books on the hymn-writer Williams Pantycelyn and, in Welsh, the poet Islwyn.HILARY PAYNTER was instrumental in the revival of the Society of Wood Engravers in the early 1980s, for over three decades. In 2006, she was elected President of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. Her sixteen engravings for The Romantics in Wales (ten of which are full-page) combine acute and subtle observation, complete mastery of technique and, on occasion, captivating imaginative re-creation, as in a vision of the Shelleys&#39; home at Cwm Elan, now under the waters of the reservoir. Other views include Pistyll Rhaeadr, Plas Newydd and Dinas Bran, Snowdonia, Symonds Yat, Tintern Abbey, Valle Crucis, and the castles at Caernarfon, Chepstow and Raglan.

        Elements in Correlation: Printing with the Handpress at Heavenly Monkey

      Vancouver, British Columbia: Heavenly Monkey Press, 2009. Leather Bound. Limited Edition, one of forty numbered copies. Quarto. 39pp, [1], [iv]. Printed damp on a Washington hand-press, using Dante and Dante Titling in two colors on HM Text paper made b Reg Lissel special for this project. Quarter-bound in gilt-stamped morocco and paste-paper over boards (created specially for this project) by Claudia Cohen. A Fine copy, as New. // "Rather than a manual concerned with how to print damp, the text draws on sources such as Eric Gill, Porter Garnett, William Everson and Harry Duncan to focus on why. The essay that forms the core of the bulk - the discussion of damp printing - focuses on how changes in printing methods and materials over the past century are (and are not) reflected in contemporary letterpress publishing. Differences in printing techniques (primarily the results of dry vs damp) will be demonstrated, augmented by four sample leaves spanning four centuries interspersed through the essay: one sample of early printing ( &#39;Praestantium Ac Eruditorum Vivorvm Epistoae Et Theologoicae, Henriuvm Dendrinvm&#39;, Amsterdam 1670); a leaf from a mid-19th century book that combined steelpoint illustration with (dry) letterpress on a coated "art paper" of the period (&#39;Poems&#39; by Jean Ingelow, Longmans, Green, Reader, & Dyer, London 1867); a leaf from a book printed damp under Bruce Rogers&#39; direction at the Riverside Press (&#39;Urne-Buriall, or A Discourse of the Sepulchrall Urnes&#39; lately found in Norfolk by Sir Thomas Browne, 1907); and a leaf from a book printed dry on handmade paper (&#39;Gold: Its Properties, Modes Of Extraction, Values, &c., &c.&#39; by F. G. Claudet, Robert Reid & Takao Tanabe 1958). &#39;Elements in Correlation&#39; also includes a revised version of papermaker Reg Lissel&#39;s profile that originally appeared in Parenthesis (accompanied by a newly commissioned linocut portrait of Reg by Andrea Taylor); a brief concluding chapter on the influence of the Doves Press (previously published as You Can&#39;t Choose Your Progeny, HM 2008); and a full bibliography." ~ from the publisher.

        Keeping Time

      [New York. 2009]. Artist&#39;s book, one of 15 copies, all on Tosa Washi paper, each signed and numbered by the artist / author, Sarah Plimpton. Page size: 15-5/8 x 11- 7/8 inches; plus letterpress printed text of poem on small sheet 6-3/8 x 5- 3/8 inches. 10pp. Bound: loose in grey paper wrappers and housed in grey custom-made cloth over boards clamshell box by Claudia Cohen, label printed in gold gilt on paper on spine with title and author&#39;s name. The book was set in Filosophia type and printed letterpress by Brad Ewing at The Grenfell Press. There are 10 reduction woodcuts printed in several shades of grey, black, magenta, blue, brown and chartreuse. The text reads, "the sky is black on one side / keeping time / where the clouds disappear / crossing out the sun / one hand is up / to point / the horizon is too far / to see" and is beautifully enfolded and set in motion by the abstract yet tangible forms that sweep across the pages. & By using reduction woodcuts, the artist has used the image medium, and images themselves, to restate her words. Reduction woodcuts involve working with a single block, printing a color, cutting more of the block and printing this new reduced image over the first print, and so on. Despite the technical challenges of reduction woodcuts, she has succeeded in creating motion from a static medium. Her images are "keeping time" on page after page as we feel the sweep of the moving sky. This is Ms. Plimpton&#39;s ability for bringing the natural world to human grasp again manifest. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10279.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        In The Distance

      Eugenie Torgerson Niles, MI: Eugenie Torgerson, 2009. UNIQUE ARTISTS' BOOK. Eugenie Torgerson is a book artist, photographer, printer, and illustrator from Michigan. She has been represented by art galleries across the U.S, and her work can be found in many corporate collections. In her artist's statement she says: "I build book and box forms with traditional bookbinding materials and methods. These sculptural objects contain my own pastel drawings and imagery generated from my own photographs. The stories they tell are contained in my words and the poetry of Kevin McCue. My subjects are the allure of the horizon, the power of the land, the experience of loss, and the sweetness of redemption." This exceptional book object comprises three individual parts. There is a small illustrated book with short poems that rests open on a box stand. The book and stand are covered by a box with a glass window on the top. Each object has been meticulously and creatively designed and produced using Ms. Torgerson's art, photography, and writing. The book is 3 inches wide x 4 inches tall x 3.5 inches thick. The poems are printed on vellum paper and coated with shellac, and the images are printed on various interesting papers. The book is bound in silver cloth with silver metal medallions on the front and back, and black and white beads around the edges. The spine is of brown suede and also has small beads sewn on. The book rests in a cradle at the top of its box stand. The stand is 5 inches tall and 9 x 10 inches at the base. The cradle is covered in green/gold cloth and decorated paper. There are the same small beads which are seen on the book cover, and there is also a medallion in the middle. The sides of the box have beautiful landscape images which are printed on Yupo synthetic material and waxed.
