        Chimneys of Burano

      Berkeley, California:: Gail Skoff,, 2010.. Edition of 7. 11 x 15"; 18 pages including pastedowns. Double-sided accordion book. Images printed on Moab Entrada Rag Natural paper by The Lightroom. Text letterpress printed by Patricia Curtan. Bound by John DeMerritt. Bookbinding paper over boards with tipped on chimney images. Housed in clamshell box with titles stamped in gilt on spine and cover. Boards and box covered in handmade paper by Cave Papers. Gail Skoff: "I consider this book a circle book, because as you start reading and looking at the images you can turn it over and continue the viewing on the reverse side, and end up at the title page again. "I first visited the island of Burano in 2007. I was coming from Murano and was en route to Torcello, islands in the Venetian lagoon, where I had been photographing mosaics in ancient churches. I stepped off the vaporetto on a whim and fell in love with the vibrant colors of the village, which were unlike anything I had seen in the area. The brightly painted houses were a complete contrast to the tiny mosaic patterns I had been photographing and looked like children's building blocks in bold bright colors. I grew fascinated by the time-weathered buildings, and by the chimney's sculptural forms. They showed their colors vividly, uninterrupted by windows and doorways. "Local legend has it that Burano's fishermen chose to paint their homes contrasting colors so they would be able to recognize them from the sea.

        Clematis

      Portland, Maine:: Rebecca Goodale,, 2010.. Edition of 5. 8.375 x 27.25" closed, extends to 82". Cutouts and pop-up structure. Handcolored silkscreen prints. Bound in cloth with ribbon tie closures. Title tipped on cover. Signed and numbered by the artist. By using the top blue loop (one of the ribbon tie closures), the book can be hung vertically for a cascading display. Clematis continues Goodale's Threatened and Endangered series in a broad sense. Clematis has been classified as a rare plant by the state of Maine. Their first two classifications for plants are those that are imperiled, which are the plants that Goodale usually includes in her series. The rare classification indicates the lack of sightings in Maine (20-100 occurrences). Rebecca Goodale: "My newest book is a tall, cascading book representing the genus Clematis. I drew from two plants, one was Maine's rare Clematis occidentalis. The other was Clematis alpina, which I drew while visiting Montana in June 2010. In both species the blossoms are the color of the sky and look as flecks of the sky are present in the dense shadows of the undergrowth.

        Walking Up and Down in Asia

      San Francisco:: Pettingell Book Bindery / Art Hazelwood,, 2010.. Edition of 10. 16 x 18"; 72 pages. Sixty woodcuts printed by the artist on Masa paper in editions varying in size from 25 to 50 of which numbers 11 - 20 were bound by the artist in a hand-sewn hardcover book format. Prints tipped onto Arches cover text paper. Each print numbered, titled, and signed. Art Hazelwood: "From 1986 to 1993 I traveled around the world, living in Europe and Asia and in various parts of the States. My primary interest however was traveling in Asia. The intensity of travel lured me on to see more and more. Experiences of people and places left their mark and I have tried to give back some of that feeling. The Tibetan nomads, Vietnamese 'cyclo' drivers, Japanese 'salary man,' Sikhs, Thais, and Uygurs that make up this series are the actors on an impossibly crowded world stage. It is this sometimes overwhelming encounter with the world that these prints seek to express."Prints in this series include images of the following countries: China, Tibet, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, India, and Pakistan. The production of this entire series makes up a period of 14 years from first trip to bound book, although the body of the prints were cut in the mid to late 90's."Berin Golonu, Artweek July/August Edition 2000, 'Review of Walking Up and Down in Asia': "When people embark on their travels, they often record their adventures in snapshots or in travel journals. Art Hazelwood has taken a more time-honored approach to recording the memories of his travels throughout Asia. After sketching his observations on drawing pads, Hazelwood creates woodcuts of his impressions in a graphic folk style. Flattened perspectives give added emphasis to an allover patterning, with crowded compositions that fill every square inch of the picture frame. Hazelwood's dynamic genre scenes and landscapes at once emphasize the frenetic activity of a dense urban metropolis such as Tokyo or Hong Kong, while at the same time, capturing the more leisurely way of life led by the region's rural inhabitants."The artist first traveled to China in 1986, and has since developed somewhat of a love affair with Asia, having revisited the continent extensively over the past fourteen years. More than sixty woodcuts comprise Hazelwood's Asia series, on view at the Fetterly Gallery in Vallejo. The artist's enchantment with this region of the world and its people comes through in his images, which record travels in China, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, India and Pakistan. Such sentiments prove to be infectious, for in looking at Hazelwood's woodcuts, we cannot help but be tempted to partake in a similar journey by following the artist's travel routes."

        LEN-DONG

      San Francisco, California:: Howard Munson,, 2010.. Edition of 2. 8 x 11.25" closed, 72.5" extended. Accordion structure. Pop-up frontispiece. Includes DVD. Lenox 100% rag printmaking paper. Bound in Korean silk. Matching slipcase. Howard Munson: "I was a guest with Arnold Iger and Paul Kwan at a temple in San Francisco Victorian House, which has since burned down. The ritual consisted of a woman who would go into many trances becoming various spirit gods. They ranged from princess, kings, and warriors. Along with the traditional live Vietnamese music, there was also much sharing of food and drink." Leslie Evans, "Spirit Possession Religions and Popular Rituals Flourish in Vietnam" (posted 6/8/2004 on the UCLA Center for Asian Studies website): "One of the largest and most widespread of the belief systems is Dao Mau, the Mother Goddess religion. One of its central practices is the Len Dong spirit possession ritual, where spirit mediums channel various gods and goddesses connected to the cult. When in trance for communication with the other world, the mediums don a red veil which facilitates manifestation of the spirit in their bodies."The Len Dong 'going into trance' ritual, despite its otherworldly trappings, is generally sought out by petitioners to achieve very down-to-earth goals: a good business, a better job, curing a health condition, or passing university entrance exam."The photographs of the ceremony were taken by Munson then reproduced for the artist book. The video of the ceremony on DVD was produced by Paul Kwan and Arnold Iger. Persona Grad Productions: "Arnold Iger and Paul Kwan are co-founders of Persona Grata Productions, an interdisciplinary production company based in San Francisco, that create videos, theatrical performances, and art exhibitions. The duo directed, produced and wrote ANATOMY OF A SPRINGROLL, PINS AND NOODLES and A WOK IN PROGRESS (A Springroll Family Trilogy). They have won awards from the American Film Institute, National Endowments for the Arts, California Arts Council, National Asian American Telecommunications Association, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, San Francisco Arts Commission, San Francisco Grants for the Arts, and the Independent Television Service.

        Retroviruses

      Intl Specialized Book Service Inc, 2010. Hardcover. New. Retroviruses comprise a diverse family of enveloped RNA viruses, remarkable for their use of reverse transcription of viral RNA into linear double stranded DNA during replication and the subsequent integration of this DNA into the genome of the host cell. Members of this family include important pathogens such as HIV-1, feline leukemia, and several cancer-causing viruses. However interest in these viruses extends beyond their disease causing capabilities. For example, research in this area led to the discovery of oncogenes, a major advance in the field of cancer genetics. Studies of retroviruses have contributed greatly to our understanding of mechanisms that regulate eukaryotic gene expression. In addition retroviruses are proving to be valuable research tools in molecular biology and have been used successfully in gene therapy (e.g. to treat X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency). Written by the top retroviral specialists, this book reviews the genomics, molecular biology, and pathogenesis of these important viruses, comprehensively covering all the recent advances. Topics include: host and retroelement interactions, endogenous retroviruses, retroviral proteins and genomes, viral entry and uncoating, reverse transcription and integration, transcription, splicing and RNA transport, pathogenesis of oncoviral infections, pathogenesis of immunodeficiency virus infections, retroviral restriction factors molecular vaccines and correlates of protection, gammaretroviral and lentiviral vectors, non-primatemammalian and fish retroviruses, simian exogenous retroviruses, and HTLV and HIV"--Publisher's description.SKU: MM-20380971; EAN: 9781904455554

        Folklore

      Abc-Clio Inc, 2010. 2. Hardcover. New. From the Publisher: Did you know that the tale of Cinderella is over 1,000 years old, and similar versions of this singular story exist in hundreds of cultures around the globe? Have you heard of "deathlore," a subgenre of folklore involving tombstones,coffins, cemeteries, and roadside memorial shrines? Did you realize that UFO sightings and cyber cultures constitute modern folklore? The broad field of folklore studies, developed over the past two centuries, provides significant insights into many aspects of human culture. While the term "folklore" conjures images of ancient practices and beliefs or folk heroes and traditional stories, it also applies to today's ever-changing cultural landscape. Even certain aspects of modern Internet-based popularculture and contemporary rites of passage represent folklore. This encyclopedia covers all the major genres of both ancient and contemporary folklore. This second edition adds more than 100 entries that examine the folklore practices of major ethnic groups, folk heroes, creatures of myth and legend, and emerging areas of interest in folklore studies.SKU: MM-20534327; EAN: 9781598842418

MJ Linford: "Tools have always been fascinating to me, and I think I would have liked to be a woodworker. My father was a carpenter, and brought me up to respect tools. He had many bits of advice that he passed on over the years, and I?'ve learned a lot from those words of wisdom (?'measure once, cut twice?' [sic] most of all). I enjoyed looking up the definitions for each of the tools, and adding my own alternate definitions as well. I learned a lot about what works and what doesn?'t work in paper engineering while trying to get the drill bit to spin, the saw to make noise, the tape measure to snap back in, etc."

        Raising the Supine Dome

      [Orange, Massachusetts / Hanover, New Hampshire]:: Amy Borezo,, 2010.. Edition of 20. 7.75 x 11.25 x 1.75"; 14 pages. Accordion structure. Printed on 100% rag Holyoke Fine Paper. Hand-set 14 pt Caslon metal type for text. Title in Futura. Images printed using photopolymer plates. Laser cut figures. Paper covered boards. Housed in linen covered clamshell box. Each page consists of two printed sheets glued back to back, creating a thick, rigid panel that stands on its own. A continuous sheet of tyvek runs between the pages that form the panels, acting as a hinge. Amy Borezo, catalog: "The artist's book Raising the Supine Dome depicts the visionary architect Buckminster Fuller's first attempt to construct a geodesic dome with a class of students at the experimental school, Black Mountain College, in 1948. The actual construction was a failure because the dome did not rise, but Fuller saw each failure as a way of getting closer to true understanding. The book presents the event as a stripped down, schematic tableau of figures on a white field amidst sinuous red strips of construction material, emphasizing the beauty and poetry of the failed event. The red lines become drawings in space, sprawling and expressive, unwilling to coalesce into the tidy geometry of Fuller's built universe. The figures attempting to erect the dome are physically cut out of the paper, revealing a triangular grid beneath, representing the point at which individuals lose their unique characteristics when working together as a group toward a specific goal. The text contained within the book is a found poem, taken from a variety of primary sources and edited, altered and combined to give the reader a sense of time and place as well as a basic narrative of the event. The writings of Buckminster Fuller and excerpts from the poem about Fuller 'The Praises' by Charles Olson combine with anecdotes from Fuller's class at Black Mountain by Elaine de Kooning. The text is placed along the bottom edge of the book in a subtle and sloping downward arc, echoing the shape of the supine dome that refuses to arc upward. The accordion book's stiff leaves can be paged through as a codex or can stand upright and extend out fully and be viewed from both sides as the play of light and shadow interacts with the cut figures.

In the classical world such pricks from a dart of Eros were called Theia Mania (madness of the gods). "Heidi Zednik and I began by collecting audio version of stories told by those willing to participate in the project. We recorded 12 such stories and these are the basis for both the text and audio portions of this piece. Two of the stories I wished to include could not be told by their subjects, so I wrote my own versions, presented as oral presentations on the CD.

        Buenos Aires: Portfolio

      Buenos Aires, Argentina:: Ediciones Urania,, 2010.. Edition of 5. 15.5 x 13 x 1.25" acrylic case containing 23 original lambda prints. Includes an index with images and titles, a certificate of edition, and an explanatory text written as introduction for the exhibition. Housed in a velvet zippered case.Ral Veroni: "This series of 23 lambda prints reflects on this city of immigrants and their daily struggle for survival. "For this project, made during 2000 and 2001, Veroni resorted to the strategy of the flaneur [stroller]: long walks around town with no predetermined aim, taking photographs and notes about this unique city, its architecture, and its neighborhoods."The insertion of emblematic figures representing time, destiny, desire, etc in the cityscape create a subtle mix of metaphors. These images not only refer to the ups and downs of human existence but also, depending on the landmarks where these symbols are placed, to the complex political and social problems of his own country."Titles such as Bone and the Multinationals, Time the first worker, and The Hammer walking Past Homero Manzi Corner suggest, respectively, economical, political, and cultural comments turning to the memory and the complicity of the city’s inhabitants.Samples of the prints: El paso del Martillo por la esquina Homero Manzi (Lambda Print - 22 x 18 cm – 2001): Homero Manzi was one of the most renowned poets of tango. For many decades the old corner cafe honored the memory of the poet. At the time this photo was taken the cafe had closed and was being demolished. Currently a distinguished confectionery continues the place and name.Tiempo, el primer trabajador (Lambda Print - 22 x 18 cm – 2001): Peronist marching lyrics include "You are the first worker," referring to Member Number 1 of the Labor Party, who was Peron himself. Here Time, a Veroni creation, represents for another kind of leader. Original photographs were taken with a Canon 135. At the time Veroni was living in Scotland so wondered through Buenos Aires like a tourist with the camera hanging from his neck. The symbolic entities inserted in the pictures were originally modeled as sculptures in the artist's studio in Saint George Street, Glasgow.

        Gregory Crewdson: Sanctuary

      Hatje Cantz Verlag, 2010.. 96 Seiten Gebundene Ausgabe. Neu; ungelesen - Schutzumschlag leicht berieben! Versandfertig am nächsten Tag; Rechnung mit MwSt. liegt bei! Gregory Crewdson, der Großmeister rätselhaft verdichteter Fotoinszenierungen hat ein neues Sujet gefunden: die römische Cinecitta Auf einer Reise nach Rom besuchte Gregory Crewdson (*1962 in New York) die italienische Filmstadt Cinecitta, wo einst die Meisterwerke von Frederico Fellini und Roberto Rossellini entstanden. Crewdson fand heruntergekommene Szenerien vor, die sich langsam in Ruinen verwandelten, und war von der zerfallenden Pracht fasziniert. Er wusste sofort, er hatte sein nächstes Projekt gefunden. Bislang waren Crewdsons Serien enorm aufwendig und erforderten große Produktionsteams, eigens gebaute Filmateliers und professionelle Schauspieler. Nun aber kehrte er nur mit einem kleinen Team zurück und arbeitete für seine eindringlichen schwarz-weiß Aufnahmen zerbröckelnder Fassaden und verlassener Straßen vorwiegend mit natürlichem Licht. All dies bedeutet jedoch nicht wirklich einen Bruch zu Crewdsons früheren Serien, denn der dramatische Subtext seiner Bilder, das unheimliche Gefühl, dass in ihnen die Vergangenheit wieder zum Leben erweckt wird, findet sich auch hier.

        Intranguilo/On Edge Translated by Jonathan Pitcher

      Alstead, New Hampshire:: Bird Press,, 2010.. Edition of 40. 11.125 x 15"; 52 pages. Letterpress printed on Arches Velin papers. Digital printing by Derek Cracco at Ink to Paper in Birmingham, Alabama, on Kitakata paper. Drawings printed from lithographic stones at the Frans Masereel Center in Belgium at Corridor Press in Otego, New York and one image was printed at Bennington College, Vermont. Text in English and Spanish. Bound in cloth over boards with illustration tipped on front board. Jorge Accame, Prologue:"In September 2005, I met Thorsten Dennerline by chance during a residency at the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire. We immediately hit it off. He spoke a fair amount of Spanish; I, some English, and with limited resources we understood that we had similar ideas on life and art. ... We soon realized that we could do a project together. We threw a few ideas on the table, and landed on this one one: to tell a short story together in words and images. . At least two risks presented themselves: first, we wanted to avoid slipping into an illustrated text; images and words should contribute to the furthering of the action, without repeating themselves or getting in each other's way. Thorsten then proposed starting the story with an image, I responded with words, to which Thorsten answered with another image, and so on up until the end. Because of this alternating, we had to be careful to maintain the thread of the story and the continuity of our narration." "Halfway through, I had the impression that the story was heading in a clearer direction. I sensed that it could be about the night before Gregor Samsa changes into an insect. From that moment of suspect certainty we tightened its reins. Both forwards and backwards." Jonathan Pitcher, translator, is a scholar of Latin American literature, philosophy, and history. He joined the Bennington faculty of the Isabelle Kaplan Center for Languages and Culture in fall 2004. Jorge Accame is a writer and playwright. He was born in Buenos Aires but since 1982 has lived in the city of San Salvador de Jujuy, where he works as a lecturer in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Thorsten Dennerline is a printmaker-artist, who creates works in various media including drawing, printmaking, editioned books, and ceramics. He has worked on numerous collaborative projects with writers and poets. His work is narrative and deals with the interaction of text and image.

        Buenos Aires: Portfolio

      Buenos Aires, Argentina:: Ediciones Urania,, 2010.. Edition of 5. 15.5 x 13 x 1.25" acrylic case containing 23 original lambda prints. Includes an index with images and titles, a certificate of edition, and an explanatory text written as introduction for the exhibition. Housed in a velvet zippered case. Ral Veroni: "This series of 23 lambda prints reflects on this city of immigrants and their daily struggle for survival. "For this project, made during 2000 and 2001, Veroni resorted to the strategy of the flaneur [stroller]: long walks around town with no predetermined aim, taking photographs and notes about this unique city, its architecture, and its neighborhoods. "The insertion of emblematic figures representing time, destiny, desire, etc in the cityscape create a subtle mix of metaphors. These images not only refer to the ups and downs of human existence but also, depending on the landmarks where these symbols are placed, to the complex political and social problems of his own country. "Titles such as Bone and the Multinationals, Time the first worker, and The Hammer walking Past Homero Manzi Corner suggest, respectively, economical, political, and cultural comments turning to the memory and the complicity of the city?'s inhabitants. Samples of the prints: El paso del Martillo por la esquina Homero Manzi (Lambda Print - 22 x 18 cm ?- 2001): Homero Manzi was one of the most renowned poets of tango. For many decades the old corner cafe honored the memory of the poet. At the time this photo was taken the cafe had closed and was being demolished. Currently a distinguished confectionery continues the place and name. Tiempo, el primer trabajador (Lambda Print - 22 x 18 cm ?- 2001): Peronist marching lyrics include "You are the first worker," referring to Member Number 1 of the Labor Party, who was Peron himself. Here Time, a Veroni creation, represents for another kind of leader. Original photographs were taken with a Canon 135. At the time Veroni was living in Scotland so wondered through Buenos Aires like a tourist with the camera hanging from his neck. The symbolic entities inserted in the pictures were originally modeled as sculptures in the artist's studio in Saint George Street, Glasgow.

"Esther Williams was my hero growing up on Long Island Sound. I would see each of her movies and try to relive the fabulous water ballet sequences with my girlfriends. These past few years I have been swimming in a beautiful Olympic outdoor pool at the Y in Mission Valley. There are no sharks or seaweed as in my beloved La Jolla Cove. In the pool, palm trees and dappled light line my lanes of thought, perhaps an elephant or two.

        SOLAR - Limited Leatherbound And Slipcased Edition

      London, England: Jonathan Cape, 2010 - 1st Printing. Signed. 285 pages. Published in 2010. The author's eleventh novel. Limited Leatherbound And Slipcased Edition of 100 numbered and signed copies. Should not be confused with all other editions of the book that were released simultaneously with it. Precedes all other subsequent editions. The Limited Edition sold out upon publication and is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Jonathan Cape: Regular-sized volume format. Black leather boards with "solar"-red design embossed on the cover and matching red titles embossed on the spine, as issued. Text by Ian McEwan. Marbled endpapers. Black satin ribbon marker. Matching cloth slipcase with "solar"-red design on both sides. Printed on very thick archival stock paper in the United Kingdom to the very highest standards. In publisher's original paper wrappers. Without DJ, as issued. Presents the most collectible edition of Ian McEwan's "environmental" novel. The latter marks a return to his early satirical vein, as he eviscerates the academic and scientific establishments through one of his most memorably repulsive characters ever, Nobel Laureate Michael Beard. He fuses the satire with the scientific quest for alternative energies, the perfect metaphor for our time, as we try to find our way out of crises and predicaments internal and external. "McEwan's background research is so seamlessly displayed that scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, busy working on the same topic, might wonder if he's nicked their notes" (Time Magazine). "Blending domestic satire with scientific inquiry, nods to concerns both personal and planetary in a tone that is at once ironic and heartfelt. It is exquisitely and defiantly McEwan-esque. Accept no imitations" (The Spectator). "McEwan is one of the finest literary storytellers alive. He implants in the memory a living, flaming presence" (The New Republic). An absolute "must-have" edition for Ian McEwan collectors. This copy is Number 49, indicated as such on the Front Limitation Page, and is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Ian McEwan. This edition is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies still available online, is still in the publisher's original paper wrappers, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Somerset Maugham Award in 1976. Winner of the Booker Prize in 1998 for "Amsterdam". Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in 2002 for "Atonement". One of the greatest living writers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER IAN MCEWAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0224091077. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
