Notations of Value, Introduction: "A brief look at the concept of 'value' through the eyes of a 19th century bank ledger filled with male names and images taken from the photographs of a 20th century woman. "Stitching and motherhood seemingly define the woman while the making & recording of money apparently defines the male." Gail Smuda: "This oversize book has pages made from a 19th century ledger ?- hence the size. I noticed that the names were all those of men and overlaid those pages with images stitched unto fiber that were taken from photographs of my mother over the years when I was quite young. Whose ideas create 'value' and how do they differ for men and women?

        Intimes Retraits.

      Verdigris Press, Octon, France 2011 - Artist's book, one of 36 copies, from a total issue of 40, (4 deluxe) all on Hahnemulhe paper, each copy signed by the artist, Judith Rothchild and initialed by the author in pencil, as is the numbering. Page size: 6-1/4 x 8-1/4 inches; 20pp; printed on 5 folios. Bound: loose as issued, housed in grey wrappers printed in black, the whole in custom-made burgundy paper over boards sleeve and slipcase, title, author, artist, and press printed in black on spine. Each copy of this lovely book as four interior scenes printed as mezzotints by Ms. Rothchild. Seemingly a simple series of interiors, accompanied by words about the spaces, it is a very powerful "aide-memoire" - visualizing and verbalizing the power of rooms and the objects therein, bathed in their own peculiar light - to elicit memories / sensations all but forgotten. The artist tells us that the images were made from drawings at a friend's apartment. The parents of her friend established a bilingual journal in Paris, creating a literary circle with included Henry Miller and Lawrence Durrell. The poet, Frederique Temple, developed a friendship with the publishers from this time and it endures through an almost familial relationship with their daughter, the artist's friend, whose apartment is depicted.The text is hand set in Vendome romain and printed letterpress by Mark Lintott, who also made the clamshell boxes. Each of the folios has been marbled in a most subtle shade of grey - delicate and yet full of life with swirls compelling one to open the folio to the mezzotint on the verso. This is a very beautiful book - elegant and restrained - just what one has come to expect from Judith Rothchild and Mark Lintott. See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Complex Macromolecular Architectures

      Wiley-Blackwell, 2011. Hardcover. New. Despite very active research activities in the field of CMA, there lacks a simple-to-read book for researchers and students interested in these new developments. In each chapter, current progress in the area of the synthesis, characterization, and self-assemblies of well-defined complex macromolecular architectures is reviewed by each contributor with relevant emphasis on their research topics. The architectural polymers include bio-conjugated hybrid polymers with poly(-amino acid)s and gluco-polymers, star-branched and dendrimer-like hyperbranched polymers, cyclic polymers, dendrigraft polymers, rod-coil and helix-coil block copolymers are introduced chapter by chapter in the book. In particular, the book also emphasizes the topic of synthetic breakthroughs by living/controlled polymerization since 2000. Newly developed concepts and procedures, such as "Click" chemistry, chain walking, polyhomologation and ADMET are also highlighted. Furthermore, renowned authors contribute on such special topicsas helical polyisocyanates, metallopolymers, stereospecific polymers, hydrogen-bonded supramolecular polymers, conjugated polymers, and polyrotaxanes, which have attracted considerable interest as novel polymer materials with potential future applications. In addition, recent advances in reactive blending achieved with well-defined end-functionalized polymers is discussed from an industrial point of view. Moreover, topics on polymer-based nanotechnologies, including self-assembled architectures and suprastructures, nano-structured materials and devices, nanofabrication, surface nanostructures, and their AFM imaging analysis of hetero-phased polymers are included"--SKU: MM-60129922; EAN: 9780470825136

        Burning Me Open

      Lake City, Colorado:: ravenpress,, 2011.. Edition of 18. 5 x 3 x 2.75" closed, opens to 6.25" circle; 9 leaves. Laser cut and etched images. Bound in purple heart wood boards. Copper leaf title label on front board. Alicia Bailey, Prospectus: "Concept: This book takes the text and imagery from a 2009 artists' book of the same title. I wrote the original text; the original illustrations were oil-paintings, re-created as line illustrations for this project. "The book pages are transparent, and thus allow sections of several pages to be viewed at once. The pages are rigid and thick, designed to display well both flat and upright. When displayed upright, lighting can be adjusted for increased interplay between the line illustrations and the shadows they cast. "Construction: The rigid pages that make up the text block are constructed of 3 layers; the middle layer is of shaped copper leaf, the outer two layers are laser cut and etched cast acrylic (3/32 thick). This creates pages that are 3/16 inch thick, their edges are sealed with copper tape. The covers are sanded and waxed purple heart wood, planed to 3/8 inch thick. The recessed title label is laser printed copper leaf mounted on museum board. One of the book illustrations is repeated on the front cover via laser cutting. The book is coptic sewn across the spine with dyed and waxed 4 ply linen thread. I don't often weigh my books but this book, modest though it is in size has a nice heft and weighs 1 ½ pounds.

        Tora BoraBlack DustAn Opera in Three Acts

      San Francisco:: Pettingell Book Bindery / Art Hazelwood,, 2011.. Edition of 20. 12 x 13" fold-out boxed opera set with screenprinted covers. Includes miniature stage set, seven two-dimensional puppets that fit into groves in the stage floor, six engravings that act as changeable background drops, and a booklet with libretto. Engravings printed on Hahnemühle Copperplate paper and Lana Gravure paper. Screenprints printed on Hahnemühle Bugra paper and Arches Watercolor Hot Press paper. Booklet (8.5 x 5"; 24 pages) printed on Mohawk Superfine and set in Verlag, Chronicle Text, and Lithos Pro. Signed by Hazelwood. Art Hazelwood: "Tora Bora is a reverse engineered opera. The Seventeenth Century etcher Jacques Callot’s illustrations of scenes from operas inspired the thought—what if all that remained of an opera were etchings from a few scenes? How, for example, would the Magic Flute be reconstructed from that? With this in mind Art Hazelwood and Klaus-Ullrich Rötzscher began this collaboration."Art Hazelwood engraved the six scenes from the opera Tora Bora. Tora Bora is the name of a mountain cave complex at the center of Afghan contemporary history. The CIA funded the expansion of the caves there to help the Mujahedeen fight the Soviets. The Taliban used them, and it was Osama Bin Laden’s last known address, from where he escaped capture by the US. Even now poppy production and Taliban activity is rampant in this rugged mountain area twenty miles from the Pakistan border."The opera is presented in a fold out stage with screen printed covers. The viewer moves through the various scenes of the opera while reading the storyline and lyrics in an accompanying booklet and using seven puppets to enact the scenes. Should a full scale opera appear it will be staged on a larger stage."Two young Afghani lovers – Jaweed and Sitara – never have a chance. Buffeted by the storm of contemporary events – poppy growers, Soviets, Mujahideen, Taliban, CIA, Northern Alliance, US military – their doomed love is perfect opera material.

        13 Tattoos

      Alstead, New Hampshire:: Bird Press,, 2011.. Edition of 25. 15.5 x 5.25"; 16 leaves. Woodblock prints. Photopolymer letterpress details. Printed on handmade Richard de Bas paper. Bound in red and black paper wraps with handsewn binding. Laid in four flap black and white paper wrapper. Signed and numbered by the artist. Thorsten Dennerline: "Some time ago I suddenly got the urge to make a book about tattoos. I decided to think about tattoos not just as pictures or designs, but to consider them more broadly (scars, living drawing marks, body adornments, rites of passage, magic to improve the body’s function, ways to relieve or relive pain, signs of bravery, remembrances, cultural signifiers, or tribal/group markings). I also thought of the idea of drawing on skin and marking its surface as a way to be aware of it as a three-dimensional picture plane (with psychological implications). I have to admit that the associations with crime and other 'bad' things was enticing to me as well. This book of tattoo proposals is simply a non-linear document of my own thinking about these ideas.

        ESPAÑA PINTORESCA DE DAVID ROBERTS. Edicion facsímil.

      - CM EDITORES. Códices y libros iluminados. Salamanca 2011 ISBN: 978--84--939743--4--3 FACSIMIL David Roberts fue un pintor romántico escocés conocido por sus acuarelas y grabados de monumentos españoles y orientales. Obra cumbre del cotizado pintor romántico escocés David Roberts. Las fantásticas litografías de los dibujos de Roberts contribuyeron en gran medida a la difusión de la imagen exótica de España y Andalucía por todo el mundo, tal como lo hizo en la misma época la novela Carmen. Se trata de un titulo imprescindible para cualquiera amante del Arte y la Historia de España. Entre los años 1832-33 Roberts viajó por España y llegó hasta Tánger tomando múltiples dibujos que de regreso a Londres se convertirían en Litografías a cargo de otros artistas. Dichas litografías ilustraron diversos libros sobre viajes por España de varios escritores ingleses. En dichos dibujos Roberts realzaba los rincones que veía mediante alteraciones en la escala de los edificios y también añadiendo vegetación y demás elementos que aportaban un toque romántico y pintoresco a lugares ya de por sí evocadores. Sin ninguna duda su amistad con Pérez de Villaamil influyó notablemente en el cambio de estilo del pintor español al igual que influenció a Gustavo Doré quien años después recorrería España emulando el precedente de Roberts. Como reflejo de su éxito fue nombrado académico de la Royal Academy de Londres en 1841.Actualmente sus cuadros han cobrado un gran valor en el campo del coleccionismo de Arte. El Museo del Prado posee cuatro pinturas suyas; una Vista de Sevilla, La Torre del Oro, un paisaje de Alcalá de Guadaira y una vista interior de la Catedral de Burgos.Características:Titulo: "PICTURESQUE SKETCHES FROM SPAIN & MOROCCO" Contenido: 48 LITROGRAFÍAS DE PAISAJES Y MONUMENTOS ESPAÑOLES.Origen: Londres 1837-1855Encuadernación: ARTESANAL DE ÉPOCA Tirada:LIMITADA Y NUMERADA DE 375 EJEMPLARES Signatura: ER/1713 Y AFR/012431 DE LA Biblioteca Nacional de España V (Ref.37211) facsimil

Many layers of writing were attached to the original pages, creating different effects and textures. "Several lists of words were used: 1. Words concerning writing like calligraphy, typography, manuscript, ligature, script, etc.; 2. Words denoting part of something like palimpsest, snippet, flash, scrap, etc.; 3. Some fragments of words to do with Sun Tzu such as ubiquitous, resilient, evasive, relentless.

        Mountains & Religion

      Petaluma, California:: Mixolydian Editions,, 2011.. Edition of 40. 7 x 11.25 x .5"; 32 leaves. Letterpress printed with Monotype Bembo. Printed on handmade Yamagampi paper. Bound using handmade Lokta paper from Nepal over light boards. Laid in a wrap-around of Japanese silk Genji cloth and Kyoseishi paper. Mountains & Religion, a collection of twenty wood engravings, is based upon a journey to Nepal and Tibet in the autumn of 1995. The images are from the Kathmandu valley, up the Kali Gandaki valley on the Annapurna region of Nepal, then to Lhasa, Shigatse, and the countryside of Tibet. This visual documentation contains the expected mountain vistas, but just as compelling is the architecture of the human spirit - the monasteries, the temples, the public squares.Wagener's choice of slightly cream-colored, velvety paper is an effective for the deep blacks and subtle gradations of tone in his engravings. The supple cloth-like pages are in marked contrast to the solidity of the scenes, but the combination seems apt for a collection titled Mountains & Religions. The engravings are accompanied by excerpts from The Snow Leopard by Peter Matthiesen, My Journey to Lhasa by Alexandra David-Neel, and In the Himalayas by Jeremy Bernstein.
