        Dead Tree Junk Mail Book

      San Francisco, California:: Persona Grata Productions, Inc.,, 2012.. One-of-a-Kind. 9.5 x 11.25"; 10 pages. Double-sided accordion structure with first and last panels adhered to boards. Collage and pop-ups. Bound in confetti-covered boards. Housed in cloth-and-paper slipcase with paper title label on spine and top board. Arnold Iger: "After about six weeks of collecting the junk mail addressed to me in a large shopping bag, it overflowed with offers of credit cards, frequent flyer miles, mortgage refinancing, burial plots, mattresses made of memory foam, and discount coupons for oil changes and mufflers to name just a few. "Then I dumped the contents into a heap and began ripping open envelopes, tearing beckoning phrases into a smaller pile of commercial detritus, arranging a collage representing a slice of time, an endless flow of paper, which continues unabated, to just one household. In other words, turning junk into art.

        50 Años Years El Taller Experimental de Gráfica de la Habana Vieja Cuba

      Tuscaloosa & Havanna:: Parallel Editions,, 2012.. Edition of 66. 7.25 x 9.75" wrapper with pamphlet and prints. Letterpress printed pamphlet of 12 pages sewn into wrapper. 8 intaglio prints signed and numbered slipped into back folding flaps. Text in English and Spanish. Handbound in paper wrappers. Angel Manuel Ramirez: "The Experimental Graphic Workshop of Havana, a workshop, that this year celebrated its 50th anniversary, already has a long history with the trajectory of prints. Many Cuban and foreign artists have made use of the facilities in order to leave their own mark. Nevertheless, over so much time, the number of projects related to books was not so great as to represent a line of work. "That was when Anna Embree and Steve Miller, from The University of Alabama, arrived on the scene with their projects, their constantly renewed students, and above all their enthusiasm and keen knowledge needed to begin the miracle, to construct books where everything is art, and to bring to TEGH an experience that is gradually becoming the spearhead of a beautiful tradition. "From our perspective, we can only give thanks time and time again for the wealth of opportunities opened up by the exchange between both institutions and hope that the fiesta of the book and the print continues." Anna Embree and Steve Miller: "The Experimental Graphic Workshop in Havana, Cuba, has become a creative hub for faculty and students in the graduate Book Arts Program at The University of Alabama. 2012 marks the eighth year of collaborating with Cuban artists and papermakers on book projects. This project celebrates the distinguished 50th anniversary of the Taller, and marks a moment to thank the Taller for its continuing work with our students and faculty. ..." For this collaboration the intaglio prints were created and printed by Cuban artists at the workshop in Havana. The letterpress printing was done at the University of Alabama. The binding was done by UA students and faculty at the workshop in Havana.

        Bee Song

      Redmond, Washington:: Mari Eckstein Gower,, 2012.. One-of-a-Kind. A custom-made book-like structure (6 x 8.5") with tie closure opens to reveal a Moleskine® Japanese Accordion Album (3.5 x 5.625", 32 pages) lying in a cavity. The accordion opens to 10' (pre-folded paper) on which Gower has created original images, using black and colored ink pens. Mari Eckstein Gower: "Bees love the lavender plants in my garden. And I enjoy watching them at work. For this I decided to give myself a two-fold challenge. First, I wanted an excuse to research different mythologies surrounding bees. And second, I wanted to break into a different color scheme. (I usually use yellows and golds as highlights. This time I wanted to have them to be the leading ladies.) "There are many mythological and historical references in this piece. To list a few, I have incorporated imagery from: Egyptian tomb paintings, a pendant (circa 2000 BCE) from Minoan Crete (where priestesses dressed as bees and danced for the bee goddess), the Greek Thriai (a triad of honey priestesses), medieval manuscripts, and (of course) the Merovingian heraldic bees.

        In a Single Gesture

      Santa Rosa, California:: Nawakum Press,, 2012.. Edition of 30. 6.5 x 12"; 32 pages. Accordion structure. Designed by Jason Dewinetz of Greenboathouse Press (British Columbia). Text set on the computer in Brioso Pro. Letterpress printed calligraphic line by Californian Judy Detrick runs the length of the books. Patrick Reagh letterpress printed text and covers from polymer plates on a 28 inch Heidelberg Cylinder. Mould-made Somerset Book papers from St. Cuthberts Mill (England) and handmade Cave Paper (Minneapolis). Housed in clamshell box of Japanese silk bookcloth with inset paper title on spine and inset ceramic medallion with blue calligraphic line on front cover. Binding and box by John DeMerritt. Copies 1-6 are reserved for the press. Nawakum Press, announcement: "In a Single Gesture [is] a new and unpublished work from celebrated New Zealand-born poet and fine press printer Alan Loney. The book is a sequence of twenty four poems manifesting as one, connected by a single line drawn by Judy Detrick through the entire sixteen foot length of the accordion style binding. Poetry of thoughtful feeling from the outset, as Loney himself describes it, the work draws inspiration from ancient Greek poets and philosophers. Each poem's first line has been selected from an original Greek text and translated by the poet. Expanding on the essence of these first lines, each poem then resonates with immediate personal relevance in a style both self reflective and circumspect, in a manner that is crisp, fragmented, erudite and uniquely Loney. "Alan Loney has developed an international reputation as a poet, writer of prose and criticism, publisher, and as a fine printer. He is the 2011 Janet Frame Award for Poetry in Australia for lifetime achievement, and previously the 1976 New Zealand Book Award for poetry with his collection Dear Mondrian. Loney has printed over fifty books of his own work and the work of other poets. Poet Robert Creeley has stated that Alan Loney's work has always been at the cutting edge of world literature and that his mastery has become a resource for us all. "The design of In A Single Gesture takes its cues from the text and is light, clean, and elegantly simple. The poems speak to the four elements: breath/wind/air, earth, fire, and water, and the emotions embodied therein. The lack of punctuation or capitalization in these poems speaks to an open-endedness, an ongoing linguistic line that is broken only by space and breath. The typeface employed is self-consciously 'written,' with a pronounced calligraphic gesture to it, partnered by the finely drawn calligraphic line running through the pages. The line rises up on occasion to a gestural flourish, with cues taken from the poem, and then continues fluently onward. The title of this edition is drawn from the poetry itself: 'it's all here, all at once, the whole in a single gesture'.

        Encyclopédie des métiers - La maçonnerie et la taille de pierres ----- [ 8 Volumes /8 sous coffret ]

      - Paris 2012. 8 Volumes/8 - Sous emboîtage - Format 36 x 24 cm . ----- 4000 pages pour l'ensemble. ******************* "" Depuis longtemps, les Compagnons du Devoir ont senti la nécessité de fixer par écrit les connaissances techniques acquises par des générations d'hommes de métier, mais aussi tout ce qui a trait à la culture de ces métiers et aux valeur du travail. Il s'agit là d'un véritable patrimoine qu'il convient de protéger, de faire vivre et de perpétuer. Il s'agit d'une oeuvre ambitieuse et originale puisque la conception de l'ouvrage et la rédaction des textes sont issues d'une collaboration étroite entre les Compagnons et tous ceux qui participent d'une manière ou d'une autre à la vie et à l'histoire de ces métiers, historiens, architectes ou ingénieurs. Par cette démarche qui associe les compétences de tous, ils ont voulu non seulement porter témoignage des compétences acquises, mais aussi ouvrir des perspectives à ces grands métiers d'avenir. ******** Les Compagnons ont consacré un volume abondamment illustré à ces fidèles complices du tailleur de pierre et du maçon, en retraçant leur histoire et en décrivant leur fonction. Le dessin, le matériau, les outils, les mots sont les instruments. Reste le plus important : la mise en oeuvre et ses techniques. Dans les volumes réunis sous le titre : Le savoir-faire, les auteurs ont étudié l'art de bâtir depuis l'établissement des fondations jusqu'à l'application des revêtements. La mise en oeuvre, selon ce que nous appelons les règles de l'art, des différents éléments tels, les voûtes, les escaliers, les baies, envisagée de manière théorique dans les volumes précédents, a été décrite étape par étape. Des exemples de réalisations récentes exécutées par les Compagnons Tailleurs de Pierre ou Maçons ont été analysés. Ainsi, un véritable inventaire thématique de la construction a pu être élaboré. L'apprenti y trouvera les clés de son futur métier, le professionnel des exemples accomplis et le curieux la possibilité d'aborder différemment les beautés de l'architecture.

        Bird, String, Cricket

      Portland, Maine:: Rebecca Goodale,, 2012.. Edition of 3. 6 x 6"; 18 unnumbered pages. Handmade paper folded into 5 French-folded signatures sewn onto two straps. Handcolored collagraphs and velvet flowers tell the wordless story. Banded with button and thread closure. Rebecca Goodale has been documenting the extinct and endangered flora and fauna of Maine since 1999. Her books in this area, as Nicholas Schroeder said in a review of her exhibition Lullaby, "vivify, celebrate, and elaborate them, often with poetic flourishes, rich metaphor, and abundance of color. Their surfaces mirror her subjects' habitats, and the rhythm of their bindings borrows from their intricate and animate patterns." Once in a while she diverts from the specific theme of extinct and endangered to produce a playful book still with the theme of flora and fauna. Bird, String, Cricket is such a book. It is a playful book with bright colors and velvet flowers — a bird, a string, and a cricket.

        Minutes: Dance Steps for the Beleaguered Being an Enquiry into the Nature, Order and Methodology of the Professional AggregationContaining Triangulations and Refutations of Dynamic Manipulatives by Two Persons of Letters Hitherto Referred to as Dr. Flansbaum-Pierce and Dr. Francis J. Ascet

      Beverly, Massachusetts:: Olfactory Press,, 2012.. Edition of 36. 12 x 9" closed, 12 x 90" extended; 10 pages. Accordion structure extending from the front pastedown. Letterpress with polymer plates. Bound in paper-over-boards with cloth spine. Slipcase of lightweight paper folder with handwritten title label stickers on side. Signed, numbered, and dated by the artist. Sarah Smith: "The humor in my work revolves around human behavior and interactions in social situations, academia, the workplace, and in history. Authority and authorship is brought into question as text and form turn out to be other than expected. Ideas and images are often put into a different context to better point out the absurdity in life. "In the case of Dance Steps for the Beleaguered, life at a meeting is examined in the context of animal behavior, honey bee communication, animal enrichment programs for bored animals kept in captivity, flocking patterns, management of various farm animals, and other issues involving animals, their psychology, and social structures. Of course the parallel of human behavior to animal behavior is obvious, but when it is presented through the snippy comments and abstracts written by two bickering academics the connections become further blended and amplified at the same time. At least this is the aim. Another aim is to make the viewer/reader laugh and recognize even more connections between the absurdity of human constructs and the complexity of the natural world." Colophon: "This book began as confusion, grew into irritation, and eventually became nervous amusement. This also describes much of my experience in the workplace and academia. Other than the influences I need not mention, inspiration for the book came from How to Know Fresh-Water Algae by G. W. Prescott, The Biggle Farm Library, The Shepherd's Manual by Henry Stewart, The Journal of Musculoskeletal Pain, the on-line journal Applied Animal Behavior Science and many other gripping texts, especially those written by Edward Tufte. My research brought me into the fascinating worlds of honeybee communication and the 'waggle dance,' slime mold behavior, collective animal behavior, repulsion and attraction in alignment, Craig Reynolds' Boid program, Temple Grandin's approach to animal enrichment, the history of Semaphore, dance notation, elephant amusement, and so many other subjects that I only wish I could have included, or at least read about and not included.

        White Monks A Life in Shadows

      Las Palmas, Spain:: Francesca Phillips,, 2012.. Edition of 50. 9.96 x 9.25 x 1.57"; 176 pages. Printed on Lambeth Cartridge Paper, 170 gsm. Includes 84 black and white photographs. Bound in dark brown calfskin. Cream foil blocked. Housed in a black linen-covered slipcase with recessed silver gelatin print. Photography and design by Francesca Phillips. Printed by Senecio, Oxfordshire, UK. Binding by Ludlow Bookbinders, Shropshire, UK. Signed and numbered by the artist. English and Spanish text with selected quotations by Henry David Thoreau, James Thurber, Robert Browning, and others. Selected text includes lines from "In Silence" by Thomas Merton; "I thank You God for most this amazing" by E. E. Cummings: and "If It Be Your Will" by Leonard Cohen. Translation by Miguel Curbelo, Las Palmas, Spain. Francesca Phillips: "White Monks: A Life in Shadows offers an intimate glimpse into an ancient way of life that is slowly disappearing, a testament to lives devoted to spiritual service, in extraordinary counterpoint to the modern world. "The Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance, more commonly known as the Trappists, is a Roman Catholic contemplative enclosed order of monks and nuns that evolved from a succession of reforms to return to the true spirit of the Benedictines. Living in solitude, in an atmosphere of silence, they have chosen a life of private contemplation very rarely seen by others. Made over a period of three years, this collection of photographs gives us a sense of the mystique of monastic life, the enigmatic otherness of monks. "Photographed in three monasteries in Spain: Monasterio de La Oliva in Navarra, Monasterio de San Pedro de Cardeña in Burgos, and Abadia San Isidro de Dueñas in Palencia." Francesca Phillips, additional comments: With the permission to photograph came several provisos that included, at first, showing no faces at all. Wandering around alone in public areas I was to be as inconspicuous and as sensitive as possible. If accompanied I could go to certain private quarters, but just for a few minutes, and there was to be no talking, as is the rule of the Order. The slightly clandestine nature of it was strangely liberating. At six o'clock in the morning, in the winter, in the darkness of a 12th-century church, thinking you are alone, only to slowly discover that you are surrounded by twenty hooded, praying monks - it was a perfect moment of pure theatre. "I realized early on that to try and demystify their way of life was pointless, and that all I could do was attempt to capture something of its atmosphere. The photographs live as a record for those who don't have the opportunity to see for themselves the life that takes place inside a monastery. It was an extraordinary privilege to work in the communities, even more so as a woman, and during my time with them my questions grew. Above all, still, who is a monk? The times in which we live make it seem all the more remarkable that someone can renounce so much to enter a monastery, abstain from such great choice. But this is a secular thought. For those who hear the call to monastic life the ultimate desire is to concentrate on their faith. Their decision holds secrets and in them lies a poetic mystery.

Nicholas Schroeder, Rebecca Goodale's Artists Books at UNE: "For those not solely concerned with Goodale's unorthodox field guide of endangered species, her most arresting ideas are to be discovered in the limitless ways in which she conceives of a book. 'Pygmy Pond Lily,' … exploits a jack-in-the-box motif to an almost nightmarish degree, its fronds (made from paste paper and marbling on Tyvek silkscreen prints) creep in every direction.

        Angelus in Domus

      New York:: Honey Tree Press,, 2012.. Edition of 40. 4 x 6.25"; 158 pages. Printed in the spring of 2012 at the Center for Book Arts in New York. Printed in Centaur and Dearest fonts on Johannot paper using polymer plates. An edition of 40: 30 standard in red cloth-covered boards and 10 deluxe bound in embroidered covers. Laid in four-fold paper portfolio with slip and slot closure. Mukti Cerio: "There exists a romantic vision of the Victorians that has taken root in our generation, but this vision hides a far more nefarious time in history. Beyond the well-mannered parlors of the English country home lay a quagmire of filth, iniquity, and sorrow. Disease was rampant, poverty was almost all pervasive, and the explosion of the Industrial Revolution meant that most English laborers spent from dawn till dusk toiling in factories and below the earth in the blackness of the mines. To be poor in Victorian England was a grueling march to death, which included few daily pleasures and almost no respite. "If this was the life of the English working class, it is inconceivable to contemplate the life of women during this period. If you were lucky enough to be born into a good family your sole purpose in life was to be wed to a suitable husband. Once married, women lost all their land, wealth, and titles and became the property of their husbands; and these unfortunate women were the lucky ones. Consider the countless women who were unable to marry? They quickly joined an invisible class of unwanted old maids who took their place at the edge of the ballroom. They had no home, no income, no status, and worst of all they were blamed for their condition as if it was a choice rather than an infliction. And behind every well-bred young lady, and every kitchen maid, beside every governess, and every matchstick girl, stood the Angel in the House like a ghostly reminder of their own imperfection. "Angelus in Domus is an artist book that contrasts Coventry Patmore's epic poem 'The Angel in the House,' against facts about women's lives in Victorian England. Patmore's poem came to symbolize the ideal that every woman was expected to bend to. His work was viewed in this manner by his contemporaries and still exists as a by line used to refer to the perfect Victorian woman. The statistical information is all derived from original sources including the 1831 and 1871 census. Throughout the book I have used silhouette images to illustrate the text, which was an art form typically practiced by women during the period. The deluxe edition of the book comes with embroidered covers, embroidery being one of the prized accomplishments of a Victorian lady.

      Beijing, China:: Leilei Guo,, 2012.. Edition of 5. 19.5 x 13 x 1.5", expands to 13"; 13 pages. Double-sided modified tunnel structure. Hand-cut. Silkscreen prints. Laid in four flap hard cover portfolio wrapper. Signed by the artist. Leilei Guo: "This book is one of my continuing themes about the living environment in our modern life. Nowadays, the living spaces of human beings are becoming smaller and smaller, and the boundaries of regions are becoming blurred and even indistinct. People from different countries live and mingle together. We see Western people in Asia and Asian people in the West. People may have different color skin, but they use the same languages. Sometimes it is hard to know where we are, it could be New York, Tokyo, Beijing, or Paris. It seems as if the boundaries between nations are disappearing day by day. This growing similarity in architecture around the world is just one sign of a world becoming homogenous. "In this book my idea is that in ancient times there are many mountains on the land, and as civilizations developed these have been replaced (sometimes literally) by many apartments. On the two sides of this book is an image of the mountains from the ancient Chinese paintings; the interior shows the modern apartments, one layer by another."

Signed and numbered by the printer. This is the standard edition. Deep Wood Press: "John D. Voelker (June 19, 1903 - March 19, 1991), better known by his pen name Robert Traver, was a renowned fly fisherman, and a member of the Fly Fishing Hall of Fame. His early professional career was as an attorney, judge, and later a writer. He is best known as the author of the novel Anatomy of a Murder published in 1958. The best-selling novel was turned into an Academy Award nominated film - directed by Otto Preminger and starring James Stewart - that was released July 1, 1959. After the success of his novel, Anatomy of a Murder, Voelker retired from the court in 1959 in order to write full-time and to fish at his beloved Frenchman's Pond. There, he devoted himself to writing, and perhaps above all else, fly fishing, with a special passion for wild brook trout. Although he traveled far in his pursuit of trout, he recognized the Upper Peninsula as a particularly special place to fish. His writings, though steeped in fly fishing, also embraced the larger beauty of nature, and human nature. ?"John Voelker lived his life as most of us wish we could - on his own terms. He was a renowned novelist and outdoor writer, an eminent member of the bench and bar, and a skilled fly fisherman. Author of 11 books and numerous stories, a Michigan Supreme Court Justice who wrote over 100 finely crafted opinions, and self 'proclaimed U.P. Cribbage Champ,?' John Voelker made many contributions that live on today." Colophon: "The Intruder was originally published as a chapter in the book Trout Madness published by St. Martin's Press in 1960. ... Nothing as ironic as printing a book about fishing while the trout are frantically rising to big hatches 30 feet from the studio door. Promises made, promises kept.

(LAST COPY) Allison Milham: "This project explores the occupied state of Hawai'i; it's political past and history of organized resistance. Milham combines music composed by Queen Lili'uokalani, (played and recorded by the artist), with a detailed portrayal of Hawai'i's story contained within the accompanying album artwork and packaging. The content plays out in an interactive uncovering; an intense discovery of successive layers to be sifted through, understood and felt. Postcards, 12" laser-cut stencil, booklet and other items of ephemera become tools, allowing the viewer to turn their newly acquired knowledge into action. "Being one quarter Native Hawaiian, this project is very personal, honoring my family and heritage, but it also speaks to my interests in activism, sharing history and my efforts for social change.

        In A Single Gesture

      Santa Rosa, CA: Nawakum Press, 2012. 61/2 x 12"; 32 pages. One of 30 copies, of which 24 were for sale. Letterpress printed on mould-made Somerset Book and handmade Cave Paper. Jason Dewinetz of Greenboathouse Press designed the edition. The text is Brioso Pro, designed by Robert Slimbach. California calligrapher Judy Detrick illustrated the text with a calligraphic line, printed letterpress, running throughout the entire length of the book. Patrick Reagh printed the text and covers from polymer plates. The accordion bindings and clamshell boxes were produced by John DeMerritt. Alan Loney has developed an international reputation as a poet, writer of prose and criticism, publisher, and as a fine press printer. He is the 2011 recipient of the Janet Frame Award for Poetry in New Zealand for lifetime achievement, and previously won the 1976 New Zealand Book Award for poetry with his collection Dear Mondrian. Loney has printed over fifty books of his own work and the work of other poets. His Hawk Press (1974-83) , Black Light Press (1987-91) , and Holloway Press (1994-98) have given voice to the smallest nuances of his creative expressions and those of other poets. In A Single Gesture is a sequence of 24 poems manifesting as one, connected by a single calligraphic line drawn by Judy Detrick through the entire sixteen-foot length of the accordion style binding. Poetry of thoughtful feeling from the outset, as Loney himself describes it, the work draws inspiration from ancient Greek poets and philosophers. Each poem's first line has been selected from an original Greek text and translated by the poet. Expanding on the essence of these first lines, each poem then resonates with immediate personal relevance in a style both self reflective and circumspect, in a manner that is crisp, fragmented, erudite and uniquely Loney. Fine.
