        Rivers of Grass. An Homage to Marjory Stoneman Douglas.

      Minerva: The Press at Wimberly, Boca Raton, FL 2012 - Artist's book, one of 36 copies, on Yu Kou heavy for the images and text and interleaved with Yu Kou light paper, hand numbered and signed by the artist on the colophon page, "DKrause." Page size: 9-7/8 x 6-7/8 inches; 10pp. Bound: loose as issued housed in envelope made of terracotta Lokta oil paper fastened with tie (combination of terracotta and light orange string and tan leather cord) on lozenge-shaped seed-pod from mahogany tree serves as the fastener, printed letterpress (with a small amount of ink) with the words RIVER OF GRASS and Dorothy Simpson Krause on the lower left front corner. The artist tells us that the envelope, 7 x 10 inches, was selected as the sort of thing an early settler might use to carry a parcel of documents. The seven images (six images plus titlepage) in the book were produced from historic images selected by the artist (credits listed on last page) as well as the artist's own photographs. The photographs of the Everglades were combined with the historic images on the computer and, in each, separated a layer that became the letterpress printing plate. The resulting images have achieved a depth and luminosity not otherwise possible. Ghost-like images reflecting the history of the Everglades combine with the disastrous effects of industrial mismanagement. However, the beauty and vastness of this natural wonder shine through in each image. A laser printer was used to print the under-layer for letterpress. The unprinted margins of the paper were torn away to create a deckle edge. Each sheet was then folded into a folio and then opened flat and a sheet of Yu Kou sheer was used between each folio. The interleaving of lighter- weight sheets somehow, when turning the pages, suggests the movement of the grasses in the Everglades. Marjory Stoneman Douglas (1890-1998) was an American journalist, writer, feminist and environmentalist. The worked for "The Miami Herald" and wrote over 100 short stories. It is, however, for her 1947 book, THE EVERLADES: RIVER OF GRASS, that she is most remembered. Compared to Rachel Carson's SILENT SPRING for its impact on the environment, it redefined the national image of the Everglades, pointing out that the entire ecosystem of south Florida was dependent on this natural wonder. Dorothy Simpson Krause's homage to Marjory Douglas, and, therefore, to the Everglades, is a beautiful book with a strong and vital message. See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Shark-net Seahorses of Balmoral: A Harbor Memoir. Twenty-one Linocuts by Peter Kingston and Twelve Poems by Robert Adamson. Together with a Song Composed by Peter Kingston.

      Chowder Bay Press, Sydney, Australia 2012 - Artist's book, one of 26 lettered copies, A-Z, plus 2 Artist Proof copies, all on Japanese Iwaki Mulberry paper for the linocuts and Rising Stonehenge paper for the poems, with wrapper supports of Suecia Antiqua Chamois, each book signed and lettered in pencil, by the artist, Peter Kingston, and the author, Robert Adamson. There are twenty-one prints by Kingston, including three long internal wrappers, a folding leporello, the upper lid of the box, and the illustrated colophon in the base of the lining. Page size: 13-3/4 x 13-3/4 inches; 14 folios consisting of poem title on recto, poem on verso, linocut (chine colle) on recto (one of which is double page fold), verso blank; plus titlepage and colophon, plus wrappers consisting of double-page linocut on Iwaki Mulberry paper to hold colophon and color photograph of Mr. Kingston and Mr. Adamson. Bound: loose as issued in linocut-printed green wrappers of Iwaki Mulberry paper showing wide-eyed, iridescent silver - pink - and blue seahorses in a black net on green ground on front of wrapper with groper swimming into the net on the back cover; the wrappers are one continuous double-size linocut - and quite an extraordinary one it is. Housed in custom-made wood box (radiata pine) with Peter Kingston's view of Sydney Harbor on a cream painted ground (by Peter Kingston) then printed silk screen with his view of Sydney Harbor in red, blue, black, and yellow and finished by hand. One the inside front cover of the box is Peter Kingston's musical score for piano, "Francis Webb's Song" printed on Rising Stonehenge paper. Francis Webb, well-regarded Australian poet and Adamson's poetic hero, was the subject of his inaugural lecture as founding Professor, CAL Chair of Poetry, University of Technology, Sydney. A light sensitive circuit plays this song without words when the box is opened. Another linocut, the logo of Chowder Bay Press, is revealed on the inside pastedown of the box, again printed in color with the wood spoon technique by Peter Kingston, again signed and numbered by him.Each of the 21 linocuts is hand finished by Peter Kingston, especially the cover wrapper of sea horses which are accomplished by hand (eyes, scales, etc.) The sea horses enchant and invite the viewer / reader to get caught in the "net" of this wonderful memory of a shared environment. Meticulously printed, designed and assembled by Nicholas Pounder, set in Bembo type, using archivally stable Japanese pigment ink, the book reflects a true collaboration between author and artist and printer. The poet Robert Adamson and the artist Peter Kingston, both born in 1943, grew up on opposite sides of Sydney Harbour: the poet on the north shore at Neutral Bay with Taronga Park and Balls Head nearby, and the artist on the south side at Vaucluse, near the now lost Wintergarden Cinema and Sydney Stadium. They shared a deep attachment to the foreshore and water, although their paths diverged: Kingston was sent to a prestigious private school, and Adamson graduated from delinquency to Long Bay Gaol; and Kingston eventually moved across the Harbour to Lavender Bay, while Adamson left for the Hawkesbury River. However in this autobiographical collaboration they recall some of the landmarks, formative events, and magical experiences of their childhood, like the seahorses that Robert Adamson used to see taunting a groper on the other side of the shark net at Balmoral, where he swam every day.Peter Kingston is a well-known Australian artist whose work is held by the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; the State Library of New South Wales, Sydney; the Museum of Sydney, several regional galleries and internationally by the Biblioteque de la ville, Belgium; and the National Film Library in Tokyo. A monograph of the artist's work titled 'Harbourlights: the art of Peter Kingston' was published in 2004. Robert Adamson, one of Australia's leading poets, has been a key player in the growth o [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        She. Poetry and Original Prints.

      Cornville, Maine 2012 - Artist's book, one of 12 copies, all on handmade paper by Katie MacGregor, each copy signed and numbered by the artist / author, Bonnie Bishop. Page size: 5-3/4 x 8-1/2 inches; 64pp. Bound by the artist: hand-sewn with Coptic style binding, single thread sewn through each of the 8 signatures, white wrappers stiffened with archival paper, title blind embossed on front panel, housed in white box. Ms. Bishop has written 7 poems, all concerned with the female goddess as imagined by various cultures: Three Graces, Greece; Isis, Egypt; Inanna, Sumerian; Trivia, Rome; Kuan Yin, China. Her final verse reconciles the various deities - "We are all from the same country." The images are printed silkscreen and monoprint in gold and bright blue. The text is handset in Optima and printed letterpress by Scott Vile at Ascensius Press. The images, often forms associated with the Virgin Mary, or Russian Icons, or classical Greek images serve to highlight the text with negative space allowing printing of the text within the human form. Feathers, which appear in the first verse, are another theme, as are honeycomb patterns associated with bees. Ms. Bishop has created a lovely book with verse that is at once provocative and comforting. See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Gods of Nemrud: The Royal Sanctuary of Antiochos I & the Kingdom of Commagene.

      Istanbul: Ertug & Kocabiyik (Borusan), 2012. - SMITH, R. R. R. (Text) - AHMET ERTUG (Photos) Gods of Nemrud: The Royal Sanctuary of Antiochos I & the Kingdom of Commagene. Istanbul: Ertug & Kocabiyik (Borusan), 2012. 4to. (34x47 cm), 196 p., 95 color plates, 37 ills. In English. A unique complex of archaeological material survives from Commagene in the first century BC. It derives from a local king, Antiochos I, and is of great interest in itself and for the study of ancient religion and art. The material consists of a large body of monumental sculpture, statues and reliefs and voluminous inscriptions about the king and his gods. The monuments are unique in their quantity, and in being precisely dated and identified. Together the texts and images provide an unrivalled opportunity for getting close to the quality and texture of an ancient cult. Antiochos I of Commagene (c. 69-36 BC) belonged at the tail-end of Hellenistic monarchy and the beginning of Roman rule in Syria and Eastern Anatolia. The scholarly text by R.R.R. Smith describes the geography and political history of Antiochos kingdom, and looks at the archaeology of his sanctuaries and his royal cult as known from inscriptions. Exquisite photography by Ahmet Ertug concentrates on some of the best preserved sculpture from two sites, Nemrud Dag and Arsameia and expresses in a new way the distinctive character and impact of these extraordinary monuments. Roman mosaics from Zeugma on the Euphrates are also included in the book. The large picture mosaics discovered in the Zeugma houses during the rescue excavations of the 1990s are sensational. They continue the tradition of Hellenistic mosaic floors with pictorial scenes of mythology, allegory, and marine fantasy, and constitute a missing link in the second century AD between picture mosaics of the later Hellenistic period and of Late Antiquity. The photography of Ahmet Ertug in this beautifully printed book will bring readers into a spectacular and less familiar landscape of the ancient world, one that felt itself already in Antiquity to be perched at the bridgehead between West and East. The photographs in the book were printed with special inks, and all color-separation and proofing was done at the digital darkroom of Ahmet Ertug. The book is 34 x 47cms in landscape format, and has 196 pages, 95 color plates and 37 figures. Printed in Germany, hardbound in Switzerland with exquisite cloth, presented in slipcase. Original cloth bdg. Original slipcase. Mint. Oversize and very heavy volume. Please contact for postage cost.

        Types, Paper, Print. [The Horror at Red Hook].

      4to, 305 X 205mm, [32]pp + frontispiece, Heavenly Monkey, Vancouver, 2012. - Number 33 of 40 (50) copies printed on Guarro paper in grey, reddish-brown and black. Wood-engraving by Shinsuke Minegishi. Combed marbled paper-covered boards (varying colours), gilt-titled white labels. A new copy. Collinge and Clark News Letter 3: 'Seize the Monkey' - was in large part devoted to this splendid book. For those who do not not subscribe: 'Types/Paper/Print' is a new type specimen book from Rollin Milroy's Heavenly Monkey Press in Vancouver. It displays nine roman and eleven italic faces in various sizes printed on Guarro paper, with an 'allusive' wood engraving cut and printed on gampi by Shinsuke Minegishi. Each face is displayed on a full page (31 X 21cm) in three text sizes with ample margins. There is a three-page foreword by Rollin, discussing why these typefaces have been chosen and how they will be used (and printed) at the studio. This section also touches upon the importance of paper and how it can affect the appearance of type. (The ten special copies, immediately fully subscribed, illustrated this point by having all of the samples printed on three different papers - including Arches Wove and Reg Lissel's handmade, all printed damp, bound together seqentially for comparison's sake.)Binding for the specials is quarter leather by Claudia Cohen, for the forty standard copies combed marbled paper-covered boards, gilt-titled white labels on the spine and upper board - that on the front cover being in the shape of a small diamond - which sits on these eighteenth-century style quarto boards just so. The text used to display the types is H.P. Lovecraft's story The Horror at Red Hook, though it is hardly mentioned anywhere that this type specimen is also a story. Something to delight and infuriate Lovecraft collectors, no doubt, when they get to hear of it.The title-page (in grey, black and reddish-brown) is enjoyably perfect. It is beautifully printed and laid out, there is a left-leaning touch of humour in what seems to be a reference to Eric Gill's 'Typography'. In all, not just a delight to handle, but what I perhaps like most is that it is a clear statement of intention and ambition rather than a monument to achievement. There is nothing of specimen pages of past work here. All is new. Rollin gracefully confessed to a small error in the foreword and Shinsuke Minegishi's wood engraving 'Mr Milroy's Gate to a Wonder World' is not on an integral leaf, being a late addition, but this to carp. What will interest and surprise many is that this is a polymer not a metal production. Obviously, it is polymer printed on the hand-press - choosing to work with digital type as if it was metal - with all the automated features turned off. Being both rooted in the technologies of the past and looking foward as an artist bookmaker is an idea firstly, not so heretical as it might seem, but is also one we will come across again in this issue.

There are three across and two deep, and there are two such boards. Also enclosed is a triangular mounting board, along with a diagram showing the placement of the women within the stand. When mounted, the women are joined at the hand to create an accordion that is double sided. Elizabeth Blackwell, Edith Wharton, Frances Perkins, Mary Cassatt, Abigail Adams, Marion Anderson, and Belva Lockwood all have on dresses or suits of Liberty Lawn fabric and their is lace incorporated on the clothing. They alternate with Martha Gelhorn, Rachel Carson, Dorothea Lange, Jacqueline Cochran, and Katherine Hepburn who are in pants and blouses or jackets in Liberty Lawn fabric. For example, the Elizabeth Blackwell image (on side with stamp) reads, "In 1849, Elizabeth Blackwell became the first woman to achieve a medical degree in the United States." On the reverse, the text reads, "In 1857, Elizabeth Blackwell opened the New York Infirmary for Indigent Women and Children, a full scale hospital. Then in 1868, she established a women's medical college at the infirmary to train women physicians. The remainder of her life was devoted to the promotion of hygiene and preventive medicine." The The "chain" of American women - portrayed in paper dolls with their postage stamps pictured and with text elaborating their accomplishments dressed in Liberty Lawn fabrics is an unusual book structure. Much like the accomplishments of these ground- breaking women, it defies categorization but is to be admired. See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Dear Bee. Loving Letters to a Daughter 1927-1935.

      Marshfield Hills, MA 2012 - Artist's book, one of six copies, all on a range of papers, each copy signed and numbered by the artist, Viola Kaeumlen. Page size: box of 13 pouches (tied with brown silk ribbon) as envelopes holding the "letters" and related material written by the artist, printed list of contents, box size closed is 5.5 x 7.5 x 2.25 inches. Bound by the artist: two-part box is brown book cloth over boards and adorned with medallion of young woman; box fastened tan silk cord woven through eight holes in the 2 parts of the box, lined with Canson BFK Rives Tan paper. The artist's statement and the colophon explain that the book contains texts of letters written by Mrs. Mary Arthur to her daughter Beatrice Arthur over the period from 1927 - 1935 that were found in an old suitcase by Ms. Kaeumlen in 2010 in flea market on the Boston South Shore. The letters led to an investigation of not only the women concerned but the times in which they lived, with the pertinent information on the times: the Sacco-Vanzetti case, the Lindbergh kidnapping, the Great Depression, local industry (in which Bee's father worked) The Cordage Company, their church in Plymouth where they lived (the first church established by the Mayflower colonists), social welfare programs of the times. Unusual for the times, Beatrice Arthur left her parent's home in Plymouth, MA to attend Salem State College in what was then far-off Salem. Her mother's letters of this eight year period are the very stuff of social history as well as the poignant details of one family's struggle to survive in very hard times. Four of the 13 pouches hold general information about how the letters were found, the history of the family (Mr. Arthur was an immigrant from Scotland), and a conclusion. The other nine pouches are related to one of the years Mary wrote to her daughter. Ms. Kaeumlen was able to locate the family home in Plymouth and learned that Bee had passed away in 2009 at the age of 99, a devoted educator for all of her life. The artist has located family photographs, postcards from the era, paper clippings and greeting cards, all of which were scanned in printed on an archival inkjet printer on a range of papers including Epson Matte, Red River Polar Pearl Metallic, Silver Metallic, Canson Newsprint, Strathmore translucent Vellum and Sennelier Calligraphy paper. The fonts used are Helvetica for Ms. Kaeumlen's own writing and general information texts and Lucida Handwriting for the excerpts of Mary Arthur's letters. This is a beautiful object, redolent of another time when hand-written mail meant significant time lapses in communication and correspondents had expressive and unique hand-writing as well as vocabulary. More than that, the author / artist, Viola Kaeumlen, has taken this remarkably personal correspondence and placed it firmly in a time and place in American social history. with information about health epidemics, social issues - the Arthur's must deal with payment in "scrip" instead of real money, criminal cases of local and national interest, as well as the role of the local church and welfare societies in everyday life. It is as beautiful and meaningful way of learning social history as one could find. Beatrice Arthur, the "Dear Bee" of the letters, is perhaps the prototype of the 20th century woman who earned a bachelor's degree in Business Education and completed post-graduate work at Harvard, Boston University and Bridgewater State College and worked summers in the Plymouth Cooperative Bank, the Plymouth Cordage Company office, and as a civil service secretary in the U.S. government as well as marrying and raising her step-children.

Pero no hay nada mecánico en su forma de proceder, sino que cada asociación ha pasado previamente por el filtro del conocimiento y el cedazo de la razón para expresar exactamente lo que quiere decir o para dejarse sorprender por lo que las piezas dicen?

        "Let's Reach a New Height." Composition for unaccompanied four-part chorus (SATB). Autograph musical manuscript full score. Complete. Signed and dated by the composer April 14, 2012

      . Small folio, ca. 280 x 215 mm. Unbound. 3ff. notated in pencil on one-side of each leaf. 68 measures in total. The final state of the manuscript. A note in the composer's hand to the last page carries instructions for the transfer of the score into Finale, the music notation software program.. Commissioned by the New York Virtuoso Singers to celebrate the choir's 25th anniversary, the present work was first performed by them under the direction of the noted choral conductor Harold Rosenbaum at Merkin Concert Hall in New York on October 21, 2012. The text is by the Chinese poet of the Tang dynasty's Kaiyuan era Wang Zhihuan (688-742). "... the beauty of Chen Yi's beguiling and animated setting of 'Let's Reach a New Height' comes from the way her music interacts with the vivid verbal imagery, a metaphorical take on a Tang dynasty poem about striving higher in years to come." Anthony Tommasini in a New York Times Review, October 23, 2013 "Sent to the countryside as a labourer during the Cultural Revolution, she kept her violin with her, entertaining farmers with melodies from 'revolutionary operas' condoned by the Gang of Four and practising Western repertory when she was alone. After returning home at the age of 17, she served as leader and composer for the local Beijing opera troupe. She studied composition with Wu Zuqiang and visiting professor Alexander Goehr at the Central Conservatory in Beijing when it reopened in 1977... Her honours have included awards from the Guggenheim, Ford, Rockefeller, Alpert, Fromm and Koussevitzky foundations, and the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. In 2001, she became the second-ever recipient of the Charles Ives Living Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the ASCAP Concert Music Award... Chen's music combines Western compositional techniques with elements of Chinese musical tradition." Joanna C. Lee in Grove online
