It is titled Tatai Hono, the joining of lines of descent. ... Thanks to Patricia Grace for allowing me to refer to her book Ned and Katina. Fred Hagstrom: "I take students to New Zealand every two years, and in doing that have made good friends at a Maori Marae, which is a tribal meetinghouse. This is the story of their parents. Ned Nathan joined the Maori Battalion at the start of World War II. Like other Maori, he came from a rural background, but wanted to serve to help to improve the standing of Maori people in New Zealand. The battalion's first major battles were in Crete. Ned was badly wounded, presumed dead, and was left behind as the British evacuated and left the island to German occupation. He made his way up into the mountains and was helped by villagers there. They risked everything to help the stranded British soldiers. He learned Greek and passed as a local when interviewed by the Germans. He also fell in love with a woman from the village. He was later captured and sent to a German POW camp. After the war, he returned to Crete to marry Katina. They moved to New Zealand where they raised a family, started multiple businesses, and helped many people from Greece and Crete to immigrate to New Zealand. They also founded the marae that I visit. This book is made in the friendship I feel for this remarkable family.

        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.

        Time

      Montgomery Village, Maryland:: Shireen M. Holman,, 2012.. Edition of 20. 13.25 x 18"; 16 pages. Bound in illustrated paper wraps. Woodcuts printed onto handmade paper with pulp paintings. Text printed on gampi, which was then pasted onto the handmade sheets. Laid in cloth- and paper-covered clamshell box with title letters tipped on cover. Signed and numbered by the artist.Shireen Holman, Colophon: "I created this book by printing woodcuts onto paper that I made at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center in Silver Spring, Maryland. Using finely beaten coloured flax and cotton pulp, I painted and stenciled images and textures onto base sheets of 50% cotton and 50% abaca. I used cherry plywood blocks and printed them with oil based inks. I handset the type in Lydian, and Christopher Manson, at Crooked Crow Press, printed it onto gampi, which was then pasted onto the handmade sheets. Shireen Holman: "My artist book Time is my visual representation of the ways in which people think about time, eternity, and their relationship to human life and death. Each page deals with a different way of thinking and feeling about time. I have chosen short texts to illustrate each image. These different ways include thinking of time in personal terms, as being fragile; of time as being eternal; of time as fleeting. Time can be thought of as being elastic. Time is also seen as flowing constantly in one direction. Perhaps it had a beginning and will have an end. It can be thought of as being destructive. In Hinduism time is thought to be a necessary condition of all growth and decay, and is considered cyclical. Time is also seen as a manifestation of God. People have tried to conquer time by creating works that last well beyond their lifetimes. Certainly time can be measured, and because of this I have included a clock, a calendar, an hourglass, and a sundial in my book. But measurement is only one way to think of time, and these images are not the major focus of the book."Text include excerpts from Sonnet XII and King Henry the Fourth by William Shakespeare; The Battles of Coxinga by Chikamatsu; Walden by Henry David Thoreau; The Poet's Fame by Richard Watson Gilder; A Brief History of Time by Stephen W. Hawking; The Vishnu Purana translated by Horace Hayman Wilson; Hymns of the Atharva-Veda translated by Maurice Bloomfield; Tirumantiram by Tirumular, translated by Dr. B.

        Red Square / the next word

      Victoria, Australia:: Electio Editions,, 2012.. Edition of 45. 6 x 9.75"; 28 pages plus free end pages. Letterpress printed with Dante & wood types printed in red, blue, yellow, and gold. Printed on vintage Barcham Green India Office or Ruscombe India Office paper. Bound with Ruscombe paper over boards. Designed, printed, and bound by Alan Loney. In slipcase. Signed and numbered. Of the edition of 45, 40 are for sale. Alan Loney: "This book derives from putting two small obsessions together and seeing what happens. The first is with the typographical wonder of Hendrik Werkman, 1882 - 1945, and his remarkable periodical 'The Next call', printed in nine issues from 1923 to 1926. Each issue was 8 pages long, in approximately 40 copies, and designed & printed entirely from the materials of his print shop in Groningen, Holland (see H N Werkman by Alsoton W Purvis, Yale University Press, 2004). My second obsession is the imaginary exhibition outlined by Arthur C Danto in his now famous book The transfiguration of the commonplace (Harvard University Press 1981) where he poses a thorny set of intellectual problems around the question of the wording one attaches to paintings. Simply, Danto's exhibition was a series of red rectangles, all looking the same, but all painted by different artists, and each with a different title. This apparently simple proposition created for Danto one of the knottiest philosophical speculations in contemporary criticism. My book is designed to honor both these men, the material printer who said 'I produce designs during the courses of printing', and the intellectual who wrote 'I am speaking as a philosopher, construing the gesture as a philosophical act'. The pages of the 'exhibition' appear on the rectos only. The texts on the versos are constructed solely from all the Dutch words that in their spelling are also English words in Werkman's texts thru out the nine issues of 'The next call.

First edition, signed, limited to 80 copies, this is the 131st book of the press, on various papers with art by many of the artists, including the printer / publisher / author, Walter Hamady. Page size: 10-1/2 x 7 inches; 80pp. Bound by the printer / publisher / author and Scott Keller. Hamady punched and sewed the text block which Scott Keller cased it in tan cloth printed with image of the author printed in brown across top 5/6 of spine extending 1/3 into covers. Walter Hamady's unpublished Journals (daily writings since 1963) might well be the ultimate source book for 20th century American book arts. In TIMELINE, he lets the reader sample journal entries from the first 10 years, with references to authors and artists he has published as well as his own writing and printing, papermaking, and binding. This is a provocative and beautiful book. The "List of Illustrations" page is stunning; the Preface page is magical. Stamped and collaged, amended, with shaped texts, this could only be the work of Walter Hamady.
