        Sacred Geometry - Carduelis

      Ashveville, North Carolina:: Daniel Essig,, 2013.. One-of-a-kind. 13.75 x 15 x 4" book sculpture. Materials: box elder, Italian olive, mahogany, milk paint, nails, thorn, antique text pages, sealing wax, mica, fossil. Miniature book: 1.25 x 1.75", wooden boards, leather and nail closure, coptic and Ethiopian bindings. Signed and dated by the artist on the last page of the miniature book. Daniel Essig: "Sacred Geometry - Carduelis is an Italy-inspired work combined with my Sacred Geometry series. The European Goldfinch was frequently seen in Italian paintings and symbolized prophecy." Daniel Essig, The Penland Book of Handmade Books: "Sacred Geometry … draws inspiration from a number of sources, including medieval reliquaries and African nail figures, and as with all my work, it has an Ethiopian book at its heart. Rather than stretch the elements of the book … I make a fairly standard small book the centerpiece of a work of sculpture. "The most striking aspect of Sacred Geometry is the halo of nails, which I borrowed from n'kisi nkondi nail figures, wooden sculptures made by the Kongo peoples of central Africa and used for protecting the village, curing illnesses, and settling disputes. Inside a cavity in the figure's head or stomach were placed ritual substances, such as herbs, animal bones, fur, and seeds - a detail similar to my own use of found objects. Each of the nails driven into a n'kisi figure represents one occasion when the power of the figure was invoked. "To me, the nails suggest a defense, like the quills of a porcupine. In medieval Europe, books were so rare and precious that they were chained to library shelves, and in some of my work I chain books, to suggest their preciousness. In Sacred Geometry, it is the nails that provide the protection."

Cover offset printed in black + pattern YK and metallic ink on Mohawk Superfine. Bound using Japanese stab binding. Paper-covered boards and cloth spine. Interior pages a combination of inkjet and offset print on Asuka and Mohawk Superfine papers.Ideas / Index / Colophon: "All the photographs (except two images downloaded from the Library of Congress Website, digital collages, design, prepress, printing, and binding are by me, Brad Freeman. The printing of the two books is either offset on the Heidelberg GTO with Mohawk Superfine and Astrobrite black or inkjet on the Epson 9800 with Asuka kozo paper. All printing was done at the Center for Book and Paper, Columbia College Chicago, in 2012 and 2013. The binding and box-drawer construction were completed in 2014 at my studio in Chicago."Most of the photographs for this project were taken while on a trip to Japan in 2011 with my wife Yukie Kobayashi. A few photographs from Chicago, Portugal, and Newfoundland are included. "SUMMO GEISHA SASHIMI consists of two sequences - on each verso page a single photograph of a sumo mater is repeated over and over through all the pages while zooming in on a solitary detail - one moment of time is displayed as the view comes closer and closer to a particular detail of the larger photograph on each subsequent page. In a complementary manner, a sequence of photographs taken during a period of about twenty minutes is presented on all the recto pages. The intention was to take advantage of the book's verso-recto form and create a correspondence among the images across the gutter and through the pages that would not have been possible if each sequence was presented alone. " A visual poem, FLOATING BRIDGE OF DREAMS is a presentation of images arranged in such a way as to provide associations and enhance their meaning as the pages are turned with an ineluctable drive toward the end. The title comes from a phrase used in The Tale of Genji by Shikibu Murasaki. Three kinds of paper - Mohawk Superfine, Asuka kozo, and Astrobrite black - were used as a way to explore the possibilities of various offset and inkjet printing techniques. Also, the different weight, drape, and texture of the papers enhance the haptic quality of the viewing experience."Playing with and making visual patterns - some created from by photographs - was given a fresh impetus in Japan and Portugal by, for instance , kimonos, decorative paper, ceramic tiles, and architectural details….The patterns in FLOTATING BRIDGE were created from my photographs - highly manipulated in Photoshop - of the garden my wife Yukie cultivates fat our home in Chicago…."The photographs in the books here were developed into sequentially arranged associative collages - the trace of origin remains. JAB draft on sumo geisha sashimi: "The photographs that comprise the book sumo geisha sashimi were taken by me during a trip to Japan in 2011. The photograph of a televised sumo wrestling match with the audience in the background repeats on each verso page through the entire book. The image enlarges slightly with each turn of the page - we are zooming in toward a geisha in the audience."The images on the recto are a sequence of photographs taken during a period of about thirty minutes of a man butchering (sabuku - cutting with a sharp blade) a tuna at the Tokyo fish market. This is an early step in the process of making sashimi."The book consists of two temporal systems appearing at the same time, with one time system on the verso and one on the recto. Both temporal systems exist simultaneously on the plane of the page spread with the gutter separating the two systems. On each verso page one moment is captured in a photograph and gradually enlarges with each turn to reveal the geisha. On the recto a sequence of moments captured photographically displays the butchering of a tuna."The codex form provides the perfect container for linking these two time systems to create an associative viewing experience."A couple of the issues on my mind during the making of this book included a feminist critique on the position of the geisha and the ecological implications of over-fishing. I was also considering the idea of performance - the wrestling match and the butchering of the tuna are performances with an audience. The geisha in this case is in the audience - a role reversal for her since she is usually the performer - geisha means artist in Japanese and her performances include dancing, singing, and playing a musical instrument.

        Cranium Architecture

      London: Hamiltons Gallery, 2013. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. As new. Oblong folio. Altogether 69, [3] pp. including 27 superb photographic plates, each with captions on opposite page. The new catalogue raisonne of Penn's astonishing "Cranium" series. The photographs were first exhibited in 1989 at Pace Gallery London, accompanied only by a flimsy 36 page catalogue. "Cranium Architecture" sees Irving Penn create a beautiful, absorbing study of animal skulls from the collection of the Narodni National Museum in Prague. From gorilla to giraffe, the photographer treats each subject with fastidious equality - zooming in or moving away to ensure that all the skulls are the same size and placing them in a simple white background. Abstracting the objects so is disorientating and challenges the viewer to look at them in a different way. As the series' title suggests we are encouraged to view each skull as a unique but familiar construction, created by the powerful yet sensitive hand of nature, to house the most precious of organs - that which defines and directs us, both physically and mentally. Penn rarely spoke to explain his work, but these spare words printed in the first exhibition catalogue (1989) serve to enlighten us somewhat on his inspiration, "An exquisite edifice of living machine. Hard chambers of bone to guard soft organs, protected conduits and channels." The photographer's appreciation of his subject is clear here and reiterated by the care he took producing the series' exquisite silver prints. Although well known for his portraits, Penn did on occasion throughout his long and illustrious career, turn his attention to still life, notably human skulls in the late 1970s. Penn's masterpiece, Poor Lovers (1979), an image of two nuzzling skulls, is a seminal example of many compositions that reveal his interest in classical 'vanitas' painting. Further, the photograph seems to connect us directly with the very living, emotional character of these 'lovers'. Similarly, the skulls of Cranium Architecture allow us an insight into the character of the animal they belong to. Despite being separated from all the fleshy, soft elements of themselves, the personality and temperament of each animal seems to leap out at us. As with Poor Lovers Penn has, through his remarkable skill and sensibility, once more transformed still lives into sublime and enlightening physiognomic portraits. The largest exposition of this series for over two decades was shown at Hamiltons throughout the summer of 2013. A catalogue raisonné, which includes an essay by renowned photography critic Francis Hodgson was published by Hamiltons Gallery, in collaboration with the Irving Penn Foundation at this time. For further details and availability, please contact the gallery.

My parents were always fighting, my mother had mental illness, and with each break-up they had, they bought and sold a house, splitting up my brother and I, but eventually getting back together. Then, the cycle would repeat itself again within a year."I made the covers of the book out of random cereal boxes. Each one is a little bit different.

        Venice. A Poem in Latin ? with an English version by Robert Crawford and eight photogravures by Norman McBeath

      Edinburgh: Easel Press, 2013. Edition of 20 copies, printed on Fabriano Artistico, signed in ink by Crawford and McBeath on the colophon leaf. With 8 photogravure plates, each numbered and signed by the artist in pencil. Loose sheets, title page and sectional titles printed in burgundy and black, ff. [1, title], [1]-16 [colophon], printed rectos only, foot untrimmed. 1 vols. Folio. In publisher's black cloth folding box. As new. 'An Unknown Renaissance Gem' : One of 20 copies Far from home, facing the Adriatic, I stopped, stunned by that city rising there Dead-centre in the waves [. . .] Overcome, I simply started crying At all that had gone wrong with my own life, Until a Naiad stepped before my eyes, So beautiful I caught my breath. I saw [. . .] Long poem, composed in Latin by James Crichton (1560-1582), 'the Admirable Crichton,' a young Scottish polymath whose family was closely linked to the house of Stewart. Crichton, an accomplished swordsman, travelled on the continent. He came to Venice in 1580, and composed his long poem, as "part of his successful wooing of Venetian society. It is a young man's rhetorical exercise, but also a panoptic work of genuine accomplishment ... it communicates, too, the tang of struggle and pain" (from Crawford's preface). It was included in 1637 in the Delitiae Poetarum Scotorum, the first anthology of Scottish poetry. Crichton died in a swordfight in Mantua in 1582; his memory has been cherished in Scotland, from a mid-seventeenth century poem by Sir Thomas Urquhart to the 1902 play by J.M. Barrie. The present edition includes the Latin text, an original English translation by Robert Crawford, with eight atmospheric plates of Venice by Norman McBeath. Robert Crawford is author of A Scottish Assembly (1990), Full Volume (2008), and he has translated the Latin verse of George Buchanan and Arthur Johnston in Apollos of the North (2006). Norman McBeath is an acclaimed photographer and printmaker whose work includes a collaboration with Paul Muldoon, Plan B (2009), and several authors have produced original work in response to his photographs, including Jeannette Winterson (Oxford at Night, 2006), A.L. Kennedy (Evidence, 2006), and Janice Galloway (City Stories, 2008). "Robert Crawford's and Norman McBeath's Venice provides a radiant new setting for a virtually unknown Renaissance gem - James Crichton's awestruck poetic response to the city's sea-girt beauty and dazzling intellectual culture. Crawford's ebullient English perfectly captures the breathless emotion and headlong imagination of Crichton's Latin, while Norman McBeath's photogravures enable us to marvel along with the poet at the city's haunting strangeness and grandeur. Crawford's spirited translation gives the lie to the ODNB's comment that Crichton's brilliant reputation rests on 'no adequately objective record' and will surely excite a new interest in the period's neo Latin poetry." - Lorna Hutson. A beautiful production of a remarkable poem.
