      Orinda, California: Donna Day Westerman, 2014. Limited Edition. Stiff boards. Fine. Westerman, Donna Day. No. 4 of 20, large quarto size, three-panel woodcut on six folded leaves, signed by Donna Day Westerman. Limited edition, number 4 of 20. Donna Day Westerman is a printmaker and painter in the Bay Area of California. [She is] "interested in traditional and historical media - particularly, woodcuts, wood-engravings and egg tempera - used in a contemporary manner. Working from close observation, and occasionally referring to [her] own photographs, [she] conceptually reduce[s] realistic nature to calligraphic or glyph-like notations. A kind of erasure takes place as the visual abundance... is distilled into the essence of the place. Other senses, such as sound and touch often inform the visual... A challenge... has been to capture the powerful ephemeral forms of fog and water in the hard-edged medium of wood... the medium itself determines much of the outcome." (N.B., from the artist's web site). This work, with the simple title of "L", which stands for low-pressure system, or "low", enables one to see the beauty and majesty of simple weather formations which can morph into majestic displays. ***DESCRIPTION: Original stiff handmade red paper wrappers, backstrip opens so the accordion style square format can be displayed in a connected elongated format, three-panel woodcut printed in gray; 12" x 9', illustrated title-page printed in red and gray, Perpetua type, Somerset paper, 12 1/8" x 12 1/8" when closed, six folded leaves including title-page and colophon, limited edition, number 4 of 20, signed by Donna Day Westerman. Housed in an archival gray cloth clamshell box with paper title inlaid to upper board. ***CONDITION: A fine copy, no flaws to the delicate paper binding, leaves are bright, rich woodcut impression, beautiful cloth clamshell box for preservation purposes, a fine copy signed and numbered by Donna Day Westerman. We acquired this item new directly from the Artist, a fine, lovely copy. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.

         Poetry at the Edge: Five Contemporary California Poets

      Book Club of California, San Francisco 2014 - A beautifully printed collection of works by five major California poets: Joseph Stroud, Kay Ryan, Gary Young, Martha Ronk, and Michael Hannon. Signed by all five poets. 300 numbered copies were printed and bound. A certain number of copies were issued in unbound sheets, which were lettered, not numbered. This copy, letter 'C,' is in a gorgeous, unique, Tudor-style binding by Coleen Curry.Poetry at the Edge: Five Contemporary California Poets is the Book Club of California's 233rd publication, printed in the Centennial year of their printing program. It was designed and edited by Carolee Campbell, the proprietor of Ninja Press, founded in 1984. Her highly-coveted fine press books include The Book of Silences by Robert Bringhurst, 2000; The Persephones by Nathaniel Tarn, 2009; and Lives of the Artists by W.S. Merwin, 2013. Each copy of Poetry at the Edge contains two photographs by Campbell, also an accomplished photographer. The book was letterpress printed by Norman Clayton at Classic Letterpress in Ojai, California. The typeface is Walbaum. The text was printed onto Zerkall Frankfurt paper with Zerkall Nideggen for the endpapers. The photographs were digitally printed at Classic Letterpress using Epson UltraChrome K3 inks. 140 of the numbered copies, designated for the Book Club of California's Standing Order members, include a laid in signed broadside of a poem by former United States Poet Laureate and MacArthur Fellow Kay Ryan. The broadside was also designed by Carolee Campbell and letterpress printed by Norman Clayton. Carolee Campbell writes in her introduction to the book: This volume gathers together the voices of five poetic masters, each distinct one from the other, yet all identical in their unerring ability to read the warms and the cools of the human heart. While they make their home in California, they are poets of the world. Each has charted a disparate course, mapping the terrain through which they travel their separate landscapes with a streamlined diction. Coleen Curry's design for Poetry at the Edge was largely inspired by three features of the book: the flow and colors in the second photograph by Carolee Campbell, the many references throughout the book to shimmering light and water, and, especially, a single verse in Joseph Stroud's poem "Death in the Tehachapis:"Imagine a sea of ultramarine suspending a million jellyfish as soft as moons. Imagine the interlocking uninsistent tunes of drifting things.Curry, like these poets, lives at the edge. A resident of Muir Beach, CA, her studio overlooks the Pacific Ocean, with ever-changing views of the rocky, sandy shore, the sea, and wildlife. An avid swimmer, trail runner, and rock climber, Curry draws from a vast collection of sight, sound, and texture experiences for artistic inspiration. Curry says: I am fascinated with contrast of texture, form and movement, incorporating asymmetry and Earth elements. By utilizing a combination of traditional materials, found objects, and modified decorative techniques, my aim is to craft bindings that provide a visual, sensual, and tactile experience.She succeeds spectacularly.Coleen Curry is an award winning binder, exhibits internationally, and her work is held in many private collections and in institutions such as The Boston Athenaeum.Curry bound her first book in 2003 at the American Academy of Bookbinding in Colorado and graduated in 2009 with a diploma in Fine Binding. Continually seeking to hone her craft, Curry has studied with a still growing international roster of fine binders, including Monique Lallier, Dominic Riley, Luigi Castiglioni, Hélène Jolis, Sün Evrard, and Sol Rèbora. Curry now teaches at AAB and is also an assistant to Don Glaister.Traditional laced-in full leather Tudor-style binding in goatskin and water buffalo in hues of grey.

         A Brief History Of Seven Killings

      New York City, NY: Riverhead Books(2014). First Edition / First Printing. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket. 688 pages. The author's breakthrough third novel. One of the most sensational literary events of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the British Edition, which was published six months later. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Marlon James' "A Brief History of Seven Killings". The single greatest "breakthrough" writer from the Caribbean since V. S. Naipaul. As is now well-known, the title is doubly ironic: It spans three decades, and at 688 pages, is not brief at all. At the same time, Bob Marley's life was very brief indeed: While he survived the ferocious attempt on his life, he soon died of cancer at the age of 36. With its cacophony of multiple, anguished voices, the novel is dense yet rewarding, a triumph of linguistic and literary virtuosity. "A great book. Its achievement goes far beyond opening up the terrible moment in the life of a great musician. He gives us the streets, the people, and especially the desperate, the Jamaicans whom Marley exhorted to: 'Open your eyes and look within: / Are you satisfied with the life you're living? ' " (The Boston Globe). Marley is not a character in the novel, whose single most brilliant stroke is that the story is told by (and is about) Marley's would-be killers. And then some. Marley is instead The Singer, an inescapable presence, whose actual life is telegraphed by Marlon James: Bullet points, as it were, about the single greatest Jamaican figure, a universal icon, who can only be gleaned from a distance, in a feat of novelistic poise. "An amazing novel of power, corruption, and lies. I can't think of a better one I've read this century" (Irvine Welsh). An absolute "must-have" title for Marlon James collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed, dated, and inscribed ("lined") in blue ink-pen on the title page by the author: "Marlon James 10.31.15 'Listen. Dead people never stop talking' ". The latter is the novel's stunning first two lines. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Chicago Humanities Festival 2015 Souvenir Program during which event his signature was obtained. This title is a great book. This is one of very few such signed, dated, and inscribed ("lined") copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Almost all other copies available online are subsequent printings. The true first is the American. The British Edition was published six months later, and as such, does not have the same collectible value. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Booker Prize for "A Brief History of Seven Killings" in 2015. One of the most brilliant novelists of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER COPIES OF THIS TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 159448600X.

         Poetry at the Edge: Five Contemporary California Poets

      San Francisco: Book Club of California, 2014. Signed Limited Edition. Full leather. Fine. Carolee Campbell. A beautifully printed collection of works by five major California poets: Joseph Stroud, Kay Ryan, Gary Young, Martha Ronk, and Michael Hannon. Signed by all five poets. 300 numbered copies were printed and bound. A certain number of copies were issued in unbound sheets, which were lettered, not numbered. This copy, letter 'C,' is in a gorgeous, unique, Tudor-style binding by Coleen Curry. Poetry at the Edge: Five Contemporary California Poets is the Book Club of California's 233rd publication, printed in the Centennial year of their printing program. It was designed and edited by Carolee Campbell, the proprietor of Ninja Press, founded in 1984. Her highly-coveted fine press books include The Book of Silences by Robert Bringhurst, 2000; The Persephones by Nathaniel Tarn, 2009; and Lives of the Artists by W.S. Merwin, 2013. Each copy of Poetry at the Edge contains two photographs by Campbell, also an accomplished photographer. The book was letterpress printed by Norman Clayton at Classic Letterpress in Ojai, California. The typeface is Walbaum. The text was printed onto Zerkall Frankfurt paper with Zerkall Nideggen for the endpapers. The photographs were digitally printed at Classic Letterpress using Epson UltraChrome K3 inks. 140 of the numbered copies, designated for the Book Club of California's Standing Order members, include a laid in signed broadside of a poem by former United States Poet Laureate and MacArthur Fellow Kay Ryan. The broadside was also designed by Carolee Campbell and letterpress printed by Norman Clayton. Carolee Campbell writes in her introduction to the book: This volume gathers together the voices of five poetic masters, each distinct one from the other, yet all identical in their unerring ability to read the warms and the cools of the human heart. While they make their home in California, they are poets of the world. Each has charted a disparate course, mapping the terrain through which they travel their separate landscapes with a streamlined diction. Coleen Curry's design for Poetry at the Edge was largely inspired by three features of the book: the flow and colors in the second photograph by Carolee Campbell, the many references throughout the book to shimmering light and water, and, especially, a single verse in Joseph Stroud's poem "Death in the Tehachapis:" Imagine a sea of ultramarine suspending a million jellyfish as soft as moons. Imagine the interlocking uninsistent tunes of drifting things. Curry, like these poets, lives at the edge. A resident of Muir Beach, CA, her studio overlooks the Pacific Ocean, with ever-changing views of the rocky, sandy shore, the sea, and wildlife. An avid swimmer, trail runner, and rock climber, Curry draws from a vast collection of sight, sound, and texture experiences for artistic inspiration. Curry says: I am fascinated with contrast of texture, form and movement, incorporating asymmetry and Earth elements. By utilizing a combination of traditional materials, found objects, and modified decorative techniques, my aim is to craft bindings that provide a visual, sensual, and tactile experience. She succeeds spectacularly. Coleen Curry is an award winning binder, exhibits internationally, and her work is held in many private collections and in institutions such as The Boston Athenaeum. Curry bound her first book in 2003 at the American Academy of Bookbinding in Colorado and graduated in 2009 with a diploma in Fine Binding. Continually seeking to hone her craft, Curry has studied with a still growing international roster of fine binders, including Monique Lallier, Dominic Riley, Luigi Castiglioni, Hélène Jolis, Sün Evrard, and Sol Rèbora. Curry now teaches at AAB and is also an assistant to Don Glaister. Traditional laced-in full leather Tudor-style binding in goatskin and water buffalo in hues of grey. Silver goatskin onlays intertwined with sanded, polished, carbon tooled grey goatskin. Polished, foil-decorated Lotka paper edge-to-edge doublures and blue-grey suede fly-leaves. Title in silver foil topped with carbon. Bound by Coleen Curry in 2017. Housed in a custom clamshell box by the binder. 15cm x 27cm x 1cm.

      Orinda, California: Donna Day Westerman, 2014. Limited Edition. Stiff boards. Fine. Westerman, Donna Day. No. 4 of 20, large quarto size, three-panel woodcut on six folded leaves, signed by Donna Day Westerman. Limited edition, number 4 of 20. Donna Day Westerman is a printmaker and painter in the Bay Area of California. [She is] "interested in traditional and historical media - particularly, woodcuts, wood-engravings and egg tempera - used in a contemporary manner. Working from close observation, and occasionally referring to [her] own photographs, [she] conceptually reduce[s] realistic nature to calligraphic or glyph-like notations. A kind of erasure takes place as the visual abundance... is distilled into the essence of the place. Other senses, such as sound and touch often inform the visual... A challenge... has been to capture the powerful ephemeral forms of fog and water in the hard-edged medium of wood... the medium itself determines much of the outcome." (N.B., from the artist's web site). This work, with the simple title of "L", which stands for low-pressure system, or "low", enables one to see the beauty and majesty of simple weather formations which can morph into majestic displays. ***DESCRIPTION: Original stiff handmade red paper wrappers, backstrip opens so the accordion style square format can be displayed in a connected elongated format, three-panel woodcut printed in gray; 12" x 9', illustrated title-page printed in red and gray, Perpetua type, Somerset paper, 12 1/8" x 12 1/8" when closed, six folded leaves including title-page and colophon, limited edition, number 4 of 20, signed by Donna Day Westerman. Housed in an archival gray cloth clamshell box with paper title inlaid to upper board. ***CONDITION: A fine copy, no flaws to the delicate paper binding, leaves are bright, rich woodcut impression, beautiful cloth clamshell box for preservation purposes, a fine copy signed and numbered by Donna Day Westerman. We acquired this item new directly from the Artist, a fine, lovely copy. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.

         The Three-body Problem/the Dark Forest/death's End: The "remembrance Of Earth's Past" Trilogy

      London, England: Head Zeus(2014). First Edition / First Printing. As New in As New Dust Jacket. 1514 pages. Rare Cixin Liu collectible set. Pristine copies of his "Remembrance of Earth's Past" Trilogy: "The Three-Body Problem", "The Dark Forest", and "Death's End", all signed and dated in person by Cixin Liu. "The Three-Body Problem" is also signed and dated in person by his translator, Ken Liu. The first appearances of the titles in English and in the United Kingdom. Precede and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in small and limited first print runs as hardcover originals only that sold out shortly after publication. The First Editions are now rare. Presents Cixin Liu's "Remembrance of Earth's Past" Trilogy in definitive English translations. All 1514 pages: "The Three-Body Problem" (399 pages); "The Dark Forest" (512 pages); and "Death's End" (604 pages). Brought to us by Ken Liu, himself a brilliant writer whose "The Paper Menagerie" was the first work of fiction to sweep the Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy Awards, and Joel Martinsen, one of the most respected translators of Chinese fiction in the West. "Set against the backdrop of China's Cultural Revolution, a secret military project sends signals into space to establish contact with aliens. An alien civilization on the brink of decline and destruction captures the signals, and makes plans to invade Earth. Meanwhile, on Earth, different camps start forming, planning either to welcome the superior beings and help them take over a world that they see as hopelessly corrupt, or to fight the invasion. A science-fiction masterpiece of enormous scope and vision" (Publisher's blurb). "A unique blend of scientific and philosophical speculation, conspiracy theory, and cosmology" (George R. R. Martin). More than any other genre, science fiction/fantasy is pure allegory: It is about our struggle to survive and the search for meaning and transcendence in this life ("place") and in the universe ("time"). Every great fantasy novel such as Cixin Liu's aspires to be the most visionary and compelling version of the uber-narrative about our unending struggle and quest. An absolute "must-have" title for Cixin Liu collectors. These copies of "The Three-Body Problem", "The Dark Forest", and "Death's End" are all very boldly and beautifully signed (in Chinese characters) and dated in black pen-marker on the title page by the author: "Cixin Liu 14.10.2016" . They are signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. "The Three-Body Problem" is also very boldly and beautifully signed and dated in black pen by the translator: "Ken Liu Sep 3, 2016". Cixin Liu made a rare, one-time-only appearance in London to celebrate the completion of his Trilogy in English, making these signed copies special as such. Laid-in are pristine copies of the Souvenir Materials of the event during which the signatures were obtained. These titles are great books. These are among very few such signed and dated copies of the First British Edition/First Printing still available online and are in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. Please note: Copies available online command up to $2000. This is surely a more accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed set thus. Two-time Winner of the Nebula Award. Cixin Liu is widely regarded as the greatest Chinese writer of our time in the science fiction/fantasy genre. A fine collectible set. . ISBN 0765377063.
