        Mogao

      Beijing, China:: Leilei Guo,, 2014.. Edition of 6. 19.5 x 10.5 x 1"; 12 leaves. Silkscreen prints. Paste paper. Photographs. Flexible binding to allow circular display. Housed in four-flap portfolio case with leather tie closure. In cloth drawstring bag. Signed by the artist. Leilei Guo: "The cave temples of Mogao, situated near the old Silk Road oasis of Dunhuang in northwestern China and therefore also known as the Dunhuang caves, are among the world's most important sites for Buddhist art and afford one an unparalleled overview of one thousand years of Chinese painting. Last September, I finally did make a trip to Dunhuang. During this trip I visited the famed caves of Mogao, and in the meantime while exploring the city I also found that there were many symbols from cave paintings finding their way into daily life, in the surrounding living environment. All these scenes made me imagine how the ancient city looked like, and whether the people used to live lives just like those shown in the scenes on the cave walls. In any case I was truly inspired by the related historical possibilities behind the mural paintings and the appearance of this ancient life. And I would like that my book could, in a way, represent the contrast of real modern life and a thousand years of historical Buddhist stories.

        Mackerel Beach . A Winters Tale.

      Pelicano Press, Sydney, Australia 2014 - Artist's book, one of 26 copies, all on Rising Stonehenge paper for text and linocuts on Japanese Iwaki Mulberry paper, signed and lettered A-Z by the artist / author, Peter Kingston, who has also signed and numbered each of the 18 linocuts. Page size: 14 x 14 inches; 80pp; plus 1 double-width linocut (29 x 14 inches) printed in color and 1 color linocut (14 x 14 inches) with title and author and press as front wrappers, 18 single-page linocuts mounted to second recto of each folio, plus colophon folio. Bound: loose in wrappers of Japanese Iwaki Mulberry paper around Svecia Antiqua Chamois paper with first wrap-around linocut of fairy penguin on the underside of dock looking into water, artist / author, title, press, place and date of publication in white or blue or white and blue on black ground, linocut collaged again on front cover of box holding book, second wrap-around linocut of blues and yellow of Pittwater (a semi-mature tide- dominated drowned valley estuary) with Mackerel Beach Ferry in the rain, pelicans overhead, fairy penguin on back; housed in custom-made box of radiata pine by Ian McLeod, the lid of box with cover linocut repeated showing author, title and publisher, inside front cover of box with black and white linocut labeled "Catching the ferry turbulence" and the inside bottom of box with black and white linocut, the same Mackerel Beach Pier linocut this time in "trial" format without the lettering, the boxed book housed in custom-made Calico bag silkscreened by Mary-Lou. The book was designed, printed and assembled by noted Australian printer / publisher / bookseller, Nicholas Pounder. The text is printed in 14pt. Bembo on an Epson 3880 using archivally stable Japanese pigments. The linocuts were editioned by the artist. Set in the confines of Australia's second oldest nature reserve, fisherman and endangered species, as well as more ordinary creatures, are featured in this story. It is one of gentle bemusement, detailing the everyday in life juxtaposed with the wondrous. A fairy penguin squawks at a Scottish terrier who is supine on the dock in the pouring rain. The fairy penguin pictured on the front wrapper, we learn, was rescued from a fishing line. After his release, he swam to shore and spent a week under the dock before returning to Lion Island Preserve. Note is made of a border collie who lived in a public phone box, waiting for the return of his owners who had given up looking for him and gone home on the ferry. A nurse, the sole passenger on the last night ferry, comes to the rescue of the ferry pilot when his rope misses the bollard and he falls into the water. The nurse grabs the other end of the rope and holds on until the pilot can climb back aboard. The tales are a treat and combined with the colorful, playful, wry images, they come alive and touch a note of understanding and sympathy for the natural world and all in it.Peter Kingston (b. 1943) has established a reputation as one of the most intriguing Australian artists of his generation. In his own country, his work is featured in the Museum of Sydney, the Australian National Gallery, Canberra, Parliament House, Canberra, and the State Library of New South Wales. His books have been acquired in many other countries, including Harvard University, the Library of Congress, Citigroup, the Jack Ginsberg Collection of Artists Books in South Africa, and the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, as well as significant private collections. His most recent books, A LITTLE TRAIN JOURNEY and SHARK-NET SEAHORSES OF BALMORAL were sold out almost on publication. SHARK-NET SEAHORSES was done in collaboration with poet Robert Adamson and, as with this book, MACKEREL BEACH, printer / publisher Nicholas Pounder. Mr. Kingston's concern with environmental causes is manifest here. He enlists his readers' support with humor and good will. As an artist, he is at the top of his game; that his talent serves his cause is not strained. Rather it is fortuitous. See an Imag [Attributes: Soft Cover]

First Edition/First Printing. 535 pages. The author's second breakthrough novel. One of the most important literary events of our time.

Published in a very small and limited print run as an "Indispensable" title whose limitation is not stated. The "Indiespensable" Edition is now rare. The production is elegant: It comes in a blue cloth slipcase and with a bonus "Author Interview" Booklet that is available through this special edition only. Presents, in its most beautiful collectible format, Anthony Doerr's "All The Light We Cannot See". "About a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, he illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer whose sentences never fail to thrill" (Publisher's blurb) . An absolute "must-have" title for Anthony Doerr collectors. This is a copy of the Powell's "Indiespensable" Edition, and it is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Anthony Doerr. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page, as many copies available online are. This title will become a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is one of only two such copies of the "Indiespensable" Slipcased Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty.

I work with knives, tweezers and surgical tools to carve one page at a time, exposing each layer while cutting around ideas and images of interest. Nothing inside the books is relocated or implanted, only removed. Images and ideas are revealed to expose alternate histories and memories. … "'If I have an anatomy book I think of the book as a body and approach it like a dissection.

        Remnants. Observations and Specimens Viewed Through the Lens of Four Women Naturalists

      Gazelle and Goat, San Francisco 2014 - Hardcover. Number 7 of 20 copies. Signed by Rhiannon Alpers, the book artist. Rhiannon has been a book artist, maker of paper, and bookbinder based in San Francisco for fifteen years. She is fascinated by structures and boxes, and much of her work is focused on nature. With Remnants, she brings the world of four historical women naturalists to life and re-frames their stories in a more personal context. The naturalists are Maria Sibylla Merian, Mary Anning, Clara E. Cummings, and Marianne North. In creating this imaginative work, Rhiannon writes "how might investigating the remnants left behind by these.female naturalists interweave their story with the specimens they spent a lifetime pursuing? Remnants is a quest to find a new perspective by viewing nature through their lens and to better understand their world." The 4 x 6" book has milk-painted and waxed wood covers bound with vellum straps and upholsterer tacks. There is a section for each of the four naturalists. The text is letterpress printed with digitally produced illustrations. It is housed in a 6.75 x 10.75" brownish-red clamshell variant box along with a collection of found and purchased frozen natural specimens under museum glass. A creative and evocative work in fine condition. ARTISTSBOOKS/031215. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        As I Ebb'd with the Ocean of Life

      East Hampton, NY. 2014. Unique artist's book, all on blue Saint-Armand paper, signed and dated by the artist, Barry McCallion on the final page. Page size: 7.5 x 11 inches; title-page plus 50pp. plus colophon. Bound: loose in original blue Saint-Armand paper wrappers housed in blue cloth over boards custom-made cloth clamshell box with collaged labels on front and spine taken from the titlepage and colophon of book. Each verso is hand-numbered by the artist on the blue Saint-Armand paper, with the text (from the Modern Library edition) typed by the artist in 14pt. Times New Roman copied onto yellow paper and collaged to the top border Richard de Bas cream wove sheets (5.5 x 7.5 inches) that are themselves collaged to the blue Saint-Armand. Below the text is an original abstract painting in various colored India inks onto which another collage of painted black paper, with wave-shaped top, forms the bottom edge. The verso of each page is on black mould-made Italian Revere paper, with the text printed in yellow on black smooth paper in "drop-out mirror-writing" collaged to the top of the black Revere paper page, the drawing below in white Koh-I-Noor White ink, with ink painted "wave" of black paper collaged to bottom of black sheet. From the "Sea-Drift" section of Whitman's LEAVES OF GRASS, "As I Ebb'd with the Ocean of Life" this well-known American poem was first published in "The Atlantic Monthly" in April, 1860 as "Bardic Symbols" and included in the 1860 edition of LEAVES OF GRASS. Critics have referred to this verse as a statement of Whitman's intellectual despair in which he questions the effectiveness of his writing. He writes of nature and decay by describing what the ocean brings in and out with the tides. With the energetic and colorful abstract images by Barry McCallion, one does not see dying and death - rather, the reader / viewer is caught in the constant push and pull of nature, re-birth and death, all with the images of the waning and waxing tides. The reader / viewer contemplates the mirror writing in white ink on the versos and has the sense of coming and going as it contrasts with the bright images on the rectos. The conclusion that they are each half of a whole is manifest. A wonderful visual interpretation of this great text. See an Image.

        SHAKE - The Ballad of the Blue Jean Bop

      Atelier Saint-Go, France:: Kamikaze Press,, 2014.. Edition of 30. 12 x 15.5" (380 x 302mm); 48 pages. Letterpress printed. Bound in bright yellow leather with red leather spine and title in blue leather inlays. In slipcase of blue leather boards and title in red leather inlays. Signed and numbered by the artist. Simon Redington: "I started with the idea of a book on Jazz or Blues using phonetic phrasings of scat or blues verse ... however it somewhere transformed into a homage to the Rock'n'Roll icon Gene Vincent, lacing his song 'Be Bop a Lula' around shapes and colours that have autobiographical resonances with my own childhood holidays on and around Brighton Pier." Be-Bop-A-Lula is a rockabilly song first recorded in 1956 by Gene Vincent and His Blue Caps. Timothy W. Booher, IMDb Mini Biography: "Rock 'n' roll pioneer Gene Vincent was born Eugene Vincent Craddock (Vincent Eugene according to some biographers) on February 11, 1935 in Norfolk, Virginia. He quit school at the age of 17 to join the Navy. His naval career was ended following a motorcycle accident while on shore leave in 1955. Shortly thereafter he heard an up and coming singer named Elvis Presley and decided on a singing career of his own. His excellent voice helped to hook him up with Norfolk disk jockey Tex Davis who pushed him through to Capitol Records where he recorded the million selling Be-Bop-A-Lula in 1956. While his first record earned him several movie appearances … and helped him to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, his success was short lived. His original Blue Caps band broke up fairly quickly and his fame in America dwindled as rebellious rockers of the 1950s were replaced by clean cut teen idols of the early 1960s. Vincent moved to Britain where he was a cult figure in 1959 and remained there for a decade when he returned to America in 1969 with a new record deal and enjoyed a brief revival amongst the hippy teenagers in California who revered him as a legend."

        THE TESTAMENT OF CYPRIAN THE MAGE. Encyclopedia Goetica Volume III, Comprehending The Book of Saint Cyprian & His Magical Elements and an Elucidation of the Testament of Solomon. Parts I-VI, Complete in Two Volumes. The fine ‘Infernal Pact’ edition, quarter bound in veiny vellum and custom marbled boards

      UK: Scarlet Imprint, 2014.. First Edition, First Printing. Deluxe Vellum & Marbled Boards. Fine in Slipcase/As New. First Edition, "Infernal Pact" issue. Two volumes. Royal Octavo, original marbled boards with vellum spines, all edges gilt, silk book marks, slipcased. 592 pp (283 + 266) pp, illustrated throughout throughout with charts, tables, seals etc. and punctuated by specially commissioned pen and ink illustrations by Oliver Liebeskind. Appendix, Bibliography & Indexes. Lavishly bound and printed in red and black ink throughout. This edition was limited to 72 numbered copies and it sold out almost immediately upon announcement. ¶ 'The Testament of Cyprian the Mage', comprehending The Book of Saint Cyprian and his Magical Elements and an elucidation of The Testament of Solomon, is the final work in Stratton-Kent's acclaimed 'Encyclopaedia Goetica' series which began with 'The True Grimoire', a working reconstruction of the 'Grimorium Verum', and was followed by the monumental two volume 'Geosophia: The Argo of Magic', which explored the necromantic Greek origins of Goetia. 'The Testament of Cyprian the Mage' is a fitting climax to this endeavour which has placed the author at the forefront of modern magic with a body of work that is both scholarly and aimed at practical application. All are standalone texts though benefit from being read as aspects of a single thesis: the importance of Goetia as the oldest continuous tradition of Western magic. 'The Testament of Cyprian the Mage' is an ambituous and far-seeing work, addressing two ends of the magical spectrum: the 'Testament of Solomon' and a version of the Iberian 'Book of Saint Cyprian'. In doing so, key aspects of magical practice are revealed. This work draws upon these texts to create a clear understanding of the practice of grimoire magic, not as a discrete or degenerate subset of ceremonial magic, but one which is integrated with folk magic and witchcraft. In particular we discover a shared dramatis personae, the infernal pact, and a common terrain of Wild Hunt and Sabbat. Within the text we encounter the Chiefs, Kings and Queens of the grimoire tradition; the magical role of the Decans and their stones and plants; lunar magic and magical animals; the gods of Time; the Sibyl and the Hygromanteia; Asmodeus and Oriens; Angelology, Theurgy, Conjunction and the Pact, the Angelic Vice-regent and thwarting Angels; Asclepius, Iamblichus and Neo-Platonism; Paracelsus and the Elemental Spirits; Necromancy, and the principles of spell work. As Jake writes, 'A primary purpose of this book is to explore the implicit mythology of grimoire spirits and the contexts from which it derives.' It does far more. This is a fundamental re-visioning of magic with profound implications for the magical revival which we are all engaged in. Jake Stratton-Kent has been a goetic magician since 1972, making more than forty years of continuous goetic practice. His practical work integrates the magical papyri, Italo-French grimoires in particular the Grimorium Verum and African traditional religions with a focus on Quimbanda and magia negra. His interest in magic spans the ancient, medieval, renaissance, and modern as well as stretching from the West to the Middle East and crucially, the New World. His scholarly approach is backed with a personal relationship with the spirits, which is rare to find in the modern world.

        Mackerel Beach ... A Winters Tale

      Sydney, Australia: Pelicano Press. 2014. Artist's book, one of 26 copies, all on Rising Stonehenge paper for text and linocuts on Japanese Iwaki Mulberry paper, signed and lettered A-Z by the artist / author, Peter Kingston, who has also signed and numbered each of the 18 linocuts. Page size: 14 x 14 inches; 80pp; plus 1 double-width linocut (29 x 14 inches) printed in color and 1 color linocut (14 x 14 inches) with title and author and press as front wrappers, 18 single-page linocuts mounted to second recto of each folio, plus colophon folio. Bound: loose in wrappers of Japanese Iwaki Mulberry paper around Svecia Antiqua Chamois paper with first wrap-around linocut of fairy penguin on the underside of dock looking into water, artist / author, title, press, place and date of publication in white or blue or white and blue on black ground, linocut collaged again on front cover of box holding book, second wrap-around linocut of blues and yellow of Pittwater (a semi-mature tide- dominated drowned valley estuary) with Mackerel Beach Ferry in the rain, pelicans overhead, fairy penguin on back; housed in custom-made box of radiata pine by Ian McLeod, the lid of box with cover linocut repeated showing author, title and publisher, inside front cover of box with black and white linocut labeled "Catching the ferry turbulence" and the inside bottom of box with black and white linocut, the same Mackerel Beach Pier linocut this time in "trial" format without the lettering, the boxed book housed in custom-made Calico bag silkscreened by Mary-Lou. The book was designed, printed and assembled by noted Australian printer / publisher / bookseller, Nicholas Pounder. The text is printed in 14pt. Bembo on an Epson 3880 using archivally stable Japanese pigments. The linocuts were editioned by the artist. Set in the confines of Australia's second oldest nature reserve, fisherman and endangered species, as well as more ordinary creatures, are featured in this story. It is one of gentle bemusement, detailing the everyday in life juxtaposed with the wondrous. A fairy penguin squawks at a Scottish terrier who is supine on the dock in the pouring rain. The fairy penguin pictured on the front wrapper, we learn, was rescued from a fishing line. After his release, he swam to shore and spent a week under the dock before returning to Lion Island Preserve. Note is made of a border collie who lived in a public phone box, waiting for the return of his owners who had given up looking for him and gone home on the ferry. A nurse, the sole passenger on the last night ferry, comes to the rescue of the ferry pilot when his rope misses the bollard and he falls into the water. The nurse grabs the other end of the rope and holds on until the pilot can climb back aboard. The tales are a treat and combined with the colorful, playful, wry images, they come alive and touch a note of understanding and sympathy for the natural world and all in it.Peter Kingston (b. 1943) has established a reputation as one of the most intriguing Australian artists of his generation. In his own country, his work is featured in the Museum of Sydney, the Australian National Gallery, Canberra, Parliament House, Canberra, and the State Library of New South Wales. His books have been acquired in many other countries, including Harvard University, the Library of Congress, Citigroup, the Jack Ginsberg Collection of Artists Books in South Africa, and the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, as well as significant private collections. His most recent books, A LITTLE TRAIN JOURNEY and SHARK-NET SEAHORSES OF BALMORAL were sold out almost on publication. SHARK-NET SEAHORSES was done in collaboration with poet Robert Adamson and, as with this book, MACKEREL BEACH, printer / publisher Nicholas Pounder. Mr. Kingston's concern with environmental causes is manifest here. He enlists his readers' support with humor and good will. As an artist, he is at the top of his game; that his talent serves his cause is not strained. Rather it is fortuitous.

        Shajahanabad

      Denver, Colorado:: Studio SML/k,, 2014.. Edition of 30. 6.5 x 4.5 x 3.25" case made with binder's board, a photographic filter, book cloth, leather, camera strap, and magnetic closure. Includes pamphlet (5.9 x 3.9"; 14 pages + Turkish map fold double page; sewn binding) with essays by both artists and map of city. 32 double-sided photo panels with tyvek and thread binding. Signed by the artists. Numbered. Sammy Lee: "Collaborative artists' book project with Joshua Bergeron, a Boulder-based photographer. …A book with documentary style, thirty-two photos capturing quotidian scenes from the streets of Old Delhi, India. "The book's viewing sequence and binding structure are based on the photographer's trail through the alleys of Old Delhi. Photo panels unfold left, right or sometime both directions, reminding the viewer of his roundabout journey. Rather than a finished photo album or edition, the collapsed book also looks like a casual stack of loose prints, or a pile of raw experiences, contained inside a black case reminiscent of early Kodak Brownie cameras from the 1900s. The shape is a reminder that the work is a vessel, carrying visceral experiences and memories. A strap that attaches to the box adds portability to this effect, allowing the viewer to engage further with the work by wearing it around the neck. "With no intention to filter the reality of Old Delhi, Bergeron's immersive images often depict harsh or abject conditions, but with an honesty that is quite beautiful. One cannot help but visualize taking his place, negotiating the tight alleyways saturated with new textures, colors, smells, sounds, and tastes.
