        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.

        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.
