Als Fergus einen Schlaganfall hat, vergisst er fast alles aus seinem Leben. Da findet seine Tochter Sabrina seine Glasmurmel-Sammlung, von der er ihr nie etwas erzählt hat. In der Sammlung fehlen die wertvollsten Stücke, und Sabrina macht sich auf die Suche nach ihnen. Es stellt sich heraus, dass Fergus noch viel mehr Geheimnisse hatte, und alle scheinen mit den schillernden Kugeln verbunden zu sein. Doch wenn ihr Vater nicht der Mann ist, für den sie ihn gehalten hat - was bedeutet das für Sabrinas eigenes Leben? Die Geschichte eines Vaters, der Weg einer Tochter - der neue Bestseller von Cecelia Ahern, die weltweit Millionen von Leserinnen und Lesern begeistert.

Über Jahrzehnte baut er sich eine beeindruckende Sammlung auf, von der jedoch niemand etwas weiß. Als Fergus einen Schlaganfall hat, beginnt er zu vergessen. Da findet seine Tochter seine Murmelsammlung. Sabrina ist überrascht, dass ihr oft harter, distanzierter Vater sich so für die bezaubernden kleinen Glaskugeln begeistert hat. Als sie feststellt, dass ausgerechnet die wertvollsten Stücke aus der Sammlung fehlen, macht sie sich auf die Suche danach - ohne zu ahnen, dass es ihr ganzes Leben verändern wird.

        Thereafter

      San Francisco, CA 2015 - Artist's book, one of 19 copies, all on hand-made Frobisher white Old Master drawing and calligraphy paper custom made for the edition (with deckles on 3 sides) by Papeterie Saint-Armand, hand numbered and signed by the artist / author, Maro Vandorou on the colophon. Page size: 9.5 x 10 inches; 38pp. Bound: hand-sewn Sandy Tilcock in white hand-made cotton rag fiber paper with rough surface, 140lb. weight by Papeterie Saint-Armand, letterpress printed title in light grey Streetbrush type, housed in custom-made grey cloth over boards clamshell box with title in darker grey on front panel. Designed, written, original photography and transfer printing by the artist / author, Maro Vandorou. The text is printed letterpress in Garamond Italic, Myriad Pro, and Minion Pro by Sandy Tilcock at lone goose press. Artist Maro Vandorou has chosen the transformation of the genus Paeonia (peony) as the subject of her book. It is a flowering plant native to Asia, North America, and southern Europe, especially closely tied to Greece, thought myth - the physician Paeon was changed into the flower by Zeus (or Hades whose wound he healed) to protect him from the jealousy of the Greek god of medicine, Asclepius. From ancient times, the peony has been revered for its healing properties and used in Far Eastern medicine as well as Mediterranean cultures. With her own text and images, Ms. Vandorou documents the transformation in the coral "paeonia" from the brightly colored orange of the opening bloom to - in just seven days - white, nearly translucent petals. Her poem reflects the physical nature as well as the near mystical process of transfiguration. Her "Lexicon" defines the terms of her philosophical investigation of the meaning "paeonia" based on etymological analyses and resulting in "flower with the healing power of beauty" as well as "access to eternity through the portal of the soul." All is in accordance with the annagramatization rules of Plato as given in the dialogue "Cratylus."The photographic images of the vibrant coral peony morphing from bright orange to limp white are printed by the artist in a transfer process from her own photographs. This transfer process is based on that of monotype printing and involves printing the image on a specially coated transparency film using archival pigment inks with an Epson 3880. Once dried, the image surface of the transparency-film material is brushed with gelatin-like substance, and the image placed on dampened paper. When the transparency is lifted, the ink of the image has been transferred to paper. Obviously, no two images are identical, but the strength of the original is easily recognizable. The stunningly beautiful images are enhanced by the thoughtful text which is set in a small point size, and in grey. The words, rather than usurp or impinge on the images inspired by the natural world, lead the reader / viewer careful consideration of both. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The World Below the Brine

      East Hampton, NY, 2015. Unique artist's book, all on Richard de Bas cream wove paper, signed by the artist on the last page of the book, Barry McCallion / February 2015." Page size: 6-7/8 x 4-5/8 inches; [i-v] 24pp. + colophon. Bound: loose as issue, laid into salmon pink wrappers with handmade blue and pink paper over boards portfolio, laid into custom-made blue cloth over boards clamshell box with title printed in white on blue label, color reproduction of one of the full-page paintings in India and metallic inks and acrylics of the "Forests at the bottom of the sea ..." The text of Whitman's splendid poem is hand-lettered by the artist in multi-colored inks in irregular letters, filling each verso, the rectos happily accommodating the polychrome images of Whitman's imagined "other" world with its own life forms and resulting manners and mores. We are brought full circle by the poet's close, "The change onward from ours to that of beings who walk other spheres" and by the artist's images of other celestial objects viewed from a corner of earth. Whitman's romantic free-verse musings on diversity in nature and what peace and beauty is found therein is wonderfully served by the art of Barry McCallion.

        Il Giardino Palazzo Cappello Soranzo I. (The Garden Book) Text from The Aspern Papers by Henry James

      Dania Beach, FL, 2015. Unique artist's book, one in a series (yet to be created) using phrases or sentences from Henry James' THE ASPERN PAPERS, on acetate sheets, signed and dated by the artist, Claire Jeanine Satin, on a small piece of acetate, in black with the title of the book on the tiny folio, 1-1/4 x 2 inches. Page size: 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches; 24pp. Bound: by the artist, hand-sewn with clear nylon thread from which phrases from James' text are suspended, highlighted with colored beads in crystal, silver, and glass beads. The beads are also hand-studded on pages to highlight the garden's light and shadows. Housed in Plexi slipcase with paper label printed with book title. The artist has taken as inspiration the garden at the Palazzo Soranzo Capello in Venice for her images, as did Henry James. James used the Palazzo Soranzo Capello as the setting for the dilapidated home of Juliana Bordereau and her niece, Miss Tita, in his novella, THE ASPERN PAPERS (1888). The Palazzo Soranzo Capello dates from the 16th century and is now the headquarters of the Architectural Heritage and Landscape for the area around Venice, restored after years of neglect, and the gardens are justifiably famed. The artist has photographed the villa and its gardens, color printing (on a jet printer) her manipulated and altered images, sometimes doubling or shifting multiple images for emphasis of view while still maintaining visual honesty, on acetate and using a metallic fixative. The translucent images are thus viewed one through another, bringing a multi-dimensional feel to the book. The text is printed in green and includes James' descriptions of light and color in mysterious Venice. The images and words are perfect complements, and the reader / viewer has the sense of walking through these legendary gardens. A piece of book sculpture that is also a book, this is an exciting inspiration from a classic piece of American literature.

        Faksimile - Heilsspiegel aus dem Kloster Einiedeln. Ein Bilderreigen aus 176 Miniaturen zur biblischen Geschichte. Einsiedeln, Stiftsbibliothek, Cod. 206.

      Luzern, Quaternio, 2015 Faksimile: 2°, (3627,4 cm), 92 Seiten (46 Blatt); Kommentarband: 4° (29 x 20 cm), 318 S., einige Abb., Faks.: Ganzpergament-Bd. mit kalligraphischem Rückentitel; Kommentarbd.: Blauer OLwd. in OLwd.-Schmuckschuber. Beides in Acrylglas-Kassette., Verlagsfrisch Eins von 680 Exemplaren. - Originalgetreue Faksimile Der um 1450/1460 wahrscheinlich in den burgundischen Niederlanden entstandene lateinische Einsiedler Heilsspiegel gilt als einer der am reichsten ausgestatteten Heilsspiegel überhaupt. In 176 Miniaturen werden Szenen aus dem Neuen und dem Alten Testament zu einem engen Beziehungsgeflecht verwoben. mit dem der Buchmaler die Geschichte des Sündenfalls und der Erlösung der Menschheit von ihrer Erschaffung bis zum Jüngsten Gericht in lebendigen Bildern vor Augen führt. Damit illustriert der Heilsspiegel in Bild und Wort. was in so vielen mittelalterlichen Bildwerken begegnet. nämlich die Überzeugung. dass es einen direkten Zusammenhang zwischen dem Neuen und dem Alten Testament gibt. Die 176 mit zarten Farben lavierten Federzeichnungen schmücken in einer fortlaufenden Reihe die insgesamt 92 Seiten im Format 3627.4 cm. Höchst ungewöhnlich für einen Heilsspiegel ist. dass alle Ränder mit reichem Dornblattdekor in Gold geschmückt sind. Insgesamt 57 dreizeilige Zierinitialen auf Blattgoldgrund schmücken den Text. Mit dem Heilsspiegel wurde zu Beginn des 14. Jahrhunderts ein neuer Buchtypus geschaffen. der von Anfang an als Text-Bild-Programm konzipiert war. Der »Heilsspiegel« oder das Speculum humanae salvationis stellt einen direkten Zusammenhang zwischen dem Alten und dem Neuen Testament her: zu jedem Geschehnis aus dem Neuen Testament findet er drei Vorbilder vorzugsweise aus dem Alten Testament. die das neutestamentliche Geschehen vorankünden. Damit soll »bewiesen« werden. was der Inhalt des christlichen Glaubens ist: die Erlösung der Menschen durch Christus ist die Erfüllung der dem Volk Israel gegebenen Verheißung. Dieses sog. typologische Denken beherrscht das gesamte mittelalterliche Welt- und Geschichtsverständnis. und damit auch die durch die bildenden Künste dargestellten Themen. Der Heilsspiegel wendet sich sowohl an Geistliche wie an gebildete Laien. Die Texte erläutern die Bilder. und die theologischen Aussagen sind dank der Bilder schneller erfassbar. Die Bilder fungieren als eingängige Verstärker. rufen in Erinnerung und erläutern. was der Laie auch beim Kirchgang auf Wandmalereien. Altartafeln oder in den Glasfenstern abgebildet sah. Eine der schönsten Handschriften. die diese Überlegungen in ausdrucksstarke Bilder übersetzt. ist der Heilsspiegel aus Kloster Einsiedeln. Die Bilder erzählen aber nicht nur die biblische Geschichte. sondern auch vom mittelalterlichen Alltagsleben. Viel Platz wird architektonischen Darstellungen eingeräumt: mächtige Stadttore. Tempelarchitekturen. Brunnen zum Wasserschöpfen. Werkstätten wie z.B. eine Schmiede mit Blasebalg oder ein Kran auf einer Baustelle künden von einem städtischen Ambiente voller Leben. Herrscher. Ritter. Handwerker bevölkern viele Miniaturen. Das Medium der Federzeichnung bietet dabei ganz besondere künstlerische Perspektiven. da sie eine viel höhere Plastizität bei der Figurengestaltung erlaubt. In vielen Fällen berücksichtigt der Meister sogar den Schattenwurf. das Licht kommt dabei stets von links. Mit großem zeichnerischen Geschick schwelgt der Meister des Einsiedler Heilsspiegels in der Draperie der Gewänder. Ihre graphische Wirkung erzielen die Miniaturen durch die mal feinere dann wieder stärkere Schraffur. Es scheint. als ob der Meister des Einsiedler Heilsspiegels versucht habe. den bildnerischen Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten des damals noch jungen Kupferstichs nachzueifern. Auch gekonnt eingesetzte Farbakzente verleihen den vier Bildern auf jeder Doppelseite zusätzliche Spannung. In den flandrischen und nordfranzösischen Städten unter der Herrschaft des Burgunderherzogs Philipps des Guten blühten die Künste der Buch- und Tafelmalerei wie nirgendwo sonst. In diesem produktiven Klima entstand um 1450/1460 der nach seinem heutigen Aufbewahrungsort benannte Heilsspiegel aus Kloster Einsiedeln. Die ungewöhnlich reich ausgestattete Handschrift wird mit einem Meister in Verbindung gebracht. der sowohl mit dem Werk des niederländischen Tafelmalers Rogier van der Weyden sehr gut vertraut war als auch mit den Stundenbüchern des Boucicaut-Meisters. eines der berühmtesten Meister der Pariser Buchmalerei. Es gibt Hinweise. dass der Meister des Einsiedler Heilsspiegels zeitweise in den Diensten von Dreux Budé stand. dem einflussreichen Notar und Sekretär der französischen Könige Karl VII. und Ludwig XI. und also für die höchsten Adelskreise arbeitete.

        The World Below the Brine

      East Hampton, NY 2015 - Unique artist's book, all on Richard de Bas cream wove paper, signed by the artist on the last page of the book, Barry McCallion / February 2015." Page size: 6-7/8 x 4-5/8 inches; [i-v] 24pp. + colophon. Bound: loose as issue, laid into salmon pink wrappers with handmade blue and pink paper over boards portfolio, laid into custom-made blue cloth over boards clamshell box with title printed in white on blue label, color reproduction of one of the full-page paintings in India and metallic inks and acrylics of the "Forests at the bottom of the sea ." The text of Whitman's splendid poem is hand-lettered by the artist in multi-colored inks in irregular letters, filling each verso, the rectos happily accommodating the polychrome images of Whitman's imagined "other" world with its own life forms and resulting manners and mores. We are brought full circle by the poet's close, "The change onward from ours to that of beings who walk other spheres" and by the artist's images of other celestial objects viewed from a corner of earth. Whitman's romantic free-verse musings on diversity in nature and what peace and beauty is found therein is wonderfully served by the art of Barry McCallion. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
