        The Story of the Fisherman., From the Arabian Nights, translated by Edward William Lane (1801-1876). Illustrated by Brian Bowes.

      Berkeley, 2015. - 8 5/16 x 9 7/8. Accordion-fold. (80) pages with 18 illustrations hand colored by pochoir. Housed in a cloth covered box with a neodymium magnet to hold the front flap. One of 117 signed copies designed, printed, and bound by Peggy Gotthold and Lawrence Van Velzer. They write "The teller of the stories flips inside the story, as a narrator nests another story inside the larger story. This idea let us play with the structure of the book, so that the images that also tell the story can be seen as a linear sequence independent of the actual text. By using different colors of ink for the line of the images, it makes clear which images go with what story, and also illustrates that the stories break off for a digression and then resume later for a continuation." The brilliant pochoirs have a lively flow. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Hand-colored dry point etchings, with added paste paper pennants hung on a line strung between pages. Each book and box bound in different color cloth. Signed by the artists. Rebecca Goodale: "This set of three books traveled between the artists' studios at Bowdoin College, Freeport, and Portland, Maine for printing, hand coloring and binding. The clamshell boxes were begun in Eaton, NH at the studio of Marnie Cobbs and finished in Freeport. "Goodale and Scanga worked together on the plates, often sitting close beside each other while making marks on the same plate. The narrative follows the three friends from 'Two or Three Friends' their previous book project."During the two years it took to conceive of and finish this project one artist became a mother and the other became motherless. The baby panda in the narrative is a new and necessary character, one that buoys the artists along to consider the future and the possibility of the next collaboration.

        twombly, italia

      Montreal, Canada:: Ewa Monika Zebrowski,, 2015.. Edition of 70 + 10 AP. 8 x 6"; 92 pages. Extends to 12.5" opening to two books: on the right a pamphlet sewn in, on the left an accordion extending from the spine. 21 images printed on Munken Print Cream 90g. 10 poems printed on Numken Print Cream 70g. Archival digital inkjet photographs. In paper sleeve. Numbered and initialed by the artist. Ewa Zebrowski: "This has been an incredible journey for me. Although I began with the intention of taking photographs, I started to write poetry. I was so moved by Cy Twombly's work that I wanted to have a conversation with him. He became my muse. Layer, upon layer, I began to discover his universe."twombly , italia is an artist's book that includes a sequence of 10 poems and 21 photographs, an invocation of the artist, Cy Twombly."The all white book unfolds to reveal two books, an accordion book of images, and a separate hand stitched pamphlet, a book of poems. The two work in harmony as a narrative. They can be considered separately or together. The images do not illustrate the poems, but the writing informs the images and vice versa. twombly, italia is a non-linear presentation about the ephemeral nature of being, and the desire and longing which inhabits us all, albeit unresolved."The poems address questions of time and absence, memory and remembrance, fleeting moments of recognition and passage. "The photographs, inspired by Cy Twombly's polaroids, are visual fragments. They echo his experience of Italy and mine. Images recall the landscape that fueled his life and his artistic production, and that inspired me. "Twombly lived in Italy for 50 years. Italy fueled his soul. Cy Twombly died in Rome in 2011. He left behind an epic legacy, an enormous body of work: paintings, sculptures, and lesser known polaroid photographs. A few years ago I came upon a book of his photographs. His photographs inspired this work.

        Choose Happy

      Kingston, Ontario:: Transformer Press,, 2015.. Edition of 10. 8 x 10.75"; 10 pages. Accordion structure. Pop-ups. Paper wraps with ribbon closure. Signed, numbered, and dated by the artist. Lise Melhorn-Boe: "Creating CHOOSE HAPPY was an intriguing diversion. I was asked to create a book using the Artist's Book Ideation Cards developed by Barbara Tetenbaum and Julie Chen. One chooses one of each of the category cards, plus five adjectives, and then creates a work of art that fits the criteria. One can ignore two of the adjectives, and change one of the other cards, if desired. The cards I drew were Found TEXT, Muted or pastel COLOURS, LAYOUT across the folds, Self-generated IMAGE, Multiple colours of PAPER, TECHNIQUE of my choice, Accordion STRUCTURE. The five adjective cards were Elegant or harmonious, Textured, Scientific or research-based, Opposing or contrasting, and Loud. "Just the day before I drew the cards, I had seen, in Toronto, two billboards for Koodo Mobile. They spelled (in balloons) CHOOSE HAPPY. I searched for more found text in a variety of magazines. I then tried typing CHOOSE HAPPY in the search box of the public library's catalogue, and came up with How We Choose to Be Happy: The 9 Choices of Extremely Happy People-Their Secrets, Their Stories by Rick Foster and Greg Hicks. Searching for that on the shelves led me to HAPPY AT LAST: The Thinking Person's Guide to Finding Joy by Richard O'Connor, M.S.W., Ph.D and reading that led me to 14,000 things to be happy about by Barbara Kipfer. I have used text from all of these in 'CHOOSE HAPPY'. "HAPPY AT LAST was the most interesting to me. O'Connor references recent research on brain plasticity (a topic I have explored as I have a son who has had a brain injury) and posits that, just as the brain of stroke victims and people with brain injuries can be reprogrammed and create new neural connections, so too can anyone reprogram his or her own brain to be happier. O'Connor's text became the linchpin upon which the rest of the random texts could hang. "Since I had to make an accordion, and work across the folds, I decided to make a pop-up book. (Also because pop-ups make people happy.) I decided to make the text blocks become the pops and these sculptural pop-ups themselves became the 'self-generated images'.

        Departure

      Pasadena, MD, 2015. Unique artist's book, on Arches Text Wove paper, signed by the author / artist, Elizabeth McKee in pencil on the colophon page. Page size: 11-7/8 x 13-3/4 inches; 12pp. Bound by the artist: brown cloth spine with red cloth over boards painted with white "glyphs" on front cover, housed in red cloth clamshell box with white runes on top front half as if part of larger circular motif - the Phaistos Disc, a Minoan artifact, actually a holy relic of the mother goddess, from 1700 BC. Painted in jeweled and earth tones in pastels made permanent with the application of SpectraFix, with the addition of acrylic ink and paint, Ms. McKee has created her own translation of the glyphs of the Phaistos Disc. Ms. McKee started this book in 2008, finishing it in 2015. When she started DEPARTURE, there seemed little chance of the Phaistos disk being translated. However, in 2014, Dr. Gareth Owens announced that he and John Coleman had "cracked" the Minoan disk. Owens concludes that the disc may contain a prayer to a Minoan goddess. The earth tone-painted pages of the book are Ms. McKee's own imaginary interpretation of the Phaistos Disc characters - but her story is as much a prayer to a female deity as the Owens' translation. She has created pages that are irregularly shaped with fold-over edges, attached folders, as well as unfolds at bottom; however, all the fold-overs work together to create a unified page design. It is as if the reader / viewer were excavating while reading - exposing multi-layers of images - reflecting the actual discovery of the Phaistos disc in 1903 on the island of Crete. This book evolved from random marks made on a full sheet of paper made by five women meeting together one day to work on their art. Ms. McKee took the remains of some of their prints and a dragonfly stamped image and created her own world of swirling circles and fleeing female figures from this maze. Reflecting traditional Minoan images and myths, this book is very much a contemporary feminist statement. McKee's images of a small female figure in white outlines against increasingly dark jewel-colored pages insist the reader / viewer accompany the female figure on this journey through a labyrinth opening to freedom.

        The Opossum: A Specimen Book

      Philadelphia, Pennsylvania:: Shandy Press,, 2015.. Edition of 25. 6 x 8"; 62 pages. Letterpress printed, using polymer plates, on a Vandercook Proofing Press. Typeface is Hoefler. Text paper is Schiller. Paper for prints is Zerkall. Tip-ins. Bound in unbleached abaca handmade by Nicole Donnelly. Signed and numbered by the artist. Susan Viguers: "The Opossum is a specimen book in various ways. Most obviously, it is about a particular animal, the Virginia opossum. Conceived in the tradition of the type specimen book, it is a compendium of voices/observations about the opossum. The preface to the book consists of a statement by John D. Godman in 1831: 'Perhaps nothing can more clearly demonstrate the impatience of the human mind, and the reluctance with which men yield to the hard necessity of carefully observing the operations of nature, than the history of this animal.' The primary text, my own story of encounters with the opossum, is surrounded by passages from commentators from the 17th century to the present. I am interested in the fantastical as much as the actual. "The book is also an exploration into the history of illustrations of the opossum, as well as a collection of printmaking (and art making) processes in service of illustrating the opossum. Original prints representing various media by nine artists are tipped in as are reproductions of various images, primarily engravings from 18th and 19th century books. Credits, media, and discussion relating to the prints are included with thumbnails toward the end of the book. "Finally, it is a sampling of historical features of the book: the 18th and 19th century exuberant title page, the use of the golden section for page design, the tradition of commentary text surrounding a primary text, and the limp-vellum type binding.

Each copy is signed and numbered by the artist. 256 pages; 11 1/4" by 8 1/2"; 46 illustrations by Quentin Blake; limited to 1,000 copies; set in Poliphilus and Bembo; printed on Old Mill Stucco; bound in Indian goatskin blocked in gold foil; gilded top edge; gold-blocked slipcase.From publisher: "The Golden Ass tells the tale of a certain Lucius, a young man who ?" rather like his creator ?" leads an itinerant life full of action and incident which ultimately lands him in trouble. His curiosity to discover the secrets of witchcraft (the biographical echoes continue) results in his metamorphosis into an ass. The novel then follows its unfortunate hero through a series of largely bruising, humiliating and hilarious exploits until he is restored to human form through the intervention of the goddess Isis. This meandering plot is punctuated with a number of inserted stories which establish close thematic parallels with the main narrative. The most substantial and best known of these is the tale of Cupid and Psyche, in which Psyche's disastrous inquisitiveness, subsequent sufferings and eventual salvation echo Lucius' story. In the novel's final double twist, Lucius' adventures are reinterpreted in a religious and providential light, while the identity of the narrator apparently switches from Lucius to Apuleius himself ?" the novel's final transformation.The Golden Ass is the only Latin novel to survive in its entirety. Episodic in construction, it takes larger-than-life characters on extraordinary adventures at breakneck speed, prefiguring the picaresque worlds of Fielding's Tom Jones, Defoe's Moll Flanders and Prévost's Manon Lescaut. Or, before them, Cervantes and the first modern novel, Don Quixote.It is hard to imagine an artist better suited to the frenetic pace of Apuleius' narrative and its exquisite blend of wit, cruelty and humaneness than Quentin Blake. In his illustrations for this edition he captures the exuberant quality of the text while conveying all its variety and complexity of tone. His sequence of images depicting Lucius' transformation into the ass ?" as the hapless hero moves from hopeful anticipation to panic and horror ?" is uproariously funny. The central story-within-the-story of Cupid and Psyche is the subject of ten illustrations of extraordinary range, shifting between violence, eroticism and gentle humour. And in a supremely witty twist worthy of Apuleius himself, Quentin Blake has a sceptical reader turning in incredulity from the book to a slightly discomfited ass peering over his shoulder. Where in the recent limited edition of Voltaire's Candide Quentin Blake demonstrated his sharp satirical eye, and in Fifty Fables of La Fontaine displayed effortlessly expressive powers of characterisation, The Golden Ass shows off his full comic range, as he shifts mesmerizingly through the book's vagaries of mood and content.James Wood is Professor of the Practice of Literary Criticism at Harvard University and a staff writer at The New Yorker magazine. He has been described by Martin Amis as 'a marvellous critic, one of the few remaining'. His specially commissioned introduction for this limited edition of The Golden Ass offers a subtle and searching analysis of Apuleius' comic power and makes a compelling case for the work's enduring impact and relevance."

        Reading Emerson's 'Circles'

      Portland, Oregon:: Triangular Press,, 2015.. Edition of 30. 16 x 20"; 24 pages. Hand-written texts pressure-printed onto tissue paper. Laser-printed texts printed onto UV-Ultra. Covers: printed Zerkall paper dry-mounted between batiste. Bound with wooden spine and bulldog clips. Wrapper constructed of book cloth and book board. Signed and numbered on the colophon by the artist. Barbara Tetenbaum: "During a 2-week residency at Caldera, near Sisters, Oregon, I rewrote Ralph Waldo Emerson's essay 'Circles' using a special pen that leaves a hard raised mark if you go slowly enough. I wrote out 23 pages which took nearly 30 hours. I did this to accomplish three things: to force myself to read Emerson's essay very slowly; to record distractions and thoughts that I had while reading his words; to create a surface that I would later use to print an edition of artist books using a technique I developed and call 'Pressure Printing.' Pressure printing uses a low relief plate (my Emerson writings) which is put underneath the paper to be printed (tissue paper) and then run through the letterpress over a type-high inked block. This allows the low relief image to grab more or less ink from the block as it rolls over it. I have now printed an edition of 30 copies of all the pages I wrote out. My thoughts and distractions will be laser printed on transparent paper and interleaved within the book to show that reading is rarely a linear experience, but much fuller experience unique to the reader.
