Benjamin Rinehart: "Team Ramey explores the dynamics and ramifications of having a baby through surrogacy. It began as an innocent conversation with a friend. Despite having had a child before through adoption, we weren't prepared for the myriad of new issues in regards to conception, doctor's visits, the birth, legal challenges, and navigating an extended family. The playful pop-up construction methods serve as a device to lure the audience into more complex adult issues. "Many thanks to our amazing friend and surrogate Angela for helping us expand our family. I dedicate this book to my Ramalicious, Ramey Astor.

        Intermezzi. Nine Mezzotints by Judith Rothchild

      Verdigris Press, Octon, France 2015 - Artist's book, consisting of a suite of 9 mezzotints by Judith Rothchild, all on Hahnemulhe paper, signed and numbered in the colophon by the artist, one of 20 in this loose format. Page size: 14 1/8 x 10 3/8 inches; 9 original mezzotints plus half-title and titlepage, definition in French of Intermezzo / intermizzi and colophon. Bound: loose as issued, housed in custom-made clamshell box by Mark Lintott, silver, pale pink and yellow Venetian paper by Massimo Doretto over front board, black cloth over back board, label printed on white paper label on front panel, black cloth spine. There is also another edition of these mezzotints, trimmed and bound leporello style, although the mezzotints themselves are the same size in both editions. Printed by Mark Lintott. The text - a definition of the word intermezzo - taken from the Italian, refers to a piece of music, instrumental or vocal, sometimes augmented by dance, inserted into a dramatic work. More recently, the term refers to a composition that is often inserted into two parts of a more considerable work. The nine still-life prints are just that: small but perfectly realized glimpses of things that glisten between the whole image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      München : Sieveking, 2015 - 157 S. Christoph Brech profitiert von einem Privileg, wie es so schnell keinem Zweiten zuteilwerden wird. Drei Jahre lang konnte er unbehelligt von den endlosen Besucherströmen die Säle und Galerien der Vatikanischen Museen bei Tag und bei Nacht fotografieren. Auf seinen Streifzügen durch die zahllosen Ausstellungsräume und die Sixtinische Kapelle hielt er Eindrücke von außerordentlicher Ruhe fest. Seine Blicke zeigen eines der bekanntesten Museen der Welt, wie es sonst niemand zu Gesicht bekommt: menschenleere Raumfluchten, würdevoll präsentierte Kunstwerke, aber auch versteckte Winkel. Der hochwertige Bildband stellt Brechs Fotografien historische Aufnahmen aus den Archiven des Vatikans an die Seite. ISBN 9783944874166 Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1530 Mit zahlr. farb. Abb.

        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.

Ihr bis zum Juli 2015 einziges veröffentlichtes Buch "Wer die Nachtigall stört" (Originaltitel: To Kill a Mockingbird) verkaufte sich über 40 Millionen Mal. Sensationeller Manuskriptfund - das literarische Ereignis im Sommer 2015. Harper Lee hat bisher nur einen Roman veröffentlicht, doch dieser hat der US-amerikanischen Schriftstellerin Weltruhm eingebracht. "Wer die Nachtigall stört", erschienen 1960 und ein Jahr später mit dem renommierten Pulitzer-Preis ausgezeichnet, ist mit 40 Millionen verkauften Exemplaren und Übersetzungen in mehr als 40 Sprachen eines der meistgelesenen Bücher weltweit. Mit "Gehe hin, stelle einen Wächter" - zeitlich vor "Wer die Nachtigall stört" entstanden - erscheint nun das Erstlingswerk.
