        Interluceo

      Red Cliff, Colorado:: Helen Hiebert Studio,, 2015.. Edition of 25. 9 3/16 x 9 3/16"; 72 pages including colophon and endsheets. Handmade papers by Helen Hiebert. Illustrated with 7 hand-cut paper illustrations. Printed letterpress in Dante by Tom Leech, Palace of the Governors Press, Santa Fe, New Mexico from polymer plates made by Boxcar Press. Bound by Claudia Cohen with hand-sewn exposed spine and grey paper wrappers printed with title and geometric shapes in darker grey on front panel. Housed in custom-made box of plum silk over boards with title printed blind on grey paper laid onto spine. Signed by the designer / papermaker, Helen Hiebert and dated on the title page. Propectus: "Illustrated with 7 hand-cut paper illustrations (translucent abaca paper in hues of rainbow) portray the mysteries of life: a baby in the womb, a couple, a child, a child gaining strength and running to embrace life, the building of a home (the pentagonal shape), exploring the world and, finally, spiritual contemplation. The seven white handmade papers feature seven intricate geometric watermarks which relate to the numbers one through seven and their corresponding shapes: point, line, triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon, septagon. While the numbers 1-7 have many meanings - days of the week, notes in musical scale, colors of rainbow - the 7 geometric shapes here progress from a point (the circle) to a seven-sided form. If this sequence were to continue ad infinitum, the resulting multi-sided figure with an infinite number of sides would approach the shape of a circle again (either the beginning or the end). "Helen Hiebert, has contributed a page of 'Reflections' which is an artist's statement in which she discusses this book. Interluceo is defined as to shine or gleam between, to be transparent, to light or light through gaps. The luminosity of abaca (banana plant fiber) is cited as an inspiration to create the colored papers of INTERLUCEO. Ms. Hiebert discusses watermarks - noting that hers are created not from wire in the papermaking mould but rather a thin rubber material. They are beautiful and the perfect subtle foil to the obvious brilliance of the cut-outs. … Looking at the edges of the book reveals the rainbow inside and urges the reader / viewer to enter into the mystery of light and color. ..."Helen Hiebert, Colophon: "This book derives from my eternal interest in geometry and light. The watermarking technique gave me the method for melding these fascinations, and the book form provides the structure for expanding on these ideas. I made a seventy-five percent cotton / twenty-five percent abaca blend paper to showcase the watermarks and pigmented the abaca pulp to create the rainbow spectrum of translucent papers. The illustrations by Beatrice Coron allow for the introduction of light, shadow, and mirror images.

        THE BURIED GIANT: THE DELUXE SLIPCASED EDITION

      London, England: Faber & Faber, 2015. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. London, England: Faber & Faber, 2015. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 345 pages. The author's seventh novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. Deluxe Slipcased Edition of 200 numbered and signed copies. An additional five copies were produced for Kazuo Ishiguro to keep for himself. Should not be confused with all other editions, including the Waterstone's Special Edition, the First Hardcover Edition itself, which is British, and the American Edition, particularly copies that are signed on a tipped-in page in the case of the latter. As one has come to expect of British publishing, this is a magnificent production by Faber & Faber: Regular-sized volume format. Maroon boards with large round die-cut on the cover and gilt titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Text by Kazuo Ishiguro. Facsimile of two pages of the manuscript laid "en face" into their own matching maroon folder-portfolio with a gilt tree design on the cover. Green cloth slipcase with a gilt tree design. The endpapers depict a landscape painting. Printed on archival stock paper in the United Kingdom to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in the ultimate Deluxe Edition format, and after a ten-year hiatus, Kazuo Ishiguro's "The Buried Giant". This marks only the second Deluxe Edition of Ishiguro's work, the first being "Early Japanese Stories", which came with an original print by its artist/collaborator, published by a small fine press fifteen years ago, in 2000. "Completely astonishing. I can't think of another writer who keeps finding such new and radically unexpected ways of exploring - and deepening - his lifelong concerns. Which is a way of saying that I can't think of another writer who is so unswervingly serious as well as impeccable, stripping away every distraction to get to the core of things, as a Beckett might, and attaining in the end an almost unbearable intensity of emotional directness" (Pico Iyer). "The weirdest, riskiest, and most ambitious thing he has published in his celebrated 33-year career" (Alexandra Alter). "An original and remarkable genius" (The New York Times). An absolute "must-have" edition for Kazuo Ishiguro collectors. This copy is one of the Deluxe Slipcased Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Front Limitation Page. It is very prominently and beautifully signed in black fountain pen by Kazuo Ishiguro. It comes with a stunningly beautiful folder-portfolio of two facsimile pages of the manuscript, both of them very prominently and beautifully signed in black fountain pen on recto by the author. A scarce pristine copy of the First American Edition/First Printing, also very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page (not on a tipped-in page) by Ishiguro, is included for good measure. This title will become a contemporary classic. This is one of very few copies of the Deluxe Slipcased Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed set thus. Winner of the Whitbread Prize in 1986 for "An Artist of The Floating World". Winner of the Booker Prize in 1989 for "The Remains of The Day". One of the greatest living writers. A flawless collectible set. (SEE ALSO OTHER KAZUO ISHIGURO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

        In Memoriam

      Martinez, California:: Lucy Childs,, 2015.. Series variant. 4 x 5.5"; 8 panels. Cloth accordion. Hand Sewn. Materials: silk, polyester, cotton thread. Bound in cloth over boards. Hand- stitched titles and decoration. Signed by the artist. Lucy Childs: " In Memoriam is a series where the books are the same basic size and shape, all with a stitched verse on linen and with wool covered bindings with the sewn title, In Memoriam. Each book in this series is unique. "When I make a book, I begin to sew with an idea in mind, but I do not draw the design onto the cloth and I do not reproduce a design. It's 'free-hand' method which might (and usually does) require pulling out and redoing till I get each panel the way I think it looks best. … "This method makes it more like drawing, and my background is in fine arts. … "The In Memoriam series uses several different poems by different writers, and all have the theme of acknowledging and honoring the death of someone well-loved. They are meant to be carried with you to keep a connection with the deceased person (or pet). Colophon: "The 'In Memoriam' books are meant to be carried with you, to look at and remember someone (or a pet) who has died. The sewn cross shape suggests a graveyard cross, possibly one from the corner of an old and forgotten cemetery. This series uses the first verse of Maxwell Bodenheim's poem, 'To One Dead,' written in 1918, which is sewn along and around the panels of the accordions. The poem's poignant but celebratory flavor is reflected in the colors and letterforms used to sew the words. "Creating these books came from exploring the history, craft, and culture of early American and British sewing samplers, made mostly by young girls to learn the practical craft of sewing but also to learn letters and spelling. That elements of reading and writing were taught through sewing samplers appealed to me because of my career as a school teacher. Many old and antique samplers included text or images in memory of family members who had died.

My pages often make use of formatting proportions inspired by medieval manuscripts, but content is otherwise unplanned and completed spontaneously outdoors. Back in the studio, I bind these pages into each IN FORESTS volume, where traces of fieldwork remain: paint spatters, stains, debris, and other forest marks.

        A.Musings

      Vashon Island, WA 2015 - Artist's book, one of 26 copies, all on Rives BFK paper and Revere papers, lettered A to Z, signed and dated by the artist, on the colophon. Page size: 9 x 15 inches; 20pp. + colophon. Bound by the artist: painted maize colored Magnani Paper, with the letter "A" tooled in silver and gold gilt on front panel, rather abstract as if assemblage of bamboo, paper portfolio to house book. Titlepage extends across two pages and features a large script A, debossed followed by a smaller, printed MUSINGS (Bodoni Outline) separated by gold-gilt dot. Designed, hand-lettered and painted and collaged, printed monotype, debossed and hand-cut by the artist with hand-set type composition and letterpress printing by Jessica Spring at Springtide Press. Each page is an original composition capable of standing on its own. Yet, there is a narrative clearly evident in A.MUSINGS, and the reader / viewer is compelled to turn the page to find new images of the first letter. The beginning of the written word is no small subject; Ms. Moore has explored it in a previous unique book and here again rises to the challenge. With great subtlety and her usual sureness of technique, she explores historic forms of the letter, visually and textually. For any lover of language and art, A MUSINGS speaks directly and will resonate long after the pages are closed. The shaped printed page in Optima, which contains the artist's own definitions of the letter "A", is beautifully constructed and printed by Jessica Spring. The backdrop for this translucent page is a drawing, alluding to the geometric roots of classical Roman letterforms. The ending words, "Tops. First. Crème de la crème. Aleph" certainly apply to this book - as well as the letter A. A.MUSINGS final page is on a black painted ground with a plethora of vividly colored letter forms, all of the letter A. These A-forms (all but one of African origin), jostling up against one another, create a page of intense visual energy. This is in direct contrast to the previous pages of A's on white grounds, in black, highlighted with multi-color designs and gold gilt which are concrete and placid - suiting perfectly as these are representative of the Greek letter forms based on geometric shapes. A truly beautiful ode to the "vanguard" of letter forms. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Pamphlet: 6 x 9.5", 12 pages; 24 x 10.25" foldout; letterpress printed; pamphlet stitch bound in paper wrappers; numbered. Parachutes: two 5.25 x 4.75" folded; pocket enclosure (one blue with white design, one white with blue design). In an edition of 75 with 55 regular and 20 deluxe.Deluxe edition in 6.4 x 10" cloth covered box with three dimensional cloud and water images added to lid exterior The parachutes are metaphors for the transformative process of reading. Cover anything with the blue parachute and turn it into a lake, or use the white parachute to make it a cloud. A sort of book artist's version of Eliot's objective correlative? Prospectus: "Lake + Cloud explores the expansive experience of reading by transforming the reader's physical space into a landscape containing a lake and a cloud." Small Craft Advisory Press: "Lake + Cloud is a collaborative artists' book project between Katie Baldwin and Denise Bookwalter. In contrast to other projects underway at SCAP, the artists worked together for a month at Vermont Studio Center during a residency to plan their collaborative work. While they were planning Lake & Cloud they also worked on parallel series of individual works that investigated the original idea of Lake & Cloud. This artist book uses a pair of parachutes and an operation manual to transform space. In manipulating the object, the viewer is engaged in the process of 'reading' the book. The project illustrates the poetic and organic collaborative process from inception to object." Katie Baldwin teaches book arts and printmaking at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. She was at Wells College from 2011 - 2013 as the Victor Hammer Fellow. She is a graduate of The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Denise Bookwalter is the Director of the Small Craft Advisory Press at Florida State University in Tallahassee. She is an assistant professor art and head of printmaking for FSU. She has an MFA in printmaking from Indiana University, Bloomington, IN, an MA in art education from the University of Illinois, Bloomington, IN, and a BA in geological sciences and art theory and practice from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL.

        Zane Grey & Me

      Richmond, California:: Littoral Press,, 2015.. Edition of 47. 11 x 8.5"; 32 pages including free end pages. Printed on dampened St. Armand paper. Grey's text set in Farmers Old Style, via monotype composition from M & H Type. Rappoport's text handset Centaur. Lariat titling font. Frontispiece illustration by Andrew Larkin. Top edges of pages cut into canyon and butte outlines. Bound in leather wraparound with exposed longstitch. Silver button and leather tie closure. Signed and numbered by Lisa Rappoport. Lisa Rappoport: "This book grew out of my childhood in New Jersey and my years working with horses in Europe and New Mexico. The underlying question is, how does reading romanticized versions of the American West affect an impressionable horse lover? The colors and sculpted shapes of the pages, along with the horizontal layout, evoke the landscape of the Southwest. The leather binding, with its silver concho closure and leather lacing, brings to mind journals kept by pioneers. The two columns of text on each page, one from Zane Grey's novel and one from the author's life, create a tension between fiction and reality, past and present. "Zane Grey and Me juxtaposes excerpts from the 1917 novel, Wildfire, with autobiographical responses, obliquely addressing the role of both romance and romance novels in modern life. Profusely illustrated with vintage dingbats, as well as a frontispiece drawing by Andrew Larkin and an anatomical heart drawn by Bobbe Besold."

        Lac Des Pleurs Las

      Stockholm, Wisconsin:: Midnight Paper Sales,, 2015.. Edition of 100. 10 x 15"; 76 pages. Set in metal type and printed by hand on vintage Barcham Greene and Wookey Hole papers. Images printed on Zerkall paper. Bound and boxed at Booklab II with cover paper marbled for the edition by Jemma Lewis Midnight Paper Sales: " The text-commentary on passage through the lake by Louis Hennepin, George Featherstonhaugh, Henry Schoolcraft, Geroge Catlin, Jonathan Carver, Zebulon Montgomery Pike, Charles Latrobe, Henry David Thoreau, and Oliver Gibbs Jr., with related excerpts from Harriet Bell Carlander, George Wagner, Robert E. Coker, C. A. Lesueur, Thaddeus Surber, Paul Harder, and Mark Twain; an introduction by Patrick K. Coleman; and image captions & an epilogue by Gaylord Schanilec-has been hand set in metal type, and printed by hand on vintage Barcham Greene and Wookey Hole papers. "The images-specimen prints engraved by Gaylord Schanilec including the American White Pelican, Shorthead Redhorse, White Bass, Sheepshead, Lake Pepin Mucket, Threehorn Wartyback, and Giant Floater, along with two vignettes-were all printed on Zerkall paper. Plus a foldout map of the lake, engraved by Mr. Schanilec, was printed on handmade kozo paper, and thirty 'text figures' of fish were printed from the original electrotypes used in the 1920 publication Fishes and Fish-Like Vertebrates of Minnesota, by Thaddeus Surber. Michael Hoinski, "Grain by Wood Grain, a Movable Feast", The New York Times, Art & Design : "Lac Des Pleurs [is] Mr. Schanilec's ode to Lake Pepin, near his home in Stockholm, Wis., population 69 … The book took more than seven years to make. "The project began when Mr. Schanilec, a self-taught wood engraver and fine printer who seamlessly uses traditional techniques to modern ends, acquired a Lund fishing boat and retrofitted it with a drawing table and library so that he could create while pondering the lake. 'I'm really into just going someplace I know nothing about, or into a subject I know nothing about, and just kind of letting it take me wherever,' Mr. Schanilec, 59, said. "Lac Des Pleurs is a much-anticipated fine press book, an age-old genre enjoying a golden period. These small-batch, highly collectible works are typically made with movable type on a printing press with production methods dating back to Johannes Gutenberg, who invented letterpress printing in the 1440s. Mr. Schanilec, an obsessive naturalist who likes salty language, is a master of this domain. "Mr. Schanilec' s latest, the 76-page Lac Des Pleurs, features his intricate and time-intensive engravings of the lake and its wildlife, accompanied by his original verse and the notes of European explorers of the area. Those start with Louis Hennepin, who christened it Lac des Pleurs, or Lake of Tears, because the Native Americans cried when their chief would not allow them to kill Hennepin and his colleagues. It also includes words by Mark Twain, who traveled there as a steamboat pilot in the 1850s, and Henry David Thoreau, who visited shortly before his death in 1862. "Mr. Schanilec printed the book on antique English paper using his Vandercook letterpress, which he cranks with his arm and a rickety hip. … The book also opens with an exquisitely detailed, multicolored 2-by-3-foot map of Lake Pepin on handmade Moriki kozo paper that can be unfolded and laid flat. Based on a pocket-fishing map and United States Geological Survey materials, it took more than 500 hours just to carve into wood. Mr. Schanilec suggests that the map is the largest multiple-color wood engraving ever printed, and Mr. Dimunation of the Library of Congress said it was the largest one he could recall from recent years." Gaylord Schanilec: "The River is a study of the 22-mile length of the upper Mississippi River known as Lake Pepin, or Pool Number 4 by the Army Corps of Engineers. This widest naturally occurring part of the river was dubbed the 'Lake of Tears' by Louis Hennepin in 1680, inspired by the tears of Indian men whose desire to kill the Frenchman was frustrated by their chief. The lake is home to a broad diversity of life, including, I have read, nearly 80 species of catchable fish. … This river, it seems to me, is the ultimate territory. I view myself as something of a modern day natural philosopher swimming in the wake of Darwin, or Thoreau. Of course there are no new species to be discovered, and I am no Henry David Thoreau, but for me this place, at this time, is as interesting as can be.

        A.Musings

      Vashon Island, WA. 2015. Artist's book, one of 26 copies, all on Rives BFK paper and Revere papers, lettered A to Z, signed and dated by the artist, on the colophon. Page size: 9 x 15 inches; 20pp. + colophon. Bound by the artist: painted maize colored Magnani Paper, with the letter "A" tooled in silver and gold gilt on front panel, rather abstract as if assemblage of bamboo, paper portfolio to house book. Titlepage extends across two pages and features a large script A, debossed followed by a smaller, printed MUSINGS (Bodoni Outline) separated by gold-gilt dot. Designed, hand-lettered and painted and collaged, printed monotype, debossed and hand-cut by the artist with hand-set type composition and letterpress printing by Jessica Spring at Springtide Press. Each page is an original composition capable of standing on its own. Yet, there is a narrative clearly evident in A.MUSINGS, and the reader / viewer is compelled to turn the page to find new images of the first letter. The beginning of the written word is no small subject; Ms. Moore has explored it in a previous unique book and here again rises to the challenge. With great subtlety and her usual sureness of technique, she explores historic forms of the letter, visually and textually. For any lover of language and art, A MUSINGS speaks directly and will resonate long after the pages are closed. The shaped printed page in Optima, which contains the artist's own definitions of the letter "A", is beautifully constructed and printed by Jessica Spring. The backdrop for this translucent page is a drawing, alluding to the geometric roots of classical Roman letterforms. The ending words, "Tops. First. Crème de la crème. Aleph" certainly apply to this book - as well as the letter A. A.MUSINGS final page is on a black painted ground with a plethora of vividly colored letter forms, all of the letter A. These A-forms (all but one of African origin), jostling up against one another, create a page of intense visual energy. This is in direct contrast to the previous pages of A's on white grounds, in black, highlighted with multi-color designs and gold gilt which are concrete and placid - suiting perfectly as these are representative of the Greek letter forms based on geometric shapes. A truly beautiful ode to the "vanguard" of letter forms. See an Image.
