      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.

        THE NORTH COUNTRY FLY: YORKSHIRE'S SOFT HACKLE TRADITION. By Robert L. Smith. Two volume de luxe leather-bound edition.

      Coch-y-Bonddu Books Ltd. Machynlleth, Powys. - 2015 1st edition. Two volumes together in slipcase. 4to. Ppx,302. Colour and b/w photographs, line drawings. Full dark blue Nigerian goatskin. Slipcase. Mint new copy in slipcase. Edition limited to 25 signed and numbered copies. The author's research has brought to light many rare documents, providing evidence for a tradition of imitative fly dressing, particularly in Yorkshire's Wharfedale, going back over 300 years. He has had access to several rare and early fly lists and his book includes the full texts of several previously unpublished manuscripts - from William Lister's fishing diary 1712-1724 to a number of fly-lists of nineteenth century beck-watchers. Additionally he provides much new information on previously published sources such as Walbran, Pritt and Edmonds & Lee, as well as up-to-date information on tying and fishing soft-hackle flies. Beautifully illustrated with examples of actual flies and materials, and with images from the original manuscripts, this book tells the definitive story of the North Country fly. DE LUXE EDITION. This is a copy of the two volume de luxe edition, each finely bound in full dark blue Nigerian goatskin leather. Volume One is the text of The North Country Fly and is signed and numbered by the author. Volume Two contains two panels each containing ten specimens of North Country flies dressed for this edition by the author. This selection of traditional patterns is taken from a wide variety of North Country rivers and streams, and the flies have been tied from the original dressings and utilising authentic North Country hackles and vintage silks. In order to best remain faithful to the profile of the original patterns, the flies have been dressed on straight-eyed, light-wire Daiichi dry-fly hooks. The two leather-bound volumes are housed together in a handsome matching blue slipcase lined with wine-red felt. This de luxe edition is limited to only 25 signed and numbered two-volume sets for sale and we now have very few left. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        A Pocket List

      El Cerrito, California:: Red Parrot Press,, 2015.. Edition of 5 . 11 x 15"; 30 pages. Accordion extending from back pastedown. Digital printing plus linocuts and colored pencil. Incorporates images from 10th- and 11th-century Spanish illuminated manuscript version of the commentary on the apocalypse by Saint Beatus of Liebana. In slipcase. Signed and numbered on the colophon by the artist. This dire prediction is purportedly from the next millennium. Will it take that long? Barbara Milman: "This is a pun - say A Pocket List out loud & it sounds like - Apocalypse! "The title page says it is published by Revelation Press - this is a hint that the book is not factual - there is no such press, it is invented for this book only. It says it is published by Alert University in Alert, Nunavet, Canada. Alert is a real place, it is the northernmost permanently inhabited place in the world (this is explained on the colophon page). It is actually a small weather research center, with a miniscule population. Certainly no highways with addresses up to 29873. And, of course, no university where I could be a professor of ancient art and archeology. The date of my little introduction to the book is also a hint - November 2, 3491.

        The Story of the Fisherman

      Santa Cruz, California:: Foolscap Press,, 2015.. Edition of 117. 9.875 x 8.3"; 80 pages. 18 illustrations including the illustrated title page. Printed on Lettra from Crane & Co. and set in Legend, a type designed in 1937 by L.H. Schneidler. Pochoir. Hand bound at the press. Laid in four flap cloth covered portfolio with magnet closure. Signed by the artist Brian Bowes. The Story of the Fisherman is taken from the Arabian Nights and is translated by Edward William Lane (1801-1876).Foolscap Press: "The Story of the Fisherman is part of a much larger collection of folklore and literature popularly known as the Arabian Nights or The One Thousand and One Nights. The stories originated from ancient Persian, Indian, Egyptian and Mesopotamian sources collected over hundreds of years during the Islamic Golden Age, that is, from the eighth to the thirteenth centuries. These stories reflect the enormous, highly civilized Islamic world that existed at the time. And it was a time when a traveler could wander through an extensive portion of the known world speaking Arabic, studying and praying in mosques, and being a stranger yet sharing a familiar culture. "There is a frame story common to all the editions of the Arabian Nights that involve the ruler of the Persian Empire, King Shahrayar, and his bride Shahrazad. The core scene is the bedchamber of King Shahrayar. His new bride for the night is Shahrazad, daughter to the king's own vizier. She is one more virgin destined to die at sunrise after spending just a single night in the king's bed. The king has sworn to work his way through all the virgins of his kingdom, putting each to death the following morning because his former queen (and therefore all women, in his view) was without virtue. So he decreed that the young women in the kingdom would pay the ultimate penalty for their queen's transgressions."The Arabian Nights is a collection of stories told against death. Starting with the frame story of Shahrazad and King Shahrayar, the stories unfold, stories within stories, many of them with the intention of prolonging the life of the one telling the story. This present book, titled The Story of the Fisherman, is typical of the Arabian Nights stories in that it is a series of stories tucked within the opening story."For this edition, illustrator Brian Bowes has transformed Shadrazad's narration into a panorama of imposing images setting before the reader a visual extravagance of place and time and character. Mr. Bowes is the former Illustrator Coordinator for San Francisco North & East Bay Region of the Society of Children's Book Writer's and Illustrators (SCBWI). He is an illustrator, graphic designer and art instructor. Once printed, the illustrations are hand colored in a French method called pochoir where paint is applied with a brush through cut-out stencils. "This edition of The Story of the Fisherman has evolved both as a story of words and, at the same time, a story told in graphic art form. Due to the accordion nature of the binding, the book can be opened to display the story in images and the reader will discover visual connections between the linked illustrations."The illustration on the front and back covers is based on an illuminated page from a Koran made for Sultan Uljaytu Hamadan in 1313 by Abdallah ibn Muhammad al-Hamadani.

        Esoteric Time. 'T Was later when the summer went.

      Fort Lauderdale, FL 2015 - Artist's book, unique, a vintage (19th century New England) wood steeple clock, with glass door showing inner works of clock and original metal pendulum, with facsimile of Emily Dickinson's poem, 'T was later when the summer went" on the front and back panels of the clock, along with colophon - artist's statement, signed by Dorothy Simpson Krause and dated 2015. Size of clock: 20 x 11 x 4.5 inches. With print of cricket on transparent film on pendulum, over a map of Amherst in the early 1800's showing Dickinson's home. On the top glass panel is a print on transparent film of the only known authenticated photograph of Emily Dickinson from the Amherst College Archives & Special Collections, together with the text of 'T Was black type running to clear when it is superimposed on the poet's black dress, facsimile signature of the poet below. The artist's statement is printed on toned paper affixed to the back of the steeple clock, in the shape of the steeple clock. The artist notes that this poem, written on the back of an envelope, celebrates nature's clock with the song of the cricket announcing the summer and its cessation heralding its end. Ms. Krause notes that crickets, a symbol of good fortune, were often kept in cages so their songs could be enjoyed. The artist further notes that the poet might have considered this fate related to the subjugation of women in her time. An unusual visual interpretation of one of Emily Dickinson's poems, this is conceptually perfect catching the simple words with all attendant complications. This is a handsome book / book object.'T was later when the summer wentThan when the cricket came,And yet we knew that gentle clockMeant nought but going home.'T was sooner when the cricket wentThan when the winter came,Yet that pathetic pendulumKeeps esoteric time.

        Etui - Portable Necessities.

      [Boston 2015 - Artist's book, one of 10 copies, all on Frankfurt paper each copy signed and numbered by the artist on the back panel, "Laura Davidson, # of 10, 2015". Page size: 1.5 x 3-3/4 inches; 16 pages, 2 of which are 1-3/8 inch square fold-overs with fold-over needle case opposite titlepage. Bound: leporello style, folds going into buff colored Rising Stonehenge paper, painted button closure, which in turn is housed in custom-made carrying case of grey Canson paper over boards, solander case, decorated with 4 rows of 3 each mother-of-pearl shirt buttons sewn on front, title painted on top lid as needle-case. Hand-painted and hand-lettered and hand stitched by Laura Davidson. The artist has outfitted her "etui" with needle and a "case of needles" and scissors, thread, buttons, tape measure, thimble, spare buttons, needle threader, all painted trompe l'oeil rather than the actual items. The text is lettered across and vertically, interspersed with the items in the traditional sewing kit, and reads "Manage Loose Ends / Protect / Form Attachments / Closure / Take Measures. The items and words are visually connected by chain stitching in tan. From the everyday objects now found in hotel rooms around the world, these traveler's necessities were, in past centuries, luxury items for the wealthy. Made of porcelain, or enamel, or carved semi-precious stone, these small items carried not only needles but perfume, comb, forks, and other items that the wealthy aristocrat of the 18th and 19th century thought "necessary" - hence the term "necessaire" to cover these beautiful objects. Today's sewing kits may not come close to the elegance or beauty of those of Battersea enamel or Limoges porcelain, but this one does! See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Helpers of the Southwest: A Guide for Young Travelers / Ayudantes Animales del Sudoeste Un Guía Para Viajeros Jóvenes

      Richmond, California:: Art Hazelwood,, 2015.. Edition of 25. 12 pages; 14.25 x 11.25". Octagonal shaped. Text bilingual (Spanish and English). Printed on Banks Cream Long Grain papers. 12 woodcuts with screenprinted borders and texts. Hand bound by the artist with decorative covers and screenprinted cover title. Art Hazelwood: "This handprinted book in Spanish and English text offers the viewer a series of allies in the ever more threatening passage across the desert regions of the US Mexico border. Ayudantes Animales del Sudoeste - Un Guía Para Viajeros Jóvenes, Animal Helpers of the Southwest - A Guide For Young Travelers is a book inspired both by the struggles of people as they are driven to take dangerous risks in this harsh environment, and also by the native cultures of the Southwest. "I have lived on the Zuni Reservation in New Mexico off and on for the last four years and the tradition there of small carved animal figures, called fetishes, carry with them a suggestion of protective animal spirits. The animals were not drawn from photos or direct observation. It was my intention to visualize the animal I could see in my mind, that I could see in dreams. Like the animal fetishes these animal helpers offer their specific aid. The Desert Tortoise provides water, the Kangaroo Rat night vision. As surveillance and the border wall grow out from more populous areas it drives migrants to cross in ever more dangerous places. The heat tolerance of a Rattlesnake and the guidance of a Coyote are needed. "For all the young travelers now seeking to reach family or escape other dangers at home I offer this small fetish object - a book of twelve animals in woodcut with screenprinted text and borders."

        Interluceo. Papercut Illustrations by Beatrice Coron. Watermarks by Helen Hiebert.

      Helen Hiebert Studio, Red Cliff, CO 2015 - Artist's book, one of 25 copies, each signed by the designer / papermaker, Helen Hiebert and dated on the titlepage, all on her own handmade papers, 75% cotton / 25% abaca blend paper to showcase watermarks; pigmented abaca pulp to create the rainbow spectrum of translucent papers. Page size: 9- 3/16 x 9-3/16 inches: 72pp; including colophon and endsheets. Bound by Claudia Cohen: hand-sewn exposed spine, grey paper wrappers printed with title and geometric shapes in darker grey on front panel, housed in custom- made plum silk over boards with title printed blind on grey paper laid onto spine. 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). The text was printed letterpress in Dante by Tom Leech, Palace of the Governors Press, Santa Fe, NM from polymer plates made by Boxcar Press. The designer / papermaker, 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. From the cut-out and collaged seven- sided form on the titlepage to the diamond-shaped text of colophon, all in this book is simple and simply elegant. 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 exhibited in these beautiful pages. The ultimate reward is the turning of each page as the story unfolds through forms as well as color and light. Abstract enough for the reader to enter his own story, but concrete enough to be visual poetry, this is a wonderful book. See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      Petaluma, California:: Mixolydian Editions,, 2015.. Edition of 36, 9 APs + 5 Hors de Commerce.. 13 x 7"; 32 pages. Designed and printed by Richard Wagener. The text was composed in Monotype Bembo, cast by Patrick Reagh, Sebastopol, California, and printed on handmade Twinrocker paper. The engravings were printed from boxwood blocks on handmade Yamagampi paper. Deirdre Hassad, Melbourne, Australia, created the calligraphic title. The book was bound by Lisa Van Pelt in Philo, California, using handmade Twinrocker paper for the cover. The slipcase was made with handmade paper from Papeterie St-Armand, Montreal. Signed and numbered by Richard Wagener. Mixolydian Press: "During the Codex Book Fair and Symposium in 2013 , Richard Wagener and Alan Loney met and began a collaboration that considered the idea of weaving. Sixteen color engravings inspired a beautiful poem and together they became a book titled Loom, published in 2014 by Nawakum Press and Mixolydian Editions. "A special print developed for the deluxe edition of Loom led to a series of five engravings and a new poem taking a different approach to weaving and textiles. Alan Loney notes 'this poem might seem to break a very old tradition - in both Hesiod and Homer a woven cloth is often described as 'a wonder to behold', and the craft that creates that wonder is registered by the tightness of the weave, known by the ancient Greeks as harmonia - in Richard's engravings the apparent weave is loose, open, broken, torn, decayed - yet something about these ruins, these remnants, is nevertheless, to my sense of it, in as deep a harmony with the reality of our lives as lived as anything I know in the engraver's art - I can only hope that the poem is similarly open-ended & fragmentary as the art that stirred & buoyed the writing on its way.

There are eighteen illustrations that are hand colored through the pochoir technique. The yellow and blue cover design is based on an iilluminated Koran leaf from 1313. Printed in Legend type on Lettre paper and handbound at the Press. Housed in a blue cloth box with a paper title label on the spine. The box's front flap is held shut by a neodymium magnet.

        Encheiresin Naturae Fifteen engravings by Barry Moser and a heroic crown of sonnets by Paul Muldoon.

      Santa Rosa, California:: Nawakum Press,, 2015.. Edition of 50. 14 x 18.25; 76 pp. Edition of 50, 40 numbered copies for sale and 10 copies, lettered A to J, hors de commerce. The paper is mouldmade Zerkall and handmade Twinrocker. The binding is half leather with marbled paper over boards. In a drop spine box covered with scarlet Japanese cloth and featuring an embedded, hand-hammered and annealed copper plate. Three prints from the book are housed in a Saint-Armand handmade paper chemise. Nawakum Press: "Encheiresin Naturae is a creative collaboration between Barry Moser, the renowned American artist, and Paul Muldoon, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Irish poet. Moser's strikingly new abstract images, invented and engraved for this Nawakum Press edition, intimately consort with Muldoon's new and powerful, unpublished poems. "Fifteen abstract relief engravings were invented and engraved by Moser in his studio in Hatfield, Massachusetts in 2014. They were inspired by the phrase encheiresin naturae taken from reading Goethe's Faust, referencing an alchemist's experiments in "manipulating nature." Muldoon was asked to respond to the images poetically, and he chose an advanced form of a crown of sonnets, known as a sonnet redoublé, or heroic crown of sonnets for his tour-de-force response. [A crown of sonnets is a sequence of sonnets on a single theme, each exploring one aspect of the theme, linked by repeating the final line of the preceding sonnet as the first line of the next. In an advanced form, the heroic crown of sonnets or sonnet redoublé, the final sonnet is made up of all the first lines of the preceding fourteen, in order.} "In Encheiresin Naturae each of Muldoon's sonnets is paired opposite a Moser engraving, which has been printed directly from the block. These new non-representational images mark a major departure in the engraver's work. Moser was trained early on as an abstract painter in the halcyon days of the Abstract Expressionists, and these engravings are, in a manner, a return to beginnings. Poet John Ashbery has referred to Moser's work as 'never less than dazzling.' Jasper Johns refers to these images as 'terrific and surprising.'" The edition is published in one boxed state.
