This is a beautiful book, soft and delicate and poignant. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

The content in these two books is unique - the combination of calligraphy with paper-sculptured images. This Robert Frost poem depicts images of what it feels like to be cold in the snow and ice, so Dave has used liquid glass over the calligraphic handmade paper pages to suggest this sensation of cold. The paper sculptures have been encaptured in a frame to allow for the three dimensional effect."

        America, Guests Who Came to Dinner (and Stayed) #2.

      Milwuakee, Wisconsin:: Evelyn Patricia Terry,, 2016.. Series Variant, each unique. 4.625 x 5.94"; 10 pages including exteriors. Altered board book. Black & white imagery. Materials: mixed media original prints, artist' hair, thread. Signed and dated. Evelyn Patricia Terry: "belongs to a series of altered books using an edition of screen-prints, produced in 1981, with black ink on white Stonehenge paper. The text, in my handwriting, tells the same story on each book's pages, in this series, of America's current political realty - diversity and its origins. This book has 6 inside pages. Additionally, the text reflects that all nationalities, inhabiting America, came by various means, for various reasons and are here. This series uses handwriting for the text aesthetically meandering around the imagery. The front and back cover designs are created from original etchings that I produced during my 40-plus year career as a printmaker. Both cover and page imagery has been cut, torn and sewn different ways in each book. Sometimes my hair is added. As a youngster, my "nappy" hair was a source of shame. I was relieved to discover that brainwashed consumers believe themselves unworthy and allow commercials to sell us beauty at a cost to our self-esteem and health. With a paradigm shift, my once pressed and straightened hair evolved to dread locks, which I happily use as fodder in this series of artist's books.

        Passage.

      St. Paul, Minnesota:: Strong Silent Type Press,, 2016.. Second Edition of 11 + 1 variant. 16 x 16.25"; 22 pages. Silkscreen on Rives paper. Font: Myriad Pro. Drum leaf binding. Signed and numbered by the artist. Fred Hagstrom: "Passage uses images and texts from two historical books that were important for building opposition to the slave trade: An Essay on the Impolicy of the African Slave Trade by Thomas Clarkson, 1788, and Biographical Sketches and Interesting Anecdotes of Person of Color by A.Mott, 1837. Both books presented stark evidence of the cruelty of the slave trade. The Clarkson diagrams showing the conditions of how people were transported for the middle passage was a particularly important visual symbol for the abolition movement. Passage combines the diagram images with archival photographs of people who lived part of their lives as slaves." Story of Lott: "About the year 1813, his wife died, and shortly after, he bought himself and two little children for $350." Story of Jack: "Well, Jack, you back is all covered with scars and sores, and I see no place to begin to whip.

        America's Favor #1.

      Milwuakee, Wisconsin:: Evelyn Patricia Terry,, 2016.. One-of-a-Kind. 9 x 6.25 x 1"; 52 pages. Materials: mixed media original prints, handmade paper, thread and artist's hair. Signed and dated by the artist. Evelyn Patricia Terry: "," A 52 page book of 13 favors earned by African Americans after being forced to attend America's ongoing dinner party. Constructed during a 15-month period, by Evelyn Patricia Terry, from 1/20/2015 to 4/12/2016 utilizing predominantly Terry's drawing and printmaking inventory of screen-print, lithographs, collagraphs, monoprints, monotypes and etchings on Stonehenge rag paper. Both cover and interior page imagery have been cut or torn and glued and sometimes machine sewn. My hair is added and is of particular significance. As a youngster, my "nappy" hair was a source of shame. I was relieved to discover, as a grown up, that brainwashed consumers believe themselves unworthy and allow commercials to sell them beauty at a cost to self-esteem and health. With my paradigm shift, my once pressed and straightened hair evolved to dread locks, which I happily use as fodder in my artist's books. The text includes 13 favors with one-underlined 13 - letter word each - for good Luck and change. Most recently, I discovered "13" embodied female empowerment, after power seeking men began to advance "13" as bad luck. For me, the number 13 became a symbol for good luck after my questioning the reason for it being labeled "bad luck." After an installation using 13 figures (Virgin Mary statues) from "The Last Supper" as inspiration for my all female last supper themes, in 1994, my work contained references to "13."

        Afraid? Of whom am I afraid

      Cambridge, MA: Double Dutch Design, 2016. Unique artist's book, all on Arches Text wove paper for text and used teabags, unfolded, washed, and flattened, with smoke decorations and burn holes, all made with incense stick, allowing glimpses of the text and mica on the adjacent Arches sheets, signed by the artist on the colophon. Page size: 3-1/16 square; 74 leaves lettered or decorated. Bound by the artist: hand sewn concertina style binding with used teabags sewn into the concertina folds; wrapped in Japanese tissue and fastened with pearl-headed stick pin through two gold gilt squares, housed in a found hand-made copper box with diminutive piano hinge lid, box painted dark brown with rock as "handle" glued to top, box worn with paint rubbed at extremities revealing copper below. Emily Dickinson's well-known poem. The glittering mica contrasts so wonderfully with the smoke decorated teabags, as does the text of Dickinson's verse. Smoke decoration is traditionally associated with 18th and 19th century American folk-art and appropriately serves here to illuminate words of Emily Dickinson. A beautiful interpretation of a 19th century American masterpiece.

Screen processes: paper cutting; pen and ink drawing; hand coloring; pop-outs. Stephen Sidelinger: "The Summer Palace (Yi He Yuan in Chinese) was first built in 1764 by Emperor Qianlong. The Palace and Gardens were burned by the British and French forces in 1860. The Empress Dowager Cixi restored the Palace in 1886. The Hall of Dispelling Clouds is part of the Longevity Hill complex. (Dispelling means drive off, disperse, dissipate, or cause to vanish.) "The Hall of Dispelling Clouds is 800 square meters or 8611 square feet. It took a total of 275,724 man-days to complete the full restoration of the hall's decorative interiors. You can see the screen designs in the palace online at CCTV (China Central Television) The Summer Palace - Part 3, "Unique Architectural Skills." Thanks to C.A.S. Williams' great book Chinese Symbolism and Art Motifs - Tuttle Publishing. "The large space of the interior of the Hall of Dispelling Clouds was divided up by 29 partition lattice screens, of 5 kinds: Screen Cupboards; Railing Covers; Octagonal Covers; Kane Covers; Treasure Box Covers. "Each of the 29 lattice screens partition covers had a different design. It was this beautiful concept of the extreme mixed variety of designs that caught my attention and led to the design of this book. So there is no order to the screens in this collection. "Open each folded screen page, and look at it like a book. Then stand it up, with light behind it, and see it as a partition lattice screen wall. "The Empress Dowager Cixi, used the Hall of Dispelling Clouds only once a year, for her birthday.

        The Book of Penumbra Deadly myths retold

      Tacoma, Washington:: Gabrielle Cooksey,, 2016.. Edition of 23. 9.13 x 6.69"; 19 pages. Hand-bound accordion case binding. Thai Mulberry Black and Tengu-jo Japanese Kozo. Letterpress printed with handset type and photopolymer plates. Gold Foil Tooling. Signed and numbered by the artist. A book of small stories of death gods from around the world. Gabby Cooksey: "Death has always fascinated me because it happens to all of us yet no one talks about it. I wanted to see what other cultures personified death as through myths and legends. The gods in this book are very hushed and for some, even if you speak the name, you'll be cursed. I wanted this book to be shadows, to be played in the light. I chose a delicate paper so one could see through to the page behind it. The text is in all sorts of shapes because I wanted each story to represent the god being told about. For instance, Sedna is in the shape of drowning, Anubis is his eye, Mac is a pit with someone at the bottom. The borders are all plants, roots, and things found on the earth. Some represent death like the poppy, and the yew tree." Colophon: "These stories are told using pen and ink, then tidied up in Illustrator. Photopolymer plates were combined with handset Packard, then letterpress printed and hand colored.

        A Soldier of the Second World War

      [Cambridge, MA and Acton, ME: Double Dutch Designs, 2016. Artist's book, 1 of five copies, on Hahnemuhle paper and transparency film and translucent cotton rag vellum, signed by the artist on the colophon page which is laid in loose. Page size: 7 x 11 inches; 122pp. Bound by the artist: sewn signatures into part of green canvas vehicle cover with leather window on spine, two industrial buckles for fastening; inside of cover lined with khaki-colored silk bookcloth, housed in custom-made green cloth clamshell box. The artist's statement / colophon tells us that this book was inspired by a visit to Normandy on the 65th anniversary of D-Day. Later, while visiting an allied cemetery, seeing the beautiful flowers and immaculately groomed graves, she was struck by the dissonance between the location today and that of 1944. The dichotomy between the horror of war and the beauty of the cemeteries is realized in the images photographed by the artist, the dried flowers (picked at Grandcamp Maisy) sewn into the pages, the texts of soldiers accounts (from PBS website) and letters home(purchased by the artist) as well as vintage photographs copied and collaged make this a moving memento of the sacrifices made in World War II. Pages are torn, hand-stitched, papers interspersed, dried flowers between translucent pages followed by images from WWII printed from glass negatives of fallen soldiers, loose threads (often red), splotches of red on page visible on another providing poignant views of grave stones or soldiers or their loved ones. Printing is on an Epson Stylus Pro 3800 with Epson Ultrachrome K3 ink. It is a "scrapbook" reminding the viewer of sacrifices made by one and all during this conflict.

        For Safe Keeping. A Symbolist Poem

      [New York, NY], 2016. Unique artist's book, on acid free Heromi papers as well as papers treated by the artist, signed by the artist in black acrylic on the back of the box / book and dated 2016. Size: 3 -1/2 x 5 x 2 inches; book is a found book object of antique metal (brass with stamp "made in Austria") box crafted as an early bound book with metal clasp at foredge. The box has the look of an heirloom, a museum piece, a collector's item. It is a product of old world craftsmanship. The artist / author tells us, "FOR SAFE KEEPING is a reliquary for words. The messenger, a heart shaped box, rests on a white cotton glove sprayed with black letters. The heart is collaged with words punched out or cut from an old book of Wordswoth's poems. I repurposed the words and used them as a ghost for the new words; digitally printed but similar. A hole cut in the heart's center is a hive for words and images. The photo of an empty chair at the top of the heart speaks without words. We are being introduced to new technologies that are causing an evolution in the ways we communicate. Sign language in the form of emoticons is a recent example of using images or signs to convey a feeling. Texting has replaced phone conversation...I suggest thru a collage of words and phrases, hand writing and digital printings that the ways we use language may be relegated to history ... an archeological find. The promise of new technologies to change our communication skills has been an exciting, thought-provoking subject for a number of my artist's books. I am the fly on the wall watching." Jade adhesive was used to affix words and heart and glove to the inside front cover and well created by the "book" object. All text is hand-lettered in India ink. The heart is wood collaged with treated papers with the well in the center collaged and filled with paper and paper punched dots, and rubber-stamped on top. The fly on the wall is hand made using acid-free paper and archival ink and fabric. The cotton glove is the type used for handling rare books. The text reads (in part), "Once Upon a Time / its meaning / is / unmistakable / So many stories lay buried within the Twilight Nature of Words. / a whisper of afterlife of words / ink fades away...what then?" It is indeed a good question. Much has been written about the future of the printed word, but here an artist grapples with the problem visually and it is, perhaps, more provocative than any essay.

        Grandmothers

      Cornville, ME 2016 - Artist's book, one of 7 copies only, all on Katie MacGregor handmade paper, each signed and numbered by the artist / author, Bonnie Bishop. Page size: 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches; 64pp; including pastedowns and colophon. Bound by the artist: hand-sewn Coptic style binding, single thread sewn through each of the 8 signatures, on handmade paper wrappers painted gold, stiffened with archival paper, title printed in blind on front panel, housed in tan paper folding case. Letterpress printed in Optima by Scott Vile at the Ascensius Press. Bonnie Bishop's 7 poems are enhanced with her silkscreens and monoprints in gold. The images surrounding the text are in gold; these images are repeated in dark blue in successive pages that are a gold ground, with nature-printed leaves etc. in gold, white, blue, green and dark blue, making the text-less pages a rich tapestry with great depth. Her poem, "Showing Me the Source" is the only double-page spread, and it is embellished with a meandering stream across the centerfold, reaching to the sky or perhaps the source. The poems are all "dream-like" sequences, with reference to female relatives / ancestors who provide inspiration and stability. A most beautiful book, the fourth and last in the artist's series of books inspired by several archetypal mythologies of women. This is, perhaps, the most personal of the four and is extremely moving. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
