        Aurora Teardrops - Deluxe Edition, the Author's Copy

      Vancouver: Heavenly Monkey. Fine+. 2016. Limited Edition; First Printing. The Deluxe Edition (7.5 x 10 inches, approx. 65 pages including prints) will be 26 lettered copies, of which 20 will be offered for sale. There also will be eight numbered hors de commerce copies for contributors. Six two-page color reproductions of Jane Maru?s batik paintings, printed on semi-transparent vellum, will be interleaved among the text pages. Each copy will also include an original frontispiece watercolor painting by Jane. The Deluxe copies were signed by Harold Budd, Jane Maru & David Sylvian. Handbound in clear Plexiglass boards with slipcase. While not marked as such, this partcular copy, lettered "X", was one of Harold Budd's personal copied; Harold started writing the 59 poems that form Aurora Teardrops during his first collaboration with artist Jane Maru: a collection of her short films and his accompanying scores, entitled Jane 1-11. It was, however, her batik paintings on silk that he first encountered, and it is these batiks that form the vibrant visual core for Aurora Teardrops. Heavenly Monkey publisher Rollin Milroy worked with Harold and Jane for over two years on the book?s content and design, experimenting with (and discarding) a variety of ideas before settling on what all three felt was the right combination of materials, methods and presentation. Like all Heavenly Monkey books, Aurora Teardrops is printed letterpress. While letterpress is not uncommon among the today?s small- and fine-press publishers, Heavenly Monkey is one of just a handful of studios that print from a traditional handpress ? nothing is automated: everything, including inking the type, is done by hand. This is not a token exercise in antiquarianism: we use a handpress because only it offers the flexibility to achieve the best possible results. The poems and introductory texts have been set in Cancelleresca Bastarda, a widely-admired face designed by Jan van Krimpen in the 1930s and briefly available in metal from the renowned Enschede foundry. It has not, however, been cast in many decades, and what few old fonts remain usually are worn and lacking the many alternate characters van Krimpen created. Aurora Teardrops is set in the first digital version of Cancelleresca Bastarda, created by typographer Pablo Impallari, and printed from polymer plates (i. e. rather than metal type, it is printed from polymer type; the letterpress process is otherwise exactly the same). Interleaved throughout the book are six of Jane Maru?s batik paintings, reproduced in full color on traditional drafting vellum, a semi-transparent sheet that creates a visual effect similar to the original works on silk. Being semi-transparent, these prints both interrupt and overlay Harold?s poems, creating an interaction between the two artists similar to their live musical performances of the Aurora Teardrops poems. Each of the Deluxe copies also includes, as a frontis, an original watercolor painting by Jane ; 65 pages; Signed by Author .

        A Guide to Florida, 2016.

      Tallahassee, Florida:: Small Craft Advisory Press,, 2016.. Edition of 70. 4.5 x 5.5" case bound cloth over boards. Pink outline of Florida on front board. Letterpress printed. Fold outs. Pink end papers. Numbered. . Small Craft Advisory Press: "A Guide to Florida, 2016 honors the original manuscript prepared for the Department of Public Instruction in 1939. Twelve writers and twelve artists have reinterpreted the text, filtering the culture of Florida from 1939 through their individual views of American culture in 2016." Colophon: "This book was made by twelve writers and twelve artists who were paired together through a lottery system, and assigned a chapter from the original 1934 manuscript. They were given a list of design constraints to use for their re-interpretation of the original text. Like a graphic design game, there were rules to follow: the only font that could be used was Perpetua 10, 12 or 14 point, and the only colors were Pantone 101 (yellow), Pantone 230 (magenta), Pantone 298 (blue) and black. Pairs were assigned a specific page structure with their essay. Some of the collaborators chose to break these rules." Jessica Peterson, Introduction: "It is difficult to articulate a singular definition for American culture. State by state, our diversity is as strong as what we have in common. ... "The Works Project Administration (WPA) was the first and last large scale project to attempt to define America through its diversity rather than its similarity. The federal government instated the WPA in 1934 to boost the economy by hiring artist to document their native American cultures in writing, painting, design and photography. ... "Federal Writers' Project was a component of the WPA tasked with recording and writing as much about American life as possible. This group of over 6,000 writers collected recipes, songs, folklore, and slave narratives within their individual communities. Collectively, they wrote A Guide to the States, a series of 48 books, one for each state. Chapters in Florida: A Guide to the Southernmost State were written anonymously by Florida writers like Zora Neal Hurston and Carita Doggett Corse. The text describes a place of so many cultures and ecosystems that a singular identity for Florida would be difficult to describe. "After they finished Florida: A Guide to the Southernmost State, the writers were asked by the Florida State Department of Public Instruction to prepare a book of essays about the ecology and history of Florida for school children. This manuscript was never formally published. It was placed on the shelves at the Florida State Archives in a library binding, type-written on thin sheets of onion skin. "I found this manuscript. ... The essays create a delightful summary of Florida's culture: full of plants, ocean water, stars, and local legends. The diversity of Florida is both acknowledged and celebrated. "A Guide to Florida, 2016 honors the original manuscript. ... Twelve writers and twelve artists have reinterpreted the text, filtering the culture of Florida from 1939 through their individual views of American culture in 2016."

        T. E. Lawrence's Correspondence with Edward and David Garnett, the finely bound full goatskin limited edition, copy # 23 of 40

      Salisbury: Castle Hill Press, 2016. First and limited edition. Leather bound. This is the publisher?s full goatskin limited edition of T. E. Lawrence's Correspondence with Edward and David Garnett, an important installment in the T.E. Lawrence Letters series published by Castle Hill Press, the premier editors and fine press publishers of material by and about T.E. Lawrence. The edition is limited to a total of 377 numbered copies, of which 40 were beautifully bound thus for subscribers, in full crimson goatskin with gilt spine print, blind front cover rules, all edges gilt, head and tail bands, marbled endpapers, and gilt rule turn-ins. Featuring a frontispiece, and an index, the volume is housed in the publisher's felt-lined red cloth slipcase. The publisher?s 40 full goatskin copies are also unique in content, these (along with the 45 quarter goatskin copies) featuring a 14-page supplement which contains the surviving (unerased) marginal annotations by Edward Garnett on the Oxford Times proof of Seven Pillars of Wisdom. This copy is hand-numbered ?23? on the limitation page and the Editor?s Foreword is hand-signed. This is an as-new copy, acquired by us from the publisher, pristine in every respect. T.E. Lawrence (1888-1935) achieved fame from his remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as ?Lawrence of Arabia.?  But Lawrence?s literary and intellectual reach far exceeded the world and words of Seven Pillars of Wisdom. To the point, Lawrence?s friend Winston Churchill said:  ?Lawrence had a full measure of the versatility of genius?  a savant as well as a soldier?. an archaeologist as well as a man of action? an accomplished scholar as well as an Arab partisan? a mechanic as well as a philosopher.  His background of somber experience and reflection only seemed to set forth more brightly the charm and gaiety of his companionship, and the generous majesty of his nature.?  (Great Contemporaries, p. 166) This volume charts and reveals Lawrence?s literary ambitions, as well as his engaging facility as a correspondent. From the publisher: ?Garnett, at the time one of the most influential figures in the British literary world, was the first critic to read Seven Pillars. He became Lawrence's literary mentor and they remained friends for the rest of Lawrence's life. From 1928 Edward Garnett's son David, a noted novelist, also corresponded with Lawrence. Both father and son constantly urged Lawrence to continue writing. David Garnett would later edit the first major collection of Lawrence's letters? Correspondence with Edward and David Garnett ? contains many important letters that set out Lawrence's writing ambitions and self-criticisms, while others reveal how much he had studied and practised the craft of writing. Some of the correspondence has been published or partially published in general collections, but all the letters gain considerably from being presented in the context of the entire surviving correspondence, accompanied by scholarly notes. The volume documents, among other things, the history of Garnett's 1922 abridgement of the 'Oxford' Seven Pillars which, at Bernard Shaw's behest, Lawrence decided not to publish? The correspondence also proves beyond any possible doubt that it was not until Lawrence accepted the subscription scheme for the 1926 edition of Seven Pillars that he decided to make no money, personally, from the book. If fame corresponded to achievement, Edward Garnett would be a famous name in English literature for the help he gave to aspiring writers such as D.H. Lawrence, Joseph Conrad, and others. But he was by nature a 'back-room boy'. He avoided fame, refusing the offer of public honours that he richly deserved. Lawrence, however, had no doubt how deeply he was in Garnett's debt. In gratitude he gave Garnett the manuscript of his second book, The Mint.?
