Item Description: 21st Editions/Journal of Contemporary Photography, South Dennis, MA, 2002. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. Based on the poetry of William Blake, “Songs of Experience” is one of those rare books that grabs the viewer by the throat and shocks us into reexamining our preconceived notions. Following the footsteps of innovators like Picasso, Witkin represents things as we might see them with our mind’s eye, rather than our bodily eyes. And he does so with great success. Haunting figures of beheaded men, skeletons, and amputees rattle readers today just as Blake’s rhymes did over 200 years ago. The photographs themselves are beautifully reproduced on handmade paper and artfully bound in a handmade goatskin binding. Weighing over fourteen pounds, this 18” x 15” treasure is a rare blend of past and present, real and surreal. It combines every conceivable humanities discipline: art, history, literature, psychology, religion, etc. The sister book to “Songs of Experience,” “Songs of Innocence” is a unique, bewitchingly disquieting set that forces the viewer to reexamine our preconceived notions of life, art, and beauty. Following I the footsteps of innovators like Picasso, Witkin represents things as we might see them with our mind’s eye, rather than our bodily eyes. And he does so with great success. Audiences are confronted with an armless satyr, winged women, and a most unusual still life. The photographs themselves are beautifully reproduced on handmade paper and artfully bound in a handmade goatskin binding. Printed in a new 10 color, ultra-high resolution, this 18” x 15” treasure is a rare blend of past and present, real and surreal. Partnered with "Songs of Experience" it is a true marriage of the grotesque and sublime. This is not to be missed. This inspiring set is AS NEW, comes directly from the publisher, and features two rare Platinum Series titles. "Songs of Experience" contains ten bound, hand-initialed platinum prints and one free-standing, fully signed and numbered platinum print of 'Harvest,' one of Witkin's most prized and rare images. Accompanying these beautiful pictures is William Blake’s poetry, printed on valuable hand-made paper and bound in a handcrafted and tooled full Moroccan goatskin binding. The book measures 18 x 15 and weighs over fourteen pounds. Individually numbered and signed by the artist, editor, and publisher, this gorgeous book is housed in an equally striking clamshell box with a matching slipcase. "Songs of Innocence" contains ten bound, hand-initialed platinum prints and one free-standing, fully SIGNED and NUMBERED platinum print of 'Still Life,' one of Witkin's most interesting images. Accompanying these beautiful pictures is William Blake's poetry, printed on valuable hand-made paper and bound in a handcrafted and tooled full Moroccan goatskin binding. The book measures 18 x 15 and weighs over fourteen pounds. Individually numbered and signed by the artist, editor, and publisher, this gorgeous book is housed in an equally striking clamshell box with a matching slipcase. Signed by Author(s).

Item Description: 21st Editions, Steven Albahari, South Dennis, Massachusetts, 2002. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. Price is net to all; promotional discounts do not apply. First edition, first and only printing. Platinum Series limited edition of 65 signed and numbered copies (these each being #42/65). Photographs by Joel-Peter Witkin. Text by John Wood and poetry by William Blake, printed in monotype letterpress on rare hand-made papers. Design by Carolyn Eckert. Each book is individually hand-sewn and bound in hand-crafted and tooled full Moroccan goatskin, and is enclosed in an embossed basswood clamshell box. Each oversized book measures 18 x 15 inches and weighs over 14 pounds. Hand-coated platinum prints by John Marcy; Handmade paper by TwinRocker; Handbinding and decorated papers by Sarah Creighton; Letterpress printing by Michael Russem; Text composition by Michael Bixler. Each edition includes 10 bound-in hand-initialed platinum prints, and an additional free-standing, signed and numbered platinum print, each among Witkin's most sought-after images (Songs of Experience includes "Harvest" and Songs of Innocence includes "Still Life, Mexico"). Each edition is numbered and signed by the artist, the editor and the publisher. CONDITION: Both editions are New (books, prints and clamshell boxes all in pristine, flawless condition). From John Wood: "No visual artist since Blake himself is better suited to illustrate the Songs of Experience than Joel-Peter Witkin, for Witkin is the most profoundly religious photographer in the history of the medium and probably the most god-haunted American artist of the twentieth century. His imagery, like Blake's, is a direct outgrowth of his spirituality. Witkin understands that art and religion are made of the same things: sex, death, and God. In Blake's own time few people could perceive the prophetic nature and spirituality of his work. Two centuries later we see him far more clearly, but in his day his visionary claims coupled with an art like no one had ever before seen or read made him an outsider. When artists see beyond what others insist on calling the 'real' world, when they shape new realities, such as Cézanne and Picasso did, or shape new mythologies from the very flesh of the ones we know, and then insist that the deity they reveal is historical, orthodox, and authentic, those artists begin to disturb us deeply. They undermine our security. They demand we look again at what we thought we had seen, that we look through their eyes, and that we look more deeply than we ever before had looked." From the artist (Songs of Innocence): "If our first book was glorious, this one will be mystical. There is a Buddhist saying -- To everyman is given the key to the Gates of Heaven -- but the same key also opens the Gates of Hell. That is the difference between innocence and experience. It is what compels our desire to live. It is why, for those who can see it, Blake is God's jester. Blake was so wise that he could see 'nature as the work of the Devil.' He stated that 'The Devil is in us as far as we are in nature.' It is only when we are disengaged from mortality -- at death -- that evil leaves us. Then, after Judgment, either our chains are broken or we are 'his' Evermore. Logic, the rational - these are options, the Soap Operas of Divine Belief. Philosophy is a soiled diaper. Darwin playing in guano some where in a Bosch landscape. The subjects of my work are not freaks, degenerates, or the grotesque. They are ourselves. In this violent and visually wallpapered age, I have chosen to evoke the darkness rather than the light: as Goya, Blake and Redon have. Because we argue for Divine Madness as an honorable choice in a society devoid of human honor. The themes of my work are the things which constitute human existence, history, beauty. The work has at its very core the evidence of conscience presented as photographic metaphor. I strive to create experiences no one has seen or felt before." Signed by Author.

Item Description: Steven Albahari (2004), South Dennis, MA, 2004. Hardcover. Book Condition: vg. 1/915. Folio. 171, [2]pp. Original red silk with illustrated paste-down on cover and black lettering on spine. Book housed in its original cream cloth clamshell box. Red lettering on spine of box with black silk ribbon band on inside. Original signature of Witkin on clamshell, front endpaper, and colophon. Elaborate publication, combining the two texts and 22 of the classic images that appeared in the platinum versions. Accompanied by 40 never-before published images of the artist's work, all printed in a new 10 color, offset process on 100% cotton Arches paper. "The Songs of Innocence and of Experience are the most well-known works of William Blake, the greatest mystical writer in the English language.There was certainly no other artist in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries like William Blake, and there has been no other artist in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries like Joel-Peter Witkin, whose prophetic claims are similar to Blake's. "Christ is my Life," he has written. "I photograph the living and the dead. My work is a prayer. Photographing makes me the possessor of sanctified and secret wisdom. And for that, I will be judged, not by man - but by God." Both Blake and Witkin are unique to their own times, yet there is a similarity within their visions because sacred knowledge such as theirs can only come from an intimate dialogue with the boundless, non-corporeal part of the soul." (J. Wood). Most of the illustrations are staged tableaux, some are in photomontage. Witkin's techniques include scratching the negative, toning or bleaching the print, and using a hands-in-the-chemicals printing technique. Edited and with an introduction by John Wood. Publisher's card, announcing this and other works laid-in, as issued. Slight staining on clamshell box, book in fine condition. Visually striking images by the controversial photographer accompanied with poems by Blake. Numbered, limited first edition (Trade edition). Bookseller Inventory # 32225

Item Description: 2004. Photographs by Joel-Peter Witkin. Poetry by William Blake. 40 never before published images of Witkin's most recent work (including stunning color plates) seamlessly blend with 22 classic images from our recent Platinum Series titles. The first photographic book printed in a new 10 color, ultra high resolution process on lush 100% cotton Arches paper. Limited edition is printed on 16x20 paper. The image is 11x14 platinum oval of Eve Knighting Daguerre. Edition of 70. There are very few books of English poetry that exist in more editions than these Songs, but no edition before now has ever attempted to resee Blake's actual Vision in the fabric of a later time. Witkin's Blake is as important a contribution to art as it is to mystical thought. The words of the greatest Western visionary of the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries have now been translated into visual images by the greatest Western visionary of the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries, yet the timeless content of their work is the same. View Limited Edition Print New York, 2004. numerous color and black-and-white illustrations, 12-1/4x13-1/4". As New. Cat# ZC216 LTD-NOPRNT Limited Edition. Bookseller Inventory # 832
