Item Description: Foolsgold Studio, Cleveland, OH, 2002. One of 60 copies, each signed and numbered by the artist / author, Donald Glaister; 10 of which HC, all on 10 mil aluminum. Page size: 14 x 12"; 28pp. Bound: quarter leather grey Nigerian goatskin with aluminum onlays on front and back. The aluminum pages are set on paper hinges for ease of opening. Endpapers of coarse black textured paper. The book is housed in a felt-lined aluminum box. There are portraits of the Brooklyn Bridge which are painted with acrylics on sanded aluminum as well as collages suggesting the construction of the bridge which are also on sanded aluminum and painted, with wire aluminum tape, laminated polyester film and sand all attached to the pages. The type is Avant Garde and is silkscreen printed. Selected for inclusion in Wellesley College exhibition and catalogue RESONANCE AND RESPONSE (2005).The Brooklyn Bridge has, since its opening in 1883, inspired many writers and artists: Hart Crane and Walker Evans perhaps the most famous of these. The bridge was, on completion, the first Steel Cable Suspension Bridge, the longest suspension bridge in the world, and the first major bridge to use multiple pneumatic caissons. Designed by John Roebling and completed by his son, Washington Roebling, the bridge still inspires, perhaps more so as the country's vision of one of their national monuments changed on September 11, 2001. Donald Glaister, one of the world's pre-eminent designer bookbinders has, for the first time, created an edition book and it is a beauty. In materials that are not what one would expect for a book - but completely in keeping with the subject of the book - it is contemporary book art of the very highest quality. Long out of print, it has not been offered for sale in a number of years. Donald Glaister's poem reads:The Bridge spans.Brooklyn to Manhattan. Ancient to modern.Heavy mass to lacy space.Stone to steel.The Bridge moves.Vertical to horizontal to diagonal,joined in a dizzying dance by sweeping linesinspired by natural grace.The Bridge defines.Bold and practical. A vital invention.An icon for the nation, built by dreamers.The Bridge endures.She has seen it all. Peace and war,plenty and need, vice and honor,the sublime and the horrific.She stands watch and does not yield.The gracious lady stands in the riverand does not yield. See an Image.

Item Description: Foolsgold Studio, Vashon, WA, 2007. One of 60 copies, 50 of which are for sale, all signed and numbered by the artist / author, Donald Glaister, each book on pages of painted stiffened fabric on which dimensional constructions are mounted, text printed on Zerkall Frankfurt paper. Page size: 15-1/4 x 9-1/4 inches; 40pp. Bound by Donald Glaister: quarter leather made of Nigerian goatskin with wood veneers and cloth over boards, housed in drop spine box made at Book Lab II. The artist tells us that this new book is inspired by hand-made wooden sailboats, citing their custom craftsmanship, exotic materials and a balance of wild adventure and the need to survive it all. The result, he adds, is a happy combination of these elements resulting in a beautiful contradiction: a craft that is serenely graceful yet brutally sound. His book is an homage to the material and spiritual grace of these boats and to sailing.The text is a two-part poem with studies of the materials used to make sail boats, the spirit of sailing, and the rhythm of the sea. Most of the book's painted, stiffened fabric pages have original collages of painted cloth, wood veneer, brass, cork, linen thread and acrylic paint - all materials used in boat building. The poem is printed letterpress by Jessica Spring at Springtide Press in Scala Sans typeface. The result is an intriguingly beautiful book with images at once reminiscent of ancient Greek or Roman triremes or Viking Drakkar (Dragon) war ships, but at the same time completely contemporary or rather anticipating future designs. The perfections of Mr. Glaister's book construction, not to mention the overwhelming beauty of each page on which a variety of materials are organized and manipulated to make an astonishingly original work of art, directly correspond to the beauty and exacting skill necessary to build a wood sail boat. By deconstructing the idea a "boat" - as well as the very notion of navigating on water - Mr. Glaister has constructed a perfect book. See an Image. Bookseller Inventory # 9921

Page size: 8 inches square, 15pp. Bound by the artist, Donald Glaister, exposed sewn spine, mylar and collage. The text, a short essay of 99 words, on the nature of being and the history of time, is laser printed in gill sans. The pages are mylar encapsulated, with interior collages of various materials. Mr. Glaister has created the ultimate deconstructed book. The artist states, "Description: A Few Questions is an informal exploration of the nature of matter, existence and time, in a prose piece of 99 words. The book is a progression of polyester encapsulations, similar to those used in document conservation, which are bound with paper hinges. The sanded film encapsulations envelop paintings, drawings and type on paper and transparent film, layered to produce an effect of depth and space within each page. The binding is made with cover boards made with encapsulations similarly constructed. See an Image. Bookseller Inventory # 10203

Ms. Moore explains that working with a key concept from each poem, she invented letter-based designs that extend the feeling and content of each poem to where the line between visual and verbal begins to blur. Her work melds, weaves, and plays with visual and verbal messages in her lettering and painting. It is printed, engraved, and for these copies, hand colored in vivid tones with silver and gold gilt. The text was set in Monotype Fairbank Italic at the foundry of Michael and Winifred Bixler and printed letterpress by Terry Chouinard, who designed this beautiful book with Suzanne Moore. A wonderful assemblage - showing the artist working through a project. See an Image. Bookseller Inventory # 10585
