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. Bookseller Inventory # 9042

Item Description: Foolsgold Studio and Springtide Press, [Vashon, WA and Palo Alto, CA], 2016. Artist's book, one of six copies, all on black Revere paper, each copy unique with a variation of the final Cibachrome print (Winged Grief), each copy signed and numbered by the artist / poet, Jacqueline Thurston, on the colophon. Page size: 15 x 13.5 inches; 28pp; 4 of which are gate-fold. Bound by Donald Glaister, assisted by Gabby Cooksey, the pages on tabs to allow for complete opening of each page spread, full black goatskin with two recessed panels, one 9-1/8 x 3-7/16 and the other 9-1/8 x 2-7/16 inches, each abstract design composed of onlaid black triangles in stingray and ostrich, water snake and goatskin, mesh edging (gold and silver), the base of the panels in a sanded and "ruffled" steel-grey leather, title blind stamped on spine, doublures of cork dyed black (by Suzanne Moore), headbands with gold bordered by black on top and silver bordered with black on bottom, signed by the binder on lower rear turn-in with this customary gold dot, housed in custom-made black cloth over boards clamshell box, lined with black felt, title in black on paper label, grey shaded to black, with author / photographer and date. The text comprises two poems and two written reflections by Jacqueline Thurston, formatted and letterpress printed by Jessica Spring at Springtide Press in Mrs. Eaves type, printed in light grey, from photopolymer plates. The book was elegantly designed by Donald Glaister, Jessica Spring, and Jacqueline Thurston. The four images, each 9.25 inches square, are Cibachrome (ilfochrome) prints, a dye destruction positive-to-positive photographic process where the print is made on a dimensionally-stable polyester base, using silver metals. Produced in a restrained, elegiac palette of black, gray, and silver, SHADOWLAND opens with "Night of Shadows," a celebration of the enigmatic nature of dreams and a close encounter between Earth and Mars that occurred in the summer of 2003. It closes with "Winged Grief," a tribute to the artist's mother. Shells and stones, skeletons, lichen and pods, compose the haunting, shimmering images. This is a stunning book - at once personal yet universal in appeal. The use of black paper and grey type could have resulted in a much darker book, but it didn't. The design and images positively glisten and the reader / viewer is completely engulfed in the wonders of the natural world - through the artifice of text and images. A splendid book!Jacqueline Thurston is an artist, writer, and Professor Emerita at San Jose State University. She is twice the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and was a Fulbright Scholar to Egypt. Thurston's photographs are in major national and international museum collections, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Library of Congress; the International Museum of Photography; the Carnegie Museum of Art; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Cantor Museum; the University of New Mexico Museum of Art; the Center for Photography at Arizona University; the Bibliotheque Nationale, France; and the Bibliotheque Alexandria, Egypt.

Item Description: Foolsgold Studio, Vashon, WA, 2016. Artist's book, one of 10 copies, from a total edition of 12 for sale, 10 regular, 2 deluxe (Sold Out), pages on polyester film and various metals and binders board, each copy signed by the artist, Donald Glaister, on the colophon. Page size 14 x 12 inches; 32pp. Bound by the artist: textured and painted paper over boards, hand-sewn with each page on tabs to allow complete opening of each page spread, black morocco spine, with sanded aluminum insets on front and back panels; title indicated by three parallel cut-outs in the aluminum inset on front panel suggesting a counting system, housed in custom-made black cloth clamshell box. The text is letterpress printed in Filosofia in various point sizes, on aluminum and polyester sheets done from photopolymer plates by Jessica Spring at Springtide Press. The drawn images are silkscreen printed on aluminum and individually painted by the artist, Donald Glaister, who designed and produced the edition, assisted by Gabby Cooksey. The texts are Zahra Partovi's thoughtful, elegant translation of VERSES (1986) by Jalaluddin Mohammad Rumi, a 12th century Persian mystic poet, published by Vincent FitzGerald and Company and the verse of Walt Whitman from the 1855 edition of LEAVES OF GRASS, starting, "I celebrate myself." The colophon / artist's statement tells us that this book is dedicated to the memory of Don Moore, Senior Engineer on the Voyager Spacecraft Project, the late brother of Donald Glaister's wife, artist Suzanne Moore. Aside from the family ties, the two Don's were close friends.The artist, Donald Glaister, writes, " 3 IN SEARCH OF THE UNIVERSE is a celebration of the search for what is beyond: beyond what we see, what we think we see, and what we know we don't see. Rumi, Whitman, and the Voyager project all were instruments of this 'grand quest.' The writers wondered at the immensity and the universality of being. The scientist gave Voyager the physical form to that wonder. It fuels our wonder still."The book begins with couplets from Rumi, letterpress printed on textured aluminum with painted accents. The effect is ethereal and timeless, as are the couplets themselves. After the Rumi pages begins a sequence of amorphous, darkly painted, textured pages with angular cut-outs that reveal hard-edged industrial forms of plastics and metals beneath. From the fold of each of these page spreads emerges a translucent page of poetry, excerpted from Walt Whitman's LEAVES OF GRASS. These seemingly incongruous elements make perfect sense given the theme of the book in general and the theme of Whitman's poetry in particular.Interspersed are the cut-out / Whitman page spreads and images reminiscent of engineering drawings painted on brushed aluminum. The aluminum paintings increase in complexity as one moves through the book. These paintings reflect the indefinite process of human creativity: the hard work as well as the flashes of inspiration that allow parts of an idea to appear fully formed in the searcher's mind. They are the visual ecstasy of "the quest." The aluminum paintings are visually oriented to the Voyager part of the trilogy but are equally applicable to the Rumi and Whitman facets as well. Man has, from the very beginning, dared to search not only his immediate environs but the immensity of all he can imagine. It is in that exploration that human beings discover themselves, as is so poignantly detailed by Rumi and Whitman. Donald Glaister's art brings us, breathtaking page by breathtaking page, to the edges of what we know of the universe, with flashes of illumination amidst the darkness, and then brings us back to the light in each of us. As well as a beautiful book, perfectly crafted, this is a profoundly moving book. To open the pages is to embark on the journey, experience the exhilaration of discovery, wonder, and joy!.

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. Bookseller Inventory # 9921

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. Bookseller Inventory # 10585
