About this Item: Chowder Bay Press, Sydney, Australia, 2012. Artist's book, one of 26 lettered copies, A-Z, plus 2 Artist Proof copies, all on Japanese Iwaki Mulberry paper for the linocuts and Rising Stonehenge paper for the poems, with wrapper supports of Suecia Antiqua Chamois, each book signed and lettered in pencil, by the artist, Peter Kingston, and the author, Robert Adamson. There are twenty-one prints by Kingston, including three long internal wrappers, a folding leporello, the upper lid of the box, and the illustrated colophon in the base of the lining. Page size: 13-3/4 x 13-3/4 inches; 14 folios consisting of poem title on recto, poem on verso, linocut (chine colle) on recto (one of which is double page fold), verso blank; plus titlepage and colophon, plus wrappers consisting of double-page linocut on Iwaki Mulberry paper to hold colophon and color photograph of Mr. Kingston and Mr. Adamson. Bound: loose as issued in linocut-printed green wrappers of Iwaki Mulberry paper showing wide-eyed, iridescent silver - pink - and blue seahorses in a black net on green ground on front of wrapper with groper swimming into the net on the back cover; the wrappers are one continuous double-size linocut - and quite an extraordinary one it is. Housed in custom-made wood box (radiata pine) with Peter Kingston's view of Sydney Harbor on a cream painted ground (by Peter Kingston) then printed silk screen with his view of Sydney Harbor in red, blue, black, and yellow and finished by hand. One the inside front cover of the box is Peter Kingston's musical score for piano, "Francis Webb's Song" printed on Rising Stonehenge paper. Francis Webb, well-regarded Australian poet and Adamson's poetic hero, was the subject of his inaugural lecture as founding Professor, CAL Chair of Poetry, University of Technology, Sydney. A light sensitive circuit plays this song without words when the box is opened. Another linocut, the logo of Chowder Bay Press, is revealed on the inside pastedown of the box, again printed in color with the wood spoon technique by Peter Kingston, again signed and numbered by him.Each of the 21 linocuts is hand finished by Peter Kingston, especially the cover wrapper of sea horses which are accomplished by hand (eyes, scales, etc.) The sea horses enchant and invite the viewer / reader to get caught in the "net" of this wonderful memory of a shared environment. Meticulously printed, designed and assembled by Nicholas Pounder, set in Bembo type, using archivally stable Japanese pigment ink, the book reflects a true collaboration between author and artist and printer. The poet Robert Adamson and the artist Peter Kingston, both born in 1943, grew up on opposite sides of Sydney Harbour: the poet on the north shore at Neutral Bay with Taronga Park and Balls Head nearby, and the artist on the south side at Vaucluse, near the now lost Wintergarden Cinema and Sydney Stadium. They shared a deep attachment to the foreshore and water, although their paths diverged: Kingston was sent to a prestigious private school, and Adamson graduated from delinquency to Long Bay Gaol; and Kingston eventually moved across the Harbour to Lavender Bay, while Adamson left for the Hawkesbury River. However in this autobiographical collaboration they recall some of the landmarks, formative events, and magical experiences of their childhood, like the seahorses that Robert Adamson used to see taunting a groper on the other side of the shark net at Balmoral, where he swam every day.Peter Kingston is a well-known Australian artist whose work is held by the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; the State Library of New South Wales, Sydney; the Museum of Sydney, several regional galleries and internationally by the Biblioteque de la ville, Belgium; and the National Film Library in Tokyo. A monograph of the artist's work titled 'Harbourlights: the art of Peter Kingston' was published in 2004. Robert Adamson, one of Australia's leading poets, has been a key player in the growth o.

About this Item: Edward Ruscha, Los Angeles, 1966. First edition, first issue with the extra flap. Inscribed by Ed Ruscha on the title page. Accordion folded; slipcase; One continuous accordion-fold page composed of glued paper segments with black-and-white photographs of every building on the sunset strip. Some browning to the spine in the original slipcase, which is in near fine condition. In the 1960s, Ed Ruscha more or less reinvented the artist’s book. By turning away from the craftsmanship and luxury status that typified the livre d’artiste in favor of the artistic idea or concept, expressed simply through photographs and text, Ruscha opened the genre to the possibilities of mass-production and distribution. The 27-foot length of the accordion-folded Every Building on the Sunset Strip affords the viewer two continuous photographic views of the mile and a half section of this landmark stretch of Sunset, one for each side of one of the city’s landmark thoroughfare" (The Getty Research Institute).

About this Item: Rarach Press, Kalamazoo, Mich, 1989. Fine art binding. Condition: Fine. Ladislav R. Hanka (illustrator). Signed Limited Edition. One of 38 copies. Poems and essays by James Armstrong and Ben Mitchell, 16 etchings by Ladislav R. Hanka, typography by Amy Bollinger. This copy beautifully bound by Peter Geraty.One of two copies bound by Geraty for an exhibition celebrating Ladislav Hanka's imprint Rarach Press: 50 x 25: An Exhibit of 50 Rarach Press Books Bound by 25 American Design Binders (Elizabeth Perkins Prothro Galleries, Bridwell Library, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX. Oct. 11 1993 - Jan. 22, 1994). The exhibition also traveled to Houston Baptist College and University of California at Los Angeles. From the Bridwell Library Exhibition catalog:"50 x 25" is not only an exhibition but also a "world premiere," of the most recent work of contemporary bookbinders in America. Arising from an invitation to twenty-five artists to create two distinct bindings of a Rarach Press imprint, the exhibition presents unique and important design bindings which make use of a wide variety of media and techniques. From the Colophon:"County Survey has been a collaborative effort among a number of longterm residents of Kalamazoo County. . Typography and letterpress work by Amy Bollinger; completed at The Private Press and Typefoundry of Paul Hayden Duensing, Vicksburg, Michigan. . The artist and publisher is Ladislav R. Hanka. . The paper is Daniel Smith Archival Print paper. The edition is 38 ." Binder's statement:I chose to focus upon the need humans seem to have for controlling the land. The book caused me to give much thought to that struggle. The land, subtle but all pervasive and yielding only with reluctance, is the molded form of the leather. The tooled grid arbitrarily bisecting the land is man's work. The airbrushed paper gives some idea as to the personality if the land and its variations.The binding is made from two skins as the book is so large. The texture of the book is made from a pressing die of aluminum foil that was wrinkled to resemble a river on a piece of binders' board. It was backfilled with gesso to harden it up and the rest of the board was textured with just plain gesso. After the leather was put on, it was allowed to set up for about 30 minutes, and then the binders' board die was placed on top and the whole thing sent through an etching press.Double board structure similar to a split board binding; concertina sewing. Full green textured Hewit Chieftain goatskin; textured and airbrushed Japanese paper inlays; gold tooling; multi-colored hand-sewn silk endbands. Gray Burga endpapers. Housed in a custom linen-covered dropback box by the binder. Bound by Peter Geraty in 1993. 51.5cm x 33cm. Seller Inventory # 225

My work is marked by events and is a mirror of the mind that is building and falling apart, having a logic but close to chaos, refusing to stay still for the camera, and giving one a sense of heaven and hell simultaneously."RARE.

About this Item: New York, 2013. Unique artist's books (4 in this witches' library) and book object, size of object: 13-1/2 x 8-1/2 x 9-1/2 inches signed and dated by the artist / author, Sandra Jackman, on the raised rear panel of the box, below text by the author / artist which has been collaged onto an early [found] painted book cover. Each book signed on the back cover as well. The box / book object housing three of the books is constructed around a cabinet [an echo chamber?] in a black cloth-covered box. The interior of the box is covered with blood-red silk file; witches, skeletons and other-worldly creatures fill the echo chamber. The inside door has framed three-dimensional collage of paper, found objects, with title, THE WITCHES' SABBATH Other Stories, above and on the frame of the collaged picture. Tiny creatures and thick grey shadows hover on exterior walls and door. All materials acid-free papers and adhesives, oil and acrylic paint, wax, ink. Other materials used include wood, metal findings, glass, hair net, tiny plastic figures. A separate pouch contains a flashlight and handmade doll (witch) which can be turned on by pushing bottom of flashlight to a constant or flashing light to illuminate the interior of the box. Another pouch lettered in red, "What is present will soon be past/ What is past may still be present in another form" contains Book 4, "Tales of the Witches' Sabbath / of Mid / Nights." Page size: 3 x 5 inches; 27 double-sided pages are painted in thick black oil and collaged with text and images. Random texts include "Why no outcry to crucify Lucifer? Time and place turned inside out. Divinations Accusations / Read the tract on superstition, magic and religion." and "We must listen to the silence." Outlines of cats are collaged onto black painted pages - some pop-ups - most three dimensional. Text is hand printed, typed, and computer-generated as well as stamped.A drawer nearly the length and depth of the cabinet beneath the entrance door pulls out to reveal a miniature (1 x 1 inch) accordion book as well as a hand of translucent plastic with fingertips of burnt paper with unreadable text. This is Book 3. Painted images of strange creatures fill the 11 pages. The book can be examined in situ along with the other elements stored there. A sliding bolt holds the door to the cabinet shut. Book 1 is held in a pocket installed on the right hand outside wall of the; book is double sided, measures 6-1/2 x 4-1/4 inches; hand-sewn binding in paper over boards, front cover displays a small painting of two witches with their mouths open. There are other tiny creatures hovering on both back and front of the book. THE WITCHES' SABBATH is pressure stamped on the spine and is just barely visible. The author / artist has painted and collaged each page including images and text - the witches own language and dialect - "to appease the purists amongst us" according to the artist.Book 2, "What Happens Next," fits into a pocket on the roof of the cabinet, a slim fold out, 6 x 2 inches, 6 double sided pages including the cover. Some attendees of the celebration - Circe, Jezebel, Medea, Hekate, Morgan Le Fey - are named on each of the colorful pages. The text of the back cover starts, "Someone strikes a match. The flame comes to life."The left outside wall holds a framed painting on glass depicting a witch watching a large insect. This is accomplished in oil paint and in a scratch board style. Historically the Witches' Sabbath is a pagan rite that is connected with devil worship. Long a source of inspiration for Western European artists, Hans Baldung and Goya each had a go at images. Authors such as Goethe and Meyrink are just two names on a long list of writers to describe the celebration. Composers such as Berlioz and Mussorgsky have been inspired by the rite known as Witches' Sabbath. Witches have wormed their way into mythology, religion, history, and children's literature, as well as contemporary fiction (John Updike and Ira Levin are just two examp. Seller Inventory # 10733

About this Item: Gatti & Dura, Naples, 1834. Oblong octavo, approximately 5-7/16" x 7-1/8" (140 mm. x 182 mm.). In accordion format, measuring an impressive 142-1/2" when fully extended. In a contemporary half mid-tan leather patterned board folder with gilt-rolled spine. The volume consists of a lithographic title + 18 hand-coloured lithographic plates signed in the stone by the artist + 1 plate of lithographic music for the tarantella in piano score. Each plate with an animated illustration of a dancing couple with text describing the execution of the particular step being illustrated below the image. Binding slightly worn. Slight foxing; minor soiling to edges; two plates with tape repair to inner blank margins; final leaf laid down. First Edition. Quite rare. Not in Leslie, Beaumont or Magriel. Derra de Moroda 2105. OCLC (3 copies only, at Harvard, the New York Public Library, and the Austrian State Library). See Colas 921.APBC records one complete copy only at auction since 1923; an incomplete copy with 10 plates only was sold in 1955. Both the drawings by Dura (1805-1878) and the colouring are particularly well-executed. "The tarantella has roots in ancient history; it is said to derive its name from the city of Tarentum (modern-day Taranto), formerly a Greek settlement on the southern coast of Italy. Historians have identified representations of the dance in ancient Greek vase paintings and on the wall paintings at Pompeii.". According to a widespread legend, the dance acquired its name because it was used as a cure for the poisonous bite of the tarantula spider. Gurzau reports that this etymological point was debated at the Venice Congress and Folk Festival in 1949, and the participants concluded that the legend was based on the similarity of the two words rather than the actuality. In apparent contradiction to this conclusion is the fact that the tarantella is performed as a kind of exorcism by the practitioners of Tarantism, an Italian possession cult comparable to the zar cult of Ethiopia or Vodun in Haiti."Stylized tarantellas have been used to add a touch of local color to the ballet stage. An early example is the tarantella created for Fanny Elssler in Jean Corallli's ballet La Tarentule (1836), the plot of which centers around real and feigned bites of the tarantula." The International Encyclopedia of Dance, Vol. 6, p. 104.A document highly important to the reconstruction of the Neapolitan tarantella. A fine example of Italian lithographic illustration.

About this Item: [Istanbul, c. 1895]. Oblong folio. Original red pebble-grained cloth, rebacked, highly decorated and lettered in gilt; 10 concertina-style co-joint mounted albumen prints of original photographs forming a continuous panorama (25 x 340 cm); cloth a little rubbed, the images very well preserved. 'Pascal Sà bah (1823â€"1886) was a photographer in Constantinople (Istanbul). He was born there to a Syrian Catholic father and an Armenian mother. In 1857, he opened his first photography studio, “El Chark Socià tà Photographic,” in Constantinople at 439 Grande Rue de Pera. In 1860, the French photographer, Antoine Laroche, directed the studio. In 1873, Sà bah opened another studio in Cairo. Pascal Sà bah suffered a stroke in 1883 and his brother, Cosmi, took charge of the business until Jean (1872â€"1947), Pascal’s son who also became a photographer, was old enough to inherit the business. To profit from his father’s fame, he signed his photographs J. Pascal Sà bah. In 1888, Jean went into partnership with a French photographer resident in Istanbul, Polycarpe Joaillier (1848â€"1904). The firm of Sà bah & Joaillier was named the Sultan’s official photographer, and at his request took photographs across the Ottoman Empire. After Joaillier’s return to Paris, Jean Sà bah sold the business in 1908' (Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection, online). A high-quality photographic panorama of late Ottoman Constantinople, with buzzling naval activity on the water and new buildings under construction.

About this Item: Edward Ruscha, Los Angeles, 1966. First edition,second issue. Small octavo, original stiff self-wrappers, original slipcase. Inscribed by Ed Ruscha to his aunt, "For Aunt Carol Ed Ruscha." One continuous accordion-fold page composed of glued paper segments with black-and-white photographs of every building on the sunset strip. Near fine in a very good slipcase. In the 1960s, Ed Ruscha more or less reinvented the artist’s book. By turning away from the craftsmanship and luxury status that typified the livre d’artiste in favor of the artistic idea or concept, expressed simply through photographs and text, Ruscha opened the genre to the possibilities of mass-production and distribution. The 27-foot length of the accordion-folded Every Building on the Sunset Strip affords the viewer two continuous photographic views of the mile and a half section of this landmark stretch of Sunset, one for each side of one of the city’s landmark thoroughfare" (The Getty Research Institute).

Four sheets pasted together to form 14 leaves (7 spreads) in leporello format: four spreads with pale cream silkscreen images and text and three spreads with 3D papercut architectural constructions with additional cream silkscreen text and images, final justification leaf loosely inserted. Silkscreen images by Gabbiani, text by Amy Gestler and papercut architectural constructions by Ingrid Siliakus. Original publisher's printed wrappers with cut-out image to front wrapper, black cloth slipcase.

From the edition limited to 28 copies (including 8 artist's proof copies numbered in Roman numerals) on Rivoli paper, with this one of 14 ordinary copies signed and numbered in pencil on the justification leaf and the verso of the final leaf. Gabbiani's artist's book is based on the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and the book it engendered: 'Devil in the White City' by Erik Larson. Larson's work treats of the architect Daniel Burnham, the impetus behind the World's Columbian Exposition, and the serial killer Dr. Holmes using the Fair as its backdrop; Gabbiani's work echoes this subject. The three highly detailed and elegant papercut constructions in the book and the papercut cover illustration by Ingrid Siliakus (listed on the colophon as 'Paper Engineer') also take their subjects from the Fair and include an elaborate representation of George Washington Gale Ferris Junior's eponymous wheel.

About this Item: Cheloniidae Press, Easthampton, MA, 2014. One of 10 copies, (+5 AP copies) all on Winsor Newton 90# Watercolor paper Hotpress paper, each copy signed and numbered by the artist, Alan James Robinson. Page size: 5 x 8.5 inches; 38pp. Bound by Peter Geraty at Praxis Bindery: accordion style with yellow cloth over boards, title stamped in gold gilt on front panel, housed in custom-made green cloth over boards clamshell box, with title stamped on front cover of slipcase. Designed by Alan James Robinson, using lettering design by Suzanne Moore originally created for A FOWL ALPHABET, the alphabet is represented by American wildflowers and their attendant insects with the titlepage, colophon and letters of the alphabet and common names of the flowers printed giclee on an Epson 9890 Giclee Printer. The 26 wildflowers and 2 butterflies are done free hand (serving as the template for the giclee edition). The wildflowers range from Red Clover to Ladyslipper to Jack-in-the-Pulpit to Knotweed and include bees, hummingbirds, spiders, and butterflies. The colors are so strong and vibrant; they belie the usual notion of etiolated watercolors. The artist, who draws with color, mixes transparent and opaque watercolors in glazing and uses pure watercolor in antique drawing pen nibs resulting in a preciseness and detail not often associated with watercolor. The alphabet in cherry red, but does not overpower the floral images; rather it boldly introduces them. Botanically accurate, these colorful, common beauties of the plant world will seem familiar, but no less welcome, to the viewer / reader. Their common names are printed in blue. This is the first book from Alan James Robinson in several years. It is lovely and true to the natural world which has always inspired this artist. Seller Inventory # 10471

Caroline's works are often paired with original, new works of poetry or are based on mythological or other classical figures; this work was inspired by James Joyce. As the short preface to the work states, "One hundred years after the first Bloomsday, 16 June 1904, a present-day Leopold Bloom travels through the Hanseatic City of Hamburg and repeats the adventures related by James Joyce, which in their turn are an elaborate play upon Homer's 'Odyssey'. The scheme is the same as in 'Ulysses': one image per chapter, each with a visual footnote to the source. There are no answers, only cross-references." One of the grandest of Ms. Saltzwedel's creations, with eighteen full-page etchings, each numbered, titled, and signed by the artist in pencil.___DESCRIPTION: This work opens with a concertina title page containing brief notes by the artist (five pages), followed by eighteen full-page, stunning, multi-colour etchings by the artist, each of the etchings are numbered "6/25" and are signed by the Artist, each etching is also titled by her, all in pencil. The images are approximately 7.75" by 11.75" on Rives Moulin de Gue paper that is approximately 11.25" by 15", and are loosely laid into the box; type is Gill Sans, monotype and hand-set. Edition of 25 copies (plus 2 Artist's Proof copies), of which numbers 1 to 10 are presented as a complete series in a Solander box with the concertina title page and notes, the box is covered in sky-blue linen cloth with white embossed lettering on the front and spine, interior is lined with white paper. The title page and notes are all printed in German, accompanying the work is an English translation provided by Ms. Saltzwedel printed on plain white paper.___CONDITION: All components are fine, as new; all paper is clean and crisp, the colours on the images deep and true, the box without fault.___PROVENANCE: From a private collector who acquired this work directly from Ms. Saltzwedel.___POSTAGE: International customers please note that additional postage may apply, please inquire for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

About this Item: NY: Random House, 1967., 1967. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Signed Limited Edition, 1967 - #68 of 365. Signed and Numbered by Andy Warhol as well as initialed 10 times on the multiples. This is a signed, limited edition of Andy Warhol's classic artist book "Index" published by the Random House, NY in 1967. The book is a compilation of interviews, art inserts, pop-ups, photographs, recording discs, and descriptions of life at the Factory. An important Warhol document and an absolutely iconic publication of the psychedelic era in New York. The photographs are by Billy Name and other Warhol co-conspirators with the assistance of Stephen Shore, Paul Morrissey, Ondine, and Nico. The book has been signed and numbered (68 of 365) by Andy Warhol on the front cover and he has also initialed all 10 multiples/objects. All objects (with the exception of the balloon which was removed before pages bound together) are present and in great shape. The accordion still squeaks! The book is bound in the original publisher's cloth-backed white printed boards with the front board featuring a silver paste down holographic montage. This is a notoriously fragile book and is prone to condition issues. This copy is no exception. I have classified the book as Near Fine+ with a split seam (see photo) and tears to two pages that occurred when Andy Warhol opened the sealed pages to initial the mobile (see images with Lou Reed disk and string mobile). As noted previously, the balloon was removed (fortunately) and only the masking tape that would hold the balloon remains (slight staining on reverse). There is also a tiny lower corner bump that appears to the front cover not affecting the contents that must have been there when Warhol signed and numbered the front cover based on the marker signature. Overall, this is a wonderful copy of a scarce and highly sought after book. Provenance: Edward Weston Editions. Cited in "The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century" by Andrew Roth. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 000493
