    Hardcover. Condition: Fine. No Jacket. A spectacular and most unusual Artists Book/Art Object in the form of a square, patterned cloth-covered case, measuring approximately 11 inches x 11 inches, which opens like a book, and is contained within a special envelope, made of plastic bubble-wrap with violet closure strings. The envelope has a small sticker with the artist's signature and the number: 004/300, attached to the front. The specially constructed wooden case with the edges painted in flat black is bound in red, black, tan with a gold leaf-patterned cloth, with a repeated design of the Manneken-Pis statue on a thin plastic strip, mounted on a larger strip of red and gold patterned cloth, which is covered by a matching size strip of clear plastic, on the lower margin of the front cover. Metallic screws & washers are used on the spine and covers. Opening the "Book-Object", inside on the left is a stiff paper folder, held down by a red & gold patterned cloth strip, this folder opens like an accordion, revealing numerous color photographs of sunsets, sunrises, and storm clouds, and which ends with a map showing wind directions on the Atlantic in April and a page of sailboat pictures; these relate to Christine Kermaire s statement at the beginning of these pictures: "Between July 2004 and September 2006, Christine Kermaire realized two Atlantic crossings with her sailing boat. Belgium departure (with as guardian angel "the icon" of Manneken-pis, famous statue situated in Brussels). She photographed the particular Atlantic sky during the depression crossing, a gale between Bermuda and the Azores, a tornado and squalls off Grenadines Islands in the Caribbean Sea." All the photographs are in color. This folder is signed and bears the number 4/300. The inside right contains four small metallic surfaced plastic relief figures of Mannekin-Pis, these are in four different colors: red, gold, green & blue, and are displayed under a clear plastic window. The inside covers are lined with black & gold, leaf-patterned cloth. Christine Kermaire (b. 1953) is a Belgian artist who specializes in Artists Books, working with among other things, plastics and applied synthetic materials. Sailing is also one of her special interests, and is reflected in this Artists Book which documents her voyages. She carried an "icon" of the famous, humorous and beloved 17th century fountain statue of "Manneken-Pis", located in Brussels, Belgium. A most desirable example of her work. A very fine copy. Rare. The cognoscenti speculate that only a small number of the proposed edition were actually completed which accounts for the scarcity of her books. Weight: 3 ½ lb Postage may be extra on this item.

    Soft cover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. First edition, LIMITED EDITION #29 of 50 copies in a total edition of 60 copies. Folio, 34pp., illustrated with 7 original acqueforti (Etchings) by Bepi Romagnoni. SIGNED BY BOTH SANESI & ROMAGNONI. Text in Italian. Roberto Sanesi, was one of the most remarkable Italian writers of his generation. A highly accomplished and prolific poet, he was capable of working in a great variety of metrical forms, and was a master of free verse. His poetry, always imbued with a certain intellectuality, ranged extensively from the confessional and anecdotal to the philosophical and metaphysical, and he could shift register with extraordinary skill, from the lyrical to the factual to the speculative, within the bound of a single poem. In this respect he had learned much from TS Eliot and Ezra Pound, whose formal diversities and virtuoso uses of poetic impersonality he adapted with great originality to his own purposes in Italian. Sanesi was also a major translator of English and American poetry, making available for the first time much of the historical and modernist canons of British, Irish and American verse. He directed Italian versions of plays by Shakespeare, Marlowe and Eliot, and wrote and translated libretti for operatic productions, including Benjamin Britten's The Turn of The Screw. A sensitive, respected and enthusiastic art critic, he was greatly loved by those whose work he championed. He created his own form of quick and fanciful pictorial calligraphy, and exhibited and published it with great success. He was also a gifted teacher and broadcaster." Very scarce. A fine copy in publisher s original case. Signed by Author(s).

    Hardcover. Condition: Fine. No Jacket. Limited Edition. A 10 ½ in. x 12 in. folder covered in brown leather; the leather is deliberately wrinkled and on the front cover studded with small beads with corner bosses and a raised skull-like figure with 'eyes' and furrowed brow. The pages are hand-made paper, some with the texture of a thin cloth; most of them have been burnished to create the aura of an ancient document. There are forty-eight leaves (96 pp., although some versos are blank). Interlaced with these are a number of thin sheets acting as tissue guards, possibly separating (what can be called) 'chapters.' These leaves alternate between those presenting color drawings of mythic animals, monsters, and landscapes, and those containing text. This text is composed of small squiggles neatly arranged: eight per line, ten lines per page. These squiggles are, supposedly, the written language of an ancient race of humanoids, telling the history of this ancient culture. Loosely laid-in are two sheets with hand-written text, one of which tells how the 'book' was found, the other being the beginning of a translation of the first pages of the 'book.' (It is all very imaginative.) An artist's book. It is the rarest of the rare: only this copy is in circulation, and only two other copies were made. In pristine condition. Signed by Author(s).

    Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Included. 7 ½ in. x 10 in. Handmade artist s book by Timothy C. Ely. Red/brown morocco spine & "diced" 1 in. sides with hand-painted board covers featuring various types of materials which have been mounted & then painted, including a set of gilt numbers on front cover: 9, 50874, 70, 43, 052, 21; raised areas with painted "marbleized" surface in various shades of red & brown, black, gold, & blue painted letters; brass corner pieces with raised oriental-appearing lettering. Containing 5 bound-in leaves "overprinted" with a black-line graph paper design on various shades of red & brown; yellow or tan letters or pictographic characters, designs, geometric figures, numerals make up the "text" of these leaves. Title page has in gilt: EQUIVALENT T. ELY 6-7-89 & iridescent foil character; other pages have letters, etc. printed in blue or iridescent silver foil on surface. Outer edges show red & gilt edged surface. Inside covers feature textured surfaces in red or tan with gold & black over-painting. A wonderful & mysterious book-object! If a "medieval" or elvish tome arrived from outer space it might approximate this; it would not match it. An interesting (if baffling) artist's book produced by an artist well-known for work of this type. Very fine.

The complete portfolio of eight brightly colored screen prints on thick, white paper (Museum Board), each measuring 30 in. x 29 ¾ in. Not bound. Numbered "24" on the justification page; each print is signed and dated in pencil by Wesley. In a cloth-covered folder with the title "Panoply" on the front panel, and still in its original shipping carton. All sheets and the portfolio are fine. Very scarce when complete. John Wesley is a contemporary American painter. Characterized by his uniquely graphic, flattened Pop paintings, Wesley s work addresses themes of sexuality and erotica through stylized and symmetrically composed images. Though his paintings are reminiscent of his contemporary Tom Wesselmann, his personal associations were with peers Dan Flavin and Donald Judd, and he was inspired by both the Minimalist and Surrealist movements. Approximate weight is 35 lbs. Postage will be extra on this item. Signed by Illustrator(s).
