         Gary Schneider: "john In Sixteen Parts": Limited-edition Print

      New York City, NY: Gary Schneider Studios(1996). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 1 pages. Rare Gary Schneider collectible art. A pristine Limited-Edition print of one of the most iconic images from his celebrated sequence, "John In Sixteen Parts", titled, numbered, dated, and signed by Gary Schneider. There is no ISBN. The print is now rare. A brilliant production by Gary Schneider: Regular-sized print format. Measures 8 X 10 inches. In the artist's protective plastic sleeve. Eminently suitable for framing. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Gary Schneider's "John In Sixteen Parts, Part #3". The extreme close-up of the model John Erdman's right eye. From the complete sequence of images that show his various body parts (of his face), lovingly, probingly, and "scientifically" photographed by Gary Schneider (Erdman is the artist/photographer's longtime companion). Both the concept and its realization are brilliant, resulting in imagery that is strikingly original, "Conceptual" photography that is imagined rather than conceived, the work of an artist/photographer who has somehow given us a rare glimpse into the human soul, in all its beauty, pain, and "materiality", through photographs of the human body. The complete sequence was published as the eponymous Artist Book in 1997. An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item/artwork for Gary Schneider collectors. This Limited-Edition print is one of 20 copies, indicated/numbered as such on recto, and it is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully titled, dated, and signed in pencil by the artist/photographer: "John In Sixteen Parts 1996 Part #3 4/20 Gary Schneider". This title is a great photographic print. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online, is in the artist's protective plastic sleeve, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Gary Schneider prints command thousands of dollars from his galleries, at art fairs, and at auction. His work is slowly but surely destined for canonical recognition. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed print thus. 1 original photographic print. One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A flawless collectible print.

         Submarine Dream. Lithographs and Letters. Edited by Brian Webb with an Introduction by Peyton Skipwith.

      First edition. An edition of 375 copies. This is 43/75 copies signed by Professor Eileen Hogan of Camberwell College of Arts with a folder of ten prints. Dark green leather spine. Boards reproducing a marbled paper designed by Tirzah Ravilious during the 1930s which is again used on the linen-covered portfolio and the menu which is loosely inserted. Stochastic screening was used for the lithographed reproductions. A fine copy.Eric Ravilious was appointed a War Artist in February 1940. In August that year he moved to HMS Dolphin, the submarine base in Gosport, Hampshire. He produced two series of five lithographs, the first set predominantly blue/yellow and the second blue/brown. No publisher in wartime was prepared to print them in book form and they were sold as extremely limited prints. This is the first publication as a book and this copy has the additional advantage of the full set of prints as individual duplicates. The menu included is for the Double Crown Club Dinner 342 on Tuesday 14th October 1997 at The Arts Club in Dover Street, London at which Brian Webb spoke about the publication of the book. Scarce.

         Brockhaus. Die Enzyklopädie in 24 Bänden. Pflichtfortsetzung Band 1-24 (Gebundene Ausgabe) Brockhaus. Die Enzyklopädie in 24 Bänden. Pflichtfortsetzung Band 1-24 [Gebundene Ausgabe] von Wissenmedia Brockhaus Enzyklopädie, 20., neubearb. Aufl., 24 Bde. Zus. ca. 260000 Stichwörter auf 17000 S., über 35000 Abb., Ktn u. Tab., durchg. farb.

      wissenmedia, 1996. Seit Generationen steht der Name Brockhaus für akribisch zusammengetragenes, sorgfältig aufbereitetes Wissen, das selbstverständlich immer auf dem neuesten Stand ist. Die 20. Auflage berücksichtigt deshalb die aktuellen Entwicklungen, die sich seit 1986 in allen Lebensbereichen vollzogen haben. Dabei wurden aber nicht nur einzelne Stichwörter ergänzt, sondern auch viele neue aufgenommen. Das gilt natürlich auch für die im Frühjahr 1998 erscheinenden Bände 14 bis 18 mit so interessanten Stichwörtern wie Molekulardesign, nichteheliche Kinder oder Postreform. Dazu kommen viele neu aufgenommene oder völlig überarbeitete Länderartikel, wie zum Beispiel über Russland oder Makedonien, die nun eigenständige Staaten sind und einschneidende Veränderungen durchgemacht haben. Eine Besonderheit der 'Brockhaus Enzyklopädie' sind die Schlüsselbegriffe. Über alle 24 Bände verteilt findet man in diesen Artikeln umfassende Darstellungen zu etwa 200 zentralen Themen unserer Zeit.Schlüsselbegriffe der neuen Bände sind zum Beispiel Migration, multinationale Unternehmen, öffentliche Schulden oder die olympische Idee. Zur besseren Anschaulichkeit tragen die über 35 000 durchgehenden farbigen Abbildungen bei. Eine besonders gut lesbare Schrift, optische Hervorhebungen und eine übersichtliche Gliederung machen die 'Brockhaus Enzyklopädie' äußerst benutzerfreundlich. Es wird nicht nicht nur auf aktuelle Informationen Wert gelegt, sondern auch auf die Verarbeitung und das Material. Kopfgoldschnitt und säurebeständiges Papier leisten negativen Umwelteinflüssen Widerstand. Der Einband aus Leder und Buckramleinen sowie die 23-karätige Goldprägung der Lederrückenschilder schaffen den passenden Rahmen für das Wissen der Welt.

        Waterfall Rapture: Postcards Of Falling Water, My Addiction, My Collection, My Edition

      Tokyo, Japan: Shinchosha Company Publishers(1996). First Edition / First Printing. As New in As New Dust Jacket. 288 pages. Artist Book. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Tadanori Yokoo: Oversize-volume format. Red hard boards with black titles on spine, as issued. Postcards collected, photographed, and assembled by Tadanori Yokoo. Essay by Hiroshi Aramata appended at the end. Oversize blue obi-band intact and wrapped around the book. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Tokyo, Japan to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with colorful titles and design on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Tadanori Yokoo's "Waterfall Rapture". The single greatest Artist Book on what collecting really means. The art of the postcard and its intimate relation to photography, graphic design, and collecting are evoked by Yokoo's single-minded obsession, religious zeal, and spiritual devotion: "Waterfall Rapture" utilizes the "multiplier effect" to celebrate and capture in book form the rapturous experience called collecting. Every postcard is a reproduction of a photograph (particularly the photograph of a painting or work of art). Each of the postcards in his massive collection was re-photographed by Yokoo to create his book. These photographs appear as miniature reproductions in the book, that is, as photographs of photographs of photographs of photographs. The exhilarating result is a book that is one-of-a-kind, which is every collector's dream object, and the postcard, photography, graphic design, and collecting finally come full circle: My addiction, my collection, my edition. Why does a human being become a collector? According to Susan Sontag (in "On Photography"), this "pathos of avidity" (in her brilliant phrase) is our uniquely modern way of understanding, and thereby gaining control of, the world. According to Tadanori Yokoo, it is because: "A collection is deviation from the system. A collection is the unification of life and art. A collection is the discipline of intuition. A collection transforms quantity into quality" (Tadanori Yokoo). An absolute "must-have" title for Tadanori Yokoo collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed (in Japanese kanji characters) in black pen-marker by Tadanori Yokoo. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great Artist Book. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The oversize blue obi-band, often missing in many copies, is intact. A rare signed copy thus. 13000 color plates. Tadanori Yokoo's "Waterfall Rapture" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". The greatest graphic designer of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER TADANORI YOKOO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 4104110019.
