Harry Potter's wizarding adventures have had an unrivalled impact on popular culture today; indeed, some have referred to adults between the ages of roughly 20-30 years old as 'the Harry Potter generation'. Harry Potter is a series of many genres, including fantasy, bildungsroman, and the British school story (which includes elements of mystery, thriller, adventure, and romance). According to Rowling, the main theme of the books is death - although prejudice, corruption, and madness can be seen as dominant motifs.

         Life Is Paradise: The Portraits Of Francesco Clemente

      New York City, NY: PowerHouse Books(1999). First Edition / First Printing. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket. 189 pages. Artist Book. Retrospective collection of portrait-paintings. One of the most beautiful Artist Books of our time. Limited Slipcased Edition of 400 numbered and signed copies that sold out shortly after publication. Precedes and should not be confused with the regular trade edition. The Limited Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Francesco Clemente and Francesca Richer: Oversize-volume format. Red-orange cloth boards with titles on spine, as issued. Art by Francesco Clemente: Watercolor, oil, and dry media. Essay by Vincent Katz. 9 X 14 inch original lithograph ("Self-Portrait"), encased in its own glassine-and-rice paper sheet, laid-in. It is meant to be framed. Hard board pictorial slipcase with two reproductions, one on each side. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Italy to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ, which reproduces the portrait of his wife and muse, Alba Clemente, and titles on the spine, as issued. Published to coincide with the landmark retrospective exhibition held at the Guggenheim Museum New York in 1999, which travelled on to the new, Frank Gehry-designed Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in 2000. Presents, in its Limited Edition format, Francesco Clemente's "Life Is Paradise". Perhaps the single most sensuously beautiful of his Artist Books: A celebration of life as only this Italian aesthete-artist can pull it off. Life is beautiful in Clemente's masterly hands. Seven thematic sequences: "Poets", "Oil On Wood", "Great Expectations", "Children", "Devi", "New York Muses", and "Voices". They include a rich selection of celebrity portrait-paintings that are meticulously chosen, as though they belonged to the artist's personal pantheon of divinities (starting with Alba Clemente) : John Ashbery, Anne Bancroft, Robert Creeley, the late Allen Ginsberg (with whom Clemente collaborated on several major projects), Philip Glass, Fran Lebowitz, Toni Morrison, and Gwyneth Paltrow, to name a motley few. Still, it is the art itself, the rendition, that mesmerizes and enthralls. Some of Clemente's portraits are precise and delicate. Others are dark and fierce. The subject's eyes are always dominant, but each one is rendered differently: Mask-like in one portrait, empathetic and humane in another. Clemente's sheer range will leave the viewer thinking about the infinite number of ways to portray, not just present, a particular human face. "One can wallow for days on end in these faces" (Vincent Katz). An absolute "must-have" title for Francesco Clemente collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Slipcased Edition. It comes with a pristine 9 X 14 inch original lithograph ("Self-Portrait") that is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in pencil on recto by Francesco Clemente. The artwork comes in its own glassine-and-rice paper sheet, and is meant to be framed. This title is a great Artist Book. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Limited Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Clemente signed the artwork, NOT the book, as is his and the publisher's custom. Given an art market in which Clemente commands thousands of dollars, the artwork has been separated from the book in most cases because among art collectors (versus book collectors), it is much more valuable by itself. A rare signed copy thus. 100 plates, 1 original artwork. One of the greatest artists of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER FRANCESCO CLEMENTE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1576870537.

         Invisible Cities

      San Francisco: Arion Press, 1999. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Thiebaud, Wayne. Number 105 of 400 numbered copies for sale, square folio size, [164] pp., signed by the artist. "Italo Calvino, regarded by many as the greatest master of Italian fiction in this century, first published this work in 1972 as Le citta invisibili. A tale mixing fantasy, reality, and philosophy, it recounts a long conversation between a young Marco Polo and an aging Kublai Khan. The book was lauded by Gore Vidal as more than a novel, more like a "meditation or poem" and "perhaps his [Calvino's] most beautiful work". William Weaver, who translated it from the Italian into English, considers that among his translations, "it is the one I reread with the most pleasure"... The artist Wayne Thiebaud contributed 12 drawings, with the idea that the images of cities and objects remain invisible until the reader takes action. To realize this concept, Andrew Hoyem designed the book with the drawings printed on clear plastic in different colors of inks, each matching the color of the following sheet. The images are revealed only when the transparent sheet is turned back onto the preceding page, a white sheet with printed text."***DESCRIPTION:Bound in an anodized aluminum ring binding with U-posts, back cover supports four U-posts, lid has four slots through which the U-posts rise, and a locking pin of aluminum rod slips through the hoops securing lid to base, mylar endpapers, 12 illustrations, monotype and hand-set Veronese type, both colored and white Italian Tiziano mould-made Fabriano paper, folio 14" x 12", [164] pp., limited to 400 numered copies for sale, this being number 105 (26 lettered copies were printed for private distribution), signed by the illustrator.***CONDITION: The aluminum binding is very clean, with the only scuffs being on the removable locking pin where the U-posts rest, internally bright and crisp, a fine copy; like new.***CITATION: Arion Press Catalogue 57.***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details.***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.

      Arion Press, San Francisco 1999 - Number 105 of 400 numbered copies for sale, square folio size, [164] pp., signed by the artist. "Italo Calvino, regarded by many as the greatest master of Italian fiction in this century, first published this work in 1972 as Le citta invisibili. A tale mixing fantasy, reality, and philosophy, it recounts a long conversation between a young Marco Polo and an aging Kublai Khan. The book was lauded by Gore Vidal as more than a novel, more like a "meditation or poem" and "perhaps his [Calvino's] most beautiful work". William Weaver, who translated it from the Italian into English, considers that among his translations, "it is the one I reread with the most pleasure". The artist Wayne Thiebaud contributed 12 drawings, with the idea that the images of cities and objects remain invisible until the reader takes action. To realize this concept, Andrew Hoyem designed the book with the drawings printed on clear plastic in different colors of inks, each matching the color of the following sheet. The images are revealed only when the transparent sheet is turned back onto the preceding page, a white sheet with printed text." ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in an anodized aluminum ring binding with U-posts, back cover supports four U-posts, lid has four slots through which the U-posts rise, and a locking pin of aluminum rod slips through the hoops securing lid to base, mylar endpapers, 12 illustrations, monotype and hand-set Veronese type, both colored and white Italian Tiziano mould-made Fabriano paper, folio 14" x 12", [164] pp., limited to 400 numered copies for sale, this being number 105 (26 lettered copies were printed for private distribution), signed by the illustrator. ***CONDITION: The aluminum binding is very clean, with the only scuffs being on the removable locking pin where the U-posts rest, internally bright and crisp, a fine copy; like new. ***CITATION: Arion Press Catalogue 57. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.
