         Summer Nights, Walking: Along The Colorado Front Range 1976-1982

      New York City, NY: Aperture Foundation/Yale University Art Gallery(2009). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 84 pages. New And Expanded Edition of the photographer's classic. One of the most beautiful photography books of our time. Limited Slipcased Edition of 150 numbered and signed copies. Should not be confused with the regular trade edition that was published simultaneously with it. The Limited Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Robert Adams, Katy Homans, and Joshua Chuang: Regular-sized volume format. Black cloth boards with gray metallic-silver titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Robert Adams. Poems by William Blake and Emily Dickinson. Matching black cloth slipcase. Printed in tritone on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Re-presents, in its most collectible Limited Edition format, Robert Adams' "Summer Nights, Walking". One word: Masterpiece. First published in 1985 by Aperture, this definitive new sequence incorporates 39 previously unpublished images. "Robert Adams revisits the classic collection of nocturnal landscapes that he began making in the mid-1970's near his former home in Longmont, Colorado. Illuminated by moonlight and streetlamp, the houses, roads, sidewalks, and fields retain the wonder and stillness of the original edition while adopting the artist's intention of a dreamy fluidity, befitting his nighttime perambulations" (Publisher's blurb). Identified with harsh images of the detritus of modern life, Robert Adams shows in "Summer Nights, Walking" that he has always had a Romantic, even Blakean/mystical relation to both natural landscape and man-made place. Adams is now widely regarded as the greatest American landscape photographer since Ansel Adams, with whom he shares the same surname, and nothing else. Indeed, Robert Adams is the prototypical anti-Ansel Adams photographer, that is, a photographer who rejects what he perceives to be false majesty and grandeur. The images in "Summer Nights, Walking" are moving and eloquent in a serene, hushed, and quiet way. "Along with the incredible printing and understated cover, Adams has added some tougher pictures to the mix. Breathtaking" (Alec Soth). An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Adams collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in black ink-pen by Robert Adams. This title is a great photography book. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Limited Slipcased Edition available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: It should NOT be confused with the regular trade edition, which was issued simultaneously with it. A rare signed copy thus. 70 tritone plates. Robert Adams' "What We Bought: The New West" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest American photographers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERT ADAMS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1597111295.

         Carnival.

      Vancouver, British Columbia: Heavenly Monkey , 2009. Vancouver, British Columbia:: Heavenly Monkey ,, 2009.. Edition of 10. Square 4to; 7 sheets. Text set in Perpetua. Text and etchings printed on B. G. Penshurst paper. Issued in a printed paper chemise and slipcase with etching inlaid to front board. Rollin Milroy: "After we made photo-etchings of four pencil drawings for the deluxe copies of 'Colorful Fortune', Peter Braune, who had printed the plates, suggested we get Harold to work directly on copper with a needle. The intricate and fine lines that characterize his arabesques made engraving an ideal medium, and Harold was game to try. These five etchings, each named for a Renaissance composer, are his first original prints. Each plate was printed by Peter at New Leaf Editions, in editions of 15; the first ten were collected into suites, and the remainder were sold individually. Harold signed and titled the prints while he was in Seattle for a performance in conjunction with the release of 'Colorful Fortune'.

         Ray K. Metzker: Automagic: The Limited Edition

      Berlin, Germany: Only Photography(2009). First Edition / First Printing. As New in As New Dust Jacket. 120 pages. Retrospective collection of photographs. One of the most beautiful art photography books of our time. Limited Edition of 500 numbered and signed copies. Published as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. The Limited Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Roland Angst: Oversize-volume format. Purple cloth boards with gray titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Ray K. Metzker. Preface by Roland Angst in the German original and felicitous English trasnlation. Essay by David Travis in the English original and German translation. Biography and List of Plates (with matching thumbnail reproductions) appended at the end. Printed in tritone by Medialis Offsetdruck GmbH Berlin on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is outstanding in every respect. In pristine-white DJ, with a sleek, semi-abstract automobile silhouette-design embossed on the cover, and black titles printed on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents, in a collectible Limited Edition format, Ray K. Metzker's "AutoMagic". For our money, the single most beautifully produced book on the austere and elegant photographic art of Ray K. Metzker, devoted exclusively to the number-one American obsession, the car. Which, as J. G. Ballard (in his great novel, "Crash") once pointed out, is both the dangerous substitute and the perfect venue for sex. In hindsight, the car is also the ideal subject for Metzker's Modernist, "chiaroscuro" aesthetics and brilliant eye (the automobile appears in almost all of his books, notably "City Stills" and "Light Lines"). Rigorous and tightly focussed, "AutoMagic" showcases the enigmatic beauty, formal elegance, and quiet desperation that are Metzker trademarks. A unique cumulative visual experience, each image in this book nevertheless speaks for itself. "For me, to photograph is to wander with camera in hand, looking at everything along the way. What ultimately gives meaning and satisfaction to this act is discovering something I had not known, seen, or felt before" (Ray K. Metzker). An absolute "must-have" title for Ray K. Metzker collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen-marker by Ray K. Metzker. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great photography 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: There is a Deluxe Edition (with print), available exclusively from the publisher for about $5000, rightly so. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. 79 tritone plates. One of the greatest photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. . ISBN 398125371X.

The book's shrinkwrap (removed from the book to preserve condition and to be sure the book was signed by the author) with its publisher label stating what the book is and its price, and the original publisher's box the book was shipped in, are included. Since the U.S. signed limited edition did not come from the publisher with a case, a custom slipcase addressing the problems inherent in such a thick book was built and now houses the book safely. This slipcase contains an ivory satin-covered lower page edges support block and full satin interior with a thumb-hole in the enclosed back end to prevent vacuum lock. The original book shrinkwrap with its publisher's label has been folded into an archival glassine envelope and it and the still shrinkwrapped box of cards are now housed in a separate small compartment of their own at the top of the slipcase.

Byatt and Edward FitzGerald. Quatrains set in 24-point Caslon, Gilded top edge, ribbon marker. 220 pages. Book size: 13" x 9¾". Presented in a cloth-bound solander box. A collector's edition celebrating the 150th anniversary of its publication. Limited to 1,000 copies. The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám holds a unique place in English literature. A sensation of the Victorian age, it remains, a century and a half after publication, one of the best-loved poems in the language. With its exotic themes and its blend of melancholy and romance, it has seduced readers and inspired artists. Now The Folio Society celebrates the poem's 150th anniversary with this magnificent collector's edition, illustrated by Niroot Puttapipat. The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám was born of the encounter of two minds across seven centuries, when the reclusive scholar Edward FitzGerald translated a set of rubáiyái or quatrains attributed to the 12th-century Persian poet, Omar Khayyám. Each quatrain is a meditation on the fleeting nature of life. Man is compared, variously, to a bubble poured out with wine, a piece on a chess board, or a clay pot created by a careless maker. Filled with the lush opulence and romance of the East, the Rubáiyát advocated the pleasures of earthly life – wine, love, song – over the uncertain promise of heaven. Published anonymously, the Rubáiyát at first languished on a penny bookstall, before it was discovered by Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris and the rest of the Pre- Raphaelite circle. It became a poetic phenomenon on both sides of the Atlantic, with devotees including Mark Twain and Arthur Conan Doyle, and Omar Khayyám clubs flourished throughout Britain and America. The poem's growing fame coincided with new developments in colour printing, and it proved a source of great inspiration to artists, illustrators and publishers – the most expensive book binding ever created (over 1,000 precious stones were set into the leather) was for a single-volume edition of the Rubáiyát. The reclusive FitzGerald, who rarely left his native Suffolk, would have been astonished at the impact of his poem on such a range of readers, writers and artists, an impact that is still felt today. This limited edition has been exquisitely illustrated by Niroot Puttapipat, one of the most gifted young illustrators working today. His affinity with the late Victorian period and his lyrical, almost dreamlike style make him the perfect artist for the Rubáiyát. The images he has created are beautifully detailed, rich in texture, capturing the opulence of the poem, filled with the rich lapis blue and gold decoration that is such a feature of Eastern art.

         Hong Kong Inside Outside [Englisch] [Gebundene Ausgabe] Michael Wolf (Autor), Natasha Egan (Nachwort), Dr. Ernest Chui (Nachwort), Lee Ho Yin (Nachwort), Lynne DiStefano (Nachwort)

      peperoni books, 2009. Über 14 Jahre lebt der deutsche Fotograf Michael Wolf nun in Hong Kong. Er konzentriert sich auf spezifische visuelle Elemente und hält das Leben in den engen Ballungsräumen in einer der am dichtest bevölkerten Städten der Welt fest, wie es bisher niemand getan hat. HONG KONG INSIDE OUTSIDE kombiniert zwei Hauptserien seiner Arbeit: Architecture of Density und 100 x 100. Für Architecture of Density hat Wolf einen markanten Stil kreiert. Er nimmt jeglichen Himmel oder Horizont aus dem Rahmen und flacht den Raum soweit ab bis er zu einer unnachgiebigen Abstraktion der urbanen Ausweitung wird, ohne Entkommen für das Auge des Betrachters. Um die sozialen Auswirkungen dieses Lebens in solch engen Bedingungen zu erforschen, stellt Wolf der Anonymität der Außenseite der Wohnkomplexe in Architecture of Density nun seine Serie 100 x 100 gegenüber. Diese zeigt in Innenaufnahmen Portraits von 100 Individuen und Familien, die, umgeben von all ihren Habseligkeiten, in ca. 10 Quadratmeter großen Sozialwohnungen leben. Das Interesse des deutschen Fotografen Michael Wolf konzentriert sich auf das Leben in Mega-Cities und die Dokumentation von Architektur, Lebensformen und originären Kulturen der Metropolen. Wolf ist in Kanada, Europa und in den USA aufgewachsen. Er studierte in Berkeley und an der Folkwang Schule bei Otto Steinert in Essen. 1994 ging er nach Hongkong und arbeitete dort 8 Jahre als Vertragsfotograf für das Magazin »Stern«. Danach zog er sich von der Pressefotografie zurück um seine eigenen Projekte zu verfolgen. Seine Arbeiten werden weltweit in Galerien und Museen gezeigt und wurden in zahlreichen internationalen Magazinen und Fotobüchern veröffentlicht.

         El Muro: The Wall (First Edition, one of 50 copies)

      Florence, MA: Red Trillium Press / Aqui en la lucha, 2009. First Edition. First Edition. One of a deluxe edition limited to 50 copies (this being No. 15) signed by the photographer Eduardo Hernandez Santos, with two signed original prints all housed in a gray clamshell case. A photographic exploration of one of Havana's hidden communities. Interweaving stark photography with excerpts from Virgilio Pinera, Santos shows us the vulnerable world of these night creatures, the young gay men, transsexuals and transvestites who gather at the wall. "The seafront wall is a corporal image of the city and of the nation itself, a space of cultural alternatives and negotiations. In daylight, it is the postcard of poems, movies and tourist souvenirs. In the hours preceding dawn, it becomes the Havana of the others; the city turns against itself in nights of sea salt, rum, and troubadours. Havana becomes a transvestite garmented in mortar walls showcasing outlandish, assorted events: queens of the night, street vendors, toughs, male prostitutes, and pimps who have raised themselves up to the status of signifiers of the change in this concrete wall... 'El muro' is like a palimpsest, an overlapping of noctambulist bodies, of marginal and marginalized identities bearing textual and poetic marks." Spiral bound wrappers in a gray-and-black cloth slipcase. Fine.
