[BKARTS] Just published - Joshua Heller Rare Books Catalogue 36



Here is the cool book news from a hot and humid Washington, DC:

Our just completed Summer 2008 Catalogue brings together a wealth of great
creativity. Over fifty artists, printers, photographers and fine binders
have given of their talents, ranging from Susan Allix’s (now approaching
her fiftieth artist’s book) new ‘Travel’ book Colours of Persia (#1) to
Larry Rivers monumental pop-up Diana with Poem (#72).


The catalogue is illustrated with over two hundred color images showcasing
close to one hundred and twenty-eight books.

Two notable poets have collaborated with the highly gifted Ilse Schreiber
Noll. Galway Kinnell has written a moving poem about Love at the end of a
Lifetime in Promissory Note (#77) and Dennis Brutus renders an update on
the city of Camden in For Camden (#78).


A special section – a tribute – is devoted to the work of the highly talented
team of Jadwiga Jarvis and Mike Hudson. Their publications, under the imprint
of The Wayzgoose Press (#116- #127), bear testimony to their creative spirit
spanning over two decades.


Two further surveys are worth noting: that of Shirley Sharoff (#83- #91) – an
American working in Paris, and John Ross (#38-#46) - over 80 years old - he
has published twenty artist’s books since he turned 70!
