Description:
New York: Filmmakers Newsletter / Filmmakers' Cinematheque, 1971. Archive of 41 issues of "Filmmakers Newsletter," dating from the first four years of the magazine, including Vol. I, issue 1. Early issues of the magazine are scarce, and putting together a collection of this size piecemeal would be prohibitively difficult. Founded in 1967 by experimental filmmaker Carl Linder as "New York Filmmakers' Newsletter," it was originally published out of the Filmmakers Cinematheque, and served a similar purpose as Canyon Cinema's "Canyon Cinemanews," disseminating information on screenings, festivals, and republishing articles and essays about experimental film. Suni Mallow took over as editor in early 1968, and she quickly brought a wider focus to the magazine, dropping "New York" from the title and publishing the magazine under its own imprint (although it still retained ties to the Cinematheque). This broader approach to the world of avant garde film was successful, and when Mallow sold the magazine in… Read More

Description:
Paris: Editions de la Sirene, 1921. First Edition. First Edition. Includes three original illustrations: two are primarily typographic layouts, one centered around Charlie Chaplin (each is lacking the applied paste-up elements, in the case of the Chaplin image, it lacks the photographic image that was pasted on and that appears in the finished illustration), and the third and most interesting is the original drawing for the illustration that appears on page 85, of three men. An seminal text on cinema, a reflection on then-current films by Epstein, one of the earliest and most important French critics. But just as importantly, a spectacular example of deco era typography and design by Claude Delbanne, utilizing elements of film culture, variations on posters, popular film culture, and Russian Constructivist design. Saddle stapled two-color wrappers, with illustrations laid in. A single tiny chip, else Near Fine.

Founded in 1974 by its co-editors Chuck Kleinhans and John Hess, professors at Northwestern and San Francisco State University respectively, with the help of associate editors Judith Hess, Julia Lesage (University of Oregon) and William Van Wert (Temple University), "Jump Cut" was primarily a film journal focusing on contemporary cinema, consistently reviewing European art films such as "The Passenger" (1975) and "Jeanne Dielman" (1975) with a broader look at everything from "Rocky" (1976) to experimental films by women, film festivals, and the representation of homosexuality in film noir. The editors and contributors deliberately aligned themselves with the plight of the disenfranchised and oppressed-homosexuals, women, minorities, labor-critiquing the ways contemporary media reflects broader societal… Read More

Description:
London: Hansom Books, 1968. Original British magazine on contemporary international film. Front wrapper features Christopher Jones from the 1968 film "Wild in the Streets," directed by Barry Shear, rear wrapper features a full page ad for the film. "Films and Filming" was a highly regarded film magazine that frequently eschewed the usual box office fodder in favor cult and arthouse films, and in particular films with LGBTQ interest. First published in 1951 by Philip Dosse as a stablemate to his other magazines on the arts, Peter Brinson was brought on as the first editor, successfully editing the magazine to appeal to the gay market at a time when homosexuality was still a criminal offense in Britain. It was the magazine's second editor, Peter Baker, that helped make the magazine a must-read for the serious cinephile. Films, essays, and photospreads in this issue include "The Graduate," The Sexy Flying Machine that Burst from a Cloud by actor Michael J. Pollard, USA Confidential (new independent… Read More
