    (MIDDEL, CRISTINA DE). Middel, Cristina de & Mao Tse Tung. PARTY (QUITONASTO FORM CHANMAIR MAO TUNGEST / QUOTATIONS FROM CHAIRMAN MAO TSETUNG) - SIGNED BY CHRISTINA DE MIDDEL. Signed by the Photographer. London, Barcelona & Mexico City: Archive of Modern Conflict, RM Verlag, S.L. & Editorial RM, 2013. First Edition 1/1715. 12mo. Gilt-Debossed Padded Boards. Artist's Book. As New./No Jacket - As Issued.. 312pp, profusely illustrated in color. Text in English. Designed by Jose Luis Lugo and Nova Era. Cristina de Middel's "Party" is a charming artist's book that takes the form of the ubiquitous sixties staple "Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung" - or as it was most commonly known here in the West, "The Little Red Book". The follow-up to the Spanish-born, London-based de Middel's highly received "The Afronauts", it removes most of Mao's didactic text leaving provocatively-altered phrases interspersed with hundreds of doubled-sided leaves reproducing her images of contemporary China. The resultant frisson between the original's altered texts and photographs of a new, Capitalist-embracing homeland would definitely not have found favor during the Cultural Revolution. A brand new, pristine example of 2013 first edition limited to one thousand, seven hundred and fifteen unnumbered copies additionally BOLDLY SIGNED "Christina De Middel" in black ink across the front free endpaper still in the publisher's unprinted clear plastic pouch. 84-15118-67-8 Inventory Number: 024106

    Breath of the Moon by John Urbancik

    UNREAD/ SIGNED/ Limited Edition. Excellent condition. Copy # 183 of 300 numbered hardcovers signed by John Urbancik on the illustrated limitation page. The Very Fine dust jacket is enclosed in a new protective archival cover. Great cover art by Alan M. Clark. Will be carefully packed in a box, not just a padded envelope, and mailed with delivery confirmation. We ship by the next business day. Synopsis: Teresa Grove lives in Central Florida, owns a bookstore, lives as normal a life as she can. She's special. She sees things the rest of us cannot. And she tries her best to pretend otherwise. But there are greater forces at work. Watching. Stalking. They seek love, they seek life, or they seek death, and after the Moon shifts her shade, they suspect Teresa will be able to give them what they want. Whether she likes it or not. The Moon is special, but the Moon is at war. And she is weakest when she becomes someone else. She's about to become Teresa Grove (or vice versa). Teresa stands to inherit the Moon's strengths and weaknesses, and also her enemies. She'll also have an uncontrollable power in the form of a kiss: to deliver either life or death. But it's not for her to decide which. It's the Breath of the Moon.



    EVERYBODY I EVER MET IN L.A. by Hollingsworth, Jonathan

    Santa Fe, NM: Just One Guy Press, 2008. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Santa Fe, NM: Just One Guy Press, 2008. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 64 pages. The artist/photographer's second collection. One of the most beautiful photography books of the decade. Deluxe Edition of 20 numbered and signed copies. Precedes and should not be confused with the Limited Edition. A brilliant production by Jonathan Hollingsworth: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial aquamarine cloth boards with photographic reproduction pasted on the recessed center and titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and text by Jonathan Hollingsworth. Original 3.5 X 4.5 inch color print mounted, encased in its own folio, and laid into the box. Bright yellow cloth clamshell box. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in its Deluxe Edition format, Jonathan Hollingsworth's "Everybody I Ever Met In LA". Collection of portrait-cum-text photographs of everybody he ever met in Los Angeles in the most collectible edition possible. The rogues' gallery of memorable people are all here, committed to posterity by Hollingsworth in a singular way: Each of the portraits is of Hollingsworth as his subject, a brilliant inversion of Cindy Sherman's by-now-familiar approach. In all of Sherman's transformative portraits, we never ever forget that we are looking at Cindy Sherman, the artist "expressing" herself. In all of Hollingsworth's portraits, he has so thoroughly immersed himself in his subjects' lifestyles, wardrobe, furniture, and other pertinent personal details that we do forget we are looking at him in various guises. Sherman re-defined the photographic portrait by making us keenly aware that every such portrait is ultimately a self-portrait. Hollingsworth beautifully builds on that insight by aiming for and largely succeeding at a Zelig-like effect: The Self-As-Others. Everybody he ever met in LA is a hysterically unforgettable subject because Hollingsworth was determined to capture them as faithfully as possible. Using himself to do so makes his attempt both poignant and witty, tender and funny. An absolute "must-have" edition for Jonathan Hollingsworth collectors. <b><i> This copy is one of the Deluxe Edition, indicated/numbered as such ("Number 1") on the Front Limitation Page, and is very prominently and beautifully numbered, signed, and dated (in the year of publication) in metallic-silver pen-marker by the photographer: "Jonathan Hollingsworth 1/20 2008". It comes with an original 3.5 X 4.5 inch color print variant of the cover image, also very prominently and beautifully numbered, titled, signed, and dated in black pen on verso: "Jonathan Hollingsworth 2008 'Like, totally' 1/20". It is the first of two print choices, both of them sublime, of the Deluxe Edition. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Deluxe Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 45 color plates, 1 original color print. One of the most brilliant American artist/photographers of our time. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO LIMITED EDITION OF THIS AND OTHER JONATHAN HOLLINGSWORTH TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0615239226.

[third wife Mary Hoover 1937]. Wife Mary signed with artistic initials "C.A." for [4] him in 1978. Robert Mackechnie [Bobby had passed away] and Margaret Mackechnie [nee Barnard] English painter friends of Conrad Aiken. Until the second world war Aiken lived in the Rye district, firstly at Lookout Cottage in Winchelsea, opposite the muddy creek from where the Mackechnie's lived on the Rye side, by February 1924 he had bought Jeake's House in Rye. By the way, Margaret Barnard's sister Alison Mary Barnard was a formidable Lady and networker. She lived at No. 4, Wimpole Mews, London and 'ran' The Centre of Spiritual and Psychological Studies. Here many Peace seeking authors, artists of very different plumage came together including Walter de la Mare, T. S. Eliot, Kathleen Raine, G. K. Chesterton [early on], Laurens van der Post and many more. No doubt Conrad Aiken too, who was a lifelong friend of T. S. Eliot, no outward publicity, quite the opposite of the extrovert Bloomsbury Bohemian hack hub.
