Mark Twain's book of animals by Mark Twain( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Longtime admirers of Mark Twain are aware of how integral animals were to his work as a writer, starting with the first stories to bring him national acclaim and continuing through his final years, with many of these pieces left unpublished at his death. This beautiful volume, illustrated with 30 new images by master engraver Barry Moser, gathers writings from the full span of Mark Twain's career and elucidates his special attachment to and regard for animals. What may surprise even longtime readers and fans is that Twain was an early and ardent animal welfare advocate, the most prominent American of his day to take up that cause. Edited and selected by Shelley Fisher Fishkin, who has also supplied an introduction and afterword, Mark Twain's Book of Animals includes stories that are familiar along with those that are appearing in print for the first time. We encounter Twain at his silliest, his most philosophical, his most sardonic, and his most sentimental. Texts are dark as well as playful, repellent as well as appealing-as full of variety, complexity, surprise, and delight as the author himself-and bring into sharp relief a rarely observed aspect of Twain's work

Towards a reform of the paper currency : particularly in point of its design by W. A Dwiggins( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great American type and book designer W.A. Dwiggins never much liked our currency and harbored particular disdain for the US Printing Office, which he considered little better than a hack service operation that showed little evidence of taste or graphic sensibility. All through the twenties, this prejudice festered until in 1932, at the very depth of the Great Depression, he convinced George Macy, the founder and primum mobile of the Limited Editions Club, to print a little manifesto he had put together on how everything from the paper money to the design of stamps in this country could be improved. Macy reluctantly agreed, on the condition that he would print only as many copies as their customers might order. The count came in at 522, and the legendary critique was issued. Michael Russem at the Kat Ran Press has issued this classic of graphic revisionism, incorporating all the material included in Dwiggins' original as well as a new Introduction by Bruce Kennett, facsimiles of the American paper currency in 1928 which he found so objectionable, and reproductions of the period stamps he so disliked. The currency is still as lousy as ever, although the stamps have shown a marked improvement. And Dwiggins' text, articulate, opinionated, convincing, reads as well today as it did 73 years ago.--Publisher
A Kat Ran checklist : limited editions designed, printed and/or published between 1994 and mid-2012 by Michael Russem( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Kat Ran Checklist. Kat Ran Press was founded in 1994 by Katherine and Michael Russem with the goal of combining classical typography and contemporary art with the old ideals of fine printing. The Press had a pretty good run over the next eighteen years, printing everything from modest pamphlets to portfolios which have fetched as much as $1 million at auction. With the closing of the letterpress plant in Florence earlier in 2012, the staff of the Cambridge Offices decided to put together a 60-page illustrated checklist of the over eighty limited editions designed, printed, and/or published at Kat Ran. Included is everything from the student books of the Russems to the last books they printed for The Lone Oak Press and Sherwin Beach Press. All books are described with just the right amount of detail for the casual reader, and most descriptions are followed by additional commentary by the printer. This major checklist of the works by a minor press is a must-have for any collector, printer, student, or library concerned with fine printing between 1994 and the middle of 2012."--katranpress.com viewed on 4.24.2013
