Reading Dick and Jane With Me by Clarissa T Sligh( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reading Dick & Jane with Me (1989) is an artist's book created to interrupt the authority of old elementary school textbooks called The Dick and Jane Readers. These reading textbooks of the 1940's and 50's represented a white upper middle class suburban family as normal life for most Americans. Although statistically the average American at this time was working class, the artist as a young girl thought these depictions meant that her family must be an aberration outside the norm. In Reading Dick and Jane with Me, children from Clarissa's old neighborhood stand in for the young people who could never talk back at that time."--Vamp & Tramp

My mother's book by Joan Lyons( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Only a few family stories survived, along with fewer pictures. The voice is my mother's, although this book begins with my grandmother's dream and ends with mine. I have allowed myself to make such a personal book because the words and images are so typical of her immigrant generation. The structure of the book is a double pamphlet. I felt that different openings revealing random combinations of texts and images resembled the structure of memories more closely than a linear reading would."
Time after time : the photographs of Alice Wells : a Visual Studies Workshop traveling exhibition by Alice Wells( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The gynecologist by Joan Lyons( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fanciful historic gynecological representations of women are juxtaposed with a contemporary patient / doctor interview, which reveals the authority a traditionally male medical culture holds in describing and prescribing for an individual body; in this case female. Aspects of the text will be familiar to most women. This book was based on several years of research and was in danger of becoming a ponderous document before I edited it down to what I know best--an artist's book. It echos the structure of historical printed books, with its small text block and illuminated margins."

Convergence, 8 photographers : Albert Chong, Todd Gray, Jeffrey Scales, Coreen Simpson, Clarissa Sligh, Elisabeth Sunday, Christian Walker, Wendel White( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Photographic Resource Center invited Deborah Willis, curator of photographs and prints at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black culture, to guest curate an exhibition of contemporary photographic imagery by African-American artists. The motives were straightforward: 1. the PRC's exhibitions program, initiated in 1985, under-represented black artists even though our record for inclusion of women and other artists of color ranged from excellent to respectable; 2. ... We knew that excellent work was being done by young African-American photographers, but we were not locating these individuals easily."--Anita Douthat, PRC curator, page 3

Civil defense by Philip Zimmermann( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"About the paranoia of an advancing radioactive cloud approaching an inhabited area (the Hudson Valley where I lived) and the uselessness of trying to escape the radioactivity. I used a mehanical device of disintegrating and steadily enlarging halftone dots and patterns to show the increasing radioactivity. By the end the page images have become almost atomistic and unreadable because the scale of the dot components making up the image is so large. Tiny little boy scout icons futily signal SOS."--Http://spaceheat.com/books/civil-defense (accessed October 7, 2014)
