Kimono/kosode : a decorative study of the kimono by Carol Schwartzott( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like the unwrapping of a graceful garment's may layers KIMONO KOSODE invites you to explore. A simple repeated design - the smooth, matte surface of each section - beckons one to touch it; a cut-out kimono reveals a hint of what lies underneath. Unfolding the pages once, and again, displays the many panels of color. Kimono/Kosode has a piano-hinge construction of six rigid sections, each forming one trifold page. The book lies flat, but when displayed on edge with the pages flipped open, a tiny multi-dimensional theater appears and the kimono becomes a window. Each trifold section also contains an attached text, giving a brief descriptive hsitory of the kimono. These pages are printed letterpress on hand-dyed Japanese Yohko paper, floating, thin and gossamer, against the matboard surface."
Simon Brett : an engraver's progress : a selection of engravings by Simon Brett( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'An Engraver's Progress' [contains] 134 engravings ... There are several tipped double spreads of larger images ... Simon Brett has written a fascinating autobiographic introduction to his work, there is a Publisher's Foreword ... the book includes a catalogue raisonné of major exhibitions, a checklist of books illustrated by the artist, and a list of his publications as author and editor. It also includes a complete chronological listing of all Simon's engravings from 1961 to the present. The two last engravings on the list are the pattern block for the cover paper of this book, and its frontispiece, both specially commissioned. We believe 'Endgrain Editions 4: Simon Brett--an Engraver's Progress' will become the primary reference for the first fifty years of Simon's work"--Barbarian Press website, July 13, 2016

The nonconformist's memorial : poems by Susan Howe( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sequences fall into two sections, "Turning" and "Conversion," in half-ironic nonconforming counterpoint to Eliot's Four Quartets. Her collaging and mirror-imaging of words are concretions of verbal static, visual meditations on what can and cannot be said. For Howe, "Melville's Marginalia" is the essential poem in the collection, an approach to an elusive and allusive mind through Melville's own reading and the notations in his library books. This, says Howe, is "Language a wood for thought."

Still by Jenna Rodriguez( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Still' memorializes roadkill I encountered in the Finger Lakes of Upstate New York. Moving from Chicago, IL to Aurora, NY I was overwhelmed with my daily encounter of roadkill. The book transforms into a creative non-fiction narrative allowing me to connect with my environment. The deceased animals were found on my daily commute and treated with respect. The cover is handmade paper to resemble asphalt. The book proceeds with an image of crows around an animal to represent the flight of their soul. Following is a pullout map indicating where animals were found. Animals are letterpress printed in two colors with linoleum blocks and polymer plates. A veterinarian allowed me to take x-rays, which are printed on transparent paper with vertical text stating statistics about roadkill. Each animal has an obituary that states factual and humorous information with a pullout photograph showing the crime scene and the longitude and latitude. At the end of the project a private ceremony was held where the animals were buried on an island to pay respect and give thanks"--Artist's website, January 19, 2017

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A speech given by Barth in celebration of the shelving of the 200,000th volume in Washington College's Clifton Miller Library. Browsing is a book for true book-lovers, a delight for the mind as well as the eye, with specially commissioned woodcut illustrations by Chestertown artist Mary Rhinelander. In this extended essay combining humor, erudition and intellectual exuberancy, Barth visits such topics as the hazards of reading on the beach; the Library of Pergamum and Borges' infinite Library of Babel; hypertexts and the Pandemonium Model of Utterance; and the challenges of deciphering another's marginalia
