This is the elegant hardbound catalogue published in conjunction with a posthumous 2009 exhibition of twelve of Josef Albers' "Homage to The Square" paintings on masonite held at Mexico City's Casa Luis Barragan. "Josef Albers’s extensive series occupied him for more than twenty-five years. The artist, an early student (and later, a professor) of the Bauhaus was fascinated by the ability to create the illusion of three-dimensions using only color and spatial relationships.The works feature nested squares in different shades, which the artist often applied directly from the paint tube onto fiberboard. Albers had a long career as a professor at Black Mountain College before joining Yale University’s Art Department, where he began his iconic abstract series at age sixty-two. Over the coming decades, Albers would make more than one thousand oil paint and silkscreen "Homages" before his death at age eighty-eight in 1976." A brand new, most handsome example of this uncommon item limited to one thousand unnumbered copies in slipcase with the publisher's obi.. As New/No Jacket - As Issued.

Text in Spanish. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Editora Nacional Quimantú was a Chilean publishing house founded in 1971 by Salvador Allende's Unidad Popular government with the goal of offering various literary works and a view of Chilean culture not covered by the "official bourgeois tradition". The books published by Quimantú were sold at very low prices in bookshops and newspaper kiosks in order to effectively make culture more accessible for the country's working class. Emblematic of this inexpensive fare for the masses was Alfonso Alcalde's "Vivir O Morir", a rushed-to-the-presses photojournalistic account of the sensational 1972 discovery and rescue of the survivors of Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571. One of the twentieth century's most well-known air disasters, the plane crashed into a high elevation Chilean glacier, and despite intense rescue efforts, the craft and its remaining passengers were not found until seventy-two days afterwards. Of the fifty-seven people aboard, only sixteen survived both the impact and the inhospitable, snowbound mountains to be rescued; and in doing so, were forced to resort to eating the bodies of the deceased. Filled with photographs from the initial rescue, this sensational account of what became known as "The Miracle of the Andes" was the first book to tell the survivors' harrowing tale. A most presentable example of the exceedingly uncommon 1973 first printing showing some overall wear, rubbing, and slight age-toning to its newsprint pages along with an ink previous ownership inscription on the inside front cover.. Very Good -.

London, Motif Editions., 1970, First Edition. Printed Poster, Double Elephant Folio, One 30 x 20" paper sheet printed black and white offset, recto only, 1 b&w illustration. This is the iconic poster designed by the late, great British illustrator Alan Aldridge to promote the 1970 screening of "Chelsea Girls" at the Drury Lane Arts Laboratory. Filmed by Andy Warhol and Paul Morrissey from a treatment by Ronnie Tavel on location inside Manhattan's fabled Chelsea Hotel, the film received upon its 1966 release an X certificate from the British Board of Film Censors, meaning it was unable to be theatrically released in the UK. It took another three years before the full three and a half hour split-screen version of "Chelsea Girls" - featuring Factory Superstars Nico, Brigid Berlin, Ondine, Gerard Malanga, Eric Emerson, Mary Woronov, Mario Montez, Ingrid Superstar, and International Velvet - would receive a London premiere. A bright, most handsome vintage unrolled example of the 1970 Motif Editions London first comercially-produced version of the poster.. Near Fine.

ALLEN, JAMES, HILTON ALS, CONGRESSMAN JOHN LEWIS & LEON F. LITWACK. JAMES ALLEN, EDITOR
WITHOUT SANCTUARY: LYNCHING PHOTOGRAPHY IN AMERICA
Santa Fe, NM, Twin Palms Publishers., 2000, First Edition 1/4000. (ISBN: 0-944092-69-1) Cloth in Dust Jacket, 4to, 212pp, 98 color illustrations. Designed by Arlyn Nathan and Jack Woody. "The Tuskegee Institute records the lynching of 3,436 blacks between 1882 and 1950. This is probably a small percentage of these murders, which were seldom reported, and led to the creation of the NAACP in 1909, an organization dedicated to passing federal anti-lynching laws. Through all this terror and carnage someone - many times a professional photographer - carried a camera and took pictures of the events. These lynching photographs were often made into postcards and sold as souvenirs to the crowds in attendance. These images are some of photography's most brutal, surviving to this day so that we may now look back on the terrorism unleashed on America's African-American community and perhaps know our history and ourselves better. The almost one hundred images reproduced here are a testament to the camera's ability to make us remember what we often choose to forget." This is the extremely unsettling book containing texts by Hilton Als, Congressman John Lewis and Leon F. Litwack published to coincide with a 2000 circulating exhibition of examples from James Allen's collection of harrowing vintage photographic scenes of American lynchings. A brand new, most handsome example of the uncommon 2000 Twin Palms first printing.. Fine/Fine.

New York, Nyehaus Gallery and the Monacelli Press., 2013, First Edition. (ISBN: 1-58093-386-6) Illustrated Boards, Oblong 4to, 224pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Designed by Kyle Lamar. With a biography, exhibition history and collections listing. Published to coincide with a 2014 retrospective at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, "The Astonishing Works of John Altoon" surveys the colorful paintings and virtuosic drawings of this larger-than-life personality exhibited at New York's Nyehaus in 2013. Altoon's art is intimate, haunting, and erotic - capturing a magical moment in California art between the Beat Generation and the sexual and psychedelic revolutions. The work is put in context through essays and remembrances from those who knew him best: the poet Robert Creeley; psychiatrist and fan Dr. Milton Wexler; pioneering West Coast curator Walter Hopps; and curator, gallerist, and critic Klaus Kertess. This lavishly produced original collection also features a juxtaposition of Altoon's lithographs with a selection of Creeley's poems that the longtime friends originally published as "About Women" in 1965, a facsimile of his Ed Kienholz-published memorial exhibition catalog, and posthumously addressed letters from friends. A brand new, pristine example of this exquisite document.
