Happy New Year! In the spirit of 'out with the old, in for the new', we are having our first ever sale! 20% off everything in this very long list...40% if you buy 10 or more books. This list is [very] long, spanning fine press to zines, prints to artist books, miniatures to coffee table books, film press kits to bound journals. We hope the 'cost' of the very long list is offset by some very good deals. Enjoy!
Offer good through the end of Feb. 2020.
This includes nearly all that will be in our booth (318) at the 2019 Boston ABAA Book Fair...not counting a handful of last minute surprises/additions. While there are no photos in this 'clean list', we will be posting images via social media and a booth tour at our youtube channel. Enjoy.
Lux Mentis supports and advocates for artists’ books made by women from Mexico, Latin America, and Spain. We strongly encourage both collectors and institutions to recognize the established history of book art in Spanish/Portuguese speaking countries and continue to support emerging artists from these countries, as well as all women of color working, living, and creating book arts in the United States.
A short list of current medical holdings...heavy on neurology.
Death, not as in dying, but death as an industry. This week we feature 12 items illustrating aspects of the funerary and mortuary industry and the science of death, including an early 20th salesman's headstone kit, art of death, and various pieces of death commerce ephemera. Enjoy!
One of our focus areas revolves around the punk/anarcho sub-culture and counter culture more broadly. Presented here is a small, diverse collection of books, zines, posters, etc. all of which are grounded in one or more counter culture scenes. Please note, while priced separately, the Australian anarcho/punk posters are available as a small collection at a rather steep discount. There are a handful of images included…images of all available upon request…
This week's list features a careful selection of EX LIBRIS bookplates that illustrate occult and esoteric themes. Of note is the bookplate by Virgil Finlay created for Oswald Train and the strange botany of Czech/German artist Karl Hugo Frech.
The ’occult’ represents a large spectrum of belief systems including pseudo sciences, astrology, magick, witchcraft, alternative religious movements, and aspects of spiritualism. 75 items of wonder. Enjoy.
