A more or less complete list of what we will be bringing to the Oakland/SF ABAA book fair.
“Artists' books are a unique genre, ultimately a genre which is as much about itself, its own forms and traditions, as any other art form or activity.” (Johanna Drucker)
A small sampling of books and artists we represent. Enjoy
A few things from a variety of areas to tempt and tantilize!
Aidan's final Buy A Book, Make a Kid Happy catalogue, pulling together material from his 6 prior catalogues and adding a bit more. It is long (nearly 400 items). We decided not to include images, as it would have radically increased the size...but please ask for images of anything you'd like to see.
The inventory representing the “Punk is Dead” collection is a retrospective selection of critical primary source materials documenting the punk rock movement of the 1970s-1990s. The collection illustrates the profound subculture of punk from an artistic and politically fueled era from Los Angeles, New York, and London.
The current inventory reflected in “Sex, Death, and the Devil” is an expansion of an established theme exploring visually stimulating, intellectually engaging, and often challenging items. This selection of material includes rare editions, archival materials, and obscure media illustrating facets of human sexuality, gender diversities, mortality, and contentious belief systems. The catalog is both diverse and thoughtful, exploring a broad spectrum of interests.
