Dania Beach, FL: Claire Jeanine Satin, 2004. A unique artists' book from Claire Jeanine Satin, a well known book artist, sculptor and designer of public art installations. Signed by the artist. Satin's work has been extensively exhibited and collected in the United States and in Europe, including at The Library of Congress, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, The Getty (CA), MOMA, The Victoria and Albert Museum, and the National Institute of Design (India). She has created 250 bookworks to date. She is known especially for her conceptual works in uenced by the ideas of composer/visual artist John Cage, and the conversion of ordinary industrial materials into environmental constructions and book works of layered transparent mass. She writes: "Pentimento" refers to the idea of re-appearences manifested by employing the use of transparency, multiplicity, interpenetration.  These factors result in the concept of indeterminacy influenced by my association with John Cage whom I first met in 1979. The work includes excerpts from a reassembled 1939 typing workbook. The workbook belonged to my father, who taught typewriting and stenography. He used this workbook in his classes.  It illustrates the designs that can be created on the old typewriters where one could control the carriage for desired effects.  Included are corrective strips from my mistakes on the typewriter. Images are printed on transparencies with metallic overlays with crystal beads and monofilament." In fine condition. Size: 8.5 x 6.5 inches closed. ARTISTSBOOK/032918. Fine.
