Unleash. Islam Aly.

Unleash

Cedar Falls IA: Islam Aly, 2017. Number 4 of 30 copies, signed and numbered by the artist. Islam Aly is an Egyptian-born book artist and teacher based in Iowa. His books explore the possibilities of historical bindings in contemporary book art practice. They have appeared in international exhibitions in the United States and abroad, and in private and public collections including the NewYork Public Library, the Special Collections Library at the University of Alabama, the National Library of Chile, the University of Iowa Special Collections, and Bibliotheca Alexandrina. In an artist's statement he writes: "When I make a historical book structure, I go through a learning process. I learn the history as well as the different physical aspects of the binding such as how a book form is constructed in a specific sequence. I learn about the use of different materials such as paper, wood, leather and dyes. I learn to make choices in selecting and replacing traditional materials that I don’t have access to. I use these different experiences to enhance my work in making artists’ books and to use historical and cultural references from these structures in the actual content. In essence, I wish to explore new ways to use the rich structures of historical books in contemporary artists’ book practice and incorporate contemporary content into strictly historical structures." Unleash is bound in a late Coptic style with laser engraved wooden boards and leather wrapping bands capped with engraved wooden pieces in the shapes of an angel and human head. The interior pages are laser cut with words about being confined, imprisoned, and restrained. All of the words fill the reader with a negative connotation suggestive of oppression, despite the lack of context. The words begin to break apart as an angel appears. With each turn of the page, the angel makes a path through the words and breaks them apart until it leaves the book. The resulting negative space left behind forms the shape of a human face. A powerful statement about how restraint and confinement can be broken apart to restore humanity - or perhaps to force the reader to think compassionately of people who are currently held as prisoners (both literally and through societal, political, or religious decrees). Size: 3 x 6 x 2 inches. Size: 3 x 6 x 2 inches.

Apparitions and Haunted Houses: A Survey of Evidence. Ernest Bennett.

Apparitions and Haunted Houses: A Survey of Evidence

London: Faber and Faber, [1939]. Hardcover. Sir Ernest Bennett (1865-1947) was a British politician, academic, explorer and writer. He had many interests, but Bennett's more unconventional interest was in ghosts, a subject about which he wrote extensively. He was a member of the Council of the Society for Psychical Research, and spent much time investigating haunted houses. While he undoubtedly hoped for positive findings, his rigorous and systematic scientific approach left him empty handed in the end. Bound in green cloth with gilt author and title to spine. Spine is browned with a few small discolored spots. There is a short closed tear to the book cloth along the rear hinge. Light bumping to corners. Interior pages clean and bright. Ownership signature of Alice Worm dated 1939 to front free endpaper. Description of book taped to front pastedown. Slight roll to spine. Very good condition. 393 pages. OCC/041717. Very Good.
