3 Orig. Posters-Literary & Film Themes/QC - 1980''s
Price: $145.00
This group of posters includes one which appears to be some kind of promotional piece for a group of literary pieces - the reverse side of Madness (which has a spot on it - visible in the photo - near the ''D'' and appears to have originally been folded in four, but which is otherwise in good shape and fairly interesting) under the Glide label, including such classics as: ''Shock Treatment is not Good for your Brain. Call Me...'', ''The Battered Wives of America...'', Yerba Buena: Land Grab and Community Resistance in San Francisco'', ''Loving WOmen/Loving Men: Gay Liberation and the Church...'' Either someone had a wicked sense of humor, or the book titles of the 1970''s are too cool for me... Madness measures 16 x 18 inches and is overall in good condition (with noted creases). The second poster in this book appears to be art for an exhibition of photographs pertaining to Three Mile Island which took place in Montreal by noted photographer Robert del Tredici (''Robert Del Tredici is an artist, photographer, and teacher with a BA in philosophy, an MA in Comparative Literature (University of California, Berkeley), and an interest in the dynamic between image and text. His first sustained artwork was a series of 100 pen-and-ink illustrations to Herman Melville''s Moby Dick, done in the early 1960s. He studied under Tibetan teacher Chogyam Trungpa in the early 1970s, who gave him the name ''Good Eye of Enlightenment.'' Del Tredici began documenting the nuclear age in 1979. His first book of photographs and interviews, The People of Three Mile Island (Sierra Club Books, 1980), was part sociology and part critique of nuclear power. His second book, At Work in the Fields of the Bomb (Harper & Row, 1987), documented the US nuclear weapons industry and won the 1987 Olive Branch Book Award for its contribution to world peace.''), this piece measures 27.5 x 19 inches, and the third was for a piece called L''ordonatrice by Louise Guay for which I can find no information. Guay piece measures 23 x 18 inches. These posters were in the private collection of a noted jazz musician and producer and are only a couple of hundreds which we have just received.
