RETURN FROM HIATUS

In Uncategorized on November 12, 2010 at 5:29 pm

A lot has happened since my last post in August.  I  began my studies at the University of Texas at Austin and have been diligently working on papers concerning the gardens of the Roman Republic, political prints of the French Revolution, and the historical materials of the book arts. I will be returning to Marfa in January to continue my archival work.

From Gleason's essay Porticus Pompeiana: a new perspective on the first public park of ancient Rome

 

Unidentified. Allegorie Dediée au Tiers État. From the Popular Imagery Collection of the Harry Ransom Center.

Classic reference on book terminology, description, and collecting, first published in 1952.

In addition, my partner (Tim Johnson) and I finished the installation of printed works by Ian Hamilton Finlay, currently on view at the Marfa Book Co. Gallery.  In conjunction with the exhibition, we published our first book titled The Present Order : Writings on the Work of Ian Hamilton Finlay.

Over the next few months I will be posting documentation of the show, the book, and our collaboration with Flint Jamison, designer of the Finlay book.
