Jill Oriane Tarlau Eye Candy and News

I started this post in July after a wonderful correspondence with Jill. Then I was overcome by events:

I was frantically rounding up binders to participate in a fundraiser for Booklyn. Today, the photos posted are of Mark Cockram’s box, followed by 3 views of his binding (Mark was assigned copy 1/10, the “deluxe” copy with all kinds of weird ephemera included. He blogged about it here. The next two photos are Gabrielle Fox‘s binding, and the last four are Celine Lombardi‘s (already sold!). Bindings by Christine Giard and Uriel Cidor are in the photography queue and five more are in the works. Many, many thanks to all of the artists who have donated their time, materials, and extraordinary skill to create outstanding bindings to raise money for a not-for-profit organization that exists to support book arts.

At the same time, I was preparing for Brooklyn BAPD, which happened last weekend, and the Editions/Artists Books Fair in November (they have really early deadlines for all kinds of stuff). In the midst of all of this, I am delighted to announce that I became the sole dealer for Timothy C. Ely. Keep checking his page on my website as I add many images and essays about his work. Prepare to have your minds blown.
