    A Pop-Up Culinary Herbal. Volume Two of the Plant Lore of the 21st Century Series by Sheehy, Shawn

    Chicago, IL: Paperboy Press, 2013. Artist's book, one of 30 copies, all on commercial cover paper in various weights from various manufacturers, each copy signed and numbered by the artist, Shawn Sheehy, on the colophon. Page size: 6.5 x 4.5 x 1.25 inches; 30pp, including 12 double-page spread pop-up vegetables. Bound: drab boards with red paper spine, small collaged decoration of maize on front panel. The brightly colored papers serve as base for the double-page pop-ups, each with a small (2.5 x 2.5 inches) green printed folded note held closed with matching tab; common name, Latin name and variety printed on the outside, and brief description of the benefits and habits of the plant. These folio cards are mounted in a corner of each double-page spread, For example, the artichoke (Cynara Cardunculus), Green Globe (the featured cultivar) is cited as having high levels of antioxidants, and cynarine with nutritional values that aid digestion, improve liver and gallbladder function and reduce cholesterol. Printed letterpress in Italian electric by Sarah Vogel from photopolymer plates. The Table of Contents divides the plants into two groups: those from the old world and those from the new world. Mr. Sheehy's essay on plants and plant lore is one page as is the colophon. The plants pictured and described are: cabbage, cauliflower, rhubarb, beetroot, chard, asparagus, artichoke, maize, lima bean, pumpkin, tomato, and potato. The 12 plants pictured and described herein are a delight. Brightly colored and charmingly intrusive, they are inviting and garner attention. Once again, Shawn Sheehy has created a tour-de-force book structure. The vibrant plants jump out at the reader - almost shockingly so - then fold up to hide their beauty until the page is once again opened.

    One Eye Less by Plimpton, Sarah

    New York, 2006. Artist's Book, one of 15 copies, all on Arches 88 paper, signed and numbered by the artist / author, Sarah Plimpton. Page size: 14-5/16 inches x 10-5/16 inches; 20pp. Each of the 20 pages has original silkscreen prints by the artist / author in bold colors. The text is set in Monotype Bodoni and was printed in gray by the artist with the help of Brad Ewing at The Grenfell Press. Bound: loose as issued in original plain buff wrapper, housed in gray cloth clamshell box by Claudia Cohen with title and artist's name in gild on black morocco label on spine, fine. Ms. Plimpton's six poems are surrounded by strong shapes in a black, tan, light and dark gray, orange, light and dark brown, light and darker blue, and a magical red. Circles intersect with rectangles and squares, jagged edges, and forms with circular shapes cut out, intersect with perpendicular lines. What the mind's eye sees is interpreted in words and images by this wonderful artist. The tension created by the strong blocks of color sandwiching much small circles, or the blanks of white left in circular cut-outs are matched by the compressed texts, i.e. "Vertigo / the eye bent / inside / held tight / a railing / on the edge of looking down." An interior vision is made exterior and the reader, luckily, gets to share. Certainly this is one of Ms. Plimpton's strongest books to date. The rich colors are immediately compelling and pull in the viewer / reader.
