The University of Wisconsin have a new site: Artists' Book Collection-
"This database is an illustrated, descriptive index to the Artists’ Book Collection, located in the Kohler Art Library, University of Wisconsin-Madison. Presently, the Artists’ Book Collection contains over 800 titles. The database indexes approximately 760 of those titles, over 500 of which have one to four images to visually represent the structure and/or content of the book. With the goal to create a “visual finding aid” to the entire Artists’ Book Collection, the database will be expanded and updated on a periodic basis."

The wood engraving above 'Face to Face - twelve contemporary American artists interpret... is The Engraver by Ray Gloekler. There is an entire book retrospective of his work published by The Elvehjem Museum of Art called Ray Gloekler: Master Printmaker.

Great blog. Keep up the good works.

Thanks Robert. I have a strong deja vu feeling about that wonderful Gloeckler print - but that feeling is something of a BibliOdyssean side affect.

No wonder his woodcut is among the collection - he graduated from Wisconsin University as a pharmacist but went back to teach in the Art dept. [book]

Timothy Ely’s stuff always looks so fascinating—I would love to get a close-up look at one of his one-off books. I like the look of that 'Neo Emblemata Nova' thing as well. Also, someone has taken the considerable trouble of scanning the whole of the Codex Seraphinianus and presenting it on-line

peacay said...

Thanks dactilar!

Aah...I knew there was a Serafini copy on flickr. I was attempting to restrain myself from posting it to the front page. And yeah, it is a pity about the emblemata book - I couldn't find any more images around.

Interestingly, Timothy Ely instructs at the same facility as Daniel E. Kelm (emblemata); together with a couple of other names I recognise: The Garage Annexe School in Massachusetts.

That Codex Seraphinianus set may be swiped from this Flickr site:

Or vice versa. But the Flickr one seems more likely to be the original.

......And I missed the comment above. Ahem.

I love the horse to the right below the owl, athena. Alexander had a horse named Bucephalus and did you know that Bucephalus was one of Socrates friends in Greece? Your blog is great, I hope you will check mine out too. I am an intuitive sensitive with many talents and gifts, I would love to discuss some of these things with you. thank you.

Hallo PK. As usual simply stunning.
I browsed here and noticed the Otis link is out of date - I went searching and found you a new one.
THanks again for all the marvellous work - going to blog some Revelations pics later on.

peacay said...

Thanks Genevieve! I fixed the link and went to go back to the original post but I'd already updated that one! Cheers.
