Cold Turkey Press has put together a beautiful collection of collages by the elusive artist Norman O. Mustill, who is known for his collaborations with Mary Beach, Claude Pélieu and Jan Herman. All 11 collages date from 1975 but only some of them were actually published at the time. The rest of the powerful material remained unpublished until this Cold Turkey Press edition appeared.
The portfolio is called Cuisine Rapide and has been printed in a limited edition of 36 copies. Only a couple of copies are available from Sea Urchin. Better hurry. This Cuisine Rapide serves a tasty meal but it will be gone before you can sink your teeth in.
7 improvisational pieces by Michael Morley (The Dead C, Gate, Wreck Small Speakers On Expensive Stereos). Intense and disruptive pieces varying from throbbing psychedelia to harsh industrial soundscapes to roughly cut field recordings, all beautifully mixed. The CD comes in a nice b/w fold-out sleeve. The Pavilion Of Fools was released by Gallery Dessford Vogel, Dunedin, New Zealand, in 1996. Limited stock available. The Pavilion Of Fools has a place just for YOU!
Eugenie Goldschmeding (1970) was trained as an artist in Amsterdam and Paris. A selection of her otherworldly works on paper and sculptures – carrying titles such as Rapunzel’s Delight, Found Forest or Mirror Mirror – has now been brought together in a handsome monograph published by California State University Fullerton.
In sensitive lines and in multi-layered paintings on paper (in which previously rejected works may return) Goldschmeding evokes an enchanted world full of appearing and disappearing creatures and shooting and withering growths. A delicate and unstable world that appears to be on the verge of disappearing itself, twisting and turning to the point of inducing vertigo. Get hold of a copy of this book before it spins out of this world.
A package of 3 recent artists’ zines by Italian artist Nico Vascellari (1970) is available from Sea Urchin. The zine NICO was published in 2013 in a print run of 300 by Black Pages, Vienna and contains 16 pages of b/w stills of a tragicomical video. CODALUNGA 11/12 is a compilation of collages by Nico Vascellari published by Heads Collective in 2012. And IL CORRIERE DEI PASSATEMPI is a 12-page zine that Nico Vascellari once put together as a kid and has now re-issued in an edition of 100 xeroxed and signed copies.
If requested NICO, CODALUNGA 11/12 and IL CORRIERE DEI PASSATEMPI can be bought separately.
Cameron Jamie’s artists’ book Beetazz Neomb is something else: drawings from his sketchbooks were selected and xeroxed on an A3 pistachio green sheet of paper. This sheet was folded into 16 uncut A6 pages, of which one was glued to the inside of a slighter larger and thicker brown cover. The cover itself has drawings xeroxed on 3 sides as well.
The result is a beautiful little fold-out book, of which only 100 copies were folded, glued, and numbered by hand. Beetazz Neomb is a real treat, brown on the outside, green on the inside and collapsible in size.
Try and get your mind around this one.
