Zapotec Weavers of Teotitlan, Andra Fischgrund Stanton; Foreword by Scott Roth
1 Andra Fischgrund Stanton; Foreword by Scott Roth Zapotec Weavers of Teotitlan
Santa Fe, NM Museum of New Mexico Press 1999 0890133344 / 9780890133347 First Edition Softcover Good+ Illustrated by Jaye R. Phillips 
Ex-library book, but still in quite good condition - laminated cover and usual ex-lib type of markings. Pages are clean and intact, light age tanning to page edges. Laminate on cover has scuffing, light scratches, creasing to rear cover and light wear to edges. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 114 pages.

The Spanish introduced wool yarns and the fixed-frame pedal loom of a type still in use today. The Mexican Revolution saw a celebration of indigenous crafts and the opening of the Pan-American Highway in 1948 brought Teotitlan's weavers to the craft markets of Oaxaca. American importers in the 1970s infused textile production with new energy, resulting in today's dizzying variety of works that range from modernist motifs to Navajo geometrics to ancient and historical patterns reprised in vivid and colourful contemporary designs. Zapotec weavers express their sense of well-being and belonging in what they weave, and the tapestries and rugs that are currently produced reconcile ancient history with the ways of the 21st century marketplace.

S L Sarah Lucas, Matthew Collings
2 Matthew Collings S L Sarah Lucas
London Tate Publishing 2002 1854373897 / 9781854373892 First Edition Softcover Very Good+ 
Ex-library book, but still in very good condition - sturdy laminated cover and usual ex-lib type of markings. Pages are clean and intact, light soiling to outer edge of pages, light wrinkling to corners of one section of pages. Cover has light corner wear and light scuffing. Illustrated in colour. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 128 pages;

The work of Sarah Lucas (b. 1962) , often assembled from everyday materials and dealing with recurrent themes of sex, death, and gender, is laced with a distinctive bleak humor. Her best-known piece is Two Fried Eggs and a Kebab, a work that wittily combines the aforementioned materials with a junk-shop table and manages to comment on not only sexism and gender but also mortality, language, and the tradition of the female nude in Western art. Matthew Collings explores Lucas's art and ideas in this first thorough look at one of today's most important artists. (570,0514)

Peter Blake PB, Natalie Rudd
3 Natalie Rudd Peter Blake PB
London Tate Publishing 2003 1854374192 / 9781854374196 First Edition Softcover Very Good+

Peter Blake (b. 1932) was a pioneer of the Pop art movement in Britain in the 1950s and 1960s. His interest in and appropriation of popular culture, as seen in his portraits of movie and pop stars and his re-creations of commercial packaging, predated Warhol. In 1967 he created one of the most famous icons of the era, the cover of The Beatles' album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Here, Natalie Rudd provides a comprehensive account of Blake's wide-ranging and influential oeuvre, one that includes painting, collage, sculpture, and illustration. (570, 0514)
