NEW YORK/PARIS DIALOGUE PARIS/NEW YORK.
Held simultaneously in Paris in October and in New York from October to December, 2005, and organized by Maddy Rosenberg, independent curator, New York City, and Devorah Boxer, Vice President, Le Trait, Paris, this exhibition brings together works by eighteen American artists and eighteen French artists to highlight the role of the artist printmaker and the contrasts between the American and the French approach to the medium. The artwork spans printmaking from the traditional to the more unconventional, with techniques ranging from intaglio, lithography, and silkscreen to photo and digital processes. The full color catalogue is in English and French and includes curatorial essays by Maddy Rosenberg and Devorah Boxer. The catalogue cover was letterpress printed and the catalogue was hand bound by interns at the Center for Book Arts.

BIBLIOGRAPHICAL AND DESCRIPTIVE TOUR FROM SCARBOROUGH TO ...
by Cole, John
First edition, limited to 100 copies. Signed by the author on the verso of the dedication page. Dedicated to Francis Wrangham (1769-1842), who assembled a library which contained over 14,000 volumes and was accomplished at finding obscure and interesting titles. John Cole was a bookseller from Scarborough on whom Wrangham had great influence. This book gives a description of 100 selected titles in Wrangham's library, the notes being mainly drawn from Wrangham's private catalogue, then in MS., but destined to be printed two years later. (Michael Sadleir's Archdeacon Francis Wrangham 1769-1842. Oxford Bibl. Soc., 1937). From the library of John William Clay with his bookplate. Original paper wrappers worn along edges and hinges. Paper spine label mostly rubbed away. Unusual to find in original condition.
