1 Art Dubai March 18-21, 2015
Dubai Madinat Jumeirah 2015 Soft cover Very good condition 
Very nice publication which is printed completely in two colors -- orange and white. The book is clean and tightly bound, but there is some wrinkling and a few glued tears to the spine. Otherwise it's crisp and clean. The book measures 8-1/4" x 11-1/2" and has 230 pages to showcase the largest group of Arab artists in the world.There are photographs and art on the edges of the pages, but the book primarily explains the festival and its prize winners. It even has color wheels which show the activity of Facebook and Twitter fans. Very nice -- even the exterior page edges are light orange.

The Houghton Line: Not A Yes-Magazine (13 issues 1964-1972)
10 The Houghton Line: Not A Yes-Magazine (13 issues 1964-1972)
Philadelphia E. F. Houghton & Company 1964-1972 soft cover Very good condition 
I haven't seen these quirky little magazines since I first started in business 19 years ago. So I'm pretty tickled to find them again. Houghton just celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2015. To celebrate they printed a special issue of the popular magazine which was closed down in 2008. These 13 I have now are nice and clean, all identical in format and design -- just different accent colors. They're small in size measuring just 4"x7" and are billed as a publication "for people who like to do their own thinking." Topics range from products made by the company and other interesting things that have nothing to do with it. Let's start with the industrial articles which include these products: Cindol lubricants high-temp lubes, Houghto-Safe 1120, Houghton custom molded rubber parts and I-rings and more. The rest of the articles cover these topics and more: Football as big business, metal-working in a blind school, the big boom for small boats, Houghton in Sweden, Soccer Discovers America, the progress and problems of trucking, tuna fishing off Rhode Island, our farm paradox, in defense of industry, living costs around the world, and sports highest paid lightweights. The magazines measure 4" x7" and have 46 pages each. Issues include these: April 1964, Dec. 1964, Feb. 1967, June 1967, Dec., 1967, April 1968, June 1968, Sept. 1968, April 1969, Sept 1969, Dec. 1969, June 1971. Fall 1972.

Laguna Hils, California Stampington Company 2015 Autumn 2015 Card cover Fine condition Jessuica Wolfe, Photographer 
This is like no magazine you have ever seen. It's about enjoying life in all its aspects. There are articles about letting go, stillness, walking, playing with light, the kindnes of strangers, 40 ways to spread kindness, small things worth savoring, life's backpack, where your stories belong, the power of paper, and more. And all of it is so beautiful. I bought this thinking it was a book, so it was a surpise to learn that it's an issue of a quarterly magazine. The magazine has a defined spine, measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 159 pages.

12 Courtney Day, Chris Weldinger, Dan Kubacki et al. As Decade By Decade 1815-2015 Ashland, Ohio
Ashland, Ohio Ashland Times Gazette 2015 Soft cover Very Good 
Ashland, Ohio is locoated in Wayne County and is the home of Ashland College. The booklet is oversized at 10-1/2" square and has 47 pages replete with black and white photographs throughoui and a few color ones, especially for the notable fires. The story of Ashland is told decade by decade all the way from 1815 to 2015. I learned something new as soon as I opened the booklet at random. Did you know that parts of the movie, Shawshank Redemption, were filmed in Ashland? Here's something else to know. I just added a memorial for John Ashbrook, a Congressman who died in the 80's and what did I see here but a photo of the Memorial for Rep. John Ashbrook.

14 Haslam, Nicky Christie's Interiors Auction Catalog 27-18 January, 2015
South Kensington, England Christie's Auction 2015 Soft cover Near fine condition 
From a distance this auction catalog made me think it was a magazine named Interiors. It isn't, but it's full of outlandishly expensive items for the home from furniture to accessories and art. The catalog is oversized at 9-1/2" x 13" and has 120 pages, plus a few back matter pages. All the photos are in color and are nicely described. Before the final gavel went down 820 items had been up for bidding. Nicky Haslam, who is the gentleman on the couch, is an interior designer. The first few pages were hints from him for creating a beautiful home.
