Fortune Magazine March, 1935 (Japanese Silk; 6 Day Bike Race Madison Square Garden)
1 Fortune Magazine March, 1935 (Japanese Silk; 6 Day Bike Race Madison Square Garden)
New York Time-Life 1935 Volume XI, No. 3 soft cover Good 
There is a bit damage to this one, but I bought it anyway because the article about Japanese silk is fantastic! I'll get to that soon, but first you need to know that the upper corner of the last couple pages and the back cover corner were all creased up. I have been able to smooth it all out (see photos)-- we're talking just a couple pages at the back. One required archival tape before the corner fell off and one has a small loss of a corner. The cover just shows several creases at the corner. There's also a small bit of wear to both the top and bottom of the spine, but it doesn't impinge on the binding at all. Everything is tight. Now then, the best story in this issue is a TEN PAGE extravaganza about Japanese cloth. If you love textiles, or all things Japanese as I do, this one's a keeper! Other articles are about International Cement, Soviet Art, symphony finance, Social Security, the six day bike race at Madison Square Garden, and Duparquet, the company which provided quality cooking utensils and kitchen design. Magazine is huge at 11"x14", but still ships for $2.00 in the U.S. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but due to size and weight the shipping will be higher. Contact me with destination and I will provide an actual cost. No obligation.

House Beautiful Magazine May, 1933
2 House Beautiful Magazine May, 1933
Concord, New Hampshire The Hosue Beauytiful Publishing Co. 1933 New England Edition soft cover Very good condition 
Crisp and incredibly clean -- the pages of this magazine are like new. This isue shows a special New England segment which introduces the love of fishing, tennis, and Bennington College, plus a renovation from stable to house, and a Rockport, Mass. home renovation. There are also gardens, notes from the southwest, French cooking utensils, and bargello needlework. But the most eye-catching is the article "Design For Living: House Number Four of the Home and Industrial Arts Group at the Century of Progress, New York World's Fair, 1933." Magazine measures 10" x 13". Only fault is some small chips to outer side of lower front cover and a few areas on spine strip which needed repair. I used non-browning archival tape to secure it and it's almost invisble. See main picture. .

Objects For Preparing Food (Exhibition Catalog 1973)
3 Objects For Preparing Food (Exhibition Catalog 1973)
Washington, D.C. Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian Institution 1973 soft cover Very Good 
Fabulous art catalog celebrating the art of the lowly, as in the utensils and vessels used by cooks. If you know your way around the kitchen, or wish you did, you will love these oversized pages filled with black and white photos of many, many items -- some of which you may not even recognize. The book is huge at 12"x12-1/2" and was published to accompany an exhibit at the Renwick Gallery which ran from Feb. 9, 1973 to April 29, 1973. The New York Museum of Contemporary Crafts also played a role in making it happen.
