Christie's Auction Catalog: The Connoisseur's Eye New York 2 June, 2015
1 Christie's Auction Catalog: The Connoisseur's Eye New York 2 June, 2015
New York City Christie's 2015 #10859 Card cover Fine condition 
I love the contemporary auction catalog, so beautiful compared to the ones of old with paper covers and no color pictures. The new ones are also oversized -- this one measures 8-1/4" x 10-1/2" and has gorgeous white coated paper and big color photos of the items. The auction offered European furniture, sculpture, ceramics, tapestries and carpets worth millions of dollars. The book is pristine inside and out and showcases 438 lots.

Underglaze Decoration Methods and Original Designs By Marc Bellaire (1992), Bellaire, Marc
7 Bellaire, Marc Underglaze Decoration Methods and Original Designs By Marc Bellaire (1992)
Columbus, Ohio Professional Publications Inc. 1992 15th printing Card cover Fine condition, As New Bellaire, Marc 
This is a remarkably crisp booklet published by the publishers of Ceramic Monthly Magazine. It's a stand-alone booklet which discusses design and method for ceramic artists. It must be a good one though because it's been in print from 1957 to 1992 and perhaps even longer. There are instructions for painting underglazes and has step-by-step photo lessons as well. Covers these topics: the Marc Bellaire Method, brushes and tools, definitions, finishing and painting, glazing, firing and defect, brush stroke vocabulary, backgrounds, fruit vocabulary, birds, animals, figures, special techniques, abstracts, spot decoration, holidays and commemoratives, hobbies and occupations, one-stroke technique, and jewelry. Handbook measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 64 pages. Nice enough to be a gift.

The Story of Casas Grandes Pottery (1991), Cahill, Rick
8 Cahill, Rick The Story of Casas Grandes Pottery (1991)
Tucson, Arizona Bookjum Books 1991 0963085301 / 9780963085306 First Edition,Third printing soft cover Near fine 
Very handsome booklet showcasing southwest American Indian pottery. I found a few extra articles on the topic laid-in, none of which caused any browning to pages. I have sequestered them in a plastic bag and will send along with the booklet. Everything is crisp and clean and there is no spine crease. Former owner's name on title page, a few tiny check marks next to a couple names on the list of artists at back, and two circled names on the Quezada family genealogy are only faults. There's a lot of information here, but it's the huge pictures and dramatic black and white design which makes it a stand-out. Booklet measures 8-1/2"x11" and has 89 pages. Text is in both ENGLISH and SPANISH.

13 No author stated The Opulent Eye: Christie's Auction 19th Century Furniture, Sculpture, Works of Art, Ceramics and Carpets New York, October 21, 2015
New York city Christie's Auction 2015 October 21, 2015 Card cover Fine condition 
Fabulous! From its beautiful cover to its pages of splendid treasures this isn't your mother's auction catalog. Before the 80's the catalog was much smaller and covered with a drab colored wrapper and small black and white photographs inside. All that's gone now because these catalogs are like coffee table books in full color with great descriptions. They're dream books and bigger too. This one measures 8" x 11" with 242 lots. I am so enamored of them that I bought twelve last Saturday!

Goffstown, New Hampshire The Daniel Clark Foundation 1979 Volume Eight, Number 1 Card cover Very good condition 
Studio Potter Journal which is at least 40 years old. It was only published twice a year. This is the first one for 1979. What's interesting about this one is two articles with photographs of the artist, Bernard Leach, a potter from Great Britain. The first article is "Bernard Leach 1887-1979: Towards A Standard" and the second is "Bernard Leach Two Recollections". The first one can be removed and opened up to reveal on the back a full two page poster image of Leach. Other topics are copper red glazes, producing brilliant copper reds in glass, copper red salt vapor glazes and a lot more about red copper. There are also cameos of various potters, their work, and their surroundings. The booklet measures 8-1/2" x 10-1/4" and has 78 pages with many black and white illustrations. The only faults are a bit of sunning to the spine and a small stain to the back cover. Overall very nice
