Objects For Preparing Food (Exhibition Catalog 1973)

By: N/A

Price: $16.00

Publisher: Washington, D.C., Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian Institution: 1973

Seller ID: 0065

Condition: 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. View more info

By: N/A

Price: $20.00

Publisher: Watkins Glen, New York, Century House Inc.: 1977

Seller ID: 0083

Condition: Very good


This is a surprisingly hard-to-find little booklet printed entirely in shades of blue, including illustrations by the subject. The booklet measures 6"x9" and is clean as a whistle inside and out. Flat crease to lower front corner is the only fault. Nice edition to any Jessie Wilcox Smith Wilcox collection, as it offers biographical and other material, including a bibliography and the Good Housekeeping covers. View more info

Beautiful, fanciful, charming -- the adjectives could be strung like pearls on a necklace to describe the works of the famous Russian artist, Erte, whose work graced the cover of Harper's Bazaar more than 200 times. Erte was a Russian artist whose early introduction to Persian art inspired him to pursue a career which included not only cover art, but costumes and stage designs of spectacular merit. This exhibit catalog is not seen often and is in clean, tightly bound condition. The art is all in color and celebrates the five year collaboration between Erte and Leon Leonidoff who from 1963-6...

Seller ID: 0416

Condition: Very Good


It's interesting how Munsey Magazine had a HUGE circulation and yet it's less well known than Century, Harper's and Frank Leslie's. I just got six issues though so am happy as a clam. Before I tell you about this one though here's a fun fact about Munsey -- it was considered a bit racy and some stores would not stock it due to its "undressed women and undressed statuary." This issue is clean and tightly bound. A previous owner trimmed off the overhang (known as yapped edges) -- a common reaction after they acquire a million small tears. Great ads, fiction and articles await. The most signifian... View more info

The Sculptor's Guild remains hale and hearty today, but this program comes from its very first outdoor exhibition in April and May 1938, just one year after they organized. During the Depression most American artists made their living via the WPA. Consequently, this exhibition relied on sponsors including Eleanor Roosevelt, Fiorello La Guardia,the Rockefeller Foundation and several noted NYC museums.
