'Gift: I Made This For You' by Sarah Bodman
Produced to resemble the type of pamphlet publication / recipe book given away with newly purchased gas cookers in the 1940s–50s. It contains 14 'recipes' for 15 people. Each of the dishes was cooked and photographed by the artist in the same sequence that the original dishes were prepared. Gift in the English language means a present, it is also the German word for poison. A limited edition artist’s book inspired by the 'Angel of Bremen’, Gesche Gottfried, considered a model citizen by the public but who actually murdered fifteen people by lacing their food with arsenic.
We are pleased to announce the purchase of this book by the British Library, London for their collection.
A unique copy of 'Venice' by John Craig
Printed by John Randle at The Whittington Press, with a sumptuous binding by Sangorski & Sutcliffe.
This volume is absolutely stunning and a perfect gift for the avid collector: bound in teal and orange goatskin with onlays in pepper red and navy blue. All edges are gilt with gouge work in gold leaf to gondolas and hand lettered to spine in gold leaf with soft terracotta handmade endpapers enclosed in a cloth slipcase.
£2,450 (plus P&P and insurance)
