New Interdisciplinary Artist’s Book: Notes / Richard Minsky

Leave a comment

If you are interested in interdisciplinary artists’ books that include music, please take a look at Notes. There will be a cloth hardcover edition of fifteen copies, a Deluxe edition of five leather bound copies, and a unique Musical Chair that extends the binding into a total body experience. Each copy of the book includes a linoleum block color field print from 1972, a  letterpress 7″ record jacket from 1981, and comes with a CD of a 38 minute work recorded at Mercury Studios in 1972 for which the score is in the book.

Pre-publication discounts are in effect through Friday, November 14 or until all the copies are subscribed. Details, download of sample pages, online ordering and institutional order form are at: http://minsky.com/notes.htm

I am glad to answer any queries–you can email me: Richard Minsky <arlis@minsky.com> or phone 516.729-9227.

This Friday I will be presenting a reading of NOTES and will play some music from the book at an “Artist Talk & Reception”

When:  Friday Nov. 14, 2014
Where: The Center for Book Arts, 28 W. 27, NYC, 6:30 pm.
What: NOTES is a CBA Featured Artist Project on exhibit through December 20.

This will double as the publication party for the book.

This is my second exploration of the reading chair as an extension of the binding. The previous one, Freedom of Choice: Three Poems of Love and Death by Lucie Brock-Broido, was acquired by the Lloyd Sealy Library of John Jay College of Criminal Justice. For that work the book was chained to an electric chair with an audio component: http://minsky.com/choice.htm
