After Pieter De Hooch.
Psychedelic poster, 1967, designed by Victor Moscoso.
From the THINGS THAT HAVE INTERESTED ME collection of books and decorative arts in my shop. Victor Moscoso designed the poster incorporating a doorway detail from Pieter De Hooch's painting, The Courtyard of a House in Delft, 1658 . for THE DOOR'S series of concerts at the Matrix at The Fillmore, San Francisco. It is a contemplative domestic doorway scene for which the early Netherlandish painter was famous. I am thrilled to offer the poster for sale in my shop. Please see the links to both artists for a greater appreciation of the poster. And if you don't know who the Doors were please click here for that link. $950.
ADVERTISING FAN. ephemera from Cafe Martin [1901-1913], NYC. early 20th century. credit for my description goes to Henry Voigt for his highly informative blog entitled THE AMERICAN MENU. Cafe Martin was opened in 1901 by the Martin brothers, Jean and Louis- on the foundation of Delmonico’s restaurant at 26th Street between 5th and Broadway. It was sumptuous and well orchestrated, easily accommodating a society wedding or political caucus nominating supper. Fan is Japonisme-Victorian style, wooden sticks(9”) and guards, brass rivet and loop, cotton cord tassel. In VG. $150.
This is a dominotier for an éventail or handfan. The bright colors are reminscencent of Tarascon fabric-- at least to me. It's in the shop until I'm ready to part with it-- bright and charming and framed with provenance seems to have been a museum deaccession. $950.

Owen Simmons, F.C.S. THE BOOK OF BREAD. London: Maclaren & Sons, n.d. 1903. 4to. 360pp. green cloth with gold stamped title. The author had the distinction of being the:
Great Britain and Ireland
Certificated by Examinations under Government (Science and Art Department) in Chemistry, Mechanics, Machine Construction and Hygiene, and in Bread-Making Under the City and Guilds of London Institute (with “Honours”)
Expert since 1888 to “The British Baker”

How to bake a good loaf, in a technological, scholarly and a scientific sort of way.
Illustrated with “actual size” photographs- 8 black and white, as paste-ons, two superb “silver gelatin” photographs, 11 color photographic prints and 4 black and white photographic illustrations- all of types of bread loaves. In an introductory essay the author explains the difficulty in producing these photographs to illustrate the do’s and don'ts of breadmaking.Martin Parr and Gerry Badger included THE BOOK OF BREAD in their book THE PHOTOBOOK: A HISTORY VOLUME 1, 2004, and and also mention it in interviews publicizing their book- curiously comparing the book and author to a 1980’s conceptual artist. It has since “risen” in the “sought after” art book and rare book market.
