Lives on the Boundary: A Moving Account of the Struggles and Achievements of America’s Educationally

Mike Rose

$13.37

Remedial, illiterate, intellectually deficient—these are the stigmas that define America’s educationally underprepared. Having grown up poor and been labeled this way, nationally acclaimed educator and author Mike Rose takes us into classrooms and communities to reveal what really lies behind the labels and test scores. With rich detail, Rose demonstrates innovative methods to initiate “problem” students into the world of language, literature, and written expression. This book challenges educators, policymakers, and parents to re-examine their assumptions about the capacities of a wide range of students. Already a classic, Lives on the Boundary offers a truly democratic vision, one that should be heeded by anyone concerned with America’s future.

Lost Souls

Lena Herzog

$40.29

Lost Souls records Lena Herzog's journey into a world rarely seen by outsiders: cabinets of wonder and curiosities (Kunstkammern and Wunderkammern) that include the world's earliest medical museums, where oddities have been closely guarded for centuries. Established in the early eighteenth century, Russia's first Kunstkammer triggered a profound debate over religious and existential questions. The Orthodox Church, faced with a collection of Cyclopes, Siamese twins, and creatures that looked like lions or leprechauns, could not justify nature's unsuccessful attempts at human life and deemed their souls lost: they could not go to heaven, hell, or limbo—they were dead on arrival and had nowhere to go. Herzog was granted access to the Wunderkammern around the world and has photographed the mysteries with a sense of beauty, wonder, and tenderness. Her subjects are mostly infants born with genetic defects that prevented their survival, and although they have been preserved as scientific specimens—some for hundreds of years—they are profoundly transformed through Herzog's lens into beings that mirror our own fears and existential dilemmas. Herzog follows this portrait gallery of sorrows with images of the skeletons and bones of various creatures—both warm- and cold-blooded—and continues the journey with views of some of the unusual subjects on display in the curiosity cabinets. The final section, "The Mice Orchestra, or The Rhapsody of Death," shows a diabolically witty scene, an actual nineteenth-century installation from the Anatomical Museum of Leiden University Medical Center, which has been hidden in the museum's storage for years. Herzog uses a combination of unique processes for developing her negatives and printing her photographs, resulting in images with tonal subtleties, palpable textures, and superb clarity and resonance. This book reproduces the prints that Herzog exhibited at the International Center of Photography in New York in 2010.

 

Louise Bourgeois & Gary Indiana: To Whom It May Concern

 

Louise Bourgeois & Gary Indiana: To Whom It May Concern

Gary Indiana (Author), Louise Bourgeois (Artist)

$64.23

Originally published in a large-format limited edition of seven copies, "To Whom It May Concern" pairs Louise Bourgeois' luminous male and female torsos with Gary Indiana's prose poems in a meditation on physicality, sexuality and relationships. Violette's publication reproduces this artist's book--one of the last projects Bourgeois completed before her death in 2010--in a reduced, collectible format. Bourgeois' headless bodies, printed en face in erotic standoff, represent male and female at their essential: swollen bellies, heavy breasts and engorged phalluses, all rendered in rich pinks, purples, reds and blues. Indiana's short, visceral but lyrical texts are interspersed throughout in an electric blue typewriter font, conversing with these images through an unconventional non-narrative on the limits of flesh, desire and intimacy. Simple and elegant in design, and exquisitely printed, "To Whom It May Concern" throbs with stripped-down eroticism and the sensualities of image and language juxtaposed.
