Haughtily beautiful or whimsically irreverent, buttons are a unique mirror of changing fashions in dress and the decorative arts through the centuries. With a foreword by acclaimed artist Jim Dine and a preface by best-selling author Tom Wolfe, both devoted buttons aficionadoes, this book appeals to the serious collector and casual enthusiast alike.

Jim Dine Prints, 1985-2000: A Catalogue Raisonne
by Elizabeth Carpenter, et al
One of the most recognizable of American artists, and one of America's most innovative printmakers, Jim Dine has created a multidisciplinary oeuvre tied together by his continued use and reinvention of familiar imagery. Hearts, bathrobes, skulls, tools, the Crommelynck gate, Venus de Milo, self-portraits, plants, and flowers--Dine infuses these personal metaphors with new meanings and continually depicts them in novel and diverse contexts. Over time, some of these motifs have become recognized as clearly symbolic: the bathrobe figures as a self-portrait, the heart as a symbol of his love for wife Nancy. And also over time, Dine has added new images to his iconic repertory. Mountains, ancient Greco-Roman sculpture, owls, hands, trees, apes, Pinocchio, and ravens figure prominently in the prints he has made since 1985. This catalogue raisonne fully documents Dine's evolving imagery and technical experimentation from the late 80s through the millennium, including his limited-edition illustrated books, and establishes his absolute maturity as an artist. A glossary of printmaking terms, a selected print exhibition history and bibilography, and a discussion of his poetry and literary leanings make this catalog complete. By Elizabeth Carpenter with an essay by Joseph Ruzicka. Foreword by Richard Campbell and Evan M. Maurer.

Jim Dine : Walking Memory, 1959-1969
by Jim Dine, et al
A Cincinnati native, Dine moved to New York in the late 1950s and quickly became part of the roiling art scene there, which included contemporaries like Claes Oldenburg and Red Grooms. Dine's oeuvre includes paintings, sculpture, and performance. The images in the book are full of vivid color and objects--tools, hearts, and domestic interiors--repeated thematically, and they cover all three areas of his work. One performance still, From Vaudeville Collage (1960), shows Dine disguised in a costume and a painted face performing alongside an ensemble cast of leafy vegetables. Summer Tools (1962) is a three-paneled painting with splotches of rainbow colors and a hammer, rope, screwdriver, and other hand tools attached to the top. Dine's flair for the theatrical is on full view in both of these pieces. In addition to the color plates, the book includes essays by Germano Celant, Clare Bell, and Julia Blant, as well as an interview with Dine. A great opportunity to look at works by one of the premier assemblage artists of the 1960s. --Jennifer Cohen -
