Melissa Chiu/Michelle YunNam June Paik – Becoming Robot (hardcover) ... Book
Yale University Press, 2014. New Copy ... $22.99 65.00
A heady look at the life and work of Nam June Paik – the man who virtually invented video art at the end of the 60s, and went on to work in a range of other amazing media too! The core of the book features images from a large retrospective of Paik's career – stills from videos, drawings, sculptures, robots, and a range of other unusual items – plus photographs of so many of those important "moments" that graced Paik's career – those creative outbursts that could never be hung on a living room wall, nor resold over the years. There's some great shots of famous collaborations with cellist Charlotte Moorman – plus lots more we'd never seen too. The book also features essays on Paik by Bill Viola, Yoko Ono, and others – plus a few other writings on his work – and even a section of his own words too. Harcover, full color, and 190 pages. Book

EerieEerie – Tales Of Fantasy & Suspense! – Collected Works Vol 3 – Issues 15 to 17 – April/May 1954 to August/September 1954 – Fantom Witch ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... $9.99 47.99
An early horror comic that definitely lives up to its name – not to be confused with the black and white magazine that started in the 60s from Warren Publications – but a much earlier, much more obscure work from the glory days of pre-code books in the 50s! Eerie definitely has a look that fits alongside most of its contemporaries – those ultra-creepy comics that were the bane of parents and the PTA back in the day – but the publication also seems willing to try some new things, too – as they experiment with an odd array of creatures and creeps that make their stories a bit different than usual. Don't worry, there's still plenty of ghouls, gore, and freaked-out dudes – and art in these issues is by Wally Wood, Joe Kubert, Fred Kida, John Giunta, Manny Stallman, and others. Book features three full issues of Eerie, plus the original 1947 book – billed as the first horror comic – and issues of Phantom Witch Doctor and Night Of Mystery. Book

Sal MaidaFour Strings, Phony Proof & 300 45s – Adventures From Roxy Music, Sparks & Milk N Cookies ... Book
HoZac, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A pretty amazing little memoir by NYC born & bred bass player Sal Maida – hardly a household name, but a guy whose story ought to be known – having gone from an obsessive music fan and card carrying member of the Sparks International Fan Club to actually playing IN Sparks, but not until after some time playing bass in Roxy Music, and co-founding east coast power pop should-be legends Milk 'N' Cookies! His story and adventures don't begin or end in any of those situations, though. He's done session work in loads of Kim Fowley productions and all kinds of great stuff with fascinating characters, and while he could be forgiven for laying out his story by bragging, he never really does that here, starting out as a New York's Little Italy-bred Anglophile who kept finding himself and more and more interesting situations, but was first a starstruck fan. Written in his charming voice, and filled with his own photos and more. Paperback, 175+ pages and with a forward by Lenny Kaye. Book
