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.

EerieEerie – Tales Of Fantasy & Suspense! – Collected Works Vol 2 – Issues 8 to 14 – August/September 1952 to January/February 1954 (hardcove ... 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 Sid Check, Norman Nodel, Alvin Hollingsworth, Gene Fawcette, Harry Lazarus, and others. Book features seven rare issues of Eerie – all in full color, with cover images and ads too! Book

Jonathan LethemEcstasy Of Influence – Nonfictions Etc (hardcover) ... Book
Doubleday, 2011. New Copy ... $5.99 27.95
Jonathan Lethem is a writer that we totally love – an author who's given us great novels and short stories over the years – and who, somehow between that ever-growing creative output, manages to write a good deal of essays and other articles too! We're not sure when Lethem ever finds time to sleep – but we're also always glad when we see his name in print – sometimes a book review, or an introduction to another author's work, or even liner notes to a record – such is the man's never-ending array of writing! This book collects Lethem in all those many different settings – a stunning array of essays that touch on topics that include science fiction (a longtime love), popular music, contemporary fiction, modern art, 9/11, comic books, films, Brooklyn, and even personal memoir – all handled with the kind of perception and wit that we love in his fiction. The book is a hefty 437 pages – and includes pieces that originally ran in Rolling stone, New York Times, GQ, McSweeny's, Nerve, Village Voice, and many other publications. Book
