Saugerties, NY: the artist and various original authors and publishers, 2014 (the art works). Actual prices range from $45 to $150 each, with a few higher. The example illustrated is Diary of a Zen Nun by Nan Shun (Dutton, 1986) at $100. The "chicken drawings" range from small compositions to full-page explosions and are priced accordingly. All drawings are unique and original. Most copies bear the written statement: "From the archive of Linda Mary Montano." The edition itself is the product of a performance of sorts. The books reflect many of Linda Montano's deepest and most consistent interests: feminism, performance, spirituality, Asian and Native American thought and religion, and individual artists. Most of the periodicals contain contributions by or about her. Book condition runs from cloth bindings in dustjackets to a few well-worn mass-market paperbacks. A priced list is available upon request. Item #24002

Price: $100.00
