Prints in 3-5 business days
The story about Johnny North, a high school senior from Anchorage, Alaska and the vicissitudes that have been special delivered from the 98.6% parallel Oh Henry galaxy. The Dang family of... More > Pennsylvania discovers Johnny in their barn and reveals to him that serendipity is alive and well on Planet Three. Various topics of faith, adventure, occupation, relationships and science get sprinkled with relevant music and poetry. To Johnny North, Dang Valley has the mixed-up ingredients of the Twilight Zone, Star Trek, Mr. Ed, Huckleberry Finn and Woodstock shoved into a blender where the only item left spinning is the maelstrom of life. George Dang, the old patriarch in town, helps entwine all the little stories into the big stories of consciousness and existence. Who better than Mark Twain to begin each chapter with an anecdote from the past to enlighten the present. Sometimes it is best to enjoy the ride from the outside and march fourth with twenty-twenty vision.< Less
FREE FALL By Nick Piombino

"Free Fall was created in several steps beginning in July, 2001—when I collected a stack of advertising posters off buildings on the streets of Amsterdam. The serendipity of a period of... More > rain had caused many of the ads to blur and run and to have already partially removed themselves from the walls. In a series of visits I tore down quite a number of them, and before coming back to the US, made a selection. Once back in New York I xeroxed a number of copies of the poster fragments in order to work out mock-ups of the collages, and purchased a 5"X7" artist's sketch book to paste them into. Over the years, since creating my first collages in the late 60's in Rapallo, Italy, I had begun several collage books, none of them completed, so I had some idea of what I wanted to do. I did further xeroxing in Provincetown, Mass. in August. Sitting outside a small cottage near the Wellfleet bay, I made the entire series of 154 collages in about a month." —Nick Piombino< Less
a diary of a rough voyage to America By Paul Tapp
Paperback: $16.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
This booklet has its origins in a the diary of John Dixon,a relative of Valda Buckley, when her husband Barry operated the Blue Waters Hotel at Orford. It gives a fascinating insight into the... More > conditions aboard those small ships that ventured into the sometimes terrifying Atlantic between Liverpool and London. Dixon made the voyage in 1868 when he and his family emigrated to America to start a new life. Through a piece of serendipity I discovered on the world-wide-web, an oil-painting of the same vessel on which he made the crossing, the Cunard steamship 'Tarifa'. The booklet also contains images sketched by artists of the time, which give a graphic account of cramped conditions on board, capturing also the terror of rough crossings. New York resident, Mrs Maggie Land Blanck, has kindly agreed to my use of these depictions she has posted on the web as a reminder of the brave pioneering spirit of those who filled America for new lives from across the globe.< Less

Tutti portiamo delle maschere nella nostra vita e Keimer è la mia. Senza pietà o con troppo amore nelle medesime parti. Le mie carte virtuali dovevano insegnarmi che la qualità... More > è meglio della quantità ed invece nulla. Mi restano solamente poche righe ed un numero di telefono che ormai non squilla più. "Non ti amo più,sei un ricordo improbabile.Sei una macchia sbiadita non esistente, sei il nulla, sei un bugiardo, sei pieno e troppo leggero dei vuoti..Sei vuoto e pesante, sei maligno, sei malato. Sei un illuso, sei rabbia e cattiveria, sei un approfittatore, sei il nulla, sei la non quiete, sei un opportunista. Sei uno stronzo, sei cattivo, sei violento. Sai solo alzare le mani e nasconderti. Vivi nel nulla vivi di rimpianti vivi solo di te stesso. La vita ti ha fottuto tu non fotti." ( Serendipity Bunker )< Less
