Bindings in NYC

1) The catalog for the Wormsley show runs at about $45.00 (unless they're
discounting it at the Morgan - back to you later on that). It's superb:
very high quality reproductions, serious scholarly notes.
I agree with some of the doubts about the show itself. My review is still
on my web-site, though I plan to take it down next week.

2) About the Surrealist bindings at the Guggenheim: I have the list, and
it's a bit scary: there are 91 bindings, including Arp, Bellmer, Sonia
Delaunay, Paul Bonet (22), Georges Leroux (23), Pierre-Lucien Martin (11),
etc. And that's not counting the trial proofs by Miro, the corrected
original copy of the first Surrealist Manifesto, and so forth. The show
opens next week.
