From the back cover:"The Studio Reader pulls back the curtain to reveal the activities behind artistic production. What does it mean to be in the studio?

Oblivion

Catalog Number: 
Book, Fujita
Date: 
2018
Edition: 
first
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
Jun Fujita (1888-1863) was a poet and photographer born outside of Hiroshima, Japan. As a teenager, he emigrated to Canada where he worked as a laborer and train porter in British Columbia. By 1909 he had made his way to Chicago, where he found employment briefly as an actor, and the more enduringly as a photographer for the Chicago Evening Post. In the twenties, Fujita's poems began appearing in Poetry, and in 1923 he published his only book, Tanka: Poems in Exile. Although Fujita is remembered for taking some of the most indelible and horrifying images of the early twentieth century, in his poems and private photography his central fascination was with the natural world. Writing about his relationship to wild flowers, Fujita notes: "I feel that moods are beyond the reach of the camera. But I feel words are too crude for the delicate moods of wild flowers. Whether I have succeeded in portraying the moods of these wild flowers I am not sure. I am trying."

Consider The Sauce

Catalog Number: 
Book, Sams
Date: 
1957
Abstract: 
"Friends suggested numerous ideas for this year's book. I favored "sauces" for the simple reason that in most forms of cookery and eating, the sauce is the making of the dish whether it be Hungarian, French, English or just plain American food, But I wondered about the origin of the word. I found the expression, "To earn one's salt," had deep meaning in the days before refrigeration when salt was the chief means of keeping meat from spoiling. Things preserved with salt were "salsa," a Latin term whence came the English interpretation, "sauce," and "saucy." Many other words came out of this interesting beginning. "Saucy" is even used to express ideas and manners. Fran Dobbs, my associate for more years than she cares to admit, and a fine cook in her own right, liked the idea and when she obligingly offered to the research this past summer in her new home at Pentwater, Michigan, how could I resist? So for this year's greeting, you have "Consider The Sauce." I hope it will prove to be a good and helpful book. Use it often and you will come to prize it. Barbara, Penny, Tom, Tim and David join once again in wishing you and yours a most Merry, Merry Christmas and a Happy, Happy New Year." Howard Waldemar Sams Christmas 1957
