17 Bryson, Bill
In a Sunburned Country
New York Broadway Books 2000 0767903854 / 9780767903851 1st Hardcover Fine Fine Collectible 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
x, 307 pp., illus., maps, biblio.; 25 cm. Tight, clean copy. Stated "First Edition." Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. A fine copy of the first printing. Entertaining and informative account of Bryson's travels in Australia. "Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door memorable travel literature threatens to break out. His previous excursion up, down, and over the Appalachian Trail (well, most of it) resulted in the sublime national bestseller A Walk in the Woods. Now he has traveled across the world and all the way Down Under to Australia, a shockingly under-discovered country with the friendliest inhabitants, the hottest, driest weather, and the most peculiar and lethal wildlife to be found on the planet. In a Sunburned Country is his report on what he found there--a deliciously funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance by a writer who combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiosity. Australia is a country that exists on a vast scale. It is the only island that is also a continent and the only continent that is also a country. Despite being the most desiccated, infertile, and climatically aggressive of all inhabited continents, it teems with life. In fact, Australia has more things that can kill you in extremely nasty ways than anywhere else: sharks, crocodiles, the ten most deadly poisonous snakes on the planet, fluffy yet toxic caterpillars, seashells that actually attack you, and the unbelievable box jellyfish (don't ask). The dangerous riptides of the sea and the sun-baked wastes of the outback both lie in wait for the unwary. It's one tough country. Bill Bryson adores it, of course, and he takes his readers on a rollicking ride far beyond the beaten tourist path. Here is a place where interesting things happen all the time, from a Prime Minister lost--yes, lost--while swimming at sea to Japanese cult members who may have set off an atomic bomb (sic) entirely unnoticed on their 500,000-acre property in the great western desert. Wherever he goes (and Bryson goes just about everywhere) he finds Australians who are cheerful, extroverted, and unfailingly obliging--the beaming products of a land with clean, safe cities, cold beer, and constant sunshine. On occasion the Aborigines, a remote and mysterious race with a tragic history, make a haunting appearance in this book. But by and large Australia is an immense and fortunate land, and it has found in Bill Bryson its perfect guide. Published just in time for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, In a Sunburned Country offers the best of all possible introductions to what may well be the best of all possible nations. Even with those jellyfish. / Bill Bryson's many books include, most recently, I'm a Stranger Here Myself, as well as A Walk in the Woods, Lost Continent, Notes from a Small Island, and Mother Tongue. Born in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1951, he lived in England for almost two decades. He now lives in Hanover, New Hampshire, with his wife and four children." - Publisher.

Flight Patterns
Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art 2001 091435776X / 9780914357766 1st Paperback NEW Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
159 pp., illus. (some col.), bib. notes; 26 cm. Catalogue of an exhibition held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, November 12, 2000 to February 11, 2001. BRAND NEW. Shrinkwrapped. "Flight Patterns highlights contemporary artists primarily working in the Pacific Basin--Southern California, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia--whose work addresses the specific topographical conditions and experience of living in this geographically and geopolitically dynamic region. As its conceptual foundation, Flight Patterns rethinks topographical practices of photography since the 1970s, looking at current manifestations of the topographical impulse in landscape-oriented work. The exhibition and its accompanying catalogue include new projects, recent work from the 1990s, and historically significant works of photography, film, video, and painting by 23 artists, including Doug Aitken, Rodney Graham, Anthony Hernandez, Tracey Moffatt, Paul Outerbridge, Allan Sekula, Miles Coolidge, Simon Leung. Flight Patterns introduces the work of West Coast American artists as well as those artists working in regions where there is a parallel history of landscapes and their representation, and where similar postcolonial issues are at stake. A landmark artistic, social, and geographical document, Flight Patterns highlights a diversity of artistic approaches--both formalist and conceptual--to one of the most fascinating and complex areas of the planet." - Publisher. CONTENTS: In the Field/On Location: Cornelia H. Butler; Locating: Paul Outerbridge, Anthony Hernandez; Document and Intervention: Allan Sekula, Center for Land Use Interpretation, Miles Coolidge, Christina Fernandez; Migration and Movement: Roy Kiyooka, Simon Leung, Simryn Gill; Wilderness : Rodney Graham, Gavin Hipkins, Rachel Khedoori; Land : Igloolik Isuma Productions, David Lamelas, Glen Wilson; Topographies: Tim Johnson, Lee Mullican, Caryl Davis, Doug Aitken, Yuk King Tan; Periphery: Laurence Aberhart, Tracey Moffatt, Michael Parekowhai; Topographies: Francis Pound; Just What Is It That Makes The Term Global-Local So Widely Cited, Yet So Annoying?: Lee Weng Choy.
