"ALL BOOKS OF TADANORI YOKOO - THE COMPLETE WRITINGSNo place stated, no date (at least in English) - Bilingual text. The title of this comic book sized format with glossy pages is a bit of a misnomer. As the essay at rear states: this item "includes only publications written, edited, planned or overseen by Yokoo himself, either as the sole author or with co-authors or editors..." In other words it is a list of Yokoo ublications to date, not a collection of actual writings. With four books per page and descriptive texts in Japanese and English. This item does not appear on Yokoo's website or anywhere else we can find on the net. The likely publication date is the early 2000's.

The former represents one million years stretching backward from the year Kawara made the set. The latter stretches forward one million years. These pages fill ten leather binders; each binder holds two hundred pages, and each page contains five hundred years. To make the calendars, Kawara developed a cut-and-paste technique, gluing columns of single digits to typed and photocopied grids of numbers so that, for instance, 500 to 1 BC easily became 1500 to 1001 BC. He then photocopied the whole page to conceal the glued areas and placed the pages in transparent plastic sleeves."

NEW HARDCOVERFarrar, Straus and Giroux / 2016 / 384 pages / ISBN 0374151326(See also, the simultaneous publication: SERIOUS BIDNESS: THE LETTERS OF RICHARD BELLAMY)A man with a preternatural ability to find emerging artists, Richard Bellamy was one of the first advocates of pop art, minimalism, and conceptual art. The founder and director of the fabled Green Gallery on Fifty-Seventh Street, the witty, poetry-loving art lover became a legend of the avant-garde, showing the work of artists such as Mark di Suvero, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, Donald Judd, and others.Based on decades of research and hundreds of interviews with artists, friends, dealers, and lovers, Judith Stein's Eye of the Sixties recovers the elusive Bellamy and tells the story of a counterculture that became the mainstream.
NEW HARDCOVEREdited and with an introduction by Miles Bellamy.Brooklyn, NY: Near Fine Press; Printed by Small Editions, Red Hook. 72 pages, cloth. ISBN 978-0-692-51867-0. Two facsimiles, three photographic illustrations.This selection of twenty-two letters written by the renowned art dealer Richard Bellamy (1927-1998) highlights his great sensitivity to the needs of the artists he represented, his special brand of humor and his literary predilections. The letters cover the year 1965, when he closed the Green Gallery — a showcase for many who would become the most important artist of the second half of the 20th century — to the last weeks of his life in 1998.Included are letters to art collectors and patrons such as Virginia Wright, Vera List and A. Alfred Taubman, and letters concerning the artists Mark di Suvero, Walter De Maria and Yayoi Kusama, among others. There are also four letters written to his son, Miles Bellamy which draw a kind of narrative of their relationship. Miles Bellamy’s introduction and notes expound on that relationship and describe the contexts in which all the letters were written. Appended to the main text are Richard Bellamy’s essay on the painter Myron Stout, the only previously published writing by the dealer, as well as documentation of a posthumous reading of Bellamy’s letters at the New School in October, 1998.
