Erica Van Horn and Simon Cutts, 8 old Irish potatoes, Tipperary: Coracle Press, 2011

Potatoes and Ireland, what more is there to say—quite a lot as it turns out, and a whole bunch of it's here! 5 pages at 3.5" (h) x 3.5" (w) and open 1ft 5.5".

Stephen Skidmore, Avenue Crescent: The Rain Paintings of Stephen Skidmore 2005-2008, Tipperary: Coracle Press, 2011

Painter of the small moment, the same urban view seen over and over again, often through windows and rain. Simon Cutts calls him a "garret-artist" and I would agree, adding that he's served this role with distinction out there in Acton, West London for a long time now! 5 pages, 4.5" (h) x 3.75" (w), open 1ft 6.75".

Coracle, Brancusi's Sewing Box and other implements 1923-1957, 2012, Tipperary: Coracle Press

Musings on the domestic artifacts that belonged to the artist and how little value was attached to them by the market place, despite the artists' "All Sculpture is Furniture," call. This accordion should be seen in combination with Coracle's "After Brancusi," accordion book (2010) see below. 5 pages, 4.5" (h) x 3.75" (w) open 1ft 6.75".

Van Horn, Erica and Simon Cutts, After Brancusi, Tipperary: Coracle Press, 2010

A succinct summary of Brancusi's art & life & art. 5 pages 4.25" (h) x 3.5" (w), and opened 1ft 5.5".
