MY LIFE WITH DICK - JEFFREY VALLANCE
'A sidesplitting chronicle of the inescapable influence of America's 37th President, Richard M
Nixon,on one of the art world's liveliest mavericks, Jeffrey Vallance.' Growing up in California
in the 1960's, Vallance became, seemingly inevitably, mildy obsessed by Richard Nixon. In 1990
after his offer to donate some of his artwork to the official Richard Nixon Library was met
with a cool reception, Vallance created his own
Richard Nixon Museum exhibition. This pocket-sized book contains a mixture of Nixonian ephemera, artwork
anecdotes in Jeffrey Vallance's unique
style - blurring history and mythology

FRONT DOOR BOOK - CLAYTON PATTERSON
Artist and activist CLAYTON PATTERSON has lived in New York's Lower East Side for
30 years, tirelessly documenting his
neighbourhood in photographs and video.
The front door photos were a long term collective portrait of
his neighbourhood, each week, he took hundreds of photos of local residents in
front of his grafitti encrusted front door.
This large format, full colour book reproduces
300 front door photos of families, workers, bowery bums, little kids
and local tough
guys, spanning a period during
which the Lower East Side has been massively
gentrified and many of the
predominantly hispanic residents have been displaced forever.
The photos are accompanied by Clayton's extensive
reminiscences of 30 years as a socially
engaged L.E.S. resident, his 1980s career as a designer of
unique baseball caps, curator of tattoo and
outlaw/outsider art exhibitions plus interviews with
local characters like grafitti artist LA2,
Keith Haring's mentor/collaborator now largely unrecognised and
CLAYTON PATTERSON'S FRONT DOOR BOOK is a
rare gem of a book,
crammed with a
wealth of information and seldom heard voices.
