CONFETTI #25: "I don't know about you, but I practise a disorganized religion . . ."; Limited Edition, Signed Silkscreen Print. Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. CONFETTI #25: "I don't know about you, but I practise a disorganized religion . . ."; Limited Edition, Signed Silkscreen Print.
(Lexington, KY: Origami Express), 2004. First edition. One of 68 copies SIGNED and numbered in pencil by Vonnegut. One-color silkscreen print on white Coventry cotton paper measuring 11 x 15 inches. According to Vonnegut, "Confetti is Origami's response to the in-your-face lack of meaning or message in so much modern art, starting, perhaps, with Mondrian, and of course excluding the strikingly communicative Cubists, but surely including the intellectually and morally blank works by the so-called 'Abstract Expressionists.' Origami says to the latter, with pictures as didactic as this one, 'If you have absolutely nothing to say to anybody, can't you please shut up?'" Fine.

FEMALE POLICY DETECTED: Or, the Arts of a Designing Woman Laid Open. E. Ward. FEMALE POLICY DETECTED: Or, the Arts of a Designing Woman Laid Open.
London: Printed for the Booksellers, 1812. Originally published in 1695, this little book (a little larger than 3 x 5 inches) reveals designing women's secrets -- "Teaching: 1. Of her allurements, Inconstancy, Love, Revenge, Pride and Ingratitude. 2. A pleasant and profitable Discourse in defence of married men, against peevish, fretful and scolding Wives; with several notable examples of the Mischiefs and Miseries which have attended their Lust and Pride. 3. A true character of a virtuous Woman, or Wife indeed." Small, 32mo. 95 pages. Cover worn (appears to be original) and pages considerably darkened but readable, with some foxing and water staining. We note one other online (1835) with a woodcut frontis, which apparently did not appear in this edition. There is, however, an enlightening news item pasted inside the rear cover elucidating a 1770 law enacted by the English Parliament against obtaining husbands under false pretenses, i.e., using "scents, paints, cosmetic washes, artificial teeth, false hair, Spanish wool, iron [iron?], iron stays, bolstered hips, or high-heeled shoes." Oh my. CONVENIENTLY POCKET-SIZED.
