Books in Search of a Good Home January 2018

I am selling some of my beloved booksI have collected these titles over the years in the hope that they would make me a better instructor, artist and human being. They have been my treasures, my guides and my friends. 

I have had many of them in my personal library for years. Due to space and various other issues (beyond my control), I have decided that they need to find new homes. I hope that you will treasure them and find the knowledge that I did in their pages.

I am extremely picky about the conditions of my books so consider them new (unless otherwise noted.) They are in excellent condition, free from markings, etc. HC is a hardcover book while PB is paperback. I can send extra photos (on request) for books listed with flaws. All books are exactly as described.

Shipping is extra. If you buy more than one book, I will combine shipping charges. For example, if you buy one book and the shipping is $5 and a second book and the shipping is $3, you will NOT be charged $8 but a flat fee based on the weight, etc... 

I will discount on combined purchases over $50 (in other words, if you buy more than one book.)

I guarantee that the books will be well packaged.

Insurance is extra, but recommended. USPS media mail includes free tracking.

Unless requested (and for an additional fee of whatever the actual shipping cost is), all books will ship via media mail.

Please note the shipping is for US residents. Outside of the US, please email me for a quote.

Please note that I will ship the books within 48 hours unless it's a weekend or I'm traveling to teach (if this is the case, I will let you know.) 

If I will see you in person soon, I can hand the books to you to save you shipping.

When a book is sold, I will mark it sold (and as soon as possible). I will offer a discount on combined book purchases. 

If you have any questions please email me at Egorey99@sbcglobal.net

Please email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net with BOOKS in the subject line and in the body of the email, the list of books that you want. I will then send you an invoice. Remember, if you buy more than $50 in books, I will offer you a discount on the overall price AND shipping. BUY MORE BOOKS, SAVE ON SHIPPING.

Thanks for looking and for giving my books a home.

Thank you for looking!


Barron Storey: The Marat/Sade Journals HC LEATHER MINT ORIGINAL TUNDRA EDITION Those of you who know me, know that Barron Storey is my favorite artist and all around geniune human being. (Before you think I've flipped my lid, I have more than one copy (and edition) of this book. I'm not selling those.) Every artist who keeps a journal, needs to know Barron's work (see it herehere, and here.) Many of your favorite artists have been taught and/or influenced by his work in some way. This edition can be very difficult to find and expensive. 

Barron Storey: Life After Black HC Book MINT DJ Bent at the bottom (not torn) "If you spend any time at all in this business talking with the practitioners of the field as I do, and especially if you tend to discuss influences and those lesser-known artists whose work deserves wider recognition, inevitably you will encounter the name Barron Storey. And with good reason. As a teacher, he's proven to be a primary--if not primal--influence upon a diverse group of noteworthy creators, including the likes of Dave McKean and Bill Sienkiewicz. As an artist, his work proves to be both mesmerizing and visceral, evidencing a command of technique and clarity of purpose that is simply stunning in its execution and scope. Without a doubt, he is one of the most gifted, even visionary artists of his generation. And yet, with the exception of his collaboration with Neil Gaiman on a tale of Despair in Endless Nights, much of his work is hard to find. True, there's always The Marat/Sade Journals, a nearly impossible-to-find [or afford!] art book which was issued by Kevin Eastman's glorious and long-defunct Tundra imprint, and a handful of publications issued by Vanguard, many of which are also becoming increasingly rare. Beyond that, there is a real and woeful lack of Storey's work which is readily available in print."-Neil Gaiman on Barron Storey (see what I wrote above in the first listing.)
