🎁 Luxe Art Book / Graphic Memoir: "Life? Or Theatre?" by Charlotte Salomon
Brand new, never read, hardcover/hardback book. I purchased this a couple of years ago after seeing the exhibition at the AGO when I was a teenage - the art was incredible and stayed with me forever. It comes in a cardboard box and I've never opened it. Overview: "This is my whole life," Charlotte Salomon said when she gave her doctor and friend the enormous suitcase containing her life’s work for safekeeping. Life? Or theatre? is the result of months of restless work in a small room in a hostel during which Charlotte Salomon appealed to everything inside her: her perfect visual memory, her insight into family and friends, her education at the Art Academy in Berlin and, most of all, the inspiration of her short but intense love for her stepmother’s singing teacher.That is how Charlotte created this singular work of art, a graphic novel avant la lettre, consisting of 781 gouaches and hundreds of drawings—a mixture of paintings, texts, and musical annotations—which together tell the story of a family between World War I and 1940. In more than one gouache, influences of George Grosz and Modigliani are recognizable, while others are foretastes of the contemporary graphic novel. The work shimmers with beauty and precision. This timeless masterpiece, now published for the first time in a complete edition including several recently discovered gouaches, is truly a unique work by an artist whose life inspired not only David Foenkinos’s internationally bestselling novel Charlotte but also a movie, a documentary, an opera and a ballet.Sold in an elegantly printed box, this deluxe edition contains over 1,300 color illustrations as well as illuminating essays on Charlotte Salomon's life and work by a close friend of the Salomon family and by curators of past exhibitions of Salomon's artwork. Featuring a revealing, recently-discovered letter from Charlotte Salomon to Amadeus Daberlohn, translated into English for the first time and with invaluable annotations by Salomon scholars Mary Felstiner and Darcy Buerkle, this edition of Life? Or theatre? is truly the definitive collection of Charlotte Salomon's work.

Apple MacBook Model A1181 w/ MagSafe Power Adapter
A beauty who got me through life and work back in the day. Formatted and ready for a new home. Battery could stand to be replaced as it doesn't last long when not plugged in, if I remember correctly. Trading as is (aka it's old and I haven't used it in years though I just turned it on and the welcome screen is raring to go!). Would be a great spare laptop for a kid whose #stayhome school program means spending the school day online. 😷 Contactless porch pickup in East York only. I can turn it on from a distance so you can see it works & wipe down with a Lysol wipe and leave for you to take.
