The lost lunar Baedeker : poems of Mina Loy by Mina Loy( Book )
25 editions published between 1982 and 1999 in English and held by 663 libraries worldwide
There was a time when it was common to couple Mina Loy's name with that of W.C. Williams or Marianne Moore: her advanced contemporaries considered her a literary and artistic genius - a descendant of Sappho by way of Emily Dickinson. But the public was scandalized by her work, and some critics openly scorned it. Not only were her Futurist-inspired techniques unlike anything most readers had encountered before, but her subjects - procreation, parturition, prostitution, suicide, addiction, retardation - were considered shocking even by some modernists. Mina Loy vanished from the literary scene just as dramatically as she arrived on it, and for most of the century her bold experiments have remained a well-kept secret. But in recent years Loy's work has been discovered by a new generation of poets and critics, and has begun to surface in revisionist anthologies. What has been needed is a reliable text of the essential Loy poems. To assemble The Lost Lunar Baedeker, Roger Conover has rescued Loy's poems and prose works from the Dada magazines and other ephemeral publications where they first appeared. All of Loy's notorious Futurist and feminist satires are included, as are many poems from her Paris and New York periods, the complete cycle of "Love Songs," and several previously unknown texts. Detailed notes accompany the text

Call me Istanbul ist mein Name : Kunst und urbane Visionen einer Metapolis ( Book )
7 editions published in 2004 in German and held by 69 libraries worldwide
Die eine Ausstellung im ZKM Karlsruhe begleitende Katalog biete Gelegenheit, sich ein Bild von der Megastadt Istanbul zu machen - ein vielfältiges Bild, dessen Teile von türkischen Künstlern, Designern, Architekten, Schriftstellern, Musikern und Filmregisseuren entworfen werden. Sie zeigen, welch intensiven Dialog sie mit ihrer Stadt und deren urbaner Struktur führen und ermöglichen die Begegnmung mit einigen der Signale, die von dieser Megapolis ausgehen -einem Ort der Orte, der nie aufgehört hat, sich zu verändern. Dabei entsteht nicht nur ein Abbild des realen Istanbul, hier spiegeln sich urbane Visionene von interkulturellen Lösungen für die Konflikte europäischer Städte und Metropolen von morgen
Vertical New Yorkers by Horst Hamann( Book )

Hamann collected this grab bag of vertical New Yorker to come in off the street and do the implausible - close their eyes before a stranger in broad daylight. He sees no freaks, not types. He see someone on the street and gives you her/his goodness. "These are not photographs of others. These are photographs of ourselves."--Roger Conover, back cover
