Instructo Activity Kit:  The Classification Game
3 Instructo Activity Kit: The Classification Game
Philadelphia, PA, Instructo Products, 1966, Boxed Set Very Good 
This is a boxed set of four cardboard brightly colored scenes that fit together to stand up in a three dimensional display: a toy collection, clothes closet, zoo, and grocery. Each scene has twelve printed cards of images that go with the scene. The game has no instructions, but apparently the object is to classify the image cards into the correct scenario. Does the bunny go in the grocery store, or the closet? Very cool 1960's graphics. The printed cardboard is quite thick and heavy. Box is 11 1/2"w x 9"h x 3"h and has some taped tears and a masking tape label on it. 132373

Dali, Gomez De Liano, Ignacio
20 Gomez De Liano, Ignacio Dali
New York, Rizzoli, 1994, 0847805220 / 9780847805228 Oversize Hardback Fine Good 
Book is in excellent condition with lightly bumped upper corner as only blemish; text/interior is clean and free of marking of any kind. Dust jacket has 5" closed tear from bottom spine up along spinal crease, otherwise very clean with no other tears. From the flyleaf: From the 1920's to the present, Spanish artist Salvador Dali has maintained a reputation as the master magician of contemporary art. His alien and nightmarish images stimulate the viewer's imagination with extraordinary power attracting each new generation by the force of his hallucinogenic inspirations. This publication is a delight and a revelation for aficionados of Dali and offers new insights into his art and life. For those approaching Dali's work for the first time, it provides a perfect introduction to the cosmos as it is seen and interpreted by this self-proclaimed master of the 'Paranoic-Critical.' Dali's art was and remains controversial. It has infuriated and enchanted both layman and art critic but it remains undeniably memorable. His painting of soft watches is one of the great icons of the twentieth century. Dali's detractors label him as a money-mad charlatan while his advocates praise him as the greatest painter and draftsman since the days of the Renaissance. Dali acknowledges and capitalizes on both viewpoints with equanimity. Dali's visual language is virtuosic and his range of imagery is protean. There is not one field in the visual arts that he has not explored successfully: painting, sculpture, graphics, book illustration, jewelry design, scenography. He is even acknowledged as an essayist and novelist. His influence in all areas is staggering and the pages of this book explain his ever-fresh popularity with art lovers of all ages and all tastes. Whether the subject is inspired by Freud or the Bible, alchemy or science, or from Classical mythology or nuclear physics, Dali's art remains unforgettable. 139 illustrations, 122 in color, including many full page plates. Wrapped in clear plastic cover. 134494
