The Postcard Maker (Pen-and-ink Postcards from Three Continents by Artist Lawrence Bohme)

Author Lawrence Bohme has been illustrating his own books and making pen-and-ink postcards for over 30 years, and on three different continents. His original drawings have been sold in book and card shops in New York, Paris and Rio de Janeiro, as well as published in his own travel books and memoirs. At last he has brought together over 100 postcards of the life and scenes of famous cities and little-known villages alike in a single volume, with a running narrative that tells about the subject of each drawing and how the artist's nomadic life led him to travel to it.

About the author...

Lawrence Bohme was born in 1942 in London, to an English mother and a German refugee father, emigrating to Vancouver, Canada, after the war. At age 14, Lawrence travelled to Mexico with his mother, who wanted to become a painter. It was in Mexico City that Lawrence learned to speak the first of his current five languages. The small family later lived in Jamaica, British West Indies, and in New York's Greenwich Village.

In 1960 Lawrence went on to study at the University of Madrid, where he acquired the second name of "Lorenzo", and later also at the Sorbonne in Paris. In 1965, finding himself in San Francisco, he sailed to Rio on a freighter to fulfill his dream of living in a favela, staying in Brazil five years. Always with the writing of a book about his travels in mind, he spent two years in Haiti and three years in Colombia, living also on the islands of San Andres, Grand Cayman, Saint Martin and Saint Barths, where he worked as a leather craftsman and pen-and-ink postcard artist.

He returned to Europe in 1981, becoming a translator for Unesco in Paris and eventually finding his way back to southern Spain. There, he settled in the olive-farming town of Montefrio and wrote several "artistic and historical guide books" about his village Montefrio and also Granada, the city of the Alhambra Palace. He has been at work for the past ten years on his memoir, "Lorenzo, The Story of a Very Long Youth", and has thus far completed seven volumes "each one the length of a normal-sized novel", which are published separately on Amazon. He is now working on the last three volumes of the series, which reaches its cataclysmic end in Paris, in the year 1983.

A journalist recently asked Laurence why he calls his book the story of a "very long" youth. The author explained that his youth went on much longer than is considered normal, given that it wasn't until the age of forty-one that an "emotional earthquake" forced him to finally start "growing up". He added, with a trace of irony, that the title also expresses his gratitude to "a God I can't help believing in for granting me so many years to make an ass of myself".

For many years a leather craftsmen, Laurence began by doing drawings of Caribbean islands to sell in his workshop, and when they "took off" he put down knife and awl and set out to conquer the world with his pen. You can read "The Postcard Maker" as an art book reflecting the work of a self-taught "drawer" as Lawrence calls himself, or as the free-wheeling adventure story of a curious and restless man who couldn't see enough of the world.

A Horological and Mathematical Defense of Philosophical Pitch

This is a short article written to copyright a pioneering idea in the realm of music theory. The problem with the concert pitch debate is that most every proposition has been subjectively reasoned, with no logical justification as to why any pitch makes more sense than any other. I note the origins of the second-hand in timekeeping and how they most sensibly relate to pitch frequencies in music based on the sexagesimal system to give us a further breakdown of time and measurement in tonality, which music is intended to do at its most fundamental. In this argument is a bit about why Five Limit Tuning is better than Equal Temperament, when it used with the Philosophical Pitch standard of C256 to make a new set of stacking thirds pitches in the chromatic scale so as to make their lowest octaves the very numerators and denominators by which every note in the chromatic scale is derived to begin with. Altogether a tight and cogent argument.

Themed Itineraries and Stories at the Università Cattolica

The Research Centre for Education Through Art and Cultural Heritage Mediation in the territory and in museums (CREA) of the Universita Cattolica publishes the e-book Themed Itineraries and Stories as a handy instrument to visit the topical places of the University. It is available both to the university community, which, in a sense, lives in the historical complex, and to those who, as external parties, are invited to take part in the cultural life generated here, as well as to visitors.

The suggested itineraries are the result of a research plan carried out by students and teachers of the Master in Education Services for Artistic Heritage, Historical Museums and Visual Arts; for them CREA represents a possible field of reference after the education received.

The e-book aims not only to bring art closer but, more radically, to live an experience though art thanks to a variety of relations that every work of art can create. Hence, the beginning of a dialogue which helps the interpretative research of the reality surrounding us, of the history of which we are part, of the alterity challenging us more and more, cooperating in order to create that laboratory for the transmission of knowledge represented by the University, which is a place institutionally and publicly designated for research and training.

Designs of the Town

Mr. SAKUMA, Makoto (a Japanese painter) has drawn hundreds of cover arts and illustrations for books, which span genres including mystery novels, science fictions, serious literatures, jidaigeki novels, how-to books, etc. His versatility and the awesome power of his expressions deserve special recognition.

A robot picture he drew attracted great attention, and it resulted in holding a solo exhibition at a gallery in Ginza, Tokyo. Since then, the exhibition has been held annually for more than 20 years. Then, the "Cats" series, developed through his exhibitions, was realized as a picture book series that he co-authored with Dr. MORI, Hiroshi, the legendary active novelist in Japan.

This interview session with Mr. SAKUMA includes many book cover arts, illustrations, secrets of his creations, and his life story. Also, Mr. Ryosuke Akizuki, the author of "The Gifted" series, is the guest interviewer.

This amazingly gifted painter named SAKUMA, Makoto is the one to be recognized globally.

These instructions are easy to follow for children or parents assisting their children. Instruction begins with one line or shape and continues adding one line and shape at a time.
