Hatje Castz Verlag, Ostfildern, 2011, ISBN:9783775725934 
BASQUIAT, Jean-Michel. Basquiat. (Editor: Dieter Buchhart and Sam Keller). (Ostfildern: Hatje Cantz Verlag, 2011). First Printing. Pp. (8),9-188,i-li of text,(5). Illustrated in full colour. Double column. 4to, white cloth with black lettering to front board and spine. A catalogue of an exhibition of Basquiat's works at the Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, May 9 - September 5, 2010. Curators: Dieter Buchhart and Sam Keller. "The American painter and draftsman Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) ranks among the most compelling personalities of recent art history. A self-taught artist from the New York underground, he at first made a living by selling painted T-shirts andxeroxed collage postcards in downtown Manhattan. Having won some acclaim f or his graffiti, Basquiat began exhibiting paintings and drawings as early as 1980. Two years later, aged just 21, he became a participant in Documenta. His friendships with Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Madonna are likewiselegendary. Inspired by music or by comic strips, Basquiat's powerful compo sitions combine the mundane with the magic of his own African roots. His works evince the same intensity, the same energy as did his own tragically short life. In the course of his eight-year-long career, Basquiat not only succeeded in creating a wide-ranging oeuvre of his own, but he also added some new figurative and expressive elements to the Conceptual and Minimal Art repertoire." -from the dustjacket. Contents: Glenn O'Brien - "Who Was that Masked Man?" ; Glenn O'Brien - "Basquiat and the New York Scene 1978-82" ; Dieter Buchhart: "Jean-Michel Basquiat: A revolutionary caught between everyday life, knowledge, and myth" ; "I have to have some source material around me: Jean-Michel Basquiat interviewd by Becky Johnston and Tamra Davis, Beverly Hills, California, 1985" ; Robert Storr: "What Becomes a Legend Most?".

SUMPRIM, Alba Kunadu. The Imported Ghanaian. (Accra: The author, 2006). Pp.(14),xv-xxiii,(1),[1]-264. Illustrated with reproductions of comic strips. 8vo, illustrated blue card covers with black lettering to front cover and spine.
"With her rose tinted glasses firmly in place, the Imported Ghanaian deluded herself, believing that she could simply walk into Kotoka International Airport with a grin like the winning ticket in the national lottery, and the band would strike up whilst the jubilant nation screamed, 'Akwaaba-o,akwaaba, our sister has returned back to us.'
She returned home thinking she was as Ghanaian as any other and that she would fit in snugly with the skills of a chameleon. The reality proved otherwise as she plunged headfirst into the endurance test of living in Ghana, where nothing is ever what it seems. Layer by layer, as if peeling an onion, each 'coming back home' cultural reality weaves her through a world where you can never be too sure, where an invitation is not exactly an invitation, where you have to die to find out how popular you are, and where being a Ghanaian and being Ghanaian are often two opposing concepts." -from the rear cover.
