GEDDES, Gary. Swimming Ginger. (Fredericton, N.B.) : Goose Lane, (2010). First Printing. Pp [1]-93,(3). Illustrated. Oblong small 8vo, illustrated brown card covers, French flaps. "The Qingming Shanghe Tu scroll is one of themost famous works of Chinese art. Assumed to have been painted in the 12th century by Zhang Zeduan, it depicts in surprisingly realistic detail an an cient cityscape, where peasants and hawkers, merchants and scholars, monks and mandarins contend in an urban labyrinth of streets, river, boats, bridge, and palanquins. In this compelling suite, Gary Geddes performs an amazing act of poetic ventriloquism, not only giving voice to painter and underprivileged alike, but also conjuring the droll, exacting and turbulent life of this ancient city. Designed to intertwine the visual East with the colloquial West, Swimming Ginger juxtaposes a text that reads from left to right with a stunning reproduction of the complete Qingming scroll whose narrative is best read from right to left." - from the front flap. Very good. 12.50
