|My obsessive tracing of Brooks' resonance throughout the 20th century helped|
land this image of the actress on the cover of this book. The Argentine
author was a huge fan of Brooks, as the LBS website showed.
|And look where this book showed up - on the hit television show Lost.|
|I put on an event with the acclaimed poet |
Mary Jo Bang when her LB inspired book
of poems Louise in Love was
published in 2001.
|I produced this triptych of limited edition autographed broadsides celebrating Mary Jo Bang's book |
and featuring Brooks' imagery.
|I also produced a limited edition autographed broadside featuring biographer Barry Paris and a bit of text from his book on the actress. This was issued at the time the LBS helped bring Paris' book and Brooks' Lulu in Hollywood back into print.|
|My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting the then George|
Eastman House in Rochester, NY to see the LB
centennial exhibit. What a great experience.
|I got to know Bruce Conner after he visited a small exhibit about the actress|
which I put on in a San Francisco cafe some years ago. Conner left this
note in the exhibit guest book. Later, when I visited him at his home
in San Francisco, he expanded on this anecdote.
|When I introduced Diary of a Lost Girl in Paris in 2009, fans of the actress (alas not me) lined up around the block.|
|I've had the pleasure of meeting a few fellow fans, like the|
charming English dressmaker Irma Romero.
|I also had the pleasure of meeting actor Paul McGann,|
who is also a big Louise Brooks' fan. McGann, who was the
Eighth Doctor Who, even told me he listened to RadioLulu.
