About Silver Meadows (B-Sides Box Set)
Todd Hido’s B-Sides Box Set is a follow-up publication to the artist’s award-winning 2013 monograph, Excerpts from Silver Meadows. Designed to function as a companion to that title as well as a sovereign object in its own right, B-Sides Box Set comprises 50 images printed on loose cards, presented in a 2-piece lucite box. The selection includes alternate images that didn’t make it into the book, as well as variations of images that did. The collection offers a behind-the-scenes look at how Hido selects and arranges images in book form. ‘Making good and interesting pictures is only half of what it takes to make a memorable visual book,’ Hido explains. ‘The way one organizes images to create a narrative sequence also plays an important role in creating something that people want to pick up and take home.’ This first printing of B-Sides Box Set is limited to 500 numbered copies.
