About One Picture Book Set from the publisher
So, we are excited to announce the launch of One Picture Book Two: an upgraded, upscaled follow up to our much loved One Picture Book series of artists’ books. Each title will be limited to 500 numbered copies, and will include a removable, signed, original print. The books will be a little bigger, with a fresh design. So, this set is from the new series and includes 4 books and prints from each artist.
About the books
Cats by Mark Steinmetz: Cats features fourteen never before published photographs of cats and kittens making themselves at home in Athens, Georgia. Beautifully printed on Matt art paper.
Requiem by Kenro Izu: The authority of Pompeii granted permission for Kenro Izu to remove a selection of copied casts in order to create photographic compositions at the Pompeii sites. In addition, the Pompeii authority permitted Izu to photograph the original human casts in the archive building as “portraits” of the people of ancient Pompeii. He created an imaginary scene of sometime after “the day”, when lives were extinguished by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Although, among the scattered dead, plants have started to grow once again.
Gas Stations 1982 – 1986 by Toshio Shibata: In the early 1980s, returning to Japan from a few years of traveling and living in Europe, Shibata began photographing night scenes of roadside Japan. Gas stations – especially in the dead of night – look more or less the same everywhere they are to be found. Yet their generic look can also provoke feelings of melancholy, even romance.
Darshan by Manjari Sharma: A series of photographically recreated, classical images of Hindu Gods and also Goddesses that are pivotal to mythological stories in Hinduism.
