1st Printing. Signed. 126 pages. Published in 2014. Retrospective collection of color photographs. One of the most important art photography books of our time. Review Copy of the First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only by a small fine press. A brilliant production by Craig Hickman: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Craig Hickman. Except for a (very) brief statement at the beginning and credits at the end, there is no text. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in China to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Craig Hickman's "Oxide". Photographs of ambiguous and ironic signs (all man-made) strewn throughout a desolate urban landscape. "A photo-graphic novel stripped down to setting. You can think of it as work by a photographer wandering the streets of a fictional city. There's lots of descriptive evidence (if you look closely) but not much explanation. It's a setting for a story without the story. Kind of funny, kind of sad, definitely askew" (Craig Hickman). Hickman's antecedent is surely Stephen Shore. But his intentions are quite different from Shore's: To chart through a visible landscape hints and emblems of an interior journey of the soul. An absolute "must-have" title for Craig Hickman collectors. This is a Review Copy, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in gold pen-marker by Craig Hickman. Laid-in is the Cover Letter, also very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed by the photographer. This title will become collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed Review Copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 0967589428. Bookseller Inventory # 19651
