Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 288 pages. Published in 2014. Artist Book. One of the most beautiful Artist Book productions of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. A brilliant production by John Gossage and David Chickey: Oversize-volumes format. There are three volumes, in three different trim sizes, with pastel-color cloth board designs and titles on the spine, as issued. Photographs by John Gossage. Original writing by Marlene Klein. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in (where else) Italy to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is sublime. In publisher's original plastic wrappers. The latter is completely integral to the edition because it is pasted in front with a matching design and titles on printed paper yet is not shown as such in stock photos online. Without DJ's, as issued. Presents John Gossage's and Marlene Klein's "Pomodori a grappolo". The Italian title means "Tomato Cluster". Which, in this case, is "a set of three inter-connected books by photographer and bookmaker John Gossage. Each book gathers images made in Northern Italy and Sardinia between 2009 and 2011, and each includes a text by Marlene Klein. The written pieces - two stories and one epilogue - have been created in response to Gossage's pictures, and reflect the 30 years that Klein has spent living and working in Venice. An unexpected approach runs through all the details of the books, from the way elements repeat, or don't, to the choice of materials and color. Since these three books are each a different trim size but include photos that are reproduced at the exact same size, the collective project functions as a study of the way that ink-on-paper can inform perception. The resulting objects are classic Gossage-clever, unique, and engrossing" (David Chickey). An absolute "must-have" title for John Gossage collectors. Each book in this three-book set of "Pomodori a grappolo" is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by John Gossage. They are all signed directly on the pages themselves, not on tipped-in pages. Please note: Gossage did NOT sign most copies of the books. This title is an instant collectible, and will become a contemporary Artist Book classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed set available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. Please note: The integral plastic wrapper (which comes with a matching design and titles printed on paper but for some reason, is not shown in stock photos online) is completely intact. A rare signed set thus. One of the most brilliant living artist/photographers. A fine collectible set. ISBN 1934435848. Bookseller Inventory # 19846

Synopsis: Pomodori a grappolo is a set of three interconnected books by photographer and bookmaker John Gossage. Each book gathers images made in Northern Italy and Sardinia between 2009 and 2011, and each includes a short text by Marlene Klein. The written pieces-two stories and one epilogue-have been created in response to Gossage's pictures, and reflect the 30 years that Klein has spent living and working in Venice. An unexpected approach runs through all the details of the books, from the way elements repeat, or don't, to the choice of materials and color. Since these three books are each a different trim size but include photos that are reproduced at the exact same size, the collective project functions as a study of the way that ink on paper can inform perception. The resulting objects are classic Gossage-clever, unique and engrossing. A limited edition of the books, held together with magnets in a "disorderly" way, further explores these concepts.

Product Description: pomodori a grappolo is a collection of three interconnected books by photographer and bookmaker John Gossage (born 1946). Each book takes the form of a visual short story based on images made in Northern Italy and Sardinia between 2009 and 2011, and includes a short text by Marlene Klein, written in response to Gossage's pictures, which reflects the 30 years that Klein has spent living and working in Venice. As much a photographic essay as it is a study in the way the book can inform perception, these three books--individually titled The Girl at the Crossing, Nullo and Sideways Glance--are each a different trim size, but contain roughly 50 photos each that are all reproduced at the same image size.
