Salami by Hans Gissinger
One of the best parts of my job is the frequent stumbling upon of weird and fantastic things. My discovery for today? The monograph Salami by Swiss photographer Hans Gissinger and writer/big eater Gerard Oberle.
Published in 2001 by Woodstock Press, the print run for Salami was limited to 500 copies, each numbered and signed by Gissinger.
With 60 (arguably) beautiful photographic portraits of various salamis, with accompanying essays, I can only imagine this book would be a unique and memorable gift for anyone who loves meat and art. In fact, I wonder whether my colleague Richard, who delights in making his own sausage, would fancy a copy on his coffee table (vegetarian colleague Julie, however, blanched at the photos).
