From the publisher: "With the publication of A Dialogue With Solitude, Lumiere Press has reached a unique milestone in our history - our first unlimited-edition publication. This is, however, a book with a remarkable pedigree, a meticulous production history, and, in keeping with the traditions of the press, a distinctive, hand-made variant edition. In 1961, Dave Heath assembled the photographs that he had been making throughout the fifties into a poetic sequence. The original plan for a book, as he envisioned it, would be a large format, akin to LIFE magazine. When the book was eventually published, in 1965, it was reduced in size. Nevertheless, A Dialogue With Solitude was a landmark in photography -- it quickly went out-of-print and for the last thirty years has been highly sought by collectors. The new Lumiere Press edition is the rebirth of a classic. Using the maquette from 1961, and the set of master prints, the book has been restored to the format of Heath's original design. The eighty-two images were printed in Berlin in the Novatone(r) process -- an exceptional offset technique that preserved the photographs' brilliant tonal scale. The binding cloth and endpapers duplicate the original binding. In every way this book is the fulfillment of the artist's creative aspirations. To mark the new edition, a thoughtful perspective was provided in a brief contribution by Robert Frank." Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 102063
