About this Item

1st Printing. Signed. 77 pages. Published in 2007. Exhibition Catalog. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run of 1000 copies as a softcover original only. A Limited Edition was issued simultaneously, using the same materials that are significantly enhanced with deluxe binding and a selection of original prints. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now rare. A brilliant production by Jess Mott: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Art Shay. Introduction by the great playwright/novelist/screenwriter David Mamet. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition of the same name held at the Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago from March 9 through May 26, 2007. Presents Art Shay's "Chicago Accent". A representative and delectable sampling of Shay's huge body of work, culled from an incredible output of over 25, 000 published photographs, many of which are now in the Permanent Collection of National Portrait Gallery of Art Washington, DC. The Catalog includes classic images that have previously appeared (notably the iconic Nelson Algren photographs) as well as images that appear for the first time in catalog form. It ends, heartbreakingly, with "Harmon In The Snow, 1955", a portrait of his son (and Nelson Algren's godson), who died in 1972 at the age of 21. "Art Shay's photography shakes you up, sets you down gently, pats you on the head, and then kicks you in the ass" (Roger Ebert). An absolute "must-have" title for Art Shay collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Art Shay. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 45 plates. One of the finest American photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ART SHAY AND LEE BALTERMAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
