Book Description Chronicle Books, San Francisco CA, 2008. Boards. Book Condition: Near-Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Issued Without Jacket. First Edition. This is a huge book of photographs Maisel took over several years of canisters containing the remains of cremated individuals at the Oregon State Hospital. Brilliant colors and strange forms appeared on the copper canisters in a short period of time, and Maisel has shot close-ups. One is compelled to turn the pages, soon forgetting what one is actually looking at. With essays by Geoff Manaugh, Terry Toedtemeier, and Michael S. Roth explaining the physics and metaphysics. Decidedly cool. Laid in, on a sheet of the photographer's notepaper, is a signed "with my compliments" note. Near-Fine in boards without dust jacket as issued, with minor bumps and wear to the corners. Signed Enclosure. Book. Bookseller Inventory # 3758
