1st Printing. Signed. Unpaginated. Published in 2012. The artist/photographer's breakthrough collection of digitally-altered color photographs. The First Hardcover Edition. Published in a small and limited print run of 1000 copies. The book is very beautifully produced, with pictorial hard boards, a definitive Essay by Aline Amithson, and color photographic reproductions by Tom Chambers that are printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Tom Chambers' "Entropic Kingdom". His debut, here are Surrealist-inspired images that are dark and disturbing yet mystical and awe-inspiring at the same time. Potent and dream-like, each is a fully realized visual metaphor of "images that emerge from just beyond the evocative threshold of conscious understanding" (Aline Amithson). Individually and as a whole, they offer new insights to the American Surrealist vision previously mined by such artists as Jerry Uelsmann and Arthur Tress. An absolute "must-have" title for Tom Chambers collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Tom Chambers. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Gallery Price List, which gives a pretty cool idea of how much the photographs in the book command as original prints. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing with Gallery Price List available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Almost all other copies available online have serious flaws yet command as much as $250. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. One of the most brilliant American artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 0980104491. Bookseller Inventory # 19923
