About this Item

1/50. Small folio. [8], LXI, [7]pp. Original 3/4 leather over black silk covered boards with gold lettering on spine. Title page signed by Michael Kenna. The original signed print is laid in a clover paper encasement within a folio covered in fine silk. The book, print, and folio are cased in a clamshell (13 x 9") of a striking high-grade black silk, with a 3 x 2 3/4" tipped-in image of a cross. For years Michael Kenna has been recognized as one of the world's leading photographers, an artist with so great a grasp of place that his way of seeing Stonehenge, Versailles, Easter Island, Hokkaido, and elsewhere has become "our" way of seeing them. Kenna has now turned his eye to Mont-Saint-Michel where light dawns through graceful arches, cascades down stairways and roadways, wraps itself around 900 year old Gothic architecture in a delicate embrace as it seeps into otherwise impermeable stone to illuminate it from within. Kenna has indeed created the photographic portrait of the island and its architecture, a body of work which rivals and complements Henry Adams' classic Mont-Saint-Michel and Chartres, the famed book which is the verbal portrait of the Mount (from the publisher). The print image (of the castle atop the mountain) is 4 1/2 x 4" (the window that reveals it is just slightly larger) and is on a page measuring 10 x 7", anchored on the side. On the bottom, it is signed, dated, and numbered out of 50. The book measures 8 x 12" and contains 64 duotone plates (including frontispiece and two vignettes). This copy is one of 50 issued as a signed deluxe limited edition, of which this is No. 33 (total edition of 2,000). In custom slipcase. Slipcase in very good, clamshell box, book, print and folio are in fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 36305
