In 2005, fine press photography book publisher 21ST Editions released Toward Omega. Limited to 60 copies worldwide, the hand-bound collection contains 11 original silver gelatin prints (ten bound and one free-standing silver gelatin print that is suitable for framing). Each print is fully signed by Vincent Serbin with the free standing photograph entitled "Omega Point #54" also signed in full on the rectro. This copy, 4 of 60, was presented to Lance Speer (21ST Editions Contributing Editor and Director of Marketing) upon completion of the project. John Woods observes in his introduction, "Serbin has illustrated le phenomene humain, the great evolutionary road we traverse from apes to angels, our progress toward the Omega Point, our monumental history." From the Publisher: "An art publication of 21ST Editions, Toward Omega, is illustrated with original silver gelatin photographs printed and fully signed by Vincent Serbin. These mystical images are accompanied by the metaphysical poetry of prize-winning, contemporary poet Daniel Westover, commissioned specifically for this volume and printed in letterpress on handmade papers. Uniquely bound in a patina copper binding, this 14 x11 inches volume offers our collectors the rare opportunity to acquire a large body of Vincent Serbin's work presented in the completely unique surroundings of a finely crafted book." The book features a graphically designed patina copper cover that incorporates part of the Greek "Omega" character. It is encased in a cream clothbound case that bears the same character, embossed, with the title stamped in copper. Each of the 10 silver gelatin prints is signed, dated, and numbered on the border. The free-standing silver gelatin print is housed in a folded, letterpress printed presentation folder. Measuring 14 x 11 inches, the book is also signed by Vincent Serbin, Daniel Westover, John Wood, and the publisher, Stephen Albahari. A Letter of Provenance from Lance Speer is included. The book and prints are in As New condition still in the publisher's original shipping case. Bookseller Inventory #
