1st Printing. Signed. 16 pages. Published in 2006. Artist Book. The 37th title in the now-legendary "One Picture Book" Series by Nazraeli Press, one of the most superb ongoing projects of contemporary art photography. Limited Edition of 500 numbered and signed copies. Accompanied by one tipped-in, original print by the artist/photographer (hence the Series' name). An elegant production by Chris Pichler: Small-size volume format. Titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Ron van Dongen. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Ron Van Dongen's "A. Angustatum". A triumphant achievement. "Adding a subtle twist to his first One Picture Book, 'Rosa Ferreus', Ron van Dongen follows up with 'A. Angustatum', a frame-by-frame recording of 'Arisaema Angustatum, 2001', in its transition from a tender, unassuming shoot to the mature Arisaema shown in all its full glory. Van Dongen is the subject of five monographs by Nazraeli Press, the first four of which featured his black-and-white work, while the most recent, 'Effusus', documents the artist's own transition to color work" (Publisher's blurb). One of the things that makes the collection so arresting is that the eroticism of the photographs (which may also be found in Ron van Dongen's "Rosa Ferreus"), is unmistakable yet ever-so-subtle. An absolute "must-have" title for Ron van Dongen collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, and it is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in pencil on the Back Limitation Page by Ron van Dongen. It comes with an original color print of "Arisaema Angustatum, 2001". This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The remaining copies from the publisher command $150. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce signed copy thus. 13 color plates, 1 original print. One of the finest Dutch artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1590051610. Bookseller Inventory # 11441
