About this Item

1st Printing. Signed. 16 pages. Published in 2008. Artist Book. The 50th 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 Rob McDonald. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Rob McDonald's "Birthplace". A triumphant achievement. "When Eskine Caldwell died in 1987, his place in the history of pop culture was already assured. The bare-woods house outside the small town of Moreland, Georgia where Caldwell was born in 1903 serves as the subject of Rob McDonald's book. 'Walking around the house, looking at the shelves of Caldwell's books, the case of memorabilia, I tried to forget about the celebrity. I found myself reflecting on how surely place shapes identity, how it inspires a worldview, how memory and imagination begin before we know it' " (Publisher's blurb). The pictures are quietly beautiful in the most evocative, "memento mori" way. An absolute "must-have" title for Rob McDonald collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such in pencil on the Back Limitation Page. It comes with an original color print that is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on recto by Rob McDonald. 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. 11 plates, 1 original print. One of the finest artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1590052307. Bookseller Inventory # 14102
