His second contribution to the Series, published together with a companion volume, "Crooked Cracked Tree In Fog" (the 60th title in the Series). "In the winter of 2009, Todd Hido was approached by elementary school art instructor Wilhelm Matthies about using his photographs in class for the students to work from as a source of inspiration for some of their own exercises. The resulting book of four watercolors by 3rd grade students shows some of the remarkable paintings generated by the class. Each copy of the book contains 4 reproductions of watercolors and one original photograph by Todd Hido" (Publisher's blurb). A brilliant project, very movingly realized. An absolute "must-have" title for Todd Hido 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 verso by Todd Hido. 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 rare signed copy thus. 4 color plates, 1 original print. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER TODD HIDO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1590022912. Bookseller Inventory #
