1st Printing. Signed. 16 pages. Published in 2005. Artist Book. The 30th 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 Stu Levy. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Stu Levy's "Cranial Czar, Eh?". One of the most arrestingly beautiful and remarkable collections in the Series ever, as Nazraeli keeps topping itself. "The title of Stu Levy's One Picture Book is also an anagram of the book's subject, Carl Chiarenza. Levy's 'Grid Portraits', in which multiple photographs of his subject, taken from various perspectives and distances, are combined to create one portrait have been exhibited widely and are featured in many important collections throughout the United States. Folds out map-like from its hardbound case" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Stu Levy collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such in pen on the Back Limitation Page, and is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in black fountain pen by Stu Levy. It comes with an original print that is delicately pasted over its duotone duplicate. The print can be lifted and removed, if so desired, without ruining the grid portrait or itself. 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. 1 oversize duotone plate, 1 original print. One of the finest photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN B000J5EQ10. Bookseller Inventory # 9655
