The first of a two-part collection, which are unquestionably, two of the most stunning in the entire Series. "The work in these companion books is from of a series of images by Steve Pyke celebrating the beauty and attraction of the working tool, in these instances, focusing on instruments that may be used at a birth and to carry out an autopsy. When Pyke was invited to photograph the 'Post Mortem' tools by Guy's Hospital in London, he thought it would be interesting to also show tools used at the other end of the life cycle. The images in 'Post Partum' were shot at The Children's Hospital of New York. Despite the fact that medical practice has advanced enormously since those times, medieval tools are still in use. Birth tools are utilized to intervene in a natural process, to help bring a new life into the world. The tools at a post-mortem are a means of establishing or confirming the cause of death, they are used after a life has ended. Born in England, Steve Pyke has been working as a staff photographer for The New Yorker Magazine since 2005. He has worked for many of the world's leading magazines, and his photographs have been widely exhibited in the United States, Europe and Japan" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Steve Pyke collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such in pen on the Back Limitation Page. It comes with an original color print that is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in black pen on verso by Steve Pyke. 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. 12 color plates, 1 original print.
