Item Description: Verso Limited Editions, Santa Barbara, 2009. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Limited Edition. In 2009, fine press photography book publisher Verso Limited Editions released Magnum Founders: In celebration of 60 Years: Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger, and David Seymor. Limited to 75 copies worldwide, the hand-bound collection contains sixteen original platinum prints (twelve bound prints - three from each photographer - and four free-standing that are suitable for framing - 2 by Henri Cartier-Bresson and one each from Robert Capa and George Rodger). Each print is estate stamped and designated as the BAT with the Henri Cartier-Bresson signed in full on the recto by Martine Franck, the widow of Henri Cartier-Bresson. This is the only copy signed by Martine Franck. The Cartier-Bresson stand alone prints were not included in the offering. These prints were presented to Stan Klimek, the platinum printmaker of the edition by the publisher after the edition was released. The Cartier-Bresson prints in Magnum Founders as well as the two free standing prints are the only authorized prints from the Cartier-Bresson estate issued since his death in 2004. Commissioned by Magnum Photos, the book was published in cooperation with the estates of the four photographers and contains a foreword by Elliott Erwitt, renowned photographer and past president of Magnum Photos. The book and prints measure 14 x 16 inches (portrait). All images in Magnum Founders were hand printed in platinum by Stan Klimek on Fabriano Artistico, a traditional 100% cotton watercolor paper. Each print is then individually stamped by the photographer¿s estate with the Cartier-Bresson prints signed by Martine Franck on the BAT copy. The text of Magnum Founders is composed in Walbaum and Helvetica Neue by the Press & Letterfoundry of Michael & Winifred Bixler. It is printed on 100% cotton Hahnemühle Photo Rag by Michael Russem at Kat Ran Press. Each book is hand-bound in quarter-leather by Mark Tomlinson featuring distinctive red Japanese crepe endsheets, red leather endbands and a unique cover construction of black and red laminated paper boards. Designed by Skolkin + Chickey, the collection is encased in an English buckram clamshell and presented in a custom-crafted walnut box suitable for display. Each handcrafted book presents some of the most defining images of each photographer¿s oeuvre. Robert Capa earned the title ¿The Greatest War Photographer in the World¿ after his photographs of the Spanish Civil War. The book features Capa's famous "Falling Soldier" image taken in 1936 on the Córdoba front during this conflict, as well as his World War II photograph documenting the first moments of the Americans landing on Omaha Beach. Cartier-Bresson was fascinated with painting, and particularly interested in surrealism. The prints in Magnum Founders include his playfully subversive group portrait of Valencian entertainers taken in 1933, as well as a stunning view of Muslim women on the slopes of Hari Parbal Hill, praying toward the sun rising behind the Himalayas. George Rodger¿s pictures of the London Blitz brought him to the attention of Life magazine, and from 1939 to 1945 he was one of the magazine¿s war correspondents. The book includes one of his London Blitz photographs of a young boy wearing his tin helmet with pride. The collection also features two photographs from Rodger's work in Africa where he spent decades documenting tribal life. Known for his compassionate treatment of his subjects, David "Chim" Seymour photographed children particularly well. Magnum Founders features a 1948 portrait of a young Polish orphan who was traumatized by her experiences in German concentration camps making a troubled attempt to draw a picture of her home. The book has been signed by the 55 current Magnum Photographers. There are four free standing prints that measure 14 x 16 inches and are suitable for framing. The book, case, and prints are in FINE condition. Bookseller Inventory # 000071
