Steidl staunchly proclaims, "NO!" The publisher has gone to the mattresses to defend the future of print through the recent publication of three amazing photography books – Outside Inside (Bruce Davidson), Parcours Muséologique Revisité (Polidori), and On the Road (Ed Ruscha)
Months ago, I posted about Bruce Davidson's Limited Edition Central Park in Platinum book with Verso. Now, Davidson-lovers can look forward to Outside Inside.
Outside Inside is...a sumptuous three volume box set with fifty-three chapters over 800 pages. Each chapter is introduced by a short text written by Davidson himself. The result is a celebration of the development of a master of the medium and an autobiography, a photographer’s life seen through his work.Parcours Muséologique Revisité, a three volume box set with 744 pages, of Polidori's documentation of Versailles over a period of 25 years.
On the Road, pairing Kerouac's original text with Ruscha's photographs:
The text is printed in Letterpress on 220g Hahnemühle paper and every one of the 55 photo-plates is blind embossed and tipped in by hand to create an exquisite and original edition of On the Road.
