The bare-woods house outside the small town of Moreland, Georgia where Caldwell was born in 1903 serves as the subject of Rob McDonald's book. 'Walking around the house, looking at the shelves of Caldwell's books, the case of memorabilia, I tried to forget about the celebrity. I found myself reflecting on how surely place shapes identity, how it inspires a worldview, how memory and imagination begin before we know it' " (Publisher's blurb). The pictures are quietly beautiful in the most evocative, "memento mori" way. A "must-have" title for Rob McDonald collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, and is numbered 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 recto by Rob McDonald. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of few copies still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 11 plates, 1 original print. One of the finest living artist/photographers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1590052307. $100.00
