Presents Eduardo del Valle's and Mirta Gomez's second contribution to the One Picture Book Series. "Takes us on a rare and astonishing journey into the transformation of the human form after death. In the rural cemeteries of Yucatan, Mexico, the dead are not normally embalmed before burial. Typically, the remains are unearthed after three years in the ground and transferred to an ossuary or makeshift container for all eternity and for all to view. 'En Vista' offers a strikingly beautiful and memorable selection of 14 color reproductions and one original Type-C print from an original negative. The book opens with an insightful excerpt from 'The Labyrinth of Solitude' by Octavio Paz" (Publisher's blurb). One of their most hauntingly beautiful works thus far, this is a "must-have" title for Eduardo del Valle and Mirta Gomez collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such in pencil on the Back Limitation Page. It comes with an original print that is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on verso by Eduardo del Valle and Mirta Gomez. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. 14 color plates, 1 original print. Two of the finest living American artist/photographers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK, EDUARDO DEL VALLE, AND MIRTA GOMEZ TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1590052625. $100.00
