Editors of Nazraeli Press & Parr, Martin. ONE PICTURE BOOK: 7 CUPS OF TEA. Tucson, AZ: Nazraeli Press, 2012. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 16 pages. As New.

Artist Book. The 74th title in the now-legendary "One Picture Book" Series by Nazraeli Press, one of the most superb ongoing projects of contemporary art photography. Limited Edition of 500 numbered and signed copies. Accompanied by one tipped-in, original print by the artist/photographer (hence the Series' name). An elegant production by Chris Pichler: Small-size volume format. Titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Martin Parr. There is no text. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Martin Parr's third contribution to the One Picture Book Series, an homage-of-sorts to the iconic British ritual, drinking tea (long since passed on to her former colonies as well). Beautifully captured and evoked in Parr's trademark saturated colors, "7 Cups of Tea" is a continuation of the exploration that Parr began with "7 Communist Still Lifes" and followed up with "7 Colonial Still Lifes". It marks a return to top form for the unsustainably prolific photographer. A "must-have" title for Martin Parr collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page. It comes with a stunningly beautiful original color print that is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on verso by Martin Parr. This title is an instant collectible. This is one of very few copies still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. 6 color plates, 1 original print. The most important and most influential living British photographer. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK AND MARTIN PARR TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1580053572. $70.00
