Printed in tritone on thick coated stock paper by Trifolio in Verona, Italy to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Re-presents, in the ultimate collectible format, Bruce Davidson's "Time of Change", possibly the greatest photography book on the Civil Rights Movement. "Intimate and revealing portraits of Dr. Martin Luther King, John Lewis, and other leaders. Describes the mood that prevailed during the Civil Rights Movement with a lyrical imagery that is both poignant and profound. Gives testimony to the struggle for freedom, equality, justice, and human dignity" (Publisher's blurb). "Unfolds like a great political drama, beginning in New York in 1961 and ending in the South during the mid-1960's marches. The ability to enter so sympathetically into what seems superficially an alien environment remains Bruce Davidson's sustained triumph. He becomes the friendly recorder of tenderness and tragedy" (Henry Geldzahler). An absolute "must-have" edition for Bruce Davidson collectors. This copy is one of the Deluxe Slipcased Edition, and it is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Bruce Davidson. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It also comes with a stunningly beautiful 10 X 8 inch original silver-gelatin print of "Mother Brown", the cover image, also very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in pencil on verso by the photographer. This edition is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Deluxe Slipcased Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 140 tritone plates, 1 original print. One of the greatest living photographers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BRUCE DAVIDSON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
