McGinley, Ryan (Photographer); Aletti, Vince & Wolf, Sylvia (Contributors). RYAN MCGINLEY: YOU AND I. Santa Fe, NM: Twin Palms Publishers, 2013. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 196 pages. As New/As New.

The photographer's debut retrospective monograph. Limited Slipcased Edition of 150 numbered and signed copies. Should not be confused with the Limited Edition of 8000 copies, none of which is numbered or signed. The edition sold out before publication and is now rare. A brilliant production by Ryan McGinley and Jack Woody: Oversize-volume format. Pale green cloth boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Ryan McGinley. Text by Vince Aletti and Sylvia Wolf. Blue cloth slipcase with metallic-silver titles embossed on the cover and spine. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Korea to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is vastly superior to the early catalogs that were first published by McGinley. In publisher's original shrinkwrap. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents, in its most collectible format, Ryan McGinley's first retrospective collection, and best book. The fact that this production took more than ten years to realize is a record-of-sorts in publishing history. Some collectors we know died between the time the edition was first announced, promptly sold out, and was finally released in 2013, an eternity by any measure. The waiting is over; here it is at last. "The artist has selected the best photographs from his first decade of work. He uses photography to break down barriers between public and private spheres of activity. A portrait of a generation that is savvy about visual culture and acutely aware of how identity can be communicated through photography" (Publisher's blurb). A "must-have" edition for Ryan McGinley completists. This copy is one of the Limited Slipcased Edition of 150 copies, indicated/numbered as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Ryan McGinley. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title sold out before publication, is no longer available from the publisher, and is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Slipcased Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. While it took more than ten years to produce, it is nevertheless the most collectible edition to own. A rare signed copy thus. 90 color plates. Winner of the "Photographer of the Year" Infinity Award in 2007. One of the most brilliant living American photographers. A flawless collectible copy.
