Artist Book. The 88th 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 Alec Soth. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Alec Soth's "Bogota Funsaver", his second contribution to the One Picture Book Series. A suite of color photographs that shares with us, informally, intimately, and unsentimentally, his return to Bogota. "Dog Days Bogota" (2007) is one of Soth's most beloved books. "Bogota Funsaver" is its lovely "family souvenir album" sequel. "In 2003, my wife Rachel and I traveled to Bogota, Colombia to adopt our baby girl Carmen. During our two months in the city, I made the photographs that would become my book 'Dog Days Bogota'. Ten years later, Rachel, Carmen, and our seven year old son Gus traveled back to Bogota for the first time" (Alec Soth). Affectionate and affecting, this book will become a contemporary classic. An absolute "must-have" title for Alec Soth collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such in pencil on the Back Limitation Page. It comes with a dream-like, evocatively beautiful original color print (of a sleeping dog) that is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on verso by Alec Soth. This title is now highly collectible, an instant classic. As a regular trade edition, "Dog Days Bogota" did not come with a print. This one does, and it's a beauty. This is one of very few copies still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 13 color plates, 1 original color print. Alec Soth's "Sleeping By The Mississippi" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the most brilliant living photographers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ALEC SOTH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1590054172. $150.00
