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 cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Javier Carrillo. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Javier Carrillo's "Las Trocas Angelinas, con sus Mercancia". One of the last four concluding titles in the Series. "Javier Carrillo created a suite of 6 'suicide prints', a type of linoleum print considered to be the single most difficult form of multicolor printing, each featuring what is a common sight across this country and many others: A small, well-worn pickup truck filled to the breaking point with tools or merchandise. In Carrillo's prints, the pickup trucks with their humble yet priceless cargo - used wooden pallets, freshly-picked oranges, lawn-mowing equipment - become almost heroic in their stoicism, and one can't help but draw a comparison between them and the burros that they have replaced. The original, signed photograph included with each copy of the book is one of the snapshots Carrillo made as a sketch for his finished studio prints" (Publisher's blurb). "My life, society, and culture have given me much to think about, but I am able to express only a small amount of it with words. I prefer to express myself through my artwork" (Javier Carrillo). An absolute "must-have" title for Javier Carrillo collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such in pencil on the Back Limitation Page. It comes with an original color print that is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on verso by Javier Carrillo. The print, which is beautiful, is considerably larger than usual at 4 X 6 inches. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 6 color plates, 1 original print. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
