The photographer's second collection. One of the most beautiful photography books of our time. The first and only edition. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now rare.

Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents David J. Carol's "All My Lies Are True". His even more brilliant follow-up to his debut: Some of the most tender, evocative, and humorous street and landscape photography one is likely to see. "A refreshing reminder that somewhere wanders the photographer, creating images of the mundane and the absurd. Showcases the beauty that allows photography to be the means of an adventure born of travel, humor, and intelligence, a journey that does not end once the shutter is released, but rather continues to develop into a diary of genuine and often humorous photographs. Serves as a vehicle for Carol's photographs rather than an object produced for the object's sake. Exemplifies the nature of photographs: Visual outward appearance is irrelevant. What truly matters is imaginative honesty, along with the acceptance that the journey never quite ends" (Photoeye). An absolute "must-have" title for David J. Carol collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed and inscribed in black pen-marker on the front free endpaper by the photographer: "For Paul, David J. Carol". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The recipient is Paul Berlanga, the Chicago-based painter and photography expert. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Carol did NOT sign most copies of the book. A rare signed copy thus. 43 duotone plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. . $50.00
