"The title of Stu Levy's One Picture Book is also an anagram of the book's subject, Carl Chiarenza. Levy's 'Grid Portraits', in which multiple photographs of his subject, taken from various perspectives and distances, are combined to create one portrait have been exhibited widely and are featured in many important collections throughout the United States. Folds out map-like from its hardbound case" (Publisher's blurb). A "must-have" title for Stu Levy collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such in pen on the Back Limitation Page, and is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in black fountain pen by Stu Levy. It comes with a silver-gelatin print that is delicately pasted over its duotone duplicate. The print can be lifted and removed, if so desired, without ruining the grid portrait or itself. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies still available online and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 1 oversize duotone plate, 1 original print. One of the finest living photographers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
