Exhibition Catalog. Collection of the photographer's ongoing work on subject. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Stephen Daiter Gallery: Regular-sized volume format. Pristine-white softcovers, as issued. Photographs by Gary Schneider. Biographical Information appended in front and List of Plates appended at the back. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. In integral pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine and large flaps, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago from April 27 through June 2, 2001. Presents Gary Schneider's "Botanical". Lyrical studies of gossamer beauty. There are actually three categories: "Botanicals", "Specimens", and "Intestinal Flora". Began in 1989, the Series is intended as an homage to 18th- and 19th-century botanical studies. "Fervid examinations that combine to illuminate the nexus of art and science where they intersect the human structure and spirit" (Stephen Daiter). An absolute "must-have" title for Gary Schneider collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed and dated in pencil on the title page by Gary Schneider. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. This is one of few such signed copies of the Exhibition Catalog still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. 26 full-page, richly toned black-and-white plates. One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy.
