Jeffrey Ladd on Errata Editions

Errata Editions embarked on an exciting publishing project in 2008. The Books on Books series is a unique venture to bring out-of-print volumes from the canon of photobooks back to their audience. They are scholarly editions, seeking to approach a complete representation of the original edition, highlighting not just the work contained inside, but the object itself.

Series originator and Errata Editions Creative Director Jeffrey Ladd was kind enough to take the time to compose an essay on this venture, sharing his inspiration for the project, how it came to be, how books are picked and some plans for the future.

Lee Friedlander: Recent Western Landscapes 2008-2009

"For the last few years, many of Lee Friedlander's books have been beautifully and creatively packaged, containing and controlling Friedlander's seemingly chaotic aesthetic. As fans (and non-fans) may agree, his images appear lawless, but they are cleverly framed images within images, pictures within pictures. This newest book by Lee Friedlander is no different. He switches his lens to another subject—the western landscape—but these images are compositionally very similar to his cityscapes, self—portraits and even his The Little Screens series (likely even more so as there is a literal frame around the TV screen). Yet the repetition isn't monotonous." — Melanie McWhorter

from the book Shoshone Falls
from the book Shoshone Falls

Shoshone Falls by Thomas Joshua Cooper & Timothy O'Sullivan

"Shoshone Falls is on the Snake River in southern Idaho just across the border from Nevada and Utah. The Snake River side-winds its way westward from its headwaters in the Grand Teton Mountains in Wyoming through Idaho, Oregon, and Washington before spilling into the Columbia River on its way to the Pacific Ocean. Writing about this landscape makes me long to be more than an armchair traveler armed with a 15-inch screen on my laptop computer." — from the review by Mary Anne Redding of Thomas Joshua Cooper & Timothy O'Sullivan's Shoshone Falls
from the book Colstrip, Montana
from the book Colstrip, Montana

Colstrip, Montana by David T. Hanson

"David Hanson's photos of the coal-mining town and landscape of Colstrip, Montana, are as sobering now as they were when John Szarkowski chose to exhibit them at the Museum of Modern Art in 1986. A native of Montana, Hanson set out to document the disturbing realities of one of the largest coal mining facilities in North America and the town that supports it - located just 100 miles from where he grew up." — from the review by Sara Terry of David T. Hanson's Colstrip, Montana

David Taylor: Working the Line David Taylor: Working the Line—Signed

"In 2008, David Taylor received a Guggenheim Fellowship for his ongoing examination of the U.S.-Mexico border. His investigation is organized around the documentation of a series of 276 obelisks that mark the international boundary as it extends from El Paso/Juarez to San Diego/Tijuana. These monuments - striking objects situated in impossibly gorgeous and difficult terrain - were installed between the years of 1892 and 1895." — the publisher
