Invisible City. Photographs by Ken Schles. Excepts from writings by various authors. Twelvetrees Press, Pasadena, CA, 1988. Unpaged. First edition (limited to 2000 copies). Quarto. Library protected photo-illustrated dust jacket. Numerous gravure reproductions.

"An homage of sorts to Weegee's 1945 masterpiece Naked City, Invisible City is a grainy, dark, impressionistic portrait of urban life. Unlike Weegee, who made New York seem like a theater of sentimentality and cornball humor, Ken Schles wants to point to its spiritual poverty…Individually, the photographs range wildly in quality, but the book's layout and sequence give them a minor-key vitality and an unkempt brilliance."--Andy Grundberg, from the New York Times Book Review. Chosen by Mr. Grundberg as one of the ten best books of 1988. Beautifully printed in gravure.

Fine in a Fine dust jacket with only minor edge wear. A beautiful copy of an important and increasingly scarce book.
