A Book of Books.
New Reduced-Format Hardcover Edition.
Photographs by Abelardo Morell. Preface by Nicholson Baker.
Bulfinch, New York, 2006. 108 pp., 52 duotone illustrations, 9x9".
A visual tribute to the printed word, this delicious ode to the book won awards and critical praise when first published in an oversized format in 2002.
Now in a smaller gift book format, Morell's elegant photographs of books highlight the grace and sensuality of the printed page. Unusual books are featured, like a leather-bound volume that is smaller than a paper clip, an impossibly large dictionary, and illustrated books whose characters appear to leap off the page. Morell has photographed the endless ocean of books in a library and the strikingly beautiful way in which weathered and water-damaged books take on sculptural form.
