Limited edition info
The 'Passage to Angkor' Deluxe Edition of 50 includes a signed and numbered book, and an exquisite signed and numbered platinum print of one of Izu’s most popular images, reproduced on the cover of the book. The platinum prints were made by Kenro himself to his exacting gallery edition standards... in fact, a second internegative had to be made for printing as the first did not yield the desired tonal range Kenro wanted (image size is 8 1/4 x 11 7/8 inches on 11 x 14 1/2 inch hand-made Arches fine art paper). The book and print are presented in a high-quality custom-made clamshell portfolio box, covered in fine green cloth with the title stamped in gilt on the 'spine' (produced by PortfolioBox, Inc.). Since the print is larger than the book, the clamshell case was designed with two 'spacers' to create a recessed area in which the books rests, with the print resting on top (protected in a heavy mylar sleeve with tissue guard). The price will increase in increments to $2,000-$2,500 (last few copies), as it sells out.
