[Michael Snow] 3 titles: (1) Cover to cover. Michael Snow.

(Photos by Keith Lock and Vince Sharp. Halifax/ New York, Novia Scotia College of Art and Design/ New York Univ. Press, 1975), unpaginated, original wrapper, 22.5 x 18 cm.

Bottom corner of spine bumped and lacks a piece of backstrip there; several other minor defects, but inside entirely acceptable. Lovely artist's book, with the only text being the copyright of the artist and the Library of Congress Catalogue card number. An entirely photographic story which is "tilted" at a certain point only to continue upside down, or to be browsed through from the "back cover" to the front. Parr/ Badger, The Photobook II, p. 156: "(...) In short, Cover to Cover is a veritable Russian doll of representational strategies, a complex, multi-layered work about photographic making and meaning." (2) Film Beeld Bulletin 3. Michael Snow <-> (Back and forth). Tentoonstelling van een film. R.U. Groningen, Instituut voor Kunstgeschiedenis, 1976, (4),49 p., photographic illustrations, original wrapper, large 8vo (wrapper partly sunned). And with 1 more on the same (exhibition catalogue of Museum Boymans-Van Beuningen, 1979). (total 3)
