Cracked: The Art of Charles Grogg (A set of three "Reconstructions" and a handbound, oversized, book of platinum prints)
Cracked: The Art of Charles Grogg (A set
Charles personally printed the three loose and ten bound platinum prints for "Cracked: The Art of Charles Grogg" on Japanese Gampi Torinoko, a paper now unavailable since the death of its Japanese maker. It is perhaps the most rare and luxurious paper we have ever seen used in platinum printing. The three loose prints known as "Reconstructions" are large 20" x 24" works that are each constructed of nine original solar exposed platinum prints, all sewn together to create the final image. One of these loose prints also includes additional hand-sewn elements. Three of the ten platinum prints in the book include a hand-sewn application by the artist. All prints, bound and loose, are fully signed by the artist. Delivered in a custom case. Includes a DVD of John Wood reading and discussing the original poems he wrote to accompany each image.

But they are indeed strange, strange in a way the work of absolutely no other photographe...

Graham Nash's original lyrics for 17 of his internationally acclaimed songs are included here, beautifully reproduced as facsimiles of their original state: scribbled on hotel letterhead, written on pages torn from notebooks, jotted down on flea market stationery.

The elegantly reproduced lyrics in "Love, Graham Nash" are accompanied by 21 photographs (printed by world renowned Nash Editions) of friends, family and fellow musicians, each of which is imbued with a striking and unique sense of presence. Part poetic documentary, part cultural artifact, this perfectly crafted fine press book is truly a work of art in its own right.
