July 10, 2012 in artist books
I’ve been working on my post recapping my experience at the 2012 VSW Photo-Bookworks Symposium and realized I never told you all about one of my most recent book purchases! Nearly a month ago, I ordered a copy of The Invisible Book, 2nd edition by Elisabeth Tonnard.
“The Invisible Book is a book produced in limited edition at the affordable price of €0. It will work as a digital book too, on any platform. The edition is limited to 100 copies (neither numbered nor signed).
This is a product without a single fault, available at the lowest price possible. The book was made as a reaction to both the trend of decreasing booksales and the trend of increasing expectations from audiences.”
The 1st edition of the book sold out on the first day of the release, so when Tonnard announced the release of the 2nd edition I made sure not to drag my feet. Above is a screenshot of the PDF Invoice I was sent for my purchase. This is by far one of my favorite artist books in my collection. So smart.
Please note: personal info on the invoice was blacked out for the purpose of this post.
