A Book of Books.
Photographs by... Preface by Nicholson Baker.
First Edition. “What unites all books, as Abelardo Morell is able to document in these magnificent photographs… is their interdimensional ambiguity. Does the printed page inhabit two dimensions, or three, or four?” [From Baker’s preface.] Superb photographic essay on the physical nature and cultural meanings of the book. This copy signed by Morell on the publisher’s bookplate mounted on the half-title.
