  • Julianne Moore at the Crillon Hotel, Paris (2010) is set in the deeply luxuriant interior of the Crillon, an 18th Century masterpiece of neo-classical architecture, renowned for its display of delicate sculpture and extraordinary wood panels. In sheer lingerie but otherwise fully dressed with a belt, shoes, stole, and bedecked with jewellery, Moore looks caught in a moment of intimacy. Her gaze, however, holds us, confronting us with our desire as we become lost in the drenched flash lit moment, highlighting Moore's sensuality and the opulence of her surrounds.

  • Edition of 175
  • C-type print on Fuji crystal archive supergloss paper
  • 60 x 50 cm

  • Lara Stone (2010) sees the model reclining in swathes of black tulle and chiffon, a slick of satin flowing from the ceiling across the floor. Stone rests contemplatively as though a patient sitter for a Joshua Reynolds painting. The feeling is of a bygone time when days passed more slowly. Her gaze is momentarily diverted away from the camera, suggesting we have caught her in a moment of private thought, yet her body remains obediently fixed in an almost porcelain doll like pose.

Maxwell Anderson - Ten Days in July

This book is kind of a post script to the earlier See You Soon.

Following on from the book See You SoonTen Days in July documents
Jun's 10 day visit to London one year after she returned to Tokyo.
Through photographs and personal emails, Ten Days In July briefly steps
in to an endearing relationship which is forever disrupted by the turmoil
of long distance.

When the couple were separated, they thought they would never see
each other again. The four months they spent together would remain a
memory. However, the strength of their love for each other prevailed.
The book begins with a short email dialogue, catching the torment of
being so far apart. But when re-united, it is evident through the
photographs that being together comes naturally, although in some
cases, looking closer at Jun's expression, the complexity of the
situation haunts the atmosphere.

Published in an edition of 100 copies, each numbered by Anderson, the
book also has one page torn out from each copy.

Sebastien Girard - Desperate Cars special edition

I blogged about the release of this book a few days ago and my copy arrived this morning - really quick service!
The reproductions are of a very high standard throughout and a purchase od the standard edition would be recommended.
This is the special edition that has a different cover and comes with this signed and numbered print.
This is number 51 of 100, so if they are being sent out sequentially they are selling out really fast - get you copy now while you can - buy yours here.

Jonathan Safran Foer - Tree of Codes

This book has been getting a lot of attention and I'm not surprised.
There is a nice microsite from the publisher Visual Editions that has lots of detail about the ideas behind and production of the book.
I ordered my copy direct from the publisher and I may have just been unlucky, but I had really terrible service - you may be better off trying to get a copy elsewhere.
