A new series of publications made by and for artists on a traditional newspaper press in the UK - full bleed images beautifully printed in tabloid and broadsheet formats offering a tactile and immersive experience - to have and to hold, in print. The philosophy, concepts and history of the artists and their work - their ethos - can be explored online, allowing the print experience to stay almost entirely visual.
Monographic publications illustrate particular series and projects, often accompanying International Museum exhibitions and installations. Large print runs enable an accessible price for each publication, designed to serve the widest public audience.
A purely visual experience, the publication explores just a fraction of the dynamic photograms made by William Klein in 1952 - his earliest darkroom experiments inspired by abstract architectural mural paintings that he made in 1951. First exhibited at the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles in Paris (1953), they prompted Vogue art director Alexander Liberman to hire Klein and facilitate his return to New York, where in 1954 he conceived his seminal first 'city' book of street photography, followed by Rome, Moscow and Tokyo.
