124 volumes total 100 titles + five multi-volume deluxe sets, and duplicates of several titles. Each book is one of 500 copies, with an original photographic print tipped in, signed on the verso by the photographer. 124 Volumes 100 titles + five multi-volume deluxe sets, and duplicates of several titles, several labeled AP for Artist's Proof. A complete run of the celebrated series, which features 100 uniformly sized books of various colors, giving each artist a 16-page canvas to exhibit a cohesive body of work.
Each volume is limited to 500 copies, and each contains one photographic print tipped in and signed by the artist--hence the name of the series. Conceived in 1998 as a way to make original art more affordable, titles were originally released in groups of four, generally twice a year beginning in 2000 and ending in 2017, with most copies reserved in advance for subscribers. Complete sets of the 100 titles are uncommon, as many volumes are out of print; even more uncommon are those with the deluxe box sets, as few were issued toward the beginning of the series. All volumes are Near Fine or better. Several volumes with light spine sunning or a slight shelf lean.
The deluxe sets are by John Gossage (Four American Photographs), Todd Hido (Taft Street), Eduardo del Valle & Mirta Gomez (Four Sections of Time , all marked as "AP, " or artist's proofs), Judy Gelles (Beach Boxes) and Emi Anrakuji (e hakagi). Terri Weifenbach, Instruction Manual No.
