Holes in the wall
For My Father’s, 2009
To go along with my unlimited printing of my book, Saint Petersburg, I have created this limited edition book, also entitled Saint Petersburg.
Only 5 copies made, this book features hand sewn binding, and hand-made silver gelatin prints. The prints were created from watercolor paper that I coated with emulsion that I made from silver nitrate, salt, gelatin, and alcohol. You can see the prints drying here.
Because this is a hand-made process, you can expect the prints to have flaws, which is another way to say they have character.
The book contains 10 of what I felt were some of the strongest images from the book Saint Petersburg sewn in.
13 pages, and the book is an even 1 foot by 1 foot in size.
I am currently placing one of the only 5 made up for auction on Ebay.
The auction is starting at $0.99 with no reserve.
If you win this auction, I am throwing in a copy of the machine printed version of Saint Petersburg for free!
Bid now and good luck!
