Vintage Works, Ltd., a member of I Photo Central, has announced the publication of its first limited edition book, which is entitled: Marcus Doyle: Night Vision/Intimacies of an Unblinking Eye. Twenty-six photographs by Doyle will be reproduced in full color and will be accompanied by an essay by Matt Damsker.
The book will be offered in a special edition, which will be hardbound and slip-cased and will come with an 8 x 10 inch signed photograph and be limited to only 100 copies (ISBN 0-9771415-1-9), and a softbound edition, which is limited to 1,400 copies (ISBN 0-9771415-0-0). Both versions of the book will be available October 15, 2005 and can be preordered by newsletter readers at $460 for each special edition hardbound/slip-cased version with photograph (regular price after October 15th is $500, plus $10 for shipping/insurance, which will go up $100 with each 20 copies sold) and $30 for the softbound copy (regular price after October 15th is $39.95, plus shipping). As a special incentive, shipping will be included in the softbound prepublication price. After October 15th, shipping will be additional. Call 1-215-822-5662 to place your orders by credit card.
To quote Matt Damsker's essay: "The photographs of Marcus Doyle transform the familiar spaces and landscapes of the modern world into twilight zones--nearly surreal, almost alien, yet always recognizable for what they are."
