Hardcover, 5 1/2 x 7 1/4, 16 pages, 6 four-color plates, 1 original print.

We are delighted to announce the publication of this the seventeenth title in our One Picture Book series, faturing work by the internationally acclaimed British photographer Martin Parr. Parr has long been fascinated by Communist countries, and by their artifacts in particular. This small but perfectly presented selection of six color images vividly depicts a range of food - from a plate of luncheon meat to a gloriously decorated cake - together with the necessities of life: a toilet roll, a bar of soap, a (dripping) Ì tap. An original print, tipped-in, makes up the seventh still life. The photographs were taken between 1999 and 2002 in Cuba, Latvia, Lithuania and Kazakstahn. Not all these countries are still under Communist rule but the subjects of Parr’s still lifes still survive. Martin Parr is a Magnum photographer whose work has been extensively exhibited and published worldwide. Printed in an edition limited to 500 numbered copies, each book has with an original print signed by the photographer. Sold out.
