A City As Once Seen
by Stuart Klipper
Description

This book includes 27 original archival pigment prints in a wide-field format. Five of these photographs fold out to a magnificent 10” × 31”. The book is hardbound in silk and paper, and includes prose and poetry by five prominent New Orleans authors and a forward by George Slade, artistic director of the former Minnesota Center for Photography. The text is typeset in Archer, a beautiful and unique new typeface from the Hoefler & Frere-Jones type foundry of New York, letterpress printed by hand on Hahnemühle velvet duo paper. The book is housed in an finely-crafted and durable slipcase that is hand wrought from old New Orleans heart pine weatherboards – rebirthing scraps that were salvaged from the city’s wreckage. The book was designed and printed by Colin Frazer here at The Press at Colorado College. The price is $1150. A City as Once Seen: Photographs by Stuart Klipper is an edition of only 40 books. This edition is expected to sell out quite quickly, so please call or email to reserve your copy today.
