Folio. 108pp. Pictorial boards. Illustrated throughout; 71 colour reproductions of Maisel’s work. Some moderate rubbing to boards’ edges. Internally pristine. The following is a quote from The New York Times’ 2008 review: “Library of Dust, from the photographer David Maisel, may well be this year’s most haunting book of images. It is a collection of photographs of copper canisters, each containing the unclaimed remains of a patient from a psychiatric hospital in Oregon (the same one used for filming “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”). Rivulets of chemical corrosion, almost oceanic in their intense coloring, run down the sides. Mr. Maisel’s book is a fevered meditation on memory, loss, and the uncanny monuments we sometimes recover about what has gone before.” Scarce.
