Published through TWB Books subscription series.
Todd Hido ohio
Subscripton = $100 (4 books total)
The Subscription Series published by Oakland's TBW Books (the brain child of Paul Schiek) features a collection of indiviual books by these four great photographers: Todd Hido, Marianne Mueller, Abner Nolan, and Alec Soth. A paid subscription of $100 gets you a new 6"x8" book every three months. Book quantities are limited to 650 unsigned subscriptions and 50 signed subscriptions... Very nicely printed and could develop into a healthy collection. My only gripe is that the pages are too thick/ cardboard like which makes flipping through it not as enjoyable.
Below is the first book in series 2 features photos Todd Hido took as a child, edited together with recent photos taken with the same camera.
About the subscription series
Four accomplished artists working in the photographic medium were invited to present an intensely personal and poetic exploration of their work to be released in the form of a book. Each artist will be represented by one book in this four book series. Given complete creative control, these gifted individuals crafted powerful, surprising, and completely uncompromised works that implore the viewer to contemplate the relationships between images. This series provides an unparalleled glimpse into the thinking processes of who we consider to be four of today's most exciting photo makers.
The Subscription Series is a limited edition, hand numbered book series that will not be available in stores. Subscribers will receive one book every three months beginning December 1st. Book quantities are limited to 650 unsigned subscriptions and 50 signed subscriptions.
This year's series will come wrapped in a slipcover and will also feature a size increase, with new dimensions of 6x8 inches. Each component of every book will be printed and assembled proudly in Oakland, CA. We recognize the value of keeping resources within the community, and are committed to doing business with like-minded, independent printing professionals.
Last years' Subscription Series was recognized and collected by many prominent galleries and museums, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Yale University Art Gallery. An article about the series also appeared in PDN (Photo District News).
Our subscription book series and format is a novel idea to the photo world. By offering these books only as a set, we seek to preserve the relationships and dialogues that take place between them. Viewed as a collection, these intimate artifacts weave a wide, complex portrait of our world. We choose to offer this series only through mail delivery because we feel the work deserves a careful first viewing away from the retail environment.
