(BRISKI, ZANA). BRISKI, ZANA - ZANA BRISKI: BROTHEL - LIMITED BOXED EDITION SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Title: ZANA BRISKI: BROTHEL - LIMITED BOXED EDITION SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Description: New York, Mantis Editions., 2007, First Edition 1/1000. (ISBN: 0-9788754-1-9) Silk Over Boards, Boxed, Oblong 4to, np (130pp), 54 tritone illustrations. Designed by Zana Briski with Nashima Gokani and Jeff Magness. Limited to one thousand copies only, "Brothel" is the exquisitely designed and printed volume of Zana Briski's original photographs of the Calcutta house of prostitution that led to her 2005 Academy Award winning feature documentary film (and accompanying book) "Born into Brothels". Noirish and dark, it presents the photographer/director's arresting images of the girls and women at work there, and the squalid conditions they endure. Printed in tritone throughout, it incorporates two tipped-in plates as well as hand-made and colored papers + inks in a beautiful debossed black raw silk-over-boards binding with full black edges. It is housed in a hand made clamshell box covered in scarlet raw silk from India. One of the most sumptuously produced books we've carried in recent years, Zana Briski's "Brothel" is a compelling companion volume to Mary Ellen Mark's classic "Falkland Road". A brand new, pristine example SIGNED "Zana Briski" in gold ink on the title page still sealed in the publisher's shipping box, as issued.
