Spanning Edward S. Curtis's The North American Indian, Volume One, through David LaChapelle's La Chapelleland - this book, ostensibly about photographic books from the 20th century, is really "a study of environments we've built to house the objects that mark the mindscapes of our collective lives." The ultimate criteria for selection is that a book had to be a thoroughly considered production: all its elements blending to a natural fit, and constituting the intention "to fix the floating chain of signifieds in such a way as to counter the terror of uncertain signs." Includes essays by Richard Benson, May Castleberry, Jeffrey fraenkel, Daido Moriyama, Shelly Rice and Neville Wakefield. Catalogue prepared by Vince Aletti and David Levi Strauss.
