Notes
  • Cover title.
  • "Stephen Verona's photographic series in the book ... draws focus to human subjects and creates appealing narratives though clever and calculated juxtaposition of the human figure. Using [these] photographic paintings, or 'vistas,' as subject matter, [the printers] sought a way to enhance these photographs within the context of an artists' book through the use of typography, structure, and design format. [The printers] scanned images of [their] wood type and framed them with book cloth to use as the cover-panel text. [They] termed these wood type images 'Scanotypes' ... In RRR-FTS, the subjects were photographed over a 35-year period and are now recreated using modern digital capabilities ... [The printers] decided to repeat the title of the book on each page to reflect ancient origins of an unbound book"--[Introduction].
  • Edition limited to 200 copies.
