Description: (POP-UP / MOVABLE BOOKS.) John Pfahl. Piles: A Pop-Up Book by John Pfahl. 5 photographic screenprint pop-up illustrations of various piles of objects (wood, salt, hay, snow, sand) from different locales. Small 8vo, original brown cloth. number 39 of only 50 total copies. (Buffalo, New York, 1974)

Notes: A scarce limited edition by the American photographer best known for his "Altered Landscape" series. Of the concept of piles, Pfahl states: "Ansel Adams had his beloved Sierras. I seek out the more elusive mountains on the lake plain near my home in Buffalo, New York. I try to imbue these piles of raw and recycled materials, through judicious use of light, atmosphere and scale, with the majesty of mountains I recall from summers in the Rockies and the Alps"--from the artist''s website johnpfahl.com.
