Broken Manual

Broken Manual

Description: SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, one of only 300 copies, signed by Soth and his alter ago Lester B. Morrison, housed in its own unique “book-safe”, and with a signed and numbered Soth photograph and booklet. WITH: A set of three limited edition zines (edition of 500) by “Lester B. Morrison” seen as preparatory work for Broken Manual. ?Created over four years (2006-2010), Alec Soth?s newest book represents a?significant departure from his previous publications. Entitled ?Broken?Manual,? Soth investigates the places in which people retreat to escape?civilization. Soth photographs monks, survivalists, hermits and runaways, but?this isn?t a conventional documentary book on life ?off the grid.? Instead,?working with the writer Lester B. Morrison, the authors have created an?underground instruction manual for those looking to escape their lives. ?It is common for artists to follow up the publication of their books with??Special Editions,? but in the case of Broken Manual, this edition is being?presented first. Made in an edition of 300, Soth calls this the ?Ideal?Edition? of Broken Manual. Each copy of the book is housed inside of?another, one-of-a-kind book. These signed and numbered ?shell? books are?unique and cut by hand. Inside the shell, there is also a small booklet?entitled ?Liberation Billfold Manifest? and an 8?10? print signed?and numbered by Alec Soth and Lester B. Morrison? (Little Brown Mushroom website). G?ttingen: Steidl, 2010. Quarto, original paper wrappers; housed in a ?book-safe? (a Renoir book). The zines are in their original wrappers. Fine condition. Rare.
Artist or Maker: SOTH, ALEC
