COX, ReubenThe Work of Joe Webb: Appalachian Master of Rustic Architecture. Photographs and Essay by Reuben Cox.(Highlands, NC: The Jargon Society, 2009). First edition, deluxe issue. One of only eight copies, signed by Cox and with an original photograph, also signed, housed in a specially made folder and slipcase by Heritage Bindery of Pasadena. The original photographs are contact prints, made from 8 x 10 inch negatives, on printing-out paper, which is then gold-toned. The paper that Cox used to print these images is the same kind of paper that Atget used, a kind of paper that is no longer manufactured and that has become quite rare; it was the severely limited quantity of this kind of paper that was available to Cox that determined the size of this deluxe issue. Published as Jargon 105. The regular edition of this title sold out. As new. Large 4to, approximately 10 x 12 inches, original cloth, handmade marbled paper dust jacket with leather label on spine, cloth slipcase.(more)
