The special edition of The Drawer by Vince Aletti is limited to 100 copies. This exclusive edition showcases a tantalizing secret cover and comes enclosed in a sleek black plastic bag, reminiscent of the iconic concealment bags used at newsstands for adult magazines. Each bag is individually numbered and personally signed by the author.
American critic and curator Vince Aletti has been collecting photographs printed on the pages of magazines and books since the 1970s. For the very first time the hundreds of tearsheets, newspaper clippings, gallery announcements, and other ephemera stacked in a drawer of an antique flat file in his East Village apartment have been documented in the book The Drawer. The 75 multi-layered compositions created by Aletti are a celebration of the beauty of photography and the printed page, as well as testimony of the author's unique ability to voice the complexity and variety of desire, personal and collective histories, and the power of art to reflect and shape who we are.
