Kin Subscription Series Number Two.

Kin Subscription Series Number Two. Photographs by Todd Hido, Abner Nolan, Marianne Mueller, and Alec Soth. TBW Books, 2009. 48 pp., Four volumes with four colour illustrations, 6x8".

'Kin Subscription Series Number Two' is a limited edition series, in its second year, that's comprised of four books (limited to 800 copies, including subscription copies of 650 unsigned and 50 signed copies).

Each book is hand numbered and its cover hand stamped. It comes wrapped in a slipcover measuring 6x8".

The publisher describes this book series like this:

"Four accomplished artists [Todd Hido, Marianne Mueller, Abner Nolan and Alec Soth] working in the photographic medium were invited to present an intensely personal and poetic exploration of their work to be released in the form of a book.

Each artist will be represented by one book in this four book series. Given complete creative control, these gifted individuals crafted powerful, surprising, and completely uncompromised works that implore the viewer to contemplate the relationships between images.

This series provides an unparalleled glimpse into the thinking processes of who we consider to be four of today's most exciting photo makers.
Last years' Subscription Series was recognized and collected by many prominent galleries and museums, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Yale University Art Gallery. An article about the series also appeared in PDN (Photo District News)."
