(book) ; 25.7 x 32.4 cm (slipcase); sewn bound; tipped in image[s]; black-and-white; edition size unique; unsigned and numbered; offset-printed The original maquette for the artist's book / exhibition catalogue "Dreaming The Gokstadt : Northern Lands and Islands" by Thomas Joshua Cooper ultimately published in conjunction with a traveling exhibition that began at Graeme Murray, Edinburg, in 1985. This maquette features 25 tipped in silver gelatin photographs, pasted in text blocks, hand sewn covers, a protective overlay cover, and a slipcase hot stamped with title and artist. Includes texts by the artist, and quotes by Barry Lopez, Basho, and others. The title stems from a 1000 year old viking ship salvaged from a bog in the village of Gokstadt, Norway. The ship and its memory were the central focus of Cooper's four year project. This was the second book in a proposed cycle of five books by the artist. Very Good. Light lifting of tipped in cover photograph. Contents are clean and unmarked. Light rubbing of protective envelope and light scuffing of edges of slipcase. A handmade book with associated imperfections.
