Alex Webb, Artist’s book (1989)

An experiment in an alternative kind of book-making, Dislocations is a technology-mediated 55-page accordion-fold artist’s book by the Magnum photographer, Alex Webb.

Inhabiting a place somewhere between the unique book-as-art/art-as-book and a traditional press-bound publication, Dislocations was released in an edition of 40 signed and numbered copies, plus 10 artist’s proofs.

The covers and leaves were assembled by hand, and the photographs were printed using state-of-the-art digital imaging technologies on Hammersmith Permanent paper glued into a blind debossment on Somerset Velvet parchment.
