Son of the Box (limited edition of 500)
Our third publication on the work of Frederick Sommer, Son of The Box contains a stunning new selection of photographs, collages, drawings, musical scores and short texts by this living national treasure. Exquisitely printed in duotone and process color, the set of thirty-eight 6 x 6 inch cards is presented in a custom made wood-and-aluminum box, which doubles as a free standing display case. Frederick Sommer selected the works represented in Son of The Box from his own archives. The resulting collection spans thirty years of creative output, and includes images and texts published here for the first time. Now in his ninety-second year, Frederick Sommer continues to work in a variety of media; his active collaboration was essential in the editing and design process of this important new artist’s book.
Printed in 1996 in an edition of only 500 copies. Thirty-eight duotone cards enclosed in a two-piece custom box.
