Weekly Giveaway – I like big books, and I cannot lie!

We’ll keep this short and sweet: If you like ’em big and brilliant, this book by photographer Andreas Gursky deserves space on your bookshelf. Of course you should keep it out in front for awhile to truly enjoy it. One of my favorite things here is that the size of the book gives a bit of respect for the image.
Did you know that his work has sold for the most money of any living photographer? True.

“The big, bold, seductive, and surprising color photographs of German photographer Andreas Gursky set forth a stunning image of our contemporary world of high-tech industry, international markets, big-time sports, fast-paced tourism, and slick commerce. Tracking the zeitgeist from his native Germany to such far-flung places as Hong Kong, Brasilia, Cairo, New York, Shanghai, Stockholm, Tokyo, Paris, Singapore, and Los Angeles, Gursky has earned acclaim at the leading edge of contemporary art with a polished signature style that draws upon a great diversity of ideas, precedents, and techniques. Created in collaboration with the artist, this oversize book surveys the fullness of his work to date with gorgeous colorplates, generous two-page details, and a wealth of supporting illustrations. The first in-depth study in English of Gursky’s art, this book was published in conjunction with a major retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. ”
