published in 2011, in San Francisco, California by Dana Dana Dana
in a special small edition of 23 • current price is $3000 (subject to change as the edition sells out)
Each 11"x14" hand crafted book features high-quality digitally printed reproductions of photographs of American author William S. Burroughs (b. 1914 - d. 1997) shot in London, England in 1972, and in New York, New York, USA in 1975. The book also contains photos of writer Brion Gysin, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, and Rolling Stone Magazine journalist Robert Palmer. Many of these photos have never been seen or published before now.
This book uses the latest digital papers and printing techniques to reproduce the rich, lustrous surface and tonal range of traditional chemically printed black and white photographs. The pages are made of heavy papers and archival inks that have been developed to mimic the silver gelatin prints that Charles Gatewood created in the darkroom throughout his career as a photographer.
BURROUGHS 23 is currently priced at US$3000 and is limited to 23 copies (plus 2 AP copies).
As of March, 2012 there are 4 copies of the book remaining. Price is subject to change as more copies are sold.
Please note: Charles is making a special offer with the first 3 copies - the book + 3 11x14 silver gelatin of images from the book, signed by the artist. These 3 photographic prints allow those collectors who are interested in silver gelatin photographs the opportunity to compare the genuine, original black and white photographic process with the digital prints included in the book. The special price for the book + 3 photographs is US$3000, these 3 books are numbers 1- 3. (SOLD OUT)
The final copy of the edition, #23 is considered to be the most emblematic and desireable copy of the entire edition - as such it is currently priced at $5000.
