Artwork description

Featuring Michael Kenna's haunting photographs of Huangshan, a mountain range in the east of China, this book presents over forty poems from the eighth century Tang Dynasty, an era regarded as the Golden Age of Chinese poetry. The mountain range has inspired artists and poets throughout Chinese history.

Kenna's twelve platinum prints are tipped in the bound book hors texte. An additional platinum print is tipped onto a loose sheet of paper housed in a paper portfolio that is blind embossed. The platinum prints were printed by John Marcy, and each of the prints is signed by Kenna. The book and the portfolio are housed in a decorative silk-covered clamshell box with the artist's name and the book's title stamped in black on the spine.

This copy is number 18 out of 60 numbered copies and 15 lettered copies hors commerce. It is signed by Stanton Hager, John Wood, Michael Kenna, and publisher Steven Albahari.
