Artwork description

Mont-Saint-Michel is a French islet on which stands an immense Benedictine abbey built, slowly, between the 11th and 16th centuries. This book portrays the Gothic beauty of Mont-Saint-Michel through Michael Kenna's ethereal contemporary photography and Henry Adams' stately turn-of-the-last-century prose.

Fourteen photographic platinum prints of Kenna's work are tipped in to the book hors texte with an additional platinum print loose in a paper portfolio printed with the title and the artist's name. The prints were made by John Marcy and are all signed by Michael Kenna. The book features an introduction by John Wood and a critical essay by Lance Speer.

This book is number 53 out of an edition of 60 numbered copies and 15 lettered copies hors commerce. It is signed by Michael Kenna, John Wood, Lance Speer, and publisher Steven Albahari.
