Thursday 24 April 6.30 pm at Stills Gallery, Cockburn Street, Edinburgh. Talk and book signing organised by Beyond Words: Phil Bergerson: American Artifacts. Free event.
We are very pleased to welcome Phil Bergerson from Canada who will talk about American Artifacts which has just been published by Black Dog. Bergerson describes his approach as “sifting through the remains of a culture, through the shards of artifacts left behind by a rushing humanity as it made its way through the streets of a tumultuous America”. The book includes text by photographer Nathan Lyons and by Canada’s leading writer Margaret Atwood. The talk will be followed by a book signing.
This event is free but please book a space here.

There's also news of a forthcoming title by John Gossage in which Martin Parr acts as a guide to locations in England and Wales, and the first in Triplekite's new series Land/Sea.
Please have a look at the recent special issue of our newsletter which features a range of remaindered titles selling at about a third of their published price. There's also information about a selection of secondhand books we are selling on behalf of some of our customers. Some titles are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Others - long out-of-print, signed and/or first edition - are being sold by a blind auction, deadline Monday 31 March.
Our latest newsletter - published today - includes titles by Tom Wood, Anders Petersen, Antoine d'Agata, Danny Lyon, Nan Goldin, Sze Tsung Leong and Cristina de Middel. We have already received enough customer orders to fulfil our quota of signed copies for de Middel's book but you can still order an unsigned copy.
There's also news of recently rediscovered signed copies of Fay Godwin's Landmarks.
In early April we will be getting a limited quantity of signed copies of Cristina de Middel's latest book Party: Quotations from Chairman Mao TseTung. As this book is a limited edition of only 750, and her previous publications, such as the celebrated Afronauts, have gone out of print very quickly, you are advised to place an early order.
A couple of years ago, Andy Sewell produced The Heath, his wonderful series of photographs of Hampstead Heath, which went out of print very quickly.
He's produced a new book, Something Like a Nest, which investigates the English countryside and its multiple and often contradictory meanings. For the moment, he's just produced a limited edition of 100 copies. There are just half a dozen copies left so order now if you want one. All purchasers of the limited edition will be acknowledged in the trade edition, which is due out in a couple of months time and which, of course, will be available from Beyond Words.
