Doubleplusgood Books is pleased to announce the release of a brand new book from photographer Stuart Woodman entitled Abstract Polaroids. It is a 12 page, full colour mini-book, produced in a hand numbered limited edition of 100 and is available to buy over at the Doubleplusgood Bookshop for £4.50 + P&P.
Abstract Polaroids is the fourth title to be published by Doubleplusgood Books and the second by artist Stuart Woodman. Following on from his acclaimed debut Now We Are 30, Woodman's latest book presents us with a collection of abstract images that explore the fundamental elements of photographic reproduction: light, chemistry and technology.
With echoes of Rothko's paintings and Wolfgang Tillmans experiments in abstract photography this book is small, but perfectly formed. Printed lithographically and with a machine varnish to enhance the look and feel of the images, this little gem has been lovingly designed by the talented chaps at A-Side in Cornwall.
If you attended PiY in Paris last weekend you will have had a sneak preview of the book as part of Laurence Vecten's curated selection of this years best self-published photobooks. Sadly I wasn't able to be there in person, but photos of the event now in its second year look like it was once again a rip-roaring success!
