From the publisher: "Intrigued by the creative potential of print-on-demand technology, in 2003 Stephen Shore began making a series of books using Apple's iPhoto service. Each book was a visual record of his activities on one particular day. The project shifted in emphasis from August 2005, when Shore determined to make an entire book wherever he was in the world 'on days that The New York Times deemed an event newsworthy enough to bestow one of its six-column, full-width banner headlines to it.' Produced in editions of 20 and sold at his galleries, these books have become coveted and collected by the photographic community. They were exhibited as part of Shore's show at New York's International Center of Photography in 2007 and The Metropolitan Museum of Art bought a set for its permanent collection. The Book of Books is a highly collectible, two volume book (limited to 250 copies) containing a complete collection of these 83 print-on-demand books. The original layouts, including blank pages, are reproduced at actual size and organised chronologically. In this way, the collector experiences each book and the entire book project as Stephen Shore originally intended." The individual books reproduced in the set are as follows: 1. Dog Show; 2. 3-25-03; 3. Quail Hollow; 4. Jigsaw Puzzle; 5. Mt. Shasta; 6. Street; 7. Merced River; 8. Plage Keller; 9. White Garden; 10. Fear of the Dark; 11. A Visit to the Dentist; 12. Fowl; 13.
