The 30th publication in the Nazraeli Press One Picture Book series. From the publisher: "The title of Stu Levy's One Picture Book is also an anagram of the book's subject, Carl Chiarenza. Levy's "Grid Portraits" -- in which multiple photographs of his subject, taken from various perspectives and distances, are combined to create one portrait -- have been exhibited widely and are featured in many important collections throughout the United States. Cranial Czar, Eh? folds out map-like from its hardbound case."
