From Aperture: "The brainchild of renowned Dutch art director Erik Kessels, In Almost Every Picture has become a cult classic with many volumes in the series no longer available individually. Each book features an idiosyncratic collection of found images, ranging from a series of a parked taxi against alpine settings to a series dedicated to one family's photogenic Dalmatian. This limited edition set includes a DVD of a Super-8 film of Josephina, the star of volume one."
