From the publisher (from the announcement of the new Series): "We are excited to announce the launch of One Picture Book Two: an upgraded, upscaled follow-up to our much-loved One Picture Book series of artists’ books. Each title will be limited to 500 numbered copies, and will include a removable, signed, original print. The books will be a little bigger, with a fresh design, but the price remains the same. Subscribers to the series are guaranteed a copy of each release for $40, complete with four-volume slipcase. For non-subscribers, individual titles start at $50, with the price increasing as the books sell out.

Subsequent releases will include titles by JoAnn Callis, Mark Ruwedel, Daido Moriyama, Susan Zadeh, Laurie Simmons, Michael Mulno, Pablo Ortiz Monasterio, Toshio Shibata, Todd Hido, Mark Steinmetz, Leon Borensztein, Corey Arnold, and many others."
From the publisher:
#9. Susan A. Zadeh: I : "Nazraeli Press published Susan A. Zadeh’s first monograph, “Drowned in a Dream” to critical acclaim in Spring of 2019, and we are delighted to announce her first contribution to our One Picture Book Two series.
Comprising ten self-portraits made specially for this book, “I” is an intimate, vaguely surreal take on a timeless approach to image making, with the artist herself as the subject.
Persian by ancestry and birth, Zadeh moved to France as a child, and then to Holland as a teenager. She has lived in Amsterdam ever since. Originally trained as a classical dancer, after a 12-year career at the Dutch National Ballet in Amsterdam she turned to photography and publishing. Zadeh became well-known as a champion of outsider artists through her seminal art magazine “Eyemazing”, which ran from 2002 to 2013 and which received a coveted Lucie Award. Since then, she has concentrated on her own work as an artist."
#10. Daido Moriyama: Daido Moto: "Daido Moriyama has been photographing motorcycles on the streets of Tokyo for decades, and for his first contribution to our series One Picture Book Two, we asked him to select his favorite pictures of the subject. The result is Daido Moto. Printed full-bleed with double black ink, the eleven images comprising this book display the sleek, raw power of their subject.
Born in Osaka, Japan in 1938, Daido Moriyama is one of the most influential photographers of his generation. His work is widely exhibited throughout the world, and he is the author and subject of literally dozens of books. Moriyama is known for his images depicting the contrast of traditional values and modern society in post-war Japan, and for his desire to utilize photography in “the fossilization of light”."
#11. Leon Borensztein: Tata: "Leon Borensztein’s powerful little book Tata (Polish for “Pappa”) pays homage to his father, “Citizen M. Borensztein”. Born in the Polish city of Mi sk Mazowiecki in 1912, M. Borensztein received his first military award in 1947. It was a Grunwald Badge, presented to him from the Commander-in-Chief of the Polish Army, for armed struggle against the Germans. He soon after received his second medal, for “Victory and Freedom”. The pages of Tata turn to document the many other medals he received through the 1960s. As the list of commendations grows, so the accompanying photographs of the badges begin to feel heavier and almost claustrophobic. That is, until the final spread reveals a white shirt with a single medal. It was presented by The Ministry of Defense of the State of Israel to Mr. M. Borensztein in 1974, for volunteering in the Yom Kippur War.
Leon Borensztein’s photographs have been widely published and exhibited in the United States and abroad, and are included in the permanent collections of such institutions as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Art Institute of Chicago; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum."
#12. Laurie Simmons: Instant Decorator: "Laurie Simmons began working on her "Instant Decorator” series in 2001. Based on an interior decorating book of the same name, published in 1976, it comprises works that are collage-like and opulently filled with accessories and characters in dramatic mises en scène. The images are at once aesthetically striking, playful, and loaded with hints and references.
A Guggenheim Fellow, Laurie Simmons is the subject of numerous publications, and her work has been widely published and exhibited in the United States and abroad. Her photographs are included in the permanent collections of such institutions as the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and Hara Museum, Tokyo."
