New. SIGNED COPY FIRST EDITION & FIRST PRINTING-London, England: MACK, 2014. Hardcover in light-green cloth covers. First Edition. First Printing. 144 pages with numerous black and white photographic images throughout. SIGNED by Alec Soth. BOOK CONDITION: New/Fine. SIGNED. From 2012-2014, Soth traveled state by state while working on his self-published newspaper, The LBM Dispatch, as well as on assignment for the New York Times and others. From upstate New York to Silicon Valley, Soth attended hundreds of meetings, dances, festivals and communal gatherings in search of human interaction in an era of virtual social networks. With Songbook, Soth has stripped these pictures of their news context in order to highlight the longing for connection at their root. Fragmentary, funny and sad, Songbook is a lyrical depiction of the tension between American individualism and the desire to be united.
