SIGNED. First edition. New hardcover with a light bump to the tip of one board and tiny flecks of the cover stuck to the printed acetate dust jacket, in publisher's mailer. BOOKS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY, WRAPPED IN PADDING, IN A BOX. 80 pages; 38 color photographic plates (including 9 double-page spreads), plus 7 text illustrations; 20 x 16 inches. SIGNED BY MISRACH. LAID IN is a gallery card announcement for a booksigning with Misrach in NYC. Misrach hones in on our delicate relationship to the sea. Light, color, and form are crucial components in Misrach's explorations of difficult subjects. In this body of work he uses a gorgeous, slowly shifting color palette gleaned from changes in depth and tide; abstract patterns of waves and rippling water, and beaches both empty and cluttered. Misrach carefully balances the minutiae of human gesture against the massive scale of the sea. At 20 x 16 inches, On the Beach is the largest book ever published by Aperture.
