An exceptional opportunity to own a piece of Magnum's history: no more desirable collectibles have ever been produced. The Collector's Edition of Magnum Contact Sheets makes contact with the legendary creativity of some of the most influential photographers of all time.

This special edition consists of a clothbound copy of Magnum Contact Sheets placed in a presentation case, also containing an individual 16 x 12" contact sheet print selected from a series of 10, with each contact sheet printed in editions of 50. This book comes with the contact sheet: Marc Riboud, Eiffel Tower Painter, 1953

Each contact sheet print is numbered, embossed with ‘Magnum Photos Collection' on the white border, and hand-stamped with the photographer's copyright on the verso.

All contact sheets have been produced at Magnum's own print room as archival Giclée prints and to Magnum's exacting standards.

Magnum Contact Sheets, a special and important photography book presents, for the first time, the very best contact sheets created by Magnum photographers. Contact sheets tell the truth behind a photograph. They unveil its process, and provide its back story. Was it the outcome of what a photographer had in mind from the outset? Did it emerge from a diligently worked sequence, or was the right shot down to pure serendipity - a matter of being in the right place at the right time? This landmark publication provides the reader with a depth of understanding and a critical analysis of the story behind a photograph, the process of editing it, and the places and ways in which the selected photographs were used. For anyone with a deep appreciation of photography and a desire to understand what goes into creating iconic work, Magnum Contact Sheets will be regarded as the definitive volume.
