Click to preview Chuck Close : Tapestries photo book

Chuck Close's tapestry editions, translated from daguerreotypes and polaroids, realize the artist's signature conflation of intimate portraiture and rigorous attention to materials and surface. This catalog contains images of all of Close's woven editions to date (2009), including likenesses of Brad Pitt, Al Gore, Kate Moss, Elton John, and Cindy Sherman, as well as the artist's iconic self portraits.
