Postcards From America

In May 2011, five Magnum photographers – Paolo Pellegrin, Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Alec Soth, Mikhael Subotzky – and a writer, Ginger Strand, set out from Austin, Texas, in an RV. Two weeks and 1750 miles later, they arrived in Oakland, California.

The resulting limited edition book is a collection of objects – a book, five bumper stickers, a newspaper, two fold-outs, three cards, a poster and five zines, all in a signed and numbered box – that collectively document the experience.

Although this product is a little pricey at 250 clams it is still a wonderful collection of work (and at least you get the autographs of all the artists). Watch the video below to see Alec Soth give you a virtual tour. Also buy the book here. You better act fast because it is only an edition of 500 and the price goes up to 350 on February 1, 2012.
