Each "Collector's Edition" comprises a special cloth-bound and boxed edition of a Phaidon book, with an original print, made, signed and numbered by the artist or photographer. Four different images from Martin Parr are available: "Steep Lane Baptist Chapel, Yorkshire, 1978"; "Jubilee Street Party, Elland, Yorkshire, 1977"; "Badminton Horse Trial"; and "Pink Pig Cakes". Martin Parr's work has always provoked discussion and debate. A pioneer of colour photography and an insightful commentator on the commercial culture of today as well as domestic and social life, he has revitalized and repositioned contemporary documentary photography. A member of Magnum since 1994, Parr has published over 20 books and been widely exhibited around the globe. This is his first major retrospective book documenting his complete career to date.
