Salgado's Genesis arrives

blogEntryTopperJust a short follow up to my previous post on this book. It has arrived and here are some photos to show what it’s like. I would describe the ‘colour’ as neutral to slightly warm. Paper quality is good. Printing is very good as is the binding and cover. Many of the photos are spread across two pages which personally I’m not a fan of, but at least they are not full bleed.

Genesis-2

Genesis-4

The book has 17 fold-outs which need to be handled carefully as they can easily crease if not put back correctly.

Genesis-1

Genesis-3

These examples are from the first section of the book.

Genesis-6

Genesis-5

Also included is a 36 page separate booklet which has background information about the photos.

Genesis-7

It is clear that Taschen has put a lot of time, energy and attention to detail into the production of this book.
