(With signed print) Zine Collection N°12: Afronauts by Cristina De Middel
The 12th volume of a series of printed zines published continuously by Editions Bessard, an independent publisher based in Paris.
This issue features Spanish photographer Cristina de Middel. It contains other cuts of Midell's collection of works "Afronauts", which was published in 2012 and triggered the subsequent independent/self-published photo book boom. "Afronauts" is a work based on the space development program implemented in Africa in 1964, and the style of documentary photography expressed with a unique interpretation while interweaving fiction and unique book construction will be later popularized. It had an immeasurable influence on the creation of the photobook. The original version has been published up to the 3rd edition.
Limited to 300 copies, with signed print. Although it is an unused item, there is a very small pen mark on the right side that seems to have been attached when signing. Please check the photos.
