  • Details of the Book and Prints: For years Michael Kenna has been recognized as one of the world's leading photographers, an artist with so great a grasp of place that his way of seeing Stonehenge, Versailles, Easter Island, Hokkaido, and elsewhere has become "our" way of seeing them. Kenna has now turned his eye to Mont-Saint-Michel where light dawns through graceful arches, cascades down stairways and roadways, wraps itself around 900 year old Gothic architecture in a delicate embrace as it seeps into otherwise impermeable stone to illuminate it from within. Kenna has indeed created the photographic portrait of the island and its architecture, a body of work which rivals and complements Henry Adams' classic Mont-Saint-Michel and Chartres, the famed book which is the verbal portrait of the Mount. This handmade, limited edition unites Adams' words with Kenna's images and contains a short introduction by John Wood and a scholarly essay by Lance Speer. Each signed and numbered copy of Mont-Saint-Michel is hand-bound and printed in letterpress on handmade cotton rag paper. This gorgeous handmade volume is housed in a custom clamshell box. The book measures 16" x 14.25" with each of the 14 fully signed platinum prints measuring 9" x 9". The free-standing platinum print is housed in a folded, letterpress printed presentation folder. The book is signed and numbered by Michel Kenna, John Wood, Lance Speer, and the publisher, Steven Albahari on the limitation page.
  • Awards: 21st Editions was awarded the prestigious Independent Publisher (IPPY) Book Award Silver Medal in 2008 for "Best Book Arts Craftsmanship" for its publication "Mont-Saint-Michel."
