This lovely catalogue has a different feeling her previous books. First it is a smaller format,clothbound book. It has a really nice feeling overall. It features a wide selection of her work, from her first Sensation era-self portraits to her most recent work that was shown at Gagosian Gallery in 2011.
The book is BEAUTIFULLY printed by Meridian Printing in Rhode Island (to give you a sense of quality, they normally print all of Lee Friedlander's books). Although the reproductions are smaller than those in her Rizzoli monographs, in a way these might be the best Saville reproductions in book form. Very rich in tone, very accurate in color.
There are a couple of solid essays, as well as some studio photographs. It doesn't cover much new ground compared to her other books, but all in all this is both a necessary addition to any figurative painting shelf and also functions as an excellent primer on the artist. It is a gem-RECOMMENDED!
Please note: Apparently this book was produced in small run so it won't be available for long. If you are thinking of buying this book, my sense is that you should do so soon.
