A Deluxe Artist’s Book by Charles Gatewood

BURROUGHS 23 is a deluxe artist’s book By Charles Gatewood published in 2011, in San Francisco, California by Dana Dana Dana in a special small edition of 23

Charles Gatewood, Burroughs 23, front coverEach 11″x14″ hand crafted book features high-quality digitally printed reproductions of photographs of american author William S. Burroughs (b. 1914 – d. 1997) shot in London, England in 1972, and in New York, New York, USA in 1975. The book also contains photos of writer Brion Gysin, Led Zeppelin singer Jimmy Page, and Rolling Stone Magazine journalist Robert Palmer. Many of these photos have never been seen or published before now.

This book uses the latest digital papers and printing techniques to reproduce the rich, lustrous surface and tonal range of traditional chemically printed black and white photographs. The pages are made of heavy papers and archival inks that have been developed to mimic the silver gelatin prints that Charles Gatewood created in the darkroom throughout his career as a photographer.

BURROUGHS 23 is currently priced at USD $2000 and is limited to 23 copies (plus 2 AP copies). Price is subject to change as more copies are sold.

Even though I hear and read people saying that Burroughs was an ugly man, I find his face fascinating, mean eyes and his voice was full of experience.

also just saying, Jimmy Page was the guitarist for Led Zeppelin, not the singer.
