A signed inscribed copy of the book "courant continu", featuring the art photography of museum-level creative photographer RALPH GIBSON (1939-). The 13 1/2" by 9 3/4" book is complete with dust jacket. Photos are mostly in black and white but also in color. Gibson is an American art photographer known for his images featuring surreal juxtaposition and also erotic and mysterious undertones (as per Wikipedia). He was an assistant to Dorothea Lange in the early 1960's and worked with Robert Frank in 1967-8. Gibson has published many high-quality books featuring his work, which sells at auctions often in the $5,000-10,000 range. The sexy and mysterious inscription in this copy reads "To Laurie---A new muse...Ralph Gibson". The dust jacket bears evidence of moderate common wear including residue from a sticky label at spine bottom.
