Signs and Relics

Sylvia Plachy


PLACHY, Sylvia. Signs & Relics. (New York): The Monacelli Press, (1999). Square octavo, original blue cloth, original photographic dust jacket. $250.

First edition, featuring 148 black-and-white photographs.

A collection of her photographs that first appeared monthly in Metropolis magazine, Signs & Relics “has the breath and depth of a book that is uncommon in our fast-forward culture… [Plachy] is that rare photographer whose work is soulful and honest, with a visual vocabulary so steeped in the poetic, that her images celebrate her subjects as well as the medium of photography she loves so much” (Nubar Alexanian).

A fine copy.
