Michael Snow: Cover to CoverMichael Snow: Cover to Cover

Published by Light Industry/Primary Information.

For years an out-of-print rarity, Canadian artist, filmmaker and musician Michael Snow's (born 1928) classic 1975 artist's book Cover to Cover is available once again, in this facsimile edition. Unconstrained by discipline, Snow famously remarked that his sculptures were made by a musician, his films by a painter. Flipping through Cover to Cover, which is composed entirely of photographs in narrative sequence, one might describe it as a book made by a filmmaker. Each individual page features a distinct moment, seen from one perspective on the front, and from a diametrically opposed angle on the back, occasionally pivoting between interior and exterior spaces. Midway through the book, the images are inverted such that the volume must be turned upside-down to be looked at right-side up. The result is an elegant, disorienting study in simultaneity. With this work, wrote Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, “Michael Snow has challenged the reader's/viewer's notion of a book, indeed one's very notion of perception.”

A History of His Art

Published by Ediciones Polígrafa.
Edited by Gloria Moure. Text by Bruce Jenkins, Michael Snow.

Canadian artist Michael Snow (born 1929) has been a central figure in North American postwar art; his influential films, such as Wavelength, rank alongside those of avant-garde auteurs such as Stan Brakhage and Gregory Markopoulos. Sequences is a complete monograph of this contemporary Renaissance man, who characterizes his oeuvre thus: "my paintings are done by a filmmaker, sculpture by a musician, films by a painter, music by a filmmaker, paintings by a sculptor, sculpture by a filmmaker, films by a musician, music by a sculptor." Accordingly, Snow’s texts acknowledge the difficulties an artist faces in approaching multiple disciplines. Across 17 chapters, the artist offers a complete overview of his own work--an editorial task with which he is intimately familiar after having produced several remarkable artists’ books. At almost 400 pages, this hardcover is a tour- de-force on and by one of the most outstanding artists of our time.
