Birthday Book, part 3 (Bedrock City)

Posted in Photobooks (general) by Alec Soth on January 11, 2010

Lost all your money in Vegas? You can pick up Todd Oldham’s Bedrock City used on Amazon like I did for $6.80. Located somewhere between Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon, Bedrock City will appeal to fans of caveman architecture (Lester?). Real architecture fans might like it too – Michael Graves contributes an essay. Is it a great book? Nope. The photography is forgettable. But the design is really cool. The dust jacket folds out into a poster and the book comes with three postcards.

There are three other book in the series that Oldham calls a ‘magazine monograph.’ See them here.
