** BROKEN MANUAL **

Posted in Bookstore, LBM Books by Alec Soth on September 7, 2010

I’m so happy to finally announce my new Steidl book: Broken Manual. Four years in the making (2006-2010), this book represents a significant departure from my previous publications. Working with the writer Lester B. Morrison, we’ve created an underground instruction manual for men looking to escape their lives.

It is common to follow up the publication of a book with a ‘Special Edition,’ but in the case of Broken Manual, this edition is being presented first. I think of this as the ‘Ideal Edition’ of Broken Manual. Each of the 300 copies of the book is housed inside of another, one-of-a-kind book. These signed and numbered ‘shell’ books are unique and cut by hand. Inside the shell, there is also a small booklet entitled ‘Liberation Billfold Manifest’ and an 8×10” print signed and numbered by myself and Lester B. Morrison.

The book can only be purchased at Steidlville (UK) or Little Brown Mushroom (US).

Note: This special edition will be installed as a part of my survey exhibition at the Walker Art Center (September 12 – January 2, 2011). They will be shipped to buyers in January 2011.

Book Shipment

Dear valued LBM customers,

We are shipping the copies of Trent Parke’s book as fast as we can. Due to the high-volume of sales and a lack of robots at the LBM headquarters, we are slightly backed up.  We will make sure that you receive your copies as fast as we can get them to you.

Thank you very much for your patience!
