TEN YEARS NOW WE HAVE BEEN WRITING THESE EMAIL NEWSLETTERS. ONCE A WEEK. EVERY WEEK. AND IT WON'T STOP. THE IDEA OF CULTURE, COMMERCE AND COMMUNICATION IS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT. AND THESE WOLFGANG TILLMANS WAKO BOOKS IN ALL BRILLIANCE AND RARITY... HOW COULD WE NOT?
The Wako Book no.1. Published in 1999 in Japan. Small format softcover photo book / visual diary wrapped in the semi-opaque covers. From the first to the fifth book (in 2014), these are the great collection of Wolfgang Tillmans art and photography.
Kate does Linda, 1996. These were different times. But the same as it will ever be. Talent and beauty and energy.
Socks on Radiator, 1998. If one thing matters, everything matters. And what now looks like the art of isolation. Still life but still life.
And because we love you. This pic :) All these images are taken from Wako Book No.1. All five volumes are amaze but there is only so much space and No.1 is so incredibly scarce, you may not see them otherwise.
This kind of quiet. The potential energy of empty spaces. And a magical photograph.
The further four volumes. Fifteen years between the first and the fifth.
The way ahead. What else would you do but walk down it.
We have a complete set of Wako Books no's 1-5. And the first book and the fifth book are signed by Wolfgang. They are not cheap but they are so worth it. You only have to buy them once :)
THE IDEA SIGNED STORE. THE KATE MOSS CHRISTIE'S CATALOGUE IN THE SPECIAL HARDCOVER EDITION SIGNED BY NICK KNIGHT. YES, PLEASE. PLUS RYAN MCGINLEY AND ED TEMPLETON AND EVERYONE ELSE YOU EVER CARED SO MUCH ABOUT.
Twelve times WOW and that is not even a third of it!
