From Landfall Press
Peregrine Honig has been printing with Landfall Press, Inc. for over ten years. Her ideas and images challenge issues of beauty and social hierarchies. Honig’s recent collaboration with Landfall, Widow, deals with the complex culture of the fashion industry.
Widow, is published in the format of a glossy one-volume fashion magazine and will include an audio component (the final studio recording of Jimmy Carl Black, the drummer from Captain Beefheart and Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention), 186 images of her work, essays, a poster, and photographed portraits. The first 500 (the Deluxe Edition) will include a reading glove by the designer Peggy Noland, Widow draws lines between the fashion industry and the fine art world and will be available as a limited edition of 1500. This unique venture has never been done before by any fine art publisher.
