If you couldn't afford to pay $6000 for the "art edition" of Mark Ryden's book Pinxit (it's sold out anyway), Taschen has thoughtfully introduced a popular-priced edition of the 366-page book, for $1000.
Many books have been published on Mark Ryden before, but none like this large-format monograph, released in a boxed Collector’s Edition of 1,000 numbered copies, each signed by the artist; and also available in an Art Edition of only 50 copies, which come with an artwork. This sweeping retrospective brings together nearly two decade’s worth of Mark Ryden’s paintings and works on paper, broadening the horizons of his uncanny universe and bringing it to the world, one big page at a time.
Collector's Edition – No. 51–1,050
Limited to 1,000 individually numbered copies, each signed by Mark Ryden
Printed on archival-quality paper
Quarter-bound book with leather spine
Front cover features gold-relief embossing crafted by the master printers at Pressure Printing
Comes in a clamshell box covered in cloth fabric
Also available in an Art Edition of 50 copies with a silk screen print

Light used to just be one of two things: on or off. Simple as that. Either a flood of yellow or total darkness.
