New Title: TROPHY by Philip Zimmermann
I am happy to announce the publication of TROPHY. This book is dedicated to my teacher, mentor, and friend, Keith Smith, and was created to honor the occasion of his 80th birthday on May 20, 2018. A slightly different version of the book came out in time for his birthday, but the book was slightly revised later, and the final signed and numbered edition was published a couple of months later, in early August 2018.
TROPHY is a reaction to the current social and political state of the United States of America and the criminal and immoral administration that currently wields power in our country. Although superficially the subject matter is the cruelty of the Trump sons, their activities are an indicator of the worldview of the morally bankrupt family and administration of Donald J. Trump. The photographs of the animal dioramas and fur details were taken at the International Wildlife Museum in Tucson, AZ. The big-game trophy photographs of Donald J. Trump Jr. and Erik Trump were obtained from the internet, presumably Trump family travel and safari photographs, and have no photographer attribution.
This edition was printed in an edition of fifty and they are signed and numbered. The inside text block and cover were printed by HP Indigo digital printing on archival Mohawk Superfine. The Ex Libris book plate in the front, and the accordion 'arsenal' section at the rear of the book, were printed by archival inkjet pigment on acid-free French Paper Co. paper. The book dimensions are 7" x 7" x 5/8" (17.75cm x 17.75cm x 1.5cm). The book has 68 pages, and is hardcover bound, and is priced at $125. The full book, spread by spread, and a video of the page turning, can be viewed at my website.
