As New/No Jacket - As Issued. 108pp, profusely illustrated in b&w. Text in English and Russian. Designed by Michele Perez. "The images in this book are of murder sites. They are about absence: what's not there, what has happened there, what might still happen there, what lies just around the corner, over the horizon, on the other side of the road. They are about possibility, loss, death, pain, passion, and they are also about hope. The interviews that accompany them are personal accounts - memories, thoughts, and feelings about the six Russian journalists who lost their lives in these places - from those who knew them, worked with them, loved them, admired them, and needed them". From Viggo Mortensen's Perceval Press comes this gritty new photographically illustrated publication from artist/filmmaker Alix Lambert, whose recent works include the three volume survey of "Russian Criminal Tattoos" and her feature length documentary on the same subject - "The Mark of Cain". A pristine copy of the no longer available 2008 first printing still in the publisher's shrinkwrap. 0-9763009-6-6 Inventory Number: 021293
