Habitat Machines is a handmade, limited edition book of twelve archival pigment ink prints. Limited to fifty copies, two artist's and two printer's proofs, it includes the entire suite of images from the Habitat Machines series by Toronto-based artist David Trautrimas.
The book is presented in an engraved anodized aluminum box and includes a signed and numbered pigment ink print "Lighter Lofts," printed by the artist on 11x14 inch paper and created especially for this limited edition. This thirteenth image in the Habitat Machines series will not be available in any other format. The book itself is also signed and numbered by the artist.
Each image is printed on 14x22 inch paper that is scored and folded, forming a double page spread within the book. The book design allows each page to open and lay flat within the binding. The silver foil stamped boards are attached using a custom aluminum continuous hinge which also contributes to the book's ability to open flat.
This is the first book published by photo-eye Editions and is produced at photo-eye Studios, Santa Fe, New Mexico.
