BURROUGHS 23 is a deluxe artist’s book By Charles Gatewood published in a special limited edition of 23, Burrough’s lucky number (plus 2 AP copies).

Each 11″x14″ hand-crafted book features high-quality digitally-printed reproductions of photographs of American author William S. Burroughs (b. 1914 – d. 1997) shot in London, England in 1972, and in New York, New York, USA in 1975. The book also contains photos of writer Brion Gysin, Led Zeppelin singer Jimmy Page, and Rolling Stone Magazine journalist Robert Palmer. Many of these photos have never been seen or published before now.

This book uses the latest digital papers and printing techniques to reproduce the rich, lustrous surface and tonal range of traditional chemically printed black and white photographs. The pages are made of heavy papers and archival inks that have been developed to mimic the silver gelatin prints that Charles Gatewood created in the darkroom throughout his career as a photographer.

Photographs, collage, and text by Charles Gatewood. Design by Charles Gatewood. Published by Dana Dana Dana limited editions, San Francisco, California, 2011.

30 pages digitally printed with archival inks on semi-gloss digitally coated paper. Hand sewn and bound with a case binding covered with a digitally printed canvas. Closed book measures 11” by 14.5.”
