The Billboard Papers: Photographs by Joel Grey
Author: Joel Grey
Publisher: Pointed Leaf Press (October 2013)
SIGNED BY JOEL GREY
The Billboard Papers is the fourth book of photography by award-winning screen and stage actor Joel Grey. Twenty-eight full-color photographs of various torn and decaying billboards from the streets of New York resemble paper collages, revealing the strange and unexpected layers of billboards past. Grey’s striking photographs are of tapestries of embedded memories—constantly fleeting and subject to change, or demolition, or renewal. The Billboard Papers, designed by Sam Shahid, features an introduction by Grey and a preface by American artist Ross Bleckner. The Billboard Papers is published in a limited edition of 600 numbered copies.
