LAMBERT, Alix. Crime.

(London): FUEL, 2008. First edition. Octavo. 349 pages. A remarkable book, the first to explore our images of crime by interviewing those involved on, in and around all sides of the law, both real and fictional, and often somewhere in between. Through a series of exclusive interviews with artists, authors and actors such as Ben Affleck, David Cronenberg, Elmore Leonard, Viggo Mortensen, Ice-T, David Mamet and Takeshi Kitano, as well as real life bank robbers, gangsters and current prison inmates, editor Alix Lambert (artist, photographer of Russian prisoners’ tattoos and writer for HBO’s Deadwood) explores the gaps and overlaps between real crime and its representation in the arts, each commenting on and assessing the impact of the other. This is a fine copy in decorated red boards housed in the publisher’s black wibalin clamshell box.. This is the deluxe issue, one of 100 numbered copies signed by Lambert including a signed postcard print, measuring approx. 15cm by 20cm, housed in black tissue.
