BloodWork Volume 2: Bodies
Limited Edition Two-Book Boxed Set
by Analog Tattoo Arts Kolectiv
Limited Edition of 1500 numbered two-book sets worldwide.
This is probably the largest, most massive book set ever sold on our site. At twenty-seven pounds, the two volumes are shockingly heavy and deluxe. The exquisite photography combined with the very large format pages captures the finest tattoo details and allows the viewer to experience the work of some of the world's greatest tattooers almost as if they were seeing it in the flesh.
The result of several years of traversing the globe, BloodWork: Bodies is an archival work that will require much time and attention to fully absorb. Inside this tremendous 900 page tome, 119 backpieces and bodysuits created by 53 tattooers the world over are documented in luxuriant detail. Oversized foldouts offer massive views of each tattoo, exhaustive close-up studies reveal hidden details, and portraits of tattooers as well as collectors personalize each image set.
Designed and constructed to be enjoyed today and to also be of great value to generations to come, this set has been carefully crafted using heavy art paper, cloth binding, debossed foil and blind stamping, subtle matte and gloss treatments, fifth color spot, and is presented in a sturdy embossed hard slipcase.
Additionally, the accompanying web-based 360-degree image libraries open a door previously locked. Now, with the ability to rotate and zoom each collector on a single 360-degree axis, the tattoos unfold to the viewer as they would if observed in person. Each copy of BloodWork: Bodies comes with codes that will grant the owner access to the online galleries and, once logged in, the holder has unrestricted access to the entire reference archive.
Beside being an invaluable reference tool, the deeper raison d'etre behind BloodWork: Bodies is as a vessel to preserve the works of contemporary tattooers for future generations and present the tattoos in the light their beauty commands. As a whole it is a sublime representation of the illuminated man.
