Gottingen, Germany: Steidl, 2007. First edition. Hardcover. First printing. 150 pages. Foreword by Salman Rushdie. Introduction by Elizabeth Sussman and Tina Kukielski. Commentary by Ronald Dworkin. From the publisher: "In An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar, Taryn Simon documents spaces that are integral to America’s foundation, mythology and daily functioning, but remain inaccessible or unknown to a public audience. She has photographed rarely seen sites from domains including: science, government, medicine, entertainment, nature, security and religion. This index examines subjects that, while provocative or controversial, are currently legal. The work responds to a desire to discover unknown territories, to see everything." A fine copy in cloth boards. No dust jacket as issued. Signed by Simon on the title page.
