About This Item
Tubingen and Berlin: J.J. Heckenhauer 2000, 2000. Limited edition, number 212 of 750. Unpaginated. Bound in green cloth over boards. Title printed in white to upper cover and spine. "DL07" embossed on upper cover. Excellent condition. Twelve page introductory essay by Ian Jeffrey, text in German and English. Twenty black and white photographs. "DL07" refers to Tirana, in Albania (it is a US map reference) which Liebchen visited during a period of peace. His photographs, however, use all the visual grammar and vocabulary of classic war photography to give the impression of a city at war. His purpose is to show that war photography has its own conventions which can exist separately from the veracity of the subject matter. The question thus arises: is war photography a work of journalistic realism or a work of art? Jeffery's essay suggests that we should see DL07 "as a kind of Arte Povera".

About Voewood Rare Books
Simon Finch has been a Rare Book Dealer since 1980. He has had shops in Notting Hill Gate, Mayfair and Holt, Norfolk. His firm has handled a wide variety of material from the First Folio of Shakespeare to the wilder shores of the counterculture and everything in between. In 1998, Simon bought Voewood, one of the finest Arts and Crafts and houses and brought it back to life with an eight-year programme of renovation and restoration. Voewood Rare Books, which operates from Voewood, is the continuation for Simon of a long career in the book trade. It also represents an important link with the House. Voewood is always beautiful, surprising, mysterious and perhaps a little disorientating and we aim to bring something of this spirit to the bookshop. Whilst our focus in on the visual arts, literature and the counter-culture, we deal also in a broad range of antiquarian and modern rare books across all subject areas. Our collection can be found here at Biblio and on our website. We are open by appointment and can always be contacted by email.
