It’s a must-have reference for thrill-seeking aficionados, students of cinema, and collectors of offbeat artists’ books. Spanning the golden age of Noir (1941-1962), it includes over 50 rare photographic stills from memorable hard-boiled motion pictures, such as The Maltese Falcon, Double Indemnity, The Postman Always Rings Twice, The Big Sleep, Out of the Past, Kiss Me Deadly, and many more.
Includes an illuminating introduction by Robert Wexelblatt, Professor of Humanities, Boston University.
“Rear Windows is a tight idea which manages to escape the artist book genre and leans into film studies. The many shared spatial devices that help to bind the genre are remarkable and banal at the same time.”—Stefan Szczelkun
“This is conceptual art at its finest. Ingenious in its simplicity, startling, absurd, and very funny.” —Alec Burroughs
“Evocative… I like the various physical/psychological angles with which [Conquest] approaches the stills, each of which is elegantly if sometimes surprisingly effected.” —Harold Jaffe
