Morrison" seen as preparatory work for Broken Manual. "Created over four years (2006-2010), Alec Soth's newest book represents asignificant departure from his previous publications. Entitled 'BrokenManual,' Soth investigates the places in which people retreat to escapecivilization. Soth photographs monks, survivalists, hermits and runaways, butthis isn't a conventional documentary book on life 'off the grid.' Instead,working with the writer Lester B. Morrison, the authors have created anunderground instruction manual for those looking to escape their lives. "It is common for artists to follow up the publication of their books with'Special Editions,' but in the case of Broken Manual, this edition is beingpresented first. Made in an edition of 300, Soth calls this the 'IdealEdition' of Broken Manual. Each copy of the book is housed inside ofanother, one-of-a-kind book. These signed and numbered 'shell' books areunique and cut by hand. Inside the shell, there is also a small bookletentitled 'Liberation Billfold Manifest' and an 8×10" print signedand numbered by Alec Soth and Lester B. Morrison" (Little Brown Mushroom website).
