ULTRA-SCARCE First Edition, First Printing (unstated; all subsequent editions are marked as such); SIGNED by VIGGO MORTENSEN (simply signed, not inscribed to anyone, which is pretty hard to find nowadays; the book was signed at the opening of the exibit, before the 'Lord of the Rings' craze, so the artist just unobtrusively signed the book, without inscription). This is a paperback original (there was no hardcover edition of this title) in stiff pictorial wraps with French flaps, unread in AS NEW condition (it comes with a CD inside a pouch attached to the back cover).

Synopsis: Poems are layered in paintings-obscured, written over, then painted again. Found objects are treated lovingly and elevated above their humble throwaway status. Old and new rub against each other in textured works that suggest a fractured narrative composed of the artist's visual and emotional memories. This volume is an extraordinary look into the process and mind of an artist whose boundless creative output touches a myriad of media and modes of expression. Included in the book are writings, paintings, collages, assemblages, found objects, and photographs that point to the fluidity of meaning of a world in flux, as well as a special spoken-word and music CD by Mortensen. Mortensen is best known for his outstanding performances in films such as A Perfect Murder, GI Jane, and Portrait of A Lady, and Gus Van Sant's Psycho. He is also the author of several books of poetry and other writings.
