Free Association publishes the first title in its new, limited-edition Notebook Series:

Erica Baum, The Naked Eye
Kenneth Goldsmith, Excerpts from No.

In this new series of photographs, Erica Baum explores both the poetic and the painterly qualities of photography by shooting vintage paperbacks from the mid-20th Century with their pages fanned open to reveal fragmented and beautiful narratives in strips of color, image, and text. Her work is complemented by a selection of poems by founder Kenneth Goldsmith.
