Viggo Mortensen has graciously signed a copy of his latest book, SKOVBO, in support of fundraising efforts for 1,2,3...Hi Baby! at Pine Ridge South Dakota. The book is being auctioned on eBay, with a closing time of 11 a.m. PDT, Saturday, July 12.
This book functions as a partial companion to the upcoming photo exhibit, also titled Skovbo (which roughly translates from Danish as "home in the forest"), by Viggo Mortensen at the Reykjavik Museum of Photography (Ljósmyndasafn Reykjavikur), opening on 31st May, 2008 and running until 31st August, 2008. In this new collection of images and poems are trees and the memory of trees, ghosts, words, nights, days, lives, deaths, and safe haven for them all in the place where "...the twigs become branches, / And the mist becomes make-believe..." (Osip Emilyevich Mandelstam). If you daren't enter the forest, or cannot find it, then perhaps you might find one tree, or a place where a tree could be, and just stop for a quiet moment to see what happens.
Bidding is active! Go to the eBay auction page for more photos and details, and to bid for the book and to support 1,2,3,...Hi Baby!

As part of the 1,2,3...Hi Baby! Wheels Project, a member of the Viggo-Works community has donated a signed first edition copy of Viggo Mortensen's Miyelo, along with a print from the book. The auction is in full swing on eBay, with a closing time of 10 a.m. PDT tomorrow, June 21, 2008, so don't delay if you want a chance to own this rare and beautiful book and print. Description:
On September 11, 2003, Viggo Mortensen held a private opening at the Stephen Cohen Gallery in Los Angeles for his new Miyelo Exhibit. As part of that opening there was a special offering of his new Miyelo book, hardbound, signed, and numbered by Viggo himself. Accompanying this book was a 9 x 16 extraordinary print of Miyelo 4 (2003), also signed and numbered by Viggo himself. Only 150 of these signed and numbered sets were offered and they are now a coveted collector’s treasure. We now offer one of these irreplaceable sets in support of 1, 2, 3 … Hi Baby! in Pine Ridge, SD.
The set, bound in the original red ribbon contains the hardbound Miyelo book, plus the print in acid free envelope.
Go to the eBay auction page for more photos and details, and to bid on this treasure.
