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.
