Mexican Summer: Five Years


    Description

    Fall 2013 marks the five-year anniversary of Mexican Summer, and with this milestone comes Mexican Summer: Five Years, a 256-page, 11″x11” hard-cover book limited to a one-time edition of 1,000 copies. The book includes unique and unseen art and ephemera, photos and written contributions from a host of Mexican Summer artists. 

    Designed by longtime collaborator Dan Schechter, Mexican Summer: Five Years features an embossed cloth cover, craft paper wrap, three interior paper stocks and an integrated 10” sleeve.

    The sleeve houses a 10″ record of unique collaborations from Bay Of Pigs (Spiritualized, Soldiers Of Fortune, and Neil Hagerty), Jorge Elbrose (Jorge Elbrecht and Ariel Pink), Autre Ne Veut and Fennesz, Quilt and Bobb Trimble, and The Lonely Sailor and Renée Mendoza Haran (members of Total Control, Lace Curtain & Ashrae Fax).

    There is no digital component.  The first — and last — pressing is only available with the book.
