Very good or better, with mild soiling to the covers and some ring-related wear along the spine-side of the leaves. Published in an edition of 400 to coincide with the exhibition "200 photographs" at the James Hockey Gallery, May 1991. This copy marked 14/20, and signed and dated by Bond in 1995.

A collection of one hundred black-and-white found photographs compiled by critical theorist and photographer Henry Bond (b. 1966), a figure frequently associated with the Young British Artists movement of the early 1990s. Writing in a 2009 collection of nonfiction, Bond notes that the images were selected from the archive of English newspaper Farnham Herald, and that the work was motivated by his interest in the innate tendency of viewers to invent narrative where none exists: "These new narratives may be more strange, more phantasmagoric, and even more hallucinatory than the original captions" (Bond, Lacan at the Scene, p. 193). Nonetheless, recognizable rhythms—humorous, nostalgic, formal, ironic—recur throughout the series, reflecting various facets of Bond's selection sensibilities. OCLC locates seven holdings, only one in the U.S.
