Slipcased artist's book by Bernd & Hilla Becher featuring "their foray into the world of food production focuses on grain elevators, invented for efficient loading and unloading of grain and its safe storage: cool, dry, free of pests. Mostly abandoned today, the monolithic structures towering in the flat landscapes of the world’s granaries are monuments of a bygone era." -- publisher's statement. Introduction by Bernd & Hilla Becher. Includes loose, 9 1/2 x 7 inch, black-and-white (silver gelatin) photograph, "Sycamore, Ohio, USA," 1987, printed in 2008, signed and numbered by Hilla Becher housed within a second slipcase. Texts in German.
