Inaugural publication by Dashwood Books, “The Chance is Higher” is a 72-page book featuring forty black and white images by photographer Ari Marcopoulos, all of which were printed on a Xerox machine. For years Marcopoulos has worked with Xeroxes as sketches for books, zines, and exhibitions. In love with the simple direct beauty of this low-fi technique, the artist turned to that medium to create this new body of work. The book is designed by the Swiss team Gavillet and Rust who worked with Marcopolous on his landmark 2005 book “Even the President of the United States Sometimes has got to Stand Naked”, their cool elegant style subtly emphasizes the directness of the work.
This hardcover edition comes in a slipcase, and is limited to 50 copies which are all signed at numbered by the artist. There is also a Deluxe Edition which is printed on a red paper stock throughout with dustjacket that folds out into a poster.
Both are now available for pre-order at Dashwood Books.
