"Suit" showcases numerous photographs taken of Andreas Schmidt over the last 16 years wearing the same suit.
During C/O Berlin Book Days, http://www.co-berlin.info/program/book-days/2012.html, the artist will be present in his suit and conduct book signings at a specially curated table. The special edition book (Edition of 32) will also include a single Polaroid on the final page showing the artist standing next to the purchaser. Will it be you?
A trade edition of the book will be published soon after.
"knowingly at the opposite end of attractive publishing" Elisabeth Tonnard / artist "a prolific self-publisher exploring the very nature of books and magazines" Christopher Clary / artist "It's such a bold yet brilliant idea" Mishka Henner / artist "What a laugh!"

He finds truth in extremes." Jean Keller / artist "Schmidt is a master of the unexpected twist" Hatje Cantz Publishers "a superb collaborative photobook work" Harvey Benge / photographer "I'll track down your books" Alec Soth / photographer "a pleasingly disruptive photobook maker" Marc Feustel / Eyecurious
