>Tho it soounds like you're familiar with these "originals" -- or their 
Mostly from books.  Only some that I have seen at galleries and museums but 
not a ton of the ones in this book in person.
Tell me about print being different:  above is a URL of an original gum side

by side with its appearance in a book, a marked difference.
So, like Cigar Boy, certainly the exhibition guide could look nothing like 
the actual print.

>>Do they make you want to print darker?

Yes, the darkness of the prints in this book make me want to explore 
printing darker.  I think there is much room for this kind of dark beauty in

this day and age.

But what surprises me about the book is that many of the images are still 
quite powerful, and contemporary.
