All books are printed on recycled paper and are limited edition, numbered and signed - no two books are the same. This ensures that every book is hand crafted, unique and cannot be forged and then traded, as has happened on occasion with our previous Urban Fox Press books.

 

To purchase any items on this page you have three choices.

 

The first method is the usual one, via Paypal or credit card. You'll find the relevant payment button below every book listing. If you'd like to buy several books, please email info@hakimslater.com for details of discounts.

 

You can also note down the Isbn number listed under titles and order the book using that from any British bookshop (at a higher price, the shops will add up to 80% commission).

 

The final choice you have is to participate in the Gift Economy method. This means you either meet up with us and we'll hand over the books, or you pay a small fee upfront (£6.50 for the UK, more for overseas) which covers our costs. After you receive the book you decide if you'd like to reward us by donating more via the button below or, if you think the book isn't worth any more than you've already paid, then you're free to pay nothing more at all.

 

If you'd like to participate in the Gift Economy then click the Buy Now button directly below, make your payment then email us with details of what you'd like and where you'd like it sent.

the Photographers; Visual Poems from the White Hour

by David Wise & Lamia Hossain

Isbn 978-1-905522-45-3

Guided by the teachings of Sappho and the limitations presented by the 35mm Artistamp, Box Brownie Pinhole and Analogue Nikkormat the Photographers David Wise and Lamia Hossain describe a 4 month, 11,000 mile journey from the shores of the Meditteranean to those of Lake Ontario, from the ancient Greek Agora to downtown Toronto and from the wide open Cumbrian landscapes of the great Romantic poets to intimate spaces shared with friends, family and lovers.

 

“Many talk about following their hearts, of being aware of the moment, perfect or otherwise, of pursuing beauty and seeking joy, of bursting through the many layers of time, place and rhetoric that serve to chain us. But the lives they lead sipping artisan Americanos tell a different story. We both have a fear of turning out like that. So we’d chosen to do, not just talk, we’d chosen to push ourselves further, to live the life we laid claim to, to put as much space between ourselves and the Café Flores as possible.” Lamia Hossain, Toronto, August 2013

 

The Special Edition of this book comes with an extra chapter.
