This is the first photography book by front-man of the band, The Sea and Cake and all-round artist Sam Prekop. A monochrome photographic journey into Sam’s observation of Chicago cityscape where he resides combined with his continuous spontaneous experiments with geometrical patterns. Experience the subtle and fleeting beauty of the moment.

Comes with CD of original instrumental music by Sam Prekop.

As a long-time admirer of Sam Prekop’s music and his paintings, I was surprised to find that he also takes photographs, though I wasn’t surprised to discover that they share the same relaxed, unpretentious beauty of his more familiar work. To me, the images in this book perfectly capture the utilitarian litter and clutter of Chicago life both inside and out, though distilled into moments of happenstance clarity by his sharp, and apparently unerring, artistic discrimination. - Chris Ware, 2007
