We English, Special Edition

Simon Roberts travelled across England in a motorhome between August 2007 and September 2008, for this portfolio of large-format tableaux photographs of the English at leisure. Roberts’ national survey was informed by the photography of his predecessors and by the romantic tradition of English landscape painting. This is Roberts' second book and was included in Martin Parr’s 30 most influential photobooks of the last decade.

This special edition boxset of We English is an edition of 100 (+ 10 APs)

The edition includes a unique 11 x 14″ C-type edition print, a signed book and a copy of a local daily newspaper all housed in a grey embossed cloth bound clamshell box.

Also included is a signed and dated 'Certificate of Authenticity'.
