Other ed.: Limited edition of 300 (200?) copies hand-numbered and signed by Fuss, in a cloth slipcase: Calcutta: Laurens Press, 1999. - Illustrated with color reproductions of Fuss's ethereal daguerreotypes. From the publisher: "A nineteenth-century child's dress is carefully laid out for our viewing. Perhaps, because we are aware that it is a part of lost time, our thoughts go to its missing inhabitant- an ethereal presence, intricate to the weave of the fabric before us. And then there are the birds, scattering in a grey photographic dusk, soundless. Now, the mirrored surfaces of the daguerreotypes flicker before us, never completely giving up their secrets. In this body of work the artist essays loss and its attendant ghosts." (Antiq. Borelli, Albuquerque, NM).
