Three books in editions of 20. A group of three of Stephen Shore's artists' books produced using Apple's print-on-demand iPhoto software. Shore began making these books in the spring of 2003 and first exhibited them at 303 Gallery, New York, that Autumn. Each book is a visual record of Shore's activities on a given day. The first book, KT Ranch, is interesting as it features archive photographs, an example of work made before Shore defined the parameters of the project: initially photographs taken over one day, he later refined it to be photographs taken during the course of one day on days when the New York Times deemed it appropriate to print a full-width six-column headline on its front page.

KT Ranch is not included in The Book of Books: Photographs by Stephen Shore (2012), the survey of this project published in an edition of 250. The other two books are featured, and these are inscribed to Bill Charles, an agent who represented Shore and other artists, including Joel Sternfeld, Jeff Mermelstein, Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin, and Larry Sultan, for commercial work in the late twentieth and early twentieth centuries. Added to the group is a book by John Midgeley, another photographer who worked with Bill Charles, which was also produced as an iPhoto book.
