American skateboarding legend, photographer and artist, Ed Templeton, recently released “Wayward Cognitions”. While his previous publications were usually focused on a certain subject (Teenage Smokers, Teenage Kissers, Deformer, etc), the photographs in this book are randomly chosen from his archives spanning 20 years, hence the title. After regular edition that was released on November 30th 2014, and is widely available, Templeton recently released a special edition that is available directly through the publisher – UmYeahArts.com.
The special edition is limited to only 50 pieces and each of them is coming with a hard cover slip case and specially printed cover, extra printed edition page that is hand numbered by Ed Templeton, unique drawing, second edition page with image that is only in the 50 special edition books, and finally, a 8 x 10 custom signed, numbered and stamped fiber based photo print. As a fan and supporter of DIY culture, the artist created the layout and design, printed all the photographs in his darkroom, building the book himself from scratch in his home studio.
