Limited Edition “1 Print + 1 Book” Set launched for “333 Saints”

The holidays are coming soon and beautiful books and prints make great presents! 

So, the Kyoudai Press has decided to issue two of the black and white photographs from “333 Saints” as special limited editions.

Each photograph has been printed on archival Hahnemuhle Paper by Alexandra herself (and signed and numbered, of course).

Only 6 prints of each of these image are available in this size (8.5 by 11 inch paper size) and as part of the special “1 print + 1 book” set.

You can see the two chosen print below.

You can purchase the set through the Kyoudai Press bookstore.

In 2012, the militant Islamist groups that took over the city destroyed these shrines, calling the practice of the Ziyarat un-Islamic.
