Abrams, 2004, Hardcover (Original Cloth), Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good, First
DWECK, MICHAEL. The End, Montauk, N.Y., New York: Abrams, 2004. Tall folio, first edition, unpaginated, beige cloth boards with blind-stamped lettering on spine and front, about 150 halftone and color photo plates profiling the free-spirited surfing community at the eastern end of New York's Long Island. The photographer wrote of Montauk: "It's 100 miles from Manhattan, yet almost no one locks their doors and the taco stand extends credit. Everyone knows the freewheeling vibe can't last, they're just determined that it won't disappear on their watch. ... I focused on the subjects I was most interested in, the surfers. By and large these are kids who are the same age I was when I first fell in love with the place. They are beautiful and sexy and tribal in a way no one who hasn't been part of the surf community can understand."
