Dear Leonard, produced in collaboration with New York-based publisher Silas Finch, contains 32 silver gelatin prints of Franklin's photographs, some from the archives and some shot exclusively for the book. Each image has a Cohen lyric running across it. This is an exceptional tribute to an exceptional man: Mr. Leonard Cohen, in celebration of his 80th birthday.
The result is a book containing 32 silver gelatin prints, each of which has been letterpress printed by hand with a line from one of Cohen’s iconic songs. An envelope mounted inside the first pages of the book contains a letterpress printed facsimilie of a personal typewritten letter from Stuart Franklin to Leonard Cohen.
