“Mann Vol. 1” compiles the past seven years of Mann’s work chronicling the lush portraits and haunting cityscapes created from his post-graduate work to the current day.
The book features introductions by gallery owner John Pence and noted painter Justin “Coro” Kaufmann.
At 384 pages, this massive new omnibus spans hundreds of paintings, each presented with immaculate detail and color reproduction personally overseen by the artist himself. With a focus primarily directed to the work, “Mann Vol. 1” features only ten pages of text, and over twenty paintings reproduced at full size.
“Mann Vol. 1” comes with a dust jacket and weighs over 6 pounds.

Based on the exclusively 5-star reviews this book has, I'm guessing 827ink filters out negative ones. Even so, I hope someone at 827 at least reads this.
I was really disappointed to see Mann's textured, luminous paintings fall really flat on this volume's matte pages. For an artist whose (perhaps) most defining feature is his masterful use of light, matte printing seems like a very bad choice. I eagerly waited for this book to arrive in the mail because of how much I love Mann's cityscapes. After seeing how the paintings are reproduced in this book, I just want to leave this book closed on my shelf. It genuinely depresses me to see paintings I admire so much seem so mediocre on the printed page. I'd send the volume back if it wasn't for the cost of shipping and the hassle involved packing and mailing it. That said, aside from the poor reproductions of the art (the most important thing to me), it is a large, well-constructed, and sturdy book with a good layout.

I have numerous art books but this one is one of the best. The artwork is amazing. The book is huge and the quality is great. You can't go wrong!

The melancholia that each painting evokes is channeled effectively through the photos in the book and the strokes and composition really come through; Mann has a peerless eye for identifying everyday scenes and translating them into arresting art. After seeing his city paintings, I hope to get a volume of his work with models and portraits.

This is truly a wonderful oversized art book. Beautify put together with the amazing large high-quality prints of Jeremy Mann's body of work. Highly recommend if you are a fan...

When I first saw Jeremy Mann's work, I was stunned. I knew about the book, but waited to order it. I finally bit the bullet, and upon receipt I was astonished. The book itself is of the highest quality. The artist's statement that he does nothing but paint is evident in the work. It's a truly beautiful journey.

Frankly, I just ran into a discussion about the artist on Reddit, and was captivated by the pix I saw. I immediately bought the book. My wife and I meter out our viewing; a few dozen pages at a time, over morning coffee.
I have essentially no knowledge of art, other than spending time in many museums over the years - but I do know what captivates me - drama that pulls me into the scene, without being totally clear about where I'm going or what I'll see.
Mechanically, the book is well printed and bound; the reproductions glow; it's certainly worthy and durable to leave out to capture one's friends.
So - clearly I'll be following Mann for a long time, even if there's the confusing issue of the duck carcasses.

un livre magnifique pour un artiste unique.
Il nous permet de contempler tous les jours des tableaux incroyables, sinon visibles uniquement sur nos écrans d'ordinateurs !! :-(
