Shot in his signature style emphasizing at once the banal and the outlandish, Parr deconstructs the divide between red and blue states in a full-bleed color haze. Bound dos-à-dos to reflect the dichotomy between parties, and to highlight the upside-down nature of what Bill Clinton referred to as a "whackadoodle" election. New in photo-illustrated wrappers with French flaps. Edition of 538 copies, which equals the number of US Electoral College votes.
