Jim Goldberg - Raised by Wolves bootleg


Jim Goldberg writes:

Dear Friends and Family, 

As some of you may already know, I have just self-published (what many consider my most iconic work) Raised By Wolves, as a xerox-style Bootleg version.
The original book is largely unavailable except at very high prices - and with this new edition, an entirely new generation will have access. It’s also a way to re-stock all those school libraries that have had RBW stolen off their shelves. 

I am having a book signing on November 12th at Uptown in San Francisco from 3-5pm, where I'll be signing each book in a unique way. I hope to see you all there. If you know of anyone who can't make it or is interested in purchasing Raised By Wolves (Bootleg)... 

Here's the link: If you’ve already purchased the book, many thanks.


Often considered Goldberg’s seminal project, Raised by Wolves combines ten years of original photographs, text, and other illustrative elements (home movie stills, snapshots, drawings, diary entries, and images of discarded belongings) to document the lives of runaway teenagers in San Francisco and Los Angeles. The book quickly became a classic in the photobook canon and, thus, the original is essentially unavailable.

In the spirit of Tweeky Dave, Goldberg is releasing a xerox style bootleg version of the book with numerous surprises inserted by the artist. At 9x12 inches, the same size as the original, the re-issue features 320 color and black and white pages, perfect bound, with a color softcover. Raised By Wolves Bootleg re-issue - $100 plus shipping*
