Rare Miyelo in Auction for 1,2,3 Hi Baby

Miyelo book & photoAs part of the 1,2,3...Hi Baby! Wheels Project, a member of the Viggo-Works community has donated a signed first edition copy of Viggo Mortensen's Miyelo, along with a print from the book. The auction is in full swing on eBay, with a closing time of 10 a.m. PDT tomorrow, June 21, 2008, so don't delay if you want a chance to own this rare and beautiful book and print. Description:
On September 11, 2003, Viggo Mortensen held a private opening at the Stephen Cohen Gallery in Los Angeles for his new Miyelo Exhibit. As part of that opening there was a special offering of his new Miyelo book, hardbound, signed, and numbered by Viggo himself. Accompanying this book was a 9 x 16 extraordinary print of Miyelo 4 (2003), also signed and numbered by Viggo himself. Only 150 of these signed and numbered sets were offered and they are now a coveted collector’s treasure. We now offer one of these irreplaceable sets in support of 1, 2, 3 … Hi Baby! in Pine Ridge, SD.

The set, bound in the original red ribbon contains the hardbound Miyelo book, plus the print in acid free envelope.

Go to the eBay auction page for more photos and details, and to bid on this treasure.

My Top 10: Viggo Mortensen

Viggo Mortensen in Entertainment WeeklyThe June 27/July 4 special double issue of Entertainment Weekly features Viggo Mortensen on page 32, offering his top 10 "Pieces of Advice I've Heard on Movie Sets." They start with "One job at a time, and each job a success," and "Whatever you are feeling at this moment can be useful, no matter how far removed or even distracting it may seem from the scene you are playing. That is as close to 'real' as you will ever get." The last is a concise "I love you." My favorite is #6: "All you really need to play the moment is air and water."
