Also new: Postcards from America
In May 2011, five Magnum photographers - Paolo Pellegrin, Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Alec Soth, Mikhael Subotzky - and Ginger Strand set out from Austin, Texas in an RV. Two weeks and 1750 miles later, they arrived in Oakland, California. The resulting limited edition book is a collection of objects - a book, five bumper stickers, a newspaper, two fold-outs, three cards, a poster and five zines, all in a signed and numbered box - that collectively document the experience.

See a video of Alec Soth demonstrating the box set here.
