2019 REPRINT EDITION: It Don’t Mean a Thing is the second volume in The Gould Collection, a series of books that brings together contemporary photographers with writers.

This reprint edition is exactly the same as the 2017 limited edition, except for an updated perfect binding and a cover that condenses the dust-jacket and obi (found in the original limited edition) into a single printed softcover.

Volume two presents fifty-eight photographs by Saul Leiter with the story It Don’t Mean a Thing by Paul Auster. Black-and-white and color photographs by Leiter from 1947 through the 1970s—with many images never before published—are paired with Auster’s tale of interlinked life events and chance encounters. Reflections on New York City, its urban rhythm, people and places, feature prominently in both artists’ work and provide a unifying focus for the book.

It Don’t Mean a Thing: Photographs by Saul Leiter with a Story by Paul Auster is a bilingual publication. Auster’s story, the artists’ biographies and supporting texts are printed in both English and Japanese (with story translation by Motoyuki Shibata).
