[Idaho: n.p., 1980]. Unique vernacular photo album and scrapbook, detailing the small town racing culture of Rupert, Idaho. Extraordinarily lavish in size and execution, the album features photographs by Dr. Elvin Cutler, a photography hobbyist of local notoriety recognized for his images of the Minidoka Speedway, its drivers, and attendees. Includes 89 original color and black-and-white photographs, ranging in size from snapshot to 8 X 10 inches, with several larger format prints. Many have been signed by the photographer with his nickname "Doc"; several others have been annotated, with humorous captions written underneath. The book was assembled by members of the town's Magic Valley Stock Car Racing Association and presented to Cutler as a sign of their gratitude and appreciation for his relentless documentation of the Minidoka Speedway, with various pieces of ephemera, including newspapers clippings and flyers from the racetrack, adhered to the album's pages. Contents are housed in an extravagant handmade plywood book, hinged and bolted along the spine gutter. A remarkable collection of amateur photography and vibrant portrait of one of the defining pastimes and national obsessions of small town USA, notable for its stunning photographic compositions and idiosyncratic homespun design. Fine in lightly varnished plywood boards, bound with two metal hinges along the spine gutter, with a photograph adhered to the front cover.
