New York. 1954.55. Photographs, design, and a preface to the new edition by William Klein. Dewi Lewis, Manchester, 1995. 256 pp. Folio. First edition thus. Hardbound in printed dust jacket. Photo-illustrated endpapers. Full-page black-and-white reproductions.
Equally bold in its redesign as the original in its first incarnation! Glossy, full page bleeds and an oversize format make this 1995 re-issue a more than adequate stand in for those without deep enough pockets for a first edition. It contains more than a hundred pages than the 1956 original and dozens of never before published pictures. For Klein, it is, by and large, a thoroughly re-imagined work.
