Photo-illustrated boards with acetate-protected dust jacket. Annie Leibovitz has photographed many of the best known figures of pop culture over the last twenty years.

Women. Photographs by Annie Leibovitz. Text by Susan Sontag. Random House, New York, 1999. 249 pp. First edition. Signed on title page by Annie Leibovitz. Quarto. Hardbound with acetate-protected dust jacket. Includes brief bios of subjects. Moving well beyond her initial fame as a rock & roll correspondent and celebrity caricaturist for Rolling Stone, Women celebrates the evolution of Annie Leibovitz into one of the most formidable portraitists since Richard Avedon. Her portraits of women--from Hillary Clinton in the White House to Tammie Winfield, a victim of domestic violence--are deeply felt, often incorporating their subject's environments in revealing ways. Susan Sontag, in a fully collaborative role as editor and writer, offers her observations on the essential qualities of women in photography. Very Fine in Fine dust jacket.
