An extraordinarily well-produced book on the work of photographer Bruce Weber, known for his unorthodox approach to fashion photography and portraiture. Included here are his fashion photos as well as his personal work. Weber photographs the famous and the beautiful. He accentuates the masculine yet reveals a poignant tenderness. The plates are beautifully printed by the sheet-fed gravure process and include some tinted images. Includes two announcement cards for book signing event at Rizzoli Books in New York.
Some rubbing, soiling and light edge wear to dust jacket; light bumps to corners; one small knick on front cover; book is clean and tight with only very light soiling along lower edge, and slight splaying of boards.
