The Chop Suey Club. Photographs by Bruce Weber. Arena Editions, Santa Fe, 1999. 288 pp. Quarto. First Edition. Clothbound in photo-illustrated dust jacket. 206 duotone and four-color illustrations.
A quintessential Bruce Weber monograph, The Chop Suey Club is a playful, erotic look at Peter Johnson, a young wrestler from Iowa. The book's pace is astounding, taking the viewer through hundreds of scenes from advertising to pin-up photography, from New York sophistication to the mid-western boy next door.
